Free agency confusion...

Good morn ing folks! This is for those seasoned MFN experts out there:

Well, obviously, with a 6-10 record I must have some holes to fill. I have been looking forward to free agency since week 10, as I was anticipating that some needs would be filled. HOWEVER, it does appear as though there is little/no quality at any of the positions I "scout". Is it normal for the first one or two off-seasons to have very little free agent talent to choose from or am I not getting something important?

Am I going to wait around until the draft and hope to get something worthwhile that I can just plug in and go with next season?

Thanks for setting realistic expectations. :)

This is my guess:
Because this is a new league, there are few FA's. Expect the numbers to increase steadily the next two seasons so that S3 will likely be "normal", meaning more to choose from. There will be variance from season to season as a natural aspect of the game, even when the league matures.

Yeah its mainly because most draft pick contracts are for 2 seasons so I wasnt really expecting anything on the FA wire this season and probably slim for another season.

Plus your next season may be much better if you drafted a fairly young team as they will start to fill out there potential... well hopefully lol
