Brady scored 462 FF points last year. LT scored 302. Brady averaged 28.9 points/game while LT only 18.9. I don't understand.... It looks to me that Brady would be a much better pick that LT. Would I be making a huge mistake if I took Brady with my first pick in the 4th spot??? Couldn't I still get decent RBs with my next 2 picks (21st & 28th)... then grab some WRs???
There is never a dumb question.
The thing that you have to look at is it is not as easy as comparing across positions. You have to look at the difference in scoring of QB1(Brady) vs QB10 (in a 10 team league this would be the last starter) and RB1 vs RB 20 (again last starting RB based on starting 2 RB for 10 teams). The difference in points is much greater in RBs than QBs, that is why RBs are more valuable and most agree that you can draft a QB in the mid to late rounds and still be competitive.
