NFL quarterbacks are the most important part of the team and they make the highest earnings in fantasy football. It could be tough to pick from so many names as one game could change everything. NFL Week 1 games for the 2019 season are over and it has given us an insight on which starting quarterbacks can we trust. The offensive side also plays an important role in determining the value of a quarterback as how good they handle the defense. Here are rankings for all the 32 opening quarterbacks for the Week 2 games.

Tier 1: The Biggest Names

Fantasy Football Predictions Rankings Quarterback Lamar Jackson

Patrick Mahomes could have been the number 1 quarterback on the spot but his game was not that outstanding in the season opener. Jackson can easily shatter the bad defense of Arizona Cardinals and hence deserves the top spot.

1. Lamar Jackson, Ravens
2. Patrick Mahomes, Cheifs 
3. Tom Brady, Patriots 
4. Dak Prescott, Cowboys 

Tier 2: Names to have in your List

Fantasy Football Predictions Rankings Quarterback Cam Newton

Deshaun Watson did his best against the Saints but still the Texans lost the game and hence he will lose some points. Derek Carr showed that he still has the potential even without Antonio Brown on the team.

5. Cam Newton, Panthers 
6. Russell Wilson, Seahawks
7. Deshaun Watson, Texans 
8. Derek Carr, Raiders
9. Philip Rivers, Chargers 
10. Carson Wentz, Eagles 

Tier 3: Expectations are High

Fantasy Football Predictions Rankings Quarterback Baker Mayfield

The names in this list such as Baker Mayfield are good quarterbacks but they kind of disappointed everyone in their first games. It doesn’t mean there are no expectations from them, maybe Week 2 gives them a performance boost.

11. Matt Ryan, Falcons
12. Baker Mayfield, Browns
13. Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers
14. Drew Brees, Saints
15. Aaron Rodgers, Packers
16. Jared Goff, Rams

Tier 4: Things could Happen

Fantasy Football Predictions Rankings Quarterback Jamies Winston

17. Jameis Winston, Buccaneers
18. Kirk Cousins, Vikings
19. Andy Dalton, Bengals
20. Jimmy Garoppolo, 49ers
21. Josh Allen, Bills

Tier 5: Replacement Names

22. Kyler Murray, Cardinals
23. Matthew Stafford, Lions
24. Jacoby Brissett, Colts
25. Mitchell Trubisky, Bears

29. Case Keenum, Redskins
30. Trevor Siemian, Jets
