Do RB and TE values go up or down with backup QB?

Postby bellings » Tue Sep 11, 2007 11:21 am

For the sake of argument, let's assume that a backup QB means a less skilled QB in running the offense and in throwing the ball.

How does that change the values for RB's and TE's? I'd assume that there would be a greater percentage of running plays and dumping it off to the TE, but will the less successful drives more than compensate for this and lower their values? Any thoughts?

I dont think it changes too much.

I usually like the #3 WR when a backup QB comes in. He is usually on the same page as the backup WRs.

A backup can either run the offense or he cant. If he cant, then usually no one on the team is worth much. If he cant, values dont change too much unless he is a different style of QB...say a hasselback vs Seneca Wallace
Oh, people can come up with statistics to prove anything, Kent. Fourty percent of people know that.

TEs go up a little, and the #1 wide goes up because the backup focuses on him more since the #1 is the best so kind of a safe option for him.

RB should be equal, he'd get more carries but i think defenses would focus the run more to even it out.
