What is this new feature Keeper Players? Saw it in the Fantasy App

Keepers for entire roster is idiotic. Let's do cap it at 6. I would have AD, LBJ, Kawhi, Love, Griffin, Favors. lol

I don't know what this message is for keepers, but we are not doing a keeper league.

Buzzy, everyone is automatically renewed.

Any interest in an auction draft? Never done one of those before. Might not be good idea, as it would be tough to get a most of the league into a live draft. Dunno how autodraft would work for that

I believe auction drafts are more balanced for the league but on the other hand it's more fun watching Jao crush everybody with a superhero team. I'll pass my vote.

Hmm last year auto-drafting made me very competitive but not maintaining my team likely cost me the title. Food for thought.

To be fair, half of your auto-drafting luck can be attributed to having the #2 pick and getting the new basketball overlord.

Is it perhaps possible to find out the draft order like a couple of days in advance? I think in year's past we only knew it like a half hour before the draft, or am I missing something?

I'm changing waivers to continuous so everybody will have a fair chance at picking up players. Waivers will process on Sundays so you can get new players in for Monday lineups.

The current draft time is at 3 a.m. for me. I could have it 3 hours later and it would be all right, 6 am wake ups are fine for me.

From my recollection, one frustrating thing was weekly waivers given the scrubs on the WW in our deep league. I got bored with the inflexibility of streaming roster spots and picking up players.

No sarcasm. Exactly my thoughts. For an autodrafted team with a draft position greater than 10, his stuff is pretty good. Not enough to top the big guns in this league hehe

hey best commish eva.

is there a setting to ammend the waiver process? its cool having waivers for Sunday so everyone has a fair shot but after the once the waiver process is completed we should be able to add/drop fort that day (similar to fantasy football).

instead i have to wait until next week to make a move.

i can't even get a healthy PG on my roster (again) because i lost out on waivers.

So there's no way to temporarily allow free agents or have exceptions so the best I can do is add Saturday as a claim processing day so you can use Sunday as a second chance to add to your roster for the next week if you miss out on a player

I would highly suggest having second third fourth options on your waiver claims

really really dislike the new waiver system. it'd be better if it worked like that until saturday, and then the remaining players could be added like normal on sunday. but i doubt you can do that.
