    I haven't either and tomorrow is a meeting and teaching day for me so I won't have a ton of internet time. 

    But yeah Yahoo and PPR are good with me!

    Just tagging @lyndausvi, @eileenrob, @atomicblonde, @kvruns so they see the link.

    The draft has to be done by 12am PST tomorrow so I set it for 8pm EST tomorrow but can change it.

    Tomorrow is my anniversary.  There is a chance I will not be available during that time.  It would be 6pm my time.

      Does Yahoo have an auto-draft option?  ESPN does.  I've never used Yahoo, so I'm not sure what their options are.






    What differentiates an average host and a great host is anticipating unexpressed needs and wants of their guests.  Just because the want/need is not expressed, doesn't mean it wouldn't be appreciated.

    Yahoo does have an autodraft option - @kimmiinthemitten would need to change the league draft type in league settings to autopick draft. 
  • I'm in now. My name defaulted to KVs phenomenal team? Lol

    If you don't log in for the draft it automatically auto drafts for you. Happy anniversary!  I was trying to pick a time that wasn't too early/late for everyone.

    Thank you Mr & Mrs Mitten!! I'm really psyched about our league!!

  • Is there anything we need to know for the draft? The league I was previously in we did a live draft not on computer so I'm not sure if there is anything to know - like does something pop up saying it is your turn ? If for some reason you didn't do it in time does it auto pick?

    Totally understand.  Not knocking anything.  Just bad timing.

    Although DH thinks he now has to work.  So I might be able to draft after all.    Might have to get a bottle of wine and celebrate with you all instead :tongue:

    We'll toast with you @lyndausvi.  

    @kvruns The draft is simple on Yahoo.  30 minutes before you'll get your draft position which is randomly selected.  I'll have to ask the hubs, but you get either 1 minute or 1.5 minutes to make your selection (you'll be notified when it's your turn).  If you step away for any reason, it will autodraft.  You can line up a que(sp?) of players you prefer and if you step away it will choose the highest rank player from that group.

    For example, the last draft I did was during work.  If I knew I wanted a RB for the next spot, I would que (sp?) the ones I liked in case I stepped away.

  • Thanks! That is good to know. I plan to be available for it but just in case the baby wakes up or something I wanted to make sure it would still draft. I'll look at setting up my queues
    sparklepants41
  • I'm going to set up my queues before the draft as well - Babypants has been clusterfeeding in the evenings here and there. Glad to know I won't be holding anything up if I step away from the draft

    Thanks for the explanation on how the turns/picking work.  I had been wondering about that.

    I've decided doing my line-up will be my lunchtime activity for the day.

  • I forgot that for whatever reason my work computer/internet does not work with yahoo.  Like it doesn't matter what part of yahoo, nothing works - it is like our internet service blocks all things yahoo (same thing happens on my phone if I'm on our work wifi). Made myself a reminder to try to figure out how to rank positions/players when I get home tonight. I couldn't figure it out on the app
  • We're on for 8:30 EST right?

    My other league is also on Yahoo. Unfortunately you can't rank your players on the app - so dumb - you can only do it on the full site. 

    Also thats so random that you cant access any part of Yahoo at work. 
  • Ohh I would love to talk some football too. I had my second draft last night, and I love to chat football!
