Ok, so it’s that time again! Time for a new year. Boy did last year suck. I was awful in both leagues. I think I finished and missed the playoffs in not just one league, but both leagues was awful. I did finally kick the shit out of my dude and his Youngstown Limos. Was Great, he didn’t talk to me in a month and I told him i hope his limo business sucks, haha. Ok, so not really but ya, I beat his ass!
So, this year we have a keeper league in myfantasyleague.com league. We had two stipulations for new rule.
- You can’t keep a guy that was drafted in the first two rounds
- A guy that you designate as a keeper, has to have been drafted and on your roster for the whole year.
I like rule two the most. This kept people from drafting hurt players and just keeping them holding out on your roster. Jordy Nelson would have been a great example of this. He was injured in the preseason, but could have been worth a 13th round pick if you kept him on your roster for the duration of the year. It also eliminates people from just dropping and picking up people as much. I always like to try and find a sleeper. But, if you do find a sleeper you are not able to keep it for a keeper.
Using your keeper is pretty cool too. I have two options of guys that I can keep from my squad. They are Keenan Allen (round 4) and Ameer Abdullah (Round 5). So, if I decide to keep Keenan Allen, then in this year’s draft I will lose my 4th round pick. Same goes for Ameer. So whatever round you drafted a guy you want to keep, you lose that pick and just get your keeper inserted. If you keep the same guy for two years in a row, then you will lose a first round pick that second year. Unfortunately for me, both of these guys could probably be drafter in later rounds. Neither are worth the pick where I drafted them.
Stay turned folks, I will be back with updates after our draft on the 27th of August!
