Wanting to start a new ESPN HTH keeper league

Recommended Posts

We are looking  a few more good  owners to start a new ESPN keeper league. I have several good guys are already committed . But need a few more. Experience not necessary, only a love of game, willingness to communicate with your new "mates" ( appropriate trash talking is welcome)   and a commitment to stay active hopefully for the long term. Its free. As an experience LM I am very open to member input on tweaking the scoring system, # of keepers ,draft date,etc. If interested email me at dirvine@cableone.net. Hopefully the season will be starting  soon!

Thanks for your interest everyone that has emailed  !
 
Yes we are still in need of owners ! I have several others considering it now . Here the link to the league page . 
 
 
Let me know if that works and answers your questions… Basically we are looking at H-T-H points league with a 40 player roster (deep) with somewhere around 10 to12 keepers per year. 10 minimum, teams possibly  expanding to 12 if I can find enough owners. Draft will be snake (likely ) the first year and then there will be a draft position based  on final finishing position in future years . I will likely develop system that rewards those that don’t tank but still miss the playoffs.  There will be some issues that we will vote on as  a league once it fills.
 
This is my first point/keeper league as LM so I am open for feedback. I run several redraft/roto leagues for over 10 years but wanted to try something different the time.I like to run my leagues with lots input/votes from the members. The scoring system may change based on that input, but it also reflects  some my frustration with standard scoring systems .   
 
 If  that all sounds good, I can send you an invite to join if you are interested.  reach me dirvine@cableone.net

Not sure I see a huge difference?  Number of keepers ..roster spots for minor leagues only  ?

Need three more owners . Looking to create a hybrid balance between a keeper and dynasty league.  Beside my redraft league ,i am also involved in two keeper leagues . One is 40 man roster with 30 keepers. i took over a roster that was very bad and it’s going to take a few years (if prospects pan out ) to be competitive because there are just too many keepers and not only is waiver wire thin but also the draft.The other has a roster of 30 but only 6 keepers. It feels more like a re-draft league and  there is no point to even drafting prospects because you can't keep them from year to year . So that’s why I am splitting the difference here . Right now/ 35 roster/12 keepers .  Maybe 14 keepers?  I think there is a place in middle and I am trying to find that sweet spot. If you want to help me find it , i would welcome you in our league! dirvine@cableone.net

Need just one more good owner now ! Well maybe three as I'd like to make this a 12-team league,if possible. But 10 is viable

Thanks for reaching out to me. We still have at least one opening/three if we do 12-teams..mixed opinions right now if we should go to 12. Draft is TBD …some want to wait til spring training gets back but i am leaning to moving quicker 
 
 I am trying create a hybrid Keeper/dynasty league.. 35 roster/12 keepers?  Maybe 14 keepers?  Some of those keepers will be required to prospects. I think there is a place in middle and I am trying to find that sweet spot. If you want to help me find it , you might fit our league well. I run very democratic leagues and very open to  input . the roster/keeper size are hot issues now with the league members.  I want us to have the ability  to draft and keep some prospects while not making rosters so static that the annual draft becomes meaningless.Here is the link to page…let me know what you think. I like the ideas on reserving a set number for spots for prospects but ESPN has no setting for that , so it would be up to me as LM to set that up and enforce. Let me know what you think

Well I thought I was done with 10 good owners. Turns out two of my owners have gone MIA and are not engaging in league discussions. I can't understand why someone would join a league and then not respond to any league discussions for over two weeks. Short of having COVID19, I just don't understand! So if they don't engage soon, I may still be looking for two ACTIVE owners . If you can convince me that you will be one , I may just dump what's looking like dead weight before we begin a new league. The other eight guys look super! Email me at dirvine@cableone.net

Openings again ...I think I just had two owners get into a disagreement on Discord and both bolted on me. We don't draft til the 13th but draft order has been set. Anyone looking to join a league!  Contact me here or at dirvine@cableone .net  . Two teams appear to be available
