Yoda - I agree with your be prepared and adapt philosophy to a point. I also believe in RBs win championships. I guess if you put those 2 mottos together, you would probably have the best advice.
I do not agree that the most points scored wins championships. That simply isnt true. Sure, one objective is to score as many points as you can, but it has to go hand in hand with consistancy. Thats why WRs are not worth as much - they are too inconsistant and they score fewer points. Sure, in tweaked scoring where you get extra points per reception, everything changes.
However, what we are talking about here is at the heart of fantasy philosophy - WRs v. RBs. Your right - it is easy to chant RBs!Rbs!, but the hard part is getting people to understand why. How many times have you gone over to the Rate my team forum and seen this mistake? For me its almost on every team thats posted - they go for WRs when they should be going for RBs. I am not going to sit here and say thats ok. Im going to say, "no, you need RBs more than top teir WRs" every time. Im going to repeat it like a mantra until they listen.
I think its funny that you posted Exhibit 3 - look I took 3 WRs with my first 3 rds and I did Great! - oh, by the way, I also stole Portis. You dont see the hypocracy there?
