What if I choose not to keep the maximum number of players allowed in my keeper league?
If an owner chooses not to keep the maximum number of players allowed, they will draft a new player from the available pool once all keepers have been retained. For example, assuming a four team league with a maximum of three keepers, where two owners choose not to keep three players, a straight (not snake) draft will occur as follows:

    1st round:

    Adam obtains first of three keepers

    Brian obtains first of two keepers

    Chris obtains first of three keepers

    Dave drafts a player from available player pool

    2nd round:

    Adam obtains second of three keepers

    Brian obtains second of two keepers

    Chris obtains second of three keepers

    Dave drafts player from available player pool

    3rd round:

    Adam obtains third of three keepers

    Brian drafts player from available player pool

    Chris obtains third of three keepers

    Dave drafts player from available player pool

    4th round (regular draft selections for all owners):

    Adam drafts player from available player pool

    Brian drafts player from available player pool

    Chris drafts player from available player pool

    Dave drafts player from available player pool

    5th Round (regular draft selections for all owners and snake format begins):

    Dave

    Chris

    Brian

    Adam

    etc.
