Optimal Position Combinations


Most fantasy leagues allow owners to start just one QB, and most fantasy owners simply try to draft the best two QB’s available throughout the draft. Very few look ahead to the future at weekly matchups throughout the year. This is a huge mistake!

A QB with a top-tier favorable matchup versus a bottom-tier is ~8 fantasy points. These points add up throughout the season and can make the difference between winning or losing a championship. The same can be said for DEF’s: the difference between a top-tier favorable matchup versus a bottom-tier is ~6 fantasy points.

The FFWIZARD.COM Draft Kit contains a comprehensive list of QB and DEF combos with matchups that complement each other throughout the year. How does this work? Let’s look at an example.

A great QB combo is Matt Ryan and Blake Bortles. To demonstrate this, we first must rate each of their matchups throughout the year. We will use the following scale to rate the quality of a QB’s weekly matchup. (100 = playing easy defense; 75 = playing hard defense)





Now let’s look at the combination of Matt Ryan and Blake Bortles for each week of the season.






Notice how the QB’s complement eachother throughout the year? Week-by-week, you can see that when one QB is stuck with a bad matchup (red), the other has a good matchup (green)! In week 1, Matt Ryan has a great matchup (CHI) while Blake Bortles has a terrible matchup (HOU). In week 7, Bortles has a great matchup (IND) while Ryan has a tough one (NE).

Check out the far right column, “Avg”. Individually, each of these QB’s gets a matchup score of ~85, a “B”….but when combined these QB’s get a matchup score of 92, and "A-"!

Our draft kit includes a comprehensive list of optimal combinations for every QB in the league, and the top 20 defenses in the league. Download it today!
