Depends on how good you want that position to be. You could grab Brees in the 2nd. Brady or Manning late 2nd early 3rd. Rodgers, Warner, or Rivers in the 4th or 5th. Or you could wait until the 7th or beyond for Mcnadds, Roth, Schaub, etc

In FFball you are rarely solid at every positon unless you get lucky in the draft. My favorite part about it is you can choose to build your team how you like. You might have a late 1st round pick and want to be strong at WR by grabbing Fitz / Moss. You'll suck at the RB spot but you can build your team that way if you want.

I try and get as much value out of each pick as I can. I hate following a run after several people have just grabbed the guys I wanted. I tend to think how can I benefit here by this run of 8 WR's. I'll take a 2nd RB instead to maximize value or maybe grab a top 3 Qb.

What you have to decide is when you feel you are getting the best value. Brees in the 2nd isn't value. You might get some value out of Brady or Manning as early as they are going. But if they don't pan out and you committed a high draft pick you will have a long uphill climb to those who got value out of their picks.

By value I mean grabbing a top 5 QB in the 7th round instead of wasting an early pick on one of the top 3.

The same as any other year...not before the 6th round, but usually later.

The same as if passing TDs are worth 500000 pts.... Changing the value of passing TDs does not change the rankings of QBs to other positions. The only time a QB should be elevated in value is if the starting requirements are 2 QB. ;-D

I would and I do. When passing TDs are worth the same as rushing/receiving TDs, that makes the QB more valuable than the RB/WR position. A star QB is going to throw 30+ TDs on the year. A star RB may get 15 TDs on the year. My draft strategy in my 6-pt TD league is to grab the top RB I can in the first, top-WR I can in the 2nd, and then look to grab Manning or Brady if still available in the 3rd. If not, then I target Rodgers in the 4th or 5th (I gotta do more mocks to see where these guys are actually going, but you get the idea).

The other benefit to this is that in my $$ league, weekly high score is awarded $25. Having a consistent, sure-fire, stud at those 3 positions goes very far towards ensuring your competitive for that prize each week. And a QB who can regularly throw 2TDs each week and often throw 3 TDs? That's money! RBs and WRs can't compete with that.

Oh boy here we go with this debate again. A 6 point TD DOES make the QB position as a whole more valuable in relation to the other positions. It is not that big of a difference but it does matter.

I hope you are kidding with this. Lets say both of our QBs average 300 yards a game but my QB averages 1.01 TDs a game and yours averages 1 TD a game. That 5000 point difference is a lot bigger than anything the rest of your team can make up assuming the rest of the scoring is standard. I could start the QB and bench the rest of my team and still pound your team into the dust.

If you can't see how increasing point values for a stat specific to one position doesn't increase that position in value relative to the other positions, then there is just no hope for you.

What happened in 2007 when I drafted Brady in the 7th and guys were grabbing Manning in the 2nd round? I believe Brady averaged more TDs per game even though he wasn't "projected" to at draft time.

Who is to say that it won't happen this year with a QB drafted in the 7th? Changing the point value should not warrant drafting a QB any earlier in terms of value for the QB position. You still draft the guys in the same place based on your projections for them simply because they are "projections"....
