QOTW: Determining Draft Order in Keeper Leagues

Question of the Week: I am doing a full team keeper league and am confused about how draft picks were ordered. Is there some way to go in and manually change it now or do i need to wait until closer to the draft?

Answer: For redraft and keeper leagues from the previous year, the draft order is determined by last season’s worst-to-first record from the regular season with two exceptions – the last team to draft is the league’s champion, and the second-to-last team to draft is the runner-up of the league.

QOTW: Opening Free Agency in 2017

Question of the Week: How do I open the player pool for waivers to run once a week and once a week only? Right now the draft hasn’t happened so all players are locked.

Answer: To open up free agency prior to your draft in a keeper league, you will need to go to League Settings > Edit Rosters, and select “These are complete rosters” in the bottom Keeper Options section. This will open up the player pool and you can adjust your waiver wire rules as needed.

To utilize your waiver system and have it run on the day of week you designate with no periods of first-come first-served free agency, make sure the League Settings > Edit Transaction Rules “Lock Free Agents During Preseason” setting is set to Yes.

QOTW: 2017 Draft Picks Missing

Question of the Week: I opened the player pool for the preseason and now my 2017 draft picks are missing. What happened?

Answer: When you open the player pool prior to the draft, the system thinks you have already drafted and therefore does not show you the 2017 draft picks. Don’t worry, though, they are still there! You will get them back fully intact when you switch back to the draft mode.

This will have some impact to owners who want to trade current season draft picks.

QOTW: All-Star Games Scheduling

Question of the Week: Is it possible to combine weeks on Fleaflicker given holiday shortened/all-star week?

Answer: In daily sports (MLB, NBA, and NHL), a short week may be combined with the next week only at the start or end of a season. (From the Owner’s Manual)

One thing that Commissioners can do is to remove match-ups for the week of the All-Star festivities altogether, so that it’s a “bye week” of sorts for the league. No fantasy games happen in your league that week, so no owners can be affected negatively. The Commish can make this adjustment by utilizing League Settings > Edit Regular Season Schedule.
