Well I didn't vote cause it is yes and no.
I don't draft looking to do this but in certain case I would if it were available to me and was my best option the way that particular draft is running

Combos like Manning/Harrison would be a yes

Carr and AJ would be a no.

Unless it is a prolific combo btwn QB and WR I will most of the time shy away from it.

I really have no concern with QB/RB as long as the team uses a balanced offense. RB will get his yards and the QB will get his.

I don't like it, but if I see a player at great value given what pick I have, I won't go out of my way and pick a worse player just to avoid it.

The best offenses in the league are going to score somewhere around 50 TD's a year...

If you pair the QB and RB from those offenses, and you avoid RBBC situations and goal line vultures, you are basically locking up a piece of 50 TD's with (2) positions...

That's just plain awesome, no matter how you slice it...

If your team is winning big the RB will get garbage points in the fourth quarter... If they're losing big your QB will get garbage points in the fourth quarter...

It avoids a situation where one guy or the other sees a drop off in production because the team is vastly ahead or vastly behind...

How many times has the Carson Palmer owner seen the Bengals get up by 20 points, and Carson's day goes to hell while Rudi explodes?

Conversely, how many times has the Rudi owner seen the Bengals get down by 20, and all of a sudden the running game is non-existent?

If you pair the two, then you're golden in either situation...

Points on every offensive play.... You just gotta love that...

;-D

This just makes your team more streaky. If you like your chances of winning the league, maybe you shouldnt do it. But if you think you'll need a little luck it may be a good idea to get a few guys on the same team.

I actually think it would be cool to see the CAR back-up QB throwing passes to the HOU WR1... definately would put a different spin on this combo thing... :-b

Yep, I actually think if Carr throws TD's to AJ this year, the owner should get double the points.

Seriously, I don't go out looking to get a combo, but I did have the Bulger/Holt combo two years ago and I scored mad points. I've never had the QB/RB combo, but I definitely try to stay away from the RB/WR combo. That is way too streaky in my estimation. But that's just my .02.

I think I'd factor in strength of schedule. A team like the Rams with top-end fantasy players and a weak schedule would be great for combinations.

The Manning/Harrison pairing, although a strong one in the past, isn't as tempting with the Colts facing one of the toughest schedules (based on last year's win/loss records). Likewise Addai, as much as we like him, doesn't have much of a track record yet. Colts pairings could be very risky this year.

I like pairing QB & WR and for no other reason than my first year of Fantasy Football was the year the Rams won the superbowl & I had Warner & Bruce.

I think this thread needs a well-deserved bump. Plindsey's comments hit the nail on the head. It opened up a few things for me when i sit down and think of it. A QB/RB combo on a good offense is great! I never really though about that indepth enough b/c i go by the motto of take the best player available. But when you break this down, if someone like Bulger is available and i already have SJ, i will then target Bulger now. That goes for the Palmer rudy combo too. Great read and great points ;-D
