Quarterbacks now king in fantasy football

By the end of the first round of fantasy football drafts in past years, all of the top running backs had been selected. Most franchises had a feature back that received the majority of the carries, and these players were taken at a furious pace.

Now, top quarterbacks possess the value in fantasy drafts. The NFL has become a pass-happy league and having a top QB should be a goal, not a luxury. Think of it this way: Aaron Rodgers is the new LaDainian Tomlinson. Drew Brees is the new Marshall Faulk. Tom Brady is the new Terrell Davis.
