Aaron Rodgers is the consensus No. 1 Fantasy QB going into 2012

As fantasy football players, we can never seem to agree on very much. We have managed to reach a consensus on are the top four QBs going into 2012 fantasy drafts. We shall refer to them as the "Big Four" because nobody can ever seem to shut up about the "Big XX" when it comes to the NBA. Those four QBs are:

  1. Aaron Rodgers
  2. Tom Brady
  3. Drew Brees
  4. Cam Newton

Other than putting Rodgers at No. 1, you can pretty much mix and match the other three to your liking. These four QBs finished ranked 1-thru-4 last season, so it's not surprising to see them getting so much preseason love. The Drew Brees holdout does scare me a bit, but I expect the Saints to eventually pony up the cash.

So what do you do after the Big Four are off of the board? I would wait. Then wait. Then wait some more. Then eventually snap up two lower-ranked QBs in hopes of hitting on this year's Matthew Stafford or just to have a nice QB-By-Committee (QBBC).

Let's take a look at the QBs ranked 5-thru-14. We will use the Expert Consensus Rankings from Fantasy Pros as our baseline.
