One, most keeper leagues have widely differing rules (salaries, etc.) that enormously influence value.
Two, at this point of the year, every team has a shot at first place and thus, in a bubble, keeper rankings should be fairly similar to non-keeper rankings. I've always found the fantasy team that wishes to sacrifice an entire year for the sake of keeping a player with better long-term value than short- to be somewhat foolish. Only in extremely deep dynasty leagues does that strategy pay dividend.
Agreed. I pretty much just use my redraft rankings...of course I'll default to the younger guys in more cases than I would in a redraft but I wouldn't draft thinking about 3-4+ years down the road. I'm thinking about this year and next...thats about it.
