I'm not sure I want to be in a league where the majority of the owners go by what the Yahoo rankings say.....
I've always said I wish Yahoo WOULND'T rank the players but instead just list them alphabetically so you are forced to bring your own rankings and you can't rely on a list there for you.
Yes I also wish Yahoo didn't rank players - it sometimes gets it he way of trades too, since the rankings are weighted for 5x5 and my buddies league never uses 5x5.
To me, it's not so much that people are drafting by Yahoo rankings, but that the default player list for online drafts goes by ranking. Someone could totally forget about a player, then midway through the draft when the top ranked players are greyed out, guess who the next blue name is..."Oh shoot I totally forgot about that guy!"
Now if the player was wayyyy down the list, the person drafting wouldn't have remembered the player, and I could take him later on as planned.
