1st rule of Fantasy Football: Never draft a QB in the first round.
2nd rule of Fantasy Football: Never draft a QB in the first round.

With those settings you pick one of the top 3 but no others (maybe Stafford)

I'm in a league where my first 2 picks were QB's. It ALL depends on the league settings. It also helps that RB's don't get the ball 30-40 times a game either. Nor are there RB's totaling 20+TD's each year.
Winning fantasy matchups is about point differentials. If I can grab a top tier QB and another position or two where I can guarantee a 10-15 point lead and wash elsewhere, it's almost a guaranteed trip to the playoffs which is the key. Once you're in the playoffs, it's a crapshoot anyways.

No you don't and here's why.

Everyone is basing reaching for a QB in the first round due to last year's stats. QB points, no matter the settings, historically (with the one exception of last year) do not have a significant drop off after the first few through about the 6th or 7th QB taken. Last year was an outlier as Peyton was injured for the whole season, Rivers had an off year, Vick was banged up, and Schaub was hurt as well. From a relative value standpoint the QB position always has at least 1-2 QBs that you can take later on and still get good performance from (i.e. Stafford or Cam last year). I have never seen a team who took a QB in the first round win their league. Doesn't mean it can't happen, but it severely handicaps your team.

The historically pt differential among QBs is not there. Look at any year other than last year and you'll see. Mean reversion, it's a *****.

Brees was the better pick. Judging by your scoring, he will put up more points. .5 per completion. He has been leading the league in completions, was 1st in yrds and tds last year as well. wasnt a bad pick

QB was the right call due to the settings, but the only QB to take at one right now is Rodgers.

Those guys should be going late first and into 2nd round. What about A. Rodgers, T. Brady, A. Foster, R. Rice, C. Johnson to name a few.

It's not that it doesn't exist it's that nobody is following it this year. I'm willing to bet that relative QB ratings are back to their historical norm.
