Zero QB revisited

Recommended Posts

In the early going of the season, the late round QB approach is KILLING ME. Yeah, you can start Tannehill and get similar production but you have to have balls of steel to do it and guess lucky virtually every week. It takes zero brains to pick one of these top-flight QBs and watch them light it up week in and week out. 

 

I pay enough attention that I can outdraft my league-mates on value in later rounds. Who cares that I get an extra RB or WR in round 4, 5, or 6 when they just get injured?

 

Just frustrated thinking ahead to the weekly grind at QB.....sigh.

I was thinking that Mahomes and L Jackson's stat lines today were a testament to not drafting a QB early.  As were the stat lines of guys like Josh Allen and Minshew.

yeah that's fair. Allen went early in some leagues - like 8th round - so he's not really late-round for me. 

 

Minshew fits into the Tannehill category for me. But who knows, maybe I need to just play those kinds of guys.

 

ETA: I think you're gonna end up being right - but I am hard tilting after going trubisky over tannehill in my main and having it cost me the W. #teamnosex

The QBs are putting up big numbers so having a bad one right now kills you.  I got Cam off waivers, but I usually do the same as you.  I started with Stafford, picked up Roethlisberger.  Which would have been ok, but a bad one right now hurts. I am guessing the games tighten up a little as things get more polished but no guarantee

I completely hear you.  I'm in 2 big money FFPC leagues and in one league Wilson dropped to us at 8.1.  In the other we have Stafford and Jones as a backup.  In the latter league we almost took Matt Ryan at a point and passed.   

 

Minshew was a diamond in the rough because he makes plays and he needs to throw a ton to stay in games. Not sure if going on the perceived upside with Daniel Jones was a good idea.
