Having played redraft for many years now i wanted to try something different this year, in particular i wanted to try a keeper league.
I’ve been reading good things about Sleeper App so have created a league on Sleeper. If anyone is interested let me know.
There’s a few customisation’s that I’ve gone for which i will detail below but as it’s a new league we can put other suggestions to a vote in the app.
12 Player, Half PPR, 4 Keepers
Keepers - 4 keepers each year. Keepers cost you the pick for the round in which they were drafted. Undrafted players cost 15th round pick. Probably put a cap on the number of years a player can remain in your roster.(flexible on keeper rules, changes could be voted on)
Future draft order - Playoff teams will take up 7th -12th picks with champ picking 12th, Losers bracket will play for picks 1st - 6th with the winner of the losers bracket getting 1st pick next season) This should avoid people throwing games to get first pick.
Custom Roster - No Kicker, 3 WR, Flex (WR,RB,TE) and Superflex (WR,RB,TE,QB) 6 bench spots and 2 IR spots. So roster is QB, 2xRB, 3xWR, TE, Flex, Supeflex, D, 6xBN, 2xIR
Double Headers - Each week you play a H2H but also play against the median score of that week (top 6 scores get a win even if they lose their H2H, lose your match but finish as top 6 in league that week then you are 1-1 for the week). Sleeper includes this option so all worked out on the app.
Waivers - FAAB auction for waivers with a budget of $200 for the season.
Playoffs - 6 Teams, 2 Byes in first round.
Prizes - 12 players x £20 = £240 (1st - £120, 2nd £60, 3rd £20, Highest single week score £40)
As it is a keeper league i am hoping to get people who would be committed for years to come, the Sleeper app apparently has great chat facility for group and 1-1 chats and the hope is that we can have a sociable league. The polls feature should also help with everyone having an input over any future changes.
I’ve got a couple of mates interested so far but having played several Fan Pub leagues before i thought it put it on here first before advertising it elsewhere.
Looking to draft next week or week after, i’m quite busy the next two weekends so would prefer Tuesday - Friday evening but can be a bit flexible once we have players confirmed.
If anyone is interested drop me a message and i will share the league details.
