Should You Draft a QB In The Second Round?

Kyle Soppe, RotoExperts Staff

If you’ve been playing Fantasy Football for a while you know that Fantasy production is up at the quarterback position. Whether it is a result of rule changes or simply improved talent, offenses are airing the ball out as much now as ever, thus inflating Fantasy numbers. Did you know that last season we had 11 quarterbacks drop back to pass at least 600 times? That’s one more than the total number of quarterbacks to so in 2008 and 2009 combined. The increase in the sheer volume of attempts has quarterbacks putting up gaudy numbers and has resulted in Fantasy owners chasing elite production. But is that a wise move? Sure, the high-end production is as high as it’s ever been (Peyton Manning and Drew Brees combined for 805.7 Fantasy points last season, 17.2 more than the trio of quarterbacks that ranked 5-7, a group that included Manning, did in 2008), but that’s not to say that the second and third tiers of signal caller haven’t seen an equal, if not greater, rise.
