Marcus Mariota

Despite starting for the Falcons, Marcus Mariota doesn't have significant fantasy value

As our consensus #30 QB, Marcus Mariota isn't really relevant in 1QB leagues. Dispite his low rank, his role as the starting QB for the Falcons means he should be owned in 2QB leagues.Mariota is expected to earn 22% of his projected 213 fantasy points by rushing. That's a substantial portion of his fantasy value, and could give him a more stable floor than similarly-ranked QBs. With a projection of 11.3 interceptions compared to 15.7 passing touchdowns, he carries more interception risk than is comfortable.
