Yea, if crzy is not back as commish - I'll propose it and we can all vote.
I would vote to keep it as is. A big bench is necessary for IDPs, especially if two of your guys share a bye week. Even more so if those also coincide with a bye for your K or DEF.
From my experience, most people drop their IDPs and Ks during the bye week unless they've the top guy at the position. People will always justify keeping a handcuff on the bench than carry an extra K or IDP.
As you can see from the drafting strategy of at least 3 teams - filling all 3 IDPs isn't atop priority. You can find recyclables easily from week to week. Also, it's a smart strategy to have two defenses on the roster anyway.
What I don't like is, having so many spots kills the FA and playing fantasy football is not just about the draft but all in-season management. You have to find the right balance between the two and if you severely diminish one - it takes the fun out of it.
