New to Keeper/Auction format

Postby CheezWhit » Tue Aug 10, 2010 1:22 pm

Our 12 team league is finally abandoning the boring snake draft and going to an Auction format/keeper league style. What are some typical formats for Football like the standard $260 used in baseball. How many years are players typically able to be kept? Costs of extensions?

There are many ways to do it. I've seen keepers kept three years quite often. The money depends on the size. ESPN standard leagues are usually 200 dollars.

Here is an example you might be able to get some ideas from. ... per-league
Johnny Ringo: All right, 'lunger'. Let's do it.
Doc Holliday: Say when.
