QB strategy - 3 headed monster

Postby The Guru » Wed Aug 27, 2003 4:15 pm

For my draft strategy I planned on taking my first QB in the later rounds. But take my backup QB before most of the other teams.

Minnesota, Detroit, Arizona, Cinncinati, Kansas City, and San Diego were 6 of the worst secondaries last year and gave up alot of points to QB's last year. So I targeted QB's who I could get late in the draft that played these teams.

In a 12 team draft I got:
Favre in the 7th rd
Hasselbeck in the 9th rd
Holcomb in the 12th rd

I'm planning on starting the QB with the best matchup b/c I feel all three are fairly equal QB's. I am able to start either one each week against any of the worst 6 defenses last year against the pass.

*Each week one opponent is in Bold, that would be the QB I am probably starting that week.

Bret Favre...................Matt Hasselbeck.............Robert Holcomb

Wk..Opponent....................Opponent......................Opponent

1...Minn...........................NO................................Ind
2...Det...........................at Ari.............................at Bal
3...at ArI.........................StL................................at SF
4...at Chi........................bye................................Cinn
5...Sea...........................at GB..............................Pitt
6...KC.............................SF.................................Oak
7...at StL.........................Chi................................SD
8...bye...........................at Cinn...........................at NE
9...at Minn......................Pitt.................................bye
10..Phil...........................at Wash..........................KC
11..at TB.........................Det................................Ari
12..SF.............................at Balt............................Pitt
13..atDet........................Clev..............................atSea
14.Chi............................at Minn...........................SL
15..at SD........................at StL..............................Den
16..at Oak.......................Ari..................................Bal
17..Den..........................at SF...............................at Cinn

Starts: 9............................4....................................4

I think this strategy will work out very well for me. The 6 defenses that I previously named will probably once again have some of the worst secondaries in the league. Giving me a very favorable matchup weekly for my three QB's.

Good job, except I would play Farve in week 8, Hasselbeck in week 4 and Holcomb in week 9. :) JK


Actually, I waited till the later rounds for my qbs as well. I got Warner in the 6th, Garcia in the 8th and Holcomb in the 13th. Your qbs are closer, but if Warner has the year I think he's going to, I'll only have to make a hard decision 1 week out of the season.

Kudos on the planning. Unfortunately, who know how good Hasselbeck or Holcomb are really going to play this year? You might end up playing Holcomb 10 games. You never know.

Good analysis, but my assumption is that you will start Hasselbeck the majority of the year. Prepare for stud status with him.

I like your strategy, but you should be thrilled to get Favre in the seventh round to begin with. The guy never misses a game and always produces.

i like the idea a lot....the only problem is that if one QB throws for 4 TDs (that you didnt start) and another passes for 1 td and 3 ints (that you started) you will be kicking yourself! ha

Good job, except I believe your third quarterback is Kelly Holcomb of the Browns, not Robert Holcomb of the late-90s Rams. I knew what you meant, though.

Good luck,

great strategy... always take qbs late, i waited till 4th round when gannon fell to me and i couldnt pass that up, i also picked up kelly holcomb off fa to be my backup and while waiting for gannon i got harrison,ahman green and amani toomer so waiting for a qb till 4th round and later is the way to go...

it is a great strategy the only thing i disagree with is that u said they are all pretty equal, favre is a notch ahead of hasselbeck and hasselbeck a notch ahead of holcomb, but with favre starting the most for u anyways it doesnt really matter

I’ll have to disagree, I don’t think it is that great a strategy. I love the idea of matching up your starters, that‘s part of what makes ff so great, but I don’t feel you needed Holcomb, Kelly or Robert. Without knowing the make up of your league I can’t understand the logic behind carrying 3 Qbs. I would start Hasselbeck against the Skins (who I believe will give up a lot of points this year), and Favre the rest of Holcomb’s starts. With the pick spent on Holcomb you could’ve grabbed a backup RB or sleeper WR. Just my 2 cents.

Start:
1 QB
2 RB
3 WR
1 TE
1 Def
1 K

6 Bench players

So do you still think carrying 3 QB's is too much?
