What do you guys do if you cannot make your live draft?

Postby .38 Special » Thu Mar 17, 2005 3:11 pm

Do you just let auto-draft take over, or do you have a friend draft for you? I might not be able to make my draft on Sunday and I am scared about letting auto-draft pick for me.

I always make my draft, but in cases for other people, they usually have a sub. We don't autodraft.
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.

I pre-rank and allow the autodraft to go to work. It's been effective a few time and bit me a few times. :-o

I suppose that you are talking about a live Yahoo draft?? I would rather just pre-rank and let Yahoo do it. :-o

I have to let my team autodraft for a pay league (:-o :-o) so I'm in the same boat as you. I think pre-ranking is a must in case you can't find a worthy sub (anyone can draft for you, but can they draft well?).

Sometimes those autodrafts work to your benefit, since usually the picks are devoid of too much hype. Last year I got 2nd place with a team I autodrafted and barely traded for. It could work out... or at least, I'm hoping it does for me!
