I have a question regarding keeper leagues...

Postby Los_Dodgers » Tue May 30, 2006 2:26 am

First of all, how is it that players are kept? Is it just predetermined and so nobody can draft players who were on their teams for the first 4 rounds, for example? Or is it like a predetermined option that you choose while first making a league.
My 2nd question is how do you manage to join one?. I only use yahoo for FBB, and I look on available leagues every once in a while and they are very scarce. I have really looked forward to playing one, but can't manage to find one open with good, competitive managers.
If anyone could answer these questions for me I would really appreciate it, as I am genuinely curious and would like to pursue keeper leagues in the future.

1. You set the option in yahoo to "Offline draft". You then do a draft over AIM or YIM or a forum/message board type thing, and input the picks with the keepers.

2. There is no option to make or join a keeper league in yahoo, its kinda just made on its own. You set up a group or forum and kind of work the keeper league from there, whereas the actual stats of the league are on yahoo.

The first year is a draft of all players. The second year is when players are kept from your first year roster. Do it with people you know or try and find a league here at the Cafe: their is nothing worse than a keeper league with dead teams or inactive managers.
