Keeper Rules
3. Drafts will be conducted in the reverse order of the previous year’s league standings.
4. Prior to the draft, each manager may designate 3 Franchise Players (FP) and 2 Development Players (DP). Managers are not required to keep any players. All non-designated players return to the draft pool.
5. FP players are protected and cannot be picked by any other manager in the draft. FPs will occupy their same draft round pick from the previous year if they were picked in rounds 1-3, and one round earlier if previously picked in rounds 4-15. If both the third and fourth round pick are designated players, the fourth round pick will be designated instead of losing a higher pick.
6. A DP is defined as any player with 3 or less years of NFL experience.
7. DP draft slots will be one round earlier per rule 5. No players with a draft slot in rounds 1-3 may be designated as a DP.
8. DP players are unprotected in rounds 1-3. If Manager A picks Manager Bs Development Player, Manager A will forfeit their fourth round draft slot to Manager B, and receive the draft slot originally allocated to the DP. Any DPs not picked in the first 3 rounds become protected.
9. If a manager does not have their fourth round pick available, they may not draft another manager’s DP.
10. At the season end a list of the final rosters will be created containing the original draft round of each player. Players originally drafted by other teams (trade or pick up) shall also maintain their original draft round. When 2 keepers were selected in the same round, the manager must allocate an earlier round draft slot to the higher overall draft pick, or release one of the players back to the draft pool. Any undrafted Free Agent (FA) pickup over the season shall be allocated a 10th round pick or earlier if designed as a FP or DP.
11. Prior to the draft, the draft board will be circulated specifying the draft order, protected FP and DP players and traded draft slots.
12. New managers may 'Mulligan', ie select no keepers and jump to draft position 1. If more than one or more managers decide to do this, the order of whom drafts first each round will alternate.
