For larger leagues, fewer base skill position requirements & more Flex is better, IMO

The more I think about it, the more I agree. Though I always found the idea of a WR/TE slot in particular a bit silly, but mostly I like the idea of streaming TEs, picking matchups etc as an alternative to spending heavy draft capital on Kelce/Kittle/Ertz

Something like (QB or Superflex)/RB/WR/TE/Flex/Flex/K/DST with 4 bench (+IR?) sounds good though.

Would support another flex spot (6 flex starters x 16 teams is 96 flex, or 3 players per NFL team, which is pretty reasonable) - maybe 6 bench? Wouldn't do an IR under Yahoo's rules. Makes decisions tougher.

Would support [next year] moving to a Player Copy system, I think that would solve a bunch of our problems.

I don't like IDP's.

Would prefer 2/2/1 as well, at least.

I would sooner support splitting the league into two, I think.

(I also think 2x8 or even 2x10/12 with some players doing double would strictly better than a single sixteen team league but I want to try this once and see how it's different and how it collapses under its own weight)

Either would be fine, a player copy system would let you run two equal conferences with cross over and still end playoffs against each other, and with 16-18 players, you could substantially increase the number of starters for each team.

Immaterial, and not to derail this topic, but I'm still filling some spots in an NFLB league as well, if anyone has interest in a secondary league.

No IDPs makes missing the draft easier tbh, since yahoo is too dumb to rank them and you get randos while people who attend get the elite LBs and DEs etc

I can get with that
Everyone saying no to IDPs due to draft reasonings... The best idps are hardly ever drafted. The best ones are always the one who have the most tackles at the end of the year. Most people draft fantasy bums like JJ Watt and s*** cuz they think name recognition means something for that in fantasy.

This supports drafting 4 or 5 RBs in your first picks. 3 RBs is your best lineup and it starves the rest of the league of RBs.

That is why I said 1 RB and 1 flex makes most sense in a 16.

I'm opposed to 2x IDP. At that point, just stream the dudes- no one's gonna blow bench spots on IDP if we have only 5-6 spots, so just punt the position after drafting and pick a safety or LB for a team playing that week. You're point differential vs your opponent would be minimal.

If we want to do IDP, let's actually do IDP and start 2 DBs, 2 LBs, and 2 DL and have a full smattering of IDP, increase the bench by 3, and actually do it right.

The best option for max fun is to split the league into two. Then a final week after the championship manually adding scores from the two champs to see who woulda been the grand champ.

No, because once you get past the first, like, 12 RBs, WRs will take over. 3 RBs is only the best if you have 3 workhorse dudes (which you won't get in a 16 team league). The RB1 will outscore the WR1, but once you get to the RB 12, they're being outscored by the WR12, all the way down- WR30 definitely outscores RB30 (which is why people are coveting RB up front)
