Fantasy Football 2014 rankings and stat projections: Quarterbacks

Tuesday August 5th, 2014

Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees are all at the helm of potent, pass-heavy offenses and all bring the consistency that fantasy owners so value. But if you miss them, there's also value to be had in the No. 9 to No. 13 range.

POSITION PRIMERS: QB | RB | WR | TE | K | DST

In short, a passing renaissance has increased the value on both ends of the starting class of quarterbacks, while putting the squeeze on the guys in between.

Find all our quarterback fantasy rankings -- as well as stat projections -- below. The rankings are based on standard-scoring leagues, awarding one point for 10 rushing and receiving yards, one point for 25 passing yards, six points for rushing and receiving touchdowns, and four points for passing touchdowns.
