12 team Salary Based Keeper League 1 pt/5 rush yds, 1 pt/10 rec yds, 1 pt/50 pass yds, 6 pts/all tds, .5ppr
I am currently keeping Drew Brees, LaDanian Tomlinson, Roddy White, and Reggie Wayne. All unkept players go into an auction and rookies are drafted in a snake order rookie-only draft. I have the #3 pick in the rookie-only draft.
I can also keep Joseph Addai or Reggie Bush, but not both because of salaries.
Another team is very short at RB, with only Marshawn Lynch being a legit option (his others are Bradshaw, Sproles, and Edge). He has offered me Braylon Edwards for Bush, straight-up. Do I do that or do I offer Addai instead?
In case you were wondering with the #3 rookie pick, I'm looking at Moreno, Wells, Crabtree in that order and I do want to make a strong run at Jonathan Stewart in the auction (I would be set at QB and WR already).
I'm a little unclear on the draft. Are the rookies and fa's that are available all assigned a dollar amount and then you just draft your team? Or is it a true auction draft where you can pick, for example Crabtree with your #3 pick and everyone can place a bid on him?? Overall I think that Edwards will have a rebound year and have a decent season, not as good as his 07' season, but a good year. I would also offer Addai for him, and maybe throw in a late round draft pick and go from there. Bush is much more valuable in a ppr league. good luck.
Players who played last year start with a salary based on points scored a game (example: 2.0 means 20 ppg).
We have 6.0 to keep players or 6.0 and a 4.0 tag used on any player, meaning 10 total. Total salary during the season can not be over 22.5.
I am tagging Tomlinson at 4, and keeping Brees at 1.5, White at 1.3, and Wayne at 1.1.
That leaves 2.1 remaining. Addai's salary is 1.0 and Bush's salary is 1.3, so I can't keep both. Edwards is .8. So I can either add Addai/Edwards or Bush/Edwards to my previous players being kept after a trade.
All unkept players go into an auction with their price starting at these prices. For example some unkept players like Jonathan Stewart (1.3), Thomas Jones (2.3), and Ben Roethlisberger (0.9) will start at those prices. So a player like Jonathan Stewart can be won be a team at a salary of 5.6, if auctioned that high.
After the auction we start a normal snake-order draft, using rookies and un-auctioned players (usually a lot of kickers, defenses, and tight ends and maybe some backup skill players at the level of guys like Leon Washington or Mark Clayton. All players picked during this draft are automatically 0.2 and go right to the time that pick them. So if I pick Crabtree #3, his salary will be 0.2 and be on my team.
Hope this clears things up more.
I think I'm leaning towards the Addai for Edwards trade, I think he's likely to accept it. Our league is pretty RB heavy, there won't be many great Rbs in the auction and he has the #7 pick in the snake draft.

You are obviously a little short at RB with only an aging LT. Bush is valuable because of the .5 PPR.
I would try and trade Addai first, but I think Addai for Edwards straight up may not happen.
For the 1.3 pick, if both Moreno and Wells are gone, I would look at Brown over Crabtree as you could really use the help at RB.
+1 on all the above.
Also, with 1 point per 5 yards rushing, but 1 point 10 yard receiving, and only 1 point per 50 yard passing, this gives RB even more of a boost. Generally its 10/10/25. Thats a huge difference maker in QB related value.
Kudos to the uberdesigner 'soty' for the sig!

I would do Addai or Bush for Edwards, looking at your league's scoring at 1 point every 5 yds rushing, the rushing yds are twice as valuable. Bush at best looks like he's good for 800 rushing yds in 2009 and that's if he doesn't get injured again.
I would definately offer Addai for Edwards first and see if he bites (I wouldn't take that if I were him) and counter with Bush if he turns it down...
I like Edwards to bounce back next year, with his eye on being an RFA in 2010 and the chance to jump ship to a better team. With this being a keeper league I think that enhances Edwards' value looking forward. Edwards is the classic buy-low candidate this year imo...
With White, Wayne and Edwards as your starting WR trio, you'll really be set.
I realize you didn't ask for advice on your draft, but I have a few thoughts;
I think you should be pretty happy if you get Wells or Moreno at #3 in the rookie draft, you'll have to hope someone picking at #1 or #2 really needs a WR and snaps up Crabtree. Keep an eye on Shonn Green in the Jets' camp, he might move up the draft boards and be worth that #3 pick, as could Donald Brown for Indy should you elect to keep Addai around.
I like Crabtree, but I'm not that high on the 49ers passing game. I'm not convinced he'll produce right away -- I've taken a few fliers on guys like Josh Morgan and Arnaz Battle recently and been burned by the Niners, so I'm a little gun-shy on their wideouts. I'm not sure I'd use such a high pick on a WR in a league that values rushing yards so highly.
