[quote=“CMack124, post:13, topic:25625”][quote=“Charlotte2002, post:9, topic:25625”]I have the #1 pick, not sure what to do with it. I don’t trust any of the RBs, who I think are overvalued nowadays, especially in my league where QBs get 6 points for TDs just like WRs and RBs. There were 100 points between the 1st QB and the 10th QB, there 100 points between the 1st RB and the 24th RB.
I am strongly considering Tom Brady at 1.
6 points for a TD pass does throw a wrench in things.
Is it a 10 team league? In that format you pretty much have to get a QB with your 2nd pick if you pass on the first, but if there’s only 10 teams, I think you’ll be fine with the 10th best QB (or 9th or 8th, depending on how many get taken early, but 10th at worst). Would you rather have AP and, say, Eli or Big Ben, or would you rather have Brady and Steven Jackson/Ahmad Bradshaw/Peyton Hillis?
Personally, assuming a 10 team league you should be able to get a good enough QB when it comes back to you, I would take AP.
Heck, if you are the last guy to take a QB, you can even roll the dice again and NOT take one the second time through, banking on nobody else grabbing 2 QBs in their first 4 picks. Unless something breaks unusually, I like to load up on RBs/WRs and figure out QBs later, but I see the argument against that, especially in a 6 pt TD pass league.[/quote]
12 man league, so with the #1 pick, the 2nd level QBs will probably be the only ones available at #24. I think you can find good value deeper in the draft at RB, I mean look at the guys that put up good numbers, Blount, Tolbert, Bradshaw, Foster. The same can’t be said about QBs, while some pay put up good #s, they aren’t consistent week in and week out, and when you play head to head you need consistency in your lineup. A QB pulling an 8 point game is a sure loss.
