2014 QB Rankings

NFL Fantasy

Ready to dominate?

Falling asleep through another Mid-Summer Classic is a brutal reminder that it has been too long without football.  But alas my friends, Opening Kickoff is in exactly 7 weeks!!  More importantly for you, that means your fantasy draft is right around the corner!  Like always, we’ve got you covered.

We’ll start with the rulers of the NFL roost: The Quarterbacks (if for no other reason than to post an egregious Johnny Football partying picture – so many to choose from).

A few thoughts:

  • If you can score one of the Top 3 QB’s in the fourth round, then jump all over that.  If they are gone at that point (likely), then adopt a Late Round QB strategy.  Dalton (QB17), Smith (QB20) and Palmer (QB23) are all capable of producing a top twelve performance any given week.  You could roster two or three of these types and play the weekly match-up game (don’t worry, we’ll help you with that too).
  • Ginger likes his QBs armed with veteran savvy (Cutler-5, Brady-6, Newton-7) while I tend to give the edge to young upside (Luck-5, Foles-6, Kaepernick-7).  I think Cam could be a nice value play this year; I think he is being discounted too much for his perceived loss of weapons (a 35 year old Steve Smith and a huh-hums Brandon LaFell & Ted Ginn).
  • We don’t have much faith in last years QB crop, Geno Smith (QB26) & EJ Manual (QB27), but if the light goes on for one of these guys they could make for a nice late round flier.  Keep an eye on both during the preseason.  For what it’s worth, we do like Geno’s chances of winning the “QB battle” with Mike Vick.
  • Oh right……………..
