Just some advice from a fellow Steeler fan & Commissioner of a Plus league that's 3 years old:

Add 2 IDPs (independent defensive players) If you know your defense, you'll pick good players, and those tackles add up, believe me. Best of all, it adds parity to the league.... guys can't sit back & reap the rewards of money QBs, RBs, etc.. A solid team will beat the ones with the money players & no depth.

Add Stat Modifiers.... 1-time bonuses for landmarks, like 2 bonus points for 100th rushing yard, 100th receiving yard, 200th passing yard, 10 points for shutouts for team defenses, things like that. It adds a lot of depth to the game.

Finally, and I can't stress this enough, USE FRACTIONAL points. If you get the Stat Tracker (I couldn't live without it during football season), it makes that thing light up like a pinball machine. My buddy in Seattle, who I've played every year with.... he & I TIED our second game, I'm not kidding. It's been fractional points ever since. :)
