Ten teams is the traditional size of most fantasy football leagues, and it's a great option for those looking for a competitive challenge. With a pool of players deep enough for each team to have stars, coaches will still have the challenge of choosing free agents and players who are gaining ground. For an even bigger challenge, try using 12 or 14 teams. Since the player pool reaches 160 players, free agents will be less limited and creating a good team may require a bit of knowledge.
It's not yet to the point where you can't be lucky instead of being good, but it's much more difficult than a league of six or eight teams. If you have more than twelve teams in your fantasy league (with a size 1 squad), chances are that the talent level of each team will be low and it will be difficult to find useful exemption replacements. With a squad of 15 players, the general consensus is that you must have 12 teams in your fantasy league.In order to ensure an enjoyable experience for all participants, it's important to have a good balance between the total number of teams in the league and the maximum number of players that can reside on each team at any given time (also known as squad size).
