Football is right around the corner, and we all know that means. It is time to dive back into Fantasy Football mock drafts and rankings. Leading up to all of our Fantasy Football drafts, I am going to dive into the top 10 players at every position that should be on your radar in every draft. All of my rankings will be based off of a PPR League. Starting off with my Top 10 Fantasy quarterbacks for this season, here they are:
1. Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills
2021 Fantasy Points: 402.58 Points (17 Games)
Allen is without a doubt the #1 overall QB in fantasy this year. The best fantasy player last season and produced those most fantasy points. What really has separated him from the rest of the QBs? The ground game. One of the best Quarterbacks on the ground the last few seasons putting up 763 rushing yards and 6 rushing TDs last season. Leading one of the best teams in the NFL this season. And if that is not enough to convince you, I know you all remember the Bills vs. Chiefs game last season.
2. Justin Herbert, Los Angeles Chargers
2021 Fantasy Points: 380.76 Points (17 Games)
Herbert has the opportunity to lead a top offense in the NFL this season. In my opinion, Herbert is going into a MVP caliber season which makes him that much more valuable in the fantasy world. Yes, the Chargers are in the toughest division in football. But that will elevate Herbert’s game to another level. Just like last year, I can see Herbert leading the AFC in passing yards and touchdowns with the weapons he has around him.
3. Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs
2021 Fantasy Points: 361.66 Points (17 Games)
Mahomes has been a top 5 fantasy QB year after year, and he will be right at the top of fantasy once again. Yes, he is losing his top target in Tyreek Hill. But, the Chiefs have added a handful of more targets around him in JuJu Smith, Valdes-Scantling, and Skye Moore. Lets not forget he still has the best tight end in the game with Travis Kelce and also some experience with Mecole Hardman. Mahomes is looking to prove he doesn’t need Hill to stay at an elite level.
4. Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens
2021 Fantasy Points: 239.98 Points (12 Games)
The only thing that is going to hold back Lamar Jackson this season is injuries throughout the whole Ravens team. Last season, the whole Ravens team was hit with a handful of injuries but still managed to compete. In just 12 games, Jackson still managed to avg. just around 20 points per week. One main trend you can see here with these top QBs to pick in your fantasy drafts, they are all Dual Threat QBs and Lamar Jackson is at the top of that list.
5. Tom Brady, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
2021 Fantasy Points: 374.74 Points (17 Games)
At 45 years old this season, Tom Brady cracks my top 5 of Fantasy Quarterbacks. After a short time away from the game (a month) Brady is back and wants nothing less than a Super Bowl. Last season, he statistically had his best season of his career. But he is looking to one up that and do everything he can to win this year and end his career on top. Loaded with weapons, potentially getting back a healthy Chris Godwin and adding a veteran receiver with Julio Jones. The GOAT will continue to put up massive numbers.
6. Kyler Murray, Arizona Cardinals
2021 Fantasy Points: 300.48 Points (14 Games)
Murray finally got the deal he wanted and inked a 5 year 230 million dollar deal. One of the top Dual Threat QBs in the NFL, this really pushes up his value in fantasy football. Murray did get injured last year which affected his ground game but if he stays healthy this season, he will be one of the top Fantasy QBs to have on your roster. The only downfall is Murray and the Cardinals forget how to play Football during the second half of the season.
7. Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles
2021 Fantasy Points: 312.16 Points (15 Games)
This may be a shock to some to see Hurts in the Top 10, but it shouldn’t. It is starting to sound repetitive, but the main trend of the top fantasy QBs is dual threat and putting the ball on the ground. Jalen Hurts checks that box and proved it last season, putting up over 700 rushing yards and leading all the QBs on this list with 10 rushing touchdowns. His value in fantasy this year is trending up. And we will get to see it first hand Week 1 here in Detroit.
8. Russell Wilson, Denver Broncos
2021 Fantasy Points: 242.82 Points (14 Games)
Mr. Unlimited. New team and throwback Wilson incoming. Before last season Wilson was consistently a top 10 Fantasy Player. This season he goes right back to that same player we are used to seeing. With new weapons around him in Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy. A fresh start is going to revive Wilson this season. As long as he can stay healthy he should put up big fantasy numbers this season. As always, BRONCOS COUNTRY, LETS RIDE.
9. Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys
2021 Fantasy Points: 320.56 Points (16 Games)
As much as we all think the Cowboys hype is all a fraud. Prescott still puts up massive numbers year after year. Even coming off a major injury Prescott still posted 4,400 yards and 37 TDs last season. Even know we have no clue what the Cowboys will be this season, what we do know is last year they averaged over 31 ppg last season which was #1 in the NFL. So, we know that Prescott will put up points even in a Cowboys loss.
10. Joe Burrow, Cincinnati Bengals
2021 Fantasy Points: 314.24 Points (16 Games)
Closing out the Top 10 Joe Burrow is a no brainer. We all got to see him on the big stage last season leading the Bengals to a Super Bowl. Posting some of the biggest fantasy numbers in a week last season, Burrow will be coming into this season even more confident and that much more chemistry with these receivers he has around him. Having arguably the best receiving core in the NFL with Chase, Higgins, and Boyd. Don’t be surprised if Joe “Shiesty” cracks the top 5 of fantasy QBs this season.
