Dynasty/Keeper League "Reset"

Postby roninmedia » Thu Oct 12, 2006 6:37 pm

We all know these long term leagues vary in their rules, whether through the format, scoring within the respective format, number of keepers.

In the fantasy football leagues I played, the keepers were usually 3 years in duration, while dynasty leagues were typically 5-7 years or sometimes longer. At the end of this time period, you couldn't keep a player for the entire time period or we had a full reset where we redrafted everyone.

I know baseball is more of a long term culture, I mean with the minor leagues and prospects and waiting for them to develop. In football, players make it or break within the first few seasons.

How do you feel about a full "reset" where everyone goes back into the pool and it acts as a redraft league for that season? Or do you like when the league is continous with no resets?

By definition, if you do not keep some players and redraft everyone, it is no longer a keeper league. So if you do that, you are basically dissolving the keeper league and reforming a new one.

Nothing wrong with that if that is what you want to do. But the very essense of sending everyone back to the free agent pool for a redraft basically terminates the keeper league. Typically I like to at least retain some players year to year. You usually have to adjust the keeper count down to try to rebalance the league at some point. I prefer going that route.

Personally, my preference would never be to do a reset. It's going to be necessary at some point though, if the league gets to be non-competetive. In order to keep owners, it's a very real possibility that a reset might be required.

This really just goes to the point of getting a really good ownership group though, and less to the "rules" of a keeper league.

If you're gonna do that, just drop 1 round per year off of when you originally drafted the player until it drops to 0. Then, you can't keep that player. No reason to reset a keeper league to me.

That's my favourite way of running a keeper league. Though i prefer it when you count down to one, and can only keep one guy at first round value. That way would seem to indicate you could never keep a first round pick.
