Deepest League

Postby shortsavage » Mon Dec 19, 2005 3:27 am

What's the deepest league you have ever played in? Could be AL-only, NL-only, or mixed.

I'm in a mixed 16 team 30 man roster league (15 starters). Someone has to have experience in a deeper league though.

This was supposed to be an interesting thread :-? .

Do a lot of people just not play in many leagues deeper than 12 team mixed?

My deepest is a 12-team NL-only roto with 23-man rosters and 5-man minor league rosters.

i usually do 20 team leagues with 25 man rosters. I like the fact that your team ends up looking more realistic and less like an all star team.

My sentiments exactly.

Deepest I've gone is 18 teams with a 24-man roster, but I'd be willing to go deeper if the participation would stay at 100%.

I love it when you have choose between Rey Ordonez and Rey Sanchez at SS!

Or pick neither and go with Neifi Perez or Omar Infante.

...that's still 120 players short of our league but glad to see some quality leagues out there..those 8 team mixed leagues are a joke...geez that reads a bit snobbish but the difference is like checkers and chess or whist and bridge...i would encourage all to add more teams and players to your leagues to broaden the experience
