When it comes to the quarterback position and fantasy football rankings for the 2018 season one word comes to mind -- deep. How else can you describe the pool that has a former league MVP ranked nowhere near the top 10?

And while there may be health questions when it comes to some of those ranked ahead of Matt Ryan, namely Deshaun Watson, Carson Wentz and of course, Andrew Luck, consider that past fantasy darlings like Ben Roethlisberger and 2017 breakthough star Jared Goff also fall outside of the top 12. And let's not forget about Jameis Winston either, who went from a top-10 option to the middle tier thanks to his three-game suspension.

This year's quarterback pool is plenty deep enough for those willing to wait during their fantasy drafts if they don't want to spend an early pick on Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson or Tom Brady. In fact, don't be surprised if someone ranked outside of the top 10 finishes in that range before all is said and done.
