Sorry! I'm just so excited and I can't hide it! Around here the celebration was on par with VE-day and VJ-day. I get real football for the first time since Ron Turner's tour with Erik Kramer. Real screen passes! A mobile quarterback! And the chance to convert on third down! WOOT! WOOT!

Now if we can just get Devin a brain....

OK... and I get a timeout for using too many exclamation marks.

Kyle was serviceable but Cutler's #s from his first three years put him in exclusive NFL qb company.

Sounds good.

I'll look for an approach of

Round 1: Tier one RB
Round 2: Tier one QB
Round 3: Tier two RB
Round 4: Tier two QB
Round 5: Tier three RB, Tier two WR (if available)
Round 6: Depending on your previous pick RB or WR

I'm looking to set some rankings/projections. What resources do you use (website/magazine/etc.) Or do you base a lot of your projections on your own instincts? I figure the common approach is to use your own instincts along with the guidance of another source.

RB = All offensive line and injury proneness.

agreed

I generally use any rankings I can get my hands on. I really used to like Melnick and Greco before they formed Fantasy 911. Now anything useful costs money but they used to have football nailed. Now I just read everything I can and compare and contrast the rankings, set my tiers, and have to trust my knowledge of the players.

32 starting QBs in the league? i'd take the best QB available in the 1st, and look for a decent one with job security whenever it gets there, probably around #20 QB. don't know when that would be, never been in a 2 QB league. Someone like Flacco, Campbell, or Garrard. Noone that will light up the stat sheet, but someone that won't lose the job. If you get stuck with a #2 QB ranked around 25, you'll have to pick up a backup or 2 because they'll probably lose their job. If you get 2 reliable guys, you can use those picks in the later rounds to get the Tim Hightowers, Pierre Thomas's, Chris Johnsons, and Darren Sproles. All drafted in the last 2 rounds (19&20) of my 12 team league last year. It's pretty much a crapshoot (RD 17 and 18 saw aundrae allison, jacoby jones, and shaun macdonald go off the board), but if you can nab 1 or 2 (i was lucky enough to draft hightower and thomas with my last 2 picks, ended up taking 1st place and won the points total 6 of the 13 weeks in the regular season), then you're in great shape.

If you get a pick in the top half of the draft, and go with a RB/WR, then you'd have to wait til picks 25-32 (only the end of round 2 in a 16 team) for your second pick, and your best options probably wont be better than the 10 or 15th best QB. Maybe a Hasselbeck/Cassel/Delhomme. Then you almost have to take another QB in the 3rd or you'll be waiting til pick 57-64 to get your QB2. then you're probably looking at around the 25th or so QB.

Again, i've never drafted a 2QB league, so i could be way off base. but i wouldn't take a chance and wait on QBs. I say grab an elite QB, and then you can atleast sit back and wait to see what's left and when you can grab a QB2.

Last year i had the 12th pick in my mostly standard, PPR league. Moss and TO at the turn (1st/2nd WR's taken). 3/4/5 i got Jacobs, T.Jones, L.White. Those would have been picks 36/37/60. You can still get pretty good talent at RB in what would be the 4th round of your league if you do your research.

I'd say go QB-RB/WR-RB/WR, then see what QBs are left.

Thanks for the input. Just to re-iterate for new readers in case they wanna help..

16 teams, H2H
Roster Positions: QB, QB, WR, WR, WR, RB, RB, TE, W/R, K, DEF, DL, DL, LB, BN, BN, BN, BN

Offense
Passing Yards 25 yards per point
Passing Touchdowns 6
Interceptions -2
Rushing Yards 10
Rushing Touchdowns 6
Reception Yards 10 yards per point
Reception Touchdowns 6
Return Yards 20 yards per poin
Return Touchdowns 6
2-Point Conversions 2
Fumbles Lost -2
Offensive Fumble Return TD 6

Freak, I noticed you mentioned something about taking WR. I draft 16th overall in this league. I was thinking of going QB/QB/WR/WR in the first 4 rounds. What do you guys think of that?

you'll likely get a top notch QB @ 16, Brees/Peyton/Brady. you dont need 2 of them. While it would put your team a notch above the rest, it could easily kill you. Your starting RBs and WRs would be far less than most others. Take Brady/Brees, and Bernard Pollard could end your fantasy season in the first quarter of week 1. I'd look QB/WR on the first turn. you'll probably have 10 RBs gone, and 2-3 QBs and WRs. I'd assume Brees and Fitz are gone by then. That means you're looking at something like Brady/Peyton and Moss/Calvin/Andre. Any duo out of them would be great to anchor your team around. Brady and Moss probably wont be setting records again, but a 35-15 season is very reasonable if they stay on the field.

Then on the 2nd turn (48/49) i'd look RB/RB. Since it's not a point per reception league, and if you use a pick on the first turn on an elite WR, you dont need 2 WR just yet. plus if you wait til the next turn, you're looking at picks 80/81 before you get your first RB. you need atleast 1 RB after the 3/4 turn...i'd prefer both, especially if you already have an elite QB and WR.

Now this is all dependent on what's left on the board at the 1/2 turn. If the top 3-4 QBs are gone by the time the 1/2 turn comes around, you might be better of going RB/WR or even RB/RB. With 4 QBs gone, you'll be getting a top 8-10 RB, and a few elite WRs will be on the board. RB/RB and your set at the position and can fill out the rest of your starting lineup before looking for a backup. Strategically, probably the easiest way to fill out your team. then you'd be looking at QB/WR the 3/4 and 5/6 turns. As long as you can stay awake for the half hour between each pick, drafting shouldn't be too stressful.

I love that last pick. Drafted 12th last year. Moss/TO, T.Jones/Jacobs, L.White/DMac, Gonzalez/Minny D, DeSean Jackson/Bryant Johnson, Slaton/Ray Rice...remember the draft like it was yesterday. And i can't forget Pierre Thomas/Time Hightower on the 19/20 turn, last 2 picks of my draft were the best 2 picks.
