The quarterback position continues to be very deep for fantasy teams. And as last year showed, having a top quarterback can be a big-time difference maker for fantasy teams. Teams that had Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers made a lot of noise last season as both players posted a ton of points.
You can still wait on a quarterback and get a quality option such as Eli Manning, but getting an elite, top-five option will cost you a pick in the first three or four rounds of your draft. And with the way things played out last season, getting one of those top guys isn't a bad idea these days for fantasy teams.
But you will also want to know your scoring system. Every league is different. Some leagues favor quarterbacks a little more while others try to devalue the position some by making passing touchdowns worth less as well as penalizing more for interceptions. So you'll want to know your scoring inside and out before deciding when to take a quarterback.
