Help me understand the offseason though. At first glance the free agency period seems redundant to the draft. For example: I keep 10 and cut 2 so I'll have 2 draft picks. I draft 2 players, either never drafted or cut prior to the draft. Why would someone cut someone at that time? You have your 12, what player would be left out there that would warrant cutting someone you saved or just drafted? I don't necessarily have a concern with it, just trying to understand it.
after the draft you may decide to build your team differently than previously thought...using a different season of your player may cause your team payroll to change and you might have to cut someone to fit everyone under the cap
also i believe a long offseason can kill interest in a league...with the way this league is set up, the draft will be starting 3/4 days after the season ends...no waiting around...if you dont get your keeper list in you dont get a draft pick...you have to wait until free agency starts to make moves...so the late owners will need this time to fix their rosters
