I agree with you here Az, but I had to criticize this article because right after they talk about not drafting a QB early, they then go over making sure to know your league requirements. Essentially, their rule 2 and rule 3 can be contradictory depending on rule 3. Under normal circumstances, a statement of "don't take a QB early" should be understood as being said in reference to "traditional" leagues.

I know it's like 2 weeks later but reading over this there are a couple of small points I'd like to state. To reiterate what Az said, I've read quite a few expert articles and all of them have been from talking about standard settings ie. 1 QB, 2 RB and 3 WR. And hardly any of them mention the settings in the article because they expect you to assume this. Second I don't think point 2 contradicts point 3 as many guys have said. Just because he says QB's have slightly more value in 6 point vs a 4 point TD league doesn't mean he's going against the fact that he thinks drafting a QB early is stupid. He's just pointing out that there should be more value given to them when there points per TD is higher which you should know already. But I do agree that he didn't give enough explanation as to why QB's shouldn't be drafted early. I would like to know more of his thinking on that one.
