    Who Are the Best Quarterbacks To Draft In Fantasy?

    Josh Allen

    Normally, Josh Allen wouldn’t even be worth a discussion.

    Obviously, he’s the best quarterback in fantasy. He’s been the best fantasy QB for the past four years.

    But this year is a little different. Allen is entering the season with the weakest group of pass catchers of his career.

    Stefon Diggs is gone. Gabe Davis is gone. Replacing them are veteran Curtis Samuel and rookie Keon Coleman. The team will also look for more out of third-year WR Khalil Shakir and sophomore TE Dalton Kincaid.

    The Bills’ WR situation may cause some trepidation among fantasy managers regarding keeping Allen at the top spot. Disavow yourself of those notions.

    We already saw what Allen looks like without a clear WR1. He spent the entire second half of the 2024 season without one and was still the clear QB1.

    Allen is the type of QB that can succeed with any supporting cast. He also gains a large portion of his fantasy value from his rushing, which is not going anywhere.

    Don’t overthink it. If you decide to be the first team in your draft to take a QB, make it Allen.

    Kyler Murray

    It’s great to draft an elite QB. Not having to worry about the position provides a sense of calm for fantasy managers.

    But the elite QBs are not cheap. There is a significant opportunity cost associated with drafting one.

    As fun as it is to roster Allen, your primary target at quarterback this year should be Kyler Murray.

    In his career, Murray has never averaged fewer than 18.2 fantasy points per game. Over his first four seasons, he finished as the QB11, QB3, QB4, and QB7, respectively.

    Last year, Murray averaged 18.9 fantasy points per game after returning from his torn ACL.

    Now, another year removed from the injury, Murray is healthier and more confident in his knee. This could lead to increased rushing, and his passing numbers should improve with the addition of rookie first-round receiver Marvin Harrison Jr.

    There aren’t many QBs outside of the top guys that have overall QB1 upside. Murray does, and he’s far less expensive.
