One manager did not return, and he deleted the team BEFORE finding a replacement manager. Now he found the replacement manager but the "choose your own keepers" function is, of course, not available to the new manager.
Through the history we know what the roster was last year, but how does the Commish assign the keepers?
Based on my experience I thought the commish can manually assign them before the draft?
Is this corrct?
So here is the deal with this situation.
Once the commish deletes a team, things get messier, but not impossible. There are two ways this can resolve itself once the replacement is in the league:
1) The commish can use the Edit Rosters tool to put the appropriate players on the team. This allows them to participate in the whole "Choose Your Keepers" process along with everyone else.
2) Ultimately, going through the whole "Choose Your Keepers" process just makes things a little easier for the commish when he sets up the custom draft order. He still has to do the draft order step to indicate where any kept players get slotted in. So you could, for example, do the keepers for that team offline, and at the point where the commish is slotting keeper players into the draft order, he can slot in the players that were determined offline. Make sense?
The deletion of the team is still unfortunate. It means things like the All-Time Record book can't know that team A from this year was actually Team B from last year (for that team). That is a situation we're thinking about a lot these days, and so it may change/improve going forward.
