Episode 6 – QB Tiers & QB Tears

The Coach and Rusty are BACK with another scintillating episode of the Fantasy Domination Podcast. In this episode, our heroes discuss the possibility of an 18 week NFL season and what that might mean for fantasy players. It also marks the beginning of our series on Dynasty positional tiers, starting with the Quarterbacks. It starts well, then goes to hell in a handbasket once Eli Manning is brought into play.

You give us 30 minutes, we’ll give you the championship. 

And if your podcast isn’t finished in 30 minutes (maybe because SOMEBODY couldn’t keep to time), the rest of the episode is FREE!

As an added bonus, here are the QB tiers discussed in the newest episode.

How our QB Tiers work

  • Youth rules in dynasty fantasy. You either have a guy you can build around for 5+ years, or you are playing year to year.
  • Every year, draft a rookie or second year QB. Worst case, he does nothing, best case he’s your starter. With the possible exception of this year, because the rookie QB class looks so bad.

The Dynasty Elite

  • Patrick Mahomes – His own tier, young with explosive offence, even with regression

Young Guns (young, talented, consistent, make guys around them better)

  • Andrew Luck
  • Deshaun Watson
  • Baker Mayfield

Young BB Guns (Young, talented, but major question marks and need a ‘prove it’ year)

  • Carson Wentz
  • Jared Goff
  • Dak Prescott
  • Mitch Trubinsky
  • Jimmy Garoppolo

Middle Agers (2-3 Year Window Guys – solid output, no upside. WYSIWYG)

  • Aaron Rodgers
  • Russell Wilson
  • Cam Newton
  • Matt Stafford
  • Matt Ryan 

The “Great Verticals”- (All talent, no track record. Worth rostering if you are a bad or rebuilding team, but not ready for primetime)

  • Josh Allen
  • Sam Darnold
  • Lamar Jackson
  • Kyler Murray

The Old Guys (you don’t build around these guys, you play them year to year and hope for the best. draft/trade accordingly)

  • Tom Brady
  • Drew Brees 
  • Ben Roethlisberger
  • Phillip Rivers

The Meh (Serviceable, not great, but also not entirely hateable. You can do better.)

  • Andy Dalton
  • David Carr
  • Jameis Winston (too much talent around him to be a nope, but still a hard choice)

Just nopes (If you have to start these guys, you are either crippled by injuries or you don’t know how to play fantasy football)

  • Joe Flacco
  • Eli Manning
  • Kirk Cousins
  • Ryan Fitzpatrick/Josh Rosen
  • Marcus Mariota
  • Nick Foles
  • Whoever starts in Washington

Rookies not worth rostering

  • Daniel Jones
  • Drew Lock
  • Dwayne Haskins
  • Will Grier
  • Ryan Finley
