Nope, until we changed the IDP starters for this year, all of the starting requirements have been the same since the beginning. ;-D

I agree, but you have to remember that the initial draft was back in 2006, when the 1st rounds of most drafts were all RB's (and all 12 owners picked a RB in the 1st round of our initial draft). Since we only have to start 1 QB, and the QB scoring is 4/-2, I think most owners didn't really consider starting 2 QB's as crucial. I think owners were looking at the fact that we can start 3 RB's...not the fact that we only have to start 1 if we start 2 QB's and 3 WR's. But you're right in that it's weird. If we had an initial draft for this type of league today, QB's would definitely go early and often. ;-D

It's not odd at all. Back in 06 one QB threw for 30 tds(Manning)in 05 there was also one(Palmer)The league was entirely different then, there was a reason running backs ruked the earth like the might t-Rex. Rules pertaining to wide receivers were different, you could actually hit the QB. You have to remember there was really no RBBC then either. The half PPR scoring was actually rather innovative then too. Most leagues were standard scoring, much like IDP people were not too eager to change.

I hope I didn't screw up not drafting Flynn's "backup" again this year. I would have taken him at 3.05.

I almost took Kelce at 3.05. You know how Reid loves the TE.
