let the games begin!!
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!

"I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve"
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.
Let's Go Jets/Mets/Nets
i'm in the 2nd year of a 4yr keeper league that has 16 teams...
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.
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.
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.
Quick question... In another league I'm in my team was auto drafted due to the hurricane knocking out power. I ended up with...
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)
Drew Gooden (DNP's last two games, may drop for Seraphin)
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?
