    Draft help Please!!!!

    14 Team H2H PPR (0.5) league

    QB, WR, WR, WR, RB, RB, TE, W/RB/TE, K, DEF, 6 BN

    Scoring settings:

    QB = 6 pts per TD, 1 pt per 25 passing yds, Bonus 5 pts = 300yds

    WR/RB/TE = 6 pts per TD, 1 pt per 10 yds, Bonus 5 pts = 100yds

    How should i be drafting?

    I have done alot of Mocks and the ones I have done where I grab an Elite QB do not turn out too great for the rest of my team. However, the Mocks i have done where i took 2 stud RB (McCoy and Gore) i was able to get a Mike Wallace/DeSean Jackson as my WR 1 as my 3rd pick. 4th pick i can also go for another WR (Welker) or get a F.Jones for my flex.

    Any suggetions would be much appreciated.....

    I know i have helped many of you and hope you will do so in return!!!!!

    • last year in our league arian foster had something like 330 points and brady had 275 i think. saying this its much harder to get an elite rb rather than an elite qb.


      your points look similar to ours, and if you have a brady or rogers or rivers your looking really good.

      Id defintaly take an elite rb first and try to get an elite qb in the second rd depending on when you pick. Rb's are so much harder to come by and the fall off from 1st tier to 2nd tier. are huge whereas the fall off from 1st tier qb's to 2nd tier are alot smaller.

      if i had 3rd overall pick, id rather have AP, CJ, Jamal charles, or Foster over having rogers. and in the second round id hope rivers was there, or a stud wr, but because you have PPR you can get away with scooping up pretty sexy wr in the 3rd and 4th.

      here are 2 examples

      If i had a shot at rogers in 1st round and gore in 2nd id jump on it

      if i got foster in the first and the rivers was there in 2nd id jump on it,

      If i was 7th and later in first id take DMAC and then in the second take a calvin johnson or larry fitz if possible, dont take a guy like welker that high, welker has a ceiling, calvin can potentially grab 18tds this year.

      after that, id have to take an elite wr in the 2nd if there was no elite qbs left over and take stafford a little later, stafford will be a FREAK this year if he stays healthy. make sure you take a good backup tho like freeman or bradford.

      in short, dont stretch for a guy like roethlisberger in the second, you can have the same output from schaub or freeman in the later rounds, BUT TRY TO GET STAFFORD LATER

    • That's a tough one. In a 14 team league you can't overrate a good QB. You could probably get Manning, Brady or Rivers depending on where you are in order in the second or third round. Of course, there are some QB's who may have decent if not break out years including Bradford, Stafford or even Colt McCoy now that he's in a much more controlled West Coast offense. And you could pick up any of those three very late in the draft.

      Also, I've seen the trend that Kyle Orton goes late and despite his late season play last year he actually did really well. Kevin Kolb could also be a break out player and he could go late.

      I've never played in a 14 team league so I'm not sure how that would shake out but when all is said and done I think getting your 2 stud RB's first is a good idea.

    • Starting RB's and WR's are going to be snapped up fast in a 14 team league, so don't even think about wasting early picks on QB's or TE's

    • I think you answered our own question. our second strategy obviously turned out better, so go with that.

      Personally I stuck to a RB, RB, WR, WR, RB, WR, QB strategy this year and I like my team.
