TR Keepers 2015

Wed Aug 05, 2015 6:53 pm

League has been renewed and Yahoo will send invites to all of last year's teams. Usual rules apply. I need keepers (3 per team) posted here by 31 August to give me a week to run pre-draft and get everything set for the live draft, which is Weds 9 September at 9:00 PM EDT / 01:00 Zulu (10 Sep).

Ugh, another year of hand-crufting Yahoo.

Just a reminder: You can mark your keepers in Yahoo (and should). Please keep posting them here so others know who's off the board for pre-draft.

Suppose I should figure out the draft order at some point, and how to make it so that #1 is #1 in Round 4.

I'll hold off on considering any of these as final until the announced drop dead date.

At least no one tried to make Geno Smith a keeper.

I've PM'd Damage and offered the open team spot to him. Hopefully we can get this done in time to not make a total hash of the season.

OK, Damage is just a wee bit too busy right now, so there's one open team. We really need someone to claim this team this week.

As luck would have it, one of my leagues fell through. Happy to accept the invite if it's still available. :)

Also, how's this work re: keepers? Does the new team owner get to choose keepers from the abandoned team?

PM me with an e-mail addy to which I can send the invite. You'll get to pick up to 3 from the abandoned team.

Invite accepted (and pretty dang stoked about my keeper options!).

Do I need to sacrifice any specific rounds of draft picks depending on who I choose to keep?

I am a eagles Fan so I do hope Murray kicks butt! But we have 2 other very good running backs and I do not think Murray will be able to keep up with the speed of Chip Kelley's super fast to the line offence. The running backs will rotate often bringing down Murrays FF points IMHO

Last call for keepers. If I don't see them here or in the Yahoo app by 8:00 AM EDT tomorrow, they're on the market. My life will be much easier if you do it in Yahoo.

OK, last last call for keepers, as I can't imagine anyone letting Tom Brady and Andrew Luck back into the draft pool. Teams are unlocked in Yahoo so go in and select your keepers.

There will be no pre-draft this year. I'll hand-cruft the Yahoo draft order to accomplish this.

I know it's a holiday weekend, but please get to this before draft night.

Sorry about the delay in response - haven't been online since joining any replying last night.

I'd like to keep Luck, A.J. Green, and Cobb - though I'm not seeing a way of doing so in the Yahoo interface.

Am I just missing something and being derpy?

In your team page, there is a tab called Keepers (small text at the very right)

Yeah, I expected something like that, but nothing there. (As a sanity check I even did Ctrl+F "keepers" on the page - nada other than the the league name.)

Yeah I'd spent quite a bit of time looking for it previously and did not see it on my page (and still do not).
