Commish tools in CBS "slow draft"...need help fast....thanks

Postby misterf » Tue Mar 22, 2011 3:47 pm

Our league is currently running it's 1st "slow draft" on CBS.

I know that as commish I am able to turn on/off the autodraft option for each team (at the team owner's request, of course).

But is there any way for the commish to draft specific players on behalf of other owners.......or is it possible to edit the draft queue of other owner's before activating the autopick function.

(one owner's computer just failed catastrophically....he is on deck to pick.....he knows who he wants to pick......but neither option is at the top of his queue.....and it will be at least 24 hours before he will get internet access there any way we can make his pick promptly and still give him the player he wants?)


(i am considering pausing the draft......adding the player he wants using the commissioner's "drop/add" function for the league.....and then resuming the draft.......but I have no idea if it will work and I am worried that will cause an unrecoverable mess if I try it)

I don't think the add/drop idea would work. After you paused the draft, it would still be his turn. What would you do then? What about if he gives you his signon and password and you can sign on for him and make his pick
