I totally agree. I wonder if these are the same people that wrote off san diego last year. Remember kids, friends don't let friends be Mannings.


Just like I enjoy being in leagues where people dont read situations.

I agree with you though - hopefully people arent paying attention to the #2 WR on the Bears simply because its the Bears, but rather because they are a run heavy team with a raw QB, a tough schedule and competition for the job.

The reasons you just posted are the exact reasons I love keeping an eye on things like who the Bears #2 receiver might be. If I'm in a 20 team dynasty this is someone worth keeping an eye on. 8 team redraft? Well, probably not. Besides, as I said before it gets boring only talking about Deuce vs. James all the time.

Your right - if you play 20 team dynasty leagues - the #2 WR on the Bears may be important - same with 40 and 50 team leagues. ;-7

But - for the vast majority of 10-12 team fantasy leagues, this isnt a fantasy worthy topic.

I love playing in leagues where the other owners take a flyer on the potential #2 WR for the Chicago Bears.

I guess you guys just fail to see the point. Well, make sure you keep all your posts to the James, Moss, Owens, and other 1st and 2nd round pick discussions and don't waste your time reading anything else.

Or maybe they should play in some better leagues. I hate leagues where there are only 8 teams. Leaves little strategy to be used.

right - because 20 team dynasty leagues are so popular and much more competitive compared to standard 10-12 team leagues.

I shudder to ask, but what about the Bears third reciever? 8 catches :-? ? Over 100 yards :-? ? A TD :-b ?

Don't take it to the extreme. I said eight is not enough. I say a mininum 10 for any league. I'm currently in a 12 team dynasty and it is my favorite so far. You really get to see the separation between those who know their stuff and those who don't. I would say 20 is too many but 10-16 seems just right to separate the men from the boys. With eight everybody has a good team. Maybe that's what some of these wussies like--no chance of failure.

20 team keeper leagues aren't very popular because it is difficult to be competive and they don't have the time or knowledge required. Just because not everyone does it, doesn't mean that it is bad. You are correct though (even though I know your "trying" to be sarcastic), 20 team leagues are more competative than 10-12 team leagues, if nothing else just by definition.
