The Only Carrying 1 QB "Strategy" (or, am I nuts?)

If you have Peyton Pepper McNabb Bulger Daunte Green Favre I think you only need 1 QB and its an excellent strategy. If you have QBs worse than that I would be picking backups because most of them are so up and down I wouldnt want to start them 15 weeks

Well, the Peyton Trade got rejected (First year Guy can't see the forest for the trees.) :-D

Anywho, I think I'll be OK (H**l, it's not like it's my $$ league) with Delhomme. You should see some of the RBs and WRs the other guys are starting, much less their full rosters. Sooner or later I'll either pick a #2 QB off the WW or someone will come lookin' for a RB.

Since I'm never willing to put a high pick down on a stud QB, you gotta have those QBs in numbers so you can play the matchups. Multiple QBs on your roster can be deadly when you use them in favorable matchups. Why not use a 11th, 12th, 14th round pick on a guy like Brian Griese, Steve McNair, etc, instead of a sleeper WR..

Go into the season with only 1 QB and you might get lucky and find a Jon Kitna(2003-waiver wire top10 QB) or a Drew Brees(2004-waiver wire top10 QB) on the waiver wire. But at the same time you missed out on the Matt Hasselbeck (2003-later round pick #4 QB) and Jake Plummer (2004-later round pick #5 QB).

Why not try for both?

could not have said it better myself. Well put, this is precisely my qb strategy.

I like this move if you're in a ten team league since there should be some decent QBs on the waiver wire...but if you're in a league with 12 or more teams you're one play away from using Kyle Boller and Drew Bledsoe for the rest of the year.

I'm not a fan of this strategy and I usually end up doing the exact opposite. So instead of drafting one, even one stud QB, I usually draft two middle of the road QBs and play matchups. I usually end up with Pennington and Leftwich or Favre.
