On Sunday, I published a ranking of the RB position for this week’s matchups. In it, I mentioned that if the engagement was strong, I’d think about firing up another edition for the QB/WR positions. I don’t think it would feasible for one man to properly do one of these lists for all three positions each week, especially since the WR position in particular is quite exhaustive. But I have now put together a rankings list (with explanations) for QBs. You can find this week’s RB edition here.
Below, you will find that I have segmented this article into three parts. The first is a ranking of QBs I like this week, with rationale provided for each. The second segment is a list of QBs that are generally very good, but I do not like this week, with rationale provided for each. The final segment is where I provide some thoughts on QBs that I am conflicted about this week. There are 54 total QB entries included in this week’s article.
I will continue to provide these articles for paid subscribers for the remainder of the season.

The format of this is the same deal as when I did the RB version on Sunday. One thnig to note is that when I’m quoting the strengths of opposing teams’ defences according to Fantrax, I’m basing it on the number they provide when you look at a player’s matchup. As I understand it, this score is a measure of how opposing teams’ QBs/RBs/WRs/TEs (depending on what position the player of interest plays) have performed vs. that team.
I am also using standard scoring formats (four point passing TD, six point rushing TD) as my measure.
Jordan McCloud (vs. UConn) — This probably wasn’t the name you were expecting at the top of this list. But if it were all chalk, what would even be the point of this exercise then, right? McCloud’s been on an absolute heater for six
