Draft Question


Draft Question

Anyone know how to do a draft so that players in the draft pool do not have a "player ranking"?

Re: Draft Question

I don't, but why would you want to do that?

Re: Re: Draft Question

So owners would have to do a little more research in their draft prep, rather than just drafting the highest ranked player.

Re: Draft Question

When you create the rookies they won't have a ranking until you adjust stats level. Anytime i have created a rookie draft class all the rankings say 0 until i have gone in and adjusted the stats level.

Re: Re: Draft Question

I don't think a "Rookie Class" was all he was talking about, I think he meant the entire Player Pool.

Research alone will not usually determine how high a players Rank will be and that is really the best way to Guess (no guarantee)of how he will perform-especially if Season switching is allowed.


I don't think the idea is feasible but I am admittedly not the most experienced guy.

Re: Draft Question

He wants to go back to the old way of doing it, so people don’t just rely on the rank when they are drafting.
It was much better . (In my opinion) (that doesn’t matter tho bcuz all teams are playing with same rules)...and bcuz it’s just an opinion


By doing research you are able to identify who outperforms their rank on a regular basis
That always helps in crunch time (when free agency hits etc)

Re: Re: Draft Question

Yes Colin, I was looking for a way so owners wouldn't simply rely on rank to do their drafting.

Re: Draft Question

For your original question, I assume you have a custom league that you’re asking how/if you can eliminate the Rank feature.
You need to ask Yankee or Jay for that, they are certainly experts in the nuances of custom leagues

Re: Re: Draft Question

Dont think you can. But that's why rank is there, for the lazy who dont want to look at the overall numbers. Those people will be in your league regardless, so at least they are using something.

I know rank serves a purpose for others too, just saying, that's why it's there.
