Fantasy Football Rankings 2012: Breaking Down Jake Locker and More Value QBs
Finding undervalued players is the hallmark of any legendary fantasy football draft.
Having the fortitude to select Cam Newton in the late rounds in a 2011 league most likely won you a title but also likely drew snickers and criticism from friends and foes in your league.
However, you certainly got the last laugh and a solid payday for your decision.
If you missed out on Newton last year, or are trying to get lightning to strike twice with an underrated signal caller, here are some late-round QBs to consider.
Robert Griffin III – 79.31 ADP
RGIII is getting a lot of hype because of his high NFL draft status and the fact that he is going to start as a rookie, the path that Newton paved last season.
At 79 overall, the former Baylor standout is somewhat of a risk, but he’s certainly got the skills to reward those who select him.
The Skins have the tools in place for Griffin III to succeed, and there is no reason to think he will fail.
If you don’t have a QB by the seventh or eighth round and the Heisman winner is on the board, pull the trigger.
Josh Freeman – 126.28 ADP
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB got a lot of flak last year for regressing from his sophomore campaign.
In 2010-11, Freeman slung the rock well and gave owners 3,451 yards and 25 TDs, compared to just six interceptions. In 2011-12, he threw for more yards (3,592) but tossed just 16 TDs, compared to 22 INTs.
There is no way that the Bucs' running game will be as atrocious as it was last season—not with the addition of Doug Martin and the healthiness of LeGarrette Blount.
Expect a major bounce-back season for the Bucs and Freeman.
Which QB Will Be Most Valuable?
Jake Locker – 151.96 ADP
In limited playing time last season, the former Washington Huskies star was solid. He threw for 542 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions in five games. He also is a running threat, taking off eight times for a total of 56 yards and a TD.
With that kind of production and another year of practice and familiarity under his belt, Locker is going to be a serviceable starter in many fantasy leagues and a top back up.
