My favorite leagues are my keeper leagues. I play in two separate Auction draft 12 man keeper leagues. The way we play it is you get to keep each player for $7 more than he was drafted or kept for the previous season. So to draft guys like Paul George 2 years ago for $5, Harden for $30, Drummond for $1, or Eric Bledsoe for nothing (waiver) last year is paying off nicely this year. I love seeing sleeper posts because of this. Who are some of the players you are targeting as "Paul George" type picks who can go for small dollars this year?
  • Harkless (See Tobias Harris 2013-14 Season Outlook)
  • MCW (Really like the idea of getting the bastard child of Russell Westbrook and Ricky Rubio on my team)
  • Enes Kanter (You always want a Turkish big man on your team).
  • Luigi Datome (As a January WW pickup after they blow up the failed Drummond/Monroe duo)
  • Mark Morris (After he eats his brother and steals his powers, and seriously Frye is not part of the future of this team, he's more mascot material at this point),
  • Lamar Odom


Let me know if there is someone you're looking at.

I know most here don't do keeper leagues but I thought this might be a helpful discussion for those who do.

For some, like myself, injuries buried their team and it is time to plan for next year.  Others may just have a roster spot to use for a stash.

So who are some waiver wire players --whether they are a free agent at the end of the season, there is a vet holding them back who is a free agent, or they just have a ton of potential--that have promise for next year and might be a candidate for a potential low-end keeper?  For example, a Taj Gibson or last year, Eric Bledsoe?

Nerlens Noel?

I picked him up to leave on my IR slot for next year (you keep in the round they were drafted, so for me he can be a 15th rounder next year).  Worth it if you're doing okay, I think.
Everything I say is from the viewpoint of the following:
ESPN, 12 Teams, 15 players each, not including one IR spot people might or might not be using at any time. Weekly H2H.  Two year keepers, in the position you drafted them:

PG: Chris Paul (1), Goran Dragic (4), Jeff Teague (5)
SG: Kevin Martin (6), Kyle Korver (11), Mike Dunleavy (FA), Terrence Ross (FA)
SF: Paul Millsap (2), Jimmy Butler (7), Wilson Chandler (8), Danny Green (Trade), Al-Farouq Aminu(FA)
PF: Derrick Favors (9, keeper), Mirza Teletovic (FA)
C:  Anthony Davis (3, keeper)
IR: Nerlens Noel (potential keeper for next year, folks, FA)

Mod,

I understand creating a keeper league thread....any way you can change the main post, though?  Not many are going to respond in January to a post from September specifically asking about auction draft bargains

For keeper leagues, you stash now or you won't get that opportunity later. That is, unless you play in a vegetable league.

I am in a keeper league exactly like the OP except it's $6 more next season.  A few guys that would fall under the criteria that could really exceed their cost next year are:

John Henson (Depending on what the bucks do in the offseason; has put up some great numbers when given the chance this year and was probably a wire pick up or a $1 stash for most people)
Trey Burke (Assuming they get a Parker, Wiggins, Randle, Embiid type guy in the draft and you figure Hayward and Favors continue to get better, chances are this guy was less than $10 in a draft, especially with the injury)
Tim Hardaway Jr (If they can unload JR and lose Carmelo to FA, he's the main guy to benefit as a young and impressive player; probably an on again-off again wire guy in most leagues)
Miles Plumlee (Still young; impressive guy who gives boards, blocks, and FG%; looks to be a piece on a young and talented team with two stud guards; Len is still raw and battling injuries; most likely a wire pickup this season)
Iman Shumpert (See Tim Hardaway Jr...more established and can give a bit of everything; would really see a scoring bump if JR and Melo left NYC)
Lance Stephenson (Not much explaination needed; boardline all-star who was brought drafted on the cheap)

Pretty much the guys in my signature. :wub:


PS: Thinking of picking up Jan Vesely. He's finally been getting some minutes and is making the most of them by playing defense (STL/BLK), being active on the boards (REB) and scoring on cuts and alley oops (FG%). He was always more of a long term project and is finally showing flashes of being a capable NBA player. (Still) Needs to work on his FT shooting and jumpshot though.

He could become the Wiz starting PF next season if he keeps improving on his game.

I disagree on the Biyombo tout, I feel like we've waited long enough and it's not going to happen

Ben Mclemore. He's too talented...and I can't see him playing this bad forever.

I just feel that the mixup of the Sacramento Kings just isn't good for his skills.

If Mclemore is available in your keeper league, its time to step into a new league.

People are mentioning John Henson and Burke..so I just went with the flow of the posts so far.

If we want to go deeper than that, most definitely CJ Mccollum.

I love Henson.  He is a fantasy beast.  Unfortunately, the question is not what he can do--although I am wondering how he and Sanders will operate together, as Henson is much more productive fantasy-wise at the 5.  

The question is what will he be allowed to do.  What is going through the mind of Larry Drew and what in the world is/will that front office do personnel wise?  In some regards, I want Henson to be dealt away from that mess.  At the same time, who knows what situation he would move to and if he would have the opportunity to put the numbers that he does in Milwaukee?

I'm holding onto him and Gibson (unless I get a high draft pick offered or find someone else).  I'm banking on at least one of the two being worthy of a keeper slot next year but not sure which it will be.
