Quarterbacks in fantasy football often get overlooked in the preparation process in favor of running backs and wide receivers.
You only need to start one quarterback in standard leagues, and they don't get hurt as often as other positions, so you're usually set once you draft your starter.
That being said, the quarterback position is just as important as every other position, and it's a position that you should pay special attention to this year because the top tier of quarterbacks isn't as solid as it's been in seasons past.
Obviously getting a potential top-five quarterback is a huge advantage for your fantasy team, as is having a quarterback with the potential for a big game to carry your fantasy team during any given week.
Getting those attributes in a quarterback that you don't have to take in the first few rounds? That's even better.
These next three quarterbacks have the talent and opportunity to become top-five fantasy quarterbacks, but for different reasons none of them are going early in the draft.
These guys aren't without risk, but betting on them on draft day could pay off in a big way for your fantasy football team.
