My league has been around for 9 years and we've decide to become a keeper league for next season. I was thinking 1 of eaching of the following: QB, WR, RB, TE, K, DEF, and 1 reflex spot. Any recommendations?
Welcome to the Cafe!
Most keeper leagues that I've been in keep 1, 2, or 3 players. IMO, once you start keeping more than 3 or 4 you might as well just make it a dynasty league and keep everyone. Some keeper leagues allow owners to keep players with no penalty at all. In some keeper leagues, you lose the draft pick for the round you drafted the player in. That adds a little more strategy to it and makes late round gems even more valuable. One of my keeper leagues (False Start Fantasy Football League
here at the cafe) allows you to keep between 1-3 players. If you keep less than 3, you get supplemental picks before the actual draft starts. There are MANY different types of keeper leagues.
I've never seen a league that keeps 1 at each position like you were thinking. But that doesn't mean they don't exist, and if that's what the league wants to do...go for it! That's one of the many things I love about fantasy football. There are no rules when it comes to making up a league. I'm in a dynasty league (Flex-Factor here at the Cafe) that starts: QB, QB/RB, RB, RB/WR, WR, WR/TE, TE, K, DL, DL/LB, LB, LB/DB, DB.
I'd check out some of the leagues in the draft room
. You'll get a lot of good ideas from looking at the keeper leagues in there. Some will have 'keeper' in the title or description of the league. Others wont and you'll have to go into the forum and look at the rules & settings to see what type of league it is.
Best pay site IMO is MFL (myfantasyleague.com). Works out to be about $6 per owner in 12 team leagues. Best free site IMO is fleaflicker.com.
I hope that helps a little. Good luck!
