Which set of Cafe rankings should I use?

Postby mikus » Tue Jul 31, 2007 10:28 am

I began compiling my cheatsheets and noticed the Cafe ranks players for redraft and keeper leagues. I am wondering which I should use for my competitive league ... maybe you guys can help.

We get to keep two players in the round they are originally drafted for one year. Every subsequent year the player is kept, he moves up one round.

So this is a keeper league by definition, but which set of rankings would be most beneficial?

6 points for every touchdown, 1 pt/25 passing yards, 1 pt/10 rush/receiving yards.

I know it sounds like a silly question, but 13 of the guys on my roster are not going to be keepers and this is the league's first season as a keeper league, so in my mind I want to use the redraft rankings since most of the guys on my rosters are not going to be kept. Does that even make sense???

My keeper only keeps 2 as well. I usually draft as if it is a re-draft but will keep an eye on 1 or 2 possible keeper worthy guys in the 3rd-6th rounds. We can keep guys for the round before they were picked and can only be keeped for 2 years after the draft year and they go back into the player pool.

When the keeper rankings here at the cafe were done, I believe each ranker was under the assumption that there would be 2-4 players kept year to year, not a full roster.

But I'm just assuming that, because I believe we had some "Dynasty Rankings" which are a different breed just as Keeper is a different breed than re-draft.

So: Use the keeper, the are designed for exactly your situation ;-D

You would be assuming correctly. ;-D

If you only keep 2 players, you want to draft exactly like it's a redraft, most likely your 2 keepers will be 2 of your first 3 picks anyway.

Not necessarily. For the most part, you are right, but a good example is Marvin Harrison. You might opt to take another WR instead of him. You are right though. For the most part, it doesn't matter unless you are keeping quite a few players. ;-D

Another example is Micheal Turner, you might take him a round earlier because his value may sky rocket next year to rounds 1/2, and if you only have one worthy keeper you drafted he is a savior, and at worse case scenario you can deal him to a team who needs a 2nd keeper because of weak players to choose to keep.
