Mike Tagliere’s 2019 Quarterback Rankings With Notes (Fantasy Football)
It’s that time of the year, my friends. You’re finally able to go outside because the weather has turned a corner. You’re hosting graduation parties, having some beverages with friends, and enjoying some time with the family. Enjoy the friendships while you can, because before you know it, fantasy season will be here. There are no friendships when it comes to fantasy football.
This is the start of your research for the year. Over the next few days, I’ll be releasing my early positional rankings for 2019. It all starts here with quarterbacks. Should you draft quarterbacks early? No. When is the earliest I’d personally take a quarterback? I’d start to contemplate Aaron Rodgers or Patrick Mahomes around the end of the fourth round, assuming players came off the board like my rankings. While there’s zero chance I’m getting Mahomes there, Rodgers is a real possibility.
One thing I want everyone to understand about quarterbacks is this: Since the start of 2000, there have been just six quarterbacks who’ve delivered top-12 numbers in at least 50 percent of their starts. The odds of a quarterback giving you QB1 numbers more than 50 percent of the time is ridiculously low, so unless you are absolutely positive you have one of those guys, I’d suggest waiting.
