QB Sleepers

 

Bortles, Blake - JAC

Bortles, Blake

The Jaguars' franchise turned a corner last season, but the new run-first mentality and second-half leads led to smaller role for Bortles. The No. 4 fantasy quarterback in 2015 fell to eighth in 2016 and 13th last season. For the first time since his rookie season, Bortles fell outside the top 10 in pass attempts and completions. He does make up some ground with his legs, as he has managed at least 310 rushing yards in each of his four seasons and has seven rushing scores during the past three seasons. With Donte Moncrief, Austin Seferian-Jenkins and star guard Andrew Norwell added to the mix, Bortles' supporting cast is better, but his underwhelming efficiency and the team's run-first scheme make him no more than a low-ceiling QB2.


Winston, Jameis - TB

Winston, Jameis

Winston's 2017 season was widely considered a letdown, as he missed three games due to injury and the Buccaneers struggled to a 5-11 record. A deeper look, however, shows that Winston took his game to another level in his third NFL season. The 2015 first overall pick posted career-best marks in completion percentage (64 percent), off-target rate (17 percent), interception rate (2.5 percent) and yards per attempt (7.9) while throwing downfield more often (10.6 average depth of throw). Winston posted a top-10 fantasy week in 46 percent of his starts, which was ninth at the position. Winston is a smart post-hype target late in your draft.


Mahomes II, Patrick - KC

Mahomes II, Patrick

The Chiefs traded Alex Smith to Washington during the offseason, which means Mahomes is the team's new starting quarterback. The 2017 first-round pick has appeared in only one game ' a Week 17 start against a tough Denver defense ' during which he completed 22 of 35 passes for 284 yards. Mahomes is 6-foot-2, 225 pounds with a huge arm and solid accuracy. He also adds value with his legs, having rushed for 285 yards and 12 touchdowns on 131 carries during his final season at Texas Tech. His inexperience makes him risky, but with Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins, Travis Kelce and Kareem Hunt at his disposal, Mahomes has massive fantasy upside.


Trubisky, Mitch - CHI

Trubisky, Mitch

Trubisky was the second overall pick in the 2017 draft, and it didn't take him long to overtake Mike Glennon as the Bears' starting quarterback. Trubisky appeared in 12 games, completing 59 percent of his throws while accounting for nine touchdowns and seven interceptions. Trubisky struggled with accuracy (20 percent off-target rate), took a lot of sacks (31), struggled with fumbles (10) and wasn't close to being fantasy relevant (two weekly finishes better than 14th). Of course, he had one of the league's worst supporting casts in a bland, run-heavy offense. Chicago brought in creative, pass-first head coach Matt Nagy and added Allen Robinson, Anthony Miller, Taylor Gabriel and Trey Burton to Trubisky's arsenal during the offseason. The second-year QB is a candidate for a big leap forward and thus is a strong late-round flier.


BRADFORD, SAM - ARI

BRADFORD, SAM

Bradford is now in Arizona after appearing in 80 games during the past eight seasons with the Rams, Eagles and Vikings. Replacing Carson Palmer, who retired, Bradford plays a super-conservative game, as shown by his 7.3 career average depth of throw, which is higher than only Alex Smith among passers with 600-plus attempts since 2010. As a result, Bradford hasn't managed much fantasy production; his best finish was 16th in 2012. Durability is also a massive concern, as Bradford has managed 16-game seasons only twice during his career (2010 and 2012). Bradford's top targets ' David Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald ' are strong, but depth is severely lacking and first-round pick Josh Rosen figures to be promoted quickly. There's little upside here.


KEENUM, CASE - DEN

KEENUM, CASE

Keenum takes over as the starter in Denver after a career-best season in 2017, when he completed 68 percent of his 481 attempts for 3,547 yards, 22 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. Keenum's completion percentage trailed only Drew Brees (72 percent) for best in the league, and he was charted as off-target 14 percent of the time, which was third best (Drew Brees, Carson Palmer). Keenum posted the eighth-most fantasy points during the 14 weeks he was on the field for at least 90 percent of the pass plays. For all intents and purposes, Keenum was a fringe QB1. His supporting cast isn't quite as good in Denver, but he will have Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders at his disposal. Keenum should be viewed as a back-end QB2.


Jackson, Lamar - BAL

Jackson, Lamar

The Ravens traded up and selected Jackson in the first round of the draft. During his final two seasons at Louisville, Jackson threw for 57 touchdowns, ran for 39 more and was intercepted 19 times. An elite rusher, he totaled an absolutely absurd 4,132 yards and 50 touchdowns on 655 carries during 38 games at Louisville. Jackson's NFL completion percentage may end up being low, but he'll make up for missed throws with his incredible speed, athleticism and rushing ability. His reliance on his legs and slight build (6-foot-2, 216 pounds) raise obvious questions about his durability, but the upside here is massive. Jackson is unlikely to play much as a rookie, but he'll be in the QB1 discussion if called on to start.
