One of the most difficult endeavors in fantasy football is finding a quarterback who adequately produces on a weekly basis. Everyone has an off-game, but there are a select few quarterbacks who are generally trusted to routinely put points on the fantasy board.

The question is, what do you do once those players are gone?

You’ve lucked out if you’ve landed Tom Brady, Andrew Luck, Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers or Russell Wilson. Once you get past Drew Brees and Ben Roethlisberger, however, there’s no telling what type of production you’re going to receive.

There are others who can help, including Tony Romo and Matt Ryan, but there are only so many consistently productive quarterbacks to go around.

You’ll likely take a quarterback early, but late in your fantasy football draft is where the gems reside. Don’t place your future in their hands, but remain aware of what their value is.

These are the late-round quarterbacks whom you need to gamble on.
