It will be on NFL.com so if you don't have an account there you will have to make one. It's pretty quick and simple.

We have 6 so that's enough for a small league. It would be nice to get at least 2 more.

Yeah I think 8 would be the minimum. 6 would have some pretty big rosters.

I have played in 6 team leagues before. It isn't terrible, but you just play the same teams so much. I prefer 10-12 team leagues.

Yeah but you got to expand the roster with only 6 teams. Start 2 or even 3 QBs, maybe 2 QB and an OP spot.

Nah. We did 1 QB, 2 RB's, 3 WR's, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 Def and 1 WR/RB.

People had good backups but not every team was really stacked. They were just above average. The leagues with 4 teams have the ridiculous teams.

I'm not feeling that style at all. 1 QB in a 6 team league? That leaves FA too stacked and too easy for people to get QBs for BYEs. 6 teams leaves a ton of talent out there for everyone, IMO you have to have huge rosters to water down FA atelast a little bit.

FA isn't stacked at all. Everyone will have 2 QB's on their roster. Nobody after 1-12 is really producing outstanding numbers. And to be honest, only the top 5-6 really put up monster numbers last year. The rest of the positions are fine.

The WR/RB are all gone. That's 18 WR's and 12 RB's and you still have 6 flex positions to get drafted and bench players. There isn't a ton of great TE's and K/Def is the same.

2 QB's doesn't make much of a real difference. It just inflates the scores. 2 starters or a bench and a starter is the same number. Every team will still have 2 very good QB's and will only need 1 pickup anyway since their starters will have different byes if drafted properly. It only makes a difference in 1 week unless you lose a QB for an extended period and even then, you won't find one producing like the starters on other teams regardless.

I don't agree. I think even 2QB starters for 10 teams is even fun. Very challenging. 3-4 QBs on roster. If there are only 12-15 QBs taken that still leaves plenty of quality in FA.

Quality yes. But nobody that is doing great things. And 2 QB's in 10 man is way over the top. That won't be happening. Assuming most people take 3 in the draft which normally happens, that's 30 QB's gone. That means if you lose a QB, FA is nothing but the worst 2 starters, injured QB's and the rest are backup QB's. Thats not challenging. People just pick their backup because there is literally no other option. You can't draft 30 of the 32 starters.

I'm not interested in a 6 man league. But drafting 90% of the starters isn't good either.
