Best Ball Bargain Hunting: Quarterbacks

The Best Ball Bargain Hunting series looks at the ADP differences for players across popular platforms in order to identify players who may be flying under the radar on specific sites. For an explanation of the methodology, check out the running back article that kicked off the series. A few scoring notes before getting into the analysis:
  • Scoring on DRAFT is 25 passing yards per point whereas all other sites are 20 yards. This gives a boost to high-TD and rushing quarterbacks in this format.
  • Scoring on MFL10s and Fantrax is -2 per interception, whereas FFPC and DRAFT it’s only -1.
  • FFPC is the only site that doesn’t score -2 points for a lost fumble, and QB is the position that fumbles most frequently. Between that and only -1 for an INT, turnover-prone QBs get a slight bump relative to the other sites.
