Waiver Adjustments

In my league there are 2 RB, 3 WR 1 TE and 1 Flex. Its a PPR league, so I'm not sure which adjustment to use (2 or 3). At 3 Gronk and Graham are 12 and 13 respectively. At setting 2, they are 24 and 25. I would like to know as this is a crucial part of the draft, As that is probably the high and low end of their draft positions.

Do most teams draft a backup TE in your league? If the answer is no, then you should use adjustment 3. Adjustment 3 considers the last starting TE to be equal to the last backups drafted at QB, RB, and WR. It assumes that TEs ranked below the last starting TE will be on the waiver wire. [Or at least that's how it worked before the TE baseline was halved].

Adjustment 2 considers the last starting TE to be equal to the last starting QB, RB, and WR. This would be the one to use if most teams will probably draft a backup TE, or TEs are pretty highly thought of by your league members.

Only you can answer that question. If you don't know, then go with adjustment 3, which is the one more commonly used in most fantasy leagues.

Thanks, I believe most draft a backup as its a fairly deep league.
