Very deep mixed league 6x6 (OPS and Holds) roto keeper, 14 owners x 40 man rosters = 560 players drafted. Keep 8, but you give up the draft pick in the round where the keeper was selected last year, minus 3. So if Freeman was taken in the 8th round last year, you'd need to give up a 5th round pick to keep him this year. There is high value on young players previously taken in a late round, as you give up very little to keep them, and you can hold them many years. In the Freeman example, you could keep him this year in the 5th round, and perhaps next year in the 2nd, but after that he gets thrown back into the pool.
These are the 9 guys I like, with the round I'd need to give up to keep them. Since I can only keep 8, who would you toss back or try to trade?
