Two Quarterback Strategy

Postby ViliTheWarrior » Tue Jun 15, 2004 6:16 pm

I just joined a league that allows for a quarterback to be used as a flex. Other than the flex: 1 QB, 2 RBs, 2 WRs, 1 TE, 1 DT, and 1 K. Its traditional scoring, and the last few years have had QBs rating near the top of overall individual scoring.

Anyone have any experience with this format (playing 2 QBs), and can share a drafting strategy? I figure if I go for 2 quarterbacks with my first 5 picks, the overall consistency of those two will outweigh my weak WR2 or RB2 I get later. Plus, there are so many less QBs out there, it will pay to grab two early.

What you guys think?

I have never played in a league like that, but I would think that you would probably have more success with a 3rd RB than with a 2nd QB. RBs tend to be more consistent performers than QBs (esp. when the QBs are 2nd tier).

I play in a league like this...no real strategy as to my drafting,I usually grab who I think is the best player out there.I'd say I get my 2nd QB by round 7.

I will say that most teams do play a 2nd QB at the flex spot.

Thanks, I guess I will have to take back what I said due to a basic lack of knowledge on the subject.

I think starting 2 QBs would have to be your best option, so unless you can grab 3 straight studs at RB, draft two solid QBs (not neccessarily CPepp, Manning type, but a pair of solid guys like Trent Green and Brooks) with your first five or six picks.

under your scoring system you say that QBs score the most points, so I would draft two QBs

I agree, I'd draft 2 stud RB with my first 2 picks and then go for a couple QBs. Green and Brooks will pan out very nicely this year and they could probably be had 5-7th rounds.
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!
