Justin Herbert to the Moon

In real life, the quarterback is everything. It is not only the most important center in football, it is the most important center in team sports anywhere. In fantasy football? Quarterback is just another stand. It’s the third or fourth most important point out of the four main sites, depending on your point of view.

I think it’s the least important field position that the fantasy directors should solve (defense and kickers don’t count here).

That doesn’t mean we don’t want to do it right, of course. But you can do well at any point in the ADP with your quarterbacks, and in the draft salary cap, there are plenty of reasonable ways to attack the center. If you play in a league that requires only one player initially, you will never feel stressed or anxious in that position. There are a lot of acceptable options.

Keep in mind that my favorite tournaments are the ones that require more than one player; The League du jour chooses one Superflex spot, where the manager can choose the quarterback, the running back, the wide receiver, or the narrow end. This makes the league a de facto quarterback but it doesn’t completely handicap the team if they don’t have a second option now and then.

The dollar values ​​below are unscientific in nature but reflect how I see talent pools at the center of the middle. My phone number is on the left. The number on the right is what the player has ordered recently Vegas Flex salary leaguewhich was drafted earlier this week.

Do you have some disagreements? Good, that’s why we have a game. I welcome your logical disagreement on Twitter: Tweet embed.

More quirks are coming next week – after signal callers, we’ll have running apparitions.

Big tickets

$35 Josh Allen ($35)

Justin Herbert $32 ($29)

Joe Burrow $31 ($31)

$31 by Mar Jackson ($29)

$30 Patrick Mahomes ($32)

$29 Keeler Murray ($28)

Even though Allen is out of my proposed offer, I would probably play the wait/value game and go a different route with the quarterback builds, because I don’t want to give up the running or the receiver available in the Allen’s pocket. I also think he could be giving up a bit of running juice this year, and last YPA season has been mediocre. He is an excellent player. But others have a bullet to hit him. . . Herbert is linked to the list of Chargers who may be the best in the AFC, from 1 to 53, although an increase in the team’s pace would be nice. . . I suppose an appendectomy wouldn’t hold back Burrow, and it looks like the Bengals have finally fixed their offensive line. . . Speed ​​cut and connect to Jackson Mark Andrews Beautiful, but it is so needed Rashid Bateman In the second year, because the rest of the reception room in Baltimore is questionable. . . It might be strange to see Mahomes a little lower than usual, although he belongs at this level and I wouldn’t have much disagreement if anyone took him second overall in the position. Andy Reed needs to find a large-scale major shareholder among the many new candidates that Kansas City has added. . . Murray was reluctant to run after injuries hit him last year, and I don’t like the receiving group either, and I don’t trust Cliff Kingsbury. When Murray creeps to the top of my draft board, I’ll probably just ignore it and wait for the other level to start playing.

legal building blocks

$27 for Tom Brady ($21)

$27 for Russell Wilson ($30)

$25 from Dak Prescott ($30)

Galen Hurts $24 ($25)

$23 * Matthew Stafford ($32)

$22 from Kirk Cousins ​​($26)

$22 Derek Carr ($25)

$21 Tree Lance ($25)

$21 for Aaron Rodgers ($19)

There are some concerns about the inside of Tampa Bay’s offensive line, but Brady is as usual isolated by talented talent, which is also a good bet to play an entire season. His last dance should probably be a harmonious dance. . . Wilson did what Brady did in 2020, he escaped to a better position in time. even without Tim Patrick — which was sure to be on many of my shortlists, prior to his injury — Wilson has an above-average cut-off, not to mention more potency on the offense than he did in Seattle. . . Prescott desperately needs a second option to step forward outside to go along with him sir lamb (I like Dalton Schultz, but someone else is needed). if Will Fuller He’s healthy, and seems like the perfect candidate. . . Hurts has hasty juice and a great offensive line ahead of him, and AJ Brown It was a massive plus, but I still don’t quite trust the Hurts as a passerby. Much of his production last year came at garbage time; It’s great when it happens, but that’s not a sustainable business model. . .

Stafford will be in the twenties If not because of the uncertainty surrounding his attachment. Maybe I’ll spin it around so we can get some clarity. . . Cousins ​​finally got an offensive head coach to work with, and while the Vikings skill chart isn’t particularly deep, there are stars at the top. It’s a good choice if you prefer a frugal approach to the job. . . Carr is basically the AFC version of Cousins, an underrated veteran who throws into a solid pool of recipients. Las Vegas has problems up front, but it’s easier to hide passes than block them while running. . . It’s hard to tell what Lance is ready to do for Kamar, given that he’s been late for kindergarten for two years in a row. But his quick cut provides beautiful grounding. . . At first we thought Rodgers knew it Davant Adams He was heading out of town. Now it seemed Rodgers was as surprised as anyone. Rodgers still has plenty of stuff left in the tank, but the Green Bay pedestrian reception room significantly limits his upside. I will not work proactively at Rodgers for 2022.

Talk to them, talk to them

$14 Trevor Lawrence ($17)

Back Sign $12 ($15)

$11 Justin Fields ($14)

$10 Matt Ryan ($12)

$8 Daniel Jones ($13)

$7 Carson Wentz ($10)

Jared Goff $7 ($8)

$7 Ryan Tanehill ($7)

Like many QBs sophomores, Lawrence received the Mulligan Award. I can’t accept every professional scout might be wrong, and Urban Meyer has probably been the worst recent coach hire in NFL history. . . No one knows for sure if Tagovailoa could be an over-midfielder, but with Trek Hill here and Jaylene Waddell Ascending order, we’re about to find out. . . Fields was set up for failure by the Bears front desk, but his impulsiveness and athleticism provide reasonable fantasy ground. . . Ryan looks like a world class player compared to the exiled Wentz, who played far worse than his stats suggest. Ryan needs it too Michael Bateman To have a great year, but most of us are ready for it. . . Jones, like Lawrence, is entering a pivotal year but may finally be associated with positive coaching. . . Gauff has an average league level but Detroit’s talent for skill makes him interesting in the deeper leagues. . . Tannehill is in the second half of his career and no longer has Brown to drag him around the QB1 streak. Tennessee was the top seed last year but likely won’t be in the playoffs this year.

compromise

McJones $6 ($9)

$5 James Winston ($8)

$4 Zack Wilson ($7)

$3 Baker Mayfield ($7)

$2 Marcus Mariota ($6)

$2 Davis Mills ($5)

$2 * Deshaun Watson ($4)

$1 Mitch Trubesky ($5)

Gino Smith $1 ($1)

0 Jacoby Brisset Dollars ($2)

Jones is the vanilla pick in a position with plenty of bewildering upside options, but I could still live with him in a deep QB game if the others on my list were driven by the ceiling. . . Winston was a very clean player in Tampa and had a lot of fun in 2019, but the scheme is less ambitious in New Orleans, and I’m not sure what the reception room will be like unless Chris Olaf He is an instant star. No, I don’t act proactively Michael Thomas (or Alvin Camarafor that reason). . . I want to see Mayfield click if I can only draft DJ More in confidence . . . Treadmills are much better than most people think. He will play 12 years in this league. Houston will probably be looking to replace him next year, and that makes sense – you need a QB that could theoretically be a springboard for a championship race. But that doesn’t mean Mills can’t play. If nothing else, it supports the fictional value of Branden Chefsforever underestimated.
