Young quarterbacks in the NFL are difficult to compare because they are all in different stages of development. Blake Bortles has had years to get things right, but Deshaun Watson has been the starter in Houston for less than four weeks. Jared Goff has started his second year perfectly, and Jacoby Brissett is probably not even staying in Indianapolis. You have to choose the quarterbacks that will fit into your fantasy roster best, and you will find that younger quarterbacks might be the best choices you make going into next week.

Jared Goff

Jared Goff appears to be a superstar in the making, and he has taken a bit of control of the offense in LA.

He is a fine choice for fantasy because he has a solid offense around him featuring Sammy Watkins, Tavon Austin, and Todd Gurley. You might not have many more people to choose from, but Goff is a solid choice.

Blake Bortles

Blake Bortles has not been consistent all year, but he is capable of scoring a lot of points each week. He simply does not perform as he should on a weekly basis, and he might scare you off because you do not want to draft someone who seems so inconsistent. However, you may be a Jags fan who wants to support your club in spirit. If so, you can take the chance on Blake Bortles.

Deshaun Watson

Deshaun Watson has proven that he can break out during any game and score a lot of points.

He had a fantastic game in week four, and he must continue to balance athletic achievement with passing. Accounting for five touchdowns is a great thing for his confidence, but you might see him get stumped by defenses that are complex enough to stop him. Consider the defense before making your choice, and pray that Deandre Hopkins is able to catch all of Watson's passes.

Marcus Mariota

Marcus Mariota simply had a bad week against a very good defense in Houston. Mariota is capable of putting the ball in anyone's hands when needed, but he has not always been given chances to do so. This is partly his fault, and this is partly due to poor blocking. The Titans merely need to get right, and they could do that in just one week.

Marcus has a much larger sample size of experience, but I imagine that Deshaun Watson would look about the same if they played the same number of games.

Consider the pieces

These men have good pieces around them in every instance, and they can use those pieces to score more than normal if they are facing the right defense. Choosing Watson is a gamble if he has a letdown, but Bortles would be even scarier because of his inconsistency. Be wise before you draft this week.
