How Does 6 Points for TD Passes Affect Drafting?

About the only real change is that you can absolutely legitimize taking Manning in the first rd. Other than that, it doesn't affect my rankings much.

even with 4 points per td manning and culpepper are 1 and 2. I think P Manning should be 1 overall with 6 per td pass.

Actuallly C-pep had a better fantasy year than Manning, or atleast in my league!


yeah, he was #1 in alot of leagues and was number 1 with 4 pts per td. But with upcoming drafts if it were 6 points per td I think Manning should be the number 1 pick. I think he is a sure as one could be about anyone finishing at the top of his position.

It is 25/6. So, it looks like I'm going to be grabbing Peyton if he falls to wehrever my position is in the 1st round.

What about Culpepper... Would you take with the, say, 7th or 8th pick?

dont take Pepper in the first round and dont take Manning unless you are outside of top 3 IMO

The only QB I would go for with your first round pick would be Manning. If he goes before you then I would aim for a big-yardage guy like Collins or Green who also score a lot of TD's.

my league has six point per passing TD and the only QB selected in the first round was Peyton Manning. Culpepper and McNabb are usually second round choices, but don't go overboard with a QB, it doesn't affect things all that much, RBs are still the difference makers.

Ok, I forgot to mention that could be important on this topic. We get to start an offensive utility man, meaning you can start 2 QB's if you want. How would you utilize this? Pass on the top QB's and grab two mid-tier guys? Take a Manning/CPep/McNabb and a mid-tier QB? Or not start 2 QB's at all?

In this case, haveing a QB in the Util spot is very important. In that case, I'd try to go for two mid-level guys liek Collins/Delhomme/Brady/Brees. One can be the starting Qb, the other can be in the flex.

(edit - unnecessary comment.)
First the Shock, then the Pistons can the Lions be next?

Well maybe next yr.

PS I didn't lose a paper bag challenge but somehow as a Lion's fan it just feels right.
