Default Fantasy football draft ?

If you were in a custom scoring league that had QB's normally scoring the most points week in and week out, what QB would you pick with the first overall pick? 12 team snake draft format.

I wouldn't, take the RB. Even if the QB's score the most points in the league the difference between QB1 and QB 10 will be much smaller the the difference between RB1 and RB10

Custom scoring. Some of the qb's in our league can score over 600 pts a game. its a point per yard + 30 pts per touchdown. negative pts for interceptions and sacks ect.

This ^^^^

We have similar scoring in my league. I think Aaron Rodgers went in our first round but he was the only QB. Brady may have gone early in the second round.

I'll answer the actual question, and go Tom Brady. If you are set on drafting a QB, that would be the most reliable / big point producer.

I know I shouldn't because he proves us wrong every year but I'm worried about his receiving core.

Ok if I were to go running back, who should I go for? I was looking at it and someone like Jimmy G could fall into my lap at the 24th overall pick

Gurley, Bell or Elliot...
Don't know if you can go wrong with any of those.

We don't score like your league does, but Jimmy G. went in the 8th round of our draft.

How can you go wrong with his mixture of TDs and YRDs?

Donít fall victim to custom scoring.

All QBs get the same opportunity. The difference between the #1 QB and #10 is negligible usually. There is anomalies though.

Go with Bell, Johnson, Gurley or Zeke. In that order IMO. Barkley is an outlier to the top 4 RBs. The drop off between Bell Cow RBs and the rest is tremendous.

Most models have Rodgers as QB1. Some have Watson.

RB then WR and maybe flop that depending on which WR is available. QB in round 1 is a complete no go for me. TE in top 3 rounds or dont touch until late. I let the board dictate when I draft a qb. Every year there will be 2-4 outstanding waiver claim rbs. I snagged Kamara last year after he didnt do anything the first three weeks and was cut by another player.

I would go Brady or Rodgers, I like Brady better...

Really, his receiving core... he doesn't need one, he could have the little giants out there and look good.

Only benefit Rodgers brings is the possibility for some rushing yards, cause we know Cadillac Tom ain't running lol

There's a 800 yard difference in passing between 1 and 10

There's a 400 yard difference between RB 1 and 10
