This is a fairly high dollar league so this decision is fairly critical starting off my teams foundation
PPR League but has some big bonus' that lead to high scores especially for QB's (1st time in this league this is what I'm hearing).
Points provided to QB's;
* 6 pts per TD, 1pt per 25 yds, 1 pt bonus 200 yds, 2 pts 300 yds, 1 pt 350, 1pt 400, 1pt 450
RB's and WR's (points above 1pt PPR)
* 6pts per TD, 1 pt per 10yds (Rush and Rec), 1 pt 50 yds bonus, 2 pt 100, 1 pt 150, 1pt 200, 1pt 250
I have # 2 Pick in the Draft of a 10 man league. AP is going # 1
Am I crazy to consider Brees or Brady at # 2 GIVEN the Bonus structure!?!...
Breaking down '08 stats and using this scoring method, Brees would have had 7! games 30-40pts.. Averaging 26 points.
Neither MJD or Forte smell that.. Breaking them down WITH PPR and bonus' they still average 18 and 19 points..
If Brees or Brady go 4,500 plus with 30+ TD's, they will easily be top of the charts in terms of total points.. HOWEVER, at #2 going QB, I'm looking at 19 and 22.. giving me a Steve Smith/Boldin type WR and RB is a toss up depending on who falls into Round 2.
TL;DR - Will I be able to recover the points drop off going big # 2 with an elite QB, or am I still safer taking MJD/Forte and winning over average score in your opinions?
Thanks in advance and again link your question and I'd be happy to drop my 2 cents.
