Like Joel, I'm not sure what you mean. Redraft leagues usually refer to leagues that stay together for more than 1 year but then redraft after each season.

Are you talking about having a draft and then totally scrapping that draft and then redrafting? If so, I've never heard of that and I'm not sure why anyone would want to do that. :-?

ok sorry guys i thought thats what a re-draft was bc thats what my commish called it. anyway what im trying to explain is a re-draft where you draft a team at the begining of yr and then by week 7 you select 2 keepers and throw everyone else back in the pot and have a week 7 re-draft. any ideas?

Yeah, that is weird. I think that I would go for one league like that maybe. But definitely a free one for fun just to try it out. ;-D

Don't like it. Punishes success in the first draft.

I too do not like the idea nor have I ever heard of it. The best part of fantasy football is the pre-season hype and pre-season draft.

Exactly. Is the commish that proposed this by chance a lousy drafter? :-?

actually the winner of the league this yr proposed it and the commish likes it so they are going to vote on it. The commish actually does well in drafting. I honestly cant stand the idea though. takes the advantage away from owners that know there stuff and study who to pick during the preseason.
