re: 5th pick PPR league help!


I agree with your entire post shoe. Ill never draft a qb before the 4th, and even that's too high

re: 5th pick PPR league help!


I think it just depends. I've missed the playoffs every time I grab 2 elite rbs in my league. But the guys who have Brees, Rodgers, Manning, etc are usually right up there. I also don't like using avg ppg as monster games can skew that badly...especially for RBs. I just try to get as many top 3-4 guys at each position as I can. I'm definitely not taking two of the lower ranked "top" running backs towards the end of the first round in a non ppr league. If you take 2 second tier running backs you will then be taking 2 second or even third tier wide receivers and lower ranked quarterbacks. Just get as many elite players as you can.

Reaching for QBs, more often than not, hampers your team in the long run over a season IMO. I've


it could.

but the guy who picked Brees in the first round also made it to the championship.

he also had Adrian Peterson, who Brees also outscored by the way. And that is saying something considering how phenomenal AP's season was last year.

Who NO ONE expected to have such a monster year. That's the only reason the guy made it into the championship. Before the season, people assumed, at best, he would do half of what he did.

Going into the draft, no one thought AP would be the best RB of the season. Hindsight is always 20/20. It's true. Sometimes you get lucky and get 2 guys who are about to have the best fantasy season of their lives. But you can't expect that.

A big component of FF is luck. We all know that. I just have the opinion (this being my 10th year playing FF), that drafting RB first allows you the best chance of being successful.

Just like betting hard on pocket aces will give you your best chance of winning at poker. Sure, sometimes the guy you're sitting across the table from hits a set of 4s, but more often than not, you have the advantage.

Charles, Rice, or Megatron.

If you take a RB then load up on WR the next few rounds unless you can get Jimmy Graham on the way back.

I'm not disagreeing with you at all.

just found it interesting that some posters laughed at the idea of taking Brees early in a draft.

Take the elite qb because they are more consistent and do not burn you.

That is why teams with the top qb's tend to do well.

Brees will give you 20 plus a week.

Ray Rice could get you four points one week and 30 the next. That fricks you when your studs are not consistently producing.

re: 5th pick PPR league help!


I have tough decision to make. This year we pick where we want to draft based on total points scored from last season. I finished eighth. I don't see anyone with more points than me choosing to draft 8-12. So do I stay at 8 or move farther down to get my picks a little closer together? Last year I drafted 12th.


.5 PPR
5 point 100 yard bonuses for WR/TE/RB
5 point 300 yard passing
1 points of 25 yard passing
6 point TD.


EDIT: OP I take Rice.

Guarantee you they will go end of 5 to mid six in my league. Same stuff every year. There will be 7-8 qbs go before them. First group of 2 will go close together (Rodgers, Brady) then next group of 4 (Peyton, cam, tb12, Ryan) then you will see them go after stafford, who's probably in that 2nd tier of guys who go in rounds 4-5. Wrs fly off the boards in rounds 3-5 in my league, with the occasional qb, te, or rb mixed in

In those settings, if all touchdowns are six points, then Rodgers or Brees for sure.

re: 5th pick PPR league help!


In any league where all TDs are 6 points you've gotta go QB early, unless they nerf passing yards.

re: 5th pick PPR league help!


Some of you guys are missing the point here. It's not about who scores more points out of a qb and a rb, its how they stack up against other players of the same position.

Think of it like this:

Brees: 24 PPG
SJax: 8 PPG

OR

Romo: 20 PPG
Ray Rice: 14 PPG

Who would you choose?
