The quarterback position is one of the toughest to draft in fantasy football. While you can go the safe route and choose an Aaron Rodgers-type player, it’s worth knowing that some lower-ranked guys are well worth your attention. Read on for the five most underrated fantasy football quarterbacks as the 2014 season draws near.

Don’t sleep on Brady, who’s dropped into the double-digits of some fantasy rankings for quarterbacks. The future Hall-of-Famer lifted a nearly nameless group to the AFC Championship game last year. Imagine what he’ll do after an entire offseason of work with those same pass catchers.

4. Andy Dalton

There’s nothing that gives a player confidence quite like a big contract. Now that the Bengals have committed to Dalton for the long term, look for the quarterback to disprove the doubters and continue to take advantage of having elite receiver A.J. Green.

3. Jay Cutler

Like Dalton, Cutler is still wiping contract ink off his fingers. The two-headed receiving monster of Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery makes Cutler a very, very good option as a starting fantasy quarterback.

2. Philip Rivers

Coming off of his best season as a pro in 2013, Rivers has to be taken more seriously in the fantasy world. In particular, the promise of Keenan Allen improves the value of the veteran quarterback, who won the Comeback Player of the Year Award last season.

After taking the NFL by storm last season, Foles has to be viewed as a top-five fantasy quarterback. You can bet that after another full offseason of late-night scheming, coach Chip Kelly will have big plans for Foles in 2014.
