Would it follow that for a league designed for beginners, less than 12 teams might be a good thing?

Again, would you say a small bench might be a good setup for a league designed for beginners/those not too familiar with NFL players.

Is that necessarily a bad thing? Motivated owners who study matchups will be rewarded compared to those that aren't as ambitious and just sit with one D/ST.

I don't understand how the bench size affects this.
Also, how many offensive roster starting positions are you figuring on each team? Are you assuming ESPN Standard league?...QB, RB, RB, RB/WR, WR, WR, TE. If you threw in WR/TE and OP (offensive player, any), would you say a 10 team league becomes like the 12 team league you were discussing?
Some teams might use QB, RB, RB, WE, TE
