yeah idk how fun that would be. then again my league is the almost exact opposite. i think there's been one trade done and it was for nobodies. no one is willing to trade away anyone worth trying to get a deal done over.

Leagues like this suck too. But since everyone I play with drafts decently, they're better than leagues with ridiculous trades like that.

I'm not being elitist and I'm not trying to sound like an ass, but why would you want to be in a league that doesn't have at least 12 teams? When my friends told me we were moving to 16 teams this year, I was pumped. There's always going to be luck involved, so when strategy really becomes important, it becomes so much more fun. And it becomes more insane. We have so many close matchups every week because every decision you make matters.

I am in three 12 team leagues and one 10 team league

I agree, 12 is probably the best. not necessarily superstars available everywhere

Exactly. You want enough teams so that your free agent acquisitions and trades actually make a difference. In a 10 team league, it's basically 'pick a superstar' off waivers.

yeah, I think that's the reason for the lack of trades. everyone's team is competitive for the most part. obviously some better than others with only one or two legit bad teams. it's a 12-man so everything is spread pretty thin. some teams are dominant with RBs, others with WR, etc. it's hard to give up anyone worth a damn because you may be weakening your team in another position or decreasing flexibility with your roster.

with the way things have been going with RBs so far I'm really excited to see what kind of havoc bye weeks are going to cause for people.

Not at all. The best players available in my 10 team league are dudes like Jackie Battle, Andrew Hawkins, and Andre Roberts. Definitely not "superstars" and definitely not guys that are reliable enough to start weekly even in a 12-team league.

I'm in a 10 team league but we have deep rosters so it's actually deeper than a standard 12 team league. I'd rather have 10 teams with deep rosters than 12 teams with standard rosters and 1 or 2 owners that don't check up on their teams/don't know what they're doing.

it wasnt intentional, i had 12 people say they were in, 2 changed their mind and one refused to respond to anyone. despite me being all about trying to pull off crazy trades everyone is pretty much even record wise so far. the 2 people that are 1-3 are only doing so poorly cuz they really didnt draft well or because theyre injured.

obviously me putting trade possibilities like that suggests different but its fun for me and im only 2-2. but then again its my first year so maybe its cuz i havent experienced a 12 team league yet

i'm in a 10 team league and its getting kind of annoying. we barely made it to 10. all but one of the teams is stacked. the free agent pickups are irrelevant because pretty much everyone we drafted is going to put up ridiculous numbers every week. and no one wants to make any trades because they think "why make a trade when you have 6 pro bowlers who get you at least 20 points a week on your team?"

10 is the best. If you get ravaged by injuries, at least you have a chance to stay involved and still have fun. 12, a bad draft, and that's it for you.

That's probably one of the only knocks i have against 12, being in one myself. The guy with CJ this year also had FJax and has just been completely devastated up until this week. He really didn't have any other trading pieces because his draft ended up being so-so. Was pretty much a punching bag for whoever got to play him for the first two weeks, which slightly annoys me while I'm sitting at 1-3 while others had their records inflated playing a bad team.

We have 14 in our league and it sucks. There are no running backs.
