Commish question on Keeper leagues

Postby AcesFull » Mon Oct 17, 2005 6:54 pm

I am looking to make my league a keeper league and am wondering what setup is the best in everyones opinion here. As much detail as posible needed.

It depends on how much detail you want to go into and how important you want each year's draft to be. There's no single best way to run a keeper league - some people are happy with one player kept per team; others prefer being able to keep as many players as you want within the bounds of a salary cap.

It's all good. :-)

As Arlo said, the possibilities are endless. Two things come to mind right off the bat -

1. Don't do it this year - wait until next year and announce the change prior to the draft.
2. If you ARE NOT going to use a salary cap, IMO teams shouldn't carry over more than 3-4 players at the most because teams can end stockpiling top guys and the league could end up lopsided with a few owners dominating every year.

Good luck! ;-D

How do you set the league up with a salary cap then?
Does the draft have to be an auction
or can you just assign value based on when pilayers are picked
or do you use values from a third party person?

mostly i want teams to be rewarded for good picks (sleepers) and at the same time I don't wnat teams to be dominant year in and year out.

I agree you should do it at least a year in advance because you go into a draft differently in a keeper league. I am in a 10 team- 6 player keeper league and we do NOT do the auction draft style- which I am not a big fan of. This is our fifth year into it and I love it

how long do you guys allow people to keep players? as long as they want? or 2 years, 4 years, etc? then they would be cycled into the redraft pool.....reason would be to keep someone from having LT the rest of his career...
