So it says make sure there's enough free agents per position. What's a minimum I should work towards?

That's a good question, I'd suppose you'd want at least 5 at each position. I've only ever see K, P, and QB go on shortages, so it's usually not a problem you'll encounter. If you're running out of other positions you can always move around guys who play on the O-line (e.g. tackle to guard), D-line (End to tackle, linebacker to D-line), and etcetera. You might need to keep an eye on CPU teams hogging all the kickers and punters on their rosters. I can't stand the Madden AI so I adjust a lot of their rosters for them, so maybe that's something you can consider.

Yeah it was QB and K for me. Added 4 to each so now they're at 7 and 8 respectively.

Still hasn't fixed the roster though (more explanation: viewtopic.php?f=22&t=20207)

I have an odd one in a franchise. I am running RogerJinx 2017-2018 roster for my franchise. I've used NZA editor for some minor things, salaries, injury removal, minor stat changes, etc. In the current season I am in (I run the Bears) for some reason the Falcons overall team ratings are all weird. The player ratings seem fine, they record is 1-1, but the team ratings when you look at matchup are super low. The overall is a 31, Defense is 30, Offense is 47, and special teams is 0. All the other teams are in the 80s-low 90s. Any ideas?
