Now, let's dive in.



No real surprises here in the top five priced quarterbacks with Mahomes, Hurts, and Allen leading the way. With Joe Burrow not getting the SuperStar status to start the season his cards approach the value of the other three even though he projects slightly lower than them. The last guy to show up on this list is Justin Fields who had a breakout season last year and has some big shoes to fill this year if he expects to finish in the top five scoring quarterbacks.

Now, here are the top 5 values at the Quarterback position based on their price throughout the three lower TIERS and the projected points for week 1.

  1. Matthew Stafford
  2. Mac Jones
  3. Bryce Young
  4. Russell Wilson
  5. Desmond Ridder

Running Backs

We see the non-SuperStar status really affects card values starting here at the running back position as the two topped-priced running backs at this point are non-superstars in Jacobs, Robinson, and Pollard.

Now, here are the top 5 values at the Running Backs based on their price throughout the three lower TIERS and the projected points for week 1. *Must have a projection of higher than 10 points.

  1. Samaje Perine
  2. Jamaal Williams
  3. James Conner
  4. Cam Akers
  5. Saquon Barkley

Wide Receivers

Depending on which tier you look at the top five priced wide receivers change quite a bit. For this purpose, we use the RARE tier and you can see some familiar names listed at the top of this list. A few that just missed out on it and actually do end up in the top five priced wide receivers depending on the rarity tier are Garrett Wilson and Jaylen Waddle.  Here are the top 5 values heading into Week 1:

  1. DJ Moore
  2. Calvin Ridley
  3. Chris Olave
  4. Keenan Allen
