New, comments

Kyler Murray breakout game!?

The Mahomes, Watson, Jackson trio stays intact at the top. Russell Wilson and Kyler Murray are coming for them though. Matt Ryan’s likely to set the league on fire this week and Matthew Stafford gets rudely onto the south side of the QB1/2 fringes. Abandon hope, all ye who enter Baker Mayfield into their lineups.

Byes: Buffalo, Indy, Oakland, Chicago

Week 6 Quarterback Rankings

Rank Quarterback Team Opponent High Floor/High Ceiling QB1s
Rank Quarterback Team Opponent High Floor/High Ceiling QB1s
1 Patrick Mahomes KC HOU A get-right spot for the best quarterback in football.
2 Deshaun Watson HOU at KC Watson has the pleasure of answering every TD Mahomes scores with one of his own.
3 Lamar Jackson BAL CIN Ceiling game incoming against the Cincy's nonexistent defense.
4 Russell Wilson SEA at CLE RW continues to flash his HoF-level talent.
5 Kyler Murray ARI ATL Muarry's finally utilizing his blazing speed and the ATL defense is ready for him to carve them up.
6 Tom Brady NE NYG Given the low-scoring nature of Thursday games, Brady drops from a would-be No. 4 ranking, past Wilson and Murray.
7 Dak Prescott DAL at NYJ Gallup's return gave Dak his deep-ball back.
8 Matt Ryan ATL at ARI Ryan's out here shouting, "This is Sparta!", refusing to throw for fewer than 300 yards in a game this season.
9 Jameis Winston TB CAR Winston remains a back-end QB1 in this divisonal showdown.
10 Carson Wentz PHI at MIN The matchup drops him to the QB11 spot.
11 Aaron Rodgers GB DET Davante Adams' potential return would help Rodgers meet this ranking. We'll monitor his practice availability and keep you all posted.
12 Philip Rivers LAC PIT This is a bounceback game for the typically reliable Rivers.
High Floor Capped Ceiling QB2s
13 Jared Goff LAR SF The McVay system should carry him once again in this one. It's likely he takes a few sacks though.
14 Matthew Stafford DET at GB GB's pass defense has been hit or miss lately and Stafford's playing very well.
15 Kirk Cousins MIN PHI Cousins had a decent showing last week and should be able to keep things going again an injury riddled Eagles secondary.
16 Andy Dalton CIN at BAL Baltimore's secondary has been mighty generous to opposing passing offenses.
17 Gardner Minshew II JAX NO It's a tough test for Mr. Consistent.
18 Marcus Mariota TEN at DEN Mariota stayed interception-less last week and Denver's defense is tough, only in name.
19 Teddy Bridgewater NO at JAX Bridgewater finally had a boom game last week and Jalen Ramsey's likely absence bodes well for his chance to do it again this week.
20 Jimmy Garoppolo SF at SF The Rams have been rolled out very boom/bust pass defense performances this year, the latter two games being busts.
21 Baker Mayfield CLE SEA Fingers crossed that HC Freddie Kitchens in check and turns over playcalling duties to Todd Monken.
22 Joe Flacco DEN TEN Flacco quietly has a stellar WR duo to work with in Emmanuel Sanders and Cortland Sutton.
23 Kyle Allen CAR at TB Teddy Bridgwater just hung 314 passing yards, 4 TDs, and just 1 pick on them.
24 Daniel Jones NYG at NE Bill Belichick is likely to make it a tough day at the office for the rookie.
Shaky Floor/Capped Ceiling QB3s
25 Case Keenum WAS at MIA Turns out, Keenum gets the nod to be Adrian Peterson's hander-offer.
26 Sam Darnold NYJ DAL A tough game to come back to, assuming he's cleared.
27 Josh Rosen MIA WAS Rosen's got a shot to finish as a back-end QB2 given the matchup. A QB3 finish is much more likely though.
28 Devlin Hodges PIT at LAC The Chargers D/ST is going to put up some serious points.
