This offseason has felt like an especially long one, but the 2020 fantasy football season is finally upon us! That means it's time to get your team name set and start preparing for your 2020 fantasy football draft.

After Lamar Jackson put up an absurd fantasy season in 2019, people are paying plenty of attention to quarterbacks this season. With that in mind, here are the 12 best quarterbacks for fantasy football in 2020, taken from The Duel's 2020 fantasy football rankings.

Fantasy Football Quarterback Rankings

12. Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers

Aaron Rodgers finished ninth at the position in fantasy scoring in 2019, but banking on a repeat performance may not be wise. Davante Adams remains his only real receiving threat, and Rodgers posted his second-lowest passer rating since 2008 last year.

11. Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints

10. Tom Brady, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

9. Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions

8. Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons

7. Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills

6. Kyler Murray, Arizona Cardinals

Kyler Murray finished as the QB8 in fantasy football, and he's got a good chance at climbing the ranks in 2020. He's not a rookie any more, with a full year under his belt in Kliff Kingsbury's offense, and now the Cards have added one of the game's best wide receivers in DeAndre Hopkins.

5. Deshaun Watson, Houston Texans

4. Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks

3. Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys

2. Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens

1. Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs

He may not have matched Lamar Jackson's output in 2019, but Patrick Mahomes is the more proven passer in the superior offense, and that's enough to give him the edge in 2020. He may not be likely to repeat the 50-TD, 5,000-yard season he had in 2018, but that kind of upside is hard to ignore.
