Fantasy Football: The best young quarterbacks in the game
Fantasy versus reality. It's a theme we often explore at ESPN. So when we were asked to rank the best young quarterbacks in the game, we had to ask: for fantasy, or for real?
Fantasy rankings aren't about wins and losses, playoff grit or championship rings. It's not about who makes whom better and whom you'd pick to start a brand-new NFL franchise. It's all about regular-season stats. So we asked our panel of fantasy experts to rank the top five quarterbacks they would target in a dynasty league, a league in which you can carry most of your squad from year to year with little in the way of draft considerations. Basically, you want the players who will be the best for your team not only right now but also for the next several years.
The panel consists of Matthew Berry, Tristan H. Cockcroft, Christopher Harris, Eric Karabell, Erik Kuselias, Keith Lipscomb, AJ Mass and James Quintong. Here's how the voting went, along with selected comments on the top five quarterbacks.
