Week 9 QB Rankings

DaltonJones

Welcome to Week 9! These are our QB rankings from 1-35, particularly for deep leagues and 2QB/Superflex leagues.

With six teams on bye this week, it was particularly difficult to rank 35 quarterbacks. The deep picks on these rankings should be avoided if at all possible, because their only chance at fantasy relevance is for an injury to hit the QB playing ahead of them.

This week will see a few new faces at quarterback, and as this article goes live we still aren’t sure just which ones will be starting. These are our rankings as of Wednesday morning; as always, keep up with the latest news this week to see which quarterbacks are benched and which aren’t healthy enough to start.

Aaron Rodgers (GB) – The Packers offense hasn’t been as explosive as expected this season, and they face another tough matchup on the road in Carolina this week. That said, if you own Aaron Rodgers, you’re starting him anyway.

Tyrod Taylor (BUF) – Lake would have Taylor even higher this week, but regardless, he looks like a solid QB1 option this week now that he is healthy and returning to action.

Geno Smith/Ryan Fitzpatrick (NYJ) – If either starts, they make for an intriguing QB2 play, but it is too early to say whether either will be healthy enough to give it a go. If not, and if Bryce Petty starts, avoid him at all costs this week.

Blaine Gabbert (SF) – None of us expect him to save the 49ers. This is a team in a downward spiral, and Gabbert is not the quarterback to right that ship. Avoid him.
