Ideal NFBC Roster composition after ten rounds

What do you think a roster generally should look like at the end of 10 rounds in terms of number of starters, relievers, and particular positions filled?

Whereas in the past I would have had an answer with x of this and y of this, I honestly don't believe there is an ideal construct and by aiming for one, you're depriving yourself of an opportunity to put together a better foundation with a different construct. My recent series on APE/scarcity/ADP is the impetus for this.

Now with that said, it practical terms, based on how I've seen most drafts progress, it is most probable you have a minimum of 2 SP with a possibility of 3 SP and 1 CL depending on the flow. I won't put a constraint on the hitters, you take the best the draft gives you within your overall plan.

1) the most important question is Main Event or D&H?

2) as Todd said there is no formulaic ten rounds by position any more - those days are gone
