My strategy in a 16-team league was to crunch the numbers, see what each player should cost according to my projections and buy whoever was underpriced, regardless of whether it's one I normally would target. As a result, I got a lot of guys I hate - Matt Ryan, DeMarco Murray, Chris Ivory and Mark Ingram, to name a few. But I suspect this mid-level depth will be handy in a 16-team format.
