I'm in a custom league with #1 pick. Rogers or Peterson? Is set up for QB's performance. td-6pts, extra points for 300,400 & 500 yds passing.I think Rogers but after that not sure of what next. It's a 10 team league. 9 players in game & 7 on bench. Any suggestions or reference material?

Thx

Top 10 QB's (in no particular order)

Rodgers, Brees, Manning, Brady, Newton, Kaepernick, Ryan, Stafford, RG3, Romo.

I'd rather pair AP with any of these than Rodgers with the 13th best RB. Unless you start 2 QB's every week that is.

You take Peterson and you don't think twice about it...even though the league is set up for QB performance.



In a ten team league you have pick 1 and then pick 20. That's a long time to wait to pick up an RB1. At the end of round 2, one of the top 3 QB's (Rodgers, Brees or Peyton) will still be available. Not much difference between these three IMO. If QB/RB is what you want with your first two picks, you'd be crazy to pass on AP.

The reason i posted this here because my league also gives extra points and rodgers seems like the right pick since he pretty much goes over three hundred the majority of the time and i dont trust forte

Russ and JS have this nailed! Any further proof look to my post to Rick under this same topic!

As for the Hijacker, if Forte is your best option at #4 in a 10 team league, there is something you are not telling us about so far as keeper status goes? While I like Forte in the right position, I would rather have an Elite WR at this point!

Russ and fellow Starter subscribers: Need some help with my draft.

1st, I'm in a 10 team non-PPR league. It's a 2 QB league and QB performance is emphasized. I want to load up on RBs & WRs but am afraid if I don't move on the QBs, the quality ones will be gone. (Typically draft 3 QBs so I have one as a backup for injury or streaming). But the tough part of the draft is that it is autopick and we don't know our draft position until right before the draft takes place.

Any ideas on how to work my draft list so that I get the best outcome?

Thanks in advance!

Just rank 10 QB's first. That way you will get one in the first. Then, rank 7 to 8 top RB's to get one in the second round.

You have to try and get a QB in the first or second round, and your second QB no later than the fifth.



I have been playing in a 2 Qb league for years. It's fun!!!!!!

Glenn 115747, you should make that it's own topic so it gets more exposure instead f being buried in someone else's. Your draft is all autodraft based on rankings at each position? You can't take anyone specifically yourself? I remember drafts like that and HATED them. My recommendation is to not play in something like that. Unless you can give the system round by round instructions about positions, rankings, etc, I wouldn't take part. Even then, who wants to go through that type of drudgery for something that is supposed to be fun?
