  • The only thing I hate about yahoo's drafting system is that it seems to enjoy drafting kickers in the 10th for some inexplicable reason.

    I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

    • When people bail (usually around that round), auto draft takes the highest rated player/unit at whatever position the drafter didn't fill. Most of the time, that's K/DEF.

        Fair enough I guess, but I just wish there was a way to tell yahoo to restrict the K and DEF positions to a certain round...

          There is - you can either manually set your board or stay with the draft til the end.

            I think he means for the cpus who take over when people bail.

            If not, then yeah, manually setting the board would work.

              I don't know why people would bail on a draft and let computer pick players for you

                Neither. It can not only ruins things for you, it can ruin things for the rest of the league. The issue is even more pronounced in auction leagues. In those it becomes way too easy to make the auto-picking teams draft all the Shonn Greenes of the world.

                  I could have this all wrong, but I think Toadofsteel is talking about the mock drafts on Yahoo, where people bail after the 4th round.

                  If people are bailing in real drafts, then they're idiots.

                      Ah, I sort of went off on a tangent there... Yes, that is definitely an irritant in mocks as it means you don't get any sort of sense of how people are picking in the late rounds.

                      Nope. Is this generally what occurs?

                        Haha, I was gonna ask you the same thing. I haven't done any either. I wanted to do a few last year, but I never got around to it.

                        I plan on doing a few this year, and have already started up an auction league on another MB. I'll probably join a couple Yahoo Pro20 ones, just to get the hand of them.
