Genie and all of you have been very kind in walking me through some keeper questions but I have a two other questions. I have been maded assistant commish in one league
I have approved the keepers, i go and select "Custom Order and Keeper Player Leagues" but i cannot check the "import traded draft picks from last season"
So I go and view the traded draft picks and the next tells me that "The Commish has not processed traded draft picks for the current season"Where do I do that?
One thing that might help Genie: The Real commish deleted a team rather than reassign it and so i read that "If you remove a team from the league that had traded picks in the previous season, we cannot import the picks" is that why I am having problems? Any way around it? ID=33268
Then,Once I have done that i was going to assign the keepers to each team, however i have a doubt. We have 4 keepers each. If I assign these keepers in the first four rounds does this affect the "traded rounds" or does a trade last season of "next year's first round pick" in reality end up being the "fifth round pick" because the first four rounds are keeper assignments?
I hope I made myself clear
Running out the door, but some quick answers:
- Yes. If a team traded picks, and was deleted and recreated rather than being renewed/reinvited, that is your problem. Bad news. You could fix it on your own, but it would be a big pain: if you deleted the league, re-renew it, and do it right, you'll be fine. You could reach out to customer care, and they might be able to help you; not sure on that one. But yes; deleting a team that had traded picks is a definite problem. Hence the warnings.
- If I understand your question, let me give you a concrete example. If you allowed trading draft picks, a team might have 2 picks in the first round and no picks in the last round (for example). Your league/commish need to have a policy for how you are going to assign keepers into the draft. You are certainly able to put them into the first 4 picks each team has. If you do so, the team with the 2 first round picks will almost surely be unhappy, because what is supposed to be a balanced process of 4 keepers per team will hurt them more than other teams. If you put them into the last 4 picks each team has, that will benefit that team slightly. Nevertheless, that is how my personal league operates. You could instead have a rule that says, "You can't trade picks in the first/last 4 rounds, because that is where we're going to put all the keepers". But if you didn't do that last year, it isn't really an option now. Bottom line: you can look at exactly who is going to pick where. If you put keepers in any pick, then it is just like the team picked the player there, and that has ramifications. It sounds like you understand the pros and cons, you just need to decide how your league is doing thing.
