What I have noticed though is most bowler ratings seem to focus too much on longevity/total wickets and WPM. Once the WPM is 5 or over that's good enough and points should max out there, as it seems to reward bowlers who had little support otherwise. For mine, the most important role of bowlers is to win matches, so wins, average and s/r followed by wpm should be the focus.
Just my humble opinion.

Moeen is a perfectly fine bowler FFS
But yes cap wpm after 5 and also cap longevity similar to the batting ratings.
Of equally great importance, place greater weight on percentage of top order wickets taken over lower order wickets, especially #9-11.

Bowling averages, strike-rates, and WPM have all been adjusted.
But let's discuss all that when I reveal the bowlers.

you also get the advantage of not having to bowl long spells or bowl too much against batsmen who have settled in - that's a significant advantage in terms of average.
