Allow a dedicated bench spot for Defense
I am attempting to create a more defensive oriented Fantasy League(excluding adding individual defensive players).
I intend to add more scoring opportunities and more incentives for sacks, interceptions, etc.
But at the end of the day there are people will only have 1 defense on their roster, unless it's a bye week. So I would like to change that.
I would like to dedicate one slot on your bench that could only be inserted with a defense. This forces fantasy owners to have more than one defense, which will ultimately lead to more decision making on who to start.
There is the option to expand your bench to more players, but some will not take advantage of that and still load up their bench with individual players.
This rule could also be extended to other positions. Kickers & QB's are definitely one. Most people will start the same kicker virtually every week(exluding bye's). QB's do get interchanged more often than Defense and Kickers, but definitely next on the list for "week-in and week-out" consistent starters, especially if you have a top tier QB.
Regardless if everyone else approves of this addition. It would still be just an optional decision by the commissioner that I think will allow more decision making to be made by each fantasy owner.
Thanks for reading!
