If you had the opportunity, would you pick any of these same-team QB/WR tandems?

Culpepper/Moss
Manning/Harrison
Vick/Price
Hasselbeck/Jackson

Personally I don't like to put my eggs in the same basket.

So if i had the choice id rather go Cpepp/Harrison or Manning/Moss.

If I had to pick it would be Culpepper and Moss. Moss is a superfreak and Culpepper would be getting everything Moss gets. I also like Manning and Harrison but not as much. I wouldn't do Vick and Price. Price has yet to convince me that he can be a #1 wideout.

I would take Cpep and moss any day on my team... Manning and harrison would be too streaky for my liking... You also forgot McNabb/Owens how could list Vick / price and leave them off...

We debated this topic in Great Debates just recently. Here is the link:

http://www.fantasyfootballcafe.com/foru ... hp?t=66329

Overall, I think a very good point was raised in these debates -- it may be sexy to get Culpepper and Moss, but remember that you'll be taking them with the first two picks in most leagues. This means that you'll be relying on middle round picks to pick you up on weeks that Culpepper and Moss struggle.

However, taking QB/WR combos later in the draft (Pennington/SMoss, Favre/Walker) give you a better chance for success since on big weeks with the combos, you'll kill people. When they have a down week as a duo, you have your first, second and third round picks there picking up the slack.

tandems are overrated....in the balance of statistics....having a harrison/manning tandem, or a culpepper/moss tandem...is identical to a moss/manning or a harrison/culpepper.

receivers have big days while that same QB struggles....or vica versa

i would just draft best on board, and not let something like tandems factor in...its waste of time..and null.

Well, here's the order I would want them:

1) C-Pepp/Moss
2) Manning/Harrison
3) McNabb/Owens
4) McNair/Mason
5) Hass/D-Jax
6) Bulger/Holt
7) Vick/Price
8) Penny/Santana
9) Brooks/Horn
10) Farve/Walker


This list goes on and on

Considering that all those QB's have to be drafted early, I doubt I'd end up with any of them.

It really would be tough to end up with one..I had to put mine together over the years, and it may be time to break mine apart soon with Harrison getting up there in age a bit.

That said I have been very please with how it has worked so far. I think Culpepper and Moss would be a better one to have, but love how when Manning explodes, Marvin does too...

The key is to have enough solid players to carry you in other positions when the hookup doesn't have a great day..

Consistency is the key in FFBL. Give me a team that scores 90 every week rather than one that oscillates between 120 and 60. QB/WR "hookups" will hurt you in the long run.
