The NFL rules do not state there should be a tighend on every team nor should there be a fullback on every team. In a nutshell, if most NFL teams start a RB, FB and TE, why must some fantasy leagues insist all teams start a tighend but do not mandate each team start a fullback. It is all so odd to me.

Leagues mandating 2 starting Quarterbacks I have monitored this trend for some time and it seems like most 'high-level' leagues are going in this direction. Personally, in straight drafts, I will not draft a quarterback until round 9 or later. The NFL has 32 starting quarterbacks each week and 99% of time not each one is even drafted in Fantasy Football drafts. Personally I think there is very little disparity between the 4th best quarterback and the 28th worse quarterback stat wise. Now if I had to start 2 quarterbacks each week, I might have to 'think' a little harder.

My leagues only start one QB and I would like to see them decrease the point totals QB accumilate and make it a must start 2 QB's as well. Most teams only have one primary RB, but all fantasy teams start 2 RB's. A hypothetical, I'm not going to crunch numbers to see if it balances but say................ RB's score 6 points a TD, 1 point every 15 yards rushing then give QB's 4 points passing TD's 6 points rushing TD's and 1 point every 30 yrds passing. It probably needs to be tweaked but I see that as a good way to even out the value of the positions in fantasy football.

How are your QBs scored? Standard scoring is:
Passing Yards: 1/25
Passing TDs: 4
Rushing/Receiving Yards: 1/10
Rushing/Receiving TDs: 6
