I dunno, are you happy with your current settings? After all, you are the one playing in the league, not us. Overall though, it appears to be pretty standard Yahoo! settings, except I don't use all the defense, only a team D. Therefore I don't use stats like forced fumbles, passes defensed and so forth. Only straight up stats like fumbles recovered and INT's. It seems normal to me, but if there are aspects of it you don't care for, mention them. It seems as if he is willing to accomodate the owners, so now is the time to speak up. Good luck!

Depends on how many teams you have in the league. If its 12 teams I would have a problem starting 2 QB's. Each team would have to draft 3 QB's which equals 48. If thats the case I would ask to draft a team QB not individuals. It looks like the QB's will score more points than your RB's. What is W/T and W/R?

The most immediate suggestion that comes to mind is that you need WAY more bench positions. You have like a 20 man starting lineup with only 5 backups? You know people get injured in the NFL right?

Bye weeks? Fogettah bout it.

They would have to eliminate positions then. Yahoo! only allows up to 25 players.

Check some of the cafe leagues and look at their scoring. There are so many leagues they probably have every type of scoring around, and you'll get a feel as to what is the right scoring. ;-D

It's all good and it's all a matter of taste, of course, but I'm not a huge fan of formats where the top kick returners are equal to or more valuable than the top wide receivers. I'd devalue return yards considerably, perhaps going up to 100 yards per point.

Again, all just a matter of taste... :-)

I agree here. I'm not too big a fan of these type of leagues where the big name receivers are outscored by guys like Dante Hall and other receivers, but to each his own!

Also, I'd recommend only starting one quarterback if the league is bigger than ten teams, it will get pretty tough once injuries and bye weeks set in during the season if you have 24+ QB starting at a time.
