A few examples would be great of some of your keeper leagues. Or if you can direct me in the right direction. Thanks
Welcome to the Cafe! This place has a lot of great info, so hopefully you'll stick around.
There are so many different types of keeper leagues and keeper rules. I'm not sure if there are any "standard settings" on how long you can keep players, but I think that the most basic keeper leagues allow you to keep players with no draft pick penalty and for as long as you want. That's how it works in my only keeper league.
But some keeper leagues don't allow anyone to keep players from the top few rounds. In some keeper leagues you lose the draft pick from the round the player was drafted in. In some keeper leagues you lose the draft pick from the round the player was drafted in and then that penalty increases in future years (lose 7th rounder, then 5th rounder, then 3rd rounder, etc.). Some keeper leagues only allow owners to keep players for a certain number of years. The possibilities are endless. Hope that helps a little and good luck!
