The quarterback position continues to be very deep for fantasy teams. It might be the deepest every for fantasy teams this season with so many guys capable of posting top-five scoring numbers. Either way, 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 Tony Romo, but getting an elite option will cost you a pick in the first three or four rounds of your draft. And with the way things played out the few seasons, getting one of those top guys isn't a bad idea these days for fantasy teams. We are in a pass-first NFL.
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.
