In this short series, I’ll try to help get your keeper team into shape leading up to your draft. In part one, we’ll talk about determining whether you’re a contender or not, and then focus on keeper selection and trade options. In part two we’ll get to the hallmark of a good keeper league (at least for me) the hybrid keeper draft and how to prepare.
I’ll drop one big, fat caveat before we get much further – and this should come as no surprise, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention it – the number of keeper spots in your given league has a massive impact on strategy. If you only keep two players, you’re in a glorified redraft league and should play it like that. If you keep ten or more players, maybe you should convert to dynasty and be done with it. This advice is best for those leagues somewhere in between, and it is meant to be fluid. Its weight will be different depending on your keeper number (and any other specific restrictions you may have.)
Are You a Contender?
