ideas for turning in keepers


Recommended Posts

Surely there is a way or app to turn in your keepers to a central place and nobody can see them or access them until the deadline has passed.  Especially when you are making tough calls with guys who have different costs, it would be an advantage for somebody to be able to see who the people are turning in as keepers before making your own selections.  Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.

Our league they have to be posted on message board by day and time, usually its the Sunday night prior to the draft which is the following Saturday.  They are not "locked" until that deadline, so you can post mutliple versions - lots of trading actually happens involving teams who post early as people may see what guys they are not keeping and make offers involving minor league picks or players or 2 for 1 type deals.  Some owners dont post until the very last minute some post "fake" keepers to try and influence people to do certain things.

appreciate the responses. Currently they are turned in to commissioner so nobody else sees them but he does.  He's a trustworthy fella but at the end of the day, he will know more than anybody else about who's available and it would be hard not to tweak his own keepers - especially since they have different costs based on what round they were picked in.  If he had first pick for instance, he could not keep his best player knowing he would pick them with his first actual pick and lock up somebody else at a lower cost.  If he picks third, he might not do that for risk of losing that player .... unless he knows from the other turned in keepers that he's safe to do so.  

Just trying to keep it the same for everybody and figured there's got to be some sort of tech way to turn them in but not have them public until the deadline passes - but I am tech weak so I don't know what to look for and figured somebody here may be able to help.  Anybody else handle it similarly in their leagues?

Only way I can think of is an old fashion way. Everyone get together, write down their keepers, and turn them into the commissioner, who also wrote down his/her keepers. That way, no one knows who’s being kept until it’s time to reveal and everyone knows that the Commish doesn’t have a slight advantage over the other league members.
