For this year’s fantasy football draft, every owner in your league should realize that there is no position on the field that is more important on a week-to-week basis than the quarterback position. If they have not come to this realization, then this article will give you a favorable advantage over your competition for this year’s draft. Lets start out by taking a look at the top 10 scorers from the 2010 season. Standard scoring shows that 9 out of the top 10 scorers are none other than quarterbacks. The lowest of the group, Matt Schaub, average just short of 15 points per game. In comparison, only one running back averaged more than 15 points per game, and zero wide receivers managed the feat. There is not a single owner in the fantasy world that would turn down the opportunity to guarantee at least 15 points to their team each and every week.



     Another thing to pay attention to is the drop-off of talent after the first tier of elite quarterbacks are off the board. Once the first nine quarterbacks are off the board, the talent decreases significantly. The nine quarterbacks that you should aim for include: Aaron Rodgers, Michael Vick, Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Phillip Rivers, Drew Brees, Tony Romo, Matt Ryan, and Matt Schaub. The significance of drafting one of these quarterbacks increases with the size of your league. For example, if you are in a 16 team league, acquiring one of these quarterbacks assures you a better chance of winning than seven of the other teams that were not capable of drafting one of the top-tier quarterbacks.

     Another point to take away from this article is the fact that quarterbacks are much more coherent than any other offensive position that you will be drafting for. These nine names are consistently at the top of the scoring list year after year. Unlike other positions, which fluctuate on an annual basis, we have become accustomed to seeing these superstars at the top of their game since they entered in the league. Other positions, like running back, are more prone to injuries. The top 10 running back and wide receiver performer’s list never fails to change each year. This is due to the fact that these positional players do not age as well as quarterbacks. The average age of running back is 28 years old, and studies have shown that the years following their 28th birthday are not as encouraging as their prime years coming out of college.



     Although there is a fair amount of luck involved with fantasy sports, it is important to remember to draft with security and consistency in mind. Quarterbacks offer the most dependable outcomes on a weekly basis. By following the elite quarterback mentality for this year’s fantasy football draft, you will be eliminating luck and replacing it with the best foundation and odds to win your head to head matchup every week. After reading this article, you can sit back, relax, and thank your quarterback for the comfortable ride to your league’s fantasy football championship.
