More players = More roto parity?

Postby bspel55 » Sat Feb 14, 2009 12:24 pm

It has been the demand of many of the managers in my league that I expand the number of positions. In my mind this is a good idea because we are also switching to roto from H2H and in roto with a few studs on a small roster, the league will just be dominated. More players allows more of a chance for a balanced league as it will take strategy the entire draft to get a good team.

Anyway here are the positions I was thinking about going with:
C, 1B, 2B, 3B, CI, MI, LF, CF, RF, OF
BNx4, DL

It is a 6x6 at the moment with Walks and HLD being the extra two. Any other ideas on how to improve the league or critique the format is good by me, thanks for all the help!

Did you mean to leave out SS? The basic rotisserie league uses C, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, MI, CI, 5OF, U, 9P, 3BN. Some use 2C, but I just think that's dumb.

I wouldn't separate the OF into L, C, and R. Also, just using P allows different pitching strategies. Some people may use more relievers to do better in SV, ERA, and WHIP. Some may load up on starters. Either way, you'll want to have either a cap on Games Started or Innings Pitched to prevent streaming.

I like your stat categories. I am considering adding walks and holds to mine as well.
