Currently, everyone has 29 roster slots. (C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, IF, 3OF, 2UT, 2SP, 2RP, 4P, 8 BN, 2DL)
Since the season has not started, there effectively is no DL yet. So with that, I believe that you can only have 27 players on your active roster. Stats for bench guys do not count if you leave them on the bench for a given day. The idea of having 27 was to make the league a little deeper by enabling people to have prospects or minor league players on their roster without having to play them.
Also note that the innings pitched max is 1325 innings, and that you can only get 162 games in at each position. Last year, my first base slot ran out of games and I ended up getting no credit from that slot for the last week....
It is very true that a couple of these teams were shorter on players. Some of that was that due to manager neglect, some due to having a higher than average number of players switch to the AL.
Hope this helps explain a little.
