# of bench spots?

How many bench spots do you think I should have in a league where the starters look like this:

QB
RB,RB
WR,WR
TE
WR/RB
K
DST


Right now there are 7 bench spots, but I thought that might have been a little high, what do you guys think?

i think its solid...5 to 8 spots is normal for a fantasy bench and your good right in the middle with 6 or 7...besides, the more bench spots their are the more it favors savy owners.

How many teams in the league? That factors into the equation.
Finally won a league last year.

I agree with rewarding savvy owners, but no matter how well we draft or use the wire there are injuries involved and luck and we want to make this fun so I wouldn't go higher then 7 and you want to keep the number of rounds even so 7 would work there as well.
