Fantasy Football - Limit Number of Players per Position
CBS, ESPN, and others have this option. Please add option to limit the number of players a team can roster per position. Stop the RB hording!
Dave Randall commented
Your system defaults for mock and actual drafts fills the starting lineup positions first causing kickers and defenses to be selected too early and skewing draft results. Reposition these auto selections to later in the draft process.

In an Autodraft, I'd like to be able to adjust the number of players picked in any one position. I do not want to draft 2 kickers, I'd rather draft 1 kicker and opt to get an extra WR or RB.
If they are hoarding QBs, then they are lacking subs at other positions.
So, are you using 2QBs, but just 1 K & DEF ?
That problem is easy to solve -- use 2 Ks & 2 DEFs.

In the rosters of the commissioners, there should be another category for the amount of offense and defense players you're suppose to have. Say the most you can have is max limit 15 off. and 15 def. So nobody can get away with having more than the other.

Would like for there to be a way to limit the amount of players per position to be rostered by a manager. In a 2 QB league especially it would be helpful to limit it to 3 or 4 to prevent guys from stacking their rosters with QBs.

Players should be able to set the "shape" of their lineup when they have to autodraft. For example, I want to draft 2 QBs, 3 RBs, 5 WRs, etc.
I was unable to participate in my league's live draft this year, but entered an extensive list of player rankings. I ended up with an A+ draft on paper, but it had a backup kicker and IDPs, and only 2 RBs and 3 WRs. As you might guess, that didn't work out so well.
It seems for players who have to autodraft, it should be possible to indicate the maximum number of players to be drafted at each position to avoid this problem.
