    I'll join a non-keepers league

      OK, I checked and, as I suspected, since NFL's IR is "rest of the year," players aren't eligible for the list until they are out for the season (and therefore worthless to hang onto anyway). But this functionality would be critical in keeper/dynasty, say for someone who had Brady last year.

        We just added a Rookie keeper as well which started for this year (2008 rookies).

        It's done at another site called "Fleaflicker". Basically the way its done is that its a draft where each team is given its keepers, by the commish, prior to the start of the draft. So they are undraftable because they are already assigned to a team.
        Seems like the guys keeping fewer than 3 should get extra rounds at the beginning, not extra dregs at the end...

          what about an auction league?

          Snoopy?

          anyway, I'll join Rabbit's IDP league and I'd like to play an auction league.

          But if Imran says a keeper league is more fun I'll have to consider it even if I dont see the appeal immediately. Problem is I dont wanna go over 4 leagues (and 1 yahoo ID) and we might be playing 2 leagues at FFZ, that would limit me to 2 leagues here. So if FFZ has only 1 league I might be available if y'all have a 3rd league here and need players.

          wow, 6 defenders? Not that I mind, just never had to track down a DT or DE. That should be interesting

              I signed up as the Dodgy Challengers!

              Few comments:

              (1) On the number of keepers we maintain. Obviously, we can vary this number and make it independent of position. I'd opt for 4 or 5 and make it flexible.

              (2) The DEF players requirements are too precise and having to pick six defensive players in total is too many. I'd say we maximally pick 4 DEF players (1x DL, 2x LB and 1x DB), especially with the smaller bench.

              (3) The IR looks intriguing. Does it mean that if I put a player on IR that I can pick up an extra player above the regular roster requirements? If so, we'd need to have rules in place on:
              - "Quarantining" players who aren't injured
              - Manipulation of the trade market (based on the fact that a team with IR'ed players has more players to trade)

                I can run the non-IDP league, if there is enough interest in it.

                  BTW, I'll enter Keeper and Non, and I'll set up Salary Cap and Survivor when they become available.

                    Yikes, how many leagues are there gonna be?

                    Which will be the least time consuming & simpliest for beginners??

                      the non-IDP league would be easiest - thats a league with team defenses. Salary cap and survivor are other yahoo games and much easier to play, especially survivor. Just pick a team each week and if it wins, you survive.

                          To clarify for those considering sign-up:

                          1. The IDP is not intended to be dynasty/keeper. Not by me at least. Dynasty leagues require a long-term commitment and stability. Not to mention, another whole discussion on structure and rules.
                          2. The number of defenders is definitely open to discussion. But since Yahoo finally split out positions of defense, and this is IDP, seemed like a natural path. One at each position, with a 2nd LB because they're so plentiful.
                          3. I am not inclined to having more than 8 on the bench, regardless of the number of starters. (If we could enforce the positional composition of the bench, that would be different.) When the bench gets too big, the waiver wire becomes worthless.
                          4. As explained earlier, the DL (IR) is worthless in non-keeper leagues. Yahoo rules state that the player must be on the NFL DL IRL to be eligible for listing (just like Yahoo baseball).

                              Not sure what the standard is. But it may be more.

                              We like to promote the keeper part. As that is what is what more keeps the group together (it seems to me). Also, as Koy has pointed out, we may have fewer keepers than other keeper leagues.

                                Seems like a "rich get richer" approach.
