Keeper Format

Postby Yoda » Mon Feb 14, 2005 7:38 pm

I'm trying to improve the keeper format in our league. What type of system do people use and reason why you think it is good or bad?

Mine currently is: keep any 5 plus 1 rookie or late pick (20th round and on). Keep total of 6.

Thanks. ;-D

Our current method is to keep 3 total out of 24 or 25 in a 12 team H2H. We don't think it's a great number. One of our guys is clamoring to keep 8. The Commish and I have discussed a new strategy that I believe he's going to enact this year. I must say I got the idea off the message boards here.

Managers will be able to keep up to X players, where I think we'll set X at 8.

A pre-draft will occur for all managers that do not keep up the the maximum kept for a season (if that makes any sense).

For Example: In a three team league: If Team A keeps 7, Team B keeps 5, and Team C keeps 6, Team B would get the first pick, then Team C and B would get picks 2 and 3 (depending on their ranking from the previous season), and then Team A would be thrown into the mix and the draft would carry out as normal.

This gives team that don't have a bunch of stars to basically rebuild every year and those that are set with a solid core, can keep their team together. It also adds strategy in the offseason when trying to pick how many you want to keep.
