Could you please tell me how you would set up max players for a Yahoo league that is configured like this?

QB, WR, WR, WR, RB, RB, TE, W/R/T, K, DEF, DB, DB, DL, DL, LB, LB, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN

I would set the max value at 1 for QBs, 5 for WRs and 6 for RBs. 1 for TE and 1 for D and K. the software will not prevent you from drafting any position if the value is there and you want to stray from it. i would just pick up Extra Idps, Qbs Tes and Ks as needed for byes.

I would change the Qb max to one and the Qb/rb/wr max to 0 since you dont start one at that position. other than that it looks fine. Remember, you can vary from those recommendations if you think there is value to be had at other spots and the draftanalyzer will then recalculate your next picks down the line. You have a small bench for such large starting rosters. Thats why I say keep the max at Qb set at one. in a 1 qb league there will still be plenty of starters left on the waiver to add as needed. Same with the IDPs.

But I thought the MAX should equal the total rounds...which is 24.., we have 8 Bench players... where should I add the last two... here is where I am... (draft starts in 40 mins...)

Basically you only have 5 extra spots for a bench.I would use those slots to fill the most used positions. 3WRS and 2RBs (really 3 because you should play an RB in your flex) these bench players should be 2 WRS and 3RBs in my opinion. How ever, Please remember that can be reversed if you prefer or, If you see a great value pick. meaning if someone drops way down and you just cant pass him up in that round. I have seen brees drop into the fourth. THATS A STEAL I could not pass on. If for no other reason than his trade value. I just traded him for roddy white. A 2nd round pick.

I dont know how many more drafts you will be doing but, I ALWAYS recommend that you do at least a few mock drafts on the site that you will be drafting in. Players value really does vary from site to site. It vey very useful to know where players are being drafted so you know if you can wait a round or not. There are many steals from site to site and its always good to know who they are and when to take them.
