any chance this is something that can be added? if we wanted a non historical basketball league, its kind of tedious to create every single player from scratch

Import Random Players is the best option at the time, but I realize that doesn't give you great control of the scope of talent that gets created.

It is of course a possible future enhancement, there is just such little demand for basketball at the moment it's lower on the list.

Yeah but it’s virtually impossible to run a fantasy league without this tool. There will pretty much only be historical leagues without this tool

Import random players is not much different than generating fake players if you rename them as that feature allows. It's actually better IMO because it's randomly creating stats that actually happened instead of fake stats that could be unlikely to ever occur.

thank you i tried and yo are right, that does look workable. however a few points:

1. i had "create fictional names" checked off and it still imported real players
2. would it be possible to set a range of DWS and OWS so that i can be more in control of the kind of players in the league? when i imported "random" players it mostly imported absolute superstars

Thanks... I can't reproduce either of those issues. (I do see that it keeps the year, so I can fix that...) But, I do think having some control over the pool would be a helpful feature!

I fixed the stats year issue so fictional players will now have current year listed as stats year. I am not seeing the issue you saw with only studs getting imported.
