I can handle up to 4-5 leagues (did it about 4 or 5 years ago). But enjoy the season MUCH more if I only play in my two private money leagues, which I have done the last few years.

Ditto on the draft addiction post. I used the public leagues to practice for my real drafts. Just find it boring to play with teams I don't know. Don't do it anymore.

Most I've done is 5, which was tough to stay on top of.

I am down to two for this year to focus on defending my money league championship.
Be excellent to each other.

Why draft and abandon your teams? Not fair to rest of league. I always play teams through. Just don't enjoy public leagues enough to continue.

I played 6 leagues (all yahoo standard 12 teamers) my first year of playing FB (2007). 3 first place, 3 second
I diversified a bit last year, played in 4 standard yahoo, 2 10-team espn, and 1 12-team FOX league - 5 first place, 1 second, 1 third

However, this year I will do at most two (almost definitely 12 team yahoo). Managing 7 daily leagues last year became difficult as I started college in the fall, and I simply cant put that much time into so many leagues (well, without my GPA suffering !+) ). My one third place team would've been a second place finish if I hadn't been sleeping in on the last day of the season and remembered to start Jesse Litsch. Not sure why I care so much about public leagues, but if I start them I feel like I have to devote myself completely to them.

Another thing I learned last year - FOX leagues are the ones you should be in if you don't have a lot of time. I managed my team maybe twice a week and won by 45 points :-b

Well when I abandon teams I usually drop and trade everyone first and jst puck up injured and horrible plays and let the rest of the league have my good players, I figure if I am giving up I might as well let everyone else have my spoils, so its not like I have Albert Pujols on my bench and hits for the cycle or anything

You're upsetting the entire balance of the league when you drop your roster. How could you think you're doing a favor for anyone?
