  • Looking for some discussion & ideas on the structure of our keeper league. The owners have decided to address how to handle trades during the off-season and trades for draft picks. Hoping to get some different scenarios of how things are structured in other leagues.
    8 teams, 17 player roster. Lineup 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 RB/WR/TE, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 DST & 8 Bench.
    We have a ladder type keeper system that goes up one player each year up to 5, then back down to 2. So 2, 3, 4, 5, 4, 3, 2, 3, 4, 5 etc... Mandatory that you keep the league # each year.
    Where we find ourselves now is how to fairly handle trades of draft picks (at any point during the calendar year) and/or trading of players during the off-season. I'm looking for any input or ideas...so please feel free to share any and all ideas/suggestions.
    One Proposal Scenario:
    Team A has draft position of #3 and Team B has draft position of #6
    If team A trades a player to team B for a 3rd round pick during the season. Team A would select #3 in the 3rd round and #6 in the 3rd round. Would Team B then just assume Team A's selection in the 17th round (roster max is 17). Would another option be to allow Team A to make both picks in the 3rd round and their 17th round pick....then have a 10 day trading period to allow Team A the opportunity to negotiate a 2 for 1 deal with another team, thus bringing them into compliance with the roster max of 17? If a 2 for 1, 3 for 2 type deal cannot get done in that 10 day window...then Team A must make a roster cut to get to 17 players.
    Off-Season Scenario:
    Team A decides he doesn't have 4 great keepers, has Adrian Peterson and wants to trade him for Lamar Miller and Amari Cooper. Team B has 4 keepers and would trade Miller/Cooper for AP and release 1 of his keepers back into the draft. When Team A sends 1 player over and receives 2...is he forced at that moment to release a player from his roster to make room and maintain the max of 17?
    Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.
