I like the "keeper points" a little. i guess you could just reset every few years. I dont like limiting owners to keeping "players they drafted" who cares right? If they were on the roster the previous season, that should be enough. All the rest is unneccesary. You'd be setting your league up for a lot of headaches and whining.
Im really a fan of 2-4 keepers max, its all about the draft folks! Dynasty leagues are for the birds.
One franchise keeper spot year to year would probably accomplish what youre trying for with a lot less confusion. You can let owners select an additional rookie keeper from their roster, and keep that player forever, but they can opt to select a new rookie to replace, any year, if they want. In a league Im in, franchise players will be ineligable for that tag once dropped from a roster.
Thanks Goat, everyone will still be able to keep anyone who is on their final roster, regardless of whether they drafted them or not for all options.
Depending on which option we go with will decide which round they get to keep the player in. So with the first option, regardless of where you drafted a player, picked the player as a free agent, or traded for the player, they would represent one of your first five picks.
For the other options, free agents would be used as the round 10 pick (or should this be later), and traded players would use the original draft round (if the player was drafted by a team).
I'm still trying to figure out what the best max players kept should be, I want the draft to be exciting still for sure. 5 is probably the max we'll do.
