QB as Flex - Where to draft?

Recommended Posts

10-team, snake, CBS scoring (1pt per 25yds for QB), non-PPR. I pick 10 & 11.

 

Active roster is QB, 2RB, 2WR, TE, DST, K, Flex (can be WR, RB, or QB)

 

I've never seen QB's as a flex option. How should this affect my draft strategy?

 

With only 2 active WR and QBs avaialble to flex, shouldn't I move all QB's up higher, since a 2d QB is now just as valuable as a 2d WR or 2d RB?

 

Any reason I would NOT want a QB @ Flex?

 

Any insight would be much appreciated.

I played about 50 leagues in the last 5 years that had the a QB flex as an option. We played 3 WR's though instead of 2 and were 12 team leagues.

 

Here is approx where the QB's went last year in my big money leagues. (Each ranged from $500 to $1,000)

 

I tell you the amount so you know the people drafting will have taken it seriously so you can gauge from it.

 

Draft 1

 

Brady 6, P-Manning 12, Romo 16, Brees 24 (total of 9 QB's in 1st 4 rounds) 22 QB's in 1st 8 rounds

 

Draft 2

 

Brady 7, Brees 11, Romo 13, P-Manning 15 (total 7 QB's in 1st 4 rounds) 17 QB's in 1st 8 rounds

 

Draft 3

 

Brady 5, Brees 11, Romo 18, P-Manning 20 (6 QB's in 1st 4 rounds) 18 QB's in 1st 8 rounds

 

Draft 4

 

Brady 9, P-Manning 12, Romo 13, Brees 20 (8 QB's in 1st 4 rounds) 18 QB's in 1st 8 rounds

 

Draft 5

 

Brady 10, Brees 15, Romo 17, P-Manning 20 (5 QB's in 1st 4 rounds) 17 QB's in 1st 8 rounds

 

Draft 6

 

Brady 7, Romo 9, P-Manning 13, Brees 15 (6 QB's in 1st 4 rounds) 19 QB's in 1st 8 rounds

 

 

This should give you an idea of what to expect.

 

I think people will be shy in your 10 man league of taking them in the 1st round except maybe at the end 8-10 range.

 

Someone will most likely get cute and go Brees/Brady at the turn.

 

As you can see last year it was consistent the top 4 QB's went in the 1st 2 rounds in all drafts.

 

I think you can expect the big 3 to go in the 1st 2 rounds in your draft (Brees, Brady, Manning)

 

Manning has a shot to fall to the 3rd maybe.

 

Hope this helped.

In that kind of setup, QB/QB is a viable strategy if you can get two of Brady/Brees/Manning. If only one is available, then I'd see whaty Rbs were there and weight the options between the RB and a Warner/Rodgers type.

 

Eitehr way, it's a 10 team league with shallow WR lineups, you'll have depth.

Thanks to all of you - this is excellent food for thought. Manning will be kept, but if Brees & Brady fall to 10 & 11, that would be interesting.

 

I should have mentioned I already have Matt Ryan as a 12th round keeper. Based on your comments, perhaps QB/WR or QB/RB if Brees or Brady slip seems to be reasonable.

I can see few scenarios given your league setup (shallow required WRs, QB as a flex, non-PPR) that would have me go WR early. Given you have Ryan already, your first two picks should be QB/RB or RB/RB most likely, and if both Brady and Brees are there, take them and look to trade Ryan, unless the avasilable RB talent is also high quality, IMO.
