How deep is too deep?


#1

10 Man league. 2 QB, 2 RB, 3WR, 2FLX, 1 TE. No D/ST or Kickers.
Is an 8 man bench too deep?
Do you find that more depth is better because you can keep your players you want and it rewards those who know player value, or is LESS depth better because it forces certain people who may not know player-value to drop guys they otherwise wouldnt.

that question is easily answered with a question of my own. do you want an active, trading/waiver system? then make it more like a 4 or 5 man bench. do you want it to be more laid back kind of league for more casual players? deeper benches takes care of that.

Excellent point. It’s a league for my Groomsmen for an upcoming wedding, they’re all into it but more than half are prob gonna have a pretty casual attitude.

if its kind of a half and half mentality, i split the difference then. make it a 6 man bench so that the traders and waiver guys can still get their fix, and also the casuals can just draft and pick up players at their leisure to compete with.
