Fantasy Football: QB depth chart and rankings

Keeping track of quarterback depth charts around the league.

Rankings: QB | HB | WR | TE

It’s always important to keep an eye on team’s depth charts in the fantasy world. There’s nothing more frustrating than wasting a draft pick on a player who is buried in the depth chart and, unless a plague sweeps the team, has no real chance at seeing consistent playing time during the season.

Here is the quarterback depth chart of all 32 teams. Obviously those signal callers labeled Starter are currently set to be leading their team come September. For each QB, I’ve also attached a Value to them (where I see their fantasy value currently at): QB1 (top 10), QB2 (11-25) and Don’t Bother (pretty self explanatory). Backup is who is currently behind the starter on team’s depth chart. I’ve also given my initial value for each of these quarterbacks as well if either the starter is injured or their name is Blake Bortles and will be benched within the first three months of the season. How’s that for a bold prediction? For backups I’ve also added a Waiver value, which means worth a potential pickup.


Note: Depth chart will be updated throughout offseason.
