Now that the draft has passed we are officially in what is called the dead zone of football. I feel a Top Gun remix coming soon to bring in this awful time of year. “Highway to the NFL Dead Zone, I’ll take you Right into the NFL Dead Zone“…ok that was bad and I’ll stop because Sky has already told me that my singing is not welcome in any of the Razzball platforms including the football podcast which is a bit disappointing. Speaking of singing did you hear the big news? Apparently the breaking story for the NFL is that Carrie Underwood will be replacing Faith Hill for Sunday Night Football…Not impressed but as long as it’s not Cee Lo on Thursdays I’m ok with any musical changes they make, and is that not the worst intro in the history of television? I guess it could be worse; we could have Nicki Minaj¬†accompanied by the Screaming Spurs lady. Seriously if that happened I might have to stop watching football all together and start watching soccer. Hmm fantasy soccer…not sure how that would work. Seems like there would be a lot of ties. But enough of that, I don’t think that I could give up football so we will try to pass the time and I’ll be giving you my take on this year’s dynasty rankings by position so lets look at some of the top quarterbacks for 2013.

When compiling my rankings, I took several things into account but one thing that can’t be overlooked is the age and long term potential of a player. When building your dynasty team, it is just as important to look at your quarterback’s potential for years ahead as well as their immediate potential and find a balance between the two. For instance, Peyton Manning has the immediate potential to be the top fantasy scoring passer this year but you might not get muck more than a couple years out of the veteran. Compare that to up and comer Russell Wilson that could post similar numbers but with this being his second year you could have your franchise quarterback locked up for the next 10-12 years. You also need to observe the back up situation for aging quarterbacks and what type offense the back up will be stepping into. With this being said, there are very different opinions on how to rank dynasty players, especially quarterbacks, so lets take a look at my top 60 for 2013 and feel free to comment on players you feel should be lower or higher and why.

    16-team salary cap dynasty league. I have inherited Russell Wilson and Matt Cassel. Both will be on my roster this year. I believe Wilson is signed through 2017. I have one more year with Cassel. I want to draft a rookie. Hopefully that guy or Cassel will start when Wilson has a bye and hopefully Wilson never misses a game. That is sure to suck in this league. 11th year for the league but this will be my first year in it. If the QB situation blows, I will exit after 2014.

    Anyway, Tyler Wilson sound good? 4th round or later? I have no first round pick, two twos and other stuff later on. I will target RBs with my first few picks, so I think Geno Smith will not end up on my team.

    I wrote that before I saw the entire list you have there. I see you have Wilson pretty high up. IDP league, 16 teams, ehh 4th round might even be too early.

    • @Wallpaper Paterson: I liked Tyler Wilson a lot coming into this draft and reports are that he will give an unproven Matt Flynn some serious competition, I think he has a good chance to be the starter next year my only concern is the lack of legitimate wide receiving threats for the Raiders. Another guy to look at long term would be Mike Glennon, not sure if the Buccaneers are sold on Freeman. I’ve seen both go at the end of drafts with teams loading up early on RBs and WRs so you should be able to wait on them. Love Russell Wilson this year by the way.

        @Murph: I didn’t see Glennon play in college. All I can go on is scouting reports. Most seem to indicate he has the talent but is too erratic. I am thinking about Derek Anderson and I don’t like that.

          @Wallpaper Paterson:
          He has a lot of work to do to progress into a stater and needs to put on some weight but the Bucs took him early for a reason I think they see his potential and has the ceiling to be the big time passing threat in the NFC South. Small chance he doesn’t work out maybe not worth the risk in your situation though

            @Murph: I would draft him in my 5th round or later. I don’t base my picking off of scout comments. It’s just that I wish I had seen him play so that I would already have my own opinion.
