Double Flex and PPR, who to move up in draft?

Postby wetbeaverlover » Wed Aug 13, 2008 2:35 pm

I am in a money league that has the following roster 1qb, 2 rb, 2wr, 2 rb/wr, 1 te, 1k, 1def. It is also a ppr league of 1 point per reception so guys like housh, welker, and mason are higher on my list. I was thinking the 2 flexes would make rb's much more valuable but then ppr would counter a little of that and would add to the wr value. Are rb's still much more valuable in this format? also, their are yardage bonuses of 300 pass = 5 points, 100 run/rec = 5 points

This is a RB heavy scoring system. Make sure to get your RBs early and often.

up until this year i would agree that it would be RB heavy...but i see no reason why you would need to start any more than 2 RBS given its PPR. if you are starting 4 RBs lets say, odds are the fourth one sucks. (now of course if you can get 4 good ones by all means more power to you)

but w PPR the flex positions could be more benefitial to fill w WRs.

as i was writing i decided to look into it a little. using the projections from footballdocs.com...which is what ill be using, and plugging them into thsi league setting(1 PPR, 1 pt-10 yd rush, 1 pt- 15 yd rec)....this comes out

RB - 25th ranked = 180 pts, 37 = 121 pts, 48 = 100 pts
WR - 25th ranked = 160 pts, 37 = 136 pts, 48 = 117 pts

so it looks like the RB3 get more points, but the WRs catch up and take over once you get to WR3-4 territory. and to think about it like this, if you roll with a RB3 and a WR3, you are a whole lot better than going w 4 RBs.

one more thing. the points for RBs drop off so much at the RB3 area, and the WRs dont, thanks to the PPr and there are just more of them. so i guess i would say to get 2 good RBs, a flyer RB, and load up on high reception WRs, bc odds are they will be filling your flex positions

Right, what I've been doing in mocks is getting 3 RBs early then picking up the WRs in rounds 4-8. It adds up to more points than if I start selecting WRs in rounds 2 & 3.

Great post. I use them because I play in about 5 different leagues with 5 different types of scoring and multiple sizes. I like to use them to help keep them straight. They helped me grab Braylon Edwards, Greg Jennings, and Adrian Peterson in almost all of my leagues last year. I didn't get AP in my auction league though. I chickened out when the bidding started getting a little high. DANG! That one was for big cabbage. Oh well, I will be ready this season. I have a few guys in the bag.

good post.
