Everyone else is doing them, so why not? It's rankings time!

Important: These initial 2018 QB rankings are only my opinion, not ASL's. And, as a human being who is comfortable with changing his mind without a moment's notice in light of further research, these ranks could move at any time. The rest of my own initial positional rankings -- RBs, WRs, TEs -- will be coming out over the course of the next week. And in the weeks ahead, I'll provide more analysis for my ranks beyond just posting a chart. We've got four long, mostly uneventful months in the NFL ahead of us until the regular season begins. Expect a lot of rankings talk from me between now and then. These ranks assume standard scoring. 

Other early rankings: Top 50 RBs || Top 50 WRs || Top 25 TEs
