Remove keepers from draft
Currently when drafting, regardless of where your keepers are, Yahoo shows your draft with no players and an empty team and does not show you keepers until that draft spot is up. Please start the draft by removing the picks already allotted to keepers and place the keepers on the team so we can develop a better draft strategy

When you first access the tool you're given the choice of random or custom draft order.
After selecting 'custom', you can choose to import traded draft picks.
Then set the basic order of the draft.
Last, you should see an option under the basic draft order feature (it's kinda small - single line of text) to add keepers to front back or custom draft entry.
After that, you can 'done, or 'continue'.
Once you approve keepers, and if you selected beginning/end of draft, the players will populate in the league under the 'Draft > Draft Results' option on the full website as a way to confirm, prior to the draft.

I just had to spend a freahing hour and a half manually entering every one of the 10 keepers on all 18 teams into draft slots... even though we followed all the directions precisely as instructed. The confirm keepers part is a totally useless step if Yahoo is not going to actually honor the selections each owner chooses if they are not then re-entered by the commisioner into draft slots in order to make them valid. That is the dumbest thing ever and totally annoying!!! Just make it so each team can select their keepers and then give commissioners a simple Preview All Teams Keepers Button so we can make sure it's what they wanted and then let us hit enter... don't make us have to manually confirm everything... I will never do this again and will take my entire league with me if Yahoo doesn;t change this ingnorant way of doing things. And stop getting hacked by Russians you A-holes!!!
