I've wanted to try a keeper league for years, but was never really able to get one together. This year, it looks like I've found enough people to put a league together. Thing is, I don't know enough to avoid pitfalls and I know a bunch of knowledgeable posters here are in keeper leagues. I'm not asking draft strategy and things, more basics:
- What is a good site to use? We've looked at CBS (meh) and Ottoneu. CBS is okay for a normal league and I like that it has some SABR options for stats, but I know the bare minimum about Ottoneu. Looks like it has some SABR options and a minimal cost per team/manager.
- We're planning to do an auction style draft.
- Obviously one big issue is that as a keeper league, how do you stop teams from just stocking up on young guys and end up with someone getting Miggy Cabrera at discount cost because everyone's too busy going after Trout, Trumbo, Harper, Myers, etc.? Do you bother worrying about that (seems like it may be a bit of a self correcting problem since a team loaded with prospects may kind of suck for a year or two until everyone reaches their potential)?
Any advice would be appreciated.
