### Adjusting Expected Action Values based on 18 player league

I'm currently in the middle of a 18-manager, 23-player(C,1B,2B,SS,3B,CI,MI,5OF, Util,Util, 9 pitcher) active roster (17 bench roster to be decided in a snake draft)

In making my preps for the draft, i took into account the reviewers expected draft value.

How much (if any at all) should i skew this ammount given my leagues slight difference (+6 standard managers)?

Thank you for any help.

What you should do is go to http://www.rototimes.com and use their 2005 projections dollar value calculator (since the 2006 projections aren't synched up yet) to see the difference in values for an 18-team league and a 12-team league. My suggestion: Figure out what each of these players would be worth in the 18-team league and the 12-team league:
\$50 player (if there are any)
\$40
\$30
\$20
\$10
\$1

That can give you a ballpark of what equates to what. My guess is that the highest \$ players will drop a little in value, and those at \$1 will now be worth ~\$10 since there's 150 more players to go after.

The 18 team, 23 player part is handled just fine at most sites, but the 17 bench spots are going to be a little tougher.

Most of the rags out now are advertising over 600 player profiles. You are going to need over 700. Plus I am sure that part of the 17 bench spots will be prospects, so you may need multiple sources. A top 100 prospect list will help.

I love drafting and playing, but a 40 man roster seems like a bit too much to manage effectively. Plus, 18 teams, that is deep. Best of luck...
