    keeper league question?

    We have used keeper the last two seasons and have seen the same thing happen. this year we are going to use this system that I saw online.
    Each team can keep up to 5 players (if that's the number you decide on) but is allotted 10 keeper points. For every year that you have kept a player in the draft (you can check draft results in Yahoo) you accrue 1 point. So if you kept a player in two consecutive drafts he uses 2 of your 10 points. If you keep him again, next year he uses 3 points. It's kind of like a free agent system. Sure you can keep a Pujols for 5 years, but at the cost of not being able to keep other players.
    We are going to build up the points retroactively back to 2009. In this way it will not directly affect any team this year, but it may indirectly affect who they want to 'keep' this year. If they allow the player to go into the draft and pick him up, his number resets to zero. The same action occurs if he is traded. This should also boost the number of trades in the league.

    • as an example...I have kept Longoria, Kemp , and Braun the last two drafts. That is 6 points. Kept Ryan Howard last season that makes 7 points. I can keep three more players this year (we use 6 keepers).
      If I keep those 4 guys this year Longoria, Kemp & Braun would use up 9 points. Howard would use 2 points. That's already 11 points, 1 over the limit. No room for those 4, so at least one of them would have to be left open.
      By incorporating the system this year, in which no one loses anybody, it will give every manager a 'heads up' going into next year.
      It's a simpler, less complicated one than some of the others I have seen. Plus it gives managers the leeway to keep who they want, albeit at the cost of possibly limiting their number of keepers.
