2017 Fantasy Football Rankings: Championship Game QB Rankings
Scoring: These rankings are based on standard-scoring formats -- one point per 25 passing yards and one point per 10 rushing yards plus four points per passing touchdown and six points per rushing touchdown.
Here are Fantasy Football Quarterback Rankings from Kevin Hanson for the NFC and AFC Championship Games:
1. Tom Brady, New England Patriots
Posting relatively modest numbers in December (240.6 YPG, six TDs and five INTs over five games), Brady threw for 337 yards and three scores against the Titans in the Divisional Round. Things won't be as easy against the Jaguars, but Brady is the clear-cut top quarterback on Sunday despite a hand injury requiring stitches this week. After limiting opponents to one (or zero) passing touchdowns in their first eight games, the Jags have allowed multiple passing scores in five of their past 10 games.

2. Blake Bortles, Jacksonville Jaguars
Bill Belichick has historically taken away an opponent's top offensive weapon, which makes it likely he'll stack the box to limit Leonard Fournette and force Bortles to beat them. Given that, there is a wide range of outcomes for Bortles. Whether it happens due to garbage-time production or the ability to make plays with his legs, Bortles has QB1 upside (and QB4 downside) on this four-game slate and is an excellent DFS tournament play. Bortles finished as a weekly top-10 fantasy quarterback over a five-game stretch from Weeks 12 to 16, but he's managed to complete just 26-of-49 combined for 301 yards and two touchdowns in the team's two playoff wins.
3. Case Keenum, Minnesota Vikings
Soon to parlay his 2017 success into a big free-agent contract, Keenum has made the most of his opportunity this season. He has thrown for 3,547 yards, 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions since taking over for Sam Bradford in Week 2. In terms of home-road splits, Keenum has been consistent: 100.1 rating, 8.06 Y/A, eight TDs at home and two INTs compared to 96.8 rating, 7.27 Y/A, 14 TDs and five INTs on the road.
4. Nick Foles, Philadelphia Eagles
Regardless of what Doug Pederson says, the team's playoff hopes suffered a huge blow when Carson Wentz tore his ACL. As we saw last week, the Eagles will likely limit the number of pass attempts for Foles and instead rely heavily on their ground game provided the game stays close. A three-point home underdog, the Eagles have the lowest projected total of the weekend.
