I've had the same issues as we are transitioning our redraft league to a keeper for '09. I emailed Yahoo about keeper functionality and as of right now their answers have been very limiting. They said they are in the process of adding some options for keeper leagues but as of right now what shuhead said in his post is about all there is. You can have players placed on each team prior to the draft but each team does need to have the same amount of players kept. Possibly this is something Yahoo is looking into?
For our league, we are using Yahoo this coming year since it will be the first year of the keeper but depending on the keeper options in place at the end of the year, we may switch to CBS (which, I'm hearing, has more to offer in this case) or try to do it offline for 2010 when each team will now have keepers in place.
