The 2019 NFL season is almost here! Well, the preseason at least. The Hall of Fame Game between the Atlanta Falcons and Denver Broncos is just a few days away. The regular season is a little more than five weeks away, but football is back baby! Of course, that means redraft fantasy leagues will be drafting left and right over the next month or so. With that in mind, here are my top 12 quarterbacks for the 2019 season.
After a forgettable 2018 season, that along with costing longtime head coach Mike McCarthy his job ended with a mediocre 6-9-1 record and another missed playoff opportunity. They didn’t stand on ceremony, having made a lot of changes in the offseason. The first order of business was filling that vacant head coaching position. Continue reading →
NFL Networks Elliot Harrison recently compiled a list of his top 25 QB’s of All-Time, and his list for some people was god awful, and for some it was accurate but there are a couple things we all agree on. A) Only three QB’s have a legitimate argument for who is the G.O.A.T, Peyton Manning, Joe Montana, and Tom Brady, B) Aaron Rodgers must be in your top 10, although he is overrated by the masses.

Now we’re getting to the juicy bits, all the prolific passers of this era have really changed things for the future of the NFL. Teams are now passing more than ever and running less than ever, like in 2011 when teams that year on average passed 105 more times than they ran the ball, and in 2012, when teams passed on average 120 more times than they ran the ball. The times had changed very noticeably.
What is going on with Aaron Rodgers? Not just in fantasy, but in the NFL as well. He has always been in the discussion of who is the G.O.A.T. but this year he is not playing up to his standards. I know the excuse can be made for the Packers having young receivers, and he really misses Jordy Nelson. But Rodgers has always had the ability to elevate the talent around him.
