BeanTown wrote:How is the player pool in ESPN vs the player pool in CBS? I'm the commish of my league and we're thinking about making the switch from Yahoo to CBS mainly because of the deeper player pool and the keeper freindly set up. Our league is basic H2H 6x6 but the player pool and keeper league stuff is a big consideration. Maybe ESPN would be an option? Thanks in advance.
Honestly I don't remember running into any missing player issues like I've ran into in Yahoo before and my "deeper" league is a mixed 12 team 5x5 H-2-H with C/1B/2B/3B/SS/MI/CI/4 OF/9 P and 3 BN (or something like that). But again, last year was only my first year running on ESPN but I was happy.
As for the keeper league setup, teams in our leagues get to keep 4 per year (two perennials and two later drafted players) and all the owners have to do is go under the Keeper section and pick the players that they want to keep. Obviously I have to manually check to make sure that they followed our league specific rules, but ESPN keeps track of the players and the first four rounds of the draft are automatically filled with the keepers.
