  1. Pre-draft Rankings / Position drafting each round

    I suggest you allow teams to choose which positions they want to draft during each draft round in the pre-edit. This would allow closer control of not drafting multiple players in postions (ie only 2 QBs, not 4 TEs, etc.) When all positions can be drafted each round, the only control you have is the ranking itself. But when a players ranks 3QBs together hoping to get at least one of them, they don't want all 3.

  2. Allow users to set preferences for auto-draft

    Allow users a long list of preferences for auto-draft. For example, when setting my custom pre-draft rankings, let me say that I don’t want a certain player or position to be drafted before a certain round. NFL.com offers this.

  3. Auto Draft Position settings

    Allow for setting of which positions I want drafted in which round for auto draft. If I don't want a QB until round 6 or a K until round 15 it would be great to be able to specify this. For example: Rd1: RB, Rd2: RB/WR, Rd3: RB/WR, etc

  4. Improve Auto-Draft

    I have a number of simple suggestions to improve auto-draft. Obviously, the prevailing strategy for standard leagues is to load up on WR and RB and generally carry only one of every other position. Also, it's a waste to use an 8th or 9th round pick on a K or D instead of high upside bench RB/WR stashes.

    So I propose the following auto-draft settings:
    1. Allow users to select the max number of players that auto-draft will select for each position group (ex. max 1 D, 2 QB, etc.)
    2. Allow users to set…

  5. auto draft ****

    My auto draft was completed yesterday. I had moved all TE's and Kickers to my do not draft list as I find these positions easy to fill from waivers after the draft. Yahoo instaed insists on filling my TE position in the 8th round with Anthony Denham (Phi - TE), bet you don't know who he is either!!!!!! I had checked yesterday to make sure there were no TE's left that I had not put on my do not draft list, there were none but yet I get this stiff in the 8th round!!! Then to boot,…

    Thank you for your feedback. I will pass this along to our Product team for future consideration.

  7. Let us have an option to take more time on our picks for private leagues. Say maybe upto 10 minutes .

    We have 8 guys inour league and only 7 of us get together for the draft. So I usually enter the picks as we are drafting but I need to call the other guy and explain who has been taken and who is still available which takes a lot of time. It is impossible for the out of town guy to get his pick in if he is limited to 90 seconds. We take about 5 minutes on our picks and it would be nice to give the out of town guy that same option.

  8. AUTO DRAFT TOOK A KICKER IN THE 8TH ROUND!!!

    Auto draft should take kickers in the LAST round automatically. How is it possible that all the advice columns all advocate taking a kicker last, but the autodraft takes them in the middle of the draft?!

    Auto-draft will select players to help fill your roster. You can set your pre-draft rankings, for players you want selected first.

  9. Manual Playoff Seeding for Each Round

    Our league is considering a rule change to do manual seeding of the playoffs this year for each round as we want to allow the highest seed in each round to pick their opponents of that specific round.

    1) 3 Seed picks between 4-6 for first round
    2) 1 Seed picks between the two winners of the first round

  10. Allow for customization of the waiver wire positions for live drafts to start the season.

    It is unfair to automatically apply waiver positions to a league who drafts live because the 10th pick in a snake draft this year was placed on the waiver wire in the 10 position to start the season. It is only fair that the last pick in a live draft start the season 1st on the waiver!

  11. In the draft app, keepers should be indicated on the "upcoming picks" timeline.

    In the draft app, picks occupied by keepers should be indicated on the "upcoming picks" timeline. And when it says "3 picks until your next pick", that should mean 3 actual picks, not 3 picks OR keeps. For instance, if the first pick of the round is on the clock, there is a player being kept at the 2nd spot in the round, and I have the 3rd pick of the round, it should say "You are picking next".

  12. Option for keepers to not be applied in a round during the draft

    in a league where draft picks are traded it gets screwed up because keepers are applied either in the first couple of rounds or the last couple. This in turn screws up the draft order. if i traded my first pick of the draft but my keeper is applied there it doesn't draft in order correctly. keepers should have the option to be applied simply before or after the draft is finished.

  13. In "Mock Drafts", there are 16 slots for players, but only 15 rounds to the draft.

  14. Allow trades during live drafts, allow picks and/or players to be traded.

    Trades during live drafts, trade picks..example I will give you my 1st for your 3rd and 4th. Also, allow players to be traded during live drafts, example Dang, you picked Rodgers, I will trade you Murray and Fitz for him plus your 6th rd pick...

  15. Draft picks time limit

    It would be nice if we could edit pick time limits by round. For example the current maximum of 2 minutes per round is far to quick for the first four or so rounds. I’d like to be able to make the first 4 rounds 5 minute time limits, and then 2 minutes for the final rounds. Could we get this done by 10am tomorrow haha?

    Ambitious with the turn around time! Unfortunately, that won’t be possible but we appreciate the feedback and could look into this further.

  16. More servers for online draft and better auto draft IQ for keeper leagues

    I run a keeper league where we keep a player for each starting position. First half of the coaches are in one household and we were unable to all log in and draft at the same time, the lag was too much. Second, when I looked the final results, each team now has 2 kickers and a second person for each defensive position, what a waste.

  17. Draft Central!

    Is it possible to only have a auto pick draft only & a regular draft pick only in draft central!? It dosen't serve the purpose if people just auto pick all the time!

  18. Stop allowing back to back auto drafters, ruins drafts!!!!

    Its not realistic , no one is going to the highest rated yahoo player every single round of the draft regardless of postion. Auto drafters distorts when you should draft what and when. Time out anyone that autodrafts 2-3 times in a row. People want to to draft with people not bots.

    Hello Eric,

    We appreciate you taking time to leave feedback.

    Auto draft works the same in mock drafts as it will in an actual draft for a league if managers cannot make the draft.

    All starter positions are filled before bench positions.

    You can’t designate which round a player is picked or a position is filled.
    Each round, autopick drafts the highest-ranked (pre-rank, then default rank) available player based on your position needs.

    The system determines a max number of players to positions ratio, including bench, so that your roster positions are balanced.

    Your feedback has been provided to our product team.

    Thanks,

    Product Support

  20. Auto Draft - Show which players were auto drafted by which team

    Our league requires an additional fee if you auto draft. There is no way to tell post draft if a player or team was auto drafted. I get that an Auto draft logo will appear next to their team name but if they go the full allotted draft time, yahoo drafts for the team.
