    Need to be able to test auto-drafting in a mock that only allows that. Also need to be able to mock without anyone being able to auto-draft.

    We've been playing and drafting live Independent Defensive Players for our league for years. Not sure why you can't. You probably have your draft settings wrong if this is what you want. Personally I can never go back to playing only team defense FF.

    There are people drafting for standard leagues, PPR leagues and 2 QB leagues. All of which require VERY different draft strategies. Now you jam them all in the same mock draft and the pick order gets very out of wack and becomes extremely unrealistic to what we'll see in our respective leagues.

    Example: Antonio Brown is projected this year at 359.84 points in 16 games with my league settings. When I save changes at mock draft start to my league settings he's projected at 258.68 points AND it doesn't matter IF I DON'T change to my league settings at start of mock he's STILL projected during draft at 258.68 points. Makes no sense whatsoever and it's NO HELP whatsoever Yahoo. Please fix?!

    Make options for Mock Drafts to match the leagues. This way we can get a better idea of when certain players are being picked in leagues with our position / scoring settings.

    Since Yahoo offers 2 QB PPR leagues, I think it would be a great idea to offer mock drafts in this format as well. Other sources I've used just seem slightly unrealistic. Why offer a format if there is no sample mock drafts? It just makes it harder to properly prepare.

  • kurt fischer commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Even though I select my custom league settings and save changes prior to mock draft the projected scoring for each player doesnt match my league during mock draft. So I'm drafting in the wrong order. So I have no confidence that it'll match during real online draft which forces me to pre-rank players which counters the new feature you guys are touting.

    None of my leagues run 3 wide receivers. They're all 2 RB 2 WR and one flex RB/WR. I'd love to be able practice my draft strategy for it, but I can't. Whyyyyyy?????

  • David Nguyen commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    **** Yahoo. They literally screwed me over today. Lost by 2.7 all because I started Blount instead of Melvin Gordon when Yahoo said Melvin Gordon was out today and was projected for 0.00 pts. I had Gordon in there all wk and up to the last minute at 11:59am I changed to Blount cause of yahoo. ********. Wouldve won if it was for yahoos false reports.

    1) add Options to the mock draft like IDP, PPR, Position Lineups
    2) Fix the Y! rankings so that they adapt to the scoring format selected.
    3) Set Auto Draft Picks by Position!!

    I would love to see this come to fruition! Our team loves the defense being such a crucial part of a teams success.
    PLEASE add this

    I believe you are asking for the wrong change. The mock draft app is just a generality and not custom to each leagues custom rules. As far as real "competative" drafts, they cannot be different from the mock draft simulator, and take into account hundreds of thousands of auto-pick leagues. If you eliminated filling the starting positions first before moving to the bench players, you could pick 3 bench QB's in a row, as it picks the highest ranked player available. Hence, your suggestion it messes with the algorithm to pick players for you, though it does bring to light a change that is viable

    What Yahoo! needs to do is offer what other sites have. That is a preference to what position you would like to draft in each round. It lists each round with a drop-down menu of positions you prefer to draft in this round. I believe some even have secondary position preferences. It picks your highes ranked of that position in each round that you suggest it to. In this option, you can tell your auto-pick that you do not want a Defense or Kicker until the final 2 rounds, and it will draft he best available in that round only. It also allows you to pick each other round. If you want 3 RB's in RD1-3, and not a QB until RD6 (but no later) you can make those preferences and it will auto pick it for you. Along with your pre-draft rankings, it can customize deeper into auto-picking a team you have more control choosing!

    Other sites are miles ahead of Yahoo! auto-pick options and pre-draft rankings regarding applying to the draft itself, and mock drafts.

    That is the suggestion that we are looking for people! Vote and suggest on a more specific and viable thread here:

    set you player rankings when i have to auto draft i take all the def and K out of the draft pool in my rankings

  • P K commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Autopick is supposed to be a tool of convenience, not strategy. It would be nice to have a tool to control auto pick logic like ESPN does (ie take a RB in round 1, a qb or te in round 8 etc), but to have a change to the default behavior doesn't make sense. It does stink that it ruins the integrity of mock drafts but it can't predict each owners behaviors.

  • Buzzy Newberry commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    It's an absolute JOKE that in there is no differentiation between PPR and standard in mock drafting. This should have been fixed YEARS AGO!
