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?

I'm adding information about the crashing due to the penalty box to the troubleshooting checklist. Many have been asking about it lately, so I'm going to place it on the list.
