Draft Strategy help- 10 team Redraft- non ppr- WHIR

Postby KELLYLEAK » Sat Aug 11, 2012 3:43 pm

Need some advice. I'm in a 10 team, redraft, standard league. Non-ppr. I have the first pick. I've done fantasy football before but never in a standard league without ppr, never been in a league that requires a TE, and also never one with a flex position. Any help is appreciated. WHIR

1. What kind of strategy does this point system favor?
2. Should I consider Rodgers at # 1 overall over a RB or wait until later for my QB since it's only 10 teams?
3. Also are RBs generally better than WR for your flex position?
4. Any suggestions on when to go for a TE?

Starting Lineup is QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, TE, FLEX(RB or WR), DEF, KICK

Scoring is
1 pt every 10 yards rush/receiving,
1 pt for every 25 yards passing,
all TDS are 6 pts,
ints and fumbles are -2
bonus pts over 100 yards rush/receiving = 3 pts
bonus pts over 300 yards passing = 2 pts
bonus pts over 400 yards passing = 5 pts
bonus pts +50 yards TD - rushing/receiving/ passing= 2 pts

1. The scoring system favors a good quarterback and running backs with 6 points for all touchdowns.
2, I would take one of the top three running backs at number one overall. I prefer Ray Rice over the other backs. You can get a good QB in the 2nd round.
3. They are better because they are more consistent. I would look to target players like Ben Tate, and J-Stew in the middle to later rounds for your flex position.
4. If Graham or Gronk are there in the third round I would take one of them. If not I would wait to grab Aaron Hernandez in the middle rounds.
Thanks Franchise Fan for the sig!

I'd go with RB first, probably Ray Rice. With your 2nd & 3rd round picks, I'd probably go RB again and QB (hopefully Stafford or Newton will be there .. if not, consider picking a top WR and punt until the next round to grab maybe Romo, Rivers or Ryan).

I don't worry about WRs much in this system. I go RB heavy at the top of the draft and I also wouldn't mind take a stud TE earlier than usual. With only 2 starting WR spots you will easily be able to find 2 good ones (especially in a 10 teamer), but there's still only a handful of truely elite TEs, getting 1 of them while people are taking WRs is a good idea. I'm talking about Gronk/Graham/Gates. The others, there isn't much seperating them from each other in non-PPR, but getting one of those 3 gives you an edge imo, if you don't get one of those guys don't reach, the TE position is deep as hell, take WRs then and wait a little.

In a 10 team league I'd love to be the last guy taking a QB. If I can get a Phillip Rivers/Matt Ryan combo as the 10th/11th QBs off the board, and have a totally stacked lineup elsewhere, I'd be extremely pleased. I think there's a huge dropoff after the top 11 ranked, but if the first 9 guys have a QB they aren't going for a backup before filling their lineup, take advantage of that and get some value later.

I would definitely go RB first...
