    This "problem" is not really the problem.
    The true "problem" involves how a league's commissioner sets up the scoring system.
    If you set up your league with RBs and QBs scoring lots more points than the other positions, then of course you'll have managers drafting extra RBs and QBs.
    If you set up your league so that DEFs and Ks and return specialists also have good value,
    then managers will choose extra DEFs and Ks and return specialists.
    The issue here involves supply and demand.
    WRs have an over-supply, so you don't benefit from picking extra WRs unless return specialists are rewarded in your league specs.
    DEFs and Ks are actually in shorter supply than RBs and QBs. It is amazing how much differently a manager will draft when DEFs and Ks and return specialists are valuable positions on a roster.
    So, just reduce the value of RBs & QBs and watch this "problem" disappear.

    I don't see how this idea would really help leagues.
    Allowing this change would force me to check another setting/rule while looking at leagues to decide which one to join.

    Hey Klondike, there's no good reason for you to talk to these people.
    They have already set their minds that they are right.
    They are not going to balance their scoring schemes.
    They are not going to add a WR/TE position or a second QB position to cause their managers to draft a different mix of players.
    What they will do is continue asking for a method to limit the number of RBs on the rosters of their opponents.
    You may as well just give up on trying to explain it to them.

    I went another 3 months w/o commenting on this dumb idea.
    So, I think I should receive another medal.

    I would prefer an equation to ten different categories of yardages.
    We use equations for yards gained by passing, rushing, and receiving.
    It should be easy enough to put in an equation for yards allowed by DEFs.

    I'm all for including Punters in Fantasy Football. My concern is how to score them.
    I'd rather not have anything to do with how far the punts are returned. We don't adjust QB scores by the distance that interceptions are returned, and most leagues don't use a "pick six" stat.
    Let's consider a simple equation which rewards the distance of the punt (some fraction of a point per yard) plus an equation which rewards closeness to the goal line (for punts from the 20 to the 1 yard line, a fraction of a point for each yard closer to the goal line, but no bonus for rolling into the end zone).
    The distance equation above actually scores blocked punts. For example, a partially blocked punt (resulting in a short distance before the ball goes out of bounds) would score a very low value from the yardage equation above. And, a fully blocked punt (resulting in the ball being fielded behind the line of scrimage) would score a negative value from the yardage equation above, changing what should have been a positive number into a negative number.

    A "consolation" bracket is available now.
    The commissioner of your league can add it to your league's settings (rules) for next year.
    However, I don't know about a 6-team championship bracket in the same league as an 8-team consolation bracket.

    I also don't like the many wastes of space such as Brandon's Big Board and the Top 10 Players on some "expert's" ranking and Toyota's Biggest Blowout.
    And, in the past, we could easily find a link to edit a team's info on the drop-down menu for "My Team" instead of having to hunt around for little gears and checkmarks to click on.
    And, now that we are in Dec, thanks so much, Yahoo, for looking at Adam's suggestion that he posted back in Aug.

    On the note that I just posted, I should have mentioned the many wastes of space such as Brandon's Big Board and the Top 10 Players on some "expert's" ranking and Toyota's Biggest Blowout.
    And, in the past, we could easily find a link to edit a team's info on the drop-down menu for "My Team" instead of having to hunt around for little gears and checkmarks to click on.
    Thanks so much, Yahoo, for being artsy.

    The new design may be artsy, but it just ain't functional. It has destroyed the ability to easily post smack talk or read smack talk. It has cut the corners off of team logos, which makes some of them look goofy. It has made it nearly impossible to find the score of every team for a specific week in "total-points" leagues. It has given us expanding ads which keep pages from becoming readable for much too long. It has buried the Commissioner’s Note at the bottom of the page. It inflicts us with last week's injury designations through most of the following week. It has given us pages that frequently don't fit on the screen. It hides the info that we want to read under a notification of some stupid medal that we don't care about. It has increased the difficulty of finding the stats on players who perform multiple functions, such as a WR who sometimes carries the ball on end-around plays or an RB whose primary value is as a kick returner.
    And, you know, if I thought about it a little longer, I bet I'd remember some more things that it has done to reduce the fun of Fantasy Football.
    But, the one thing that I most dislike is how difficult it has been to get Yahoo to listen to my complaints about the new format. It seems as though the Yahoo people want to defend their new format rather than improve it to the point that it can become a good gaming experience again.

    I disagree. I don't like it that we lost the ability to easily post smack talk. I don't like it that our team logos are now rounded off instead of square. I don't like it that we cannot easily find the score of every team for a specific week in "total-points" leagues. I don't like having to wait for a page to stabilize (because of expanding ads) before I can read it or click on links to a player or other info. I don't like the Commissioner’s note being hidden near the bottom of the page. I don't like seeing last week's injury designations when I'm trying to set my roster for this week. I don't like how the page view so often doesn't fit my computer screen. I don't like how the notification of a medal covers the info that I want to see. I don't like how difficult it is to find the stats on players who perform multiple functions, such as a WR who sometimes carries the ball on an end-around play or an RB whose primary value is as a kick returner.

    No, I believe that the primary benefit of this change would be the reduction in "luck" based on which week you play which team. Under this method, that part of the "luck" in Fantasy Football would be eliminated.
