Thanks for the response
My core league is weekly. Its a hardcore league H2H Points league with a decent prize pool, and most folks are on the page daily, but since most of us have jobs where we are either traveling or dont have net access all day (and a number of folks have little ones at home) we found it much more pleasant without daily moves.
It also has some added benefits
1. There is no advantage to racing to the comp after someone gets hurt. The few guys who can sit and surf the net all day arent at any great advantage.
2. Streaming is virtually impossible. Obviously the occasional two-start trash gets picked up and played, but there is no real advantage.
3. No need for Games/IP limits. You start whoever you want each week, if you happen to get 165 3B games who cares, you played it fair, no one cramming in extra starts each week
4. More people are active/less likely to drop out. When there is a need for daily adjustments you usually see more people dropping out when they are out of it. With weekly rosters it only requires a couple hours (at most) a week to stay competetive, and folks tend to be willing to stay active even after falling out of contention.
