Fantasy Football: How To Attack the QB Position In DFS
It’s a passing league right!? So don’t we have to go all in on the Quarterback position when building DFS lineups if that’s the case!? Well, not exactly. Let’s dive deeper and look at some big-picture principles we’ll want to utilize as a foundation when rostering QBs in our DFS lineups.
Efficiency Gets The Job Done
Earlier, we discussed the importance of opportunity in fantasy football in the Running Back, Wide Receiver, and Tight End versions of this article. While opportunity generally helps at the QB position as well, it’s not as important as efficiency. Almost all QBs see a significant amount of volume in today’s passing league because unlike other positions, QBs don’t have to compete for touches with their own teammates. For reference, 33 different QBs averaged over 30 pass attempts per game last season. That enhanced volume creates a much larger sample size at QB when compared to other positions.
