    Questions to all Commisioners

    ...tae won, you ask a good question, although a little confusing.....no matter, my answer should take care of all situations.....

    the best possible league formation in any team fantasy sport, is to have a good balance between taken players ( on some teams rosters ) and available players ( free agents on waivers )....without waiver pickup limits (especially in baseball and basketball), if there's too much talent available on waivers, similar to the last few players on everyone's team rosters, there's nothing to deter daily 'streaming of players' which often leads to league discontent

    therefore, multiply the # of teams you want in your league, with the number of prospective rosters spots you're considering, and then look at all available players ( everyone should be still in basketball if you're league hasn't drafted yet )....for example, 12 team league and 15 man rosters is 180.....look at the 170-180 rated players ( guys likely to be on some team ) and look at 181 to lets say about 220-250 ( the top 50-75 players expected to be available on waivers )......the best possible scenario is to find the best drop off point of talent....this is usually accomplished with at least 12 team leagues and fairly large rosters...

    the opposite is the 8 or 10 team league with only 2 or 3 bench spots and guys ranked in Yahoo top 150 (some) will be available all year long in that kind of league, not very sensible

    hope this helps and good luck
