LAG Synopsis

Quarterbacks - This scoring system is about as QB-friendly as any you will see. With 1/20 yardage and six point scores against only a one point ding for a turnover, this position not only scores really well, it towers over all others - even RBs. The decline in value comes around the fifth or sixth best QB so this position is a definite early consideration. This is an auction league so draft position doesn't matter but where you put your money does - spend a bit more on a QB.

Running Backs - Standard output for running backs in a reception points league. Huge decline in the top ten then starts to flatten out for the next 20 or so until the higher scoring starters are all gone. After the eighth or tenth best RB is taken, wideouts start to become just as comparatively valuable.

Tight Ends - Like all the others, either you get the best one (Gates) and hope for a monster year or your tight end is just not going to make any major difference for your team as long as you have a top ten or so player.

Wideouts - Reception points place wideouts more on an even keel with running backs after the first ten RBs are gone but the decline from player to player is not particularly severe if even noticeable. Loading up on a couple top guys are great for a team but those bigger name players will cost you much more than grabbing a couple of 10th to 20th sort of players. Do not want to ignore the position at all but overpaying for a top star doesn't show much bang for the buck here.

Defenses - Standard defensive scoring means getting a top two defense likely will be a small advantage and reality says you have to overpay for them in an auction anyway so that money is likely more wisely spent elsewhere.
