Offensive Lineups and Scoring.

Postby matmat » Mon Nov 08, 2004 5:34 pm

Alright, so I have a few questions.

In the NFL, with 32 teams, there are:

32 starting QBs
32ish starting RBs
64ish starting WRs
32 kickers
32 defences.

1) what do you think good lineup settings are for various size leagues to keep the league fairly competitive and not too shallow?

For example, I am in a 8 team league that starts
2QB, 2RB, 3WR 1WR/RB 1TE, 2K and 2D. So far it seems pretty competitive, it is hard to find replacements on the WW and FA list, but seems a little more fun than if you could still pick up people like, say, pittman ...

2) how do you balance scoring? IMO it is a good idea to have the scoring categories such that either:
a) the average for each skill position (QB, WR, RB) roster spot is about the same amount throughout the league i.e. you expect each WR spot to score about as much as each RB spot, on average.
b) each set of positions (all QBs, all WRs all RBs) average the same amount throughout the league.
(so, for example, if you have 2RB slots and 3WR slots, the 2RB slots are expected to score as much as the 3WR slots through the season, on average)

hope i explained those enough for you to see the difference.

any thoughts?
