QBs and Fantasy Football

Let's talk about QBs in fantasy football this year.  It has always been one of the toughest positions for me in a draft because I am usually not willing to take on early enough to get one of the best guys, and so I end up waiting forever because every time my pick comes around again all of the guys left on the board look the same to me.  I end up deciding I will get one next time, and that goes on for 5 rounds. 

In the last couple of years I have started looking at positions in tiers (I know that is not something new, but I have never really done it before) and looking at the QB numbers from last year I came up with the tiers after the jump:

Tier 1

Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Peyton Manning and believe it or not Matt Schaub

Tier 2

Brett Favre, Tom Brady, Tony Romo, Ben Roethlisberger*, and Philip Rivers

Tier 3

Jay Cutler, Eli Manning Donovan McNabb, Jason Campbell

Tier 4

David Garrard, Kyle Orton, Carson Palmer*, Joe Flacco*

Tier 5

Matt Ryan*, Matt Cassel, Matt Hasselbeck, Chad Henne, Alex Smith

Again, that is based on last year's numbers.  Here are my comments- Rapelisberger has to go down a tier because he will miss 4 games.

Palmer, Flacco and Ryan will all move up at least 1 tier this year.  Ryan might move up two.

With the exception of the above mentioned tier movers, Vince Young is a better option than any of the guys in 4 and 5.  Book it!
