I understand what you're saying, but I think starting 3 WRs is too many. If they don't want to add a flex, I'd rather see them eliminate that 3rd WR spot on the starting line-up.
i'm completely the other way. in the league i setup, we have 2 rb's, 3 wr's, and a flex. which i like because in a 12-team league, not everybody is going to have a 3rd startable rb. or a really great 3rd startable wr, for that matter. so it forces hard decisions in drafting and trading. it gets to the point where maybe you start a chris perry (it's been done in this league) or you look around and the best wr available is cedric wilson. i mean, really, anyone can luck into a winning starting lineup in a 8-team, 2-rb, 2-wr, no flex league.
basically, i'm all for creating real player scarcity without making it completely impossible to field a team. and so for that, the flex position is a nice compromise.
