Hey guys, starting a keeper league up this year with my buddies but don't know where to start. Could anyone offer the rules that they play by? Post them here in the form of a link or reply, or PM me if you don't want them public? It would be greatly appreciated!
I'd like to get as many as possible, that way I could take elements from each. Are there any online resources that provide this sort of stuff?
10-team, H2H, 27-man rosters, standard 5x5
Start C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OFx4, Util.x2, MI, CI
SPx5, RPx2, Px3
Keep 7 - 13 players (players may be kept indefinitely)
Keeper designations are due February 13, by 11:59 PM
The way it works:
The first 13 Rounds of the draft are run standard non-snake style, with the worst team from the previous season picking first each round. In these rounds, teams select their keeper players until they are exhausted. Once a player has burned their first X Draft Picks on their X keepers, they may pick from the player pool. Trading of picks is allowed but ONLY ones occuring in Rounds 14 and beyond. Starting in Round 14, the draft switches to normal snake-style, with the 1st place team from the previous season getting the 1st selection (Pick 14.1) until it's over. Trading may occur during the draft at any time, including players already selected as well as current and upcoming draft picks.
$50/team x 10 teams = $500 pot
Regular Season: The 1st place team at the end of the fantasy regular season will be awarded $100. 2nd place will receive $50.
Post Season: The team that finishes in 1st place after the playoffs are all said and done will get $200. 2nd place will receive $50.
Every 4 weeks, one of the 10 categories will be selected at random, and be up for a cash prize. For example, if Homeruns is selected for Weeks 1-4, whichever team amasses the most total HRs in the combined 4 weeks will receive $20. This will go on for 20 weeks, or 5 4-week periods. wrveres was the one who supplied this idea, pegging it the DASH 4 CASH.
That's the basic idea, off the top of my head, without looking at our documentation. if you have any other questions, just ask.

it was a
viable reason to make the trade. (non-viable reasons include, hes my favorite
player, I like
his team, he wears my favorite number, etc.)
