question on strategy

Postby bbalevic23 » Sun Jul 08, 2007 9:53 pm

I am playing in a league that starts 1 qb, 2 rb's, 2 wr's, 1 te, and 1 w/r.

In my mind there is a major dropoff after the first 3-4 picks. Since my league starts 2 qb's do you think it would be ok to take Peyton Manning with the 5th-10th pick?

He will end up with more yards and td's than all the other qb's but it seems like there is a lot of uncertaintly with the first round picks. I will list my team settings below. thanks



Roster Positions: QB, WR, WR, RB, RB, TE, W/R, K, DEF, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN
Stat Categories: Passing Yards (50 yards per point; 2 points at 350 yards)

Rushing Touchdowns (6)
Reception Yards (20 yards per point; 2 points at 125 yards)

Is it 1 or 2 starting QBs?

1 - No way Manning is a first round pick
2 - There is a case but I still wouldn't do it

I might go for it IF you have to start 2 QBs, especially because of the 6pt passing TD.

If thats the case, then just stick to the normal draft strategy. I always like RB/RB/WR in the first 3 rds, but thats just me.
