    -Winner takes 70%, 2nd place 20%, 3rd place 10%

    Draft:
    -I'd prefer an Auction draft for the first season. More competitive and for a keeper league cuts out a lot of the excuses down the road. Snake seems to add more blind luck to a game that already has enough luck involved.
    -I've never been in a keeper league, but I'm assuming the following year(s) drafts are done as snake, ordered by how the teams finished the previous season.

    Settings:
    -PPR? 1/2 PPR? No PPR?
    -1 QB?
    -2 RB's?
    -2 WR's?
    -1 TE?
    -1 Flex (wr/rb? wr/te? rb/te?)
    -1 K
    -1 D

    I'm fine with the standard yardage settings most leagues use, but we could tweak those too based on what people agree on.

    I like jaygabriels idea of adding 10% to what you paid at auction to keep a player.

    I also think the max players kept should be 3.

    But jaygabriel for future drafts do you still do auction first? I like the concept of teams who finished last place getting first pick the following year and doing snake.

    Would like to hear argument for the other side though

    I'm good with the 10% as well and think it should stay auction the 2nd season as well, that's where the strategy part comes in

    I'm waiting to hear about jaygabriel 's format, but what i'm thinking is:

    1st year:
    -Auction draft, $200 to spend, pick until you're out of money or have picked 7 players
    -Remaining players picked via snake, order determined by when you get out of auction. (first out of auction picks last in snake, and so on. players left with $ once auction ends are ranked in snake based on money they had left)

    Following years:
    -Keep up to 3 players
    -Remaining players are drafted via snake, order determined by how league finished previous season
    ***The thing I like about this system is it gives incentive for those who finished toward the bottom to remain in league

    Another option for following years:
    -Keep up to 3 players. Players you keep you pay their auction total last year plus 10%
    -Have Auction draft
    -Snake draft once auction ends based on order you exited auction
    ***Forces players to make tough decisions on who to keep, especially if they overpaid for the player in the original auction and now have to pay 10% more

    I'm open to any concepts that we can all agree on, as long as it's auction based

    did deadly medley used to be someone else?

    i like the +10%/only keep people under X amount of dollars rules. Adds strategy and levels the playing field a little so people dont get lucky on a 1 dollar guy (cam newton), keep him and then be able to keep say AP and Megatron as well

    I'm cool with that.

    I like the 10% deal as well. Seen it used before, but an auction draft would have to be used every year after that.

    I'm cool with the 10% deal and auction draft. Certainly involves more strategy and if we're doing this long term, seems like the best option.

    Yeah, but that takes a lot of the strategy out of it. It makes you have to play for the future as well as the present, which is what a dynasty league is all about. Shouldn't penalize the guy that jumps in and gets the guy before everyone else.

    ESPN will work for the first year, but it'll be tricky to use the ESPN system to draft with keepers if we use the limited funds method for the second year (i.e. no way that I know of to reduce someone's budget prior to the draft). But we have 21 months to figure that out.

    But drafting in person in A.C. every year would eliminate this issue altogether.

    i dont really follow your point at all. if anything adding a premium/restrictions to who you keep adds a ton of strategy every year

    What I'm saying is there's no reason you should penalize the guy that finds the diamond in the rough or buys low on a guy. If you look at last year to this year that would have essentially made Foster, McFadden and a bunch of others unkeepable (due to the low $ amount paid for them last year), which I think is wrong.

    One thing we've always done to try to correct it so someone couldn't build a juggernaut is give a player a four-year shelf life on a team. Keeps the guy that drafts Cam for a buck from only paying $16 for him after keeping him for 15 years, but it doesn't penalize him for having the foresight to pick him up. But those are just the way we do it in one of my leagues; I'm sure there are a ton of different ways we can do it.

    if anyone drops out you'll be the first we add (or if Scorsese's spot comes open :loldog:). Its pretty common that we lose one or two when it gets closer to the draft

    I personally like 12 team leagues. You can still grab several difference makers off waivers (i.e. Demarco Murray, Victor Cruz, etc)

    We could vote on it and see what the majority decides?

    My vote is 12. More money in the pot, still a deep roster, and still some decent fillers on waivers for byes/injuries.

    I'm voting for 10, mainly because in 12 team leagues there isn't much trading and waivers play too big of a role. Your end up starting random unheard of garbage players in hopes that they are next one to blow up instead of being able to analyze matchups with players who have a history in the league.

    I'm not completely against 12, I just think the teams are too watered down at that point.
