I cant really remember a year that QB seemed to be this deep. There are a lot of guys that I would trust to throw out there. There are certain points in the draft, if you wait, where you’ll see a group of pretty good QBs together that you’ll get to choose from. If you haven’t done any mock drafting yet, you’ll be surprised as to how late you can get good QBs. Here are my official QB rankings for the 2012 fantasy football season.
1. Aaron Rodgers (GB)
2. Drew Brees (NO)
3. Tom Brady (NE)
4. Matthew Stafford (DET)
5. Cam Newton (CAR)
Rodgers, Brees, and Brady are in a league of their own. They are this year’s class of 1st round QB’s. I absolutely recommend taking Rodgers within the top 5 overall. Brees is a solid late round pick, as is Brady. Because of the QB depth however, I wouldn’t personally take one of these two guys in the first round. I would rather take elite RB’s, WR’s, and TE’s. If all of the guys that I wanted were gone, I’d grab Brees or Brady. If these guys fall to round 2, I would certainly take them. Other than that, I’d rather wait a little.
Stafford and Newton are your next group of guys. These guys go in round 2. Both of them have the potential to pass the top 3 guys, but they are more of a risk. Stafford has had a history of injuries. Newton had a ridiculous season that he can not repeat. Both guys are very talented though and should be coveted. If your picking at the end of round 2 and one of these guys are available, I think I’d have to take them. It’s tough for me to take them at the top of the second, once again because of the depth at QB opposed to the depth of other positions.
