Anyone interested in starting a new keeper league?

  Probably only need about 10 people and I am happy to hold the kitty or ideally delegate that to someone else.

£25 in each.

If we get 10 yes's then we can sort the detail out.

d13phe, I don't mind acting as treasurer, but also I am more than happy to let you do it. We need to set up the league now. Anyone know how to do that?!

think these links will help?

for paypal, just put your email down and send invites as and when people send you the cash?

Cheers d13phe. I'll get on it today and update this thread as I progress. My email address for the paypal £25 fee is malcolmsamson@hyfi.co.uk       

What prize structure are we dishing out?
By:
d13phe
When: 02 Aug 13 09:13
top 2

75% and 25%

happy for other input though?

Uncle O has a third prize in his leagues of highest regular weekly points total for the whole season. That gives everyone an interest every week even if they are not in playoff contention. What do you think?

d13phe, rec'd and invite sent. We need to select a draft time and date and how the league settings are to be set. At present I think I have it set for 3 keepers. The season is over 13 regular weeks with 4 teams progressing. The championship games are over weeks 14 and 15 combined and the superbowl over weeks 16 and 17 combined. Are league members happy with that or maybe change it as week 17 could be a dead rubber for some starters. Possibly have a 12 week regular season and then go knockout over the next 4 weeks to week 16, leaving week 17 out altogether. Majority decisions rules on the rules!

i am happy with that lance (first option)

When: 02 Aug 13 18:22
Ok d13phe, I'm happy with the first scenario play off proposition as well. Not sure about the number of keepers though. When I saw the example of how the league worked they cited 3 for the example. We all have a squad of 16 of which 9 will be starters. I think we need more than 3 keepers otherwise it's not really a keeper league. How about 6 or is that too many (or not enough). Majority decision again please.

How do the other guys run theirs?  Some online guides say no more than 2 keepers per season but that seems very small to me and kind of defeats the idea of building a team over a number of seasons.  I would say 3 minimum but happy to get advice on it.
By:
d13phe
When: 02 Aug 13 18:36
how about 4?

that sounds a nice nuumber?

Our fellow Forum keeper league has 2 keepers per team, and no player drafted in the first 2 rounds is allowed to be a keeper. Food for thought. Discuss!
By:
Zach_Thomas54
When: 03 Aug 13 15:19
just the 2... if you have ever played a keeper league before, you will realise that 2 is the way to go!!

email address private messaged to you Lance.

Cheers Zach, invite sent. Being a bunch of rookies we need guidance from the vets. If we do go 2, do we use the "not in the first two rounds" rule?

how about 3 keepers consisting of 1 rb,  1wr, 1qb
that way there will still be decent top picks out there the following season for the poor guy who auto picks blaine gabbert, percy harvin, Jeremy maclin and Michael crabtree !
