do you see anything that jumps out as unusual and is their anyway to exploit this?
Is it really QB heavy in the top 25 players last year 12 were QB :-° ONLY 7 RB :-° and 6 WR

Trust me their is no way the settings are getting changed but is their a way to use this to your benefit? Like even in the top SEVEN 4 were QB (inc. Vick tho)

Int = 0. That means I'd bump up gunslingers like Favre, Kitna and Eli.

after the top 3 picks focus on rb's with catching ability (westbrook, bush). Read as much as you can....and do as many mock drafts as possible (http://www.mockdraftcentral.com)

Looking at the defensive scoring stats, 2 per sack and 20 for a shutout, I have to say bump the defenses up much higher than usual. Normally I wait until the last round or two to grab a defense but to get 20 for a shutout, wow! If you get Baltimore and they shutout say Cleveland, add in 4 sacks and 2 turnovers thats 32 points!!!! A lot more likely to happen than a running back running for 320 yards or 200 and 2 Td's.

Also agree with bobbing headz on the Qb's. Last year Kitna had 30 plus turnovers. Erase those and his 4000 plus passing yards and 21 TD passes is fantastic.

What's the starting lineups look like? This sounds like a 2 QB start league to me if all those QBs are going early.
