There has been a myth circulating among fantasy players that its a good idea to target QB/WR combos because you get "double points". This theory is bunk and has been proven that QB/WR combos give absolutely no advantage whatsoever - I do not have the link, but I remember reading a thorough report on this topic this past offseason which pretty much debunked the myth.
Much like the contract yr myth, the combo myth still lives - neither have any merit.
It's a myth because you don't get double points. The guys still score the same. It's more like a double whammy. The advantage it gives you is if you can find a QB and a WR that are going to produce very well, you also basically lock up them producing well at the same time, which will go a long way towards you winning that week. I have 2 perfect examples with a couple teams of mine. One team has the McNabb/Owens combo. In weeks 1 and 5, I've lost and weeks 2,3, and 4 I've won going away. Nearly the same thing with Delhomme/S.Smith combo I have in another league. Weeks 1,3, and 5 I crushed. Week 2 I think I won slimly and week 4 I got beat.
As long as you have a few other solid producers on your team, that combo goes a long way towards you winning or losing.
