#1 pick, who do I go with?

Postby mexcaliber » Sun Aug 19, 2012 12:43 am

I have the #1 overall pick in my league and I need advise as to who should I select.
10 teams, H2H.
QB gets 6pt for TD. 3 bonus pts for rush/receive over 100 yards and throwing over 300 yards.

I automatically would select Foster or a RB but QB's do score big in this league. What do you guys think? RB or QB?
Foster, Rice or Rodgers, Brady???

The thing to remember about QBs scoring big in your league is that all QBs get these bonuses, and when you compare QBs to other QBs, the shift in points isn't as big as you'd imagine. I'd still be looking at a top-3 RB (choose your favorite from Foster/McCoy/Rice). 10 QBs had over 4,000 yards passing last season. Arian Foster averaged 141 total yards per game and Ray Rice averaged 129... You aren't getting that production from a 2nd round RB.

Don't get cute or outsmart yourself. Take a RB.

Agree here. Take a RB at 1. If it was PPR I would actually take Rice #1, but non PPR I say Foster

6pts per TD does start to skew things though. The gap between the big 4 (from last year) and the rest of the pack would be much larger, noticeably larger if it were 6pt per TD instead of 4. Whoever owns the QB(s) who hit the 50 TD mark in your league is going to be one happy man.
