As we gear up to the start of the NFL season, Football Absurdity is going to bring you a comprehensive breakdown of every notable player that will be available in fantasy football drafts. When you don’t see us talking about Christine Michael or Mike Davis, don’t get mad at us for neglecting your favorite sleeper. Get mad at yourself for having bad taste in football players. We are only focusing on the top-rated players in standard scoring and points per game leagues.
With my player profiles, I’ve only decided to go back to look at their fantasy scoring for three years. I could show you lists from earlier, but most of the guys at the top are no longer in the league anymore. I’ve also added a chart for their usage over that time span. We will try to determine, based on those two factors, where the best quarterback value lies.
Dak Prescott ADP and AAV
Standard: 17th among QBs, 131st overall
PPR: 13th among QBs, 110th overall
Dak Prescott Average Auction Value (AAV) $200 Budget: $8
|Rank||Total Points||PPG Rank||PPG|
Overview: A top-10 fantasy QB for all three seasons of his career, Dak gets to spend his first full season with breakout Amari Cooper. 2019 will find Prescott heading his most solid Cowboy’s offense, with their dynamic center returning after missing all of 2018. All signs point towards Dak being able to top his career highs.
Strategy: Our Dak Prescott Auction Value ($200 Budget): $3
Prescott might be the most under-valued QB on the board. Going outside the top 12 is unheard of for a QB who has been a QB1 every year and faces no setbacks. We definitely place Dak at the top of our tier 2 of QBs, and would be shocked if he doesn’t have flashes of being a QB6 or better
Best Case Scenario: Dak continues to grow and finishes in the top half of the first 12 QBs.
Worst Case Scenario: Dak decides his true passion is raising cattle and leaves the team in week 13. He still finishes as a top 15 QB.
