2021 Non-PPR Fantasy Football Rankings: Quarterbacks

Fantasy football draft season is right around the corner, as many fantasy players will be looking to bounce back from a poor season, or continue a dominant reign over their league. Regardless of whichever you are, you won't be the only one looking for rankings, top rookies for fantasy football this year, and potential sleeper picks. Thus said, lets get into my 2021 non-PPR Quarterback rankings for the 2021 season.


1. Patrick Mahomes II (KC, 12)

2. Josh Allen (BUF, 7)

3. Kyler Murray (ARI, 12)

4. Lamar Jackson (BAL, 8)

5. Dak Prescott (DAL, 7)*

Dak Prescott was off to a blazing start in 2020 before he went down with a gruesome ankle injury, as he averaged over twenty-five points per game. The bright side for Prescott heading into the 2021 campaign is that the Cowboys have a plethora of weapons that could lead to similar numbers from Prescott’s short 2020 season. The only potential downside for Prescott this season could be his rushing numbers. Nonetheless, Prescott is poised to finish as a top-five QB this season if he stays healthy.

6. Russell Wilson (SEA, 9)

7. Aaron Rodgers (GB, 13)*

The drama surrounding Rpdgers’ future in Green Bay seems to be settling down finally, but it still should worry fantasy players. However, no matter where Rodgers plays, he’ll be effective. Rodgers doesn’t provide much when it comes to his running ability, but he still is undoubtedly one of the best QB’s in the game, and in fantasy football, he showed that with his career-high forty-eight passing touchdowns in 2020. Coming off of potentially the best season of his career and an MVP-winning campaign, Rodgers could easily finish in the top three at his position once again.

8. Justin Herbert (LAC, 7)

9. Tom Brady (TB, 9)

10. Ryan Tannehill (TEN, 13)

Tannehill has been shooting up draft boards at a rapid pace since the Titans traded for All-Pro Julio Jones, and rightfully so. Although the Titans lost many weapons in Jonnu Smith, Corey Davis, and Adam Humphries; they won the offseason by acquiring Julio Jones. Tannehill was able to tally thirty-three passing touchdowns and nearly four-thousand yards in a run-heavy offense. The only factor that could hinder Tannehill from a top ten finish at his position, is a lack of volume in his passing attempts due to Tennessee’s offensive scheme. However, I’m very high on Tannehill this season because he’ll have A.J. Brown and Julio Jones at his dispense.

11. Matthew Stafford (LAR, 11)

After spending the entirety of his career in Detroit, Stafford will be playing in a new uniform and city this season. Expectations for Stafford are now much higher, but the talent surrounding him is also much greater. Not only the talent off the field but the talent of the coaching staff for the Rams, in particular, Head Coach Sean McVay. Stafford has never had an offensive mind at the helm like McVay, which is why there’s potential for Stafford to have a career year in Los Angeles.

12. Jalen Hurts (PHI, 14)

Hurts was able to win over the Eagles locker room and front office last year in the four games he started in, as the Eagles appear to be all in on Hurts for now. Luckily for Hurts, the Eagles addressed the Wide Receiver position this offseason and brought in some new weapons for the second-year QB, including Heisman winner DeVonta Smith. Hopefully, for Hurts and the Eagles, the receivers and the offensive line can stay healthy; something that hasn’t happened for Philadelphia in quite some time.

13. Joe Burrow (CIN, 10)

14. Matt Ryan (ATL, 6)

15. Kirk Cousins (MIN, 7)

16. Trevor Lawrence (JAX, 7)

17. Baker Mayfield (CLE, 13)

18. Ryan Fitzpatrick (WAS, 9)

19. Daniel Jones (NYG, 10)

20. Ben Roethlisberger (PIT, 7)

21. Carson Wentz (IND, 14)

The last few seasons have been a rollercoaster for Wentz, as he went from an MVP candidate to a backup QB to a rookie, to now being on a completely new team. There’s tons of potential this year for Wentz as he reunites with Frank Reich, who was Wentz’s Offensive Coordinator in Philadelphia for their Super Bowl run. This could be a make-or-break season for Wentz as an NFL Quarterback, as many have already written him off after last season’s struggles.

22. Tua Tagovailoa (MIA, 14)

23. Justin Fields (CHI, 10)

24. Sam Darnold (CAR, 13)

25. Deshaun Watson (HOU, 10)

The off-season has been filled with drama as usual, but nothing has come close to the ongoing saga of Deshaun Watson’s future. I’m very scared to draft Watson this season unless he slides even farther down draft boards than most expect. With Watson’s ongoing legal battles and his conflict with the Texans organization, nobody knows if Watson will be playing in 2021, and if he does end up playing, the next question is where will it be. Watson is easily a top ten fantasy QB when there isn’t consistent drama around him, but until that’s the case, I would be wary of using an early or mid-round pick on the Texans QB.
