QBs in 2010

I read the NY Post this weekend. On Saturday they do Super Fantasy Saturday  (so original). They didn’t say anything we didn’t already now. Basically they rambled on about how in the first two round it is no longer standard of practice to draft two RBs and that WRs may be the way to go. I have already written extensively about that very topic. It did however bring up an interesting thought – that of QBs. Brees and Rodgers will be gone by round 3. Perhaps by someone like myself that has a hard on for top QB play.

After Brees and Rodgers are gone there is a slight drop off to P Manning and Brady. In one of my leagues I’m going to buck my normal trend and take a QB on the late side. Especially with value in McNabb, Favre, Kolb, and Big Ben. Big Ben will fall late in drafts because of his suspension. McNabb will go late because his offensive line is horrific and he has only has 1 WR in Santana Moss. Heck right now 38 year old Joey Galloway is lining up as the #2 WR with the 1st team offense. Yes, the same Joey Galloway that had 7 catches last year. Kolb will fall (in non-Philly drafts) because he is such an unknown. We only have 2 pro games in which we can assess his young career.  Favre is Favre. At 40ish how much gas is still left in his tank? Plus Sidney Rice is on the PUP list. Berrian is a chronic underachiever and Harvin gets hurt more then Frank Gore. The true offense in Minnesota is AP not the passing game.

Even though I described all the reason not to take Favre, McNabb, Kolb, and Big Ben above I believe that all 4 of them can be starters on a fantasy roster. This gives one the opportunity to load up on top WRs in the first two rounds and still get good split back RBs in round 3 and 4. At round 5 you can go for a WR2 or a top flight TE. With this strategy in play round 6 would be a good time to grab a rookie with some upside. Leaving Round 7 to grab one of the 4 QBs I described above.

    I am in two fantasy leagues this year. Last year I was only in one. In one league I have the 5th pick and another I have the 7th pick. I like Turner a lot, if he is available at both picks should I double up or take someone else?

      Zach remmber that time when you were dating Jesse and Kelly. You had the time of your life. The point is take some one else dont double up. There are plenty of tasty flavors out there.

    Where is Flacco on your list of later round QB’s? I think he is a great late round target.

    @Zach – If you like Turner more than Gore, than go ahead and take him at #5, (and at 7 if he is available), but I like Gore better than turner at either spot.

    @zach – I agree w. Legend Gore is the btr player. Gore plays for Singletay who is a smash mouth run the football type of coach.

    @the legend – I have Flacco in my mind as right around 10 out of 30 QB’s in the NFL. So yea he would qualify as a late round target. Considering I have favre, big ben, kolb, dmac in that 10-20 range… But Flacco has gotten a little more hype going into this draft w. the Boldin addition and super bowl hype surrounding this team…

    If I am lucky enough to get Gore at 7 I would take him. If he is not available should I take Turner, Steven Jackson, Mendenhall, Moss, Rodgers, Brees?
