The addition of a new quarterback to a team can bring a much needed jolt into an offense, but it could also end up destroying it. Fantasy football players need to pay attention to what happens with free agency in the next few days. Without further ado, here are five QB free agents to watch in 2014.

Brady Quinn was a part of the endless quarterback rotations in Cleveland, and the most games he has ever played in a season is 10. Quinn could just need a different opportunity to try and prove his worth, but he may also just not be able to play in the NFL. If a team adds Quinn even as a backup, be weary. If the main signal caller goes down with an injury, your star wide receiver may become a dud with Quinn leading the team.

Josh Freeman has been fantasy relevant in different points of his career, and many fantasy owners seemed to be waiting for his breakout season. The short season with the Minnesota Vikings cannot be held against Freeman. He had little time to learn the playbook before he played and was never given a full opportunity to earn his starting job. It will be interesting to see his 2014 fantasy impact.

One of the most intriguing options in fantasy football, Josh McCown revitalized his career with the Chicago Bears when Jay Cutler was injured. He threw 13 touchdowns and only one interception, and several teams would benefit from his veteran leadership. He needs to sign with the right team for him to be fantasy relevant.

Will the real Matt Flynn please stand up? He is mostly known for losing starting jobs on several different teams, but perhaps he still needs to search for the right job. We have all seen his potential, so maybe he can showcase it with the right team in 2014.

When he can stay healthy, Michael Vick is one of the most explosive players in fantasy football. Vick started out the 2013 fantasy football as an absolute stud, but his injury-prone nature found him once more. He is the best free agent quarterback out there, and he could be a great sleeper in 2014 if he can stay on the field.
