We’re onto NFL Week 7 and with it comes my fantasy football quarterback rankings.

A vintage Drew Brees box score should be on display this week as New Orleans takes on Carolina. Gardner Minshew continues providing fantasy managers with can’t-lose floor numbers. Carson Wentz is working his way back into our fantasy hearts. Andy Dalton takes a tumble.

Week 7 Tiered Quarterback Rankings

Rank High Floor/High Ceiling QB1s Team Opponent Breakdown
Rank High Floor/High Ceiling QB1s Team Opponent Breakdown
1 Patrick Mahomes KC at DEN Denver's defense doesn't stand a chance.
2 Josh Allen BUF at NYJ This Jets team is one of the world teams in the history of the sport.
3 Kyler Murray ARI SEA Even if Jamal Adams is able to play, Murray is a Top 5 option at worst.
4 Russell Wilson SEA at ARI QB duel on tap.
5 Deshaun Watson HOU GB Sans Bill O'Brien, Deshuan Watson is on fire.
6 Cam Newton NE SF His rushing touchdown factor keeps him firmly locked into the QB1 ranks.
7 Ben Roethlisberger PIT at TEN The Titans' hapless secondary doesn't stand a chance.
8 Justin Herbert LAC JAX The dual threat quarterback will have a field day against the hapless Jags.
9 Matt Ryan ATL DET With Julio seemingly back to a reasonable level of health, the Falcons' offense is humming again.
10 Drew Brees NO CAR Brees' play-makers will inflate his box score with run-after-catch numbers.
11 Matthew Stafford DET at ATL Outstanding match-up.
12 Ryan Tannehill TEN PIT Brutal match-up but this offense is dominating opposing defenses.
Rank High Floor/High Ceiling QB2s Team Opponent Breakdown
13 Gardner Minshew JAX at LAC The Chargers' defense is not yet healthy enough to be concerning.
14 Aaron Rodgers GB at HOU Great match-up but the health of left tackle David Bakhtiari's chest injury is pivotal.
15 Teddy Bridgewater CAR at NO QB duel on tap.
16 Tom Brady TB at LV Great opportunity for multiple touchdowns against a useless Raiders defense.
17 Joe Burrow CIN CLE Tyler Boyd should have himself a day.
Rank High Floor/Capped Ceiling QB2s Team Opponent Breakdown
18 Carson Wentz PHI NYG Wentz has been getting it done for fantasy purposes with some scrappy play.
19 Baker Mayfield CLE at CIN Good enough match-up for Odell Beckham Jr. to buoy him.
20 Jimmy Garoppolo SF NE The offense got back on track last week but this is a tough match-up.
21 Andy Dalton DAL at WAS Great match-up, offensive line... and a bad quarterback.
22 Jared Goff LAR CHI Tough spot but the system is strong.
23 Nick Foles CHI at LAR The Rams' defense has been nasty.
24 Kyle Allen WAS DAL Great match-up but the pass catching group is lacking.
Rank High Floor/Capped Ceiling QB3s Team Opponent Breakdown
25 Derek Carr LV TB The Raiders were able to activate 4 of their 5 starting offensive linemen from the COVID Reserve List on Saturday. They're still facing the Buccaneers defense though.
26 Sam Darnold NYJ BUF The Darnold-to-Crowder link is in full effect.
27 Daniel Jones NYG at PHI If the rushing floor sticks, he'll be relevant.
28 Drew Lock DEN KC The errant cannon will make some noise.
