you get 6pts for a passing TD not the usual 4 and 1 pt for every 30 yds passing plus bonus pts for TD's of 20 yds +

Runners get 1 pt for every 10 yds, 6 pts for a TD, bonus pts for TDs over 20yds as well

Both get total yd bonuses...300+ Brady, 100+ Foster..

Lot of it depends on who you take later-could get a guy like Fred Jackson in the second round and Eli later as a QB...

I'll be glad to answer anyone else's questions like sleepers,etc

Thanks

Foster will probably go first so Brady if you want him. I would take Rodgers

Rice should be your pick. There are only 3 safe RB`s and Rice is one of them. I would wait to get a QB like Stafford and if you don`t get him then go with Ryan, Rivers, Romo all much later on.
Don`t buy into either Manning. They`re going way too early. Eli is NOT a great QB. I don`t care about superbowls. You don`t get any fantasy points for that. He finished only 12 points ahead of Ryan last year.

Even though I think Rodgers does not put up the numbers he did last season...it's him at QB ONLY in the 1st round! Other than him you go RB! Personally I'd take Rice or McCoy with your pick if Foster goes #1. Plenty of 2nd tier QB's that will put up solid numbers each week.

go with RB/RB/WR or TE (Gronk or Gates if avail). Bet you Schaub, Eli, Cutler still avail by 4th round.

ELi Manning last year was good 4933/29

Eli was good, but not great. That`s the point I was trying to make. I think he gets bit overvalued because of his postseason success. Like I said, the other QB`s that go a few rounds later are pretty much on par with Eli as far as fantasy stats go.

Thanks,guys...I was just curious if i messed up and I guess I did taking Brady but I didn't see the bonus points were trimmed down in my new league vs. the old and elite QB's burned me last year...still my ratings guide(fantasyindex.com-highly recommend it) had Brady 4th...I got Fred Jackson second and Jordy Nelson 3rd followed by Ridley...live and learn...could of had Foster and probably Eli in the 6th or 7th...

Check out Steve Smith Rams if you haven't already-may be undrafted but will play and Fisher will make the Rams way better...

Wow your team is awful, why would you take Ridley in the 4th?  And you have the Pats running AND passing game, too many eggs in one basket.  You took Fred Jackson too early, and Jordy Nelson too early, Both a round too early

Hutch-lack of libraries up there in Minny-no, all I was saying taking Brady 2nd was wrong vs Foster but then Mr post # 9 ripped me for taking Ridley and Brady...so how did that work out so far?

NE should score a lot every week and I'll get many of those...

I don't understand this...  this is week 1 and you are saying how good this draft is?  Ridley had a good week, so you look like a genius, but brady was crap, he was about 10th best qb so according to you that was a horrible 1st pick.  I would gone Foster 1st round and Ryan in 4/5th round that is because I did

If I like a player I will take them a round or 2 before they should go, so no problem with that, but it annoys me when someone does it then after one week they brag how smart they are. 

For your sake I hope you do well, I don't have either guy on my team because I never take a qb in 1st round and I was not a fan of ridley, although after week 1 i may be wrong on him...

GL with your team... and as a Hoya fan Hoya Saxa
