PostSubject: Roster Size Preference   Tue May 03, 2016 2:11 pm

I remember having this talk when I was a prospect but I couldn't find the thread. I haven't been in a league this size before, starting 22 players. What is the leanest you would run? What is the most a franchise has had for players?

I am down to 58 and I think that is a decent number. I wanted to be around 50-55, but injuries and byes happen so I figured I better run a little heavier. What is the thought here?

We need the experts to weigh in.........

(I have no idea what a good roster size is, but I wanted to post something here so it didnt look like you were talking to yourself again)
(size does matter though. FYI I think)

I would recommend 25 tops... This way you have 3 guys to choose from for bye weeks.

You welcome.

50 is a minimum really. I'd be comfortable starting a season somewhere between 50 and 60 but would expect to finish the season with a few more than that with trades and waivers.

cheers

That's my thought but I know everyone has different preferences. Some teams have 80, one has 27 right now but I assume 40-75 is where everyone will fall. Even 40 seems low to me.

I should comment to this but I don't want to change anybody's mind on roster size. So my lips are zip it

Leagues with rosters similar to ours that have roster limits seem to come in around 50-65 roster spots.  Not saying that's the right answer but that's what I've seen.

I don't think it's the size of your roster that matters, it's what you do with it! wink

Why would you want to skin a cat?  I've got relatives from West Virginia and even they don't do that.

Really comes down to personal preference... some guys like the lower roster numbers so they can give longer deals to players, good in theory (but you better hit on guys more often than not) and some guys like to have big rosters with lots of mini lottery tickets, hoping for breakouts from as many of your 1 yr guys as possible, tends to have a lot of turnover and leads to almost completely new rosters from one season to the next... I am usually in between but closer to the higher side, I am one of those guys that tries to build rosters with as much depth as I can get while still signing my 'studs' to semi-longer deals (3-5 yrs). I think I usually range from the upper 50's up to about 70, and seem to be most comfortable in the mid 60's... But again it really just comes down to your preference, which is the great thing about a league like this (and the ones I run) where you aren't locked in to a super strict roster limit...

Chris really covered it well with his post. Having less than 40 is crazy time IMO and the other rule I live by is...

If you have more players than the Degenerates, you might be fucking nuts.

I do think it is possible to have too small of a roster and no matter what you did with it you lose.

I much prefer smaller rosters. 40-45 range. I'm in the low 50's right now and it's weird.

The size of a man's roster should not have any bearing on how you feel about the man. But I have heard rumors about Carla's roster..... Too far? Too far???

Not even that fuckin troll could detract from such an awesome post! Everyone should go back to rosterbating because what you do with it is your business. Nobody wants to see it, nobody wants to touch it. Fantasy Football Rule #4: Nobody gives a shit about your team but you.

So with the draft over, RFA over, and first wave of Bidding over, I figured I would look at numbers. I know these are not final, but a blueprint:

DD
Malosos- 72
Outlaws- 71
Degenerates- 70
Muskies- 68
Gadibouts- 67
Dragons- 64
Eternals- 60
Africans- 59
Tyrants- 59
Redknights- 52
Mayhem- 52
Silverballers- 40

TT
Brawlers- 70
Pigskins- 64
Goon Squad- 56
Bombers- 55
Nightmare- 54
Nineties- 54
Golddiggers- 53
Fugginshitshow- 53
Divine- 49
Marauders- 48
Minions- 44
Steelcats- 41

Some interesting stuff here. Rosters range from 40 to 72. Average roster for DD is 61 years, and average for TT is 53.

Not that is means anything, just fun to look at and discuss. 40 players is nutzo in my opinion when you are starting 22 guys, but hey, if it works for you then you can get guys on longer term deals!

I'm at 70 now and don't feel good about it.  I'm still trying to make over the roster so the number should decrease as I move forward.

Decrease? How? Don't all the players on your roster need to be given contracts at this point besides players that are NFL FA's?

Carrying a few more than I would like; prior owner had some things going on that I would not have.  Still able to sign some longer term deals, and will let the others drop off next season...Not many other options available.  It's a process re-structuring/building; fun though!! vote yes

Or, he could mean moving forward into next season...He could also trade them away, or pay some WB's.  Right?  shrug

Very interesting to look at. I actually like where I am sitting right now. Maybe add 2 more players to my roster and call it good

In future years the numbers will decrease.  The prior owner had a strategy, which brought me into the process with 80 some guys.  Going back to past rosters, there were 83 one year, and 76 another.  When you start with that mindset, you've got a lot of guys with contracts that will need to be purged over time, while also bringing in my own guys.  I think that low 60s will be my sweet spot.

Should be fun, though.  Looking forward to it.  I did notice a few guys that are on both of our rosters.  Not sure if we're the village idiots (but don't know it yet) or the RW trailblazers.

I always thought that I would be in the mid to high 50s, but over the years, I think I've been more in the mid-60s. I think I'd rather take flyers on a handful of guys that I'm unclear about giving multi-year contracts to rather than betting on 1-2 guys

Yeah, I wanted to be in the low 50's but I did the same.
