The available player pool is vast in fantasy football. While every player has their price, most drafts will center around 40-50 target players and key avoid players on an owner's draft board. These strong takes for the upcoming season based on average draft position (ADP) sculpt a draft plan. Here is the early draft plan for the quarterback position by May 2017 myfantasyleague.com ADP:
QUARTERBACKS TO TARGET
marcus mariota, qb8
Mariota progressed nicely from Year 1 to 2, boosting his touchdown total by seven and running for more than 350 yards. Despite a mere 30 pass attempts per game, Mariota was a fringe QB1 in 15 games. The Titans added Corey Davis at No.5 in the NFL Draft, plus added move tight end Jonnu Smith in the later rounds. Mariota has arguably done more with less on a fantasy front than all the recent top quarterbacks. Mariota has as much rushing upside as any non-Cam Newton option out there. Mariota's advanced metrics were up across the board in 2016 despite little around him. Mariota is one of the few quarterbacks with top-2 fantasy upside if everything clicks.
