It appears I haven't thought much into this whole KEEPER league thing. lol.

If someone wants to keep Aaron Rodgers for 10 years, I'm cool with that. It means the site is still alive. :)

I checked FleaFlicker and I don't see where we could set an expriation of any kind. So I think we'll just roll with keep'em as long as you choose to.


Users can go in and set there keepers.. then all you have to do is clear rosters and the keepers will stay. Set a date for the keepers to be set.. then the draft to fill in the rosters.

Another aspect to consider.. can users trade players prior to the keeper date.. example.. if you have 4 players that are worthy of keeping and another player has only two.. can they trade picks to obtain the overflow? Can you sign a free agent to the keeper list?

Holy crap this Keeper league thing has too many variables.

Shawn, do you want to lay out the rules for this keeper league? Or should we just scrap keep and go back to pure draft? The latter might actually be better since we'll probably have 2-4 new entrants each season.


I just don't have the time (or intelligence) to divulge into all the variables for this keeper stuff.

I think a fresh season each year is the best bet, for many reasons. It's just more simple, especially given the turnover that will occur.

A problem with a keeper league.

Let's say someone decides they want to keep little Manning. The pool of available players is set and draft day approaches but the day before the draft Eli busts his knee and will be out for the season. If the league is run properly the team owner is screwed. He should have to keep Eli on his team and wait until everyone else fills their rosters before he is allowed to replace him.

It is no big deal if everyone knows and understands this beforehand. I guarantee you someone at some point will try to drop their injured player and go into the draft with an empty slot.

I apologize for the confusion, but due to my ignorance and lack of KEEPER league experience, this league is going to be a full re-draft league instead. Sorry. Too many variables to hash out and just don't have the time.

Didn't mean to drive you crazy Kevin. All the issues are doable. Just need to have everyone on the same page on draft day.

There are probably prepackaged league rules that can be used. I am not sure which ones you would want to use.

I think with the high chances of turnover, might as well just have a redraft every year.

Less maintenance. :)

Good. I didn't really want to be in a league where I didn't have a slight chance of somehow getting Rodgers in the draft. Hmmm, sweet sweet Rodgers.

beast (29-Sep) : since slot WRs might be the Packers strength depth/talent wise
beast (29-Sep) : With AR's passing % down field so low, I've been saying they should go with short passes like the Pats used to do, especially since slot WRs
beast (29-Sep) : What's going to be needed against the Giants is OL and DBs (IMO)
Smokey (28-Sep) : Cook(TE) has time to heal, but may not be needed against NYG on Oct 9th .
