2015 Pre-Keeper Values

Decisions. Decisions. With the countdown to the Brothers Keeper declaration date marching ever closer (2 days! [Saturday, August 22, 2015 at 8 PM!) we have to weigh the values of or final 2014 rosters for the upcoming season. Who will we keep? Who will we throw away?

Every year owners struggle tremendously with this and this year is no different. If it isn't difficult, that means your team has no depth of talent! And that's okay, because you won't have the anguish others will feel for throwing players into the draft pool. Therefore it would be beneficial to the league to post the keeper values for each team's final roster from 2014.

This is has been done in the past on a team by team basis when I post reviews for each team. Last year I had less time and therefore made it just one post with less commentary. This year will be the same. If you are unable to see the values for your team please consult the Yahoo page for your team last year and do your own calculations. You can see some information there and on previous posts here.

I will review the information to see if it is correct. If you see anything that is incorrect please let me know and I will look into it and fix it if need be. However, in my estimate it is pretty accurate. The onus is on you to verify the info is correct. I will verify it again when the keepers are announced and declared.

This year we have the information to know who is and who is not developmental so be sure to review it. Thanks Ryan (Sloppy Butts)! If you think a player is please consult the Canons (section II. B.) as some players may have been started on another fantasy team last year and those starts were'nt included in your calculations.

The draft date is Saturday, September 5th. I hope you had a good offseason and wish you all the best as we stare down the beginning of league year activities.

Here is the link to the spreadsheet. From there you might be able to sort the information by team to see your team more succinctly. Otherwise, you also have the visual below.

Please be reminded that if you keep two 1st Round Keepers you will not have a second round pick. Also remember that if you keep two or more from the same round after the 1st round you will need to select a player to move up a round. For instance, one year Yer X-MOM kept two folks who were a 10th round pick. The owner had to choose which player became a 9th round pick from those two. So be sure to indicate this to the Commissioner when you report your keeper selections to him.

If a player was a keeper last year he will move up a round if kept again this year. This reflected in the chart below. The value of players you did not draft but were drafted by another team in 2014 are also reflected in the chart. Please feel free to ask the League Historian or the Commissioner about any clarifications of the Brothers Keeper Canons you may need help with.
