Waiting to draft a quarterback

This is going to be a Draft Prep column coming soon, but here's a tip on drafting quarterbacks this season.

My advice to Fantasy owners drafting a quarterback has always been that it's the most personal decision you'll make. If you who love an elite quarterback you'll take Peyton Manning in Round 1 or Aaron Rodgers or Drew Brees in Round 2 no matter who is still on the board. There's nothing wrong with that because they're the best of the best for a reason.

But if you're like me and prefer to stockpile your team with talent at running back and receiver early on Draft Day then wait. You can still get a Top 10 or even Top 5 quarterback several rounds later and win your league.

The quarterbacks I plan to target this season in their expected rounds are Matthew Stafford (Round 4), Andrew Luck (Round 6), Matt Ryan (Round 7), Colin Kaepernick (Round 8), Robert Griffin III (Round 8) and Tony Romo (Round 9). My fallback option is Jay Cutler (Round 10). If things go right – my goal is Kaepernick, Ryan, Griffin or Romo - I'll have a plethora of standout running backs and receivers with a potential stud quarterback as well.

The position is deep, and you don't have to reach – if you don't want to.
