Not sure, me and my friends just draft our keepers in the first rounds of next year's draft then have a normal live draft. We do it on yahoo but there is no "keeper' feature on the site.

No you don't. Having a keeper where people come back will be very difficult just by doing a public league. There are always going to be dead teams over 1 season, just imagine asking them to come back for more seasons. My advice would be to go to the classifieds forum and try to get a nice keeper started over there.

Keeper leagues are best among a group of friends.... If you can't gather a group like that that will be committed, try and find an existing league where a player is dropping out and inherit his team.

My Keeper league is Yahoo, and you can set the draft so that the first picks, the keepers, happen automically, and then the draft continues live like normal.... this way, the number of keepers needs to be an even # so that the last place team will have the first pick.

I'd also recommend not having too many keepers, otherwise, dynasties can be created that are difficult to topple for years... in our 12 team leage with a 22 player roster, we've settled on six keepers per year.

We've also made a change this year to help out the bottom of the pack teams. Once keepers are named, from last place to first, the player has the option to switch one of his keepers for one of the players that weren't named as a keeper by the other teams. This way, a last place team with a weak keeper list can quickly upgrade his keepers before the draft.

I also like the 12 team 22 player roster format, because it means there are usually decent players on the available list.

did the yahoo thing ourselves. We assigned value to the keepers, then when one of your keepers came up in that round, you just selected that guy.

One big problem with that though, we had some guy not once, but twice pick someone else's keeper. And it got to be a pain to sort out. We made a rule that if you did it, you lost your pick that round.

Next year, I'm looking for something a little less ducttape and paperclips.
