Your favorite Roto league settings?

Postby kingmike74 » Fri Jan 22, 2010 2:27 pm

I am setting my league up and just wondered what some of your favorite settings are regarding position limits, number of reserves, etc.....


Right now in my 12 man league I have the following. I am going to try having a couple minor league roster spots this year for those who like to grab and hold onto the "next big thing".

12 man 5x5

C-2
1B-1
2B-1
SS-1
MI-1
3B-1
CI-1
OF-5
P-9

Reserve-7
Minors-1
DL-2



Having 2 DL spots as well as 2 minor league spots makes me think 7 reserve spots is to much, thoughts?

I thought about that but last year I had a few owners miffed at not having a DL spot.

I think maybe 8 reserve and no Minor or DL might be ok.

I like this minus a couple of reserve spots and minus the minor spot. Makes the league much deeper and thus uber-deep sleepers come into play in a league like this.

It's a good set up as long as the owners all know how to draft and it's not a new league. When the league is as deep as this one is, new owners who don't draft well will lose interest because it will be hard to fix a team using the WW.

Ditto. Although I'm not really sure H/AB is all that important of an upgrade over AVG (only a few guys really break this number). I've never really felt comfortable in the CI/5OF leagues, especially in 12 team leagues. I don't mind scraping the bottom of the barrel for bench talent, but I'd prefer not to have to play them everyday.

I also like a rather low number of moves and a lower inning cap as well, but admittedly that's only because half the guys in my leagues don't know how to manage their pitching staffs and end up screwing themselves by the deadline. I think those two factors are the two easiest way to separate the real "managers" from the guys who don't pay attention. It often makes picking up those MR guys worth it just for their ratios, even if you're not counting Holds.

I only want to play if it is a deep league. It's okay if achieved by number of teams or playing a lot of players (CI, MI, 4 or 5 OF, etc...). I DON'T want it to be easy to fix a team that was drafted poorly.

I also like there to be some anti-streaming measure. esp from the waiver wire.

yeah IP cap is necessary, games played don't matter to me because people won't stream position players.

I am thinking of adding a "max moves" for the waiver wire weekly.

Any thoughts on how many moves per owner. I was thinking maybe 3.
