    looks like only brees over the past 4 years is consistently a top 5 qb, top 10 u toss in rivers, brady, and whole slew of others who are there, but range from QB2-QB9-10-12 and vary year to year, Id kinda rather snag a round 1 pick, and then snag the likes of rivers, jameis, stafford

    Whichever one you like the best of Rodgers, Brees, Brady, Luck.. yes absolutely. Imho, they should be 4 of the top 6-7 picks

    If it went like it did when I was in a 2 QB league you'll be lucky to grab McGown in round 3 and most likely won't have a QB3 that actually starts for his team, so good luck if one of your starter misses a game or two with a concussion or something, just saying....

    Well that's good, in my league we had 5 bench players and most every team had at least one bench QB, some had 2.

    But this can also be what dooms an owner in a 2QB system.
    Because if everyone has a decent QB1, the difference maker will be the guy who has the best QB2.
    Especially in a point-friendly system.

    Suppose you don't.
    Then the next 20 of the next 23 picks are all QB when it swings back to you.
    No way that David Johnson (or LeVeon Bell) and ODB (for example) outscore 2 elite QB.

    Well, it was rhetorical.
    You're the mock draft guy... why not import your league scoring rules in a 2QB mock and see what you get?

    I was talking out of my ass for shits and giggles. And maybe for a good challenge, waiting on QB is doable. Plus, trades are always a thing...

    But here's the most important part. And I'm sure one of Joe's charts is showing this somewhere, that the bust rate on QB is not as great (or even close) to the bust rate at RB/WR.

    Trading for a QB in a 2 QB league is tough. You have to give up alot for even average QBs.

    Yes. It would have to be a perfect storm I suppose. Owner has three QBs beyond their byes and desperately needs an RB.... of which you have many kind of thing.

    I don't think you need the second QB so soon... I agree with all to draft the first QB in the first round... get a top QB... But the second one you can stream... QBs are the easiest position to stream IMO... by streaming here I mean between your 2nd QB and your third or even 4th... The real trick that you need is an actual starting QB #3...

    What I would do is draft in the first round, and then wait a round or two depending on the flow of the draft... and then when you draft your 2nd draft the third with your next pick...

    BUT if any big QBs fall to you in the second then you should jump on them... But doubt that any top 5 QB will fall, and really after the top 3 QBs, everybody is similar to QB-20...

    But in a 2 QB system some owners might carry 3 on their roster for bye weeks or insurance unless the commish sets a limit of 2. So streaming isn't an option.

    No, in the Milkian world, streaming means playing matchups, not what it means to 99.9999999% of the rest of the fantasy world
