Keeper League protected rosters/pre-draft thread

Postposted on Wed Jul 09, 2008 2:26 pm

This is where we will discuss the pre-draft and deadlines for submitting protected rosters

1st of all, it seemed to me like last year's pre-draft worked pretty well so I think we'll go with the same thing this year. Can keep up to 3, but if you choose you can keep less and take the compensation picks in the pre-draft.

So, lets talk deadlines. The main draft is August 27th. I'd like to start the pre-draft on August 15th, just to make sure we get it done. However, if someone has a strenuous objection to starting it that early, speak up - I'm not married to the idea. I think we can have the protected rosters due a couple days ahead of the predraft (maybe August 13th) to give people a chance to prepare.

What say you?

What will be the order of the pre-draft?

If people aren't going to keep 3, that needs to be mentioned before the pre-draft begins, so others know those players are fair game to those also not keeping three for the pre-draft, right?

I wanna keep 5 players dammit! :x :wink: (Brady, Moss, T.O, Barber, and Jackson) all in the top 12 or so overall on the big boards. :D Which 3 do I keep *sigh*

How about pre-draft trades? 8)

They'll have to announce their 3 keepers before the pre-draft.

Hey now, on what grounds am I drafting that low? I demand to have my record magically changed! On the bright side, Kevin and I can screw each over.

Actually, IIRC from last year, the pre-draft wasn't a snake. So I'll just be screwing you. :D

Although I guess it'll be the same order in the regular draft... Fun times! Weren't we close in drafting order last year as well?

It seems like we are every year, and have the same half-dozen later-round targets.

The regular draft is snaking, so there will be screwing all around.

Ok.. silly question, but where do we find our rosters from last year? I'm pretty sure I'm ditching everyone, but better safe than sorry..

Thanks...

Hmm.. as the first pick, I'm guessing it really doesn't matter if I keep anyone or not :)

I'm pretty sure I've got my keepers set. Still on the fence about one of them, but I'll definitely be making at least pne pre-draft pick.

Well, I might as well give my one Keeper pick.

I'll be keeping Joseph Addai and taking two pre-draft selections.

Nice trade, guys.

Thanks to the trade with Fro I will be keeping.

Pay-ton Manning (that hayseed better heal quickly)
Marion Barber
Steven Jackson

I hated to trade AP because I want to really follow his career (maybe get him in another team), but I'm tired of having one star runningback and a bunch of runningscareds.

*sigh* I've seen rankings where those three are all in the top 10 or even the top 5. Going to make a good run to the playoffs. Hope you don't get knocked out of the first round this time? ;)

So, I'm looking to trade for a quality RB. Possible trades could be made for one or more of Reggie Wayne, Anquan Boldin, Marques Colston, Tony Romo, or anyone else on my championship winning roster, depending on the offer, of course.

Looking back, that seemed to be the time frames that we did before. I second the motion.

Ooof. That memory stings. Badly. :cry: I really did think that one was all mine.

2006 keeper year: 5th place (towards the bottom most of the year)
2007 keeper year: 3rd place (after being #1 all year)
2008 keeper year: ?????

Yes, I think I'm due for a keeper championship this year :wink:

Stiffie, those time frame look fine to me. I already listed my keepers anyway.
I forgot, after the pre-draft, will the regular live draft (starting at round 4) be random order and serpentine?

So do we still have to pull the keepers out of our pre-draft selection list or did that get taken care of (seems to have last year). :-?

after the protected rosters are in (tomorrow), I can add them to each team manually so that they don't show up as draftable come draft day.

I'm keeping Kolby Smith, Jason Hanson and the Washington defense*

Yeah, last year it was all taken care of automagically, so I imagine it'll be good this year. Apparently the Football Plus now has some keeper league options, but I don't know what's involved with that.

EDIT: Here's some info on it.
