Fantasy Football Week 1 Quarterback Rankings

Fantasy Football Week 1 quarterback rankings

The 2021-22 NFL season is about to begin which means that fantasy football is back! Usually in the first week of the season fantasy football players tend to play the players they originally drafted to be their starters. However, since every week is important it would be irresponsible to start a player with a rough matchup over a player with a more favorable one because he was drafted to be a starter. Here are fantasy football week 1 quarterback rankings.

*Ratings are subject to change due to injury reports or possible move to reserve/COVID-19 list*

(Check out the section below for details on players already rumored to possibly miss this week and how their replacement options rank for the week)

Key:
Must Start- a player who should definitely be in your lineup that week because of the combination of matchup and talent. They will likely finish near the top of the league in points that week and could repeat the production most weeks.
Starter- a player who makes fantasy owners comfortable starting week after week. Regardless of the matchup, this player has a high floor.
Low-End Starter- a player who should be started in most lineups but can possibly bottom out and finish below average on a given week. A high ceiling play in two-quarterback or superflex leagues.
Streamer- a player who could be a perfect replacement for a starter for a week or two. Starting this player may not win you your lineup but they will make sure that your production out of that position will not lose you your matchup either. Also a viable option in two-quarterback or superflex leagues.
Deep League Streamer- a player who could fill a void at a position in a deeper league. Their ceiling may be close to average point production at the position but their floor is enough to get through the week. A reasonable player to have in your lineup in two-quarterback or superflex leagues.
Leave on the Bench- a player who should be avoided in all lineups that week. Many times this player could even be left on waivers.

Things to keep an eye on

QB18 Carson Wentz, Indianapolis Colts

In early August, Carson Wentz suffered a foot injury that was supposed to sideline him anywhere between five and twelve weeks. About a month later Wentz is ready to play Week One against the Seattle Seahawks according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. If any setback were to occur it would have a major impact on not only Wentz, but all of the Colts’ skill position players. If anything major happens that would leave in out of Week One, Jacob Eason would jump to QB31 between Zach Wilson and Jared Goff.
