Looking for an active and competitive keeper league to participate in? Well, one of our members has some family issues that have come up, and he is no longer able to be active our Yahoo! keeper league. So we're looking for a co-manager to help him rebuild this season, and take over the team for next season. Here are the basics of the league rules:
-14 team roto keeper league, standard 5x5 scoring.
-Each team keeps 5 players based on the round they were drafted in the previous year.
-After a player is kept one season, their round value increases for each subsequent year they are kept (+1 increase for 2-10th rounders, +2 rounds for 11th-19th rounders, and +3 for 20+ rounders).
-In cases of round value ties, the second player takes the next available draft slot (ie. if I want to keep two 9th rounders, one slides into the 10th slot with no penalty)
-It's a dynasty-lite format, meaning players can be kept indefinitely if so desired by their owner.
-The league has a $25 buy in with full payout to the top 3 ($225 for first, $100 for second, $25 for third place).
The team is in need of a serious rebuild - he has some good players like Johan Santana, Manny, and Papelbon, but they don't have great keeper value given that they were drafted pretty early. He has some nice bargain keepers though, like Josh Johnson (10th round keeper value) Joba Chamberlain, and Jason Bartlett (23rd round value). Also, this team will receive at least a top-3 pick in next year's draft.
This is by far the most active, competitive, and interesting league I've ever been a part of, and we have 13 other dedicated managers who love to trade. There is also a ton of messageboard activity and baseball talk. If you're interested, PM me! I'll also need the email address you use for yahoo. I'll post the roster below.
