A few weeks ago, we wrote an article on roster construction for Superflex leagues. That article stressed the importance of investing heavily in the quarterback position. This article will build on that thought.
We went back through the 2016 season, taking a closer look at how the quarterback position fared against the other fantasy positions. Well, the results were striking. Five of the top seven performers were quarterbacks, even in Points Per Reception (PPR) scoring. Seven passers and three running backs comprised the top ten players. This trend continues as quarterbacks outpace the other positions.
The table below shows the players, broken down by position. These are tiered by their respective Points Per Game (PPG) Average with a minimum of ten games played. The minimum is to keep outliers from skewing the numbers.
