yahoo keeper league settings..

Postby lacunacoiler » Wed Jul 22, 2009 5:13 am

im still new to this keeper league concept though so i need some help about a few things...

im planning to start a keeper league, maybe 10 or 12 team h2h league, & im planning to change the amount of keepers for each year.. like 3 keepers for 1st year, 4 on 2nd year, 5 on 3rd, & 7 on 4th year & beyond years..

so is this possible that you can change the amount of keepers each year as a commish??? and what about draft picks, can you trade them too???

Right now the way keepers are designated is that the commish creates a custom draft order, and pre-slots the keepers in place of some of the picks. As such, the commish can have any number of keepers for any team in any season. It is a bit more work for the commish, but gives maximum flexibility to accomodate varying keeper rules.

Similarly, the commish can associate a cost/value with any or all keeper players if that is useful to the league.

Trading draft picks. On "the list". We'd like to support that, but don't yet. It also introduces some funny business that needs to be dealt with; what if you don't trade any of your picks, but get back 5 new ones? Now you might have 20 draft picks in a league with 15 roster spots, for example. That being said, if your league handles the trading of draft picks offline, the custom draft tool gives the commish a lot of flexibility to deal with that, as long as he has worked otu the funny business. Really the only rule the custom draft order tool enforces is that when the dust clears every team has to have the same number of picks (some of which may be pre-picked with a keeper player).

Hope this helps...

another question: in a keeper league, can you increase the number of teams after the season or you cant & your just stuck with the number of teams you have set during the creation of the league?
