Is waiting for quarterback still a viable fantasy draft strategy in 2021?
Sure, there's a plethora of top running backs and wide receivers — not to mention a pair of elite tight ends — to start your fantasy team off with in the early rounds, but when does it become prudent to draft a QB?
Considering the god-like powers of Patrick Mahomes and the cheat-code, dual-threat signal callers who come after him, it seems like 2021 could be a year where, if you don't snap one of those top guys early, you might be left wanting later on.
Josh Allen, Kyler Murray, a returning Dak Prescott, talented youngsters Jalen Hurts, and Justin Herbert — Herbert, who is ranked seven spots after Mahomes in our analysts' rankings and represents an intriguing value. Will Herbert take the next step in Year 2 with the Chargers and enter the top-five fantasy finishers at his position (he finished ninth in 2020)? Or will a sophomore slump kick in?
Will you be prioritizing quarterback early in 2021, or are you down to wait considering the depth at the position?
