Are these settings normal? If not, how to capitalize?

Start, sit, who to acquit? My QB just lost a finger, wuss, who should I pick up?

Are these settings normal? If not, how to capitalize?

Hi All,

Totally new to FFB. My wife's cousin set up a family league with mostly newbies. The settings are:

The commish mentioned something during the draft about the settings favoring defense. Is this true? Are there any other weird things about this league for which I should adjust my general strategy?

Thanks for any help. Knowing nearly nothing about FFB should make this season a slog, but it'll at least be entertaining because of razzball.

High profile Defenses like Seattle, Carolina, St. Louis, etc. will thrive even more in this setting.

WR who are also great returners are even more valuable in leagues that count return yardage. You can get pretty deep in finding good returners. Harvin quickly comes to mind.

QBs also get a bonus 2 points for TDs than normal settings, but also lose points for being sacked. So those who are extremely efficient and throw a ton are even more valuable. The top three, Manning, Brees, Rodgers, are golden. But gems can be found in Ryan, Stafford and maybe even Dalton.

That my assessment, but I might be missing something here.

I like your take out of self interest: I have the Seahawks D and Harvin! I also have Brady as my QB - not sure how that will pan out. Thanks for the help!

Nope, I agree with everything here. In fact, this format really rewards the elite players, so a stars and scrubs approach might work well here.
