I joined a H2H league that starts 2 QBs, 2 RBs, 2 WRs, and 1 TE. There are 10 teams.
Then there are two flex spots for a RB/WR and WR/TE.
Also starts a DEf and a kicker.
The scoring system is somewhat modified because passing TDs are 6 points as opposed to 4. Rushing and receiving TDs are also 6.There is no bonus for distance.
There are the standard Yahoo points for yardage. (1 for 25 each passing, and 1 for each 10 rushing or receiving).
Given this scoring system, particulalry starting 2 QBs, how does this impact draft strategy? It seems to me that QBs will move up a good deal because you need twice the amount, and they also get 6 as opposed to 4 points for passing TDs. It also seems that WRs may be slightly more valuable because they are eligible at 2 flex spots.
I would grab a QB a lot earlier in this format than I would for say only 1 QB starting. If you can grab a Brees/Rodgers/Brady/Manning/Warner early and then grab a Schaub/McNabb/Romo/Cutler not too far later, you'll be in good shape. WRs are also valuable, so grab a top QB and then focus on WR and RBs. There will be many serviceable QBs on the board in rounds 5-8...
Yes it does, the typical draft strategies go out the window. If up have the first pick and this sounds like a non-ppr, take AP and at 20 and 21, grab one (or both) of your QBs. The reason I say both because you could get more points out of two Tier 1 QBs as opposed to a QB/Tier 2 RB or even a QB/Tier 1 WR situation, but its your call. Good luck.
Ummm, with the first pick I wouldn't take LT, maybe a few years ago, but Peterson is the clear cut #1 right now. I'd take Peterson and then at 20 and 21 look to get a wr and qb with those picks. I wouldn't reach to take any qb's at 20 or 21 if a big run goes on qb's before your pick. I always tell people to go and rank all of your players, stick with your rankings and don't get caught up in any position runs while drafting. Good luck.
In a 2 QB league with pass TDs worth 6 pts, I would grab Brees with the first pick. Since you start the same number of QBs as RBs and WRs, this makes them elevate in value. In this format, most people should be drafting QBs with 1 of their first 2 picks so you will be able to grab some nice RBs at 20 and 21. This is the one scenario where you draft a QB in the first and there should be no second guessing it. If you wait until 20 or 21 and everyone in front of you chooses to go with a QB, you will be in bad shape when it comes back to you in the 2nd.

i like this idea, but it has a flaw, they start 2 QBs and then either 3RB and 3WR or 2RB and 3WR... i still say ADP with the first overall pick and then go for a QB with the 20/21 slot along with the BEST RB or WR available, BUT if lets say something along the lines of Rodgers/Manning/Warner are available grab both at the 20/21 slots... if only one of those is then grab one and the best RB or WR available...
Thanks for all your posts. They have really helped me think this through.
My present plan is to take two QBs at picks 24/25. I figure I can get two of these 6 QBs: Brees, Brady, Manning, Rodgers, Rivers and Romo.
Because there will be 22 picks after I pick at 25, I don't expect that all 6 would be available coming back. I expect there to be a mini-run on QBs in rounds 2-3.
I think that there is a bigger drop of in talent between the top QBs than the WRs. I may be able to get Jennings at 24/25 and pair him with a QB. However, I'd have to take a QB at 48/49.
If I take two QBs at 24/25, I can get a WR like Ochocinco, Edwards, Anthony Gonzalez, Vincent Jackson, or Edwards. The drop off between Jennings and Ochocinco is not as great as the drop-off between, let's say, Rivers and the QBs who will be left at 48/49 like Schaub, Ryan and Cutler. This is especially so given that passing TDs are worth 6 points rather than the Yahoo default 4.
