PPR Fantasy Football:
Despite a disappointing end to his 2012 season, Aaron Rodgers still tops the 2013 Fantasy PPR QB Rankings.
Even though the Super Bowl literally ended just days ago, the National Football League is a year-round sport and so is fantasy football. Therefore, despite the fact that the 2013 season is still a good eight months away, it is never too early to take a stab at ranking the top 25 fantasy football quarterbacks for the 2013 season.
One thing I found interesting while putting together these rankings was the overwhelming presence of young quarterbacks in the rankings. Heck there are three second-year players in the top 12 as well as two third year players, meaning that five of the top 12 fantasy quarterbacks for next season have been in the league less than two years.
Yet, this should not be surprising, the NFL is a young man’s game and with the influx of the spread offense, which has become so rampant in the college game, young quarterbacks are able to assimilate into the league faster than ever before. Simply look at the quick success of RG3, Cam Newton and Colin Kaepernick.
Those three quarterbacks all came from spread offenses in college and are now enjoying tremendous success at the NFL level. Sure, there are concerns about the knee injury suffered by RG3 and honestly that is the only thing that kept him outside the top-five in these rankings, but truth be told, these quarterbacks, who are equally successful as runners and throwers are the new wave of fantasy quarterbacks.
Of course the top-five currently consists of many of the old guard, as you will find Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning all amongst the top-five as we look towards next season. Yet, their place on the pedestal may not last long as the young guns continue to get better and better.
Oh and by the way, you heard it here first, Kaepernick is going to be an elite fantasy quarterback in 2013, he is currently ranked sixth in the 2013 Fantasy PPR quarterback rankings and I fully expect him to explode onto the fantasy scene next season much the way Newton and RG3 did in 2011 and 2012, respectively.
So without further ado, here are the Fantasy PPR way too early fantasy football quarterback rankings for the 2013 NFL season:
