How many leagues can you handle?

Postby Peeig » Thu Mar 26, 2009 8:31 am

I have never played more than 4 leagues, but this year, I am trying to play up to 8 leagues..............does anyone on here play more leagues than this? How many can you handle in one year?

4 is my standard but I never seriously give all teams the same amount of attention. Usually 1 or 2 are essentially blown off because they aren't going to win due to injuries or just a terrible draft. I'm still active daily in all leagues. just not aggresively pursuing trades or anything on the reject teams. :-D

at this point in my life, i can handle exactly one team. i'm starting to think that i could handle another (a dynasty cafe league that i left this year), but i think it is just because there is an extraordinary long time between my league's draft and the beginning of the season this year.

After playing fantasy since 1990 I only do two leagues. My H2H in CBS ans the Yahoo Plus league that I commish.

Can't afford the time to any more.

this year i am doing 5
12 team 5x5 H2H Dynasty
12 Team 5x5 Roto Keeper
10 Team 5x5 Roto Redraft
12 Team H2H Points Redraft
10 Team AL Only 7x7 H2H

i dont think i'd want to take on any more than that...i'm sure i could do it. what i like about Fantasy Baseball is that i can play 3 different formats so i dont feel that the teams run together like they do in Fantasy Football

I am playing three this year in baseball for the first time. I know from my past in football the hardest part for me is keeping track of all the f/a on waivers...but it is still not to bad.

I generally play 2. I have done up to 5 before but I found it was less fun than just focusing on a couple teams.

i can play in as many leagues as I have time to channge the lineups in.. but in the end there is only one league that is important... everything else is just time killer and scouting for the one that matters.. i believe it's this way for everyone.. because in the end your gonna have James Shields on this hill for one team and James Shields pitching against another team and in the end you gotta choose weather you are rooting for or against James Shields...

3 or 4 is good. I notice that I have problems managing teams in different services. Like one week i'll forget about my ESPN teams, then next week i'll forget I have a CBS team. Stuff like that.

This year, I've set a career-high with five teams.

12-team 6x6 keeper Roto (CBS)
12-team 5x5 keeper Roto (Yahoo)
10-team 5x5 redraft Roto (Yahoo)
8-team 5x5 redraft Roto (Yahoo)
10-team 6x6 redraft H2H (ESPN)

With money involved and playing with close friends, my CBS league is my primary league that I'll focus most of my resourses on.
C-Doumit, Salty
1B- Fielder
2B-Pedroia
SS-Reyes
3B-Longoria
CI- Morneau
MI- Kipnis
OF- Myers Jennings Heyward
U- Ellsbury, B. Upton, Bruce

SP-Price Fernandez Miller Wheeler, Kluber
RP-Grilli, Farquhar, Crow, Veras
