CBS online draft - WHIR

Postby misterf » Fri Mar 02, 2012 6:10 am

I have a question about the online draft with CBS.

It's a 10-team keeper league, and we had a live, in-person draft scheduled for this weekend. However, our live draft was canceled due to a funeral that several people in the league will be going to. It is also looking unlikely that we will be able to find another date that all....(or even almost all)....of team owners can attend a live draft. So it looks like an online draft for this season.

Here's the problem:

We have agreed to give one of the teams a supplemental draft pick between the 1st and 2nd round. This would have been no problem in a live draft, but I am not sure how to make this work in an on-line draft.


-Is anybody familiar with the CBS online draft set-up?
-Is it possible for the Commish to pause the draft mid-stream and manually add the supplemental pick before resuming the draft?
-Does anybody have any other suggestions re: how to manage a supplemental pick on an online draft?


Thanks in advance.....of course, WHIR.

You will get a faster answer by sending CBS an email. They will give you the correct answer.

It's probably too late, but I'm pretty sure that everyone needs to come out of the draft with the same number of players, so your draft picks need to be "even", e.g. you can't add a pick somewhere without giving one up somewhere else.

How did this turn out for you?
