which would you say is the better fantasy baseball player?
The guys that has made 50 moves, likely didn't make "smart upgrades." If he had made "smart upgrades," he wouldn't have had to make so many because his roster would be filled up with undroppable productive players.
He's probably a flavor-of-the-week manager that BLINDLY picks up every guy that has a few great games in a row. That takes no skill, all it takes is sitting by the computer and checking box scores.
That's why leagues with a strict limit on the number of moves a manager can make during a season are more challenging. That way, each manager has to decide if a flavor-of-the-week is worth spending a move on, rather than mindlessly picking each one up and seeing if they produce.
A limit on moves is also good because it levels the playing field for managers that can't get to the computer every second of the day. Because blindly picking up every flavor-of-the-week is detrimental to a team, instead of being the good strategy it is in leagues with no limit on moves.
