I'm a big fan of limiting bench spots as well. We start 2RB 2WR 1Flex and there's one bench spot for every starting spot.
It's far too easy to bury JJ Arrington or any non-producing player in most leagues and shove in another replacement player from the glutton of backs you horded at the draft. Smaller benches force more thinking with your roster transactions. You think farther into the season, look at matchups more closely..
I disagree with you completely on this. So, the guy who shows up to the draft with a magazine he just bought or a cheatsheet he just printed of the internet. Has done no work or research. Drafts 7 crappy players, but wait he loses week 1 and is first guy to pick up Willie Parker and know his team is better. Why not give the guy who researched and knew Parker would be good if he got a shot, drafted him in round 18, and puts him in the lineup. Reward the guys who do the work prior to the season, not the guy who luckily picks up a guy who gets hot.
Never Bench Your Studs, Until They Are No Longer Studs, Which Means You Can Then Bench Them!
