Draft Strategy Question....

Postby Broncaholic » Fri Aug 17, 2007 2:36 pm

I'm playing in a league with these starting requirements: 2QB 3RB 3WR 1WR/RB TE K DEF. (10 Teams)

Should I draft all running backs the first three rounds or the just the best available player?

Thanks

I would think you need a QB in the first 3 rounds since you start 2. I would probably take 2 RB's and a QB.

I would stick with whatever your "normal" strategy is. The added flex makes RB more important so I'd be looking to get at least 2 RB in the first 3 and to get 6 WR/RB by the end of the 6th. Yes you start 2 QBs but it's a 10 teamer and you can easily grab a 8 or 9 QB later in the draft.

The thing to keep in mind when you're dealing with a 2 QB league is that the normal rules of "scarcity" are changed from normal 1 QB leagues. Since there are only ever 32 starting QBs in the NFL, there are certainly a limited amount of those QBs who can actually be good for you to have on a weekly basis. A 10 team league makes it a little easier to grab a couple QBs in the mid rounds but you'll still want to be looking QB a little earlier just because QBs tend to fly off the board quicker when you have a draft like this. With the possibility of starting 4 RBs, I would probably look to grab at least 3 RBs in the first 5 rounds (at the very very least) and possibly a QB if one is available who is a decent grab there and 1 WR. I'd probably still start out RB/RB but then I'd be looking for best available RB/WR/QB with your next pick depending on what's available.
