Jimmy GrahamCrystal LoGiudice/USA TODAY SportsThe Drew Brees-Jimmy Graham partnership will be lucrative for the Saints ... and fantasy owners.

When there are 14 quarterbacks projected to score 250 or more fantasy points, it can cause passers to fall a lot further down draft boards than they should.

This is the first in a four-part series that aims to help fantasy owners by identifying players who are undervalued, starting with the seven quarterbacks who fall into this category. These players are being taken later in drafts (as determined by ESPN.com's average draft position) than they should be based on my analysis. They range from elite passers who could be on the verge of career-best seasons to quarterbacks who have a shot to crack the top 10 in fantasy scoring at the position but are being taken among the ranks of No. 2 fantasy QBs.

Here are my seven most undervalued fantasy quarterbacks:


Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints

Current ESPN live draft ADP: 14.1
Current ESPN live draft positional rank: No. 3
The Football Scientist (TFS) positional rank: No. 1
