Fantasy Football Draft Advice: Justin Fields, Kyler Murray, Jordan Love (2024)

While the 2024 fantasy football redraft season is still months away, FantasyPros already has rankings up. One of FantasyPros’ awesome features is the standard deviation tool that gives fantasy players an idea of how much of a consensus there is among the experts regarding a certain player.

Today, I look at three quarterbacks and three tight ends with a higher standard deviation, examine the argument or reasoning behind the disagreement among the experts, and give my opinion on whether the player is ranked too high or too low in the rankings.

Top 6 Most Polarizing Quarterbacks & Tight Ends to Draft (2024 Fantasy Football)

Justin Fields (QB – CHI)

QB9 | 2.7 STD. DEV

It’s easy to understand why Fields is a polarizing player for the experts, as we don’t know which team he will play for next season. Many thought the former Ohio State star would have a breakout year in 2023 with the arrival of DJ Moore. Instead, his passing numbers didn’t take much of a jump while his rushing production severely declined. The only way I’m drafting Fields as a top-10 quarterback next season is if he remains with the Chicago Bears and they draft Marvin Harrison Jr.

Kyler Murray (QB – ARI)

QB11 | 1.9 STD. DEV

While he missed half of the 2023 season recovering from a torn ACL, Murray was the QB9 on a points-per-game basis (18.3) among quarterbacks with at least six starts. The former Oklahoma star was the QB7 on a points-per-game basis in 2022 and a top-10 quarterback every year of his career before suffering the torn ACL. Murray will be over a year removed from the torn ACL next season and likely have an elite rookie receiver added to his receiving core, making him a steal as the QB11 in the rankings.

Jordan Love (QB – GB)

QB13 | 2.0 STD. DEV

Love’s first year as the starter had some significant up-and-down swings. However, he ended the season as the QB5, averaging 18.8 fantasy points per game, a higher average than Patrick Mahomes, C.J. Stroud and Brock Purdy. The former Utah State star had 32 passing touchdowns, totaling nearly twice as many games with two or more passing scores (11) than one or fewer (six). Love is criminally underrated in the rankings, as he should only get better as he and his young receiving core develop.
