Win The Bid On A “Late Round” QB In Your Fantasy Football Auction

late round qbThe term Late Round QB, was framed by JJ Zachariason and has been around for several years now.  In fantasy football auction drafting, it would equate to spending a buck or two on a QB or two.  No matter how many articles are written and podcasts recorded, fantasy football auction drafters still will pay top dollar for their QB.  Last year Andrew Luck was costing $35+ and this year it is Cam Newton.  Other years it has been Rodgers, Brady and Manning.  In most leagues, you are starting only 1 QB.  Thus on any given week, there are 12 starting QB’s (obviously depending on league size).  Every week there are QB’s who can put up QB1 numbers, many of which will only cost you a dollar.  I crunched a few numbers to show how the number of QB’s are increasing that have the capability of producing fantasy numbers each week/season that can help you win your league (without having to pay top dollar for a QB). Let’s look at late round QB strategies for fantasy football auctions in 2016.


Season Pts 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015
300 pts + 12 14 16 17 18
350 pts + 6 10 6 7 12
400 pts + 5 3 2 2 3
Avg. Pts/Gm
20+ 11 15 18 20 18
22+ 0 10 8 9 17
23+ 7 8 5 10 10


When reading the chart, any QB that produced over 300 FP includes those that scored over 350 and 400 as well.  I broke it down to show how the number drops off as the bar is raised.  One thing that is clear, the number of 300 point producing QBs has risen each year since 2011.  What that means is it is even easier to stream your QB to produce results similar to a top dollar QB.  If we have 18 QBs in 2015 producing over 300 fantasy points, then A) there are those who will only cost you $1 and B) you can play the WW and stream a late round QB to produce optimal points.
