how many is too many leagues?

Postby sportsgalore » Tue Mar 22, 2005 1:42 pm

im currently in 2 leagues (both H2H, one free and one a small fee) and another one of my buddies wants me to join a 3rd (roto and $100 entry)
im just wondering how much more time it takes to do multiple leagues, and what all your experiences are? im trying to decide whether to do it or not- thanks

Well, I've never done this before, and I have 5 leagues... 8-o

Luckily only two of them are daily change leagues. I think the more of those you have, the more work you have to do. If you do a bunch of weekly leagues, you need only change things once or look for waiver steals when players break out.

I am pretty sure someone at the Cafe did 14 or more leagues last year (Pedantic?)... !+) :-o

Depends how much time and effort you want to put into each league. I always join four leagues with my main Yahoo ID and take those leagues the most serious, then I join a handful of others, usually live drafts that I did for practice before my more serious drafts. Those leagues, I just check in on once a week make sure nobody is on the DL or make a waiver wire claim here and there.

all depends on how much time you have on your hands and your experience level imo..... if u are somewhat of a beginner i would stick with 2 or 3 leagues, and then at midseason if you are handling things well, you can always sign up for a midseason league as well.... as of now, i am in 4 leagues which are all keepers and me and a friend have a new style league(game day ritual) that we are sharing due to neither one of us ever playing in that type of league before...... but anyways to answer your question 3 or 4 real good leagues will definitely keep u busy all year..... back in 2002 i think i done like 16 leagues, but it just wears u out and u can notkeep your eye on every one of them like you would like..... ;-D

None :-o

Most I've played was 2 and I wouldn't recommend more than that if you plan on getting anything else done.
