Fantasy Football 2011: Ranking the Best Values at QB on Draft Day

A fantasy football draft is kind of like buying a used car.  

Everybody wants to get the best bang for their buck, and no one wants to get embarrassed by making a bad decision.  

The key to coming out of either situation is identifying which option is the best value.

Depending on what kind of scoring system your league uses, you may not feel inclined to use an early-round draft pick on a quarterback.  

Most leagues give more points for rushing touchdowns than they do passing ones, and there's usually more spots to play a running back than there is a quarterback.

If you don't want to use an early pick on a quarterback for whatever reason, you've come to the right place.  I will help you find the quarterbacks that will give you the best value for when you finally decide it's time to pull the trigger on drafting your fantasy gunslinger.

Because I am strictly talking about value picks here, you won't find your top of the line quarterbacks named on the list. They will be going too early in most drafts to be considered a bargain.  

So don't write me any angry emails about how you lost your league because I told you to draft Sam Bradford instead of Tom Brady.  If you don't already know Tom Brady is a good fantasy quarterback then maybe fantasy football isn't the right hobby for you.

On a side note, if you have a late first-round pick and all the elite running backs are gone, you may want to consider making sure you get a top-tier quarterback at the back end of the first round and snag a second-level running back when your spot comes up the next time.
