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.

Heading into the season, I have Kaepernick ranked as the No. 5 quarterback, Griffin at No. 10 and Foles at No. 12. You can read each story on the Eagles, Redskins and 49ers to find out why.

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.

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.

I completely agree.

If that happens then he's getting to expensive for me as well.

That is a lot of weapons.


I tweeted that Kaepernick will be a Top 5 quarterback this season.

I go back and forth between Ryan and Kaepernick, but Kaepernick has more upside with his running.

I get it, I'm bullish on Kaepernick. We'll see how it works out.

Yes. Yes, I am.
