There exists an intractable psychological barrier for many fantasy footballers: Quarterbacks are important, quarterbacks get shoe deals and become the face of the franchise and win Super Bowls. Quarterbacks are unflinching field generals. Therefore I need to invest heavily in a quarterback for my fantasy football team. I need that elite signal caller.

Free agency isn’t yet over — it never really ends, does it? — but the vast majority of the top names have found homes, so we can start to sift through the signings and start to project how the top players will fare in 2014.
