1 Cam Newton CAR 7 423 3980 31 15 580 7 4560 38
Newton was well represented in 2015 fantasy playoffs thanks to decreased expectations when he lost Kelvin Benjamin who accounted for nine of Newton's 18 passing TDs in 2014. But that was very wrong. Despite having no apparent elite receivers, Newton threw for 3837 yards and 35 TDs plus ran for 636 yards and ten more scores. It was a magic year that ended in the Superbowl. Benjamin returns so that will make the offense better. There are two natural concerns though after such a dramatic upswing. First, will the Panthers have a let down after nearly turning in an undefeated season? And secondly, what is the effect from facing the easiest passing schedule in the NFL for 2015 (faced NFC East, AFC South) and now having a far worse passing schedule for 2016, facing the AFC West and NFC West? Throw in Newton not looking sharp in the offseason and this season looks ripe for "a correction".
2 Aaron Rodgers GBP 4 408 4450 38 8 270 1 4720 39
Rodgers comes off his worst full season for total yardage when he only threw for 3821 yards but still scored 31 times. His rushing yardage was up slightly as well with 344 yards. But Rodgers was a disappointment and more so in the second half of the season when owners needed him most and he turned in four games with just a single TD and failed to break 300 yards over his final nine games. The good news is that the team is healthy again - including favorite receiver Jordy Nelson. And the schedule while average is still noticeably better than 2015.
3 Andrew Luck IND 10 402 4500 35 16 250 2 4750 37
Luck missed much of last year with a shoulder and kidney injury but he's healthy again and just signed the biggest contract in the history of the NFL - six years, $140 million. For a player who paced the entire league in 2014 with 4761 yards and 40 passing TDs, what time he had on the field in 2015 was a little disappointing with only two 300 yard games in his seven starts. What is equally concerning is that Luck played against one of the weakest schedules in 2014 but for this year he faces an even tougher schedule. Luck will bounce back from a disastrous 2015 season but he's been directed to run less and take fewer hits. That means fewer yards and scores as a runner.
4 Russell Wilson SEA 5 396 4220 32 9 450 2 4670 34
Who knew? After four seasons, Russell Wilson turned into a passing machine after both Jimmy Graham and Marshawn Lynch were injured. Through the first nine weeks of 2015, Wilson only passed for ten TDs. Over the final seven games of the season, Wilson notched 24 TDs. He still tacked on 553 rushing yards though he ran less later in the year. The schedule is roughly the same in difficulty and HC Pete Carroll already confirmed that the productive passing that ended last year will again be relied on. That is great news for Wilson's fantasy fortunes since he'll still run the ball but add on many more passing yards and scores than normal. All the same skill players return other than Marshawn Lynch. Jimmy Graham may be healthy though he wasn't there when all the passing happened anyway. The addition of C.J. Prosise offers a new outlet as well.
5 Carson Palmer ARI 9 395 4860 36 12 20 1 4880 37
Palmer may be one of the oldest QBs in the game at 37, but he comes off a career best season with 4671 yards and 35 touchdowns. He starts his fourth season in HC Bruce Arian's offense and every skill position player returns including David Johnson who ended 2015 as an equally valuable receiver as he was a runner. Larry Fitzgerald may be in his final season but he too had a career year with 109 catches. The schedule is still more of a friend than a foe though a bit tougher than last year.
6 Eli Manning NYG 8 381 4600 37 17 30 0 4630 37
While HC Tom Coughlin is gone, OC Ben McAdoo was promoted up so there is no change to the offense. That is a good thing since Manning passed for over 4400 yards these last two seasons and even had a career best 35 TDs last year. The schedule is very good - about the same as last year. And the Giants swapped out Rueben Randle for the rookie Sterling Shepard which looks like an immediate upgrade so far. The G- men also failed to really address their mediocre rushing game so Manning should see yet another productive year as a passer.
7 Blake Bortles JAC 5 381 4700 34 14 100 0 4800 34
Bortles had a breakout year in 2015 when he turned in 4428 passing yards and 37 total TDs. More encouraging was that it happened in OC Greg Olson's first season and the entire offense returns from last year with the addition of Chris Ivory. The schedule is slightly tougher thanks to facing the defenses of the AFC West but Bortles is only entering his third season and gets his first time already knowing the offense going into training camp. Bortles passed for two or more TDs in 12 games and that should increase with all receivers returning. Three of his final four games of the fantasy season will be at home.
8 Drew Brees NOS 5 370 4800 32 15 20 0 4820 32
Brees has thrown for at or near 5000 yards in each of the last five seasons though his 32 scores last year was his lowest since 2007 and he's been on a scoring decline since 2011. Still, nothing wrong with 4870 yards and 32 TDs. This offense has been under OC Pete Carmichael for the last seven years and this is a stable team. But Brees is already 37 years old and slowly declining. What is concerning this year is that his schedule is worse than last year. The Saints face the AFC West (DEN and KC defenses) and the NFC West (SEA, LA, ARI and SF). That should see his gentle decline continue.
9 Derek Carr OAK 10 367 4250 34 15 120 1 4370 35
Carr's second season showed nice progression ending with almost 4000 passing yards and 32 TDs. The addition of Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree made a tremendous difference and Carr was able to spread the ball around well with eight different receivers topping 200 yards. The offense with OC Bill Musgrave remains mostly vertical and using the two starting WR for a combined 276 targets - about half of all passes. That's great for their fantasy fortunes and for his third season, Carr gets the same coaches and scheme along with a better schedule than 2015.
10 Philip RiversUpside LAC 11 366 4800 31 14 20 0 4820 31
Rivers is one of the elder QBs at 35 years of age but still has plenty left in the tank with no signs of slowing. He comes off a career best 4792 passing yards and more importantly he reunites with Ken Whisenhunt who was the SD 2013 OC before taking the job in TEN for two seasons. In that year, Rivers threw for 4478 yards and 32 TDs for one of his best seasons. And he did so relying mostly on the then-rookie Keenan Allen. He also gave Danny Whitehead his career best 76-605-6 as a receiver that year. The schedule is roughly the same strength as 2015, much the same receivers are there from 2013 in Whisenhunt's scheme and Travis Benjamin is added to the mix after posting 68-966-5 with CLE last year. Rivers ended around the 12th best QB last year and he'll flirt with that level or better this year. He's a very attractive back- up fantasy QB but may end up a weekly starter.
11 Ben Roethlisberger PIT 8 365 4800 30 15 50 0 4850 30
Big Ben lost 15 pounds in the offseason in an attempt to remain healthier. He's lasted for all 16 games just three times over his 12 seasons and typically plays hurt in many games as well. Still he is a lock for 4000+ yards when healthy and had a career high 4952 yards and 32 scores in 2014 in his last 16 game season. The same coaching staff and receivers all return save for Martavis Bryant who is suspended for the year. Antonio Brown remains the premier WR in the league but now Sammie Coates needs to step up along with newly acquired TE Ladarius Green. This is a mature, high-powered offense and Roethlisberger has been cranking out the 300 yard games in recent years - including when Bryant was out of the lineup. His absence won't help, but this is a chance for Big Ben to further prove he can move the team without Bryant - as long as Brown is still there.
12 Kirk CousinsUpside WAS 9 365 4500 31 12 40 2 4540 33
Cousins finally took the full-time reins last year after spending three seasons watching from the sidelines. His stats were encouraging - 4166 yards and 29 TDs along with another five scores as a rusher. Better yet he was more productive as the season progressed and threw for 11 TDs over the final three games along with six 300 yard games over the final nine weeks. Cousins gets the same receivers back and adds Josh Doctson who was the third overall WR taken in the draft. The schedule is slightly better than last year and Cousins has a full year under his belt and should do no worse than 2015. Plus he runs in scores. He led the team with five rushing TDs while the RBs combined for just four all year.
13 Matthew StaffordUpside DET 10 363 4500 32 14 40 1 4540 33
Stafford is in the third year of HC Jim Caldwell's offense and OC Jim Bob Cooter has a year under his belt as well. What Stafford does not have is Calvin Johnson for the first time since the QB was drafted in 2009. Stafford has been above 4200 passing yards for the last five seasons though barely so in the last two years. As even Stafford has noted, defenses no longer have anyone to key on with Megatron gone though Golden Tate may disagree. The good news is that the schedule that was only average last year is now much better for both the rushing and passing game. And forcing Stafford to use all receivers more with about 150 targets to redistribute could be a positive for this offense.
14 Ryan TannehillUpside MIA 8 359 4500 27 12 200 1 4700 28
Have to like Ryan Tannehill's situation this season - if he can take advantage. A change in coaches rarely means immediate help but in this case HC Adam Gase comes off helping Jay Cutler and worked with Peyton Manning before that. New OC Clyde Christensen was the QB coach for Andrew Luck for the last three seasons. Gase has spent time working with Tannehill in the offseason to home his skills. And Tannehill has improved in each of his four seasons ending with 4208 yards and 25 TDs last year. The schedule is roughly the same strength but DeVante Parker and Jay Ajayi now have a year under their belt. Tannehill should improve if only incrementally for his fifth straight season. One concern is that the season starts out with games @SEA and @NE and then ends the fantasy season with @BAL, ARI, @NYJ and @BUF. Not exactly a soft way to end the season.
15 Tom Brady NEP 9 357 4400 30 12 50 2 4450 32
Brady finally accepts the four game suspension which means missing @ARI, but also the homegames of MIA, HOU and BUF. . Brady is the oldest QB at the age of 39 and yet he comes off his best season in the last three years. He passed for 4770 and 36 TDs and ran in three more scores. The personnel around him remains mostly unchanged other than TE Martellus Bennett and depth WRs Chris Hogan and Nate Washington.The only concern with Brady - aside from missing the first month and three home games - is that the schedule is is worse than last year. Brady usually has a bad passing schedule but this year is extra tough facing the NFC West and the final three games of the fantasy season being @DEN, NYJ and @MIA. Brady is a safe bet for at least Top 10 play when he is on the field. He can be had cheaper with the suspension but his schedule gets toughest right when you need him most.
16 Jameis Winston TBB 6 352 4300 25 11 250 2 4550 27
The first season for Winston was a big success - passing for 4042 and 22 TDs with only 12 interceptions. He even added six rushing scores. The success that OC Dirk Koetter had directing the offense last season ended up with his promotion to HC but he'll remain the play caller and the scheme will remain the same though with even more twists as Winston takes the next step in realizing his NFL potential. All the same offensive players return so there is great continuity. The schedule is a bit tougher but Winston should be in for an increase in production. His schedule improves after the Week 6 bye.
17 Tyrod Taylor BUF 10 342 3400 22 7 600 4 4000 26
Taylor's first season in BUF turned into a starting gig after four years on the BAL bench. He passed for 3035 yards and 20 TDs while rushing for 568 yards and four more scores. He still has yet to throw a 300 yard game and in the second year of HC Rex Ryan/OC Greg Roman there isn't a lot of room for improvement in this run-first scheme. Having a defense to keep the score low furthers the lack of urgency to throw. His rushing stats make a difference in fantasy but not enough to make him anything more than a middle tier back-up at best. Oddly the QB schedule strength is just average like it was last year but both the RB and WR have improved schedules.
18 Matt Ryan ATL 11 334 4460 24 12 90 1 4550 25
Ryan's first year with HC Dan Quinn/OC Kyle Shanahan was one of his best for passing yardage (4591) and yet his worst for TDs (21) since his second year (2009). Ryan remained in the Top 10 for passes and yardage though, down only slightly from 2014. But the Falcons had a soft schedule in 2015 and they'll face just an average one this year - but noticeably tougher than the previous. The personnel remain largely the same save for the addition of Mohammed Sanu. Ryan has almost no rushing yardage and hasn't run in a score since 2012. His decline in TDs is keeping him from being a difference maker. He ranked just 18th overall in fantasy scoring last year and while the system has a year under its belt, the schedule is not quite as kind.
19 Marcus Mariota TEN 13 333 3800 20 12 450 3 4250 23
Mariota's rookie season didn't break any records but he still looks like a good draft pick for the always-floundering Titans. He passed for just 2818 yards and 19 TDs but added 252 rush yards and two more scores as a runner. 87 yards came on one jaunt in Week 13 against the Jaguars and otherwise he was almost always held to 30 or fewer rush yards. New HC Mike Mularkey was the interim HC last year and says he intends to use Mariota more as a runner considering the success he had in college. What will impact Mariota's stats this year is the addition of both DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry. That will allow a formidable tandem for a team that only managed 1170 rushing yards from their RBs last year. They also upgraded the WR with Rishard Matthews but it all adds up to a mostly mediocre set of WRs who ranked dead last in the NFL for 2015 with just 130 combined catches. Mariota is a fantasy backup and not even a good one yet.
20 Andy Dalton CIN 9 329 3700 28 15 140 3 3840 31
Ken Zampese is the new offensive coordinator but he's been with the Bengals for 13 years as the QB coach so he is pretty familiar with Dalton. This offense is not going to change much if at all. Dalton should see an uptick this year with a QB coach running the offense and a better schedule than last year. Dalton was as good as 4296 yards and 33 TDs in 2013. He won't shoot back up there but he will see an increase from the less productive last two seasons. One thing working against him - both Marvin Jones (65-816-4) and Mohamed Sanu (33-394) are gone from last year. The WR depth chart is open below A.J. Green.
21 Joe Flacco BAL 8 327 4200 27 14 30 1 4230 28
Flacco tore his ACL and MCL in Week 11 last year but is on track for training camp and the start of the season. The Ravens gave him a three-year extension but that was to bring down the costs of the next couple of years from his previous contract. The first season with OC Marc Trestman was going well with five games over 300 yards but that has to pick again this year. The Ravens went from 16th in passes thrown (555) in 2014 to #1 in 2015 (675). The Ravens brought in Mike Wallace and Benjamin Watson and Steve Smith is going to give it one more year. Breshad Perriman may (or may not) be ready to play at some point this season. The schedule is very favorable and much better than last year. Flacco isn't likely to break into the Top 10 anytime soon, but his numbers will rise and he should make a more adequate fantasy back-up in an offense that likes to throw.
22 Ryan Fitzpatrick TBB 6 321 3900 29 16 100 0 4000 29
The Jets scored their second highest points of the last 17 years with Ryan Fitzpatrick at the helm. It was a career high for him as well with 3905 yards and 31 TDs. Fitzpatrick signed a one-year, $12 million contract at the end of July and he'll cash in next year if he can repeat 2015.
23 Jay Cutler FA x 321 4000 25 12 150 1 4150 26
Cutler has a change in offensive coordinator for the sixth time in 11 years but it was the promotion of QB coach Dowell Loggains and there should be no real changes in scheme. Loggains was used to maintain continuity, especially after he helped Cutler drop from 18 interceptions to a career low 11. But he also dropped to only 21 scores and posted just 3659 yards. In fairness, Alshon Jeffery was often injured and Kevin White never played. But Matt Forte and Martellus Bennett are gone and with them almost 100 catches from last year. The addition of White should make a difference as well as a healthy Jeffery and the schedule is much better than 2015 which really helps. Cutler has not played all 16 games in six years but he usually only misses one or two. He won't challenge for a Top 10 spot but should yet again make for an average fantasy back-up.
24 Brock Osweiler CLE 13 298 3900 25 16 30 0 3930 25
Osweiler jumped ship to the Texans instead of remaining to be the heir to Peyton Manning's throne. After three seasons of mostly watching, Osweiler was called on to play in eight games last year and threw for 1967 yards and ten scores. But five of those scores came versus the PIT and CHI secondaries and the rest were really only average at best. But - the Texans came calling and now Osweiler heads up a largely new offense in terms of personnel. Under the same coaches, The Texans were ranked 10th in the NFL in passes thrown though both yardage (4058) and TDs (28) only ranked 20th. This is a run-first team that led the NFL in rushing attempts the last two years. But Osweiler gets DeAndre Hopkins and the rookie WR Will Fuller brings in promise as well. That still won't make Osweiler a fantasy starter for now, but he starts to be in the running for a fantasy back-up with roughly an average passing schedule.
25 Blaine GabbertRisk ARI 9 295 3700 21 15 200 1 3900 22
The first round bust from the Jaguars stepped up in SF last year when Colin Kaepernick was injured in Week 9. Gabbert did throw a score in every start but managed two only twice and his performance looked good only in comparison to Kaepernick. But Gabbert is expected to be the starter when training camp opens and he'll battle to be the #1 QB in a Chip Kelly offense. But the receivers here are below average and there is much risk in expecting Gabbert to take the start all year and to produce fantasy relevant stats.
26 Alex Smith KCC 5 293 3500 20 8 320 1 3820 21
The Chiefs passed better last year - they went from zero TDs for WR to 12 but overall not that much change. Smith passed for 3486 yards and 20 scores for a career high but that still lags most of the NFL. Smith added 84 runs for 498 yards and two more scores for another career mark. He'll never be more than a marginal fantasy back-up.
27 Sam Bradford MIN 6 281 3700 23 15 40 0 3740 23
This is all new. Bradford was just traded to the Vikings in exchange for a 2017 1st and a 2018 4th pick to help them recover from the loss of Teddy Bridgewater. That immediately makes Bradford a season-long fantasy option though the Vikes are still a run-first team.
28 Robert Griffin III FA x 264 3600 17 15 100 1 3700 18
RG3 gets a chance for a do-over on his career though it has to be in CLE. Despite saying that RG3 has to win the job and nothing will be given to him, the reality is that he will be given every chance to start and should be there in Week 1. Josh McCown started seven games last year and is on the roster but he's a journeyman QB on his seventh NFL team. The Browns drafted Cody Kessler in the third round but he's not going to matter this year if ever. HC Hue Jackson comes over from CIN and will also call the plays. It is a new start for RG3 with a clean slate. The Browns spent their first round pick on Corey Coleman who already ranks as their best WR. This team will need to throw and their schedule is about average though better than 2105. There is some upside here but just as much risk. But Hue Jackson intends on making this a run-first offense as he had in CIN where the passing numbers declined when he was the OC.
29 Dak Prescott DAL 7 234 2800 17 12 140 2 2940 19
08-27-16 Update:
Romo's fracture in his back has him out for 6-10 weeks and that means all the good press that Prescott has generated suddenly no longer is followed with "in theory anyway". Prescott takes the reins for at least the next six weeks or longer.

Prescott was the 4.37 pick of the Cowboys after they missed out on Paxton Lynch. Prescott could be the heir apparent to Tony Romo who is 36 and may not actually make it four more years as Jerry Jones said. Romo hasn't played all 16 games in three years. But Prescott is more of a project since he was a run-first QB at Mississippi State where he threw for up to 3793 yards in a season but also rushed for as many as 986 yards as well including a career total of 41 rushing TDs. Prescott should see the field at least in a cameo or two this year but potentially more given Romo's collar bones made of saltine crackers.
30 Jared Goff LAR 8 221 3000 17 14 30 0 3030 17
Goff was the first player taken in the 2016 NFL draft and he heads to a team that has ranked poorly with the pass every year that HC Jeff Fisher has been there. This includes last year when they were the worst in passing yards (2911) and scores (11). Goff was a three year starter at Cal and spent last year passing for 4719 yards and 43 TDs so taking over the Rams is a step down. Todd Gurley ensures this team remains a run-first offense and the receivers are spotty at best. Goff may not start the year but he's expected to take the reins quickly. But his fantasy value is minimal this year and limited in the near future too because of the offense and receivers.
31 Carson WentzUpside PHI 4 160 2000 14 15 40 0 2040 14
Wentz was taken with the 1.02 pick last April and he was #1 on many draft boards. The 6-5, 237 lb. Wentz played all four years at North Dakota State and threw for 4719 yards and 43 TDs as a senior. The plan is to allow him to "season" on the bench for his first year but all reports are glowing about how quickly he picks up the offense and whenever he does play, Wentz also can tack on rushing stats since he had as many as 642 rush yards in a season in college. His 2016 outlook will at least include some cameo work at the end of the season but could involve becoming the starter this season instead of next. That all throws a ton of risk on expecting him to produce solid weekly numbers at some point this year but for a dynasty pick, he'll have better receivers than any other rookie QB other than Paxton Lynch in Denver.
32 Trevor Siemian DEN 11 158 2000 14 8 20 0 2020 14
Siemian appears to have outplayed Mark Sanchez to become the Week 1 starter who all too quickly will give way to Paxton Lynch.
33 Paxton LynchUpside DEN 11 125 1600 10 14 50 0 1650 10
Paxton Lynch was the 1.26 pick of the Broncos who moved up to grab the Memphis QB after losing both Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler in the offseason. Lynch is still viewed as a project and will either sit out the first season or end up playing soon depending on who is asked. But he will have a learning curve to get through and he plays for a team with a great defense so less reason to throw when he plays. But Lynch has two of the best WR in the game with Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas. He's a solid dynasty pick hoping on good things in a year or two but he's unlikely to post fantasy relevant stats whenever he does finally play this year.
34 Tony RomoRisk FA x 89 1200 7 4 10 0 1210 7
08-27-16 Update:
Romo has a fracture to a vertabrae and will miss 6 to 10 weeks. That means no reason to draft.

Romo's infamous shoulder/collar bone has healed (again) and he is on track to start Week 1 even if he's never seen in the preseason. The addition of Ezekiel Elliot should provide Romo with a more DeMarco-esque backfield and help prevent the need to throw as much. At 36, Romo is already one of the elder QBs in the league and the fact he has not lasted all 16 games since 2012 makes him an injury risk for the rest of his playing days. Romo averaged 31 passing TDs over 2011 to 2014 and this schedule is a bit better than last year. But he has not broken 4000 yards in three seasons and the specter of a rushing offense should keep that streak intact.
35 Jimmy Garoppolo NEP 9 68 850 6 3 10 0 860 6
Garappolo looks to start the first four games pending a final-final-final decision about Tom Brady.There is still nothing more to go on. Despite this potential, he completed exactly one pass all last year. The schedule is nice for the first four weeks with three home games but that could be handled by more rushing. Garappolo only makes sense in a best ball league where you also own Tom Brady.
36 Josh McCown NYJ 11 17 150 2 2 10 0 160 2
McCown is on his seventh NFL team and he started seven games last year but he's not expected to start this year. CLE acquired Robert Griffin III and drafted Cody Kessler in the third round. No reason to consider this summer. He's 37 and on his final legs.
37 Cardale Jones BUF 10 9 60 0 1 60 0 120 0
E.J. Manuel is the #2 QB for the Bills so all Cardale Jones can possibly hope for this year is a cameo. But the 6-5/253 lb. Ohio State product could show up in future seasons. He's only played in 23 games in college and was only starting when injuries gave him the call. Worth a very deep stash in a very deep dynasty league. He's very raw.
38 Colin KaepernickRisk FA* 7 100 0 0 20 0 120 0
Kaepernick flirted with fantasy relevancy in the past but mostly from rushing yards and scores. He's never thrown for more than 3369 passing yards in a season. The wheels came off last year with a litany of injuries (shoulder, knee, thumb). He missed seven games and possibly the starting job to Blaine Gabbert. Kaep was also reportedly shopped around in the offseason but remains with SF if only because of his higher salary. But he'll need to win the job back from Gabbert in training camp. Bottom line - this is an offense that has been one of the worst passing units for many years and only managed 16 scores via the pass in 2015. Chip Kelly imports his offense to SF but easily has the worst set of receivers he's ever had. Until a clear winner for the starting job happens, there's no reason to consider a SF QB even as a fantasy backup.
39 Connor Cook OAK 10 6 100 0 1 10 0 110 0
Cook was knocked for character issues in the draft but he was the all-time leading passer at Michigan State. The Raiders traded up to take him with the 4.02 pick they acquired from Oakland. It was a curious move given that the Raiders had already signed Matt McGloin to a one-year, $2.35M contract. Cook will compete for the #2 spot but this is David Carr's team and Cook will not hold any fantasy appeal unless Carr is injured.
40 Christian Hackenberg NYJ 11 5 80 0 0 10 0 90 0
The Jets spent their 2.20 pick to acquire the 6-4 Hackenberg from Penn State and he's the future QB for the Jets. He was not that impressive in OTA's though OC Chan Gailey liked his decision making skills. Hackenberg holds dynasty value and could start as early as 2017 but there's no inclination to use him this year unless the Jets run out of options. Hackenberg is a project at this point.
41 Cody Kessler CLE 13 4 50 0 0 10 0 60 0
The four-year player from USC started three seasons with solid results. The Browns grabbed him with their 3.31 pick and he could challenge in the future. But he was considered just adequate in size and arm strength and the Browns want to allow RG3 to take his turn this year at the least.
