Building a successful keeper fantasy football team requires strong knowledge of players. You must properly value future potential against current performance. An understanding of the shelf-life of various positions is also important. Follow the guidelines below to start forming your own keeper league strategies:
- Find the right balance of current performance versus future value in the initial draft
- Don't reach too early for young, unproven players since you can only keep 5 players from year to year
- Running-backs tend to have the shortest shelf life, while elite Quarter-backs can perform at a high level for many years
- Trading can be key to loading your team up for a title run, or dumping extra players that you won't be able to keep for one premium player
- Always look to improve your roster, even in tiny increments
- Study the college game to learn about the future stars
