Should I stack up on RBs even with these Settings??......We don't get points for every 10 or 25 yards rushing or reciving, so which backs should i pick, because it seems like I need backs that score more tds, not get yards??....How should I draft with these settings??...sorry if i sound Dumb, This is my first time trying out Fantasy Football.....also, what is Waiver rules??

I have to say these are the most bizarre settings I've ever seen. 200 yds/pt passing? And you don't even get fractional points? I've never seen anything like that. Your gonna have a lot of low scoring match ups. But it works out similar to most settings I guess, since passing yards are worth about half as much as rushing yards. I would say that RB is still the most important position. Although, receiving yards are worth just a little bit more, so WRs might be slightly more valuable.

The way waivers work is that every team is assigned a number, based on the reverse of draft order. So if you drafted 15 in a 20 team league, your number would be 6. Then when you want to drop a player from your team and add another, you put a claim on him. When that player comes off waivers (2 days in your case), the team with the lowest number gets him.

This is really bizzare.

Passing TD's = 2pts but INT's are -1

With that, if you don't have Manning, Brady, Palmer, or someone like that, you basically get nothing from QB

I might be tempted to draft Adam Vinatieri in the second round, mayble late 1st round if you are near the bottom.

If those rules stick you gotta take running backs all the way, but I agree with eveyone else that those setting are very unusual??????? I might look elsewhere

I'm going to go through with this draft, becuase its with some friends at another forum.....Should I try to get one of the top 5 Qb's early, becuase the other Qbs will be worthless, or should i just wait till the last few rounds for a QB......I should probly draft rb, rb, wr, wr, rb, TE then Maybe QB , what do you guys think???
