QB Drake Maye, NE (1 Viewer)

Last edited:
I took Drake in my 1QB salary cap contract league at 3.5, which I felt was ridiculous. I selected him because he was, in my opinion, the best player on the board. I did not need a quarterback with Jalen Hurts under contract for at least two more years, depending on the circumstances of his contract in the league. I also have Jordan Love for a minimum of a season with contract options for longer, but it will be tricky to keep him, depending on what the price is going to be to keep him. My point is that I'm golden for at least two years, maybe longer. Michael Penix went before Drake in this league. Penix went 3.2.

The format does not affect this league's draft, but selecting a player in the third does give you the option of keeping the player under the league minimum for up to four years. The draft started on Monday after the NFL draft, and since then, I have seen Maye climb in drafts, especially after rookie camp. I suppose this could be the reason, but nothing has changed. I just finished in a 1QB dynasty league, and he went 2.7, which seemed about right to me. I would think in SF he would go much sooner.

He will be on my Taxi Squad for the time being, but I have built in a lot of time by selecting him and can afford to be very patient with him, which I think will be needed. He might be one of those players you try to trade for later instead of drafting him. I believe many drafters of Maye will get tired of the wait. I'm in on him for the long haul, though, at this point, and I will not be one of those managers you can approach in year two, hoping to acquire him before he breaks out, but that might be the right play.

“I would argue he was the toolsiest quarterback in this Draft…some teams in this league had him as the #1 QB in the draft…”

You’re not gonna want to hear that I grabbed him at 5.3 in my 12 team, 1QB, non-IDP, FFPC draft :)

Similar to your comment on me getting McCarthy in the 5th, I think I more speaks to the general expression of QB value overall in FFPC 1QB leagues. It’s definitely a trend I’ve seen over the years I’ve been playing there.

The draft I was in only had a 3-round rookie draft and a veteran draft later. It is a contract salary cap contract league. I'm not sure how FFPC affects it, but his ADP is much higher overall than 5.3. From what I read today, Maye has fallen behind JJ in ADP. I think Maye is still going QB3 or QB4 in most rookie drafts.
 
Maye seems to be a longer, more extended play. I'm okay with that. He is very young, but with youth comes a higher ceiling than other quarterbacks in this class. The Pats have a long way to go on offense, but sometimes, change can come very quickly. Only time will tell.

If you are looking to draft Maye. Make sure you have the roster space and time to be patient.

FFPC is a combo rookie/free agent draft, so that nudges rookies down a hair after the 2nd round or so.
