2014 Fantasy Football Draft Guide: Eric Mack's QB Blueprint
USA TODAY Sports

We say this every year, so our apologies if you are a return customer: Quarterback won't be the first position you fill on draft day—at least it shouldn't be—but it will be your most important.

With that in mind, this 2014 Fantasy Football Draft Guide quarterback blueprint is the most influential piece of fantasy content you will read all preseason. Yeah, it is Peyton Manning-2013 good.

As passing numbers go beyond the ridiculous, like they did with Manning a year ago, and the league continues to promise to crack down on illegal contact downfield and pass interference, quarterbacks will only further distance themselves from the pack as the highest scorers in fantasy football. That doesn't mean you pick the position in Round 1, though.

There are just too many good quarterbacks to do that. You can get an elite passer as late as the middle rounds. As general rule of thumb, Round 6 of a standard fantasy league is a good round to have your starter in place by.

This blueprint provides some ways to attack the position, giving you rankings, tiers, rookies, depth chart battles to watch, injury risks to weigh, breakouts, busts, sleepers, players in contract years and some overall draft-day strategies. You won't find a more comprehensive look at the position in one place on the whole dang World Wide Web.
