This league is a mix of everything. Little dynasty, lots of auction, lots of beer. It's a league with sports writers and stuff, so pretty hardcore football heads.
Just to answer the Big Ben question, all three QBs are "starters" since the most amount of payout is to who has the most amount of points at the end of the year. Big Ben was the last QB on the board above the likes of Alex Smith and Christian Ponder, and since I had some cap room left, I decided to lock him up. With salary caps, it's always a gamble of where to spend your money. One of the teams in my league now has Cam Newton, Drew Brees and Matt Ryan as his QBs. His RBs are Darren Sproles, Daryl Richardson, Rashard Mendenhall, Law Firm and Mark Ingram. So my bet is that my 5 RBs should produce more of a point gap over his 5RBs then his 3 QBs produce a gap over mine.
I know it's confusing, but overall, the most fun league that I've ever been a part of.
