Why Start Two Quarterbacks

2013 RB Efficiency Numbers

Now that the fantasy season is over, I’ve begun digging into the film and the numbers from 2013, to see what lessons we can learn. My preference is to find stats that ignore volume and put players on an equal playing field, so that I can compare their per-touch numbers to one another. Those comparisons are helpful to fantasy players, because it allows us to see pure talent and fantasy potential, which we can then overlay onto a player’s opportunity next year even if they change teams.

This article takes that approach to Running Backs, because it shows their per-touch point averages for 2013. I came to these numbers by dividing total fantasy points in 2013 (PPR league numbers) by the sum of each player’s receptions and rushing attempts. The final numbers you see here show how many fantasy points each Running Back gained on average each time they touched the ball in 2013.

2QB Dynasty Leagues

Around here, we’ve spent a year talking about 2QB leagues, and on the podcast we’ve broken down rankings and strategies for those of you who enjoy the 2QB format. What we haven’t done much of is discuss dynasty leagues, but here begins the change.

Berger and I accepted invitations to a startup 2QB dynasty league run by Joe Siniscalchi. The league is full of great minds, drawn from a mix of FF writers and long-time FF owners. We are still drawing up the final rules, and I expect the draft to begin a couple weeks after the Super Bowl.

As I research for the league, I am learning that dynasty means you need to go even deeper than I’ve ever done before. You can’t stop satisfied with your study of Robert Turbin’s game tape. Instead, you need to go back and watch Christine Michael in college. Instead of thinking you’re hot stuff because you have an opinion on last year’s draft class, you need to know the guys who haven’t even been drafted yet.
