Large leagues are a lot of fun. The size makes them much different than the standard twelve teamers. It is a losing proposition to use standard draft strategies in the bigger leagues. An entirely different strategy is required to make the most of the draft. This article will look at sixteen-team leagues using non-PPR (Point Per Reception) scoring. We will examine strategies specially designed for the larger leagues to best attack the draft and get the most from the roster. These will help you form a new strategy for your larger league.
Down to basics, what are the differences I should know about the larger leagues?
In general, the larger the league, the more positional scarcity comes into play. In twelve-team leagues, there might be twelve starting quarterbacks you would be fine with as your starter any given week. But, when the number of teams bumps up to sixteen, there will be a few fantasy squads with poor quarterback play. This is true at the running back position as well. There are not many at the position you want to rely on each and every week as a fantasy starter.
