The quarterback position has emerged as one of the most crucial parts of a fantasy football team, and there are vital factors to look at when determining the 10 best for the 2012 NFL season. The NFL is a pass-happy league, and getting a quarterback that can post excellent numbers weekly is the first priority in a draft.
This does not mean you have to take a quarterback in Round 1 of your draft. It means that you need to grab a good one that can stay with the best ones on a weekly basis.
Fantasy footballers used to be able to get away with waiting a long time in their draft to grab a starting quarterback as the gap between the top and the middle of the road quarterbacks was not all that great. It used to be worthwhile to wait to draft a quarterback.
The NFL has changed, and the gap between the elite and the middle of the road quarterbacks is massive. It is hard to make up on the 15 or more touchdowns that your team is already down if you do not draft an elite-level quarterback.
These are the 10 best fantasy football quarterbacks for the 2012 NFL season.
