Pre ranking problems on Yahoo?

Well, the prerankings dont exactly change....its just that yahoo sometimes ignores them during a draft. If you preranked 50 RPs for your top 50 players, it would take a few of them and then start taking other positions so that you can fill a whole team.

I'm confused, was this an autodraft league or a live draft?

Live draft but the manager in question pre ranked his keepers and wasnt on-line at the time.
He has accepted the trade for his original keeper after rejecting it 2 times.
He is now basically threatening to leave the league. His team finished 2nd last year and its a pity because he is a fun character to have around.
Oh well. Thanks for the info. Anymore would be welcome for the record.

If he was auto-drafting I wouldn't consider him a cheater. Yahoo autopicks can be very odd at times, jumping from position to position trying to fill out the roster. That being said if you have an established rule that he has to trade an illegal pick then there really isn't much to discuss.

This FA was picked up before all his pre ranked keepers had been selected.
Can Yahoo intervene before your pre selected keepers are all taken is the question. After his pre ranked keepers are taken then I agree Yahoo can do some funny things. But If Yahoo can change (not delete) my pre rankings (as he is claiming) then I'll have something to say about that.

Yes it can intervene before your preselected keepers are taken. I'm not saying that is what happened because I have no idea. But it it is a possibility.
