With the Bears turning to Justin Fields as their starter moving forward and Jimmy Garoppolo out with a calf injury, Week 5 will be the first time all five first-round pick quarterbacks will start at the same time. This actually hasn't been a great start for this heralded rookie class, and if Lance does make the start Sunday against the Cardinals, he would be the highest ranked of them for me this week.

That's mostly due to his rushing ability, to be clear. Lance didn't throw the ball especially well in relief of Garoppolo last week, but he did end up with 20 Fantasy points in just a half of football, and the 41 rushing yards and two-point conversion he picked up with his legs played a big part. Playing in Kyle Shanahan's offense, Lance should have plenty of easy throws and lots of opportunities to run the ball, and it's the latter that really separates him from Fields, who just hasn't been used as a runner much by the Bears so far with only two designed rush attempts in two starts. 

My full rankings for the QB position as of Sunday morning are below. To see the rankings of Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard, and Heath Cummings, make sure you head here. We'll be updating this throughout the week with new notes and as we get news and the rankings get tweaked, so make sure you bookmark the page.
