LAG Synopsis (Other than the HuddlePerfect, this is one of the scoring systems that works out to nicely mix up value in QB, RB and WR. DEF and TE will fall behind here but the big three positions mix up very well.)

Quarterbacks - The scoring in this position showed that getting a top 5 player should be a decent advantage as long as it doesn't costs too much to acquire. Once that level is reached, the decline in value is far less stringent and waiting another round likely doesn't hurt too much. Top three quarterbacks are a pretty big advantage over all but the top running backs.

Running Backs - The interesting aspect to this scoring - used in other places as well - is that the top ten running backs score very well and the decline in value is pronounced but once that is cleared they tend to decline more slowly and it synch with what happens with wideout and quarterback (though they will not be drained as quickly). In this sort of scoring, best bet is to gather the backs strategically while mixing in WR and QB so that the optimal mix can be reached. It would be possible to win this league with a couple of RBs from 10+ ranks but of course it would still be a challenge because in this scoring there is a flex and RBs are always the most consistent from week to week.

Tight Ends - The Gates advantage probably is not as big as it may seem, even with the reception points used. Definitely want to reach a top ten tight end here and a top six is an advantage of some minor note, but the position compared to RB and WR suffers in points. The reality here is that you need to get a monster year from Gates to warrant taking any tight end early.

Wide Receivers - The good and bad news here is that after the top ten players for RB and WR are excluded, the positions not only track similar but after about 30 RBs are gone, WRs remain higher scoring than RBs. The bad news is that the difference between wideout "A" and wideout "B" cannot be relied on to be that much. So a strategic decision needs to be made when to take one here. One caveat about minimal decline in value - wideouts are hard to get right so the less-risk WRs kind of have more value than their numbers since they can be relied on more to be high scorers.

Defenses - Grab a top two defense or just wait. It won't hurt - honest.
