    Guys comment on my league set up.

    H2H One Win



    Roster Positions

    C, C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, CI, MI, IF, OF, OF, OF, Util, Util, SP, SP, SP, RP, RP, RP, P, P, P, P, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, DL, NA

    Do you guys see any pitfalls with this kind of set up in a 10 manager league?

    • Those 3 positions CI MI and IF are 100% useless. Those positions should be bench positions. I also think iot's 100% wrong to use only1 DL and Not Available position when you can use 5. There's no reason to handcuff your managers. But if you only used one, that's exactly what your doing on the Starting line up's, DL and NA. There's also absolutely no reason to draft 2 catchers. The second one should strictly be a back up on the bench.

    • huge issue with balance, guys will load up on RP to control WHIP and ERA and try to take SV since you only require 3 SP, and W's are a random, take a look at Cliff Lee a couple years ago, pitches well and get a couple W's. QS not enough to balance it out. Your lineup will be very week in the middle infield with 3 starting spots, you have a chance to play 4 1B, and that could be an imbalance also depending who notices in the draft they can do that, and leaving plenty of good OF's on the board by only having 3 starting spots required, it means the top 30 players could get drafted and the rest left as a free agent. by comparison, with the top 20 MI taken, that means very few are left as free agents. I could go on, but you get the point by now.

      This is the kind of league i would check the settings and avoid signing up

    • I think I would add an extra outfielder or two to balance it out, especially since you use so many infielders. Maybe the two Util spots will do that anyway, though. Also, you might consider whether one DL spot is enough.

    • Most importantly does the roster set up devalue pitching or hitting or both?
