Quarterback Draft Rankings for 2023

Drew DeLuca, a Top 25 FantasyPros Ranker (Multi-Year Accuracy, 2020-2022), kicks off our annual Draft Rankings series with his take on the quarterback landscape for the 2023 fantasy football season.

The 2023 NFL season is upon us! Training camps kick off in a matter of moments, and as players on all 32 teams worked out in preparation, we honed projections and fine-tuned our rankings. We are QBList, so we naturally begin with our Quarterbacks List.

The first tier of quarterbacks is clear: Jalen Hurts and Patrick Mahomes, who faced off in Super Bowl LVII, with Josh Allen sandwiched in between. Below them is a consensus foursome of Joe Burrow, Lamar Jackson, Justin Herbert, and Justin Fields, with Trevor Lawrence nipping at their heels.

After that, it gets interesting: the duo of Deshaun Watson and Tua Tagovailoa is the next grouping, two players who could find themselves moving up a level if they revert to form and stay healthy, respectively. Next comes a tier that includes several solid-but-unspectacular options, including Kirk Cousins, Dak Prescott, and Jared Goff. Geno Smith is among a few in this group who would surprise no one with a Top 12 finish.

Below are Drew DeLuca’s quarterback rankings as of August 1, 2023, complete with a few notes on each player. His rankings are available now on FantasyPros.com, and our updated QB List Staff Rankings will likewise be available on FantasyPros shortly. Both sets of rankings appear in the Top 25 of FantasyPros’ Multi-Year Accuracy Rankings (2020-present), so be sure to bookmark them to find the latest updates as we go forward and update our rankings in lockstep with training camp injuries and depth chart changes.
