How I Got My Numbers
For current roster I considered any and only players with dead money + Claypool - 1 of Kramer/Carter. Cap from Spotrac. For final 53 # at position I used 2022 game 1. I put 5M in reserve for injuries.
For positional allocations I consulted Spotrac for 2022 allocations and Teamrankings for points/play. For budget, I eliminated cost of QB from totals in all my calculations. I chose the 8 best teams at points/play and used their average for offensive positions and O/D/ST shares of budget. For defense, I used the 8 best teams at limiting points/play.
