After looking at the scoring for your league, I think a lot of the typical rules you normally hear go out the window:
Wait on a QB. I would definitely try to grab one of the top 3 QBs in your league. The fall off from the top guy to the 10th average scoring QB is more than 10 points.
Load up on WR and RB early. If you can get one of the top 5 RBs and top 3 WRs, go for it... but I don't think you need to be reaching for those positions early. The scores even out pretty quickly once you get past that top tier or two at those positions.
Wait on IDP. I wouldn't be afraid to be one of the first guys to draft IDP in this league, especially at the DT and DE positions. The scoring so heavily favors the top guys at these positions that I would make them a priority.
My strategy after a brief perusal of your league would be to try to get one of the top 2 players at QB, maybe WR, TE, DT and DE, and go from there. I don't mean to use your first 4 picks on those positions, but I can see taking a QB in the 1st round and a TE in the 2nd or 3rd. If you pick at the turn, you might even be able to get one of the top 2 WR there. I'm guessing mere convention will keep others in your league from even thinking about IDP until the 5th or 6th round... and even then LBs usually go first in IDP leagues. All that being said, you never know what will happen, especially in a league like this, with unusual scoring settings. It looks like the commissioner did a good job evening out most of the positions, so if you can get a top 2 player at even 2 or 3 of the positions I mentioned earlier, I think you'll have a good start to a really good team.
I'm interested to see how this turns out. Please post an update after your draft.
