Even with 6500 points available i don't go past 15 guys recieving points. I tried that before and what happened was I wasn't moving the lock bar fast enough and the longer you wait the more chance of either another team swooping in and getting a monster visit or you taking it into the offseason and hoping nobody drops 10k on them to steal them. I am much happier focusing on 10-15 with close to max points as really you need to maintain ~15-17 total per year to keep a 70 man roster well stocked. There is no need (other than year 1 of a 1* team) to land 20-25 recruits.

I'd say look at the lockout point, and consider how many points you'd have to allocate to catch up.

Like, if it's Week 8, and I'm 1000 points back on a recruit, and I'm not above the lockout line (basically what will put you into a recruiting battle), then it's not worth it to me to keep putting 500 points + the bonus JUST to try to catch up.

Now, if you're second on a guy's list, but the top team still has a big lead, then it may be worth going for it. Just keep in mind, once you start getting 1000+ points behind, your chances of being in the battle dwindle.

BUT, breaking a prospects lock does give you a nice bonus and puts you back in the hunt.
