The quarterback position is as deep as it has ever been. Here are four dynasty quarterback values who stand out as great picks relative to their ADP.
Russell Wilson (QB6)
Russell Wilson’s ADP has dropped because Dak Prescott has some helium and Seattle’s offense is a run-first unit. Despite being 31 years old, Wilson remains an elite option amongst the dynasty quarterback values with some rushing upside as well. He’s had over 300 yards rushing in seven of his eight seasons as the Seahawks’ starting quarterback. Wilson has reportedly asked Seattle to open up the playbook in 2020 and if that happens, he should easily outperform his dynasty ADP. With his efficiency, even getting 550 pass attempts would be a big boost to his fantasy stock. Regardless, Wilson has a rock-solid QB1 floor but also the upside to finish as a top-3 player at the position. Let him eat.
Drew Lock (QB18)
In my film review of Drew Lock heading into the 2019 draft, I loved his arm talent and as he heads into his first season as a starter, he has a nice array of weapons around him. Besides Courtland Sutton, Noah Fant, and Philip Lindsey, the Broncos added Melvin Gordon, Jerry Jeudy, and KJ Hamler in the offseason. So, can Lock make the leap into dynasty QB1 territory? He absolutely can and he showed flashes of promise last season throwing five touchdowns in his first two games. He shredded Houston for 308 yards and three touchdowns and the Broncos finished 4-1 in his five starts. The Broncos may keep the reigns tight in 2019, especially early, but his long-term outlook is bright. Lock is well worth his current price tag as one of our dynasty quarterback values.
Gardner Mineshew (QB27)
For a quarterback who threw 21 touchdowns and just six interceptions in 2019, the disrespect of Gardner Mineshew is hard to figure out. Yes, the Jaguars have traded away a lot of their core but many of those guys were on the defensive side of the ball. This sets Jacksonville up to be in plenty of situations where Mineshew will be forced to throw the ball 35+ times a game. He has a rising star in DJ Chark and the Jaguars were able to add Laviska Shenault in the draft. Mineshew has the rushing upside (344 yards in 2019) to lock in a decent floor as well. He is being treated as a mid-tier QB3, so he is virtually free right now.
Jalen Hurts (QB36)
Barring a Carson Wentz injury, Jalen Hurts is unlikely to see the field before 2022. Still, I like him as a dynasty asset, and if you have the roster space to spare he is worth the stash. He landed in a good spot with the Eagles as he should be able to work on some of his shortcomings as a passer but the upside with his rushing ability is what makes him an intriguing prospect. Hurts lit up the NFL combine running a 4.59 40-yard dash after rushing for over 1200 yards last year for Oklahoma. It may take an injury to Wentz for him to be fantasy relevant, but Hurts could be a difference maker if that happens.
