How many keepers is standard for Keeper League?

Postby davus » Mon Feb 24, 2003 12:09 pm

I run a keeper league that is 8x8 rotiserrie. We keep 2 players each year.

What is the standard for a keeper league? We lost 4 managers this year and I'm thinking that if someone gets a crappy team and there are any more keepers allowed than 2 it will cause people to feel like they are screwed for years.

Then again, I'm seeing some of you guys are in keeper leagues where you get to keep like 10 guys 8-o .

What is normal for a keeper league?...this is the first one I've been in and I just picked the number 2 out of thin air.

my roto has 6 too....id say maybe 4-7 is about right depending on the size of the league, but 2 is not enough, you must raise that number at least to 4 or so. just my opinion.

Hmm, I'll suggest to the other guys this year that we may want to increase keepers...of course we'll have to decide pre-draft.

Thanks guys.

When we had them we went 1 in year 1, 3 in year 2, 5 in year 3, then thru them all back to satrt the 4th year. We've gone completely away from keepers now.
