It sucks that I am mock drafting against randoms who dont have the same scoring system that my league does.
With heavy weight towards QBs who throw 3+ TDs a game, I am thinking I may get lucky to get someone at 2/12 or 3/1 (perhaps later at 4/12 or 5/1) who can equal what Vick can do from a points perspective. The only tradition I am holding onto a little too steadfastly is the need for a RB that doesnt split much time. Thats why I am leaning towards AP at 1/1.
The scoring in this league is pretty ****ed up, and I want to take advantage of any opportunity I can to get players who are potenitally well-suited to the scoring. Which is why Vick is tempting.
My draft position doesnt make things any easier. Its gonna suck having to wait 22 picks before I get to go
Hmm.. Take AP and pass on the QB @1/1. Especially Vick. Phily's line looks terrible and he is no longer playing for a job.
If I was picking 2/12 and dead-set on a QB... options will be out there. Brees & Rivers are just under that range, you could get lucky. Rothesburger has been going about 28ish from what I've seen, which means he'll be there, but you risk over-paying. I don't know how comfortable you are with Peyton and his injury but he falls about spot-on where you'll be picking. You could either snag him then another in rd 6-8 just in case you need him covered for the first few weeks, or take a different position.
