We'll treat players that don't have snaps similarly to players who do get snaps and who are near the bottom of the league at their position. Barring the ability to see into the future, that is about the best we can do.
So you want to be relatively sure that most of your starters will get some snaps. But with a roster of 53, you should be able to keep plenty of developmental players.
We'll also have a correction for players that only get a few snaps where their statistical ability clearly would not extrapolate to a full season.
