    WEBB?

    just picked up Joe Webb who has the designation of quarterback and wide receiver. If I play him in the WR spot, and he plays QB during the game, what kind of points can I expect? Will he get his QB points while I have him in the WR spot, or only WR points?
    Interesting!

    • its a risky play ,,,,,,,,,,,,webb is hurt himself and probably wont due much running and incerceptions could cause loss of points.

    • I picked him up too!!! I've got Woodhead too and he's listed as a RB & WR. McCluster(RB & WR) and Blair from the Jets is WR & QB. It's called good team management. DO IT!

    • You will get all the points he makes, but this thread could be much ado about nothing. Kyle Orton earned 36.88 points in week 12 and negative 0.86 points in week 14. There are no guarantees. Webb will be playing in an outdoor college stadium in freezing weather at night against a tough Chicago defense. He has thrown only 5 passes for 8 total yards in his NFL career. Anyone who uses Webb this week is assuming a certain amount of risk.

    • seems I remember Romo getting 11 yards receiving early this season- why doesn't somebody whine over that too- use Webb at your own risk, Chi D will likely limit his output so don't expect a whole lot out of Webb

    • You will get all points he scores. As a passer, as a receiver as a running back. Just like any other QB. The fact that you can start him in a WR slot, is the only difference.
      You can also lose points for interceptions, fumbles, etc.
      The fact that it's his first start, in the snow, with little experince makes it a REAL gamble. If you have a consistent WR that produces, you might be better off.

    • he will get qb points 2

    • Tough decision for this week against Chi. Next week a definate play. For all you cry babies there are 12 multi-classed players in the yahoo league.2 qb-wr's, 5 wr-rb's, 3 rb-te's and 2 wr-te's.If you are drafted as a wr and are fortunate enough to get the chance to be a qb that doesnt mean you wont be a wr again. If matt ryan went down the same thing would have come up. It pays for a team to draft multi talented players to better fill in after injuries happen.This year we have had our share. Woodhead started due to rb injuries. Mccluster started due to wr injuries. Webb as u all know due to qb injuries. What if Ramsey starts and Harvins out and Webb plays wr, should he get no points cause he not starting at qb? Come on man!!!

    • just like any other qb, he'll get qb points. if he runs (ala vick) he'll get rb rushing points, and if somehow he catches a pass, he'll get wr points.

    • I think it's cheating! Accordin to Yahoo! you will get QB points. According to the NFL and the Vikings home page Webb is only listed as as QB, not a WR.

      I'm playing someone who did that very thing and I don't think it's right at all. It's a snealy way to cheat and Yahoo needs to get their player positions correct!
