Not sure it would be easy for an on-line league to save the previous year's roster.  But if you have the same members, just make the first round picks the keepers.

I think Normmm was probably right all along, we'll be really good next year.

A good easy set up is 5 keepers minimum, 10 max.  Draft starts with round 6 in reality, if you keep more than 5, you get skipped in that round of the draft.
 
Have keepers at a max 3 season holding period (not including the year drafted.. so you can have someone for 4 seasons in full)
 
This draft is the easy one, next year if when it gets interesting.

I think 10 is too many.  If a team sucks, those members are going to just want to drop out.

I was just throwing numbers out there.. You can do 3 keepers min, with 5 max.. I was in a leauge forever with 1 keeper, it wasn't as much fun as having 3 or so, you get rewarded for having good drafts more so with multi keeprs.

would all the people be interested if it was say, $20 per year?

Yes.  But also depending on how many keepers you decide to do.  I'd vote for no more than 3.

No, last time I was in a fantasy league that was paid for I never got my money for winning.  I would need strong assurances that everyone would pay before I even considered it.

Agreed that is the intrigue of a keeper league.  I've been on the good and bad ends of this.  I was in one league with Tomlinson, Tory Holt and Manning as keepers, when Tomlinson was at his peak.  It was almost unfair.  I had to hear people bit** that I got to keep LT for 4 years.

The bad was when I was stuck with the likes of Joey Galloway, Curtis Martin, Steve McNair.

We have a Keeper League that manages this issue.
 
We lkike the Keeper idea but LOVE the draft (which the fun in the draft is all about the 1st 5 rounds).
 
So...we only allow 3 keepers max and you can only keep a player for 2 consecutive seasons.  Meaning if you draft a player or pick up a FA player you can then keep that player for 2 more years.  So the max a player can stay on one team is 3 yrs.
 
Also, for each Keeper, you lose a draft pick 2 rounds ahead of where that player was drafted last year.  This is huge!  It maintains the 1st 3 rounds of the draft and you only Keep players that you got undervalued but are worth giving up more valuable draft picks in the next year's draft.
 
It took us a while to tweak it to this point but we love it.
 
It adds the Keeper element (with additional strategy) but maintains the fun of the draft.
