Who, When, and Where for Quarterbacks

The selection of quarterback in almost all fantasy football drafts seems to determine how the rest of the cards fall, and everyone always seems to have far different ideas on how they want to go about it. No matter how much expert insist that you wait and try to drive home the value in finding value, there is always that guy(s) who starts the run on quarterbacks — in round one.

I cannot stress enough how much you should avoid taking up this agenda. After all, the old saying goes, “reach early and lose”. The No. 1 quarterback on my top 20 power rankings is Green Bay Packers signal caller, Aaron Rodgers. A close second? Andrew Luck. I give the edge to Rodgers for his superior decision making and protection of the football. Even still though, his value is not within round one.

Rodgers ADP (average draft position) is actually 22 overall, or the end of round two in a 12 man league — and that is his appropriate value. The same goes for Andrew Luck (ADP 21). But what happens if you miss on these two guys at any rate?

From quarterback No. 3 (Russell Wilson) to quarterback No. 7 (Drew Brees) there is talent that will go in rounds four and five. After that, in round six, is where you’ll want to keep an eye out.

As we mentioned before, if you follow the back-to-back wide receiver in rounds one and two followed by the back-to-back running backs in rounds three and four, then a tight end in round five, round six (or later) is where you’ll take your QB.

Remaining on the board is likely Philip Rivers and Tony Romo, but that’s not where my attention is focused. I’m looking at two other names futher down the board that will allow me to build my bench — Ryan Tannehill and Matthew Stafford.

Believe it or not, Tannehill was a top 10 QB in 2014, and Stafford always has the potential and upside to put up big numbers. Drafting these guys close to round 10 will allow you to add depth to your bench while still landing a solid signal caller.

Don’t believe me?
