2014 fantasy football | Final quarterback projections for Week 1

Hello and good luck in Week 1.

These rankings aren’t perfect. If they say Nick Foles is going to throw for 252.3 yards and 1.9 TDs, it’s not exact. The referees aren’t going to go out there and cut a touchdown into 10ths for him. The numbers are used to put players in the right order. They are based on offense vs. defense averages. Then I get in there and mess around with the numbers if things don’t look right.

Obviously, I’ve introduced a number of errors into this thing. Derek Carr was set to score too many points and Cam Newton’s questionability means he might not run it on the goal line. So I fiddled with their stats to drop them in the rankings. I also juiced up Tony Romo’s and Matt Ryan’s stats a bit. They are both underdogs, playing at home who will probably have to throw a lot this week.

All projections: QB | RB | WR | TE | FLEX | K | DEF

PPR projections: RB | WR | TE | FLEX
