Is 12 the ideal number of teams/ league?

Postby gabenterprises » Mon Feb 21, 2005 7:52 pm

How did 12 become the default number of teams per 5x5 league?
Anyone prefer slightly deeper leagues? The league I commish now has too many desirable candidates for the 12 spots. Would 14 teams make a significant strategic difference?

Thanks

I have played leagues with more and less teams. I dont mind leagues larger than 12 but I will never play in a league with less than 12 again.

my league is moving to 14 teams this year. The strategic difference is huge. I think much more skill is needed to be competitive in a 14+ team league. No longer can you go in and draft off of a 100 player cheat sheet since it takes 7 rounds for 100 players. Ill never again play a comptetitive money league with less than 14 teams.

I will only play in leagues with 12 - 16 teams. With 10 teams or less, all the teams are too stacked for my liking, and there are sometimes players that are all-star worthy on waivers. I tend to find more than 16 teams to spread the talent out more than I would like. With 20 teams, somebody may actually have to use Chan Ho Park!

I'm just talking about mixed leagues here. When you start talking about AL-Only or NL-Only leagues, I don't know if it's even possible to go much above 12 teams. Not enough starters at every position to go around.

It's all mostly a matter of preference, but these are my reasons for sticking with 12-16 team leagues.
