Some questions that kind of bug me: Reaching for keepers is okay, but how far is too far? How do you approach players who provide steady production but aren’t keeper material? Do you move them in your rankings at all? How do you adjust for positional scarcity? For instance I know I’m not keeping any SP but others will. Does this mean the remaining SP will be even more valuable, ie should I reach for them earlier then I normally would?
Or is it a better idea to not change anything and let value picks will fall through the cracks because everyone else is worrying about positioanl scarcity/keepers/etc ?
I'm confused... you call this redraft, but you are describing a keeper format (redraft means no keepers). Do you mean to say that this is your first time doing a keeper league and you are trying to adjust your rankings accordingly? I generally will not put too much weight into the keepers, preferring to play to win now - but you are right that values will present themselves because other people will reach for keepers. Also, it is tough to answer without knowing your keeper format - some leagues allow many keepers to be kept indefinitely, some use contracts, some you get penalized with draft picks to keep players, etc.
