You might do well taking Brady,Rivers or Rodgers early as your league scoring really is geared toward QBs. They'll likely score as much, if not more points as any RB.
Fantasy record last 2 seasons: 18-12 (HtH)
PPW: 95 (league average 90)
Championships: 1

That scoring is definitely slanted towards an elite QB. If you could land Rodgers or Brees, you'd be all set.

(Ten - RB)
2. (17) LeSean McCoy
(Phi - RB)
3. (24) Tony Romo
(Dal - QB)
4. (37) Jermichael Finley
(GB - TE)
5. (44) Santonio Holmes
(NYJ - WR)
6. (57) Percy Harvin
(Min - WR)
7. (64) Mark Sanchez
(NYJ - QB)
8. (77) Detroit
(Det - DEF)
9. (84) Plaxico Burress
(NYJ - WR)
10. (97) Adam Vinatieri
(Ind - K)
11. (104) Brandon Jacobs
(NYG - RB)
12. (117) Jordy Nelson
(GB - WR)
13. (124) Johnny Knox
(Chi - WR)
14. (137) Ben Tate

I understand the scoring is leading toward Qb's but there are stiil good Qb's after the first 3 or 4 that are going to put up numbers very close top the top guys. Unless its a 2 QB league I will never take a qb in the 1st round..............never! In fact I usually dont take a qb ubtill the 5th rnd, I would take one in the 3rd if it were someone like rodgers, but we all know thats not going to happen. The difference between a tier 1 and tier 2 qb is very small. The difference between a top tier rb or wr and a mid tier rb/wr can be huge. Ive drafted this way for MANY years and have had GREAT success, so im not about to change now. The teams that draft QB's in the first round almost always have a real weak rb2, call me old school but rb's win fantasy championships. Look at the winners last year and the year before that and you will find 95% of them had AP,Foster last year and Rice the year before. So if you want to draft a qb in the first rnd im sure the other teams will not complain. ;-D
