Quarterback Rankings-Week 8 Fantasy Football Who to Start

In all our positional rankings, there was only one unanimous #1. With Aaron Rodgers recent play and matchup against Jacksonville, he’s as close to a lock as there is this week. Beyond locking him in at the top, however, there’s plenty of intrigue at the position with RG3, Matt Ryan, and Carson Palmer being three quarterbacks where the three rankings differ dramatically.

As usual, I (ZT) was joined in the rankings by Steve Copps (SC) and Jeffrey Littrell (JL) who are contributors for FantasyCPR. We ranked our top 25 with NR (not ranked) counting for 30 for averaging purposes.
