There are 9 QBs...you may think wow...thats not that much different...but leagues typically start double or more RBs than they do QBs.
By your projections you can wait and take the 9th QB off the board and still get a top 25 player locking down your one QB spot.
Exactly. You can take a QB in the 2nd or 3rd round or you can take one in the 6-8 rounds and get one that will likely score within 5 points per game of the absolute best fantasy QB. Last season in leagues that had 25 yds/pt and 6 pts/TD, the #12 QB only averaged 6 points per game less than the #1 QB.
Most standard leagues now will start 2 RBs and 1 RB/WR flex spot which means you can start up to 3 RBs...plus you'll need backups. Do the math on that in comparison to needing 1 QB and 1 backup which means 24 QBs when there are 32 in the league.
