With NFL Week 14 upon us, here are my quarterback fantasy football rankings.
Ryan Tannehill remains a top five option in fantasy crunch time.
Taysom Hill’s rushing floor is impenetrable.
The top half of the QB2s features a bevvy of usable streamers, as well as some fallen studs.
Are Sam Darnold and Mike Glennon legitimate streaming options?
Week 14’s Tiered Quarterback Rankings
|1||Patrick Mahomes||KC||at MIA||Miami's secondary is no slouch but KC has the pass catching tools at TE and RB to negate most of its bite.|
|2||Josh Allen||BUF||PIT||Key defensive injuries drop the Pittsburgh unit just a tad.|
|3||Russell Wilson||SEA||NYJ||Efficiency will be the name of the game here. Expect Wilson to rack up points throughout the 1st-half before the team eases off the gas pedal in the 2nd.|
|4||Aaron Rodgers||GB||at DET||The only thing working against Rodgers here is game script as the Detroit is the most-RB friendly defense in the league.|
|5||Ryan Tannehill||TEN||at JAX||Tannehill looks like a league winner. Tennessee's god awful defense keeps the offense is pass-mode and Tannehill's got a bevvy of stellar pass catchers and back-to-back weak defenses on tap.|
|6||Deshaun Watson||HOU||at CHI||Very tough match-up but the loss of Will Fuller has coaxed out Watson's rushing ability.|
|7||Lamar Jackson||BAL||at CLE||Jackson got his season back on track in Week 13 and all it took was a COVID-19 outbreak that left his pass catching corps barren. Depending on the team's status on Monday, Jackson may have another rush-heavy workload.|
|8||Tom Brady||TB||MIN||A date with Minnesota's defense brings surefire QB1 prospects.|
|9||Taysom Hill||NO||at PHI||If Terron Armstead is able to return, look out. Hill is a fantasy force to be reckoned with at this point.|
|10||Justin Herbert||LAC||ATL||Theoretically this is a can't-miss opportunity but head coach Anthony Lynn's uninspiring "we probably won't make the playoffs" speech* last week -- when they were still in contention to make the playoffs -- clearly had an adverse effect on the team. They then lost 45-0.|
|11||Ben Roethlisberger||PIT||at BUF||Talented defense but this game will be a high pace, high scoring affair.|
|12||Teddy Bridgewater||CAR||DEN||An entirely unimposing match-up and Bridgewater is off of the injury report.|
|13||Kirk Cousins||MIN||at TB||Tampa Bay's defense has struggled in recent weeks but it's possible they get back on track at any moment. Regardless, this should be a high-scoring shootout.|
|14||Andy Dalton||DAL||at CIN||Dallas's pass catching corps should light up the hapless Bengals defense.|
|15||Philip Rivers||IND||at LV||Great match-up, very high floor.|
|16||Kyler Murray||ARI||at NYG||Retiscent to rush since his shoulder injury and now facing New York's lock-down defense, Murray offers letdown potential.|
|17||Baker Mayfield||CLE||BAL||Not as tough of a match-up as it may appear. Potential game script more of negative for Mayfield than the defense he's facing.|
|18||Mike Glennon||JAX||TEN||Great match-up, a fearless passer, and excellent pass catching weapons.|
|19||Cam Newton||NE||at LAR||Very tough match-up.|
|20||Mitchell Trubisky||CHI||HOU||Great match-up.|
|21||Daniel Jones||NYG||ARI||Jones could find room to run against the Cards' banged up front-seven.|
|22||Matthew Stafford||DET||GB||Tough match-up and we need to monitor Kenny Golladay's availability.|
|23||Sam Darnold||NYJ||at SEA||Given the Adam Gase factor, Darnold can't go too high in the rankings. Against the league's worst pass defense, Seattle, Darnold does deserve strong streaming consideration though. Darnold has access to a Top 12 finish this week.|
|24||Jalen Hurts||PHI||NO||Tough match-up but we sure do love a solid rushing floor.|
|25||Jared Goff||LAR||NE||Bill Belichick knows how to derail the Rams' offense.|
|26||Matt Ryan||ATL||at LAC||Julio Jones isn't fully healthy and Ryan struggles to perform without him at 100%. Decent match-up though.|
|27||Drew Lock||DEN||at CAR||Great match-up but it's possible that Denver keeps pace via the ground game.|
|28||Derek Carr||LV||IND||Brutal match-up.|
|29||Tua Tagovailoa||MIA||KC||Tough match-up.|
|30||Nick Mullens||SF||WAS||Washington's defense is playing lights out right now.|
|31||Alex Smith||WAS||at SF||SF's defense + Smith's propensity for checking down to J.D. McKissic, sans Antonio Gibson, caps Smith's ceiling.|
|32||Brandon Allen||CIN||DAL||Viable only as a contrarian DFS option in an albeit good match-up.|
