Step 1: You run the values of all hitters/pitchers as if there are no keepers. Say the sum is $1000.
Step 2: For those players who are keepers, exchange their values in Step 1 for their keeper values. Your total sum of all players in Step 2 is now, say $900.
Step 3: For those players who are not keepers, you now need to evenly inflate the players who are not keepers a certain percentage, which will be HIGHER than ($1000/$900) because you are not inflating the keepers. You will have to play with that percentage so that total value of all players (keepers and non-keepers) equal $1000.
