League Position Setups

Postby maporsche » Thu Aug 11, 2011 10:14 am

I'm commish'ing at 14 team auction league that I've built with the following roster positions.

5 Bench
2 IR

Because I've kept the bench slots pretty small, I've made the player positions pretty flexible. But I'm wondering now if I shouldn't consider adding another bench slot or making any other changes to roster positions (adding QB into the flex spot for example, QB/W/R/T).

Based on this setup it's:

7 offensive starters
4 other starters (defense,kicker,IDP)
5 bench
16 total rounds

168 offensive players off the board during the draft (assuming no one uses a bench slot on defense or K)

According to yahoo rankings, this leaves the following 30 guys on the waiver wire (seems pretty thin, no?):

Marion Barber
Steve Smith
Steve Breaston
Toby Gerhart
Greg Little
Donald Driver
Tim Hightower
Tashard Choice
Earl Bennett
Donald Brown
David Garrard
Donovan McNabb
Andre Roberts
Aaron Hernandez
Ben Tate
Devin Hester
Jason Campbell
Terrell Owens
Greg Olsen
Kendall Hunter
Justin Forsett
Louis Murphy
Arrelious Benn
Chad Henne
Jermaine Gresham
Benjamin Watson
Eddie Royal
Ricky Williams
Brent Celek
Bernard Scott

I like the way you have the positions, except you migth want to consider a second forced WR spot, whether that means cutting back to 1RB and 2WRs with those flexes or something else (like just adding a second WR to make it 8 starters - prolly what I'd do). I think adding an OP (making QB a flex-able guy) in a 14-team auction would be interesting (much like ESPN's "Man's League"), but with all the flexes and IDPs you're already pretty unique and deep.

As for the depth, it's a 14-teamer with lots of starting requirements, so I think the list you have looks about right for the "value" to expect to be left over after the draft. With shallow-ish benches, there will be enough FA action to keep people interested, etc. without either being flooded or barren ;-D
