What does yours truly do during the MLB All-Star break? Dip his toes back into the fantasy football waters, of course! What follows is my first pass at the top 36 signal-callers. And while research was conducted in order to flesh out this first rankings set, if you have some form of “beef” you’ll have to hit me up in the comments. We are just beginning to heat up with football content here at Fake Teams, so be sure to keep circling the proverbial wagons back around.

One guy it looks like I’m “high” on is Tua...not even going to spell the last name. But I love the coaching staff there, and that’s a deep stable of weapons (even if the WR corps is murky). Whatever cream rises to the top should be quality. Anyway, once it gets murky in the ranks I love taking shots on young guys with upside...Tua is that for me.

As of right now, I’m ranking Aaron Rodgers as if he’ll be a Packer. And Deshaun Watson is off of my draft board, though I included him here in this space just as a talking point. I love Tyrod “TyGod” Taylor as a dart-throw QB3 if your format allows for such speculation. But given the moving parts, expect a refreshing of said rankings as the offseason wears on.

Who is YOUR favorite fantasy football sleeper at the QB position? Haggle away in the comments!
