For fantasy football leagues who play their championship in Week 18, it always creates challenges as teams will rest some of their key players if they have a playoff spot locked up. At quarterback, that is certainly the case as Lamar Jackson, Brock Purdy, and Patrick Mahomes are all being rested this week.

The good news though, is that there are a number of quarterbacks who will still be playing (and likely playing the entire game) in must-win games for their teams. These are four quarterbacks that need to be in fantasy football lineups in Week 18.

4 must-start quarterbacks in Week 18 for fantasy football

Dak Prescott (vs. Washington Commanders)

The Dallas Cowboys have found themselves in position to win the NFC East and with a win over the Washington Commanders they will do just that. This is good news for any fantasy football managers that have Dak Prescott on their roster.

After a disappointing game against the Buffalo Bills, Prescott has bounced back over the past two weeks and has four passing touchdowns to one interception while averaging almost 300 passing yards per game. This week, Prescott gets a Commanders' defense that is allowing the second most passing yards per game and a league leading 35 passing touchdowns.

In a critical game, the Cowboys are going to need a big game from Dak Prescott and he should have a great chance to be the highest scoring quarterback this week.
