PPR Rankings: Quarterback

By Michael Hawes

How invaluable would a set of fantasy football rankings be if it was based on 96 veterans from some of the most popular and knowledgeable FF boards around. Well, we have it! Here are the results for the Quarterbacks.

The Cafe has 12 members participating in a 96 team league called the IBL, The Inter Board League, a rival league between eight of the most popular fantasy football boards on the Internet. Eight separate drafts were conducted under the following scoring rules: one point per 25 yards and four points per TD for quarterbacks; one point per 10 yards and six points per TD for skill position, with all players getting a full point per reception.  Over 350 trades were made during these drafts, with owners chasing the players they wanted to draft. These rankings are as accurate as we can get.

Here are the results, in a tiered ranking, from 96 seasoned fantasy football veterans. A special thanks goes out to aaawall91 for the original spreadsheet that was transformed into these rankings, as well as Cowboys 4 Life and all the other league members who helped keep the spreadsheets updated.

This ranking is strictly from the draft results. No variations were made, although notations have been made based on recent news.
