I agree with "no long yardage bonuses". Never liked that.
I like the idea of PPR (.5 points). Gives you even more to think about when drafting RB's, WR's, & TE's.
I'd really like to have the utility player (any position) instead of the normal flex (RB/WR). Like everyone has mentioned, we would have to make our scoring system so that no 1 position is that much more valuable that another. I think that having QB's TD's worth 4 and INT's worth -3 would help towards bringing QB's #'s down towards even. I think that PPR (.5 points) would help towards bringing WR's #'s up towards being even. If we decide that this is the way to go, the scoring is something that we could tweak in future seasons to make all the positions as even as possible (if we decide it needs it).
So this is the starting lineup that I like the best:
1QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1Util(any position), 1TE, 1K, 1DST, 1DL, 1LB, 1DB
I think that we should have 7 offensive bench players and 1 defensive bench player. 7 offensive bench players would allow for backups at every position. Obviously each owner could have his bench set up with any positions he wants, but 7 bench players would allow for a backup QB, 1 or 2 RB's, 1 or 2 WR's, 1TE, 1K, & 1 DST. This would make it so that you wouldn't have to drop anyone during the bye weeks, if you manage your team well. Having 1 defensive bench player would be for that exact reason. The leagues I was in last season only carried 1 kicker. When his bye week came you had to either drop the kicker for another 1, or drop someone else just so you could keep your kicker and rent 1 for a week. Being able to have backups at every position would eliminate that problem.
I think we would need more than 7 bench spots, especially if we have 3 IDP starters. If we have 9-10 bench spots, you would have room for 1 QB, 2 RBs, 2 WRs, 1 TE, 3 IDPs, and a utility bench spot (we could do 9 bench spots, and you would have to use the utility for the backup TE). Also, how many rookies are we drafting each year? The more we draft, the more bench spots we will need to develop the young guys.
Also, would you truly be able to use anything at a utility flex spot? I mean, if you wanted, could you start an extra kicker or extra team defense? Or would it really be a QB/RB/WR/TE flex?
By 'any position' I meant QB/RB/WR/TE for the utility position.
