How will you track each player's keeper status/number? What site will you use?
Our league is being setup in myfantasyleague.com and we are assigning a "Keeper Number" field to each player. When rosters are entered after the draft, the Commish inputs each player's keeper number as a value that equals the round they were drafted in -2. So if Tom Brady is drafted in round 6, his keeper number is 4.
So for example with your proposed setup...
Week 2 -
Drop [RB1] who was drafted in round 8.
Add [RB2] from free agency. <-- So this RB's "keeper number" would count as a #6 pick next year?
Week 4 -
Drop [RB2] who had a #6 keeper number.
Add [WR1] from free agency. <--- He would inherit the #6 keeper number?
I'm not liking that too much. I think they way we're going to set it up is any UnDrafted Player (UDP) picked up from free agency during the year will be assigned a "Keeper Number" of 10. This means if an owner decides to keep him, he'll count as a 10th round draft pick next year. If a player is picked up, then dropped, then picked up again, he still retains the #10 keeper number.
If a DRAFTED player is dropped, then picked up by another owner, he retains his original drafted keeper number. (Example, Matt Jones is drafted 14th round, gets dropped in week 3, another owner picks him up in week 8, he retains a #12 keeper number)
Same goes with traded players. They retain their keeper number.
