NFL Week 10 is here and so are my quarterback fantasy football rankings.

The Derek Carr vs. Drew Lock showdown unexpectedly brings both firmly into QB1 contention this week. A smattering of quarterbacks like Justin Herbert, Teddy Bridgewater, Lamar Jackson, Ryan Tannehill, and Tua Tagovailoa make for an interesting bunch at the QB1/2 borderline. Carson Wentz’s mid-season ascent hits a skid.
