The pass-happy offensive schemes currently in vogue in the NFL have shaken up the overall player rankings in fantasy football. Three quarterbacks -- Tom Brady, Drew Brees and Matthew Stafford -- threw for more than 5,000 yards last season, with Eli Manning not far behind. On the ground, Panthers signal caller Cam Newton set a record for most rushing touchdowns by a quarterback with 14. The only running back with more trips to the end zone was LeSean McCoy (17 TDs).

No other running back topped 12 rushing touchdowns.

Thanks to such prodigious production, the top five players in total points scored last season in many standard formats were quarterbacks, with eight cracking the top 10 in standard leagues at ESPN.com. It wasn't too long ago when nearly every name called out during the first round of fantasy drafts would belong to a running back. But the names of LaDainian Tomlinson, Larry Johnson and Adrian Peterson have given way to Brees, Cam and Rodgers.

What will you do with the quarterback position when your fantasy football draft rolls around? Will you try to snag one of the greats in the first round? Or maybe waiting a couple rounds for Big Ben is the plan? Scroll down below to see stats for all your fantasy quarterback options and rank them for the 2012 season.
