Max Add/Drops (50), or Weekly lineups is an easy enough way. Yahoo! actually has a Max Weekly Add, as well, that you can use.

Our max adds per week was put in specifically to help leagues discourage streaming if they choose to do so.

In one league I went with 50 max moves(season) AND 4 max moves per week...this way if someone saves up alot of moves for the playoffs he still can only use 4 per week.

last year the comish dropped a max add/drops of 5 moves on me midseason when he noticed I was streaming. It definitly stopped me from streaming and probably cost me 1st place :-t

Well, aside from streaming being a lame 'strategy' (it's been debated to death, so I'm not trying to do so again here), that's pretty weak of the Commissioner to not have the foresight to have a setting like that in advance and change things mid-season. He should have setup the league properly or suffered the consequences all season.

People will have opinions of you streaming but the Commish to make a rule change in the middle of the year is Bush league :-t
