LAG Synopsis

Quarterbacks - This is a quarterback league. Outside of the top few running backs, quarterbacks come on strongly in scoring and the decline over the first eight is significant enough and more so since this is the highest scoring position. A top QB is a big advantage in this scoring that has high yardage and TD points and only one point dings for interceptions or fumbles. No way would I want to wait beyond about the 8th best QB and the earlier the better as long as it did not come at the expense of a better pick.

Running Backs - This is a somewhat unique scoring in that it rewards running backs the standard yardage and scores but then only gives up a half point per reception while TE and WR get the full point. We still see that the top dozen running backs are much have players in this league the decline is very sharp but after that , commensurate wideouts are actually a bit more valuable. But the decline in RB value still is significant enough that by no means do you want to wait until the top 30 are gone before getting your RB2.

Tight Ends - Standard scoring for tight ends with reception points. It still does not make them on any even par with anything other than defenses and kickers but the decline in the top dozen is enough that you would be better served by taking them mid-run than waiting too long.

Wide Receivers - The reception point helps this position out a great deal and it actually scores better than RBs once the top dozen are removed but still - the decline in value is the most gently sloping of all positions other than defenses. Owning a few in the top 20 is a great advantage but no real need to run to this position until the positional raid has begun in earnest.

Defense - Standard "wait until the end" sort of scoring. The bang for the buck is not there unless you get a top two defense and don't have to pay much for it.
