Welcome to the first installation of what is to be our 2016 Fantasy Football Rankings! It’s such a big deal, we have to capitalize the whole shebang. Just like your mother. Because, you know, shebangs. Regardless, as you can see right above my lovely remarks about your mother, we’ve had some pretty good success with our “ranking accuracy” the past couple of years. To be totally honest, the past two years, Razzball’s priority with rankings has been consistency, not necessarily a high-risk/high-reward strategy. And I think it shows and I think it’s the better path. Don’t worry, I’m patting myself on the back as I’m typing this, which you might thing is hard, but I’m pretty sure elbows weren’t really created for any other reason than to do this one thing. Any ways, now that the self-aggrandizing part is completed, I have to state, the quarterback position has gotten increasingly… meh. You have basically a mish-mash of top-5 or top-6 guys that you’d all be happy having, and then a whole bunch of interchangeable pieces until you get around to the point where it doesn’t matter anymore. I call that the Andy Dalton zone, or what is essentially the “gingerzone”. Which, come to think of it, would probably be a great 80’s hairband name. Regardless, here are your 2016 Quarterback Rankings, with the added bonus of Mark Sanchez. You know you want some of that nacho…

    I think you forgot Johnny Manziel??

      @mortimer: He’d be number one in some of my other rankings…

    I’ll still gladly take 13th ranked Bortles and not complain one bit. They’ll still be playing catch-up a lot, don’t you think?

      @Dr. Kenneth Noisewater: Yeah, he’s a wild card for me. I might like him more and more as time goes forward.

    In a PPR format, 12 team 2 QB (super flex) most managers end upup drafting 3 QB. I personally make sure I don’t take guys with the same bye week. What is your strategy in a redraft league with the super flex option? I tend to wait for RB and get quarterback and wide recievers. Do you agree?

      @I’mgettingsomeHeadley: I agree, but to a point. If the talent outweighs the roster bottleneck you might face, I’d certainly go for it. On the RB’s, I’ll be writing about this soon, but especially this year, I’m not valuing RB’s as high as in the past. It started a few years back, but things are changing…

    Can’t wait to see your tight end rankings, especially when Gronk got the nod for the Madden cover. :D

      @Dorian S.: Pretty sure Gronk will be at the top… spoiler alert!

    Might be hard to believe, but Alex Smith is going to suprise people with his stats this next season. He’ll be an absolute steal going undrafted

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Tristan: As an undrafted QB, I think I agree. He doesn’t really hurt you, and offers stability. I don’t think he eclipses a lot of guys in most formats, but I can see where there’s value.

    You would actually pick Tannehill over Cousins?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Troy: It’s pretty close, but right now, I’m not too high on Cousins. It’s based on a lot of things I saw (I live in DC). I’m definitely going to elaborate this specifically later on in the preseason. I’m going to be lower on him than others, for sure.

      • Troy says:
        (link)

        @Jay: So if you live in DC, how much of that is bias

    if you were to put this rankings in tiers, approximately how would you organize that (like top 5 is one tier, next 3 is another, etc.)

    Thanks

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Baseball Fan 2000: I’ll probably introduce tiers once all the rankings are complete, but I think you have it right. Top-5 to top-8 to top-12 to top-18ish I think.

      • Baseball Fan 2000 says:

        @Jay: thanks!

    I’m curious as to why you are so high on Romo. Reports on Dez have been good, but we won’t know for sure until we see him in camp. Are you assuming he is back 100%? Do you not worry that Dallas is going to lean heavy on their shiny new rookie rb and lessen Romo’s fantasy production?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Rodney: I’m not worried as of now. I think Romo doesn’t change much (when healthy) from what’s around him. I think he’s still a pretty stable buy, considering some of his peers.
