I'll be interested to see how this plays out...it's a very deep league, playerwise. We probably could have gone with only one or two flex positions...there's a huge premium on QB's, which is why I snagged 5...RB's are going to be tough too. I do like that players like Thomas Jones or Montario Hardesty or Ben Tate have some value in this league though.

So, since I didn't stay, did HOU-TEX get any starting QBs??
If not I'm betting you could hook up a good trade.

I'm also interested to see this work...I've never played where there were this many active players each week.

Good luck to everyone (except when you play me!).

With the starting positions for each roster being so many, there is literally zero free agents to sift through during the season. It looks like we'll just have to play the roster we created.... :(

No. Hou-Tex ended up with Tebow & Grossman. Neither of which will be starting.

Which is the only reason I stayed during the whole draft. The roster is so big I drafted two defenses & two kickers. I really don't see a reason to pay close attention to my lineup in this league.

You had the #1 pick in the draft and ended up with Tim Hightower. Your 2nd round pick? Reggie Bush. Your QB's are Tebow & Grossman. I would definitely say it didn't go so well for you.

Twenty-six roster spots in all. By the time it was finished we were drafting third string RB's and backup QB's.

Find me on the site...I've got five QB's and the only one who may not be starting is Cam Newton, but I'm guessing he gets the job before too long.

I'm willing to trade...good WR or RBs wanted and can trade depth to you as well.

I saved my crappy TE, K and DST picks until the end because Yahoo tends to fill all positions before going for bench players.

I'm against a redraft because I actually really like my team.

I'm perfectly fine with the guys I drafted. It's more an aim at the roster settings than anything. Having 2nd stringers as the bench guys makes me feel like I'm not going to spend anytime with my week-to-week lineups.

So is this one of those leagues where you start two QBs each week, like 8 RBs and WRs, and some crap like that? If so, I don't know how any of you can stand leagues like that. I did one for two years and can count on one hand the number of times I actually did anything to my roster. Sucked.

If we go that light on position players (WR/RB) I would say two flex positions (WR/RB and WR/TE) just for some variety and the need to move players around with maybe a 6 player bench.

I personally don't add flex spots in my leagues I run. I just make it simple....but if we add flex, I would only add 1 - WR/RB.

The 10 bench spots is a reserve for each position. Say a player was on bye. You can't bench him for their reserve if it was less than 10 spots. The player would have to be cut....which would suck ass especially if it was a good player.

Yeah, sure. Add another bench spot or two. I'm just trying to stop us from doing another 20 round draft when the 20th guy hopefully won't see the field for us.

I would disagree with this statement. All the players I have on the bench will probably never see the field so if we stay the way we are my players will stay as is, I see no point in even trying to rotate players.

I think the advantage with slightly smaller rosters is the fact that your bench matters and there does require some forethought on match-ups each week.

Just my .02.

All the players on my bench will likely see the field. It's because I drafted players while people were snagging DST's, K's and TE's all early and waited on them until my lineup and bench was filled. It's draft strategy and a lot of owners didn't use it.

I fully admit that there are far too many flex options...I don't think it'd hurt to have a RB/WR/TE flex spot or two. I do really like the 2 QB lineup requirement as well. There would be more than enough players to start on a weekly basis for everyone provided they don't draft unwisely. With the current format, I saw that QB's would be at a premium and went ahead and stocked up.

I get where you're coming from, I drafted three starting QBs for the same reason. 2 QBs is not really my biggest gripe it was the amount of flex positions and total positions on the team. It was really a lot and I really think the majority of us got a group of #3 RBs and #4 WRs...doesn't do much for strategy, again just my opinion. I've never played with this many positions and I can't and won't say how it would ultimately end up-I'm just guessing and I'm thinking I would have no need to pay a whole lot of attention to this team. I would rather play the strategy game and have a need to rotate players based on match ups and work to win.

ccdude730
08-30-2011, 09:03 PM
In regards to the 2 QBs... I am gonna come out and say - I really, really do not like it. If you are required to carry 2 QBs, you are essentially required to carry a third to be the swing guy when there is a bye week. If everyone in our 12-team league drafted 3 starting QBs, that is 36. Not possible. And it takes some of the fun out of it when you have no starting FA QBs. I like my flexibility with A. Rogers and K. Kolb, but I have no 3rd QB, and I had no intention of starting a 3rd until I found out what Q/R/W/T meant and that they were starters. I have never played in a league that had so many starters.

And Karl, there isnt one uniform strategy for drafting in fantasy football. I am pretty sure my options for Defense is stronger than yours, but that was a choice I made. Maybe my defense can make up what points you get from your flex positions.

Ultimately, I will go with what the rest of the league decides as far as a re-draft is concerned.

Six should be fine regardless. That leaves room for a QB, WR, RB, TE, Kicker & a defense if you so desire. You don't need three RB's or WR's on your bench just because that many are starting.

Six should be fine regardless. That leaves room for a QB, WR, RB, TE, Kicker & a defense if you so desire. You don't need three RB's or WR's on your bench just because that many are starting.

You mentioned the 6 bench spots for QB, WR, RB, TE, Kicker & a defense. Say your starting WR and RB are on bye. Then you take off the WR/TE and WR/RB slots to fill the starting WR and RB. What is then being used to replace the WR/RB or WR/TE slots? You can use the TE on the bench, but what about the other one?

Situations like the above and many more can be resolved with 2 more bench spots.

If your starting WR & RB are on a bye you replace them with your backup WR & RB. You know, the guy on the bench in the first place?

I came out good in the draft at every position except WR. I drafted six of them to try to make up for it though. I have Matt Ryan & Joe Flacco at QB, Jamaal Charles, Michael Turner, Matt Forte & Fred Jackson at RB, Owen Daniels & Vernon Davis at TE, but the WR corp of Brandon Marshall, Braylon Edwards, A.J. Green & Robert Meachem doesn't have me too pleased there.

Just looked at the league site & they deem the best draft to Texas T.

I might make a deal for an RB.

HuttoKarl
09-06-2011, 09:41 AM
I've updated my trading block...I have a few spare RB's and could use a WR and another TE.

From personal experience...Yahoo autodrafts will fill out your starting lineup before going for backup players. I usually go through the predraft rankings and eliminate all of the K, DST and most of the TE's in order to accumulate RB's and WR's, then determine which ones are cuttable for a Waiver DST and a Kicker.

This time it gave me a very nice RB crop, but I don't feel I got the WR depth I normally do. Sooo...if you're feeling ansty about your RB's, let RoundRockKarl know.
