My initial thinking is that we won't be judging by stats. We'll let people each make an argument for the strengths of their team, and then let the voters decide who has the better team. I could see people using stats as part of their argument, but I don't think they should be the sole argument, in part because we know their stats would change with different teammates.
One big variable is indeed the fact that a Ron Brace could end up behind Vince Wilfork in real life when he's a starter for an Alternate Reality team. This is why I'm setting our draft to occur after the "real" draft, so we can at least handicap the odds of such things.
If someone has a different proposal for selecting the best teams, we can certainly discuss it, too. I think that is indeed the biggest weakness of this game.
