During my replays, I use the actual box score and attempt to replicate the game versus establishing “game averages”. One of the challenges of playing like that is ensuring players don’t exceed their actual rushing or passing attempts to the point where overall statistics are skewed. With regard to running backs, I’ve found Ray Dunlap’s Quota Chart to be the answer. It establishes a ceiling based off the running back’s actual carries for that season. For example, New York Jet’s running back, Leon Johnson, had 41 carries during the 1998 season; however, Ray’s system would allow him a maximum of 65 carries. This provides tremendous flexibility, prevents over usage of other players and doesn’t have a negative impact on team and individual statistics.
