Thanks John. Unfortunately because the functionality is just like the DL slot I had to come up with the system Like the DL, and correct me if I am wrong, once the player is no longer eligible for the N/A slot (i.e he is placed on a major league team) you have either put him on your roster or drop him.
If that is true then it does not work for us. We keep the control throughout the season not just until he gets promoted. The N/A system would not allow that.
I am the commissioner of a Roto keeper league. One of the rules for our league is you can have the exclusive rights to 5 minor league players during the season. You draft 5 minor league players at the start of the season and no other team can use them but you. These players were just on a list and we trusted the other owners to check that list before picking up any new players. That did not work out perfectly as players on an owner's list were picked up by other teams.
I thought the N/A slot was my savior but it was not. The N/A slot does not work for my league as once a player reaches the majors he can no longer use an N/A slot. Our rule is that you do not have to use the player so the N/A slot would have forced you to put him on your roster so that did not work for us.
So about two years ago I came up with an idea that has worked perfectly, “Prospect Teams”
A prospect team is a team in my league whose sole purpose is to hold our minor league players. I put all of the players that are in the Yahoo DB who were picked as minor leaguers onto the three prospect teams. If an owner wants to “call up” a minor leaguer they just email me and use my commish tools to make it happen. If they want to “send a player down” they let me know via email and, again, I make it happen.
This only works because we are a roto league. I can bench all of the players on the prospect teams and none of the teams gain any stats. The prospect teams end up being tied for the last three spots in the league every year.
If you think this type of thing can work for you and have questions just ask. All of the owners in my league are quite happy with it.

Robert, Walkoff59 and Martian
I believe the OP is literally saying run a pure roto league for 20 weeks.
Roto Into (ignore if you know this already)
So after a 20 week season in a 12 team league the team with the highest TOTAL Home Runs will be awarded 12 points, 2nd most 11, third most 10 and so on. This is done for all the categories in the league. The points awarded to each team are summed up and that is your total points.
Teams are ranked by total points and the team with the most points is declared the winner.
And we are back....
So in the OP's scenario if looks like you might have a 23 weeks season with the first 20 weeks being scored in a roto format. After those 20 weeks are done the standings are listed and the top 4/6 teams no go into a H2H format where instead of going against everyone in every category accumulating points you just go against one team with the winner advancing.
That is my take on it anyway. I had this idea a few years ago but hate H2H so i would not implement it myself but the idea is a decent one.
Are you talking about during the draft or just in life?

How does this interfere with Fantasy Football? Seriously?
Football is two days a week:you set your lineup at noon on Sunday and pickups on Tuesday everything else is just waiting... boooooooring.
