Keeper Leagues

Keeper Rules for League Manager Leagues Only

  • In a keeper league you are allowed to retain as few players or as many players as the league manager selects, from the previous season, to remain on your roster for the upcoming season
  • When creating your League Manager league, simply select keepers in the settings
  • In a Keeper League, the draft will vary based on how many players you're allowed to keep for the upcoming season, assigning one draft round for each keeper
  • If your league has three keepers, there will be three keeper rounds
  • Keepers will always be the first rounds of the draft
  • For a new team, that owner would receive a pick in each of those three rounds choosing any players they want from those that are still available
