HOw does a 2QB league format affect QB's value?

Postby fantasyfiend » Tue Aug 10, 2004 11:24 am

The title says it all.

I know QB's have very lil value in 1QB league format. but im in a duel QB league...where you must start 2. what does this do to the value of the QB position? does it become essential for me to take atleast one qb early... or should i remain patient, and still try to nab them 6th round and beyond?

ofcourse there's always an exception and i will draft a qb if they fall to far in the draft.....but i just want to know when it becomes essential to draft qb's .. in a 2QB league format.

since i traditionally dont draft qb's untill double digit rounds.

Thx

Well they become much more scarce, as the difference between the top 2 qb's and everyone else is much larger. I'd try to land a combo like Bulger and Brady...two guys who aren't extremely high on everyones lists and are ready to play right from the get-go.

QBs become much more important in a 2 QB format. I'd still grab that elite RB early.....round two is not too early to jump on the top tier of QBs.

I played in a 2QB league last year, and QB's were very important. Draft accordingly, you have a bit of flexibility now because players with big upsides like David Carr, Joey Harrington, Jake Plummer, Byron Leftwich start to look a lot more attractive in these types of leagues.

in a 2 qb league qbs become much more important and scarce. its hard to get a extremely good combo of qbs just like it is with rbs. you could get a good combo, but usually not a great 1.

2 qb leaguer here also, last year Manning, went 4th, & Mcnabb & Vick all went 1st rd,

i agree w the Bulger, Brady combo, thats what im shooting for.

im looking at RB, QB, RB, QB & try to snab some sleeper wideouts later on ;-D

wow...2qb format really seems to dramatically improve the qb value..

so it is wise to take 2 QB's with'n the first 4 -5 rounds of the draft?

if so, i really need to re strategize. i was thinking to still go with the RB, RB, WR, WR, TE, QB, (Best on board) strategy like i do in a 1 QB league format --always an exception, and flexible ofcourse---

but since you are more experienced (since you played in this league format before) i will take your advice.

In a 2-QB league, QBs are more important than your WRs. Stud RBs are still the most important position, but you want to make sure you get at least one top 10 QB or you can be totally screwed. After you get that 1 solid QB though, you have a lot more options on what you want to do with your picks.

They only thing you want to avoid at all costs is to wait too long before you draft your 2 QBs and a backup QB. Remember there are only 32 starting QBs in the NFL. So in some leagues, not everyone will have a backup QB for injuries and bye weeks. It doesn't hurt to steal a 4th QB also, someone will always be interested in trading for him. (exception: Drew Brees)

Ideally in a 2 QB format, you would want to end up with two top10 QBs (Brady + Bulger is the example a lot of ppl are using in this thread). But don't be afraid of drafting a risky #2 QB and #3 QB if you can snag some good RB and WR talent.

I do a league every year that starts 2QB. We draft this sunday. If anyone is interested I can post the results in here so you can see how the draft played out.
