The diversity of leagues is one aspect that makes fantasy football so much fun. Some people like the larger leagues, while some like the smaller ones. The value of respective players varies widely with the differences in scoring and starting lineup. It is not advisable to use standard draft strategies in the non-standard leagues. This is especially true with leagues which require two quarterbacks in the starting lineup. An entirely different strategy is essential to make the most of the draft. This article will look at ten-team leagues, starting two quarterbacks, and utilizing PPR scoring. We will examine strategies specially-designed for these leagues to best attack the draft and get the most for your roster. These will help you form a new strategy for your league.
Down to basics, what are the differences I should know about the two-quarterback leagues?
a. The biggest question is how to value quarterbacks in comparison to other positions. In leagues that start two passers, even the most average quarterbacks are worth as much as good running backs and receivers. It is difficult to balance gaining studs at other positions while still addressing quarterback. A team with two strong quarterbacks has a distinct advantage. As a general rule, it is best to only draft elite players at running back or wide receiver over starting quarterbacks. So, this means you should only take the top four running backs (e.g., Todd Gurley, Le'Veon Bell, David Johnson, and Ezekiel Elliott) or the top wideouts (e.g., Antonio Brown and Odell Beckham) over the quarterback position in the first two rounds. The depth at the quarterback position will make it easier to take running backs and receivers in the early rounds. Rob Gronkowski is the lone tight end worthy of consideration early in fantasy drafts and even he is not a lock to be selected over the more mediocre of passers. The VBD (Value-Based Drafting) values below will show balance in value (VBD) between positions. In one-quarterback leagues, the position is devalued tremendously due to so many viable players at the position. In two-quarterback leagues, there is a balance between positions.
