Sup Ballers - I am the Commissioner of a Redraft league and this year we are dropping from 12 to 10 teams. I have two questions around bench size and playoff format.
Roster Details: 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex, D/ST, and Kicker.
Bench Size Question: With 12 teams we had a bench size of 5. Going down to 10 teams, should we increase the bench size to 6 or leave it at 5?
Playoff Question: At 10 teams would you recommend still having 6 teams make the playoffs? Having over half the league in the playoffs sounds a bit off to me. There has also been suggestions to have 4 teams in the Playoffs compete over 2 week periods. Thus the regular season would be weeks 1-12. With the first round of the playoffs taking place in weeks 13 and 14 while the championship is weeks 15 and 16. Or should we stick with 6 teams in the playoffs, week 14 is the play in games, 15 semifinals and 16 championship week?
Let me know your thoughts!
