SoB Fantasy Football Top 50 Big Board: Week 9

Aaron Rodgers (

Calvin Johnson continues his ascent all the way up from No. 9 to No. 2 on this week’s Big Board.  Jamaal Charles remains atop the board and Aaron Rodgers jumps to No. 10, becoming the third quarterback in the Top 10.  I think many people, including myself, believed entering this season that 12-14 quarterbacks would be good enough to make waiting until Round 4 or later to draft a QB a wise strategy.  The theory was that the talent gap by tier fell off more dramatically at other positions, specifically running back, to warrant loading up on position players early.  Brees, Manning and Rodgers have really rewarded owners, especially those who were wise with late-round picks like Knowshon Moreno.  I feel there are three QBs (Matt Stafford, Tony Romo, Cam Newton) on a second level that similarly can explode any week, but lack the level of comfortable consistency the first tier provides.  Contratily, New England fans are hoping Tom Brady turns it around since his struggles leave him perilously on the edge of the Top 50.
