Submitting keepers

Postby captoats85 » Tue Feb 13, 2007 10:37 pm

When you submit keepers in your league, do you do so publically or do you e-mail them to your commish? In my league people e-mail them the commish, but I don't like the secrecy and it prevents others from making the best choices they can.

I think secrets the best way. In my opinion its not fair to be able to change who you are keeping because someone else submitted their keepers first and you can see who they kept.

I agree. To get around the Commish doing anything suspect in our league, we had another player exchange lists with him prior to the rest of the league submitting it. That way you can be sure that nobody is changing their lists after seeing everyone elses.

In my league, we all submit our keepers (5 max) in secret by a deadline. After that, the commish sends the list of keepers to everybody. Then we have a week to change at most 2 keepers from our original submission.

I like this method because it involves both initial secrecy and an opportunity for a little bit of strategy given everyone else's keepers.

I mean, it depends how competitive everyone is. In The Funky 14 (a cafe keeper league), we've just been posting them when we felt like it with a deadline after which everything was final (and before which you could change stuff around as much as you wanted to). Seems like a fine system to me.

We keep 6 but everyone has to submit a preliminary list of 10. Then we'll trim down to 6 by the time we draft.

People have been emailing me and I put it in Excel. Once I have everyone's I just email it. Not a big deal IMO as very few people have multiple options especially if you keep a lot of players.

We keep 4 in my league. The commishioner takes some time to select his keepers, then tell us he's ready for ours. We send our keepers in, and he gives us his. It's secret until draft start, as it should be, and only when the draft starts do we know anyone else's keepers. Secret is the best way to do it, as it becomes a more strategic choice. Especially if you insert a supplemental draft, the strategy aspect increases.

we keep 6, but we submit an initial list of 8, then trim it down the week before the draft. I think it works well. You can adjust a little bit based upon what other people do, but you are still locked in a bit too. it also lets people dump a guy who ends up injured in spring training or something. But we do have an initial deadline that is secret, unless said person doesn't care and posts their keepers early.

What is this secret stuff? I would think that most people would rather know in advance who is available to pick than be completely blindsided at the draft?
