Tough question: How to do expansion?

Postby chaindog35 » Wed Dec 03, 2003 1:49 pm

The HOF dynasty league is expanding from 10 members to 12 members. I am looking for suggestions about how to do a fantasy expansion draft from and original 10 teams to the new 12 teams to make it fair for all teams involved.

Make every team give up a player that is ranked in the top 20 in that position. Then let him take the rest of his team off free agents and get draft picks

If it is a keeper league, let the 10 players choose a keeper from their own teams, then let the other two new teams choose a keeper from any team. Then let the original 10 choose again, from any team this time, in reverse order of their rankings at the end of the season, then the new guys again. Keep doing that until the keeper requirements have been fulfilled.

This may not be much help but the only possible way i see it being fair to all owners is a redraft. I dont see any way possible to expand a dynasty league fairly

I like 49er Forevers idea but think that each team should be allowed to save two before losing one. There has to be some growing pains for the new teams.

Here are the rules in my keeper league. We are expanding from 8 to 10 teams:
1- Each existing team can protect 3+1 from it's roster... these are untouchable.
2- The expansion teams will randomly draw numbers for the order of their selection in the expansion draft.
3- The expansion will snake in it's sequence (1-2, 2-1, 1-2, 2-1).
4- No existing team shall lose more than one player from the non-protected players in the expansion draft. I.E. once a player is selected from team A, then no more players can be selected from team A. The reaon being is that I want to keep the draft pool high for the teams that finished poorly in the league.
5- The expansion teams can not draft a Defense
6- The expansion teams must fufill the rookie requirement keeper rule.
7- FA players are available to be drafted.
8- The expansion teams will select 9th and 10th in the overall draft.

That is how we are doing it.

Expansion teams should get picks 1 and 2 in the overall draft, like in the NFL.

Ouch, Zimm, that is incredibly harsh. The way I see it, make it hard on the expansion team, but not impossible for like, four years to come. If they were stuck with those rules their top player would be David Boston (if they're lucky). Yikes. Do it like the NFL does.
