Kevin Hagan's Joe Sam Keeper League, 2019 Results, LM Notes

Great Run, Chris! Like the Saints you kept tweaking that roster right to the end...

And congratulations to our newest rookie team, LouisianaSpankDaddy, who had a sweet run as well with the runner up placement.

This season probably had more parity than we've ever seen - know Hagan would be grinning at the results, and proud of 'em...

We've got two Black and Gold members who've requested to join which is keeping with Hagan's tradition of B&G Members, so we'll need to make some room...

How? As much as I love my keepers, but know how it sucks when you've got to give up guys you've worked to acquire (twice to me), am proposing the following for this off-season:

First, We'll Declare Limited Keepers by the Superbowl, so we can relax and enjoy the Lombardi Gras!

For this season, Current Team GMs will only be able to keep three on offense, three on defense, AND one current Saint on offense and one on defense so we can all satisfy the homers in all of us!

That means I'm giving up either CantGuardMike or Alvin Kamara, so I'm that serious about doing this.

If there are no more than four objections, I'll make the changes for the New Year and will need y'all to have your Keepers declared in the one week window after January 1, 2020.

Also, I'd like to see us have co secretary/treasurer, separate from the Commisioner, to collect league fees for an award's pot. Kevin and I had discussed in a ten (10) team league doing the following:

League Champion/Gold Medalist gets 5X Annual Dues

Runner Up/Silver Medalists gets 2X Annual Dues

Mr. Consolation/Bronze Medalists gets 1X Annual Dues

High Season Total Score gets 1X Annual Dues (includes playoffs)

High Game Score gets 1X Annual Dues (includes playoffs)

The last two are to keep everyone interested throughout the season...

I'd humbly nominate Larry (Guido) to manage this for us in that capacity...

We can do this through PayPal and start off at a modest $10 for the first year; if there are any PayPal fees we can all allow for the deductions that service will likely take, whoever is Sec/Tres can manage it...

I'd like to have the Awards plan in place by the Superbowl...

Other considerations are moving the draft date to earlier in the year, maybe even trying to start using the draft trade picks options...

Couple of housekeeping items:

Under team settings, there's a field for designating an abbreviation for your team, please use a reference to your Black and Gold call-sign/username; it makes the transition easier for all...

Also, Kevin really liked seeing the pot stirred, as the ESPN site is very "busy" we're gonna try something different...

Let's start using BlackandGold.com > Main > Saints > Fantasy forum, find 2019 Kevin Hagan's JoeSamKeepers Thread for trash talk and league communications...

Please subscribe to the thread so you'll get updates...

Please chime in on the above proposals on the that thread...

Thanks Again Everyone, and I wish my Brothers a Merry Christmas/Happy Hanukkah, God Bless All Here With Health and Happiness!

What a strange, wild, baffling season! I have no idea how I made that run to the Championship as a .500 team but any given Sunday. I love this league and it’s the only one I participate in these days so I’m excited for these changes you want to roll out JP! Here’s to bigger and better things for the league.

We should start gearing things up in the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned...

Another league I am in just moved to a new source to handle fees and payouts, LeagueSafe.

I'll look into it. Payments are made via credit/debit or eChecks. It is free and doesn't have service charges. I pretty sure you can set up automated payouts based upon the criteria you pointed out. The money stays in their "safe" so it would never be in my pocket ... until I win it in the end.

That's what pays for the service. They get interest, most likely.

JP, are you going to go ahead and activate the 2020 league site? I want to get it set up with LeagueSafe to collect fees and automate payouts at the end of the year. It is a free service for fantasy leagues and keeps the money out of private hands. I know we're only talking a total of $80, but it worked great for a 48 team, $30 entry league I'm in with complex payouts.

https://fantasy.espn.com/football/le...&seasonId=2020

I'll post the LeagueSafe payment link here when I get it set up and we're ready to collect.

I am Believing!

Re: Kevin Hagan's Joe Sam Keeper League, 2019 Results, LM Notes

JP, you said you and Kevin discussed a ten player league. We currently have only eight. Might I suggest that if we can wrangle up two more owners that the existing owners make all of their drops to get to the proposed keeper requirements and then have an off-site snake draft with the two new owners, based upon a random draw to see who goes first, to allow them to also reach the same keeper requirements. As you mentioned, under this scenario one will get either Kamara or Michael Thomas.

Those keeper requirements were:

three on offense, three on defense, AND one current Saint on offense and one on defense

The commish could then add those selected players to the new owner's rosters and we could proceed with an on-site draft to complete the rosters.

That draft could either be randomly generated order or based upon last year's final standings in reverse order with some sort of insertion methodology for the two new owners into the draft flow.

Typically, traditionally what has happened when we add new team GMs is that the draft will start and the expansions teams pick until their Keeper slots are full then the rounds expand to all teams...

The Keepers are the selections for the first few rounds for the existing teams ...
