    Keepers

    I know it's early, but with our regular season winding down, has anyone given any thought to who they're looking at for their keepers for next year?

    Right now I'm thinking:

    Roy Williams
    Rueben Droughns
    Randy Moss

    I'm not sure I have anyone worth keeping. I will probably look at the following:

    Ahman Green (only because RBs will probably be hard to come by in a keeper league)
    Tatum Bell (good potential there)
    Ronald Curry (ditto)
    Carson Palmer - maybe
    L.J. Smith...maybe

    Only keeper I really have is Alexander. Probably keep Hasselback also.

    I believe once the season is over (and I've once again secured the hardware) we'll set up the date for declaring keepers. It should be close to when the draft will start, so you have as much info as you can on the players to keep.

    And you have to keep three guys, Donk, so you have the same # of players on your roster as everyone else. This is one of the reasons I propose we can trade players and draft picks on the off-season. I'll keep a record on here over the offseason. However, to make things easy, you trade an equal number of players and picks. For example, if I wanted to trade Priest Holmes to Donk for his first round pick, he'd send me back some lame player and his 16th pick... make sense?

    Absolutely. Since we're in a keeper league, it the reverse of the final standings, including play-offs.

    So Donk has the #1 pick, the CCFL bowl winner is last, etc. The only question is if we snake the draft or use the same list each round, a la the NFL.

    My first notion is to snake it. But, then again, using a standard draft order should help out the higher seeds which seems appropriate in a partial-keeper league. I guess I would probably favor a standard draft order.

    I'm in a (pleasant) bind on my keepers and am open to all trade offers. I have four good ones:

    Julius Jones
    Antonio Gates
    Torry Holt
    Andre Johnson

    And a few others that may be appealing to some:

    Fred Taylor
    Plaxico Burress
    TJ Duckett

    If you are a little top heavy with, say a great QB, RB, or WR and not much else, give ole Plankton a ring in the offseason for a 2 (or 3) for 1 trade.

    other things too

    keepers:

    M. Harrison
    E. James

    other thoughts, should we modify the way points are earned also.. specifically for QB's. I remember when the Libations selected Peyton Manning #1 overall and was hassled for his apparent misguided pick. I think Qb's should earn less points per 10 or 15 yards or earn 1 pt per 20 yards, to bring their average points per game in line with other quality RBs, WRs, etc.
    Dude, I'm cheesing so hard right now.

    Some of us happen to like how quarterbacks earn points.

    Also, I have an extra one (Ben Roethlisberger) if someone needs one. Lemme know what you'd give me back.

    Hey, you better start Big Ben this week -- Peyton has no chance against a brutal Baltimore defense

    Yes, I can tell I've also enjoyed the points Bulger generated for me...well, at least until he got injured. It just seems that the QB's routinley are scoring 20-50 pts. When running backs routinley score 8-20.

    Well, it isn't because of how mant points per yards, as they get 1 point per 50 passing yards. What we've done the last two years is try to level the field between the "accurate" QB and the "I throw for a bazzillion yards and 5 TD's" QB.

    So, 1 point for a completion, and -.5 per incompletion. It skewed the QB position (which should be to some extent since you only start one), but it seemed to go a bit too far. Perhaps next year .5 for a completion and -.25 per incompletion?

    I'm sure we'll have several off-season polls.

    Two WR's and a TE? Ouch...

    The Wildfires have MUCH better deals for keeper-needers.

    I know of at least one player on your team I'd be willing to give up some draft picks for.... but I'll save that discussion for after the playoffs.

    Right now it looks like:

    Chris Brown
    Javon Walker
    Reggie Wayne

    JLewis is too much of a risk and hasn't performed all that well this year. We'll have to see. I've got everybody signed to long-term deals, so if you wanna make a trade, you won't have to worry about re-signing them

    It's funny... right now, most teams are going, "Wow... I wish I had another keeper spot!"

    I am sure I'll end up keeping Chad Johnson and one of my QBs. I won't decide on RBs till I see what happens with Bennett. If he ends up going to a good running team I may take a gamble and keep him.
