2013 Fantasy Football QB Rankings Tier One This year tier one houses fantasy football’s two safest QB’s in the reliable Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers. Now while both of their teams have committed to running the ball more this season, these two signal callers are still the elite options they have been in previous years. A more balanced offense will help the play action game which will potentially add a couple more big passing plays to help make up the yards lost to the run game. Tier Two Tier two includes the electric and dynamic Cam Newton and Robert Griffin III both of whom represent the new prototype for NFL quarterbacks. These two can easily post high end QB2 numbers with RB3 numbers sprinkled in, making them both elite options and bonafide threats to finish as the top fantasy QB. Tier two also includes two of the greatest quarterbacks of a generation in future first ballot Hall of Famer’s Peyton Manning and Tom Brady, both of whom remain among the games elite. Tier Three Tier three is huge and holds the final eight QB1’s. Tier eight boasts Matt Ryan, Matthew Stafford, Colin Kaepernick, Russell Wilson, Tony Romo, Michael Vick, Andrew Luck and Eli Manning. The unprecedented depth at the position means the wait for a QB strategy is alive and well in single QB formats where you can get a QB1 between rounds 5-10. Tier Four Tier four consists of high upside QB2’s who will push to be a QB1 this season. In other years most of these names would be considered QB1’s but the depth at the position has relegated these signal callers to QB2 status. Tier four includes Andy Dalton, EJ Manuel, Jay Cutler, Ben Roethlisberger, Carson Palmer and Josh Freeman. Tier Five Tier five also has some potentially solid QB2’s who have a much lower floor than those in tier four. Tier five has solid QB’s such as Sam Bradford, Philip Rivers, Matt Schaub and Joe Flacco. Flacco finds himself in tier five due to losing Boldin to free agency and Pitta to injury while Philip Rivers finds himself in a less aggressive offense with a questionable receiver corps outside of rookie Keenan Allen and veterans Antonio Gates and Danny Woodhead.
