2014 Draft Prep: Two-QB draft

12-team draft | 12-team PPR draft | 10-team draft | 12-team auction | Draft Averages

Many Fantasy owners have chortled at the idea of starting two quarterbacks because it doesn't mirror reality.

NFL teams start one quarterback, why should Fantasy owners?!

But Fantasy Football is all about having fun, and sometimes it's fun to change reality. It's also fun to score more points, which happens when more quarterbacks are added to starting lineups.

And we also happen to live in a time where there are so many quality passers in the NFL. For instance, a quarterback that has finished in the Top 10 at his position each of the last two seasons and just won a Super Bowl has an Average Draft Position of 105th overall (we're talking about Russell Wilson). Doesn't something seem weird about that? Shouldn't we take advantage of this golden quarterback era?

Two-quarterback leagues are no walk in the park, by the way -- especially if it's more than 10 owners. Suddenly draft strategies change and quarterbacks become extremely popular. It's not a surprise to see close to half of the picks in the first round of a two-quarterback draft to be signal-callers. The same goes for Round 2, too. In fact, most people like to draft quality quarterbacks immediately and address other positions later on, if only to knock out what has become the most integral part of this format.

There's another added wrinkle you can tack on to these leagues -- add points per reception. By doing that, Fantasy owners now must not only eyeball quarterbacks sooner than expected, but receivers and stud tight ends pick up instant interest too. Fantasy owners must decide what takes priority on Draft Day.

That's what we did in our 10-team, two-QB league. We also enlisted in some experienced two-QB Fantasy owners for the draft. Former NFL beat writer and current OrangeBloods.com writer Anwar Richardson has played the format for years. He's joined by CBSSports.com NFL Draft Analysts Rob Rang and Dane Brugler along with our own staff of well-seasoned analysts.

As always, we ask you to share your thoughts on this draft. Take advantage of our Fantasy Football Twitter feed (@CBSFantasyFB) and post your comments there, or share your thoughts on our Fantasy Football Facebook page.

In this league, all touchdowns are worth six points, and we award one point for every 10 yards rushing and receiving and one point for every 25 yards passing. We feature a starting lineup of 2 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, TE, K, DST and a FLEX (RB/WR/TE). There will also be six reserve spots for a 16-round draft.

Redskins sign Ricky Jean Francois to three-year contract
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6:58 pm ET) The Redskins signed defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois to a three-year deal Thursday, reports the NFL Network.

The deal is believed to be worth $9 million with $4 million guaranteed. With incentives, the deal can reach $11.25 million.

Jean Francois was cut by the Colts on Monday. In 2014, Jean Francois totaled 28 tackles and three sacks.


Report: Browns believe they still have a shot at Josh McCown
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6:44 pm ET) The Browns remain confident that they can snag quarterback Josh McCown from the free agent ranks, according to a report from ESPN.com

McCown visited the Browns this week and has also received interest from the the Jets, Bills and Bears. The Browns are in the market for a starting-caliber quarterback with Brian Hoyer possibly leaving in free agency and with Johnny Manziel's status up in the air with the off-field issues hes working through. 

McCown threw 13 touchdowns to just one interception with the Bears in 2013, doing this while filling in for an injured Jay Cutler. His performance earned him a contract with the Buccaneers, though injuries and poor play resulted in a season that saw him throw 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. 

McCown was released by the Buccaneers earlier this offseason. 


Report: Cardinals sign cornerback Damond Smith
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6:12 pm ET) The Cardinals signed cornerback Damond Smith on Thursday, reports The Baltimore Sun.

Smith did not play during the 2014 season after being cut by the Chiefs. He has never played in an NFL game.


Chargers officially cut OL Jeromey Clary from roster
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5:52 pm ET) Chargers offensive lineman Jeromey Clary announced his retirement in January. However, the Chargers finally removed him from the offseason roster with a failed physical designation, according to the NFL transaction wire. 

Clary did not play during the 2014 season due to two hip surgeries. 

Clary spent all nine of his NFL years with San Diego. 


Chiefs release veteran tight end Anthony Fasano
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5:46 pm ET) The Chiefs announced Thursday that they have released tight end Anthony Fasano.

Fasano has been with Kansas City for the past two seasons after stints with the Dolphins (2008-12) and the Cowboys (2006-07). The Cowboys selected Fasano in the second round of the 2006 NFL draft. 

In 2014, Fasano caught 25 passes for 226 yards and four touchdowns. 


NFL plans to appeal ruling on Vikings RB Adrian Peterson
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5:25 pm ET) The NFL will appeal the Thursday ruling that reversed an arbitrator's decision on Vikings running back Adrian Peterson's suspension until April 15. 

U.S. District Judge David Doty ruled for the NFL to vacate the upheld suspension via arbitration, with the case going back to arbitrator Harold Henderson. Peterson pleaded no contest to reckless assault on his son, which originated with child abuse allegations. 

With the ruling, Peterson will revert back to the Commissioner's Exempt list.

The NFL released a statement on its desire to appeal the ruling. 

"Judge Doty's order did not contain any determinations concerning the fairness of the appeals process under the CBA, including the commissioner's longstanding authority to appoint a designee to act as hearin officer," the statement reads. "Even so, we believe strongly that Judge Doty's order is incorrect and fundamentally at odds with well-established legal precedent governing the district court's role in reviewing arbitration decisions. As a result, we have filed a notice of appeal to have the ruling reviewed by the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals. In the interim, Adrian Peterson will be returned to the Commissioner Exempt List pending further proceedings by appeals officer Harold Henderson or a determination by the Eighth Circuit Court."

         


NFL on Panthers' Greg Hardy: He hasn't been disciplined
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5:11 pm ET) Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy reportedly is ready to immediately file for reinstatement from the Commissioner's Exempt list. However, the NFL's stance at this time is that there is nothing for Hardy to be reinstated from.

“He hasn’t been disciplined," NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told the Charlotte Observer. "There is nothing for him to seek reinstatement from at this point."

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell placed Hardy on the Commissioner's Exempt list early this season. Hardy was accused of assaulting and threatening his ex-girlfriend, Nicole Holder, and was found guilty by a judge last summer. However, upon appeal to a jury, the case was dismissed after Holder failed to show up to court and shut off communication with the prosecution. 

Hardy wants to be reinstated to the 53-man roster now that a federal judge ruled in favor of Vikings running back Adrian Peterson in his case against the NFL. Judge David Doty ruled that an NFL arbitrator wrongly upheld the league's suspension against him and referred his case back to the collective bargaining agreement. 


Report: Lions to sign linebacker Phillip Hunt
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4:35 pm ET) The Lions are on the verge of signing linebacker Phillip Hunt, reports ESPN.

Hunt spent three seasons with the Eagles and totaled 16 tackles. He did not play in the NFL during the 2014 season.


Rams release defensive end Kendall Langford
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4:08 pm ET) The Rams have parted ways with defensive end Kendall Langford, the organization announced on Thursday. 

The move will save the Rams $6 million in cap space for the 2015 season. 

In 2014, Langford totaled 25 tackles and one sack in 16 games (four starts). A seven-year vet, Langford has notched 15 1/2 sacks in his career. 


Cardinals re-sign reserve tackle Bradley Sowell
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3:54 pm ET) The Cardinals signed offensive tackle Bradley Sowell to a one-year deal, the organization announced on Thursday

Sowell, who will enter his fourth NFL season, signed with the Cardinals in 2013. Due to injuries on the offensive line, Sowell started 12 of Arizona's 16 regular-season games. He did not start a game in 2014.
