Yes, having a larger league could address the depth question. But also it means getting more owners, and good, active owners can be hard to find.
Also I think the original Rotisserie League baseball roster sizes were modeled on an MLB team: one starter at each position, but then an extra corner IF, an extra middle IF, 1-2 extra OF, and an extra catcher. Of course in fantasy leagues, teams typically get starter production from all these slots, but in a deep enough league, it would revert to teams needing to start part-time or backup players in some of the extra slots.
