    Bench Spots

    Right now we have 8, I believe... But with so many bye weeks and injuries, does anyone else want to add an extra one or two? We'd set it up so you can put in a waiver request after the teams are set this week-end, so it would be like an extra round of drafting.

    I have no problem with adding one or two bench spots.

    I don't know. I'm going to wait to cast my vote until Round 18 is complete.

    I don't care either way.....but it would be nice to have a couple extra spots....kind of like the free agent signing period after the draft.....would it be a waiver system based on draft position for priority or a first come first serve free agent pickup system?

    I'd like to know a little more about the procedure. Right now, I'm drafted-out (and I've got my money-league draft tomorrow night )

    I'd just set it that way this week-end, and everyone who wants can put in a waiver request...

    Me too, I don't understand this "waiver". Remember this is my first FF experience.

    Considering that I had to pretty much "skip" the draft this year, it makes little difference to me also.

    I think that 1 or 2 would be fine. Would you set up the waiver wire in the same order as the draft then?

    We could do one as a waiver round and the 2nd bench spot as a free for all...in other words if you see a plyer that you want before the season starts, you can grab him for your final bench spot without waiting your turn.

    I don't mind either way...but would increasing the number of bench players limit flexibility during the mid-week add/drop? There wouldn't be as many castoffs out there to scrounge around for...
