Everyday lineup changes vs. weekly

What do you like better, and if weekly should Monday be the start of the new week?

I believe that weekly is not as interesting, but you need to stay interested far more with daily changes. you also feel obligated to make changes every day when you have that option. I am going to be in a foreign country for an entire month, and will have no access to the internet, and that alone I think will cost me my league championship in my daily change leagues.

What about the game caps though. If you change daily you won't be able to start anyone at the end of the year.

there are not always limits in daily change leagues. You can make the games 162 or unlimited. It depends on the league and the commish.

IM thinking about making a new league and want to make the best rules can since it is going to be a keeper league. Im thinking of making a unlimited cap with daily moves to keep the league active.

Check the classifieds if you want to join the league.

My league is weekly. I find myself wanting to change the lineup during the week though!!! The downside to the daily is that often, owners tire or cannot make that kind of committment and end up slacking off after (or before) the all-star break. The person who can go online everyday and make changes constantly definitely has the advantage over the others in the league.

B-) Played in a daily league last year.....a weekly league this year...

Wow...what a difference.....
I miss changing the lineups
I miss getting hot hitters into the lineup
I miss juggling the pitching schedule to get maximum starts

I will go back to a daily league next year..... ;-D
Fantasy sports are ruled by the 50-50-90 rule...
Anytime you have a 50-50 pick between two players, 90% of the time, you'll get it wrong!

I like weekly better. I find this keeps players more interested. Some people grow tired of making daily changes and just give up. I also like Weekly better because it involves harder choices sometimes. You don't just have to play who is playing that day, but rather think out the whole week.

Daily changes definitely benefit those who pay more attention. I am in two head to head leagues and one roto. the roto has innings caps so I just leave my best players in all the time. The head to head I can decide on a day-to-day basis. For example, if I am way behind in ERA and WHIP I can throw every available pitcher in and try to beef up wins and Ks. I prefer daily because it also benefits the people who were better at picking up sleepers that you might be afraid to give a shot otherwise.
It's time to roll the dice.
