It’s too late in the season for a four-team goodbye, right? Well, we have one more left. Passing quarterbacks will continue to be a big deal as we enter the fantasy football playoffs, but this will be the last crucial week with no injury-related absences. Our Week 14 Fantasy QB Rankings will help you identify the best players and sleepers so you can end your regular season on a high note.

Jalen Hurts, Carson Wentz, Mac Jones and Tua Tagovailoa are all getting PTO this week, so that removes an elite fantasy stud and some popular streamers from the board. However, we got Cam Newton (against the Falcons), Ryan Tannehill (against the Jaguars), Aaron Rodgers (against the Bears) and Baker Mayfield (against the Ravens).

Tom Brady (against Bills) is in for a tough matchup, so it’s worth noting that we’ve got him lower than usual, but he’ll still be in most of the starting lineups. Matthew Stafford (@ Cardinals) has had his troubles recently and has a tough showdown this week, but we also have him as a low-end QB1.

Now, let’s dive into what most people look for in quarterback rankings: quarterbacks in the start or sit bubble. Those with favorable matchups are Taysom Hill (@ Jets), Taylor Heinicke (vs. Cowboys), Teddy Bridgewater (vs. Lions), and Cam Newton (vs. Falcons). You might think Newton is too short, and could obviously break his rankings, but we saw Newton’s downside a couple of weeks ago, so he’s far from a safe option. However, those of you who are ceiling chasers will likely choose to start with any of the other fringe headlines.

Callers on the edge with overly worrisome matchups include Matt Ryan (@ Panthers), Jimmy Garoppolo (@ Bengals) and even Ryan Tannehill (vs. Jaguars). The top two players mentioned facing the top seven defenses against fantasy quarterbacks heading into Week 13.

As for Tannehill, he will face a Jacksonville defense that has mostly limited quarterbacks, and based on his game of late, he’s hard to trust. Dontrell Hilliard and D’Onta Foreman should see heavy workloads, and Tannehill’s best pass receiver would be a hit Julio Jones. Trevor Lawrence (@ Titans) has the second-friendliest matchup with QB, but can you trust him against the Titans’ passing race fresh off a goodbye? It would cost us a lot to do it.

Once again, this is the last week of vacation and we still have many options to spend the week. Whether you prefer dual threat guys with traditionally higher floors (Hill, Newton) or boom or bust guys (Heinicke, Ryan), you should be able to walk in this week feeling confident in your QB.

Note: We’ll update these quarterback rankings throughout the week, so check back for the latest player movement and analysis.
