Yeah I am gonna keep it at $75 for something a lil different from open leagues.
Since there wasn't a big clamor for everyone to agree with tomhanrahan, I can only assume that most others who have signed up like the cap wherre it is.
I also did a sample draft recently at that cap. With predictable guys and salaries of players available, plus drafting a $30 mill defense, $5 mill O line, $3 mill kicker, $1.5 million punter, and $3.5 mill special teams, it allowed me to have around $5 million to draft my remaining 12 players. That seemed just about right for me.
The main thing IU want in this is to allow guys to draft a good defense and still have enough money to draft decent starters at starters salaries at the skill position. If someone would like to try drafting a 4--5 million dollar kicker and spending only $27 million on defense, they have the flexibility to do so.
I don't want to have a cap that is so low that everyone has to draft a $20 million dollar defense to be able to afford them. That would be just like an open league.
I think $75 mill gives everyone just the right amount of flexibility to go in whatever direction they want to go. Plus, makes for some interesting choices. If someone wants to draft the Bears defense, they could go with the 42 Bears if they can draft right. Then they have to decide if they want to draft the Bears D in the first round? Second? Third? When will they get taken and how long do you wait? It'll be just like a typical fantasy draft. I like the possibilites at $75 mill
