Our league converted to a keeper league last year. We use an auction draft. We decided that you could keep 5 players at a 5% increase to what you paid the year before. This lead to some late season uneven trades. For Example, some trading a stud player that they wouldn't keep due to the next years price, for a young cheap player. We understand that is the idea, but someteams were just having a mass fire sale of their Studs and taken what ever they could get.
The guestions is, in an auction, keeper league, what are other leauges doing with in-season management, trades, and free agent pickups. Do you use an in-season salary cap? Any suggestions? Thanks!

My league uses an in season salary cap of $300. We also have a rule that before you have a firesale you have to announce it to the whole league to give all owners a chance at cashing in on that firesale.

I don't think there are many ways to get around it. There are going to be some trades that appear to be lopsided in keeper leagues. You can vote on trades, but too often this leads to owners voting against trades simply because they see another team as getting an advantage over them. The commissioner can make rulings on trades, but that's never good to have one person responsible. There is no perfect way to do it, but a keeper league definitely creates a lot more end of season trade headaches. Ideally, a non-biased outsider would rule on them. Good luck!

You could set-up a rule that an owner can only hold on to players that they originally drafted for the following year.

You could possibly have a minimum threshold. As in you must keep $X of players for the next season. This prevents teams from dealing away everyone and either keeping a huge bust or holding onto their studs.

I have played in this type of setup in my #1 Football & Baseball league. At 1st it seems like someone might have cheated you out of a title by doing a "Futures Trade". As the league gets used to it, things seem to work out. It becomes a part of your in season thinking to look for these kinds of opportunities whether you are looking for a title in the current year or the future. In fantasy i think Auction Keeper leagues are the best. You could consider a rule if your league head to head scoring that an eliminated team cannot trade with a contending team.
