Keep roster and bench sizes limited to a modest amount

Is there anything more frustrating than losing one or two of your players to injury, checking the waiver wire for a replacement and not finding any serviceable backups?

Do you know where those players are? Stashed away on some other owner’s bench.

It’s a good idea for your league to limit the depth of your teams’ rosters so that owners can’t stash away talent from the rest of the league. The league should be fun and there’s nothing fun about NFL injuries. But you can get over most of those injuries if you are able to sign a replacement player. That can’t happen if all the decent players are already on somebody’s team.
