In a keeper league you get to keep a predetermined number of players for next year. 6,8,10, etc. Depending on the league.

I don't believe that Yahoo offers keeper leagues. Not sure though. Maybe someone else knows for sure.

What about dynasty leagues? I've heard of those on here a few times before. Do you get to keep EVERY player, is that the idea? Does yahoo do those at all? Or does yahoo just do H2H?

You keep your whole roster from year to year in Dynasty leagues.

As to Yahoo--I don't know. I know I'm playing a roto non-keeper there this year. I know they offer H2H as well. Don't know anything about keepers or dynasty possibilities.

you need to find a solid commish ... he keeps everything put together during the offseason and then set's up the rosters and contact's the owners for the next season ..
A good commish is "Ironman" he runs a few different keeper leagues through Yahoo. I haven't heard from him here in the forum in a while but you could try and contact him through PM ..

Keeper league = keeping a few players till next season, this involves many different possibilities and usually means you keep from two to five players. Yahoo yes, but you need a good commish.

Career League= just like it sounds .. you keep the whole team till next year ..

Career Dynasty league= Just like a Career league, but you usually have minor league players and a true 40 man roster .. Yahoo cannot handle this, CBS sportsline does but they do such a sucky job that it almost isn't woth it.

Hope it helps ... :-)

Is there anyway to run a career dynasty league that IS worth it? Cuz that sounds like what I want to do. I consider myself very knowledgeable about the game but I have had no interest getting into minor league stuff and this would be a good excuse to do so. :-D
