Nineteen quarterbacks are good enough to begin the year as a starter for your Fantasy team. 

But only five can be considered in the top tier. 

Only a handful of changes have been made since our first run of quarterback tiers. No signal-caller has tumbled down the ranks, but there's a lot to dislike about Andrew Luck's situation. If he's still sidelined by Aug. 20 -- three weeks before the Colts' first game -- then he'll probably fall.

The biggest jump was made by Kirk Cousins. His receiving threats (including Jordan Reed, the one who started camp on the PUP list) are better than first believed, and he'll end up flirting with 600 pass attempts. If he looks great this summer -- or if Jameis Winston doesn't -- he'll creep into the top six at the position.
