The first round of every fantasy football draft covered in 2014 has been different across the board when it comes to quarterbacks, running backs and even wide receivers.
Since this article is about whether or not it's better to draft a quarterback or running back in the first round, lets take a look at these two positions specifically.
Argument For Drafting A Running Back
Even though running backs are losing value in a league where offenses are pass pass pass, there are still at least two running backs who are much more valuable than quarterbacks, especially in PPR leagues. This is enough of a reason why drafting a running back with a first or second overall pick is key because the pool of QB1-type quarterbacks is much deeper in 2014.
The argument whether a running back or a quarterback is more valuable in the first round mainly comes down to draft position and your particular scoring rules
In my opinion, these are the two running backs who deserve being drafted ahead of any quarterback (and receiver):
- Eagles RB LeSean McCoy
- Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles
