Week 10 is here, so it’s truly a great day to be great. Today’s goal is to break down the week’s key fantasy football questions facing the quarterback position before producing the group’s specific ranks. Updated rankings throughout the week from myself and the rest of the PFF Fantasy crew can be accessed with PFF+.


Take a bow, Justin Fields

On the one hand, the Bears have lost five of their last six games. On the other, their second-year quarterback has been flashing high-level rushing goodness on an every-week basis.

  • Week 1: 11 carries-28 rush yards-0 rush TD
  • Week 2: 8-20-1
  • Week 3: 8-47-0
  • Week 4: 7-52-0
  • Week 5: 8-47-0
  • Week 6: 12-88-0
  • Week 7: 14-82-1
  • Week 8: 8-60-1
  • Week 9: 15-178-1

The latter performance included some truly breathtaking moments, most notably Fields’ 61-yard scramble to the house that included all sorts of broken tackles along the way.

It’s fair to give Lamar Jackson the nod as the position’s most-lethal rusher. Kings stay kings after all, but just realize Fields has been the most productive quarterback this season when it comes to fantasy points per game from purely rushing.

Fields has ripped off five straight top-12 fantasy finishes and now finds himself threatening to leap into the position’s top-six options ahead of Sunday’s smash spot against the Lions’ 32nd-ranked scoring defense.
