Former Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis once famously declared his philosophy on pass rushing -- the opposing team's quarterback must go down, and he must go down hard.
Fantasy football owners usually adhere to that mindset when picking a defense/special teams group on draft day, but in many cases, that philosophy should also be considered when picking a quarterback.
Knowing which teams are going to be able to protect their quarterbacks and which are going to allow them to get hit is a valuable tool. After a multilayered review of pass-blocking metrics, I found some interesting, and in some cases surprising, draft-day tidbits.
KC Joyner examines how the pass-blocking abilities of various offensive lines will affect quarterback fantasy values.
