Do you guys prefer smaller or larger leagues???

Postby LS2throwed » Thu Sep 21, 2006 9:47 pm

Im all for 12 and up man, im in a 14 man league now, i just really dont like the 8 man leagues, doesnt take much skill or knowledge when your top 4 backs are LT, portis, mcgahee and parker along with manning, fitz, chambers and TO....


i much rather would take the 14 man league, where your third wr, or bench is tough to come by, plus you have to dig deep for those spots and find sleepers, look for injuries, search depth charts, do some actual homework to see what you can find to fill a spot....players like deangelo, colston, as well as back up rb's are not available in our league, you just have to be quick on breaking news first to go out and look for a player, which is what i prefer....


I was just wondering, how many teams is in your league, and what do you like better the smaller or larger team leagues

I love the extremely large leagues. 16 teams 18 starters 50 man rosters! Very complex, extremely competitive!

I'm in an 8-man, 10-man, and 12-man. I try for 12 with 2 RB's, 3WR's and a flex. That seems to spread out the talent just enough.

I find that big leagues are always more fun. Sure, its great when you have LT, SA, Holt and Fitz in your 6 or 8 man league but where's the fun in that? Its way more fun in a 14+ team league where you have to scour the waivers every week and make tough decisions to start some not so great guys.

Those kind of leagues I'm in are through CBSsportsline or myfantasyleague.com

I prefer smaller leagues. Once you get to 14 or 16 team leagues luck plays a bigger factor, I wouldn't even bother.

I actually think it takes more skill for a smaller league. Obviously you will have a higher caliber roster but you need to decide who to play from all the studs on your team.
