Commissioner Corner Message Board

The first year there really is no difference. The only thing you really need to do is to inform your league that this is a first year of a keeper league. You do have to decide on some sort of structure for your keepers. For instance in my hockey league, we keep 8 (any player) Franchise players. We also have a mandatory goalie and defense. Plus we keep 3 years of rookies, the past 2 seasons plus this years rookie. One of the things I really like about keeper leagues is the annual Rookie Draft. I have a one round rookie draft every year, without this feature mangers can quickly lose interest. One of the biggest challenges is trying to keep somoene's interest in a team that is failing. Lets face it no one really likes to lose and devote time and effort into a team they see no hope for.
Thanks, and does yahoo fantasy has some sort of keeper features and settings? Anything? Or the whole season and everything you do in it is completely same as normal one year seasons? I mean can you somehow lock the players and teams for example? Or do you have to do everything manually next season. Invite everyone again, draft the last years keepers and then continue with draftin the new rookies? Or can you somehow transfer the players from last season to the new season and just have rookie draft? etc etc. Thanks a lot

Yes there is a whole bunch of keeper settings. Teams can select their own keepers and all you have to do is approve them. However I really prefer teams to post their keepers on the message board so I can view them and appove them. I like to manually input the keepers into the draft applet under commissioners tools. I prefer the manual control then relying on the system.
