My friends and I have just been doing leagues from scratch every year but we are starting a keeper league in the fall for football and then next spring for baseball...how do people usually set them up? How many players is standard in both football and baseball to keep? We discussed giving up the draft pick for the player you are keeping...like if you drafted Hanley or LT in the 1st round this year, and you wanted to keep them, you would give up your first round pick next year...or if you took a flier on a rookie late in the draft you'd only have to give up that late round pick...is there a better way?
I prefer auctions for keepers. Are you guys in different cities so that's not possible? Maybe a few on speaker phone? Then keep five players and their salary is inflated $5 each year. If you want to do a snake draft, I would do five and have the players round lost like you said with Hanley. I don't think a snake draft works as well for keepers though.
