OF vs. L/C/RF in fantasy

Postby krysoul » Thu Feb 23, 2006 2:48 am

me and the guys in my league are bickering over whether or not the rosters should be set as OF OF OF or LF CF RF. does anyone have any suggestions, experience, advice about this topic?

Besides the possibilities you mentioned, another idea (which is mentioned in that thread) would be to use OF, CF, OF, since in real life, any outfielder could play LF or RF, but not every outfielder can play CF.

Makes it a bit tougher IMO, but an experienced player probably enjoys the extra challenge. I've enjoyed using LF/CF/RF but I don't think I'd want every league I participate in to have those parameters.

I play roto and try to max out my games played at every position, and that gets more difficult with the more discreet positions you use. You need too many back-ups, unless you have a solid bench player who can play all three OF spots.

Doesn't change the game too much. Gotta set the rule before the draft though, obviously.

I likeit - not really a huge change though - need to think about the positions a bit more is all. My favorite at the moment is LF/CF/RF/OF plus all the other usual positions - this allows some level of flexibility

I like the LF CF RF in my leagues. It adds some value to the player that can play all three spots and makes it challenging.

I also like it because it simulates a Major League team. That idea about CF and two OF spots was interesting though, because you would need to make sure you had a real CF when putting together a MLB team.

I play in 12t h2h fair size money league which uses lf/cf/rf but also has dh and "u" spot. I love it. Adds another position scarcity factor to the draft. Usuall good cfs are hard to come by but this year its proven rfs which are real scarce.

In my dynasty league we use LF/CF/RF/OF in addition to a UT spot. I agree it's not a dramatic difference but I like it and I am having a heck of a time finding a RF for this season.
