When DO Yahoo drafts take place?

Postby Spike » Wed Mar 19, 2003 9:40 am

I've signed up for one of the Rotisserie Yahoo leagues as I've never been in a rotisserie league and want the experience.

When I "signed up", I ranked my players and see that "Your team will be drafted by Mar 22".

My question: Is this when it will be drafted, or does it typically happen a few days before then?

Thanks.

Draft

Well, I set mine up 2 days ago, so I guess I missed the 24 hour window. ;-)

Do you get any sort of email notification that the team's been drafted?

are you doing an autopick draft or a manual draft at Yahoo? They have manual drafts all the time, and you can pick your time slot. I've never done an autopick draft, so I don't know how that works.

As I signed up for a rotisserie league, I wasn't given the choice of manual or auto drafting - I had to auto draft.

probably because you waited a little too long and there are no more times for live drafts.

I'm kind of new using YAHOO!, but I noticed one team drafted immediately after I set my rankings and clicked on 'ready'.

Another team I set up, and waited for a day and a half. I got frustrated, so I bailed out of that league and joined another public league. 15 minutes later I had a team drafted. My guess is your league is not filled. If you are impatient like me, try switching leagues.
