If you are used to H2H and are in an active league where you can have some fun trash talking with your opponent you'll find a move to roto very boring. The two don't compare at all. I always play my one H2H league with friends and it is by far the most fun league I've been in but I play roto for my money leagues since it is a better game from a technical standpoint.
That's kind of what I was thinking, I'm afraid some people would lose interest going to roto.

Our limit is too low at 20 per year, but around 50 would be fine (or 3 per week). Also, a minimum of 40 IP per week puts a premium on starting pitching in the draft, so there's nobody good left to stream.
We also split the payout to include leaders in cumulative Roto-style stats, in addition to payouts for weekly winners, final standings and playoff winners. Recognizing cumulative Roto stats seems to keep people from consistently punting the same category each week. Splitting the payout also helps reduce the emphasis on fickle H2H playoffs, which is the biggest negative to H2H. This way, the best team usually wins the biggest payout overall, but bragging rights still go to the playoffs winner.
Last year we had maximum 5 player moves a week but I was thinking of lowering it to 3 or 4. Also had a minimum IP of 25, but I'll probably bump it up a bit, especially if I add more bench spots. The only thing I was thinking was, if you add more spots for pitchers, doesn't it dilute the top talent you draft? Making top pitchers less valuable because you're pooling together 15 starts instead of 10 maybe?
We only have a $10 buy-in, enough to make it nice to win and keep people interested, but not enough that you feel bad about it if you come in last. And it's H2H, but no playoffs, kind of like premier league soccer, or college football; the regular season is the playoffs
