Need advice on a draft I am doing.

Postby Harvinator28 » Tue Aug 29, 2006 12:14 pm

Ok I am doing a distance scoring league where you start 2 qb's. 12 teams, 20 rounds. Here is what you start..

1 Quarterback
2 Running Backs
3 Wide Receivers
1 Tight End
1 Kicker
1 Defense / Special Teams unit
1 Utility Player (Utility player may be any offensive player other than kicker. It can be a running back, quarterback, wide receiver, or tight end.)

Here is the scoring.....

RUSH, PASS, RECEIVING:

Passing TD 0-39 yards = 3pts
Passing TD 40 yards or more = 6 pts.

Rushing TD 0-39 yards = 6 pts.
Rushing TD 40 yards or more = 9 pts

Receiving TD 0-39 yards = 6 pts.
Receiving TD 40 yards or more = 9 pts.

Passing, Rushing or Receiving 2 pt. Conversion = 2 pts.
Receptions = 1 pt.
Interceptions thrown = (-1) pt.
Fumbles Lost = (-1) pt.

YARDAGE
Yards passing divided by 20 = 1 pt.
Yards rushing and receiving divided by 10 = 1 pt.



My question is this, how early should I take 2 of the better qb's and if anyone has any experience with this type of league, maybe a little advice on how to approach it. Thanks in advance.

Well, you left off a very important piece of info. What draft pick do you have. Since I don't know what pick you have I will give you an example of how I am approaching an upcoming draft in which I have the 3rd pick.

My first round pick is going to be easy. I will take whoever is left out of Alexander, Johnson and Tomlinson. After that I've created a ranking list of all the different positions.

The most important part of ranking positions is determing the major drop off points. For instance if your WR list is like this:
(These are not my actual rankings)

7 Holt
8 Harrison
9 Wayne
10 Toomer

You will see a big drop off between #9 and #10. You need to identify these gaps for at least 4 levels for RB and WR, 3 levels for QB and 2 levels for TE.

Once these gaps are identified I can now create a if/then list. Such as:

If top 5 RB's are gone then select a top 4 WR.
If top 2 WR are gone then select top 10 RB.
If top 10 RB's are gone then select top 2 QB.
(do not use these exact examples..they won't work. Determine your own preferences.)

I also throw in caveats such as, Once a QB is taken do not draft another until the later rounds. Basically this keeps you from taking Carson Palmer in the 4th round if you already have Peyton Manning.

The important thing to do is to identify where that big RB drop off is and decide if you want to take a top 2 QB or top 4 WR over the 2nd/3rd tier of RB's and write out your plan accordingly.

Also, my suggestion in most situations is to get 2 RB's in the first 3 rounds. (I wouldn't take a qb until the top 2 tiers of RB's are off the board.)

Good Luck

I'm a bit confused.....do you start 1 QB, or 2?? You said 2 different things there.

Also, What pick are you???

This is a pretty silly rules implementation, IMO. Might as well just make it a 2 QB league.
