Week 14 Rankings (2020): Top 25 Quarterbacks

1637

It always seems that the football season passes in the blink of an eye, and while 2020 has been a season like no other that is one thing that’s been no different. For many Week 14 marks the start of the fantasy playoffs, only adding to the pressure on every decision. Who are the quarterbacks that should be trusted? Who is far too risky to buy into? Let’s take a look:

  1. Aaron Rodgers – Green Bay Packers – at Detroit
  2. Patrick Mahomes – Kansas City Chiefs – at Miami
  3. Deshaun Watson – Houston Texans – at Chicago
  4. Russell Wilson – Seattle Seahawks – vs. New York Jets
  5. Justin Herbert – Los Angeles Chargers – vs. Atlanta
  6. Kyler Murray – Arizona Cardinals – at New York Giants
  7. Ryan Tannehill – Tennessee Titans – at Jacksonville
  8. Lamar Jackson – Baltimore Ravens – at Cleveland
  9. Josh Allen – Buffalo Bills – vs. Pittsburgh
  10. Tom Brady – Tampa Bay Buccaneers – vs. Minnesota
  11. Ben Roethlisberger – Pittsburgh Steelers – at Buffalo
  12. Matt Ryan – Atlanta Falcons – at Los Angeles Chargers
  13. Philip Rivers – Indianapolis Colts – at Las Vegas
  14. Kirk Cousins – Minnesota Vikings – at Tampa Bay
  15. Taysom Hill – New Orleans Saints – at Philadelphia
  16. Teddy Bridgewater – Carolina Panthers – vs. Denver
  17. Baker Mayfield – Cleveland Browns – vs. Baltimore
  18. Matthew Stafford – Detroit Lions – vs. Green Bay
  19. Andy Dalton – Dallas Cowboys – at Cincinnati
  20. Cam Newton – New England Patriots – at Los Angeles Rams
  21. Jared Goff – Los Angeles Rams – vs. New England
  22. Derek Carr – Las Vegas Raiders – vs. Indianapolis
  23. Sam Darnold – New York Jets – at Seattle
  24. Mitchell Trubisky – Chicago Bears – vs. Houston
  25. Tua Tagovailoa – Miami Dolphins – vs. Kansas City

Thoughts:

  • Does anyone believe the Detroit Lions can slow down Aaron Rodgers and company? He’s thrown for multiple touchdowns in all but one game this season, and has nine games with at least 3 TD. His 36 TD lead the league and Detroit entered the week having allowed 23 TD to opposing QB (they only allowed the Bears to connect on 1 passing TD, this week though that doesn’t say much).
  • The Chicago Bears have generally been a solid defense this season, but they’ve allowed 7 TD to opposing QB over the past two weeks. That matchup should yield more big results for Deshaun Watson, after he proved he can produce gaudy numbers even with a questionable receiving corps (341 yards in Week 13). Don’t make the mistake of downgrading him.
  • While we will have a hard time sitting Josh Allen (vs. Pittsburgh) and Kyler Murray (at New York Giants), the matchups obviously prove difficult. While it’s hard to envision the Giants stopping Murray, after they contained Russell Wilson in Week 13 it’s fair to be skeptical.
  • It’s easy to buy into the hot rookie, but we have to remember that there will be bumps along the way. We saw that for Justin Herbert in Week 13, as the Patriots held him to 26-53 with 209 yards, 0 TD and 2 INT. It was a highly disappointing performance, but it’s fair to expect a rebound against the Falcons who entered Week 13 having allowed the most points per week to opposing QB (before allowing a pair of TD passes to Taysum Hill and the Saints).
  • The Las Vegas Raiders allowed Sam Darnold to throw for 2 TD in Week 13. What does that mean for the prospects of Phillip Rivers? He may not be a must start, but he needs to be on QB1 radars.

  1. What up roto! Can’t believe playoffs are here!

    Murray or tannehill??!!
    Need 2 WR. Mclaurin, Kupp, AB, Beasley (putting my waiver for him)
    Flex: anyone left from WR plus drake
    Tucker or bass?
    I have Pittsburgh d but should I pick up Dallas or TB instead?

    • For the QB it’s surprisingly close, but I couldn’t sit Murray with my season on the line

      For WR I’d go McLaurin & Kupp (w/Beasley right behind)

      FLEX – Drake

      K – Tucker

      D – I’m stickng with Pitt

  2. The Taysom Hill ranking seems incredibly low given his results since taking over. Is there something specific you are forecasting there? I can’t imagine not starting him over most you have ranked above.

    • He’s thrown 2 TD passes over his starts, I can’t say that he’s locked in as a must start. I could def. see using him depending on scoring and your comfort with him, but I can’t view him as a must start

  3. 14 Team, 1/2 PPR, 2nd Seed

    1. Teddy Bridgewater or Andy dalton?

    2. WR 1/2 DeAndre hopkins, Stefan diggs. RB 1/2 Nick chubb, Kareem hunt. Who would you flex of JD McKissic, Gus edwards, Allan Lazard, Ty Johnson or T.Y. Hilton?

    Thank you for even helping me get this far!!!

    • (DeAndre Washington, Russell Gage and Jeff Wilson Jr are available free agents but I’m assuming that I have better options on my bench?)

    • 1) Bridgewater

      2) I don’t like any of them for FLEX. I guess I’d go Lazard, but Washington is an intriguing alternative)
