Sometimes it’s just entertaining to dive inside the numbers and evaluate the good, bad and ugly of the NFL season. In the next 24 hours, I’ll dole out my Week 16 rankings and picks. For the moment, I’m pausing to review the Quarterback position and shake out quarterbacks scored on a weekly basis. Forget about the overall fantasy point total. That’s all fine and good to compare to our preseason rankings.

Where’s the value on a week-to-week basis?
