It’s no secret that the quarterback position is pretty deep in fantasy football. In fact, there’s really no doubt at all that it’s the deepest position. By far. However, the deeper the fantasy football league, the more fantasy owners want to test the boundaries.
For instance, in a regular 10-team fantasy football league, you can wait until round 12 and possibly land Russell Wilson, who has finished as a top-10 fantasy passer in each of the last two years. Going further into a 12-team league though, if you want Wilson you have to take him a little earlier and aim to select him in round 10. Boost it to a 14-team league, and suddenly it’s probably a good idea to go get Wilson as early as the ninth round.
Needless to say, 14+ team leagues are more competitive and make it harder to draft an elite fantasy roster. For those who like to wait extra long on quarterbacks (especially in deeper leagues), it might be a good idea to have a solid list of quality options to choose from.
For that exact purpose, we’ve compiled a list of five underrated fantasy quarterbacks for 2014 that are regularly going in round 10 or later in 14-team fantasy football league drafts:
