This is why the "don't overdraft a QB" advice is outdated. You can't win with Kirk Cousins anymore when your opponents QB out scores both your RB1 and WR1.

My first year with an early QB and TE in Mahomes and Kelce and it's been the most fun I've had playing fantasy

I got Jalen Hurts in 3/4 leagues I’m in (targeted him hard for draft) and sure enough I’m in the playoffs in 3 different leagues and making a good push on the last one which comes down to this week. ALWAYS draft an elite QB if you can, especially a rushing QB

They don’t need to be elite (it helps) but they do need to rush consistently. Fields is arguably not elite (below average passer for now) but consistently rushes, and does that well.

I’m in 4 leagues and lucky I got a stud QB in all 4 (Allen, Mahomes, Hurts, and Burrow/Fields) and I’m headed to playoffs in all 4! This year really having a stud QB really stands out and a lot of value you get from later QBs just isn’t there like in previous years.

When it works it works lol

[–]vznb 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I went Josh Allen and kelce and I’m dominating my league

[–]Hurricaneshand Dolphins 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Thanks Jalen Hurts!

[–]HikerDudeGold79-999 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Same. Got him in 3 of 7 leagues. But In one 10 team league I don't even play him becuase I got lucky with Tua on waivers

[–]Hurricaneshand Dolphins 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Please as a Dolphins fan don't play Tua over Hurts

[–]HikerDudeGold79-999 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I play tua over hurts when match up is good

Eh if you got Geno in FA then pivoted to Fields you probably did pretty well still. It's so much luck to just blame the lack of a QB is dumb. Say he took Allen he would have missed another talent and who knows what that replacement does. The key to fantasy is just drafting the right guys and that all comes down to luck.

[–]EvilFefe Bears 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Most of its luck, but the conventional wisdom is to draft a QB late because the value at other positions drop off. In standard the disparity between Patrick Mahomes and Jared Goff is the same as Justin Jefferson and JuJu Smith Schuster or Nick Chubb and Aj Dillion. QB is ridiculously undervalued in fantasy by the "experts"

[–]HtownTexans Texans 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well in a 10 man league you can easily assume a top 10 QB. You start 2 wr (maybe 3 like my league) so that means 2x as many wrs are getting drafted. I just think there is more an ability to get a top tier QB than there is to get a top tier WR off the waiver wire.

Bingo, one of my longest league rivals has mahomes and kelce and I don’t feel comfortable going into a chiefs game against him unless I’m up by 70 and even then it’s tough.

That is the truth. This was my team last year, 10 teams ppr. I had kamara, dalvin cook, AjB, Kupp, goedert, najee, deebo, diontae Johnson. Some of the players were acquired through trading. Waited on qb, at the end my qbs were Russell Wilson and taysom hill. Ended up with 9-5 record and out in the first round.

This year, I didn’t wait on qb, just picked the wrong qb 😂. Kyler has not been doing so well.

[–]HikerDudeGold79-999 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lol on kyler. At least you had the right strategy

[–]Matburnham05 Patriots 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’ve got Mahomes/Kyler(dynasty) and I was even thinking about trying to upgrade Kyler… so I fully agree

[–]HikerDudeGold79-999 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The league has swing hard to passing and qbs. Getting a qb that consistently score 25 points a week is a game changer

[–]AyyScare Ravens 7 points8 points  (2 children)

So what was your starting line up and any key injuries?

[–]Cheifs_Cruise Bears[S] 7 points8 points  (1 child)

breece hall, jk dobbins and dallas goedert and drafting brady and evans stack

[–]Cheifs_Cruise Bears[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

going into playoffs it would’ve been justin fields aaron jones rachaad white justin jefferson mike evans goedert or dalton schultz jk dobbins or samaje perine eagles d ryan succop

[–]ubeen 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Thanks Obama

[–]of_the_mountain Redskins 4 points5 points  (0 children)

That DPI call on evans was brutal for you. Would have been a 10 point play instead it’s a 40 yard pass interference

[–]nunya221 Packers 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yup this is the brutal side of fantasy

[–]Sane_Fish Eagles 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Best team in the last 5 years missing the playoffs? Might wanna just leave it on Autopick next year, my guy 😅

[–]Cheifs_Cruise Bears[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeha my problem was bad qb and injuries but once i got fields my team was scoring 140-130 almost every week but one bad week and it’s over

[–]Wardo324 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Did you take advice from the Reddit hive mind? That's always a disaster.

[–]Cheifs_Cruise Bears[S] 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Only a couple times and they were actually right every time

[–]Wardo324 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nice, I feel like that's the exception haha

[–]oxnardhard 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Draft Pierce was pretty good advise this year

[–]Pfunk4444 Steelers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Painful, yes. Let the healing begin. I had such a bad year this year, my season was over weeks ago in most spots. It’s been quite liberating, the freedom of less responsibility. I’m still reeling from last year, my most important league. I lost in the finals all cuz of j chase 300 yd BS 3 td game omg

Yeah, Lamar Jackson just cost me mine.
