As long as you have daily roster moves, and a bench, you can platoon players in roto.
I suppose. The only roto i have played is the standard 23 man, everyone plays, no bench, weekly moves only.
I played a roto league at Yahoo last year. 5 bench players and daily roster moves. Up to 5 minutes before game time.
MAD You like Yahoo? I dislike free leagues. They invite kids to play, and since nobody invests anything, teams drop out.
It was my first Yahoo league. I've played for years, mostly at Sportsline, but I decided to give Yahoo a shot after hearing some people talk about the "Winners Leagues" being very competitive.
The league was pretty boring actually. Message board was quiet. 3 trades the whole year. 8 active owners out of 12 teams. It wasn't much fun at all. Not sure if I'm going to try it again next year or not. We'll see.
Unfortunately, and I'll admit it, I finished 2nd, because of 2 k's, and 1 save. If I had 2 more k's and 1 save, I'd have won the league. A whole year's worth of work came down to that. Ug.

That's how Sportsline does it. It gets aggrivating sometimes though. I had Mark McGuire in his final season. He hit something like .179 with 20 something HR's and I couldn't put him on the bench. He wouldn't even go on the DL so I could pick someone else up. Still fun, but a little annoying.
it requires a lot of prior planning......
I may be wrong.... But this is widely considered the standard format for rotobaseball (5x5, 23 players, weekly) All most all "Commercial Draft Sheets" and "Rankings"are based upon that format. That and a 260.00 salary cap for auction leagues.... again I may be wrong ... But that its what all my homework points out ...
