TR Keepers 2016

Mon Aug 08, 2016 7:09 pm

After the debacle of the Hall of Fame Game, it's time to get this thing going again. League is renewed and e-mails sent by Yahoo. Last years rosters are loaded and keeper declarations are due August 30. These can be done in Yahoo. Draft is September 6 at 9:30 PM EDT, with pre-draft happening in the intervening week. Any team that wants to drop should PM me soonest so I can get someone else to take it over.

IOW, SS, DY.

Wouldn't hurt, as I'm not sure they're visible to others in Yahoo.

Can I confirm that everyone in Keepers last year has received the renewal e-mail and has logged into their team, please? Seems like Yahoo has taken to assuming that if the renewal e-mail didn't bounce the team was successfully renewed, meaning mayhem on draft night.

Yahoo has to change something every year to make it ever harder to keep things straight.

OK folks, draft is in 16 days and this cockamamie new Yahoo system presumes you've re-upped because your e-mail didn't bounce. We've got 10 teams and I've heard from two. I really need the seven other managers to ping me here to make sure this is actually working (mainly because of Yahoo).

EDIT: Rant sent through Yahoo.

Well, at least this year Romo made it official before it hit the standings.

OK, I can now see who kept keepers. I'll post pre-draft order and slots tomorrow morning. It'll be last year's playoff standings (1-8) and the final regular season standings of 9-10 in the usual snake pattern starting from #10. I've poked around, but as in past years I see no way to restart the snake order in the live draft for Round 4 from #1 to #10.

Last years standings (in draft pick order, with number of pre-draft picks):

Bucketheads - 0
Fumblerooski - 3
DenverPaytons (now SanchizeSiemianLynch) - 1
The Wesley Crushers - 2
Captain's Keepers - 0
The Enabled List - 3
STIFFIE - 1
Purple Jesus Juice - 0
Ospreys - 1
EvenWorseNewsLions - 3

Pre-draft order:

Round 1

Fumblerooski
The Enabled List

Round 2

The Enabled List
The Wesley Crushers
Fumblerooski

Round 3

Fumblerooski
SanchezSiemianLynch
The Wesley Crushers

Ian/STIFFIE, I'm presuming you will continue to be PRIME1's voice in this mess, no?

Matt: You're on the clock.

EDIT: PRIME1 got me his keepers (Matt Stafford& Allen Robinson). Draft order amended.

As an aside, should we change to either 2 or 4 keepers next year, as that will preserve the draft order and be less of a headache?

Sorry about the delay, but how do I even see who is available to draft?  I don't think we can see the keepers or anything until the live draft.  At least I can't figure out how.

Joy. Yahoo has gone and made everything more difficult yet again.

My hope is that I can plunk in the keepers that have been announced into the draft order and that when we go live, the "pre-draft" slots will get filled as in a regular draft.

I've been invited to an ESPN league this year; if that experience is any better than Yahoo I'll think about moving there next year.

EDIT: I just set the order (please tell me when you're changing your team name) and assigned the keepers, and Yahoo didn't barf on there not being full keeper rounds. Cross our fingers and hope it works like this.
