Do you have an auto draft capability?

Yes.

The Auto Draft function allows users to have the system make picks for them in their live draft, based on their auto draft list.

Auto Draft Options

  • Off - Turn Auto Draft off. The user must select his/her players from the live draft board manually. If the league has a constraint on the time to make a pick, the user must select the desired player before the time is up or the selection will be skipped.
  • Instant - Allow Auto Draft to select the next player from your auto draft list as soon as it is your turn to pick. The user will not be manually making a pick in this instance, so fill out your auto draft list wisely. Two important notes about this mode: If your draft is running, you are currently up in the draft order, and you select Instant, the system will IMMEDIATELY make a pick for your team. Be sure to know the current state of your draft before you change to this mode. The system will first try to select a player from the user’s auto draft list in the order defined by the user. ONLY if the auto draft list is empty (i.e. all players crossed off) or does not exist will the system then fall back to the RTSports Draft Guide rankings to make a selection. If A) the user is at their roster limit or B) the user defined their own positional draft limits and the total max selection limit is less than the roster size or C) (salary cap leagues only) the user is at their salary cap limit, the user will NOT be skipped, rather you will still be on the clock and your auto draft mode will automatically be shut off.
  • Instant 1 Pick - This mode works the same as the Instant mode described above, however, it will only make 1 instant pick and then Auto Draft will be turned off. Also it is important to note that if you have any players in your auto draft queue when in this mode, the system will not fall back to the RTSports Draft Guide rankings if all your players have been selected and are crossed off.
  • Instant 2 Picks - This mode works the same as the Instant 1 Pick mode described above, however after making a pick it will change the mode to be Instant 1 Pick.
  • Fail-Safe - Not available if your draft does not have a time limit for selections. Allow Auto Draft to select the next player from my auto draft list only if I did not make a selection within the time limit for my draft. Fail-Safe mode is used when you believe you may not be able to get your pick in on time (due to internet connectivity problems, for example) and you do not want your turn to be skipped. If time expires in fail-safe mode the system will first try to select a player from the user’s auto draft list in the order defined by the user. ONLY if the auto draft list does not exist, will the system then fall back to the RTSports Draft Guide rankings to make a selection. There exist some scenarios where the user could still be skipped.
    1. The user is at their roster limit.
    2. The user defined their own positional draft limits and the total max selection limit is less than the roster size.
    3. Salary cap leagues only. The user is at their salary cap limit. In this case the user will be skipped until the next successful selection in the draft.

Auto Draft Roster Limits

If Auto Draft Instant or Fail-Safe function is used, an owner may set roster limits to avoid getting more players at a position than he wants. The Auto Draft Instant and Fail-Safe modes select players from the auto draft list in accordance with the roster composition limits set by the commissioner.

  Example: The commissioner has set maximum roster limits of:
    * QB - 4
    * RB - 6
    * WR - 6
    * TE - 4
    * K - 2
    * Def/ST - 2

The system will award the owner players from top to bottom of the auto draft list, if it can, based on these limits. The roster limit section allows the owner to set his own limits for the draft to ensure he only gets the number of players he wants at any position. In addition, an owner can choose to draft players based on your starting lineup composition.

Click on the Settings button at the bottom of the live draft board and set the desired custom limits and/or select to fill the starting lineup first. Then click “Save Settings”.
