My 2nd time asking this...

the Utility can be anyone. How do i setup lineup requirements to account for 2 utility spots and assure those players (when drafted) are accounted for in the cumulative team stats within the draft master?

You will have to use the Start Min and Start Max columns in the League Setup Wizard. They should look like:

Starters: 8
POS MIN MAX
QB 1 2
RB 2 3
WR 2 3
TE 1 2
DT 1 1
K 1 1

How would you set up this line-up
Starters: 8
QB: 1
RB: 1 or 2
WR/TE: 3 or 4 (Depending on your RB starters)
K: 1
DEF: 1
If I use the utility WR/TE the scoring configuration doesn't show up and the rankings are completely out of whack!

You could try:
8
1 1 QB
1 2 RB
1 3 WR
1 3 TE
1 1 K
1 1 DEF

If you want to force a TE. Or:
8
1 1 QB
1 2 RB
1 4 WR
0 3 TE
1 1 K
1 1 DEF

If you dont care to have a TE.

Interesting stuff happening. I used the following initially:

1 1 QB
1 2 RB
0 3 WR
0 3 TE
1 1 K
1 1 DEF

Then I imported the baseline results of my last years draft (QB: 2.06/ RB: 4.00/ WR: 4.00/ TE: 1.44/ DT: 1.23/ K: 1.00) and everything appeared everything squared away and reasonable (btw I switch between both of your suggestions, but there was no change in the rankings).

After I finished, I went back into the advance settings changed the Roster set-up to show:

1 1 QB
1 2 RB
0 0 WR
0 0 TE
1 1 K
1 1 DEF
3 4 WR/TE

When I did this Jimmy Graham jumped from the #9 spot to the #2. Then after I clicked "finished" and when back in the slider on the "player value set-up" averaged out the sliders from when I using WR and TE seperately (creating a WR/TE slider). The jump makes since because TE are awarded 1.5 PPR vs. WR earning 1 PPR and RB earning .5 PPR.

I don't necessary have a problem with the rankings I just found this very interesting. Now if only when I did the Mock Draft, DM would draft the TEs in this set up...but that been a seperate problem over the years.

I've been using Draft Master for almost 6 years. I love it because I can add custom scoring some of the other Draft software out there can't. I feel this gives me the best advantage to ID those players with the best value for my league and scoring format.

Do you have a suggestion for a Player Value set-up for just a standard scoring system (6 pt TDs across all positions)? I seem to be leaning towards the Average Player set-up the Keeper league suggestions seem to extreme...

Thanks...

Why don't you email me your leagueName.xml file and I will take a look at the value settings given your league size and settings.
