We have been rolling out our team previews over the past few weeks, and three that I recently wrote were the Eagles, Redskins and 49ers. You can't talk about those three teams without mentioning their starting quarterbacks in Nick Foles, Robert Griffin III and Colin Kaepernick.
And all three are polarizing for Fantasy owners this year.
When I tweeted out the links to each story and mentioned the quarterbacks, I got back, as expected, some interesting responses. Here's a compilation of some of your remarks.
I tweeted that Foles makes me nervous. Do you want him as your No. 1 quarterback?

It's always nice to have the guarantee with #bookit.
@JameyEisenberg Agreed. Take away his 2 gms for 800+ yds 10 TDs vs 2 of worst pass def in league leaves him an avg of 200 yds/gm and 17 TD's— Cursed4Life (@Browndogg30) July 8, 2014
Those two games would be against the Raiders and Vikings, who were two of the three-worst teams in Fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks last year.
My colleague Dave Richard has Foles as the No. 7 quarterback ahead of Matt Ryan and Andrew Luck. I'll take the other two over Foles for sure.
I tweeted that Griffin is a quarterback I want to wait for on Draft Day.
@JameyEisenberg if you can get RG3 in the mid rounds it's great value he has the ability to be elite— Robert Huckabee (@robb2974) July 8, 2014
I completely agree.
@JameyEisenberg in the 6th, Yes. but once camp starts, coverage on new offense and health will push him into 5th, maybe 4th by late August— The Fantasy Ace (@TheFantasyAce) July 8, 2014
If that happens then he's getting to expensive for me as well.
@JameyEisenberg I think in the 5th or 6th round is perfect. This guy has more weapons then Kim Jong on his team. No excuses this yr.— Dan L'Altrella (@danlaltrella) July 8, 2014
That is a lot of weapons.
I tweeted that Kaepernick will be a Top 5 quarterback this season.
@JameyEisenberg top 5? No way brees, manning, Rodgers, Stafford, luck or matt Ryan before him— Gage Nettrour (@nettrourhour) July 8, 2014
I go back and forth between Ryan and Kaepernick, but Kaepernick has more upside with his running.
@JameyEisenberg Like him around 10-12. Due to well-documented read problems he is horribly inconsistent, & they are better when they run.— Matt Hart (@Raidermatt01) July 8, 2014
I get it, I'm bullish on Kaepernick. We'll see how it works out.
Yes. Yes, I am.
