The quarterback position in your NFL fantasy team is something you should give a lot of thought to as many owners leave it far too late to draft one of the top stars in the league and are then forced to settle for one of the players who are outside the top grade in the sport. Here are three QBs who are likely to be right at the top end of the scoring charts in the 2018 season.
Since becoming their number one starting quarterback in 2015, Kirk Cousins has excelled for the Washington Redskins in the NFC East, where he has thrown for over 4,000 yards in each of his three seasons. Unfortunately for Cousins, he has not had players around him to really push for a run towards the Super Bowl. Last March, Cousins signed a huge contract with the Minnesota Vikings, which could be great business for both parties. The 29-year-old will have Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen to throw to next season, amongst other stars, therefore he could be set for his best year yet which can only be good for NFL owners who draft the Michigan State graduate. The Vikings will be many people’s pick to win the Super Bowl this season where they are +1400 in the ante-post market; however, if you are looking to back Minnesota, it may be worth looking out for the best free bets from Timeform, who have reviewed all the leading offers available in sports betting.
If you are looking for a quarterback who has the potential to throw for over 5,000 yards in 2018, Matthew Stafford could be your man. The Detroit Lions QB scored 29 touchdowns last season and recorded 4,446 passing yards. Stafford very rarely has a quiet week in the NFL; therefore, he should consistently be one of the leading players in his position across the season. Unlike Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers, you won’t need to draft Stafford too early; you can concentrate on selection the leading running backs and wide receivers in the opening rounds of your draft.
LA Rams quarterback Jared Goff was the number one overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft and is now justifying the confidence shown in him by his franchise. After a shaky start in early stages of his NFL career, Goff has recovered to look assured and he is only going to get better as he has everything needed to be a top quarterback in the league. The Rams man scored 28 touchdowns in 2017 in what was his first full season but that should be bettered this time around. Under head coach Sean McVay, it would be no surprise to see the Rams in contention for the Super Bowl once again in the new campaign. They have a young roster who have gelled well together and with some good additions during the off-season, Goff and his offence can really ignite the league in 2018.
