In a 10 team draft, standard scoring, when should Tom Brady come off the board. The reason I ask, I am in a 10 man keeper league, my keeper is Ray Rice and have the 10 and 11th picks since i won the Championship last year. Do you think Tom Brady with one of my first two picks(10,11) would be wise assuming Rodgers, Brees and Manning are off of the board? My next pick would not be until 30 and 31. Thanks guys!
No chance would I draft Brady there. I don't have a top 200 done up but quickly looked and 20 and 21 overall is Stewart and Greene. Other options are White, Marshall and Matthews. Brees is ranked 26th. Going over to the calculator Brady is currently going off the board at 3.08.
With each team keeping 1 player that takes 12 off of the board. Brady should be taken somewhere in the 3rd or 4th of most drafts which would mean he could go in the 2nd or 3rd of yours.
If Brees or Rodgers is available I might take one of them but the QB's are pretty deep. You still have the top 3 but the top 3 are not as far apart from the next 5 as in past years. I would still try and grab the best WR and RB available. Even WR WR wouldn't be bad if you got 2 top 5 WR's and the RB's ran hard in the first.

Take the best available RB's and or WR's
Thanks for the feedback. Each team is keeping one player. So essentially the 10 and 11th picks is the 20th and 21st players off of the board. Make sense? I just feel its imperative to grab a top notch QB like Brees, Manning, Rodgers or Brady because I would need to wait to 30 and 31(essentially 40 and 41) till I pick again. I am going with a top notch RB with one of my first picks to pair with Rice but the WRs available really don't impress me. Moss, Fitz, AJ and Wayne will all be off the board before I even pick. That just leaves D. Jackson, Calvin, Marshall etc...
If Brees or Rodgers is there, take one of them... that's pretty good value for either player at the 20th slot. But I would bet that both are gone by the time it gets to you, so it's probably a moot point.
I don't think it's imperative by any stretch to take a QB; I think you would be making a mistake because you would be reaching for anyone not named Drew or Aaron.
At least to me, there are 2 top tiers of QBs that total 7 players. Brees/Rodgers, then Manning/Schaub/Rivers/Romo/Brady. These 7 represent the potential to finish top-3 with the highest "floor" (or low end numbers)...
So in a 10-team league, 70% of the teams will get a quality starting QB. So go RB/WR or RB/RB or WR/WR at your picks, then look at a Rivers/Schaub/Brady at your 3.10/4.1 swing.
i have a similar league and i think Brady will go late 2nd or early 3rd in it. You might be able to get Brees or Rodgers or Peyton at the turn. i dont think any of the 4 would be a terrible pick there but you could get Brady a little later. can you trade down in the 2nd? worst case scenario, you take a top WR/Rb off the board early, wait till the comeback and settle for Rivers/Romo/Schaub which isnt as much of a dropoff as the WR/RBs will be at that point. thats why everyone says wait on your QB.
