I am a believe that even in a keeper league you get the best players you can regardless of age and try to win this year. You can worry about next year when it comes. One of the biggest mistakes I see when I look at keeper drafts are people who try to draft young players and are always trying to build for next year.
Oh I so agree ..
worry about your keepers once the season is over, not before it begins.
This is the single biggest mistake people make in a keeper league

In our original draft I was able to snag A-Rod, Beltran and Prior and made a trade for Soriano later in the year. Those 4, along with Schilling, comprised the 5 I was able to keep.
For last year's draft the keepers was reduced to 3, so I just wittled off Prior and Schilling.
The point is, for me anyway, I've been fortunate in that I've had the foundation of young studs that it allows me to take a chance on older players that might slip, because while other owners are trying to grab up the young keepers, I can look at the older solid vets who will help complement my already golden young guys.
So depending on how many players you keep, make sure you get a core foundation of guys you can count on for years to come and then you'll be able to complement them with nice veteran picks.
