How difficult is it to set up & maintain a keeper league?
I agree, the smaller the number of keepers the easier it is to keep managers in the league and new blood coming in and inheriting a team that they can still have a good draft a make a competitor. i run a league where we keep 4 guys with no limit to years kept or draft position. If i have 2 or more managers bail on me during the off season i conduct a draft with the new managers using the two vacant teams players in a snake draft. it actually has worked fairly well. IMO
