ADP Update: Quarterbacks in Flux

submit to reddit

This week created a lot of churn in the quarterback rankings. In order to get a grip on all of it for your draft, make sure to review the latest ADP for quarterbacks.

For convenience, here it is below.  This includes data from 12-team drafts on only Thursday, August 20th. Keep in mind that these rankings could change quickly though depending on how the preseason plays out.

New King

By the slimmest of margins, Tom Brady is neck-and-neck with Drew Brees, and possibly slightly ahead. Not much of a surprise given Brady's solid game that has eased fears of his knee injury lingering.

Sick of Favre Yet?

Well, there are enough drafters who aren't sick of him.  Brett Favre is going as the #14 quarterback right now, right after Roethlisberger and before Hasselbeck.  For 12-team leagues, he's beeing treated as a high-end QB#2.

The good news is that if you had been targeting Hasselbeck as a sleeper backup quarterback, your chances of drafting him have increased a bit.  The bad news is that if you drafted Sage Rosenfels while Favre was "retired," you're probably a little ticked off right now.

Hope for Vick?

Vick is getting some attention, and as the 22nd QB off the board, some people are taking a chance on him as a backup.

Poor Bulger

With the news of Marc Bulger injuring his finger, he has dropped from the 24th QB to the 29th.  He is currently targeted to be back by the regular season opener, but this injury puts a dent in his and the rest of the Rams' fantasy value. He isn't an amazing quarterback, but he is a league above his replacement, Kyle Boller.

More Changes to Come...

The only constant in the NFL is that nothing is constant.  Between injuries, comebacks, and competition, the quarterback you are excited about drafting today may be yesterday's news tomorrow. A mock draft or two is a great way to stay on top of the trends and ahead of your competition.
