With passing TDs being worth 6 pnts I would be suprised if either Brady or Brees would be there at 7. Im guessing you'll be looking at Cam or Stafford if you wanna take a QB at 7. No way Stafford is there at 18. As for the question I like Brees over Brady.
I drink because of the 1998 NFC championship game.
12 team big $$$ non PPR league - QB RB RB WR WR TE D K
QB: Rivers RB: Murray, Matthews, R.Bush, D. Brown WR: Julio Jones, Colston, VJax, Garcon TE: Witten, Gresham K: Kaeding DST: SEA
Ok I am on the same boat with the 6th pick in a 12-team PPR with 6 pts. for passing TDs. Most of the owners in my league are casual football guys. I am almost positive one of Brady or Brees will be available to me at #6. Is it a no brainer to take a QB here? Call me crazy, but I was actually going to take Ryan Mathews or possible CJ2K. I didn't realize how much difference the 6pts for pass TDs makes. I am insane not take QB here? Worst case scenario and top 3 QBs are taken, I will get either Foster, Rice, or McCoy
QB: Cam Newton, Colin Kaepernick RB: Jamaal Charles, Darren Sproles, Knowshon Moreno, Montee Ball WR: Jordy Nelson, Larry Fitzgerald, Vincent Jackson, Cecil Shorts, Justin Blackmon TE: Martellus Bennett K: Mason Crosby D/ST: Cleveland
I am new here, but I was going to take McCoy with the 3rd pick until I ran the numbers from last season as my league is .5ppr with 6pt TDs. Brady scored the least out of the big QB trio but that was still 100+ pts better than McCoy who scored the most out of the big RB trio, so I changed my approach and I am now taking Brady with the 3rd pick.

Don't think of it as Brady's total points versus a RB/WRs total points. Quarterbacks score more points than any other position in 99 percent of all leagues. If it's not a 2qb league, then Brady and McCoy's point totals are not comparable in a heads up manner. You need to compare Brady's scoring to an average qb starter in your league, so compare him to the worst QB starter (10th qb in 10 team leagues, 12 in 12 teamers, etc), then compare the top-3 RBs to an average RB starter (20th rb in a 10 teamer that starts 2 per, etc), and that point differential shows you something closer to the real value of the player.
If you want a quarterback, then take a quarterback. But in most scoring systems the top-3 RBs are worth more than a Brady/Rodgers because of the scarcity of heavy-workload/high performance running backs. It's just something to consider.
