It looks like 6 teams(so far) have chosen to go with the 2 RB approach...........should be interesting.

what's a RB?
5/30/2014 8:29 PM
The guy(s) that are going to be blocking for Rodgers.

Hoping my 49ers OL doesn't give up too many sacks. Couldn't resist that 100 run rating!

I went the other way, I got a 100 sac rating to try and protect Brees.

Main reason I drafted Tarkenton.  A 94 run rating will hopefully help him scramble out of the pocket.  My other choice was Spec Sanders but figured OJ & Payton should be getting a majority of the carries!

My fortunes are really dependant on Adrian Peterson.  If Peterson performs for me like he did for Amerk in season #1, I have no chance.

Did anyone, while drafting this league or in NDL 1 or 2, check on who the most expensive undrafted skill player was/is? Not sure if it would be a RB or QB.

Probably someone like Matt Stafford

Worms with all the stamina your backfield has Fran won't run much. I can never get running QBs to do anything

Grayfox is right Stafford is a $9 mil undrafted free agent!! Followed closely by Matt Ryan and Tony Promo. I actually was thinking of taking Ryan but Rivers was still available so went with him.

So question is who's going to pick Stafford up as a backup?

idea for NDL4: Ban uber-stars with uber-star seasons
 * allow no QB over 8 MIL, and RB over 7.5 MIL, WR/TE over 2.5 MIL *

with that, might lower overall capto 70 or 72 MIL

could also permit no DEF >35MIL, which simiarly would mean likely lower overall spending

I seriously like this idea - you can still have Manning, Brees, Brady, Juice, Jim Brown, etc., but just slightly weaker seasons.

Let's see some of the lesser used stars in action.



TEs would need to be dropped a little further, maybe 2.2 mil, because there are only 4 affected by the 2.5 limit

After a couple seasons, I think 70-72 mil might be a better cap for this league. Would make it tough to use any really strong defense, though.

I would prefer not to artificially restrict what could be spent on any one player at a position, but would be happy to try it. It would only really effect QB - you can build effective WR/RB platoons easily without getting high dollar guys, without any difference in performance. I only say it would effect QB because, from two seasons of watching people try to use QBs like Foles, it's not as easy to get the SIM engine to rotate them the way you want.
