2020 Fantasy Football Rankings: Quarterbacks for Week 13

Ranking the top 32 QBs for Week 13.

NFL Week 13 is almost here (still that pesky Ravens vs Steelers game to play) and with it comes my fantasy football quarterback rankings for the week.

After last week’s showing against Tampa Bay, Patrick Mahomes is the overall QB1 for the rest of the year.

Will Fuller’s suspension drops Deshaun Watson to the mid-tier QB1 ranks but there’s a chance that Fuller’s (and recently cut Kenny Stills) absence leads to more rushing work for Watson, increasing his fantasy outlook.

A motley crew of Taysom Hill, Kirk Cousins, and Ryan Tannehill take up the last three QB1 spots.

Mike Glennon is on the streaming radar against Minnesota after his solid showing last week.

Colt McCoy is not a great fill-in for Daniel Jones.

Week 13’s 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 DEN After demolishing Tampa Bay's talented defensive unit last week, there's no reason to keep Mahomes out of the QB1 spot for the remainder of the year.
2 Josh Allen BUF at SF Banged up D-Line bodes well for Allen's rushing.
3 Justin Herbert LAC NE Herbert posted his "worst" performance since Week 3 last week, which involved him throwing for over 300 yards.
4 Aaron Rodgers GB PHI Rodgers' should have no issue picking apart the Eagles' lacking pass defense.
5 Ryan Tannehill TEN CLE Great match-up and the Titans' offense is rolling.
6 Deshaun Watson HOU IND The six-game suspension of Will Fuller is a big blow. Depending on whether or not they re-sign Kenny Stills, Watson may rush much more frequently.
7 Kyler Murray ARI LAR Murray's injured shoulder may be decreasing his willingness to run.
8 Ben Roethlisberger PIT WAS Pittsburgh's pass catching corps is unreal.
9 Russell Wilson SEA NYG The day's of Seattle being a pass-first offense appear to be over. Don't say you we didn't warn you.
10 Taysom Hill NO at ATL Hill should feast on ATL's terrible defense.
11 Kirk Cousins MIN JAX Low-key shootout on tap.
12 Ryan Fitzpatrick MIA CIN Terrific match-up and a fearless thrower.
Rank High-Floor/High-Ceiling QB2s Team Opponent Breakdown
13 Lamar Jackson BAL DAL If he's available to play, he has a good match-up. Losing Mark Andrews to COVID-19 potentially increases Jackson's rushing usage.
14 Philip Rivers IND at HOU Good match-up.
15 Mike Glennon JAX at MIN The match-up is good enough for Glennon to considered as a streamer. Hopefully the receiving corps is a little healthier this week.
16 Andy Dalton DAL at BAL Could be a cake walk, depending on what Baltimore's roster is looking like.
17 Baker Mayfield CLE at TEN Outstanding match-up.
18 Mitchell Trubisky CHI DET Trubisky's has found success a number of times when facing Detroit.
19 Matt Ryan ATL NO Potentially a high-scoring affair but will need Julio to return for Ryan to stay this high.
Rank Low-Floor/High-Ceiling QB2s Team Opponent Breakdown
20 Cam Newton NE LAC The biggest boom/bust QB of the year.
21 Jared Goff LAR at ARI Goff's weekly variance is that of a roller coaster. Not a tough match-up though so there's a chance for good results.
22 Derek Carr LV at NYJ The Jets' defense is a cure-all but it's possible they just ride the legs of Josh Jacobs to victory.
23 Carson Wentz PHI at GB Wentz looks dreadful.
24 Alex Smith WAS at PIT It will be tough for Smith to handle Pittsburgh's pass rush.
Rank Low-Floor/Low-Ceiling QB2s Team Opponent Breakdown
25 Matthew Stafford DET at CHI Brutal match-up. Here's hoping Kenny Golladay (hip) returns to the lineup.
26 Nick Mullens SF BUF Tough match-up.
27 Sam Darnold NYJ LV Both teams have good pass catchers and bad pass defenses so there's hope for a shootout. Head coach Adam Gase is off the rails though so Darnold is tough to trust.
28 Drew Lock DEN at KC Banking on garbage time is never a good option.
29 Colt McCoy NYG at SEA Cake match-up but horrible player.
30 Brandon Allen CIN at MIA Brutal match-up.
