Great one John! Appreciate the confirmation bias for my recent dynasty start up draft.

I drafted Derek Carr and no other QBs in my SF/TE prem startup last season. I won the league by a wide margin as others had no depth…picked up Minshew and then traded a 3rd for Foles…myth busted.

This means absolutely nothing… yes, you can win a league multiple ways including getting lucky and nailing every other position. Heck, you could draft the highest scoring kicker in round 1 and still win the league. The point is that the chances of you winning again this year are slim since you are stuck with Carr and Minshew and have to hope your RB/WR/TE all hit again.

Don’t ignore that he still sought out three QBs, he just did it post startup and got lucky that those two were available cheap. He did great setting up his team because he has those three to put up respectable numbers.

My roster is currently: (less QBs)

Jacobs, Rojo, Gurley, Bell, MG3, CEH, A Rob, Boyd, Julio, j Brown, E Sanders, Landry, A Jeffrey, R Anderson, J Crowder, C Herndon, Gronk, Dissly, Rudolph, Cook.

It’s SF/TE premium. Sure, you can ‘just get lucky’, but with this roster it doesn’t matter who you have at QB (Re: only had 1 QB for half the season and I traded for Foles after the season). Check. Mate.

Totally agree, I won a Superflex best ball with fitzmagic, Lock Eli and Tannehill, and it def wasn’t a great feeling post draft, and I’d never do it again (it wasn’t through choice lol), one off bits of luck is def not something to back a strategy!

Good article. I would add that for Myth number 3…. I’d rather have that 20 ppg QB3 sitting on my bench instead of playing against me.

Part of any fantasy football strategy should include playing a game of “keep-away”. Yes, you need to roster players that will help you, but there are times it makes sense to roster players you don’t want to hurt you.
