How many rounds should I go?

Postby jebatzel » Sun Feb 29, 2004 3:17 pm

I doing a 10 team head to head yahoo league with offline draft, so I can pick how many rounds we go.

There are going to be 25 roster spots, but I was thinking about doing 21 rounds.

Will 4 open spots be to much for people to get after the draft?

why dont u just do all 25 rounds?? thats what I would do, I dont like the idea of a GM getting a player becuz he was the first one to get online and pick up a player.

well everyone has to deal with waiver priority.

I changed waivers to be 5 days, so people can't say they didn't look at who was on waivers.

So all undrafted players will be on waivers longer, giving everyone a chance at them.

Then for the season I will put waivers back to 2 days.

o ok, u didnt mention u used waivers. I personally dont like them, but my league is set up in an odd, but good way. Only FA pickups u can make are made on the 1st and 15th of each month when all owners send a list of top 5 guys they want and for how much and then whoever bids the highest gets 1 guy. It adds a dynamic that u can use as trade bait. Say between the 1st and 15th a Bo Hart emerges like last year and is the hot commodity and u know they guy u wann strike a deal with needs a 2B. You trade him ur FA pick so he can get Hart and then sum1 else. It has got me sum pretty sweet trades b4.

The system only works because we have 20 reserves so we dont need to pick up and drop as frequently.

I still like filling up all roster spots through the draft and then use the WW/FA to tweak it.

I also don't think 25 rounds would hurt, but if you'd like to incorporate waivers in this way, I don't see any problem with drafting for 21 rounds and filling four slots afterwards, assuming you have active owners.

If you do that then yeah make sure your owners are active or else it defeats the purpose.

I have probably at least 4 people in the league that are doing it for the first time.

I think 22 rouns is what I will go with, so we have an even number of rounds. Picking up 3 will be easier than 4.
