Lol I'll go ahead and say as of now mine are Thomas Moreno and Manning
but if I can get a second round pick somehow I'd love to keep Marshall
Good point tho USAFSHELLAND on declarations in preseason, also going to be interesting to see how the nfl draft will incorporate into our draft strategies

Yes. This is exactly what we agreed on.
I also like the process that Eric mentioned.
After thinking about it, yes, it will be almost impossible to plan for keepers until you know what another manager is keeping, unless you are for sure locked in. (I for one am locked in unless I can get some kind of amazing trade). Maybe based on final REGULAR season games, the #1 team has to commit to keepers by x date, then the #2 team by x date, etc. So the benefit will go to the #12 team for planning out their keeper list (team whom finishes the worst in regular season).
We'd have to work on timing though... person A has until 12 hours after the final game of preseason week 4 to declare, person B 24 hours, person c 36 hours, etc. FINAL keeper declaration would take approximately 6 days from the end of preseason week 4, but I don't think it will actually take all 6 days to do so. Should you not declare a FINAL list of keepers during the week leading up to the draft, your INITIAL keeper list will be institutionalized for your team.
