Hi guys/gals - with Yahoo getting rid of Salary Cap Football this year we've (friends/family) have decided to try our hand at a traditional draft style league.

I set one up on nfl.com but there are a lot of settings that need to be looked at, i've heard from other friends that I need to tweak these to keep the league balanced and to block out shady trades at the end of the year.


Any advice from you pro's?

Thanks

My favorite leagues
12-14 teams
Receiving
.5 pt per reception
1 pt per 10 yd
6 pt per TD
Rushing
1 pt per 10 yd
6 pt per TD
-1 per fumble
Passing ( two choices depending on how valuable you want Qb to be)
A) 1 pt per 20 passing yards
6 pt per passing TD
-2 pt per interception
B) 1 pt per 25 passing yards
4 pt per passing TD
-1 pt per interception

This year I like option A because everyone is waiting on QBs this year so with option A the people who pick Rodgers/Breed/Manning/Brady will get rewarded for it.

All the other settings are pretty much default. Start playoffs in either week 13 or 14 I believe
Waivers on Mondays
2 days for league to veto trade.

Postions that I like best for 12-14 team ppr league
