Fantasy QB Rankings Week 17: Who to start, sit at quarterback in fantasy football

Championship week is upon us, and if you’ve had the luxury of making it to the title game, kudos. Most championship-caliber rosters likely have a stable plug-and-play signal caller, but with a slew of injuries and QB changes throughout the league, that might not actually hold true. As always, our Week 17 fantasy QB rankings serve to help guide you in the right direction on who to start at fantasy’s highest-scoring position.

Right off the bat, we’ll be monitoring Jalen Hurts (right shoulder), Lamar Jackson (knee), Mike White (ribs), and Colt McCoy (concussion) throughout the week, adjusting our rankings when news breaks regarding their injury statuses. All four are truly up in the air, and at least three could be started this week depending on the size of your league.

For those searching for a championship-winning QB off the waiver wire, we highlighted Gardner Minshew (vs. Saints in Week 17), Russell Wilson (@ Chiefs), Brock Purdy (@ Raiders), and McCoy (@ Falcons) as potential adds in last week’s waiver wire watchlist. While it’s tough to stomach running Wilson out as your QB1 in championship week, he faces a Chiefs defense that’s allowed the fourth-most fantasy points to QBs and recently put forth his best fantasy point output of the season back in Week 14 (247 passing yards, three TDs, 57 rushing yards).

Purdy and McCoy also draw plus matchups against two defenses that rank within the bottom of the league in EPA/drop-back this season. Given Purdy’s elite supporting cast, he’s always a threat to toss two TD passes while McCoy could exploit a Falcons defense sporting the second-highest drop-back success rate (51.7 percent). Given the matchups, both have solid floors. (Update: McCoy will remain out, and David Blough will start for Arizona.) That’s also true for Minshew, who proved last week that he can produce in any matchup thanks to Philly’s stable of stud playmakers. For those in very deep leagues, you could also try Mac Jones (vs. Dolphins), as Miami is allowing the second-most fantasy points to QBs.


Jared Goff (vs. Bears) and Aaron Rodgers (vs. Vikings) are the main bubble QBs who get a nice bump because of matchups. Goff faces a lackluster Bears defense allowing the highest EPA/drop-back this season (0.192) inside cozy Ford Field. He didn’t have a massive game against the Bears in Week 10 (236 passing yards, one TD), but he’s in line to torch a Bears defense that sports PFF’s lowest pass-rush grade (53.1). Assuming Goff receives solid pass protection, he’s thrived in a clean pocket, posting the third-highest clean pocket accuracy rating. Rodgers could also see an increase in his start percentage when matched up against a Vikings defense that’s allowed the 27th-highest EPA/drop-back since Week 10 (0.150) and most recently allowed Daniel Jones to throw for 334 yards.

On the flip side, Tua Tagovailoa (@ Patriots), Geno Smith (vs. Jets), Trevor Lawrence (@ Texans), Daniel Jones (vs. Colts), and Derek Carr (vs. 49ers) profile as risky starts against some of the top defenses in terms of the fewest EPA/drop-back allowed this season. (Update: Jarrett Stidham will start in place of Carr.) We understand starting Tagovailoa despite a tougher matchup, as he’s virtually matchup-proof. Smith and Lawrence are tougher calls, but they’ve been solid enough lately to merit starts in most 12-team leagues. (Update: Tagovailoa has been placed in concussion protocol, and Teddy Bridgewater is preparing to start.)

Week 17 DFS: Best values

Jones and Carr owners should pivot to more stable signal-callers. The 49ers’ defense has posted the second-lowest EPA/drop-back this season (-0.103 EPA) and could really limit the Raiders’ offensive output, while Jones’ relatively low ceiling limits his appeal against Indy’s 10th-ranked pass defense.
