As far as doing one or the other in regards to an auction draft or a keeper league, everyone has stated that they want to do a keeper league....so its more likely that we will go that route. The issue stems from 2-3 babies who think that doing an auction draft is the end of the world. I have been trying to make everyone understand what the impact is from doing a regular snake draft on a keeper league, and then what the differences are when you do an auction league. '
While trying to explain things in the most simple manner, I basically just said that if we do a snake draft, things will be fine through years 1 and 2 because if you keep a player, you simply lose the draft pick in the round that the player was selected in the year prior. Ok fine....but what happens in years 3, 4 and 5? If you want to keep that same player, you basically just continue to forfeit that same rounds draft pick, etc. So every year you can keep the same player, for the same relative cost......as opposed to an increasing cost or tax. I fear that this will lead to teams keeping players for too long and will dilute the draft pool, etc.
Also, correct me if I am wrong, but if you do a keeper league with a snake draft, doesn't the #1 pick then become exponentially more valuable?
