The league has been renewed for yet another season of whining, complaining, crying and chest thumping. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention fun.

Draft date/time: Sunday, September 5, 2021 5:30 PM ET
Keeper designation deadline: Saturday, September 4, 2021

Reminder of how the keeper draft works (2D is new since this is our 2nd year as a keeper league):

1 – Each team can keep 2 players from last year's roster.
2 – You will forfeit your draft pick in this year's draft based on where they were drafted last year, minus 1 round. The exception to this is 1st round picks from last year - you can keep that player and you would give up your 1st round pick to do so.
2A – Example: I drafted Derrick Henry last year in the 2nd round. If I want to keep him, I forfeit my 1st round pick in this year's draft.
2B – It matters where the player was drafted last year, not that you were the one who drafted him. In other words, if Team A drafted Player X in the 7th round and that player was dropped and picked up by another team or that player was traded to another team, the team that had the player on their roster at the end of the season last year is the one who can choose to keep that player and they would give up their 6th round pick in this year's draft in order to do so in this example.
2C – Players that were undrafted last year may be kept if they were on your roster at the end of the 2020 season. In order to keep them, you would forfeit the round that they are projected to be drafted in this year's draft based on Yahoo's ADP for the 2021 season.
2D - You cannot keep both players you drafted in the first two rounds. Example - I can't keep Michael Thomas (my 1st round pick last year) AND Derrick Henry (my 2nd round pick) because I only have 1 first round pick to give up.
3 – The deadline to assign your keepers is Saturday, September 4th, 2021.
4 – You don't have to keep any players from your 2020 end-of-season roster if you don't want to. If you choose to not keep anyone, you won't have to forfeit any draft picks. In addition, if you decide to keep just 1 player, you will only have to give up the 1 draft pick.

Other notes:

1 – We are a “keeper” league (see draft rules above)
2 – We are ½ point PPR league. The player catching the forward pass will get .5 points for each reception – this is in addition to whatever points they receive for yardage. An interception does not count as this is counted as an interception and not a reception.
3 – The playoffs will consist of the top 4 finishers in the league based on record (tie breaker is overall points scored)
4 – Draft order will be determined by reverse order of how each team finished last year.

I'm okay with that if I'm your opponent. LOL! Who stopped playing last year and started a bunch of players who were out? That really wasn't very fair.

Ecofarm is out as he has done this 2 years in a row and Bucky dumped his entire roster when he was eliminated from the playoffs. Neither will be back this year.

No trades before the draft (no one has a roster yet) and no trading draft picks.

Obviously I'm out. Covid destroyed the last of my football interest. I'll try to throw in a heckle at the sports subforum or your fantasy thread now and then.

So McCaffrey would be my 1st choice...I lose a first rounder for him. I cant keep cook because he is also a first rounder. Im looking at Stefon Diggs as my 2nd keeper pick. What draft pick do I give up for him?

I love to try my hand at this if you have an opening. I have played for 20 years at ESPN. I don't quit or throw hissy fits, which seems to be a qualification.

Ugh. I was hoping to get in on this this year, but I cant make the draft.
I guess the Swinging Ditka’s are going to have to wait it out a year.

I've filled the last team with a friend of mine. I will do a random draw for who gets what team and send out the e-mails to the new owners in the next few days.

Edit: I've sent out invites to the three new manager to the e-mail address on file here.
