2016 Fantasy Football Rankings: Quarterback

The quarterbacks are a tough group to pin down this season as we saw a couple of top-flight options fall back to the pack in 2015. The top tier spans the top-7 names in these rankings, with Tom Brady’s impending four-game suspension the only thing keeping him out of that group.

Eli Manning bounced back nicely from an awful 2013 season with a pair of 30+ TD, 4400-yard campaigns. Amazing what an all-world talent on the outside can do for you. Year three under Ben McAdoo should be more of the same.

Blake Bortles at 15 likely represents the biggest surprise out of the top two tiers, but after leading the league in interceptions during his breakout sophomore campaign it’s hard to imagine that the Jags coaching staff allows him to lead the league in red zone passing attempts for a second straight season. With the offseason addition of Chris Ivory signaling a more run-heavy approach for 2016, Bortles sits behind veterans Matt Ryan, Andy Dalton, Philip Rivers and Kirk Cousins as well as fellow sophomore Derek Carr.
