I hate to beat a dead horse, but does anyone think I'd be better off reducing my roster requirements, or keeping them the same and adding the more bench players. I like playing with 11 players, and 3 of them are on D anyways. Thanks!
Like most people have said, 4 bench players is far too few for your starting requirements. I have one league that starts 9 (qb, rb, rb, wr, wr, wr/rb, te, k, d) and only has 5 bench players. I thought that kinda sucked last year. It does keep the WW more active but IMO that's not what fantasy football should be about. I think you should be able to draft a team with the proper amount of backups to take injuries & bye weeks into consideration. With small benches you sometimes end up having to drop good players just to get a bye week replacement. Why should another owner benefit from your draft just because the bench is too small? I'd keep your starting requirements the way they are and increase the bench to 7 or 9.
