Note: If you're in a Keeper League, your draft isn't snaking because it's not supposed to. ESPN does this so your league members cannot improve their draft position by NOT taking keepers. In order to create a non-snaking snake draft, you must manually trade draft picks to create the order in which you want to draft for the next draft.
