2010 fantasy football draft guide: quarterback QB overrated players. Welcome to the 2010 fantasy football season! Here are my top 3 quarterback QB overrated player picks to begin the 2010 fantasy football season. Overrated player picks are based on a standard mixed NFC/AFC single season redraft fantasy football league for the 2010 season. Quarterback QB overrated player selections are based on players who will likely be drafted earlier in 2010 fantasy football drafts than what their overall fantasy football scoring worth will warrant for the 2010 season. Quarterback QB overrated player selections should not be considered busts, as they could easily and should put up solid stats during the 2010 season. However, overrated player selections are essentially players I would not reach for or draft too high in fantasy football drafts to begin the 2010 season.

Quarterback (QB) Overrated Players
1. Philip Rivers – SD
After back to back seasons of 4000 plus passing yards and 28 plus passing touchdowns in 2008 and 2009, the loss of Vincent Jackson in the Chargers lineup will likely hurt Rivers’ fantasy value more than anyone wants to believe. I would not say that Rivers will be a bust for fantasy football teams during the 2010 season, but a regression in overall passing stats is very possible. If anything, Rivers is all but assured to not outperform his 2009 season stats in 2010.
2. Donovan McNabb – Was
A move to Washington could very easily revitalize McNabb, but I am certainly not going to be overanxious to have McNabb on my fantasy football team this season. With aging ‘used to be stars’ surrounding him on offense in the likes of Santana Moss, Joey Galloway, Clinton Portis, Willie Parker, and Larry Johnson, and underperforming young guys like Devin Thomas and Malcolm Kelly in the picture, I really do not see how McNabb could possibly have a better season in 2010 than what he had in 2009 with the Eagles. I would draft McNabb as a backup and spot starter QB for the 2010 season, but surely would not want to rely on him as an every week starting QB on my fantasy football team.
3. Brett Favre – Min
Maybe it is just me, but for some reason I have noticed that aging veterans (in any major sport really, NFL, MLB, NBA) always seem to have an incredible swan song season before they completely fall off their fantasy rocker the following season. With Favre having an incredible 2009 season last year at age 40, I would absolutely bet for a regression during the 2010 season. Add in the mix an injured Sidney Rice to begin the season, and Favre’s fantasy football value is more shaky than most fantasy football managers will believe.
