How will the system select a player to auto draft?
There are two ways the system will make an auto draft for a team:
Team Auto Draft set to **Instant**
If the team's turn comes up and their setting is Instant, Auto Draft will instantly select a player for this team. If a team's turn is up and its owner changes the setting to Instant, Auto Draft will immediately select a player for this team
Team's time to make a pick expires without one being made
If a team fails to make a pick in the allotted time, Auto Draft will select a player for this team when the count down clock reaches zero.
Auto Draft uses the following steps to draft for the team
If the team has any players in their auto draft list, Auto Draft will start at the top of the list and select the first undrafted player from the list. If this player fits all the league's roster constraints and the team's auto draft constraints, he will be drafted.
If the team has no players in their auto draft list or if all players in their auto draft list have been selected already, Auto Draft will fall back to the RealTime Fantasy Sports player rankings. Auto draft will start at the top of this Top 300 and select the first available player that fits the league's roster constraints and the team auto draft constraints.
If all the players on the RealTime Fantasy Sports player rankings list have been selected already drafted, the auto draft will select the first available player from the entire list of available players beginning alphabetically alphabetically. This would is extremely rare.
