What should I use?

Postby mystykoekaki » Tue Jun 20, 2006 2:33 am

I'm this years commissioner of a Yahoo! redraft league. I got all my settings situated just fine except for the QB settings. How should my QB settings be arranged so that it is fair against my WR/RB settings? My WR/RB settings are: 10 yards(rushing or recieving) = 1 pt, Touchdown = 6 pts. I have thought about this question so hard and still no direct answer.

50 passing yards = 1 pt, Touchdown = 6 pts?
50 passing yards = 1 pt, Touchdown = 4 pts?
25 passing yards = 1 pt, Touchdown = 6 pts?
25 passing yards = 1 pt, Touchdown = 4 pts?
other?

Please explain why you would set your QB settings, I'm very interested in people's opinions and also to give my league to answer if they ask why the settings are the way they are. Thanks!

My personal favorite are 25yards/1, and 4pt/1TD. This makes the QB a valuable part of the offense, but still gives you reason to draft RB first, not throwing off the usual fantasy drafts too much.

My second favorite is 25yd/pt, 6pt/TD leagues. This actually makes the QB usually better than the RB, but because of value, RB is still drafted first. Also, if QBs get hurt, replacements can be sought on the WW.

The other two systems devalue the QB too much ... so I think in terms of realism, they shouldn't be used.

My $ 0.02. ;-D

I like 25/4 as well for the same reasons listed above.

These settings de-value quarterbacks too greatly. Depending on your other league settings, QBs can become almost an afterthought as compared to RBs and WRs.

This setting can place too much emphasis on the QB spot. Imagine if Peyton Manning has another season where he throws for 40+ touchdowns and over 4000+ yards. The guy with Peyton Manning on his squad could win his head to head matchups nearly every week despite minimal contribution from the rest of his roster .

This seems to achieve the best balance.
