League Settings Advice

Postby rowedawgg » Mon Feb 24, 2003 1:37 am

Whatsup guys, I'm a second year manager of a H2H REDRAFT Yahoo private league. I play with standard Yahoo settings:
C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF, OF, OF, Util, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P, DL
(16 starting spots), 21 max roster, and 5x5 scoring.


Here's my issue. I would like to add roster spots to the league (23-25 maybe?) To make it a deeper league. I hate it when the league's so shallow people like Aubrey Huff and Karim Garcia chill on waivers. Anyway, I would like to add a starting spot or two with matching bench spots, without changing the pitching/hitting balance too much. Last year i think I added a IF spot.

Whats a fun way to tweak my settings to make my league a lil deeper, without challenging less experienced owners? Adding a 2nd Util seems a tad cheap because it kills some strategy. Anyone care to share their own Yahoo settings??? B-)

Thanks for all your help people!! ;-)

Ok lets do Yes, No questions to start.


21 player standard Yahoo lineup, as above.

Say I add just one hitter, for example an IL spot, making it 10 (instead of 9) starting batters and still 7 pitchers. Does that change whether hitters are more, or less valuable???? I'm not trying to screw with the dynamics, i just want it deeper by a couple players!!

You could always add another SP and another UT to keep the balance of hitting and pitching the same. Then just change the number of players on a team to a 23-25 man roster. This will water down the talent a little bit and force an owner to have to decide who to start and who to bench.

I think i might mix the 2 strategies.... IF/Ut/Pitcher

I think if I just add a 2nd Util spot and a pitcher, it gives TOO much flexibility with positions so having rare pujols/bellhorn type eligibility isn't rewarded... Maybe it has no effect... not sure yet

you could also add an OF or two to the mix as well as a starting pitcher.

ive always considered h2h inferior...probably after my firszt h2h football league where i was 1st in points overal but 0-3 out the gate.

and theres plenty of trash talk in roto leagues, IF you know the people you play with. i play fantasy sports with people i know in real life, not strangers on yahoo, and the trash talk is year-round
