how many teams are perfect for fantasy

Postby ballgame » Fri Aug 01, 2003 12:35 am

I'm playing in a few different leagues, but enjoy the 16-team H2H league by far and away the most. It puts a premium on making good quality moves, and knowing your minor leaguers.

Any thoughts?

If you're smart enough to grab Harden way back when, which we can as long as they're on the 40-man roster, you can kill it.

Personally, I enjoy 10-12 teams. That said, this is subjective as people like different things.

I'm in a 10 team league, and I love it. It's a deeper league than you would think though, because we have more positions than usual. In addition to the 9 positions (and we use LF, CF, RF instead of three OF) and utility, we also have a IF and OF spot. The two extra positions, and specific OF positions make a big difference. Even though it's only a 10 team league, you still need to be a savy waiver wire picker.

I like a 12-14 team mixed league...It leaves enough depth in the FA pool to make moves..but still you have to know your stuff to be competitive...

12 to 16 teams mixed for me. One of my leagues is 20 teams and it is amazingly deep. I'm going to stick to 12 to 16 from now on.

My 16 team NL only is my favorite. Only 21 roster spots. C 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, 3OF, 3 SP, 3RP .. the rest is bench. Its a 14 category H2H keeper league and its very deep. Holds for pitchers and K's for batters is just a couple of the wonderful categories. Oh and Daily transactions.

But the ones that Pay ... the NL only 10 team 5x5 roto teams. They get my most attn. :-)

I like the depth in my 8-team AL Keeper League. There are enough good players to go around, but it's deep enough that you have to keep up on the minor leagues and day-by-day happenings to stay competitive.

I like our 15-team keeper mixed-league at the moment. I think 16 teams would be ideal so the supplemental picks would really be scraping the barrel.
