3 sport Fantasy Keeper League

I have discussed with friends the idea of making a league that consists of Fantasy Baseball, baksetball, and football. The leagues would all be keeper leagues and the scoring would be head to head. You would be potentially able to trade draft picks and players across sports. You will keep 75% of your roster in each sport. There will also be a yearly overall winner of the player with the total best finish. (adding the position you finish each sport together)I have 6-8 people that I know are in and hardcore fantasy players. Looking to gauge the interest of anyone on the board. Trying to start with this years football. $200 a year, $50 each sport and $50 for the overall.

We have a league almost identical to this. Only difference is we do roto, auction, and only keep 5 per sport (3 for football). You can also trade draft cash but we limited the trades to the individual sports, though some people are trying to open that up. We also throw in March Madness as a wild card for the overall title that is worth less than the individual sports. I can send you our "Constitution" if you would like.

Very cool idea. Would require A LOT of record keeping, but if you had an organized commish, it would be fun.

Sounds like a cool idea, but what's to keep someone from tanking in one sport to wreck another one if you can trade cross platforms?

75% of the roster keeper's will also mean a lot of people dropping out I'd imagine. That's a ton of fricking players.

Actually, baseball is the easiest for me to fill, basketball on the other hand is a little tougher.

Hoepfully the yearly overall prize money will keep people from tanking one sport to try and win another.

And as for the keepers 75% may be too many but I want to be able to keep the identity of each team the same from year to year. Maybe %50 is a better number.

re: 3 sport Fantasy Keeper League
Since we've been doing this for a few years, I'll answer some of the issues that were brought up. Sorry if its long, this format is so much fun so I like to share what I know about it so other can enjoy as well.

We have 12 people. The turnover hasn't been terrible. We've had about 4 or 5 people quit over 3 years, most of which were friend of a friend types.

Of the 12 people, about 8 seriously try to win overall every year. Everyone tries to win football, of course. The competition for baseball and basketball is significantly lower, but one or two of the ones who don't care will have a good draft and provide some extra competition every year.

Its really not as bad as it seems. Everyone polices themselves pretty well on all of the keepers and such. We just have a google doc for keepers and a google doc for the standings (which are auto-generated with a fairly easy formula that can be copied from year to year. Do it once and forget about it). Outside of that there's really not much to keep up with. We even have a tab for Overall Standings for the years that we've been doing it (yours truly is currently in first by a narrow margin).

That's exactly why we don't have those two rules. If we had that, a bunch of people would trade everything they have in baseball and basketball for draft cash in football because that's all they really care about.

We also limit our keepers to 5 (2 for football). Keeps people eager to get the best keepers. It also doesn't completely bury you if you have bad keepers. I had so-so keepers in baseball this year and decided to rebuild...turned my keepers into Davis, Gomez, Machado, Shelby Miller, and Puig (hopefully he keeps it up) which will only cost me about $19.

It is usually a particular point of contention between us.

I just have to make a point not to check scores while we're out at dinner or with her family and I'm fine
