Anyone know of any respectable (free) keeper rankings?

Postby dannahann » Tue Jun 16, 2009 3:24 pm

My league rules make it difficult to retain top keepers if you finish at or near the top. The rules are great for stimulating frequent trades of top level studs but I am trying to get a jump on 2010 before our winter trading starts in earnest. Are there any current keeper rankings out there? Would it be a good idea to create consensus keeper ranking within the Cafe, like we do prior to drafting. Maybe 3 versions; pre draft, 8 weeks in, and 16 weeks in?

Keeper league rules are too variable to create a ranking system that would apply to the majority of those who play in them. How many players are kept? How many minor league spots are there, if any? Is there a limit to number of years you can keep a player? Those factors weigh more prominently than the usual variation between redraft leagues, so it's much more complicated than doing a redraft ranking.

This is the best source that I've seen: 2009 Keeper League Rankings. Looks like they're in the process of updating their OF and pitcher rankings though so you'll have to wait on that.

You will probably be waiting a long, long time. The last updates on the pages are all from March April. Looks to me like the rankings are not being updated
