      just moved up max moves to 80 for the year...

      max per week is 4. not sure you'll need to be making 4 moves per week though. but who knows.
      20 weeks per regular season.

      20*4 is 80....

      so make sure you save some moves for the playoffs..

      With a larger group and deeper rosters...think we'll stand pat with no trades like the last two years?

      drops & adds did well for people in past season.

      Forgetting to adjust my lineups for two weeks killed me last year...couldnt make up the ground.

      Sorry for missing the draft fellas. A lot of personal **** kept me off offline last night. My team actually looks pretty good. A few guys with big upside. Thanks for doing this again!

      This is our third year and it's been really fun. Having this forum to connect all of us helps a lot. I would not be opposed to a keeper's league.

      Basically a league where you keep a number (determined by league) of players from year to year


      better explained by about.com

      A keeper league is sort of a combination between a standard draft league and a dynasty league. Each preseason, most of the players are drafted, however, owners are allowed to keep a predetermined number of players on their roster from the year before. Most league rules allow only a handful of players to be retained by each team from year to year.

      i'm in the 2nd year of a 4yr keeper league that has 16 teams...

      our rules...

      year 1 is a random draft, similar to what we had tuesday.
      year 2, we get to keep 1 player from our final year 1 roster.
      year 3, we'll be able to keep 2 players from the 2nd year final roster.
      year 4, we get to keep 3 players from our 3rd year final roster
      .
      so our draft for year 2 is this sunday. my keeper from year 1 is knuckle pushups.
      each teams first pick will most likely be their 2nd keeper.
      so, there is a bit of strategy involved. for example, someone might take anthony davis very early. and have the option to have him as a keeper for years 3 and 4.

      its fun. its sorta like building your own franchise.

      Is draft order random or dictated by standings?

      in years 2-4, the draft order is like this.

      picks 1 through 8 is whoever finished 9th through 16th.

      I'm all for a keeper league... my other basketball league finally went to keeper format this year and it's way better. Plus it's the same guys doing this in here every year anyhow.

      I like that drafting format...though what's preventing someone flailing at the bottom from tanking the season and dropping everyone worth anything on their roster? I guess that's fine since you're banking on getting a higher pick in year 2, which combined with a keeper, gives you a better shot in year 2?

      I like the idea of keeper - now we know for next season

      the top 8 teams make the playoffs in that league. 100 units per team. so there is a nice payout.

      the teams that dont make the playoffs, still continue to play to finish 9th, which is technically the battle for 1st pick the following year, helps avoid tanking.

      Just bumping the thread, so I have it on my posts.

      Harden looks like he is going to have better numbers now that he is a starter.

      right now we have same day adds...

      i think i can set it up so adds are effective the next day.

      let me know what the league votes....

      currently, you can add a player the same day as long as the player you drop hasnt played yet.

      but if the player has played, you can't drop him til the next day.


      if we do adds effective the next day, you'd have to add a player the night before to get him in your lineup the following day.

      hope you guys follow, let me know what ya'll think is best.

      another type of league that might peak everyones interest next year is an auction league...

      everyone is given a budget, and you have to bid on players for your team.

      i've never been in one, but am curious.

      no draft order. you bid using your budget and build your team that way.

      I hope Hawes stays healthy. W Chandler is a bust not playing back to back games the first 2 months.

      Quick question... In another league I'm in my team was auto drafted due to the hurricane knocking out power. I ended up with...

      Eric Gordon
      Andrew Bynum
      Derrick Rose
      Ricky Rubio

      All of those guys are injured. Who should I hang on to? My current line up is...

      E'Twaun Moore (Jameer is injured also so I dropped for E'Twaun)
      Arron Afflalo
      Jarret Jack
      Tyreke Evans
      Glen Davis
      Wesley Matthews
      Dwight Howard
      Drew Gooden (DNP's last two games, may drop for Seraphin)
      Danny Green
      Kirk Hinrich
      Kris Humphries

      As you can see I have a decent set of bigs but when Bynum comes back I may have the best bigs in the league. My issue is I'm thin at PG I feel. But do I drop Rose and Rubio? Or hold out till December and see how Rubio is. Gordon is slated for December also so I may stash him too.

      What would you guys do?

      I'd be in for a keeper league as well.

      I forgot that we don't have any IR spots on the roster.
