I always like looking at the players (all positions) based off of 2008 production (I know you can see last years stats, with the league scoring in Yahoo at least)
Then sorting by overall points, you can see (going off of the top 10-15 players) which positions are favored with your scoring system. I've been in some leagues where the QBs are the 7 of top 10 guys... and with 2 QBs leagues that could be pretty huge.
2QB league I get one QB if its a top 5 guy in the top 2 rounds. Meaning if you can land Brees,Brady,Manning,Rodgers,Rivers/Warner do it. Then I would wait and get a lessor guy later. Meaning get your 2RB's 2WR's then QB. Most will jump and reach for QB's so dont play that game during the draft.
I might even stack up on RB's WR's early and go for Cassel,Palmer,Hasselbeck later on if you see QB's start flying of the board....just wait.
I can understand getting your QBs and RBs, in a 2 QB league, but I can't see the theory of stacking up on WRs early before adding your 2nd QB. Why pass up on a solid #2 weekly starting QB that got over 300 pts last year just to take a 200 pt producing WR? (Granted I know they are last years numbers but it shows the favoritism of the league scoring... in the top 15 there are 8 QBs, 5 RBs and 2 WRs (and top 5 are QBs)
You play week to week and I would think locking up another starting QB "early" is smart. Sometimes different league scoring calls for different drafting strategy.
WR is always the most deep position and there are legit starters in the mid rounds out there... plus there are always sleeper WRs on the FA market as the season begins. Harder to find those gems in QBs and RBs, unless there is a key injury.
Obviously with the 10th and 11th picks it will just be a matter of who is out there... but if there are a couple top guys there then I would take them. Could be in the form of going QB, RB, QB, RB in the first 4 rounds... just depends on how the draft goes. Then in rounds 5-6 you could look WR, WR.
That plan of attack could have your core starting lineup in the first 6 rounds and most importantly stacking up early on the point producing positions.
I am in a 10 team 2 Qb league (ppr as well) with 2 qbs, 2 rbs, 3wrs, 1 te, 1 def. We have 6 pts for all tds including passing. Under this format when should i consider taking Brees and Brady.
I have the 10th and 11th overall pick and was thinking I would take Brees and Brady with those picks.
What do you guys think? I have a hard time justifying that those two arent first rounders in our scoring system...
At 10 and 11 you might not get a chance at 2 out of the top 3 QBs. I would try to go RB QB in round 1 and 2 only if Peyton is there. If Peyton is gone then you'll have some serious value picks like Sjax and LT like 1 guy in my league was able to get at 10 and 11. Then go WR QB in rds 3 and 4. Of course this draft will be weird and you might have some great value picks in rds 5+ since most will try to get QBs early. I just recently had a draft and ended up with Rodgers and Ryan as starters. Trent Edwards is my QB3.
This is the 4th year of this league. I've done very well waiting on the QB's. Prior to this year, I never took a QB before the 6th round. This year I picked one in the 5th round. Obviously you can win picking QB's early, but I prefer to stock up on RB's & WR's while everyone else is taking their 2 QB's early. The reason? You posted it in your 2nd post. 7 of the top 11 scorers were QB's. That means that you can wait until other people start taking QB's, stocking up on RB's & WR's along the way, and still get a top QB.
In 2007, the year that Brady & Moss set records, one owner in the above league drafted from the 5 slot: Manning/McGahee/Brady/Roy Williams/R.Moss. He had both guys in their record breaking year. This team dominated the regular season, but lack of RB depth (and Brady & Moss slowing down towards the end of the year) finally caught up to them in the semis.
Like I said before, you could win going QB/QB....I just think your chances are a lot slimmer if you pass on the RB's and/or WR's that will be available in the 1st & 2nd rounds. Good luck!
