I played 6 leagues (all yahoo standard 12 teamers) my first year of playing FB (2007). 3 first place, 3 second
I diversified a bit last year, played in 4 standard yahoo, 2 10-team espn, and 1 12-team FOX league - 5 first place, 1 second, 1 third
However, this year I will do at most two (almost definitely 12 team yahoo). Managing 7 daily leagues last year became difficult as I started college in the fall, and I simply cant put that much time into so many leagues (well, without my GPA suffering
). My one third place team would've been a second place finish if I hadn't been sleeping in on the last day of the season and remembered to start Jesse Litsch. Not sure why I care so much about public leagues, but if I start them I feel like I have to devote myself completely to them.
Another thing I learned last year - FOX leagues are the ones you should be in if you don't have a lot of time. I managed my team maybe twice a week and won by 45 points
