  • Ranking the top 35 quarterbacks going into your 2019 fantasy football draft.
By Kevin Hanson

Welcome to my 2019 fantasy football positional rankings series. This post has been updated slightly as news has changed. You can also check out my RB, WR, TE and K/DST rankings.

Below you'll see my rankings for the top 35 fantasy quarterbacks. The basis for my rankings are my full-season statistical projections, but you should know that the gap in projected fantasy points from one quarterback to the next can be quite narrow. As an example, the projected difference between Baker Mayfield (QB8) and Jameis Winston (QB9) is a mere 0.02 fantasy points. And that's for the entire season—not per game.

Therefore, I've grouped players into tiers and added auction values based on 12-team, half-PPR scoring formats with $200 budgets. As you'll notice, both Mayfield and Winston fall into the same tier and have the same suggested auction value.

For blurbs on each player, and more information to defend my rankings, check out the full post here.
