    I joined the draft in round 11. Ryan Grant is my 2nd RB. I am fucked.

    Autodraft slaps people on the wrist in round 8 by drafting a defense a little too high, then takes your ass over a barrel in round 9. Aside from that handicap, you and IBWT received good values with autodraft. Three #1 WRs is going to give you some consistent scoring. As soon as somebody loses their starting QB, you can dangle Eli Manning for a starting level RB.

    There is a backup placekicker named Swayze Waters on the Steelers?

    RB's are too valued in this league over QB and WR, the 50 yards per point for the QB really kills me

    I've been thinking about this, and I don't think we will see QBs too far away from the leaders. 6 points per touchdown pass more than evens things out. I actually think this scoring has potential to be an equalizer for who the better quarterback is. It always kind of sucks that the quarterback on a losing team would pad his stats in the fourth quarter with meaningless 2 minute drill offense, but the winning quarterback has to run down the clock. Ryan Fitzpatrick finished in the top 40 points scorers last season. That's just not right.

    I just think it's weird that I have Aaron Rodgers who threw for over 300 yards and passed for 3 TD's with no interceptions, and was only worth 7 more points than teammate Greg Jennings.

    I understand the complaints guys and we can review the rules at the end of the year..

    But something to think about: if the scoring for QBs is raised then, using last year's scoring totals, Josh Freeman and Matt Ryan are likely top-15 players, Matt Cassel is a top 20-player, Joe Flacco, David Garrard, and Eli Manning are likely top-25 players... To me looking at that, raising QB scoring to make passing yards doesn't make too much sense... I think QBs are good right now where they're at...

    For now though, I hope you guys enjoy the league and good luck!

    ...Or you could have tried reading the scoring rules before you drafted a QB in the first round. My bench RBs (Tolbert, Sproles, Tate) just outscored everyone else's starting running backs. This season is going to be a breeze.

    I was aware. Good luck getting that production the whole year from them. Maybe except Tolbert.

    Good luck to you and your 41 point deficit so far this week. Yikes!

    Is there a way I can view the league/scoreboard or is it private? I'm curious.

    I'll put it up after the Monday night game. So far, it looks like Richfield and I are battling for #1. To be fair, KCOTT has three players in the Monday night game... he isn't technically as bad as I led you to believe.

    It helps my cause that the Bears D looked like they were playing for Mike Ditka today... and they happened to be doing this against my oppositions starting QB

    It also helps that Pat Shurmur thinks running the ball with Peyton Hillis is not cool

    Umm, still managed to score the third most points in the week and win my matchup even with LeGarrette Blount and Dwayne Bowe combining for 4.35 points. So I'll take the 41 point deficit with 3 players still to play on Monday.
