Can someone explain to me way you want to pick RB's and WR's in the first couple rounds? Peyton Manning HAS to be more valuable in a keeper league than a late 2nd rounder. What's the deal with this?
It doesnt matter that QBs score more - all QBs score more, so the 10th best QB is still good, and he can be had in the 6th rd. The problem is that there are so few premier RBs in the league that they become extremely valuable.
This is simply a rule brought on by the Value Based Draft strategy.
Oops - forgot to mention WRs. The Elite WRs are verry valuable because of the dropoff after them - thats why the top 4 will go in the first 2 rds. Their is a huge group of young, talented WRs that could break out, so after the top couple teirs, there should be no rush to go after WRs.
