As we roll along this offseason, we are laying the groundwork for early best ball drafts, new dynasty startups, and everything else under the fantasy sun as we gear up for the next NFL season.

My full 2024 fantasy football rankings are already available as part of the Sharp Fantasy Football Draft Kit, but we also wanted to add some notes to those rankings for each position.

These rankings will move and be updated throughout the offseason as the landscape changes.

While these rankings will only have a short blurb for each player, there will be more in-detail player writeups coming with the full tiers later in June after our 2024 NFL Preview book drops.

Fantasy Football Rankings:

Let’s kick things off with the fantasy QB rankings.

Fantasy QB Rankings 2024:

  1. Josh Allen, Bills
  2. Jalen Hurts, Eagles
  3. Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs
  4. Lamar Jackson, Ravens
  5. Anthony Richardson, Colts
  6. C.J. Stroud, Texans
  7. Kyler Murray, Cardinals
  8. Dak Prescott, Cowboys
  9. Joe Burrow, Bengals
  10. Jayden Daniels, Commanders

2024 Fantasy Football Quarterback Rankings:

1. Josh Allen: Has been the QB3, QB1, QB2, and QB1 in points per game in each of the past four seasons.

2. Jalen Hurts: In three seasons as a starter, has finished as the QB6, QB1, and QB2 in points per game.

3. Patrick Mahomes: Averaged a career-low 15.5 passing points per game last season (10th among quarterbacks). Was the QB14 in points per game overall. Before last season, had been a top-six quarterback in points per game in each of the five previous seasons. The additions of Marquise Brown and Xavier Worthy should provide a shot of explosive playmaking this offense has lacked since Tyreek Hill left.

4. Lamar Jackson: Was able to stay on the field for the full season and closed as the QB4 in overall scoring and the QB3 in points per game for fantasy. Since taking over as the starter in 2019, has been inside of the top 10 in points per game in each of those five seasons.

5. Anthony Richardson: Passing issues from college were present over his small sample as a rookie, but was a beast as a fantasy asset. He averaged 0.73 fantasy points per dropback. Josh Allen led the league over a full season with 0.63 points per dropback. Had as many top-six scoring weeks in only four games as C.J. Stroud did in 15.

6. C.J. Stroud: QB9 in points per game in historic rookie season. Arrow pointing fully up for an offense that added Stefon Diggs and Joe Mixon. The only remaining question is how much rushing gets added on. Was only a top-six scorer in two weeks last season since he averaged 2.3 rushing points per game (QB26).

7. Kyler Murray: Since entering the NFL, has finished as QB12, QB5, QB4, QB9, and QB10 in fantasy points per game. Best stretch as a passer came attached to an alpha WR1, something Arizona could have out of the box with Marvin Harrison Jr.

8. Dak Prescott: Led the NFL in completions (410) and touchdown passes (36) while completing a career-high 69.5% of his passes. The Dallas defense should be worse, meaning the offense will be tasked with doing more lifting in 2024.

9. Joe Burrow: We are now four years in, and he has been inside of the top 10 in fantasy points per game for just one of those seasons. Injuries and the division have been a thorn. Has posted a 33.3% QB1 scoring rate in division games compared to a 55.9% QB1 scoring rate in games outside of the AFC North.

10. Jayden Daniels: Sky-high ceiling in a climate that should force action. Should run more than Caleb Williams and enters the NFL with a higher passing floor than Anthony Richardson. My favorite quarterback at cost for fantasy right now based on his ceiling potential, and floor is likely higher than credited due to his rushing ability and landing spot. Working with Kliff Kingsbury as a rookie in 2019, Kyler Murray was the QB8 in overall scoring and the QB12 in points per game.

11. Brock Purdy: Was the QB6 in overall scoring and the QB8 in points per game in his first full season as a starter. Even if we see some regression from a hyper-efficient 2023, the offensive situation is as good if not better than any other passer in the league.

12. Jordan Love: Was the QB6 in points per game in first season as a starter while throwing to a revolving door of available options. Only finished lower than QB16 in three weeks last season. Was at his best to close last year, closing as the QB2 in fantasy scoring from Week 11 on.

13. Caleb Williams: Decorated prospect in arguably the best offensive climate we have seen a No. 1 pick enter the league with. I do believe he will have less rushing production than assumed in the NFL, but early-career Deshaun Watson-style fantasy upside is present.

14. Deshaun Watson: Has thrown 14 total touchdown passes since the 2020 season, but the lights remain on for fantasy. Over his five full games in 2023, Watson averaged 17.7 fantasy points per game with three top-10 scoring weeks.

15. Tua Tagovailoa: Playing the first full season of his career, led the NFL in passing yards (4,624) in 2023. While Tua has posted hyper-efficient numbers under Mike McDaniel in total, he has been a boom-or-bust fantasy option and needs to be steadier when facing top competition to get over the hump. Tagovailoa has seven weeks as a top-four scorer over the past two seasons but just five other weeks as a QB1 scorer.

Don’t miss out on the best fantasy football coverage in the business

16. Trevor Lawrence: Took a step back last year after a strong close to his second season. For fantasy, Lawrence has now opened his career as QB37, QB13, and QB17 in points per game.

17. Kirk Cousins: Was having one of the best seasons of his career last year before suffering an Achilles injury. Now 36, Cousins is coming off a major injury but has an offense littered with young playmakers, a system he is familiar with, and plays one of the lightest schedules based on early projections.

18. Jared Goff: The marriage of Goff and offensive coordinator Ben Johnson is a good one. He has been the QB10 and QB7 in overall scoring the past two seasons, closing those years as the QB15 and QB16 in points per game.

19. Aaron Rodgers: Will turn 41 this December coming off an Achilles injury, but there is still late-career Tom Brady energy here with the Jets rebuilding their offensive line.

20. Matthew Stafford: Will be 36 this season but bounced back strong in 2023, especially to close the season. Over his final six games of the regular season, Stafford was fourth in the NFL with a 109.5 rating, ranking third over that span with a 7.1% touchdown rate and fifth in yards per pass attempt (8.0 Y/A).
