Adding a roster spot? More or less advantageous for....

Postby chipper » Tue Feb 27, 2007 2:15 am

Is adding a roster spot more or less advantageous for an experience player? Does it help the better player, or allow the rest of the field to catch up?

Thinking about changing the one IF spot into two spots, one MI and one CI.


Thanks for your input everyone.


Sorry if this is the wrong place for this.

I don't know if it really benefits or hurts that much...just makes for a larger pool of players used. At the same time, it can make "sleeper" picks more important. That would be the only advantage I'd see.

The more rosters spots, the more players chosen, the more information you need to know, the more the experienced/knowledgeable player benefits.

If you are playing with a player pool of 350 draftable guys, imagine how much more you need to know then the typical 200-250.

Right on, that's just what I was thinking.

i agree...anything different than "standard" options is to the advantage of the experienced player.
