Looking to get 11 other fantasy baseball enthusiasts together to start a live auction keeper in the Albany area (or syracuse/utica/wherever us easiest to meet up). Would like to have med/deep rosters. Possibly minor league system (popular vote, I have interest but haven't done it). And a fairly simple $ increase in player values each year.
I wish I could give credit to the league I saw doing it. But I like an increase of $3, 3, 3, 4, 5, 6, 6, 6, 6, 6, .... for each keeper you keep starting with the highest paid keeper, and a minimum of 6 keepers. Simple to use and forces deeply discounted players values to move up.
I would like it to be a mixed 5x5 league but open to choices. I do like the scoring option on onroto to have each week be scored individually with roto scoring. So top roto scoring team in a given week gets 12 points towards final total, last place gets 1. Gives the league a feel of a 12 team H2H scoring each week. (no more luck of the draw).
To keep teams interested I would like to steal another idea, give payouts to all teams based on final standings. Could increase buy-in (negotiable but I would like it to be in the 100-200 range) to still make it worth playing in even if 11 owners are getting something back. But it should keep interest all year.
Send me a message and lets see if there is enough interest in the area.
