Top 30 Quarterbacks

Baker Mayfield is projected to average 22.3 fantasy points per game and his projected total of 356 points is good enough to be ranked #9 at his position. Last season, he finished as the #16 ranked player so we are projecting a big improvement in 2020. One player who is expected to slip in the fantasy quarterback rankings is Drew Brees who last season was #8 but is projected to be #12 this season. With 350 total projected fantasy points he is still a starting fantasy quarterback.
