Who Will Be the Top Rookie QB in 2021?

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

Grabbing a solid young quarterback in a dynasty league can solidify that position for a decade or more. We asked the staff about their favorite dynasty target.

I love Will Grier's potential, and Cam Newton can't have too many good years left. But Grier's a longshot given his draft position, so he'll be my No. 2 choice behind Dwayne Haskins. I expect Haskins will win the starting job this year, and perform well enough to keep it for the majority of his rookie contract.

So much will change between now and then. Regimes will fall and new ones will rise. It’s doubtful that two-thirds of these quarterbacks will be playing for the same coach or general manager that drafted them. Some of these highly drafted quarterbacks will be on the career backup track by that time. There are only two rookie quarterbacks that are both likely to still be with the decision makers that drafted them and potentially be much more valuable than where they were drafted. One of those quarterbacks is Patriots’ Jarrett Stidham. There is arguably not a better landing spot for a quarterback’s development than behind Tom Brady. Stidham has areas of his game that need major improvement, but his throwing mechanics are sound and won’t need a tremendous amount of tweaking. He has more than adequate athleticism and superb arm strength as well. What he will need help developing are his processing and decision-making. That is tough to project, but if any team can help him in those areas, this is the one that can do it.
