Im currently running a 12 team 3keeper league (1 VET(loss of 1st rounder), 1 ROOKIE(loss of 4th rounder), 1 LATE ROUND PICK-loss of round 12-15). example: my team would keep Stephen Jackson- 1st round, Marshawn Lynch-4th Round, and Brandon Marshall-12th round.
We have decided to lower the number of teams and lose the dead weight. We currently have 3 new owners coming in with 5 open teams available.
AT FIRST WE WERE THINKING OF LETTING OWNERS PICK THEIR TEAMS "FIRST COME FIRST SERVE". BAD IDEA SINCE ONLY ONE TEAM IS ACTUALLY WORTH A DARN (THEY HAVE LT). NEXT WE THOUGHT WE WOULD DRAW TEAMS OUT OF A HAT. STARTING TO THINK THIS IS A LITTLE SLANTED ALSO, BUT ATLEAST A LEGIT WAY TO SETTLE IT. WHAT ABOUT THROWING ALL 5 TEAMS INTO THE DRAFT POOL AND GIVING THE 3 NEW OWNERS THE FIRST 3 PICKS IN THE FIRST AND GOING TO THE SERPENTINE FROM THERE? HOW DO YOU THINK THIS WOULD PLAY OUT OVERALL? LET ME KOW YOUR THOUGHTS.....THANKS
I have never done this in a football league (only baseball), but I am actually a fan in limited keeper leagues, of dropping all teams' players into the pool and letting the new owners fight it out serpentine style. Then, they should get a decently high draft spot by default IF you want to make it competitive - if you want the feel of a true "expansion" team experience for them, then put them at the end of the first round and let them rebuild. They will still get quality with the swing picks considering 3 guys are kept by 10 teams. Each guy SHOULD have at least one top-2-rounds type player and then they can build for the future from there!
Hope this helps
BTW, that all-caps hurts my eyes
