great strategy, great research.
do you mind if I steal it?
All of those matchups are cheese - you should be thrilled.

i agree with moochman, you should have gotten a sleeper WR instead of holcomb. if u started 2 QB i could understand having 3, but no need to have 2 backups

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


Yup. It's just a preference of mine, with RBs so valuable, I just like to try and grab as many quality RBs as posible. With Hassselbeck as your backup you have no worries at QB.

Although I disagree with your strategy, I like the idea of taking 3 quality QBs somewhat late rather than one stud early. QBs get injured a lot, and have the widest variation between one year and the next in terms of fantasy value of any position. Waiting until late and then drafting a lot of QBs with the hopes that one will prove to be a stud is a good plan.

I don't like the idea of playing the matchup, though. LIke someone posted above, you'll be constantly kicking yourself for not playing a QB who had a great game and starting a dud that week. The only time I'd use that strategy is if you're playing the TB defense. Remember that often when teams get ahead, they run the ball a lot, and going against a poor D won't necessarily translate into fantasy wins.

Right now your 3 QBs might seem fairly even, but they'll most likely separate themselves as the season goes on. Not a bad strat to use for the first few games though.

If this was my team, however, Hasselbeck would be my starter until proven unworthy.

Im kind of torn. I love the idea on the surface and think the research and forethough/planning was very impressive. Im kind of worried about teams pounding the ball on the ground though like someone said earlier. This is my second time checking this forum as I wanted to see some other replies before commenting. In response to my concern about too much running though...didnt you say that those were the worst passing D's in the league last year, not overall D's.

Yes, the 6 teams that I previously named were 6 of the worst against the pass last year, they were not some of the worst teams against the run.
Basically, those teams weekness on defense was more against the pass then the run.

I agree with Mooch - you can never have too many RB's and unless you are carrying a stud QB who happens to be injured but will return by the middle of the year - there are few other reasons to carry three QB's.
