The QB Heirarchy – Week 17

DISCLAIMER: Some teams are going to sit starters. Some are not but should. This list will be comprised of normal starters. As of now we know Alex Smith, Ben Roethlisberger, and Jared Goff will not be playing, however, I am not going to dive into figuring out how many quarters Tom Brady would play if New England demolishes the Jets. Here are the quarterback rankings based on the information we have up until this point.

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. Here we go:

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

1. Tom Brady vs NYJ

2. Russell Wilson vs ARI

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