2017 Quality QB2 Options

3 August 2017

Philip Rivers baby blue
.
Not everybody can land a Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Andrew Luck, Big Ben, Cam Newton, Russell Rilson or Matt Ryan in their fantasy drafts. If you miss out on an elite quarterback it’s not a bad plan to nab a quality QB2 that you can play the matchup game with when your starter has a tougher opponent. Assuming Jameis Winston, Kirk Cousins, Marcus Mariota and Dak Prescott round out your QB1s, here are some quality QB2 options.
.
Philip Rivers, Los Angeles Chargers – Rivers is always a good option for a low-end QB1 or high-end QB2. He has averaged 4,485.5 yards and 31.25 touchdowns over the past four years. He’s often overlooked, but he finished 5th in passing yards and 4th in touchdown passes. Once again a dozen or so quarterbacks will likely go off the board before Rivers.
.
Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions – Stafford is another one that seems to be forgotten about on draft day. Yet he finished 6th with 4,327 yards. He only threw 24 touchdowns (14th), which has kept him from fantasy greatness. Stafford has only topped 30 touchdowns twice. However, he’s averaged 4,583.5 yards over the past six seasons.
.
Eli Manning, New York Giants – Manning throws to arguably the best wide receiver in the game. He has averaged 4,291 yards and 30.3 touchdowns over the past three seasons. Last year Manning finished 13th in passing yards (4,027) and tied for 10th with 26 touchdowns.
.
Derek Carr, Oakland Raiders – After finishing with 28 touchdowns to 6 interceptions to go along with 3,937 yards in an injury-shortened season, it would not be a stretch if Carr went as a QB1. If not, he’s a real nice QB2.
.
Carson Palmer, Arizona Cardinals – Palmer finished 9th with 4,233 yards and tied for 10th with 26 touchdowns. He had 4,671 yards and 35 touchdowns in 2015. His age makes him a little scary, but Palmer can still produce.
.
Andy Dalton, Cincinnati Bengals – Dalton throws to A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert. He finished 11th with 4,206 yards. The injuries to the two aforementioned stars limited him to 18 touchdown passes. He has averaged 23.6 touchdowns in six season.
