How much is Josh Gordon worth to a fantasy owner? If you asked that question today, you would get answers ranging from “nothing at all because he’s suspended” to “anything it takes” from those who are hoping his suspension gets overturned. So where is the truth?

Week 2 QB Rankings, Led by Andrew Luck

Andrew Luck headlines our quarterback rankings for Week 2. After a strong showing against the Broncos in Week 1, Luck and the Colts will host the Eagles in Week 2. Luck posted numbers good enough to make him QB3 in Week 1, and the Eagles’ defense looked awfully porous against the Jaguars last week. This week there is a convergence of factors that has Andrew Luck’s stock on the rise.

Wrong. Dead wrong.

We’ve all been there. We all know that feeling in the pit of our stomachs after we realize just how wrong we were. And you are all going to feel that way about two quarterbacks this season. There are at least two quarterbacks you were wrong about in your 2QB and Superflex drafts this year.

Consider this planting my flag, making my bold prediction, or however you want to term it. This article is how I pin myself to two bold predictions and see whether the season proves me right.

So let’s get on to it, who are the two quarterbacks you were wrong about in 2014?

It’s the most wonderful time of the year: kickoff of the NFL season, of course! The 2QB team here at FakePigskin will be bringing you weekly quarterback rankings all season, so that you have a baseline for deciding which second- and third-string quarterbacks to start each week. This is our first of the year, with Week 1 QB rankings for 2QB leagues.

In our minds, that’s a necessary resource for owners in 2QB and Superflex leagues, because the major sites and major writers tend to only rank the top 15 or top 20 quarterbacks. But those of us in deep superflex leagues know how important it is to know even the worst of the starting quarterbacks.

Fantasy Football Auction Values – 2QB

The NFL preseason reminds me of one thing: the regular season is not here just yet. But it is so close! And so I have just a few days left to prepare for my favorite draft style: auction drafts. Fantasy football auction drafts are incredibly intense and can be quite complicated. With all of the values and overbids that happen, it is crucial to have a rankings sheet of your auction prices. So that’s why I have posted here a full cheat sheet of all auction values for the 2QB leagues.

The cheat sheet is a pdf version of the rankings that has the top 200 as well as positional rankings and auction values. As with any rankings, minor adjustments will be necessary as we get closer to Week 1. If you have any questions or comments feel free to message me on Twitter @BergerTwoQBs. But enough intro. Here are your 2014 two quarterback fantasy football auction values!

5 Quarterback Steals for 2014 – Quarterback Ranking Values

Life is unfair. If you haven’t caught onto that, you are probably new to fantasy football. It’s one of the reasons why we love, and at times hate, the game. The random and most obscure things will affect games, and will affect our opinions of players. We start to think of a player as an inaccurate passer or a bad teammate, both of which may have very little to do with whether they are a good fantasy quarterback. All that we should really be caring about is whether this QB does just enough to get the fantasy points. It doesn’t matter how pretty it looks. We just want to have the dollar-bargain quarterback steal for this season.

What I like to do is write about the quarterbacks that are being given the cold shoulder according to their current ADP. Salvatore Stefanile (@2QBFFB) and @curacaobleu did a great job compiling the latest average draft position of the top 37 quarterbacks in redraft leagues. I am very grateful for their hard work, and highly recommend you follow both of them. With these latest ADPs, I then compare the numbers to all 37 quarterbacks’ points per game from last year who played significant time. The ones that come up with too much of a drop are represented here on this list, with some factoring into my own quarterback rankings for 2014 as well.

So here are the 5 quarterback steals that are currently out there in your league.
