Should Roster Size be inclusive or exclusive of keepers? 

e.g. My leagues has 17 total roster size and 4 keepers.  Should the total Max Roster Size add up to 17 or 13?

Currently I have the # of rounds set to 13 and roster size adds up to 13 with the 4 keepers set for each team. I then use a custom draft order to account for any early round trades to line up the last round so everybody is full.  But I'm seeing some very odd behavior when I mock draft.  First it's demanding I take a QB first, even though QB aren't that valuable (4pts/td .025pts/pyd).  Second, it somehow thinks, even though I have the 9th, 18th and 27th pick that i'll get Dalvin Cook and Leonard Fournette with my 2nd and 3rd picks (after it demands I take Deshaun Watson or Baker Mayfield with my first pick) despite both clearly being in the top 10.  And btw Watson is 25 on the list and Mayfield no where near the top 25.  Just seems like very suboptimal game theory...

I seem to have fixed some of the wonkiness by keeping the number of rounds in the draft to 13 (total roster size - keepers) but having the max roster size add up to 17.
