One interesting note is that despite not accruing 50 IP Devin Williams is not a rookie in 2021 since he won the ROTY.

I've got the top 2 and maybe another top 7 or 8. But Pressly is the question mark that I might change.

Your energy is infectious! Looks like this will be a pretty good draft. Some of the available names are intriguing!

We're thinking draft starts March 8 or 15 so keepers would be due a few days before then.

More prospects/keepers means less parody and less potential competition.

This league tends to fizzle out as the season goes on because people find themselves so far out of it, and just forget about it. If that is the issue we want to address adding more prospects and keepers will only exacerbate that.

if anything it's the opposite, would lead to people who are out of it still paying attention

I don't know that it would.

The people who are more passively interested aren't as likely to be scouring the waiver wire and drafting prospects for 2-5 years in the future.

At least that is the way it feels like it would play out given the last however long I have been here.

I feel like this league always had 1 or 2 guys who give up in the past. With the new additions I felt like everyone pays attention full yr except for Grizz's friend last year but there were Covid circumstances so understandable. I don't think we'll have that problem this year but maybe wishful thinking.

Well, I would say that if we were to increase prospect keepers as D suggests (for next season not this one) then the nonprospect keeper portion should be lowered accordingly.
