This is our first offseason in the keeper league I run. 10 teams, standard, can keep 0-5 keepers.
Right now we have a 2 round penalty from where the player was originally drafted the year before. And the penalty accumulates over time if kept, so if I drafted Kelvin Benjamin in the 13th round last year he will become my 11th round pick this year, then my 9th the year after, so on and so on...
The rule I put in place is: If you traded away a draft pick, you can longer have a keeper in that round. So sticking with same example. If I gave up my 11th round pick I could not keep Benjamin at all (unless I acquired another 11th in another trade). Which also means if you have Benjamin and say got Jeremy Hill in a trade (also drafted in 13th round), you could only keep ONE unless you acquired an additional 11th round pick in a trade.
But I was thinking, should i change that rule? Instead of not being able to keep the player at all if you didn't have the appropriate pick, you'd just have to take a 3 round penalty and take Benjamin as your 10th rounder. And for the other scenario of having 2 players that were drafted in the same round, you'd take one in the 11th with the regular 2 round penalty and just take a 3 round penalty for the other (if you don't have more than one 11th rounder)
What would you guys rather if you were in my Keeper League, Rule 1 or Rule 2?
