Quarterback rankings for Week 2 fantasy football

We take you through some of the best quarterbacks going in Week 2 for fantasy football.

Will Kyler and the Cards have another monster week against Minnesota?

Saturday Evening Update

The Chargers/Cowboys game has me moving Justin Herbert and Dak Prescott up in my rankings. The absence of Demarcus Lawrence has me even more on the side of this game being a shootout.

The Top 10 quarterbacks are all very good starts and it makes for a tough group to rank. The Vikings should be better this week, but Kyler Murray’s rushing ability coupled with a host of good receivers has me on board with him as the top guy. I think this game could have a lot of points scored and Kirk Cousins makes for a good start even though I don’t have him in the Top 10.

Week 1 is over and we’ve learned a lot and also probably learned some things that won’t be as true as we think. Will Aaron Rodgers bounce back at home against the Lions after an awful game against the Saints? Can Ryan Tannehill and the Titans get back on track in Seattle? Does Jameis Winston keep his extreme efficiency going? Will Justin Fields or Trey Lance start to see more work? So many questions. So many storylines to follow in Week 2.

We’ll sort through the noise below and give our best attempts at ranking the signal callers for Week 2 of the fantasy football season.


Ryan Fitzpatrick, Washington Football Team

Fitzmagic is out for six to eight weeks with a hip subluxation. He’s been put on I.R. and Taylor Heinicke will take over, while Kyle Allen will back him up. Heinicke could be an upgrade on Fitzpatrick, but he’s likely a lateral move, which means we shouldn’t be overly enthusiastic about starting him in fantasy, but there is a chance he outplays our expectations.
