Keeper League Draft Host?

Postby Fugetaboutit » Wed Feb 13, 2008 9:58 am

i am in the second year of a keeper league. We keep 2 players the year before in the round they were drafted in. Everybody will have a list of the keepers, but im worried that in the Yahoo draft room, somebody might pick one by mistake, then the rest of the draft will go into a tailspin. We are 100% using Yahoo this year, so a website change is out of the question, but I dont mind using another website, just to draft, then inputting the players in Yahoo.

My question, does anybody know any other sites that will...

a) allow me to input keepers for various rounds

or

b) be able to stop and go reverse picks (like CBS) just in case somebody screws up.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

I don't think it's unanswered because it's unread. I think it's unanswered because nobody has one.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

Last year in one of my drafts, we had someone auto-pick and he had not pre-ranked his players. The computer then started picking other teams keepers because they were highly ranked players. The way we overcame this problem was the team that had a keeper drafted by another team just drafted one of that teams keepers. After the draft, both teams dropped and picked up the correct players and the commish corrected the waiver priority.

Make sure every team pre-ranks before the draft and places their keepers 1-?? depending on how many keepers your league brings back. Then make sure to exclude every other teams keepers.

Hope this helps.

Has anyone tried ESPN? It looks like you can establish keepers before the draft...I just setup my league on ESPN that I normally run on Yahoo...it looks like ESPN is free, lets you have divisions, change the # of teams in the playoffs, setup keepers, etc...am I missing something?

I have checked out the ESPN interface, and you can plug in your keepers.

What I am not sure about is if you can plug in keepers to a specific round which happens to be my problem. let me know if anybody has a definitave answer. Thanks.

I'm in the same boat as you guys when I host the draft next season as we do 4 keepers and when you do keep a player he is moved up 3 rounds in the draft the following season from where you drafted him this year. So next year I will have to place players in keeper spots in certain rounds.

This is a great question and hope someone can help provide an answer.

The website "mockdraftcentral.com" has something that could work. You can host your league draft for 19.99. While im pretty sure it does not allow you to plug keepers into a specific round, it allows the commish to pause, and go backwards during the draft just in case somebody actually picks a keeper by accident. As long as the commish is on top of the keeper list, nothing can go wrong.

Still looking for a webpage where I can plug them in, but if not, I guess this will do.
