Setting up my league...

Okay, I've decided to get rid of the 2nd QB. I tend to agree with the whole "trying to run an NFL team" idea. Also, with a 12 team league, the waivers can get a little thin. (Maybe with an 8 team league, the 2nd QB would be interesting though...)

I don't really like the WR/RB flex idea, because anyone who's smart would just get that extra RB, right? The only way I could think of balancing things out would be to add points for receptions. (But then again, a lot of RBs would benefit from this too.)

Now, what about having that 4th WR? I don't really think it should affect things too much. Also, what should the minimum number of bench positions be? I'm thinking 4. Basically, you could have a backup QB,RB,WR, and misc.

Finally, any pointers on how I should set up points for defensive players?

Yahoo has default settings for defensive players. In my league, we have one defensive player starting and the point breakdown is this:
solo tackle: .5
sack: 3
interception: 2
fumble forced: 2
fumble recovery: 2
touchdown: 6
safety: 2
pass defensed: 1
block kick: 2

i dont know anything about these yahoo leagues, but this is the way our league does it:

OFF (team)
DEF (team)

we do give RBs 1 pt for every 2 receptions and it doesnt make drafting a 3rd RB over a WR a foregone conclusion. we've been using this format for years and it's given us a decent amount of flexibility w/o being too chaotic. i wouldnt mind spicing it up a little, tho.

My opinion on adding starting positions is this...

I feel that there is more strategy in having to make roster decisions on smaller rosters than picking up and hoarding anyone with promise. I want my free agent pool to have some tempting players on it.
