    Do franchise quarterbacks deserve all the credit for winning?

    Fantasy Douche has traditionally been one to bust conventions when it comes to NFL truths, written or unwritten. Back in January, he challenged the assumption that a quarterback is the key to a winning franchise by taking a look at the Patriots’ passing game history and what it means to have talented receivers.

    “Obviously the optimal situation is a franchise QB with two wide receivers who can get open at will. But dumpster-fire-QB with two wide receivers who can get open at will ends up beating the franchise QB with two scrub WRs.”

    Aside from the stats Fantasy Douche shares on Tom Brady and his history with good receivers, it’s also timely to note the graph on Matt Schaub, considering how much hate he’s been getting lately.

    Rotoworld’s Evan Silva shared his “20 Trade Targets & 15 Stashes” just before Week 6. Unfortunately, his predictions for Vernon Davis, Eddie Lacy, A.J. Green, and Stevan Ridley may have already come too soon for you to acquire them. But Pierre Garcon, Gronkowski, and Tom Brady are likely to still be available at bargain rates.

    And remember to mind your trade manners.

    Footballguys’ Sigmund Bloom explained his quarterback tiers last month, and while the tiers themselves may not come as a surprise, the chunks Bloom creates with his tiers clearly show how deep the quarterback position is this year.

    Even if you choose to pass on top options and wait until the very late rounds to consider a quarterback, you can typically still snag Michael Vick as a desperation option. And even he has a chance to finish the year as the No. 1 overall fantasy quarterback if Chip Kelly’s offense explodes.
