Just like your NFL team, your Fantasy Team will depend heavily on its Quarterback. Because the league focus on the pass so much the pool for quarterbacks is a little deeper than it was in the old days. That said there is a big drop off from the top 5 elite passers and the second tier of signal callers.
Position Draft Strategy
If you are going to build your team around the Quarterback then you will want to get one of the elite passers. But this strategy depends heavily on the size of your league and your teams draft position. If you are drafting in the top half of the first round, one of the top 5 quarterbacks should be there waiting for you. If you are drafting in the bottom half, you may want to consider trying to find value at QB in the 3rd or 4th round.
2014 Fantasy Football Rankings Top 10 Quarterbacks
10. Tom Brady, New England Patriots
Tom Brady has a way of making those around him better. That is what he must do this season with a young group of receivers. The return of Rob Gronkowski should help but beyond the oft injured tight end all of Brady’s targets are unproven commodities.
9. Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons
Julio Jones is healthy and ready to go but with the departure of Tony Gonzales and the aging of Roddy White, Matt Ryan’s choices are slim. Steven Jackson will help with receiving out of the back field but the Falcons will need some of their younger players to step up if they are going to put up big numbers through the air.
