You can always get a QB in a keeper league

by Jim Coventry, Guest Blogger

The best ones are protected already. The above average ones are flying off the draft board quicker than George Bush supporters. You are picking next and it will be quite a while before you pick again, so what do you do? If you don’t think you will be getting a really good QB, address the needs at another position.
