With under 50 days until the start of the NFL season, its time to start breaking out the positional rankings to help you with your draft boards so you can crush your drafts. I’m starting with the quarterback position and will drop each position group as we go through the next month.

I’ve written recently about Jimmy Garoppolo and Ryan Tannehill being guys I keep drafting when I go for a late round quarterback options, as well as my view who will be this year’s version of some of 2019’s top quarterbacks, so you should be pretty well covered when identifying who to draft in 2020.

2020 Redraft QB Rankings

Rank Name Team Bye Notes
Rank Name Team Bye Notes
1 Pat Mahomes KC 10 The best player in the league regains his top fantasy qb crown
2 Lamar Jackson BAL 8 Jackson barely misses a beat and leads all qbs in rushing again
3 Kyler Murray ARI 8 Murray steps up in year 2 and gets a boost from the addition of an elite receiver to throw to
4 Deshaun Watson HOU 8 Watson doesn't miss a beat even without Deandre Hopkins in town
5 Russell Wilson SEA 6 Wilson remains a top-5 fantasy QB asset with top-3 upside
6 Dak Prescott DAL 10 Dak remains eilte as he plays for his big contract
7 Matt Ryan ATL 10 The league's most pass-happy offense means Ryan is a QB1 in 2020
8 Carson Wentz PHI 9 With a healthy receiving corps, Wentz has an uptick this season
9 Josh Allen BUF 11 Allen's rushing prowess keeps him a top-10 asset in 2020
10 Daniel Jones NYG 11 Danny Dimes will be throwing lots in New York and will put up big numbers
11 Matthew Stafford DET 5 Stafford picks up where he left off in 2019
12 Aaron Rodgers GB 5 Green Bay's commitment to run impacts Rodgers' 2020 output
13 Jared Goff LAR 9 Goff's floor makes him a borderline QB1
14 Jimmy Garoppolo SF 11 Kyle Shanahan is a genius and Jimmy could crack the top-10 if things fall right
15 Ryan Tannehill TEN 7 I'm backing Tannehill to keep his 2019 renaissance going
16 Tom Brady TB 13 Brady is no longer elite but servicable with a weapons upgrade
17 Baker Mayfield CLE 9 The pieces are there but I'm not convinced Mayfield puts it all together
18 Drew Brees NO 6 Brees has to do less in one of the league's best all-round teams
19 Ben Roethlisberger PIT 8 Could be a steal in 2020 redraft if fully healthy
20 Cam Newton CAR 13 I want Cam to be back to his best but there's too many questions to rank him higher
21 Kirk Cousins MIN 7 Losing Diggs impacts Cousins' fantasy worth in 2020
22 Drew Lock DEN 8 I'm not convinced Lock steps up in year 2 and will be match up dependent
23 Joe Burrow CIN 9 As for any rookie, there will be teething problems but he has the talent to be a spot starter in year 1
24 Sam Darnold NYJ 11 Loads of potential but not yet a proven fantasy asset
25 Philip Rivers IND 7 A new home and improved line but Rivers' best fantasy days are behind him
