NFL Fantasy Rankings: Top 10 Sleepers at Quarterback

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

Our NFL Fantasy Rankings are back again as we take a look at the Top 10 sleepers at quarterback in 2014. Here is a full breakdown of QBs you’ll want to target in the later rounds of your draft.

NOTE: Johnny Football alert! As we know, everyone loves the Manziel Mania, even with the Browns’ signing of Rex Grossman!

 

10

Joe Flacco

QB, Baltimore Ravens

Flacco doesn’t have a huge history of putting up the big numbers, but the addition of Steve Smith Sr. could work wonders. Don’t look now, but I wouldn’t be shocked if Flacco has a career year.
9

Eli Manning

QB, New York Giants

Just because he’s a well-known name in the DirecTV world doesn’t mean people love him in Fantasy Football. Don’t sleep on Manning, as he could be a very valuable backup this season.
8

Jake Locker

QB, Tennessee Titans

Locker has another offseason under his belt, and will be looking to take a big step forward this year. I expect the improved offensive line to play a big role in the offense’s success this year.
7

Ryan Fitzpatrick

QB, Houston Texans

He’s going to get the snaps this year, Fitzpatrick just has to prove he can stay turnover-free. If he didn’t have the interception issue, he’d be ranked near the top of this list.
6

Geno Smith

QB, New York Jets

Smith’s 2013 wasn’t impressive, but very few rookies thrive in their first year as a starter. I expect Smith to be much improved this year. Watch Eric Decker as a good combo in a tough spot this year.
5

Alex Smith

QB, Kansas City Chiefs

Smith is in the “sleeper” category due to his sub-par stat-sheets. If you’re in a pinch and need a QB, Smith has the potential to come through for you with guys like Jamaal Charles reeling in passes from the backfield, potentially breaking a big play.
4

Matt Schaub

QB, Oakland Raiders

Schaub isn’t a bad quarterback – let’s not forget what he did a few years back. Greg Little and James Jones will prove to be big targets in 2014.
3

Josh McCown

QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

McCown can sling it, and if he gets a healthy 16 games in this season, his stat lines will be eye-popping week after week. Grab him when you feel comfortable, because it’ll pay off if all goes as planned in Tampa Bay.
2

Carson Palmer

QB, Arizona Cardinals

Palmer shouldn’t scare you this year, no matter what some “experts” say. He has the tools and balanced scheme in Arizona…expect a potentially breakout year for the 34-year-old QB.
1

Johnny Manziel

QB, Cleveland Browns

It’s Johnny Football…do we need an explanation here?
