Starting Roster REQ change for 2013

Postby Sex Panther » Thu Sep 13, 2012 1:56 pm

In an effort to keep up with the ever changing landscape of the NFL I'm debating changing the starting roster reqs in a long standing redraft league I run.

It's a full PPR league & I nearly changed the reqs this year, but against my better judgement I didn't.

We currently run the fairly standard:

QB
WR
WR
RB
RB
TE
F (W/R/T)
K
D

Next season I plan on switching to:

QB
WR
WR
RB
TE
F (W/R/T)
F (W/R/T)

With more and more NFL offenses shifting to pass heavy offenses and RBBC's, IMO it only makes sense to allow fantasy team owners to follow suit and get a bit more creative with how they construct their rosters.

With this set up, you still would have the option to roll out the traditional 2 WR/3 RB/TE flex offense that many of us grew up in fantasy with.

At the same time, this would allow owners to roll out 4 WR/RB/TE if they so choose or the 2/2/2 lineup.

Thoughts on this?

http://www.myfantasyleague.com/ has a feature were you pick an actual formation every week and set your roster accordingly. From Run N' Shoot to a Full House formation and everything in between.

Have not played in such a league format but always thought it would be cool to pick a formation each week. As if your typical fantasy football league didn't have enough variables, lol :-b

That is essentially what my main league does with MFL. You can run 2r/3w/1t, 3/1/2 or 1/5/0. We also, years ago decided to bump TE yardage for 1.5/10 compared to 1/10 for RB and WR to balance out the position.. We've discussed lowering it back down though if the current crop of TEs continue to excel.

I was in a league with your proposed lineup options a couple years ago. The only downside I noticed was a disincentive to trading. The more flexible your lineup options, the easier to deal with injuries. If your RB2 goes down, rather than trying to make a deal for a replacement RB, start another WR. Or pick up another WR on waivers. It isn't necessarily a bad thing, just something I observed. In fact, I joined another league this year, that has those same lineup options.
