well first off if your draft is tonight your scoring settings should have been set weeks ago. i would be pissed about that if i was in your league, especially since you made them so you can know how to draft. i think the completion/incompletion points are kinda stupid, but to each his own.
with 2 starting qbs your league is going to favor the qbs especially with 12 teams. thats gonna be tough, some bye weeks there are going to be teams that dont even have 2 starting qbs.
I'd remove points for completions and incompletions, I'd change picks to -2 points instead of -3, I'd add 0.5 or 1 point per reception to achieve your goal of more balance, get rid of the -1 point for getting sacked. I'd also normalize those point values for kickers. Kicking is extremely random week to week and awarding that many points for kickers removes skill and adds that much MORE randomness and luck to a game that is already very heavy on it. Why do you have such a weird scoring system anyway?
