The QB Hierarchy: Week 17

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. Aaron Rodgers @ DET
  2. Matt Ryan v. NO
  3. Drew Brees @ AL

  1. Russell Wilson @ SF
  2. Matt Stafford v. GB
  3. Andrew Luck v. JAX
  4. Tom Brady @ MIA

  6. Jamies Winston v. CAR
