AntSports Keeper League Rules Summary

AntSports keeper leagues rules are designed to keep the draft exciting and reward the teams that can draft well and develop young talent.

Draft day for many keeper leagues is boring. Not true in an AntSports keeper league. The players that are drafted in the top 3 rounds from last year are always returned to the draft pool, so the draft is still exciting.

Keeper League Rules: Details

The AntSports Keeper League Rules are :

  • Roster size : 18 players. No injured reserved.

  • Each team can keep from 0 to 3 players.

  • Players drafted in rounds 1 - 3 cannot be keepers.

  • Players can be kept a maximum of 3 times.

  • For each player you keep, you must give up a draft pick 2 rounds higher than the player's draft position the year before.

  • Draft position is based on the order in which you finish. Note: The better your team does during the consolation bracket, the better your draft pick. Consolation bracket winner gets 1st pick next year. This rule encourages teams to try to keep winning. I don't like leagues where teams try to lose the last few weeks.

Important Dates :
  • NFL Week (-6) : Returning Owners payment deadline. Usually July 25th.

  • NFL Week (-2) : Keepers are finalized, 3 days before the draft.

  • NFL Week (-2) : Draft Day. Keepers are finalized.

  • NFL Week 12 : Trading deadline is kickoff NFL Week 11.

  • NFL Week 18 : Roster Freeze.

Trading :
  • Future Draft picks cannot be traded.

  • All trades must be approved by the commish.

  • Weekly Trading Deadline : 24 hours before kickoff each week.

  • Keeper Status follows the traded player.
