Thank you everyone for all the great help and advice!!!
This sounds like it is gonna be alot of fun.

Is the running list that Yahoo keeps searchable, or can you only select a player by finding him on the list?

That practice draft idea sounds like a very good idea...
Take Care,
merc

Screw that. If I need my 90 seconds, I'm taking my 90 seconds. You guys just need to learn a little patience. I don't mind people taking the full time, IF the drafter is using it to make a pick.


I wasn't saying that you should never take the full amount of time to make a pick if absolutely necessary. I suggested not having a bunch of other things going on which would cause you to take extra time. It's been my experience in general that those who are knowledgeable and prepared for the draft don't need 90 seconds to make a pick. They are spending the time in between their picks studying their options and filling up their queues.

I'd suggest doing 3-4 of these and try it out, since it doesn't cost you anything and you can get some practice in seeing where certain guys go and getting use to the Yahoo draft system.

you could do that unless you don't feel like creating dead teams in multiple yahoo leagues :-t

You can't search, but you can change from Yahoo rankings to your own rankings or to alphabetical...so if you're having trouble finding someone just change it to alphabetical and you should have no trouble finding them.

Also remember to make sure you look down the list of players when thinking about your next picks because some players will slip your mind and may be under-ranked.
