Quarterback is one of those positions in dynasty where the dynamic has changed over the years. With rules to protect the QB on the books in the last 10 years, the life cycle of the average QB has been extended. What does that mean? Keep your old QBs. When it comes to veteran production, I like to look at their last three years and project out there next three for comparison. I also look at age and DMX score to round out my thinking. Below are my projections and ranking for the top 30 veteran dynasty quarterbacks. These projections take into account standard fantasy production and projects out three years.

The main point here is this…old QBs still produce and there are many of them on this list because there is no reason many of them won’t play deep into their late thirty’s. Matt Ryan, for example, is young comparatively at 32 years old. He can definitely maintain the level of production he achieved last year until he’s 35. While Drew Brees, Philip Rivers, Tom Brady and Carson Palmer are  not high on this list, they are still on this list! I would not get rid of them for a rookie QB any time soon.
