Quarterbacks and Running Backs were the fantasy leaders in week 1—the trend has changed in week 2. Displayed above are the top 6 performers at each of the three pivotal fantasy position in CFB Daily Fantasy Cash Drafts.

The clear message that can be observed is that on the top end, receivers and running backs have higher top end potential than a quarterback. 40 points is about the limit you can ever expect a quarterback to score.

Look at Luke Falk for example. I can’t imagine him throwing much more, maybe total out at 500 passing yards. Additionally maybe he runs in a touchdown on top of the 4 passing touchdowns. This still only brings his total to 45 points, still short of what many of the running backs and receivers accomplished this week.

However, what’s missing in this message is the predictability of quarterback performances. Quarterbacks are much more predictable and can consistently provide fantasy value in return for the salary spent on them. The same is not necessarily guaranteed with a running back and especially not with a receiver.

You can work this into your CFB Cash Draft Strategy. If you are entering in a head to head or 50/50 type contest, you don’t need huge point totals, but you need consistent point totals. For this you should put a little extra salary into the quarterback position where you know you will get the return on your investment.

For a league type tournament or multiplier, focus on your Running Back picks. Here you can get a little extra return beyond the quarterback but it is more reliable return than the volatile receivers.

And if you are a high risk, high reward type fantasy manager, receivers are your best friend. It may be hard to identify the receiver than will explode each week, but if you are entering a winner take all type of contest, you’ll need to roll the dice with receivers to stand a chance of cashing in. Maybe even look to spend your cash at the tight end, which is more volatile, yet less impactful than receivers.
