Count up all of the (we'll use QBs here) points scored by QBs on the entire roster (never mind which ones were active or if you just picked them up) and rank your team against the rest of the teams in the league. Repeat for rushing (RBs), Receiving (WRs and TEs), and D/ST.
This is more of a measure of competency. If you're a good owner you should be in the top 3 or so for rushing, 4/5 in receiving and then relatively low in the other categories unless no other teams are carrying two QBs or D/STs. I do actually find the Coach rating interesting (which is how many points you have scored divided by how many you *could* have scored) but only if you don't have a completely injured or backup bench, and the schedule difficulty, which I *think* is similar to NFL's strength of schedule (I know it's not points scored against you).
Anyway, don't put any stock into it. It means nearly nothing until they fix it by using only points scored in your active lineup.
Cool, thanks for clearing all that up. I had a feeling they count bench points, why I don't know, because some weeks my rushing would suck but I would move up in the rushing ranks. Same with passing and receiving. Yeah, their whole system is messed up.
