Who Is the Top Rookie QB for 2019?

The Footballguys staff gives their opinions on which quarterback has the most value this season

Historically, it can be difficult to find a rookie quarterback worthy of rostering in a re-draft league. But that is starting to change as more NFL franchises are showing a willingness to put young signal-callers onto the field. Let's see if this continues in 2019.

In a normal, start-one-quarterback league, is there a rookie quarterback who has notable value for the 2019 season? What about in start-two-quarterbacks leagues?

As we discussed in the Arizona Cardinals roundtable last week, Kyler Murray will be viewed by the consensus as a relevant fantasy quarterback this year. A good portion of our own staff believes he has a top-10 floor and top-5 ceiling. I'm not willing to endorse that view, but he's going to be drafted as a starting quarterback in most redraft leagues. So if you're not a fan, you need to convince yourself to punt at his projected average draft position.

In two-quarterback or superflex leagues, any quarterback with a starting job is worthy of consideration, which means Dwayne Haskins is absolutely in play, with Drew Lock and Daniel Jones considerations off waivers during the season. I think Washington will consider it a disappointment if Haskins doesn't win the job in the preseason, and even if he doesn't, it's impossible to think Case Keenum will play well enough to keep Haskins off the field for long.
