General Rule for determining number of DL spots?

General Rule for determining number of DL spots?

Postby MrMom » Fri Apr 03, 2009 8:22 am

What is the general rule for how many DL spots should be on a roster...my league has 21 roster spots plus one DL. I'm thinking we need more DL spots. How many are generally awarded to a league my size?

I'm not sure that there is a rule of thumb but my guess is that normally 2 DL slots are used in a league that size. Although if it has a large bench it may not be necessary.

Thanks...well, the 21 roster spots include our bench players. We have 16 starters, 5 bench spots, and 1 DL. Any other thoughts?

I would personally use 2 DL spots but 1 DL isn't horrible in a league that size.

I wonder how many teams are in your league? In my league there are 10 teams with 20 roster spots, and 1 DL slot. The commish set it up so there would always be decent players on the WW to chose from. Forcing the managers to make tough decisions.
