    This draft crop feels less exciting than last year's. Maybe it's just me

    Next season should have a rule change to a 2 or 3 round draft. Let the rest go back into the FA pool.

    @Poppa San I get the "helpful" critique on the picks in the draft, but why is my Guise pick creative?

    Because I close my eyes then click? I just undo the winner, disagree, and agree clicks.

    If you have any suggestions for changes to the league then post them here. We can hold a vote on each item after the draft.

    Thanks. I needed the affirmation. I think he is the last potential stud at RB on the board.

    I closed the other thread and will bring the discussion here.
    Should we / could we look into expanding the league? 2 more teams to spread the talent out wider. As is, teams typically have deep enough rosters to weather the bye weeks plus a full IR list, as long as one position isn't decimated. Even then streaming the position sometimes works. I get more trade offers and action in my 16 & 20 team redraft leagues than I do here. Ignoring trades for draft slots that is.

    I think the best option would be to make the roster benches by a few spots unless 2 people REALLY want dynasty teams. If we added two teams then they are guaranteed the #1 and #2 picks in next years draft to compensate. Also, benches would be made smaller by 5 spots.

    Reducing roster sizes just puts better people available for waivers.

    No argument there. We can vote on that and reducing the number of draft picks. Nothing could take place until after the 2019 season.

    That's the challenge. To build a team you have to do it thru the draft and smart player pickups. If we add 2 teams then yes, decrease roster 2 spots. But if we dont increase, I say keep roster size the same.

    As far as expansion, do it like NHL. Each gm make a few players avail and let em build their roster that way, taking your players away.

    Amish, that is the best solution.

    Existing GMs choose 2 or 3 keepers
    New GMs take turns picking from existing GMs' teams only for x amount of rounds.

    Existing GMs make final claim of what's leftover after the GM draft.

    Then round z begins a redraft for all GMs with the new roster size n depth charts in mind.

    It's like a soft reboot of the league and gives new teams competitive rosters.

    Although the numbers can be tweaked, assuming adding 2 teams, I was thinking of the expansion draft consisting of:
    Existing teams keep a starting roster - not including flex players.
    Existing GM's keep 5 more skill players - no kickers or defenses.
    That totals 14 players per team kept and makes 150+ currently rostered players available.
    New GMs then pick but each existing team can lose only 2 players per position. These players cannot be traded for one full season except back to their original team.
    New teams draft 1 & 2 in first and 2nd round then alternate 5 picks each after round 2 and before round 3. No more draft picks.

    No. I was thinking 20 keepers. Not 2 or 3! The expansion teams would instantly be the favorites to win. I picked up another team in Woodys keeper league. I had no keepers. Took me 4 years to build up the talent but I was very competitive last year.

    I think he was advocating for the existing GMs to have their 2-3 keepers and then everybody redrafts.

    Poppa’s idea looks like the most reasonable option, if we decide to go with an expansion. I wouldn’t support any option that left me with only 2-3 keepers though.
