2016 Fantasy Football PPR Rankings: Week 8 Quarterbacks

Ranking the Week 8 quarterbacks.

Bye Week hell is upon us, which is doubly concerning when it’s win or go home for many fantasy owners. No one wants their lone source of excitement and joy stripped from their life, so make sure you lock up a win with the best PPR rankings in the business.

Tier 1 – Potential Top Scorer

1) Tom Brady (NE) @ BUF

Tier 2 – High-end QB1s

2) Aaron Rodgers (GB) @ ATL – Just to repeat myself: the Packers are going to chuck the rock 45+ times in any competitive game, and Atlanta certainly fits that bill. Expect extreme volume and thus output for Rodgers.

3) Matt Ryan (ATL) vs. GB

4) Andrew Luck (IND) vs. KC

5) Cam Newton (CAR) vs. ARI

6) Jameis Winston (TB) vs. OAK

7) Drew Brees (NO) vs. SEA – Brees at home is usually the only QB who can sniff Brady’s dead sexy jock strap, and I’m damn jealous of him. Against Seattle, however, Brees has to be treated with some caution.

Tier 3- Remaining QB1s

8) Russell Wilson (SEA) @ NO – Wilson should be in the above tier in such a juicy matchup. Really, this game will either be his coming out party or Panic Button Level “get the pitchforks out and riot in the town.”

9) Derek Carr (OAK) @ TB

10) Carson Palmer (ARI) @ CAR – Feeling a vintage 300 yard, 2-3 TD Palmer day.

11) Matthew Stafford (DET) @ HOU

12) Marcus Mariota (TEN) vs. JAC

13) Andy Dalton (CIN) vs. WAS

Tier 4 – Startable QB2s

14) Kirk Cousins (WAS) @ CIN

15) Ryan Fitzpatrick (NYJ) @ CLE

16) Dak Prescott (DAL) vs. PHI

17) Alex Smith (KC) @ IND

18) Tyrod Taylor (BUF) vs. NE

19) Carson Wentz (PHI) @ DAL

20) Philip Rivers (SD)

Tier 5 -Cut my life into pieces, this is my last resort

21) Blake Bortles (JAC) @ TEN

22) Kevin Hogan (CLE) vs. NYJ – The Jets are that bad, and Hogan showed the ability to pick up points with his legs.

23) Trevor Siemian (DEN) vs. SD

24) Sam Bradford (MIN) @ CHI

25) Brock Osweiler (HOU) vs. DET – Doesn’t look like he belongs on an NFL field, but  Detroit surrenders the most FPs to quarterbacks, so maybe he does something?

26) Jay Cutler (CHI) vs. MIN – Lolz
