1 of 3

With the 2015 NFL season less than 3 months away, it’s time to start doing prep work for your fantasy football draft. Over the next few weeks I will be breaking down every position with a primer, rankings, sleepers, busts, and rookies.

I’ve included links to all of my fantasy quarterback articles below. Hopefully they will help you narrow down a few targets for the draft, a couple guys to stay away from, and a possible sleeper or two for the end of your roster. I’ve covered most of the potential quarterbacks in depth which you can access from the links below, but this post is about QB draft strategy.

There may not be another position that causes more strategy arguments than QB. There are those that swear by using a big chunk of their auction money (1st-2nd round pick) on a QB and others who wouldn’t consider a QB until the mid-to-late rounds ($1-$8). I am firmly in the later camp, but I can see the value in both arguments and will try to break down the pros and cons of each below.

Quarterback Rankings

There are two schools of thought when it comes to QBs, you can spend a early pick or 20% of your auction budget on a top 3 QB and know that you are going to get 20+ points every week but miss out on an elite RB/QB or you can wait till seven-eight QBs are off the board while you solidify your RB/WR positions and then take whoever is left among the 2nd-tier QBs. To me waiting on a QB is the better strategy and I will try to explain my four reasons why over the next two pages.
