my first time in a keeper league

Postby Randaman » Sat Sep 04, 2004 4:26 pm

Can someone give me some strategy goin into the draft wednesday, i have done normal fantasy football for 3 yrs but this is my first time doing a keeper league and im trying to go into it with a plan, do i change anythign from my normal strategy?

obviously draft younger players who could do good next season but just is there anythign that stands out in ur mind thats a total difference from a normal league to a keeper league?

thanks

Some younger players become a bit more valuable. Other then that not much changes.

Don't completely overvalue younger players, I've seen this happen alot and as long as it's not a dynasty the age factor plays a small part in my keeper rankings.

bump the younger stars up slightly...fopr instance Priest shouldnt go in the top 5 IMO in a keeper..also use late round picks on potential more than a normal draft...thats about it though

Priest is top 3 at worst, depends if you want to take Ahman over him. LT is the lock for #1.

It depends on how deep the league. The first five rounds won't change much regardless except for a player like M. Faulk who might drop quite a bit. So if it's a shallow keeper your draft strategy won't be much different than a redraft. In a deep league like a dynasty the middle rounds change quite a bit.

In the mock draft forum there was a dynasty mock done earlier this year. Also, check the league listings in the forum list for dynasties and keepers that did there inaugral draft in the forums. May help you to look at those.

Check out the First and Short Keeper League forum. 12 teams, 5 keepers. We had our inagural draft the past 3 weeks.

Under NO circumstances should Priest fall out of the top 3 - keeper league or not.

Priest Holmes estimates he's playing at "80%" because of his chronic hip problem.
Even more worrisome is Holmes' admission in recent days that he thought about retirement this offseason. At 31, Kansas City may try to lessen Holmes' burden by playing Larry Johnson more this season.

Reports like that made me slide him down a bit in my draft..not to mention the hip problem....
