The goal of the simulation is to capture the contributions of these players in as realistic manner as possible. Let's say you have guard A and guard B. Guard A is known as a good pass protector and average run blocker, while guard B is a good run blocker and average pass protector. If you replace guard A with guard B with all other aspects being equal, over the course of a season you'd expect a slight decrease in passing efficiency and a slight increase in run efficiency. Every player contributes to the success or failure of your team. I'm not sure how even I would value a guard compared to a FS. Just think about your knowledge of the NFL and make your best judgement, and put as many good players on the field as possible.
