Who Is the Top Quarterback on a New Team?

The Footballguys staff discuss veteran quarterbacks who changed teams over the offseason

Who is your top quarterback on a different team in 2020? Are you targeting this player in a normal redraft league? Do you think they might be underrated by most of the fantasy community?

Chad Parsons

Tom Brady is the low-hanging fruit. His weapons eroded quickly in New England with Rob Gronkowski gone in 2019 and no tangible outside target to soften a defense. Fast-forward to 2020 and Brady has Gronkowski back in Tampa Bay, but without the pressure to be an impact option. Tampa Bay has an all-star cast with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin at receiver, O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate joining Gronkowski at tight end, and even promising upside from ancillary receivers like Justin Watson, Scott Miller, and rookie Tyler Johnson depending on which develops into the main contributor from the trio, if any. Annually, I wait on the quarterback position in all formats, and seeing Brady outside the top-15 or so quarterbacks in post-NFL Draft data has him firmly on my target radar.

Jason Wood

I'm with Chad, I don't know how you pick someone other than Brady. He's QB12 in current industry consensus, and no other quarterback on a new team cracks the top 20. Your other options are essentially Philip Rivers, Teddy Bridgewater, and Nick Foles. I won't reiterate Chad's points on Brady but will concur with his views. He's got a stellar supporting cast and an offensive-minded coach willing to let the offense flow through Brady's mind.
