One might think it’s silly for rest-of-season rankings to still be coming out in mid-November, but this is the final full week of the regular season before not only Thanksgiving, but the trade deadline in ESPN leagues. This is when one probably needs the most help. Just seven weeks remain and, for most fantasy managers, it’s going to be a lot less than that. So get in there and take one writer’s opinion for what it is, and try to improve your teams!
Seattle’s Russell Wilson and Philadelphia’s Carson Wentz are the top two scorers from this position for the season, with the No. 1-ranked guy in sixth place. So why does Tom Brady continue to keep the top spot? Well, Brady is having a terrific season. He’s on pace for more than 5,000 passing yards. He has thrown just two interceptions. His remaining schedule, except for a Week 15 game in Pittsburgh, sure doesn’t seem to be too difficult. It looks far more challenging for Wilson and Wentz, but these guys have been excellent in fantasy all season. Don’t forget about some of the others you can count on who moved up this week, such as the Rams’ Jared Goff, the Jets’ Josh McCown and even Indianapolis' Jacoby Brissett. Hey, he’s the No. 13 quarterback for the season!
Later in the quarterback rankings, there might seem to be a few strange names, including three Denver passers, but we know some of you play in more challenging two-QB formats or in leagues where quarterbacks can be a flex option. Minnesota’s Case Keenum is one spot ahead of Teddy Bridgewater, but I do expect that to change soon. Bridgewater is going to play. San Francisco’s Jimmy Garoppolo remains ranked. He should play as well. Those relying on Buffalo’s Tyrod Taylor won’t like this, but it sure seems like rookie Nathan Peterman could get his chance soon if Taylor doesn’t turn things around.
