I had previously voted for 2 keepers, but I really like the idea of 2 offensive and 1 defensive keeper. That makes sense and I would change my vote if I could.

I'm also glad that you changed OP to RB/WR since I believe that was what was initially intended. Also, I still don't like the idea of expansion and it seems like it isn't going to happen now, which is a good thing. Let's keep it at 16 teams and just replace the owners (you know who you are) that quit in the middle of the season. This will allow the draft to begin in inverse order without having expansion picks first.

Here's to having had a great season and many more to come. :arrow:

This is a keeper league and the draft next year is supposed to be somewhat void of the top players. You must keep someone to build your team upon. Only 32 offensive players will be kept with and I would think there will be quite a few #2 RBs, WRs out there to fill team voids. There are quite a few roster spots on each team and the draft will be just as good because we are all still scrambling to find the next Frank Gore.

I'ts always the middle of the draft that is the most improtant and the most fun. The first two or three rounds are usually no-brainers and very predictable.

I also must know how we are going to handle the OP position.


I like the 2 Offensive and 1 Defensive keepers. As for the OP position, I think it should be changed to WR/RB/TE position, no QBs.


Just to let you know, there isn't an option for WR/RB/TE. It's either WR/RB or WR/TE.

If we go with the 2 O and 1 D idea, I think we ought to allow team defense and HC to become a defense option for those that want to do it. To be honest, I was considering keeping Tony Dungy for awhile before I changed my mind later in the season.

I sent an email to ESPN asking about the keeper options and when we will be able to lock in our keepers. The following is their reply to me:

Quote:
Richard,

Thank you for contacting the League Office.

We have not yet released the keeper options. Please check back in a
couple of months as we are setting up the leagues for the next season.

Thank you for playing ESPN.com Fantasy Games!

Regards,
The Commish

Ok in regards to the Keeper league ESPN will be reopening the league window on Monday 25th of June so everyone who is a team owner or prospective team owner can now start getting ready for the new season as it begins this monday.

Congrats to our defending champ and also to all who played last year and made the league the success.

Here's looking forward to another very interesting year with renewed rivalries (Sli that is you in my case) and friendships.

Did your team do worse than the Lions last season? :cry:
Worried that you have only one stud to keep and that there will be nothing but slim pickens to suppliment him? :cry:

K-Mart, the FF Keeper, One-stop, shopping super center is open for business!! :arrow: :idea:

I've got a host of keepers that I'm willing to trade off. If there are teams with only one good keeper on their team and would like two or three of my keepers in return... just PM me.

I've got:

P. Manning (top 5 QB)
W. Parker (top 10 RB)
T. Henry (top 10 to 15 RB)
L. Coles (top 10 to 15 WR)
M. Coleston (top 10 to 15 WR)
T. Gonzalez (top 5 TE)
Baltimore D (top 5 Def)
M. Hasselback (top 10 QB). Remember there are only 32 starting QB's and 16 FF teams who need 2 QB's each. With the settings favoring QB's with good completion %, low sacks, ints and fumbles. Only 16 are worth starting every week. Don't get caught without one!! :wink:

You too can be just like the Lions this off season by trading your assets for a pot of gold 8) . I can only keep 3 so if you need one make me an offer!! The offers are comming in already!! Hurry before I'm all sold out!!
