Pyromaniac.com breaks down which QBs play better at home and away - even break out how they play in division

Home Heroes & Road Warriors - Quarterbacks

Posted by d-Rx on 08/26/16

SHARE ON

As the years have passed we’ve come to know the ins and outs of who to play at home and who to play on the road. Drew Brees in the Superdome is money in the bank. Yet, how closely have we been paying attention to who to play in divisional match-ups. Who shines when the lights are truly the brightest? Who’s that diamond in the rough who consistently shows up? That’s where we come in. We ran through the last three seasons of the top 23 quarterbacks according to the ADP from Fantasy Football Calculator as of August 18, 2016. From here, we’re going to look into the consistency of these quarterbacks and how well they fared on the road, how they fared at home and how they fared against divisional opponents both home and away. So Let’s begin.

 

 

Road Warriors


First we’re going to hit on the “Road Warriors” and focus our attention on some of the names that stand out as they could be interesting late round or in-season streaming options. This list was a little surprising to me seeing some of the names that sat atop the chart.

 

 

QB Away Chart

- enlarge chart -  

 

 

Tyrod Taylor

Surprisingly Tyrod Taylor sits atop this list with an impressive median of 22 fantasy points. Albeit a small sample size because it was only his first year as a starting quarterback. He still managed to score 18 or more fantasy points in five of his seven away games. Tyrod is a very nice sleeper considering his ADP of the 15th quarterback taken off the board. Yet he was scoring on a per game basis as the 8th best quarterback last year and was averaging more rushing yards per game than Cam Newton. Tyrod may not have shown a high ceiling in his first year but don’t knock him for his consistency on the road.

 


Eli Manning

This one came as a bit of a shocker but Eli ranks as the least consistent road quarterback out of these 23, failing to break 15 fantasy points 17 of his 25 road games in the past 3 years. In 10 of those 17 road games, he also failed to break 10 fantasy points. Even if he does have arguably one of the best wide receivers in the game, it's hard to argue for taking Eli to be a potential Road Warrior for your team.

 


Let’s Get Divisional

Next up is the Divisional Road Warriors. The guys who year after year go into their competition’s building and rightfully claims it as their own. The quarterbacks that have ice in their veins and put fear in their enemies’ eyes. So here we go:

Aaron Rodgers

I mean c’mon, are we shocked? Aaron Rodgers has tamed the Lions and Bears, while shipwrecking the Vikings year in and year out. The poster quarterback of the NFC North. He has scored at least 17 fantasy points in 7 of his 8 divisional road games. Although he doesn't really blow the doors off of his divisional opponents, his stat lines warrant enough to call him the most consistent Divisional Road Warrior.

 


Tom Brady

I bet you're completely surprised seeing Tom Brady ranked so low in this category. Tom Brady has played 9 road games against divisional opponents in the last three years. He has only scored above 20 fantasy points 3 of those 9 games, two of those games were against the Bills. He also failed to score at least 12 fantasy points in five of those nine games. Never scoring above 12 fantasy points against the Jets. I wouldn't push my luck playing Tom Brady against any team other than the Bills in the AFC East.

 


Home Heroes


Now this is what you came here for, the cream of the crop. The quarterbacks that do their best Under Armour impression of protecting their house. The granddaddy of all fantasy football scoring quarterbacks. The Home Heroes.

 


QB at Home Chart

- enlarge chart

 

 

Drew Brees

Death, Taxes and Drew Brees lighting up the Superdome. The three things guaranteed in life. It’s really no surprise that Brees tops this list. Brees has played 24 home games in the last 3 years, he has scored at least 16 fantasy points in 19 of those 24 games. He has scored at least 20 fantasy points in 13 of the 24 games. The most consistent quarterback at home and one of the most consistent quarterbacks in fantasy football you can't go wrong with taking him at his current ADP of the 5th quarterback taken off the board.

 


Joe Flacco

Flacco year to year always seems to get a pass in regards to his performances because he’s a “high volume” passer. But being one of the lower quarterbacks in home game consistency shows we cut him a little too much slack. Flacco has been a 50/50 shot to break 15 fantasy points at home in the past 3 years, with 10 games of each. Even given his ADP of the 23rd quarterback off the board, he really isn't a streamable option with some of the other options that could be available in the middle of the season waiver wire wise.

 


Let’s Get Divisional

Lastly we have the divisional Home Heroes. Here we will take a look at which quarterbacks rise to the top when faced with adversity going against the hated rivals of their divisions. This list in particular got my attention. With guys recently thrown to the dirt like Matt Ryan and Matthew Stafford nearing the top of the list, both guys featured as an undervalued asset in Stagg’s 2016 QB ADP Expectations piece. And fantasy favorites like Tom Brady and Philip Rivers nearing the bottom. From here we’ll dive into a couple of those names.

 

 

QB Home Divisional Chart

 - enlarge chart -

 

 

Matthew Stafford

Matthew Stafford in my opinion is criminally underrated this year. Since the year 2010, Stafford's worst finish has been quarterback 15 out of quarterbacks sub-34 years old, only 3 have finished as a top 12 QB 4 of the last 5 years. To put this into context, 0 have finished as a top 12 quarterback 5 of the last 5 years. Those 3 quarterbacks, Cam Newton, Aaron Rodgers and Matthew Stafford. That's some elite company. A complete bargain at his current ADP of the 16th quarterback off the board according to Fantasy Football Calculator. But let’s hit on his divisional finishes really quick. Stafford has played 8 divisional games at home in the last 3 years. He has finished with at least 16 fantasy points in 6 of those 8 divisional games, leaving him as one of the most consistent Divisional Home Heroes.

 

 

Philip Rivers

Since we had already hit on Tom Brady above, I decided to take a look at Philip Rivers with this outlook. Philip Rivers in the last 3 years has played 9 divisional games at home. The AFC West is arguably the best defensive conference in the AFC which doesn't help Philip’s case but in those 9 games he failed to surpassed 15 fantasy points 7 out of the 9 games. That is pretty crazy considering most see Rivers as a valuable fantasy option and a potential sleeper at quarterback. If you plan on drafting him, I’d look elsewhere during divisional games.

 


What is streaming and how does it work?

Streaming quarterbacks or waiting on a quarterback can be a number of different things in different people’s eyes. To me waiting on a quarterback is waiting to draft a quarterback until at least the double digit rounds. From here I’ll choose a guy with high upside (Allah Tyrod Taylor or Jameis Winston) or someone who has a nice set of weeks to start the season (Allah Derek Carr.) The whole idea of streaming a quarterback isn’t about streaming a different option week in and week out and playing the different match-ups. The idea is to pick a potential gem that hits and works his way into being a valuable starter for you. For me, that guy last year was Andy Dalton. Andy Dalton last year had an ADP of the 17th quarterback off the board but never played like the 17th quarterback, lighting up week after week to start the season. This is what streaming and waiting on a quarterback is all about.

 

 

Although I wouldn't completely throw drafting an early round quarterback out the window. I’m always willing to listen at the right price. Drew Brees in the 5th round has been a very common target for myself. I’m available on Twitter anytime to answer any quarterback questions you may have. Until then, I’ll catch you guys later.
