I'm in a 12 team 2 QB PPR Redraft league (starting positions, excluding the 10 IDP are 2 QB, 2 RB, 4 WR, TE, 2 W/R/T). Because there are 12 teams each drafting 2 QB's, this draft scenario places QB's at a huge premium and makes the top 10 go off the board in the first 2 rounds. . I have 6th overall pick and am debating how to go about my draft. I'm thinking the top 5 will go one of two ways:
a) Brady, Peterson, Brees, Manning, MJD b) Brady, Peterson, Brees, MJD, Fitzgerald
What should I do at 6? Consider the severe scarcity of QB with 12 teams x 2 qb and the scarcity at WR given 12 teams start 4 WR
a) Take Forte? This would mean taking a Qb in round 2 19th overall (I'd probably be able to get McNabb, Schaub or Ryan here no problem), OR snagging a 2nd tier WR like Roddy White, Smith, Wayne, Jennings, Colston, Boldin or Bowe and ending up with a QB like Cutler, Palmer or Cassel in round 3 at 30.
b) Take Rodgers/Manning (if he somehow falls to me at 6 which I doubt he will)? This would likely mean either taking a WR at 19th overall which would probably be Smith, Colston, Bowe or Boldin OR taking a RB that dropped to 19 like Slaton, Gore, Barber or Westbrook and then settling for a WR like Bowe (best case), Ocho Cinco, or T.O.
c) Take Fitzgerald? This would mean taking a QB like McNabb or Ryan in rd 2 at 19 and a RB like LT, Jacobs, Kevin Smith or Pierre Thomas as my #1 rb at 30.
THE OTHER OPTION WOULD BE TO GO RB/WR OR FITZY/RB AND THEN QB, QB IN RD 3 AND 4
JF, I moved this post to the proper forum, you will get some answers here rather then in article discussions.
I think you have 4 options to consider. Forte, AJ, Moss and Manning. I believe Moss and Manning can lead their position in points at the end of the year so those are my 2 choices. Wiht it being a 2 QB league, I would probably take Manning but hoenstly, I have limited experience in 2 QB leagues.
that aside, i'd wait on QBs. with a league that can start 4 RBs, and 4 WR's, especially one with PPR, you've got a premium on skill position players just as much as you do on QBs. admittedly, the pool to draw from is smaller, but the production dropoffs between tiers (in my opinion, anyway) are lower. i think you can go RB/RB, RB/WR, WR/WR, or WR/RB taking best player available (in this case, i would grab forte in a heartbeat and follow him up with the best RB/WR available) and then fill out your QBs in later rounds.
