Who to draft at #4 in a 2 QB league?

Recommended Posts

I'm in a league where we start QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, TE, Flex (QB/RB/WR/TE).  So basically it's a 2 QB league.  I drew the #4 pick.

 

I think it's safe to assume Barkley and McCaffrey will be off the board top 3.  I'm probably looking at Kamara, Zeke or perhaps I go Mahomes.

 

What do you think?

Depends on scoring. Does the league handicap QBs with 4 point touchdowns or other scoring rules? If yes then I'd go with Kamara, unless you're confident the Cowboys will get things resolved with Zeke. In that case go with Zeke.

 

If QBs are scored the way they should be then you take Mahomes even if you picked #1, especially in a 2 QB league. Even with regression that guy is probably going to be a beast again with at least around 35 touchdowns and 4.2k - 4.5k yards. He'll pace all RBs. And if he has anywhere near the kind of season he had last year he'll pace them even with handicapped scoring rules.

6 point TD passes, -2 INT, and half PPR.

Yeah, definitely Mahomes. No hesitation. But that's assuming one of the guys in front of you doesn't take him first, which they may do. I would. But if they do maybe it'll mean McCaffrey falls to you if stupidity raises its head and takes Zeke instead.

 

On a side note, I know the Yahoo league we're in is half PPR and a lot of people like it, but I don't get it. Why not just go full PPR?

If someone takes Mahomes ahead of me, then I get either Barkley, McCaffrey, or Kamara.  There's no way I'm gambling on Zeke there.

 

I actually like half PPR.  Full PPR makes WR's and scat backs too valuable as compared to other RB/WR/TE.

I get that... but they are at least putting work in. It's good to see that rewarded, especially if they catch a lot of passes. It's really no different than drafting a slot receiver you know is going to get a lot of of comeback routes, check downs, etc.

 

But there's more than one way to skin a cat.

McCaffrey scored almost as many points in PPR as Barkley did so yeah... nice little consolation prize.

The league I won last year was a 10 team full PPR. I had the 8th pick. I went Barkley at 8 and CMC at 13. Easy money.

Isn't/wasn't that something like a combined 900 points between both of them?

Feel like you had to take Mahomes if he was there. I wouldn't cry over getting CMC, great consolation prize. Roster?

I was definitely going to take Mahomes but I was happy with the draft slot knowing I would get one of Mahomes/Kamara/Barkley/CMC.  I also ended up taking Devante Adams in the second round after he fell to me.

 

Here's my starting lineup.

 

QB - Mayfield

QB - Rothlisberger

RB - McCaffrey

RB - Montgomery

WR - Adams

WR - Amari Cooper

TE - Burton

DST - Chargers

IDP - JJ Watt

Adams/Mayfield/CMC. That's sick. If David Montgomery hits you are going to kill it.

Thanks.  I also have a decent stable of backup RB's with upside in case Montgomery doesn't hit.  I've got Miles Sanders, Peterson, Hyde and Ballage.

Yall drafted early. I'm in the same position.  Not in on Mahomes. He'd have to duplicate last season for me to take him at 4. And that ain't happening. 

 

I'll be going after one of the top 4 RBs that will include Zeke. My draft is the 31st. If Zeke isnt signed by then  DJ will jump up to 4 for me. 

 

@abenjami how many QBs were taken by your second pick? Assuming not many since you got Baker.
