    Having an elite QB in a dynasty can help push you over the top for a Championship run. What QBs are cheaper buys who can ascend? Let's look at the QB tiers below!


    After all the injuries this year to the QB position, taking a reset and looking at the state of the position and QB tiers to start the offseason is hugely important. Backup QBs who can keep teams in games will be hot commodities to teams with poor situations. What players are you comfortable rolling with as your top QB? Let's dive into the QB tiers with the championship caliber players.

    Championship caliber QBs

    1. Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills

    2. Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs

    3. Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles

    There are just three of the "Championship caliber QBs" at the top of the QB tiers, and it's pretty chalky. Josh Allen, Patrick Mahomes, and Jalen Hurts. Allen is the top dog to me, as he's finished the first three of the last four years, and the second the other year. He should be the top redraft QB and is still just 27 years old. Even if Stefon Diggs leaves, the Bills will find someone to be Allen's new top dog.

    Mahomes and Hurts have some questions for them. Mahomes is coming off his worst season as a full-time starter and was still QB8, despite scoring 66% of the points he scored in 2022. Expect the Chiefs to get him a WR to help stretch the field. Hurts "fell off" to QB6 from Week 10 on after being QB2 up until Week 9. The tush push rule changing would likely hurt his scoring, but still in the top tier.

    Elite Tier

    4. C.J. Stroud, Houston Texans

    5. Joe Burrow, Cincinnati Bengals

    6. Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens

    7. Justin Herbert, Los Angeles Chargers

    8. Kyler Murray, Arizona Cardinals

    This group of five isn't far off the top three, just a little less consistently great or a slightly lower overall ceiling. All five are capable of putting up QB1 overall numbers in a given year. C.J. Stroud at the top of the elite tier might be a hot take, but he's the closest to championship caliber for me. If he can repeat and grow next year, even if his coordinator leaves for a head coaching job, he'll belong in the top tier.

    Joe Burrow and Justin Herbert are similar QBs for the sake of this QB tiers exercise. Burrow is higher due to having an elite pass catcher to pair with long-term and has been better early in his career. Herbert continues to show flashes but his weapons are aging and has a big question at coach, and therefore system. Both are fantastic options that have no lingering injury concerns for 2024.

    Lamar Jackson is an interesting case with a huge step forward in 2023, but will his coordinator get a top job? He still runs a ton and just threw more passes (457 attempts) than ever before. Kyler Murray might be high for some but his last two games started to look like vintage Murray, and now he's likely to get a top rookie WR to pair with for a long time. One of my favorite buys for managers.

    Backend QB1 Tier

    9. Anthony Richardson, Indianapolis Colts

    10. Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys

    11. Brock Purdy, San Francisco 49ers

    12. Trevor Lawrence, Jacksonville Jaguars

    13. Jordan Love, Green Bay Packers

    14. Tua Tagovailoa, Miami Dolphins

    Let's get into what likely has a controversial few QBs in different spots and a glaring omission here in the QB tiers. Anthony Richardson kicks the tier off and is the likeliest to make a leap. The Colts' young QB flashed elite upside, but he needs to be healthier in 2024 or he'll get the injury-prone label and will get passed up as an elite fantasy QB in dynasty, as availability matters so much in this game.

    Next up in the QB tiers discussion, is Dak Prescott, who was on fire down the stretch. The Cowboys will figure out their run game, but clearly, this is their best way to win and they seem likely to add WR help. Brock Purdy is next, and this might feel high, but he just had one of the most efficient seasons of all time. Still just 24 years old and finishing his first season as the starter, he belongs here.

    Trevor Lawrence needs his own paragraph. He's been all over the place, from can't-miss prospect to bust after a season. Now in two full seasons with Doug Pederson, he looks like a fine QB but not a difference-maker for fantasy. 56.4% of the Jaguars TDs came via the air. This is lower than the 60.6% league average in 2022 and 60.9% Jacksonville hit in 2022. This needs to grow for him to take the leap.

    Jordan Love is a stud and it looks like the Packers might've done it again. He's been up and down but it's just his first season as a starter with a young WR and TE room. Watch out in 2024 for him to rise up. Tua Tagovailoa is a tough one to place in the QB tiers, as he's been elite at times but also struggles when his top WRs miss time. Get him a TE outlet this offseason, his own George Kittle, to help underneath.

    Great QB2s

    15. Justin Fields, Chicago Bears

    16. Kirk Cousins, Minnesota Vikings (UFA)

    17. Bryce Young, Carolina Panthers

    18. Matthew Stafford, Los Angeles Rams

    19. Jared Goff, Detroit Lions

    20. Deshaun Watson, Cleveland Browns

    The Bears have a choice to make, and that uncertainty has Fields down in the QB2 tier for me. When he plays he's a QB1 but he takes too many sacks (12.4% rate) to be a lock to start if he's traded. No active QB is close, as the next starting QB in sack rate is Watson at 9.2%. With how limited the passing offense already is, he just holds the ball and doesn't anticipate his throws well enough.

    Cousins, Stafford, and Goff are all similar players. Cousins is coming off the Achilles injury but will sign in a good situation for himself to win, as he's stated money isn't his primary motivation. Stafford just needs to confirm he's returning. As long as the Rams don't win a title I think that's likely. Goff is limited but has one of the best situations in football and his deal looks good when compared to recent QB contracts.

    Bryce Young this high is more about going first overall and being put into a crap situation. He needs a good offensive mind and WRs who can get open better and he'll settle into being a solid starter, but will likely not be elite due to height limitations. Watson just doesn't look quite right yet, but his contract locks him in as a starter for the next couple of seasons at minimum, can he climb the QB tiers?

    Risky QB2s

    21. Geno Smith, Seattle Seahawks

    22. Will Levis, Tennessee Titans

    23. Baker Mayfield, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (UFA)

    24. Derek Carr, New Orleans Saints

    25. Aaron Rodgers, New York Jets

    26. Daniel Jones, New York Giants

    27. Kenny Pickett, Pittsburgh Steelers

    28. Russell Wilson, Denver Broncos

    Some of these guys are fine QB2s on a roster, but all face some level of question marks. Geno Smith is cuttable but feels like a near lock to be back. Levis deserves a shot to start but is a risk with the Titans' offense. Mayfield hopefully signs a new deal to stay in Tampa Bay. Carr and Rodgers are both under contract and seem like a lock to start in 2024 for the Saints and Jets.

    The riskiest options are Jones, Pickett, and Wilson. Wilson is likely to get another shot if he gets cut this offseason, and hopefully with a good situation around him. Jones's contract keeps him there but he's likely to see competition in 2024 from a rookie or free agent. Pickett is being pushed as the starter next year but will have a veteran in place to compete with him, but can also move up the QB tiers.

    If in a true spot to compete, targeting Smith or Rodgers feels like the best option for 2024 teams. Both are in great situations in 2024 and could push for top-12 finishes. Levis and Pickett are targets in this tier for a rebuild. Levis is still an unknown as an NFL QB who will have an opportunity to grow this offseason. Pickett has one full game without former OC Matt Canada and had a strong performance.

    Stashes and Bridge QBs

    29. Sam Howell, Washington Commanders

    30. Jimmy Garoppolo, Las Vegas Raiders

    31. Jake Browning, Cincinnati Bengals (UFA)

    32. Aidan O'Connell, Las Vegas Raiders

    33. Hendon Hooker, Detroit Lions

    34. Trey Lance, Dallas Cowboys

    35. Joe Flacco, Cleveland Browns (UFA)

    36. Jacoby Brissett, Washington Commanders (UFA)

    37. Jarrett Stidham, Denver Broncos

    38. Drew Lock, Seattle Seahawks (UFA)

    39. Gardner Minshew, Indianapolis Colts (UFA)

    40. Mac Jones, New England Patriots

    Take your pick from this section of the QB tiers who you like most. These guys may be starters to start 2024 or might be taxi stashes to hope to take over in the future. Garoppolo and Stidham feel most likely to be bridge guys in 2024 and Hooker and Lance are the top stashes. Hooker is in a great spot behind Goff on a loaded Lions team, while Lance is a former top pick who's yet to truly get his shot somewhere.
