First year Keeper league: Snake/standard draft?

Postby pfwygalways » Fri Oct 10, 2008 2:58 pm

This may have been discussed to exhaustion, but my team is going to dynasty league this year we can keep two players for up to three years. Is there a consensus on whether we do next years draft after our keepers as a snake draft or standard draft?

I have said to keep it as a snake style draft, we are basically just taking players off our team for the first two rounds so I dont see what changes. We have already decided we go by last years schedule so those we the worst choices for keepers would still have a better shot at a premier player.

Considering the massive difference between a two-player keeper and a dynasty league I would have to go with snake. In fact, I would consider blowing up the league altogether and starting over.

My dynasty (18 keepers) now does a standard draft, based on a consolation bracket for the non-playoff teams and playoff slotting. Since its only 6 rounds (and really, after the second its all practice-squad fillers, kickers and backup defenses) the impact is lessened.

I'll agree with Rusty. For a 2 player keeper, it has to be snake style. IF you are going to a true dynasty format, keeping everyone and only drafting rookies, then you can go to standard draft.

and yes, to clarify, ours will be a two player keeper league and not a "dynasty".

Add another vote for snake. ;-D

The only drafts that I'm in that aren't snake drafts are dynasty league rookie drafts. ;-D
