Go for the backs, you can pick up a decent QB late, last year i got culpepper late, due to his season before, but now everyone is high on him, so he's near the top.

You need to read the above posts. Yes, QBs score more on average, but 1-10 QBs are fairly close in total points, 1-10 RBs are very distanced, and it keeps going down. The difference between Manning and Brady is nowhere near the difference between Priest and Travis Henry. Also, with 1 pt per 5 yds rushing and a pt for reception it evens out QBs monster numbers. Gotta get an RB in round 1, and probably round 2 with an 8 team league. Period.


The difference between Manning and CPep is much larger under this scoring system than the difference between Manning and Brady or McNair would be in a standard points league. If you run the points, there's a huge point drop after the CPep/Manning/Vick trio.

The difference between RBs is much less in this scoring system as well, if my numbers are correct. Because of the point per reception, receiving backs gain quite a bit, which levels out the playing RB field after the LT2/Priest drop off.

Plus Priest had 70 catches last year. This just hurts the value of Corey Dillon, Jamal Lewis, Rudi Johnson, Travis Henry and definetly drops Alexander below Deuce.
