I'm with going QB first overall based on the settings. 1/2 a point per completion is HUGE. You are talking 5-10+ points per week in the bag before anything else comes into play. QB's in this league should be posting 20-30+ points every week easily.

Now because it's PPR a case can be made for going with an elite pass-catching RB first overall. So you can make a case for guys like Rice, Foster, etc. at number one. But even with that on a good day those guys are looking at 20-30 points. That's just the low end of what a QB could post under these settings. A guy like Rodgers or Brees goes out and throws 2 touchdowns on 10-15 completions and he's already breaking 20 points before you start totaling up yardage stats.
