KEEPER LEAGUE DETAILS

Below are the rules for Keepers in our league. NOTE that we have changes in the 2017/18 season.

Keeper Player Due Date
The due date for each team to provide the Commish their Keeper Selections is the end of day September 1st and they must be provided ranked 1 through 10. The reason for a deadline is to give the commish enough time to set up the draft for all teams.

NOTE: Should any GM NOT get their keepers in by the deadline, 10 players will be randomly (by way of draw) selected from their team for them.


Keeper Players
Each team returning must select 10 Keeper players from their final roster of the previous season. Any player from any position can be selected, but when they are selected, these players will be then considered 'under contract' to this team.


The Contract
Each keeper player will be owned by a GM who drafted them for up to, and no more than, 2 full seasons (this has changed in 2017/18 - down from 3 seasons. Current 3 year contracts will be honored but all new will be 2). After their contract is up, they will become free agents and available for any team to draft that year. These end contract players will only be available for selection after the keeper player rounds are finished, typically starting in round 9(12).

- Teams/GM's are NOT required to keep the K player for the full duration of the contract. The player can be dropped at any time and made available for any team to acquire.

- If a new team does acquire this K player while on waivers, they will STILL be under the original contract on that new team.

- If the player clears waivers after being dropped, he is then released of his contract. If a team picks him up after that point, he will be not be considered under contract.

- A season or year is considered a period between draft day to draft day.


Keeper Trades
Should a team trade this under contract keeper player, the team who acquires them will assume that contract. If team A had the K player for 2 years and trades them, Team B will only be able to have this player for 1 year before they are available for drafting again.

Keepers DO NOT have to be be traded for Keepers. Any player can be traded for any player.
