20 teams, WTF? I one time played in a 14 team league and that was a nightmare. pick up RBs while you can. As the season goes on they get injured and it's a nightmare to find anyone free in leagues with a lot of teams.

WOW, 20 teams, that's just nuts

 Not going to lie to you, it isn't pretty. Romo, Charles and Gates are all very good picks, but the quality dropoff after those three is pretty big. Of course with an auction draft it is all relative. 20 teams are alot, and I would think that plenty of those teams would be in a similiar position. 

Of course this is not helpful to you now, but I think you overpaid for Charles. The RB pool is pretty deep this year, and there are alot of guys who would get you good numbers that would have gone for less.

"Romo, Charles and Gates are all very good picks"

Not at the price he paid for Charles! 105, FTW?!?!?

Josh Morgan might not be a bad 2/3 WR if Crabtree keeps fucking around.

I used to play in a 12 team league and then the commish upped it to 16 people and I dropped out. The people who stayed and played said they will never play in that league again. Having 16 teams made the league terribly boring and just about everyone lost interest.

Your league has 20 teams. It will be beyond TERRIBLE. Your auction draft wasn't a disaster.. it's your league that is the disaster! You need to play in a real league.. 12 teams max. I think 10 teams is perfect... everyone gets a "fantasy" team.

20 is pretty extreme, but I think 10 team leagues are awful unless you have deep rosters. It's a crapshoot when everyone is full of superstars. 12 is solid, 14 has always been my favorite.
