How to Pre-Draft.

First you need to log into your league home page.
Then go to "For Owners" and click on "My Draft List". Once you have your draft list compiled and saved go to the "For Owners" and click on "My Draft Preferences".

Another option other then what is listed below is to go to "For Owners" then click on "Draft". However this option is not preferred unless you only plan on setting up your pre-draft for the first round or two.
This option however is preferred when you need to set up the system to draft for you at the end of a draft if you do not plan on being there for the full draft.

My Draft List:

Edit Mode

The default "Edit" mode allows owners the ability to add/remove/re-order player for their unique "My Draft" list.  See also "View Mode" below.

Available Players - This window displays the initial player list.  By default, players appear ordered by the MyFantasyLeague.com Draft Tracker results.  Alternately, click on the Alphabetical link to have these same players sorted alphabetically by last name.

Current My Draft List - This window displays the current My Draft List for the franchise.

Action Items - These are the various controls available on this screen

Add All To List - Click on this button to take the entire list found in the Available Players window and transfer it to the Current My Draft List window.

Add To List - Highlight a single player from the Available Players window and click this button to transfer him alone to the Current My Draft List window.

Remove From List - Highlight a single player from the Current My Draft List window and click this button to transfer him alone back to the Available Players window.

Remove All From List - Click on this button to take the entire list found in the Current My Draft List window and transfer it back to the window Available Players.

 

Move Up - Highlight a single player from the Current My Draft List window and click this button to advance this player by one position (for each click) in the list.

Move Down - Highlight a single player from the Current My Draft List window and click this button to drop this player down by one position (for each click) in the list.

When finished, you MUST click on the Save My Draft List button in order to apply your changes.

View Mode

Click on the "View" link to instead see a read-only display of the currently ordered "My Draft" list, complete with the data listed below.  See also "Edit Mode" above.

# - The current rank of the player (only relevant when the list is filtered by position).

Ovr - The overall rank of the player (more useful when filtered by position).

Player - The name, team and position of each player in the list.

Bye - The bye week for the player's pro team.

Show Only - Use this filter to change from the default of "All" to instead display only a single position at a time.  You must click on the Now! button to trigger the regeneration of the list.

Use With An Online Draft

Email (slow) Draft - The For Owners > Draft page (when it's that owner's turn to pick) will by default show the owner their own "My Draft List" player listing for them to make their draft pick from, but they may change back to the alphabetical player listing as needed.

Live (fast) Draft - The Live Draft Chat room will by default show the owner their own "My Draft List" player listing for them to make their draft pick from, but they may change back to the alphabetical player listing as needed.

ADDITIONAL NOTES:

1. This feature does not in any way change how Pre-Draft picks are applied. In other words, pre-draft picks are still applied for an owner as soon as he's on the clock. If an owner would like picks to be applied only if his pick times out, he should use the "My Draft List" player listing.

2.  Like the Draft Tracker logic, the "My Draft List" picks give highest priority to filling a starting lineup before trying to get bench players for a given franchise. In other words, if your league requires 2 starting RBs, and a franchise already has 2 RBs on it's roster, the system will look through the "My Draft List" player listing, looking for the first available non-RB on that list before selecting a player.

 

My Draft Preferences:

For leagues that conduct their online draft, and owners that rely on the system to pick a roster (via either the my draft list player list, or the draft tracker player list), this  option will give owners more control over what position is picked in each round of your draft. This will give owners a lot more control, preventing the system from selecting too many backup players in any one position.

Draft Rounds - A list of current rounds in the draft.  This requires that the draft order be defined.

Position Requested - Specify "Any" (the default) or an individual position.  This will force the system to use the highest rated available player at this position, regardless of other, higher rated players at other positions.

When finished, you MUST click on the Save My Draft Preferences button in order to apply your changes.
