Then there's the best reason of all for not taking ANY QB EVER in the first round ... there are lots of good quarterbacks available later in the draft and sometimes "Big Name Quarterbacks" are no more dependable year-to-year than fantasy DSTs.
Am I writing off Peyton this year due to the "run-first offense and win with defense" team strategy? No. He's still one of the top QB's in the league and can air it out when needed. He's going to light up some secondaries.
But he wasn't (and won't be) worth a first round pick.
And by the way ... if you're consistently winning most of your matchups, you're usually going to outscore your opponent. So what if one of his players score 12 points more than one of your players if all your other players are winning by several points?
So yeah guys, it's "all about the total points" but you only get a total by adding all the individual numbers together. Basic math revisited for the argumentative types
