The QB Hierarchy: Week 6

Each week we will release “The Hierarchy” for each position. The Hierarchy will release players rank according to where we at NoHuddle believe they will fall for that particular week using a tiered system. The higher the tier, the better off, the lower the tier, the more you want to stay away from those players. All rankings are based on upcoming opponent, past performances, and projections for the current week and will be updated as the week progresses. Here we go:

The Kings: (Represent the Elite at their position for the week- Top End QBs):

  1. Cam Newton @ NO
  2. Tom Brady vs. CIN
  3. Ben Roethlisberger @ MIA

The Princes: (Represent the QBs that should still perform at QB1 levels):

  1. Russell Wilson vs. ATL
  2. Aaron Rodgers vs. DAL
  3. Drew Brees vs. CAR
  4. Carson Palmer vs. NYJ
  5. Trevor Siemian @ SD
  6. Dak Prescott @ GB
  7. Alex Smith @ OAK

The Dukes: (Represent the QBs that should perform at QB2 levels with a chance to sneak into Prince and King territory):
