I feel the same way. The whole 2 QB and 2 TE thing just throws EVERYTHING out of whack.
But I do

I'm glad you guys are enjoying the settings.
I REALLY like this format. "Change of pace" is a good way to put it because you really can't draft how you normally
would. I think all 4 drafts have been slightly different. Here's each draft through 77 picks:2006
Through 77 picks, the drafts look kinda similar. Even more emphasize on QB's & TE's this year. Check out the 4 drafts through 4 rounds:
Each draft through 4 rounds:2006
4 different starts IMO. Year 1 was the only year that QB's didn't go crazy early. I think The_Dude drafted the best team that didn't win a championship in this league. In 2007, the year Brady & Moss set records, The_Dude started his draft (from the 5 slot): Peyton/McGahee/Brady/Roy Williams/R.Moss. He had both guys in their record breaking year.
He dominated the regular season but his lack of RB depth finally got the best of him when Brady & Moss slowed down a little towards the end of the year.
I don't usually talk strategy in the middle of a draft, but this isn't a $$$ league & it's late enough I think. I've always drafted my 3rd RB early. I won the championship in year 1, and it was mainly due to me being the 2nd owner to draft 3 RB's. I drafted DD in the 2nd round & he didn't even play a game that year. I drafted FWP in the 5th & he really saved my team. This is the 1st year that I took a QB before the 6th round. I'm the only owner that hasn't taken 2 QB's yet. Starting 2 QB's & 2 TE's is definitely a twist (like you guys mentioned), but starting 4WR's should be added to the twist IMO. I've always drafted RB & WR heavy early in this league so I'm liking the way this draft is going (QB & TE heavy).
