Brought to you by Fan Duel: With the 2014 Fantasy Football season looming, one of the most important decisions fantasy owners will have to make is deciding which quarterback is going to helm your offense. The days of relying on a stud running back are gone, or if not gone, they're definitely not as important as in years past. With the NFL becoming a passing league, gunslingers and signal callers have become critical if you want to get the maximum number of points from that position.

For example, quarterbacks like Aaron Rodgers and Andrew Luck can run, and thus score touchdowns on the ground and air, making them extremely valuable, more so than someone else who maybe less fleet of foot. Then again, you can have someone like Peyton Manning who is a fantasy football owner's dream. 

So, which quarterback should you rely on to have a huge 2014 season? Hopefully this list answers that question and provides a good guide for what should be an exciting NFL year!
