    Default NFL Fantasy Football Keeper League (Off-Season Discussion)

    We just had one excellent season, congrats again to Mack North. This will be the place we talk off-season trades, keeper selections and draft preparation. Below is the finalized draft order based on the inverted final league standings:

    Official Draft Order
    1. Dark Knight
    2. iggyiggyigoudala
    3. A00715890
    4. RaptorsFan4Life
    5. Doc Naismith
    6. Apollo
    7. MangoKid
    8. Mack North

    The draft will take place in August roughly a couple weeks before Week 1. If we bring in two new owners they will draft 9th and 10th, determined based on coin toss.

    Hey Apollo, I think it would be appropriate if you changed my team name to the DK Clippers. :P

    So if I decide to keep Drew Brees, does that mean I lose my 2nd pick since I drafted him in the second round?

    Nope, you lose a 1st rounder. This years draft is not influenced by last years.

    Ya, you'll have to explain the keeper league rules to me and how they apply to next years draft. This is the first one I've done and don't know how it works moving forward.

    Default Keeper Rules

    • Each team gets five "keeper tags".
    • A "keeper tag" allows you to mark a specific player on your team to carry over to next season. For every keeper tag you choose to use you forfeit a draft pick.

    You can keep any number of offensive or defensive players. You could keep five defensive guys and no offensive guys if you chose to do so.

    With every offensive player kept a draft pick is deducted starting with the 1st round pick.

    With every defensive player kept a draft pick is deducted starting with the 8th round pick (A00715890 set the precedent by selecting Patrick Willis in round 8. Many more followed in round 9 so round 8 sounds fair). Let's use my team as an example. Let's pretend my keepers were:

    Hines Ward, Derrick Ward, Jason Snelling, Julius Peppers and Patrick Willis.

    That's three offensive keepers and two defensive keepers. That means I'd lose picks in rounds 1-3 and 8-9.

    • You may conduct trades in the off-season on this board but only keepers can be traded as all other players will be released to the draft. Because of this before a trade can be made you must finalize your keepers.
    • A trade won't go through in the off-season unless a majority votes for or against the trade. Trades can be discussed through PMs privately or publicly here. Once both sides are in agreement one of the two should announce the trade with the other confirming it by responding to the announcement. At that point the league votes by sending me a PM. The two parties involved have votes which count towards the outcome, just as it works at Yahoo Fantasy Sports.
    • The absolute deadline to finalize keepers is one week before the draft, which is some time in early to mid August. Should a player get injured for the season in that one week window we'll bend the rules on that one and allow a replacement to be selected... Assuming the player was not involved in an off-season trade.

    I'd probably be looking at:
    Philip Rivers, QB, Chargers
    Calvin Johnson, WR, Lions
    Maurice Jones-Drew, RB, Jaguars
    Rashard Mendenhall, RB, Steelers

    My 5th player will either be
    Greg Jennings, WR, Packers
    Jason Witten, TE, Cowboys or
    Ndamakong Suh, DT, Lions

    Default Yahoo Sports Big Board For 2011

    Here's the top 15, click the link for the complete list of 50:

    1. Arian Foster
    2. Adrian Peterson
    3. Chris Johnson
    4. Jamal Charles
    5. LeSean McCoy
    6. Darren McFadden
    7. Maurice Jones-Drew
    8. Rashard Mendenhall
    9. Michael Turner
    10. Ray Rice
    11. Michael Vick
    12. Aaron Rodgers
    13. Frank Gore
    14. Roddy White
    15. Andre Johnson
    Source: Yahoo Sports

    I'm entering the off-season with five out of the top 15. The only guys I'm willing to trade in that five are Michael Turner and Frank Gore. I'd like to move one of those guys for another elite receiver or maybe JerMichael Finley. I'm off Gates now that he has foot problems. Turner or Gore for Andre Johnson or Hakeem Nicks is what I'm thinking.

    There will be some nice options in round five. I'm going to have to drop a few guys who could go in the top three rounds in standard Yahoo leagues...

    Default Season 2

    Yahoo opened the doors to the 2011 season extremely early this year. Last week... Could have been the week before, can't remember, I got an email from them telling me I could go create the league for this season so I did it right then and there. I can send out the details if you guys want it.

    FYI,
    • Frank Gore
    • DeAngelo Williams
    • Michael Turner
    • Mike Wallace
    • Brandon Marshall


    They're all on the block. No uneven player numbers in trades prior to the season. So in other words only one for ones, two for twos, etc. allowed. It would mess up the draft if we did it any other way.

    If there are spots available, I'd be interested in either taking over a team or starting a new team (assuming you can get another to keep it even).

    It'll be tough to start from scratch on a 0-5 keeper league though.

    I am sending a league invitation to everyone in the league who has posted here in 2011. If you haven't been active in 2011 then I apologize but this league is for active members of the forum first and foremost.

    Ebrian, you have an invite in your inbox.
