QB RANKINGS & ANALYSIS\nMUNTRADAMUS BOOT CAMP\nMVP Nation.\n\nThis week we will be forming the strategy more and more, I will be doing TWITCH Streams almost nightly for MVPs as well coming very soon.\nEARLY STRATEGY\nBrady will be there Round 3, and it is worth it to grab him one more time as it is possibly his last season. His tremendous playoff run is just a reminder of how amazing he can be and he will always bring you the BEAST numbers year after year. No QB offers the consistency of Brady and no QB really has as easy of a schedule as Tom who tears everyone up. Brady and his ADP goes around #56 which is ridiculous for the 2017 MVP who just broke a Super Bowl Record for passing yards. When you get Brady, you must draft Big Ben when it is time usually pick #107, if you miss him Matt Ryan Pick #111 and if you miss those two guys Rivers at #114 and Carr at #131 (QB20) can still play as QB1\/QB2 quality. Jared Goff could have a big season but at pick #102 as a backup, you could grab him if you miss Big Ben or Matty Ice.\n\nBy the end of the week, we will have the perfect strategy.\n\n \nBEAST\nTOM BRADY - NE\nThe Patriots schedule is much easier than most of the star QBs. First thing to remember is no secondary can even stop Brady to begin with. Despite losing Brandin Cooks and Danny Amendola, the Patriots offense can be just as strong with the return of Malcolm Mitchell and Julian Edelman. Patriots also have Kenny Britt\/Chris Hogan and the thing to remember about Brady, he makes his WRs and TEs as good as they are. This could be the last chance to own Tom Brady the Hall of Fame GOAT, and if you end up with him, it is important to have a strong backup QB.\nAARON RODGERS - GB\nFirst thing is first, you cannot draft Rodgers this year if you want to win your league. Week 12 they play @ Minnesota, not a good matchup at all. All of December, Week 13- Week 17 the Packers are either at home or in really cold places like Chicago\/New York. Depending on weather to not be snowing is too much of a risk. The Packers are also a bit weaker at WR this year not really replacing Jordy Nelson. While Adams can definitely play like a #1, Cobb and Jimmy Graham do not expand the field like Jordy did. Rodgers will get his numbers, but the schedule is not great and he is not going to win you your league.\nRUSSELL WILSON - SEA\nThere is no doubt the Seahawks will throw more this year with Schotty as their OC. The Seahawks adding Brandon Marshall gives Wilson a big toy to work with, and he still has Doug Baldwin. What makes Wilson a BEAST QB is his ability to run. Remember 40 yards rushing = 100 yards passing in standard leagues. The amount of times Wilson drops back, he can easily get that every single game with upside. He is not afraid to run and he has a strong team behind him. Offensive line is still a problem for the Seahawks, but Wilson can run around and make things happen with his legs. Not the easiest schedule, but do not forget Russell is a star. When the Seahawks win games in 2018, it is because of Russell Wilson getting the job done.\nBEN ROETHLISBERGER - PIT\nBig Ben still has the most dynamic WR in the game in Antonio Brown, and he can definitely throw to Bell. There are times the Steelers go very run heavy with Bell, but there are also times Big Ben can make big things happen and have some really big games. There will be a good mix of QB2\/QB1 performances through the season, but his upside is legendary status in the right game. Big Ben is a great QB to own and should have a very strong season, two years left on his contract and he looks to be ready to sign a new one when the time comes. Amazing playoff schedule could lead him to be our QB.\nDESHAUN WATSON - HOU\nThere is no doubting that Watson has superstar potential. He was putting up historic numbers before going down with a knee injury. The fact that it is O'Brien's offense lets you know that he knows how to put up numbers for his entire team. The Texans schedule is not easy by any means, but Watson has shown he can perform against just about any team. There is a lot to like about Watson, but he also comes with risk because we only saw a small sample size of what he can do. He is also coming off of knee surgery, and you have to burn a valuable pick to get him. Not ruling him out of the strategy, but not saying slam dunk either. He never threw the ball more than 35x in a game but did average 4 TDs\/game in his last 4 games before going down.\nDREW BREES - NO\nBrees is still a great QB, but the Saints have definitely become a run 1st\/run 2nd team. Because defenses cannot sell out on stopping the run against Brees, the Saints offense will always be effective in running the ball. Brees threw the ball 536 times last year, the last time Brees threw the ball less than 629 attempts in a season, 2009. Brees has also been throwing the ball over 650 times 6 of the last 7 years before 2018. Brees did sign a 2 new year contract, but just to move the chains. Brees can still get big stats throwing to Kamara and Ingram, but the offensive philosophy has changed in New Orleans. Maybing brining in Cameron Meredith will change things.\nCARSON WENTZ - PHI\nThe Eagles have their offense on cruise control mode, and the Eagles got much better adding Mike Wallace to the crew. The only downside to Wentz is that the Eagles are so good, they could be running the ball in the 2nd half of all games as they kill the clock. Wentz is a lock to put up at least 1.5 TDs a game and can easily put up 3+ in the right matchup. Wentz will get you the numbers you want nearly every game.\nQB1\/QB2\nCAM NEWTON - CAR\nCam needed a new OC badly and Norv Turner can turn him into a star. The Panthers are doing what they can to make Newton go vintage, even drafting DJ Moore at WR in the 1st Round. There is no doubt the Panthers will open up the passing playbook with Cam, and most important the Panthers have a very nice schedule. The only concern about Cam is sometimes he forgets how to throw the ball and looks like a HS QB, but he has the talent to be the BEAST of all BEASTs. Great playoff schedule as well.\nMATT RYAN - ATL\nAlways nice to be in a dome, but during the Fantasy Playoffs he is only there Week 15 against a tough AZ Defense that can limit Julio Jones. The regular season schedule is not tough for Ryan, the addition of Ridley in the slot should open up things for all of the Falcons options. Matty Ice should be better this year now that he had a season to adjust to his new OC. Not saying Matty Ice will win you your league, but he can put up QB1 numbers in the right matchup.\nJARED GOFF - LAR\nGoff is a great pick if you draft Gurley. Goff is ranked this high mostly due to Sean McVay. McVay is a genius with his playoff book as Goff was throwing to wide open WRs all of 2017. The addition of Brandin Cooks is going to make like even easier for Goff as defenses do not know how to stop Gurley and all of their weapons. There is a bit of downside that Gurley should eat all the Rams TDs, but Goff will manage a way to end up with a lot of them.\nKIRK COUSINS - MIN\nCousins gets the chance to do big things with great WRs. Something he did not have last season. Cousins will also have a lot of dome games, 9 in total. If Cousins can past the tough part of his schedule in the beginning and turn into a QB1 by the end of the year, that potential is there. Cousins is a star, he has the talent and he can make for a solid pick.\nMATT STAFFORD - DET\nStafford has been the BEAST DOME savior of 2015\/2016, but those days appear to be heading in the opposite direction. Schedule is not horrible for Stafford but since that time he has lost Megatron\/Eric Ebron\/Anquan Boldin, only to be replaced by Marvin Jones\/Luke Wilson\/Kenny Golladay. The Lions have a ton of RBs as well and it would not be a shock to see the Lions try to run the ball a little more to get all those guys involved. While Stafford is a BEAST DOME legend, he is not the QB we need to target anymore. Not a playoff schedule you can count on. The Lions Run D is also very weak, which means teams will kill the clock against this group.\nPHILLIP RIVERS - LAC\nRivers still has a lot left in the tank, but with no Antonio Gates things seem weird. Losing Hunter Henry hurt but as long as Rivers has all of his athletic WRs the Chargers offense can be really fun to watch. Melvin Gordon is definitely the star of the show, but Rivers is a vet who knows how to get the job done for his team. Rivers schedule has a lot of ups and downs, but all in all there is potential for a rock solid QB1 season for Rivers. 4500+ Yards and 28 TDs in 2017, Rivers is still putting up big numbers.\nDEREK CARR - OAK\nThe Raiders have a very tough schedule this season, making Carr at best a QB2 in a lot of matchups this season. His weapons are at the top, his running game is great, his defense will keep his offense in every game. Carr has all the tools to have a big season, but it all depending on how dynamic this Raiders offense can be. While Carr will definitely have some strong games this season, you cannot rely on him for the playoffs for starters. Best bet for Carr is to buy low on him after his first 7 games, but the end of his season is no cake walk.\nANDREW LUCK - IND\nLuck does not have a great schedule in his first year back from arm surgery. He also does not have a lot of weapons to throw to. Outside of Hilton, Doyle and Ebron at TE are Luck's best targets. The good news is the Colts are going to get blown out a lot, which means Luck can make a living in the 4th quarter. However if his offensive line is bad and the Colts are just horrible as a team, you do not want to really have Luck on your squad. Do not draft Luck with the intent of using him as your QB1.\nCASE KEENUM - DEN\nBest part about Case is his playoff schedule, he can play like a low-end QB1 in any of those matchups pending on one condition. During the 2018 season, Keenum looks to be steady with a strong set of WRs next to him. He has not been great in out door enviroments and really thrived when he was with the Vikings and Texans. Weather will be a factor, but his weapons are strong. Not a QB you want to base your team around but he can sneak in with good numbers all-around.\nBENCH\nELI MANNING - NYG\nEli has a healthy Odell Beckham Jr and an improved Sterling Shepard\/Evan Engram. The Giants offense will rely on running the ball more, but all three of those passing options should have nice seasons which should turn Eli into a reliable bench QB waiting for his moment. Eli is very inconsistent at times, but when the matchup is right he should at the very least put up QB2 numbers, and can put up QB1 numbers. However in a tough game, Eli is definitely bench material.\nDAK PRESCOTT - DAL\nWhile Dak is a sexy name to grab on Draft Day, that is all he is at this point. With no Dez Bryant, Dak will be forced to spread the ball out a little more. However the Cowboys really lack that superstar WR who can beat one on one coverage, minus Cole Beasley for the 5 yard pass. Dak will need to use his legs to save his season, but even then the team relies on Zeke more or less to carry the team. Worst part about Dak, the Cowboys have a brutal schedule. Could be a good playoff savior and someone you can add on Waiver Wire later.\nJIMMY GAROPPOLO - SF\nFirst thing about Jimmy G, his schedule is not easy. Which makes him very hard to trust as a QB1. The options the 49ers gave him are not next level either, so it is really on Jimmy G to make magic happen with a group that would be backups on winning football teams. The 49ers will rely and lean on Jimmy G to throw the ball often which is nice, but the upside with his weapons is not a lot. There will be a few good starts here and there this season, but QB2 is his ceiling for a majority of his games. As good as Jimmy was in his last 4 games down the stretch, he never threw for over 300 Yards\/2 TDs in the same game.\nALEX SMITH - WAS\nSmith will go from Pro Bowl QB to backup QB really quick on Washington. Smith does not have the weapons to have a big season, he has to make the most of what he has. A conservative approach is best for the Redskins and Smith which does limit his upside, but he will have those occasional 2 TD games and every blue moon might throw for 3 of them. Not a QB you want to rely on by any means, but a QB who can be rock solid at getting low-end QB2 numbers on a consistent basis.\nANDY DALTON - CIN\nAndy has some good matchups this season, but when the matchup is not good at all, Dalton is not even worth considering. We will see if he matches up to antoher QB to cconsider, but as far as drafting him with the intent of him saving your season, good luck. If AJ Green has a bad matchup, Dalton is not worth even rostering.\nMARCUS MARIOTA - TEN\nTitans have a brutal schedule where Mariota is hardly a QB2 from Week 2-Week 7. Then he faces an equally hard slate of games right as the Fantasy Playoffs are kicking off. The Titans are going to lean on Henry in the running game, not a strong season from Mariota will not be fun to witness. Lots of games with less than 2 TDs and barely over 200 Yards with just enough running stats to push him by.\nJAMEIS WINSTON - TB\nWinston went from heading to Cam Newton career to Jamarcus Russell carrer very quickly. Last season was horrible for the Bucs now suspended three games because he groped an uber driver. Not the QB that the Tampa Bay community really wants to get behind and if Jameis does not show up in a big way with a very tough schedule after the Bucs can open 0-3, then the Bucs could quickly find themselves in tank mode and another wasted season for the talented Mike Evans. There will be a few good games for Jameis, but not enough to make him be the QB you must Draft. In fact, do not worry about him unless his schedule matches up well with another QB you are taking.\nWAIVER WIRE\nJOSH MCCOWN - NYJ\nMcCown showed that he can be QB relevant last year when healthy. He would have thrown for 3500 Yards and 20+ TDs which puts him somewhere on the board. The Jets offense is the same as far as throwing targets, minus Austin Seferian Jenkins who was never used consistently enough anyways. The biggest change has to Isiah Crowell coming into town hopefully making the Jets a team that can run the ball more. McCown will have som interesting upside games through the year, and McCown did throw the ball nearly 40x in 33% of his games last season. There is something interesting here, but still not worth drafting.\nPATRICK MAHOMES - KC\nFuture could be bright for Mahomes, and I expect it to be. 2018 will have a lot of growing pains. For starters the schedule is really tough for the Chiefs. They are also a run heavy squad. This is Patrick's first year as an every week starter and he is also without QB Coach Nagy. Mahomes will be learning on the fly, but you have no time to do that as a Fantasy Owner. Let someone else be tempted.\nBLAKE BORTLES - JAX\nBortles went from being a potential top 5 QB in his career, to someone who is likely a waiver wire option more than a QB2. The Jaguars have become a run 1st\/2nd\/3rd team, they also lost big star WR Allen Robinson. The Jags also lost Allen Hurns really leaving Bortles dry without his A squad from his best year. The Jags do have a lot of random role player talent at WR this year, but the Jags are running the ball anyways.\nRYAN TANNEHILL - MIA\nCrazy to think Sheep Experts used to rank this guy in the Top 10. Tannehill has gone way down hill, with no Jarvis Landry that stock can go down even further. Not a great schedule on top of everything as well as coming off of injury. Tannehill will do what he can do, but basically took this Dolphins team down for the last decade it feels like. Tannehill might have a few nice games through the year, but not a good year coming.\nTYROD TAYLOR - CLE\nWhile Tyrod has a lot of hype coming into the season, he has a lot of factors working against him. One, learning a new system is never an easy thing. Two, the Browns have a horrible schedule where he goes up against the best of the best secondaries often. Last, Tyrod is going to be horrible in cold weather like he is year after year at the end. Tyrod is not a QB you really want to own, only in a good matchup is he even worth considering to use. Even then, QB2 is really the ceiling.\nMITCHELL TRUBISKY - CHI\nWhile Mitch should improve greatly from year 1, and has a great schedule to start the year. Once we get past the half way point, Trubisky faces an awful schedule with likely a lot of really cold games. While Matt Nagy will do wonders for the passing game on that team, throwing ball in cold Chicago weather is not easy at all and not worth the price to see if he can do it.\nJOE FLACCO - BAL\nOdds are heavy against Flacco as the Ravens not only have a tough season, but the Ravens are also ready to turn to rookie QB Lamar Jackson the second their season is over. Flacco is playing for a job as he is a free agent at the end of the year, and if he looked anything like how he looked last season. Chances are he is not going to be a starting QB in 2019. Lots of pressure, but Flacco can handle it.\nSAM BRADFORD - AZ\nNot only will the Cardinals likely switch to Rosen at some point during the season, the Cardinals start off the season with two tough matchups against the Redskins and @Rams. The Cardinals are going to be running the ball a lot and taking deep shots is not part of the plan for AZ this year with no more John Brown. Bradford can be passed.\nJOSH ALLEN - BUF\nBills will turn to Allen very quickly, could be by the end of Week 3 after the Bills play 3 of the toughest secondaries in the NFL. Allen does not have the greatest cast of characters around him, and when the season gets towards the end when it is icy cold, no point in even considering Allen. The Bills are not the right team for Allen.
