I thought you guys might like to see how I set up an IDP-heavy league. I got sick of the "guy who gets Peyton wins the league" kind of point breakdowns. I made it so that top LBs (like Willis) are on equal footing with a top 10 RB. It is an interesting dynamic!
We are beginning our 6th season. Most of us have remained in the league... and everyone likes it because it is very competitive.
Let me know what you guys think.

I like it a lot. I've been in a league similar to yours for about 12 years now and it's even more slanted towards defense. I always like leagues where offensive and defensive total points are equally matched at the end of the year. There's no reason why offense should get all the glory and attention!
Real men play IDP. None of this team defense crap!
