2024 Fantasy Football Rankings Breakdown: Quarterbacks

Our initial 2024 projections have been released, so it’s time to go position-by-position and briefly explain what I’m seeing as the draft season starts to take shape.

The Top 6

It does appear that there is quite a bit of depth at the quarterback position this season, but there is an elite tier. There are six quarterbacks projected for more than 300 points: Josh Allen, Jalen Hurts, Lamar Jackson, Patrick Mahomes, C.J. Stroud, and Anthony Richardson.

I have Anthony Richardson ranked right at his early ADP (QB6), but I’m guessing the average manager might be a little reluctant to draft him so early given his small sample size of games played.

Richardson only played two full games and was knocked out of two other games before halftime, but he still showed flashes of fantasy superstardom accounting for seven touchdowns in roughly 2.6 games worth of action. He posted the highest fantasy points per attempt (passing + rushing) in the league. The Colts re-signed Michael Pittman and drafted another weapon, Adonai Mitchell, and should have a healthy Jonathan Taylor in the fold. Only time will tell if Richardson is more of an injury risk than other quarterbacks, but studies have shown that mobile quarterbacks aren’t injured at a higher rate than “pocket” quarterbacks.
