I am in a keeper league (yr 9).
I had kept Ricky before he retired... and couldn't go back to my roster to keep another player (Chad Johnson).
So I drafted and traded around needing to replace Ricky's previous production (Clinton Portis... although until this past week, his has been questionable).
Anyway... I kept Ricky all yr hoping for an 05' return... so I could deal him for a draft pick(s). Finally right before out deadline, someone jumped on him by dealing him to me for a 2005 1st Rd pick. In light of the recent revelation about him not returning... I got a 1st Rd pick for squat.
We keep 6 players from year to year... so the pick isn't overly valuable. But it will help to get a nice # 3 RB or # 2 WR. Especially coming to me for free !
