H2H vs 5x5

Postby hett2333 » Fri Mar 07, 2008 4:13 pm

I'm in a 12 team mixed, h2h total points league (categories do not matter). We set our lineup once a week and for the past 6 years we have started 9 hitters and 7 pitchers (standard h2h starting lineup). The problem I have always had is how deep the free agent pool. In 5x5 roto, 12 team mixed vanilla leagues, standard lineups start 14 hitters and 9 pitchers (daily transactions).
For those of you who know h2h scoring leagues, would I run into problems if we increased our lineups to 14 and 9 like roto leagues do? Can I get away with it in weekly lineups? I like the concept of H2H leagues, but I like the roto starting format better...can the two be combined?

Increase the size of your bench and you won't have to start more players, and it should thin out the quality of players in free agency.

We start 10 hitters in my league. Not sure I'd increase it over 11 though
