Update 7/26/2010: Keeper league

So how are we doing the Keeper Players?


Wow how did i forget about this? I'm really sorry, i meant to do this way earlier. Probably because my team sucked so bad. Wink

I'm stealing this from another website and modifying the rules slightly:

Quote:
1. Each team can keep from 0-3 players from their previous end-of-season roster – Depending on what players are left on your team at the end of the previous season, you may wish to “keep” none of your players.

2. Players drafted in the first 2 rounds of a draft can not be kept in the following season – This prevents the top tier of players from being kept and creating massively unfair teams. Due to rule 4 below, the first 2 rounds technically couldn’t be kept anyways.

3. A Player can only be kept a maximum of 3 consecutive times – This rule is there just to keep things interesting. If you want the same player(s) on the same team year after year, maybe you should start a Dynasty league instead.

4. For each player that is kept (and was originally drafted by a team), that manager must give up a draft pick 2 picks higher than where the player was initially drafted the year before – This ensures that players that improve in talent each season are accounted for. If Frank Gore was drafted in the 13th round last year, you probably don’t want him counting for a teams 13th pick for the next 3 years.

Example: Wide receiver Brandon Marshall was drafted in the 11th round last year. If kept, this year he would account for the teams 9th round pick. If kept again, the following year he would be considered the 7th round pick.

5. Any player that went undrafted the previous year, but is being kept, will count as a team’s 3rd to last draft pick – This rule is there to slightly reward good drafting, as keeping free agent pickups are a little pricier than last round draft picks.

Example: Marques Colston was picked up off free agency last season by a team. If the league has 15 rounds in its draft, and the manager wishes to keep Colston, he must give up his 12th round pick the following season (as opposed to a player drafted in the 15th round, who would only count for the 13th pick).

6. If you do not have a draft pick for a round to give up to keep a player, you must give up the next higher pick – This will only happen if you keep your second to last rounder and a free agent pickup (or multiple free agent pickups). In this case, you will lose your 12th and 13th rounder (assuming a 15 round draft).

Example: You wish to keep two free agents that you picked up during last season. Because both of them would qualify for your 12th pick (in a 15 round draft), one must count as the 12th pick, but the other will have to be your 11th pick.

7. No trading of picks or players (players can still be traded during the season before the trade deadline - This is to keep teams from trading a player that wasn't going to be kept in order to get an extra draft pick. In a way, this rewards the team extra for good drafting, but also gives an unfair advantage for the following season.

To clarify:

-For all trades, you will give up the draft pick that he was chosen at. So if i drafted Cedric Benson in the 7th and traded him, he's still worth the 7th rounder and the team who chooses to keep him will give up a 5th.

-However, if you drafted say, Jamal Charles in the 13th, and dropped him, his round value is void. So the team that picks him up in FA will give up a 12th, not an 11th.

I will investigate all keepers for how they were acquired, so you don't have to worry about it. I'll end up posting here what you'll be giving up. Feel free to give me this info if you'd like, it will make the investigation easier.

Addendum: I want to head this off before it occurs:

In order to keep a player, he has to actually play a game with your fantasy team. Meaning, you can't pick up Dez Bryant, then use your 12th rounder to keep him (he's on IR). The same goes for any player on IR.

This is meant to discourage owners from picking up guys on IR with the intent of using them as keeper players the following years.


So that makes the un-keepable players the following:

Round 1
1. Adrian Peterson - dominators
2. Michael Turner - BuckeyeBengal77
3. Maurice Jones-Drew - Maximus
4. Matt Forte - The ohiostat...
5. Steve Slaton - Delbert's Team
6. DeAngelo Williams - Oscar De La ...
7. Brian Westbrook - George Feeny...
8. LaDainian Tomlinson - Team J
9. Larry Fitzgerald - cc9
10. Steven Jackson - Carson4MVP
Round 2
1. Frank Gore - Carson4MVP
2. Chris Johnson - cc9
3. Randy Moss - Team J
4. Brandon Jacobs - George Feeny...
5. Drew Brees - Oscar De La ...
6. Kurt Warner - Delbert's Team
7. Clinton Portis - The ohiostat...
8. Andre Johnson - Maximus
9. Steve Smith - BuckeyeBengal77
10. Peyton Manning - dominators

Keepers must be in one week prior to the draft. If they aren't entered, it will be assumed your team is keeping no one. If you haven't checked in at all 3 days prior to the draft, your team will be forfeited to another lucky bengals fan in this forum. At this time, the new guy can elect keep players, but must enter the keepers immediately upon claiming the team.

If anyone has a problem with these rules, or discovers a loophole or something, let me know. If you don't want to play next season, let me know ASAP.

I could care less about fantasy football, so I'm in. I won't be there for the draft though, so we need to use a site that allows auto draft.

I'm in, ESPN/NFL.com does live scoring I believe, which would be an added bonus to using one of their sites over Yahoo.

Haha, nice.

Most sites allow you to prerank players that it chooses from. If you don't show up, it'll just pick for you. I'll mark you down.

Ok, i'll start a list of possible sites and we'll see if anyone has any strong convictions.

In. Late August sounds good as well. I think NFL.com is fine, ESPN probably more convenient as I visit there more often.

Got you.

I looked over a few sites for fantasy football. NFL.com and CBSsportsline.com are the same pretty much. I like ESPN more than those two sites because it gives more customization over roster positions and scoring.

So if no one has any strong objections, i'd like to go with ESPN.
