Welcome to the Auto League

Auto Leagues are seasons that last about two months, with 2 or 3 sims per day. Since this league is run with essentially no commissioner, there is a trade limit. Please be reasonable with your transactions, and report any bad owners using the feedback form.

League Status:
Season underway. Next sim around 6/4/2020 7:19 PM PT.

Draft Type:
Daily Draft

Owners Joined:
12 of 12

You can start ranking players for the draft as soon as you sign up! (The Draft link appears on the league homepage and your team page when you are signed in.)

Once the league fills, a draft round will run once every eight hours until all teams have 23 players. Once the draft is complete games will begin! Free agency opens after the first games. Please be sure to read the League Rules for further details!

This is NOT a keeper league, so once your team's season is over, you can stay in this league and re-draft next season, or quit and join a new Auto League.

When do games start?
After all teams have an owner and have drafted, the games will begin. You will get an email after the first game notifying you that the league has started.

What time are games played?
Barring any issues with the servers, games are auto-simmed 2 or 3 times a day, starting as early as 1:00am and ending as late as 11:00pm Pacific Time. Users can sim games from the My League List page every eight hours. This allows the league to keep moving if the server has issues or the participants in the league want to move the season along slightly faster than the auto sims allow. There will always be at least eight hours between games so managers can react if desired.

Can I customize my team?
Yes! You can change your team name, logo, and more via the "Owner Console" on your "My Team" page before the season begins and up until the 5th game of the season.

World Series and post-season
Division winners and three wild card reach the post-season. Owners can leave the league once their team is elimnated, or wait until the playoffs are over and re-draft the next season.

I'm always eager to here what you enjoy or think can be improved with the site, so stay in touch via the feedback form and follow site updates on the news & notes page.

Back to basketball strategy, the following is my impression.

I believe the correct strategy is mainly to concentrate on grabbing good defensive players with great rebounding skills and to have the best percentage shooters possible available that meet the first 2 requirements.There are a few players like Barkley and the Greek Strong Forward that are good at all these areas. Using on the front line players such as these with a Center like Jabbar,O'Neal or someone else who can shoot and rebound well it should be possible to win a large percentage of games. So far in my first 3 Leagues I have had Ron Harper and Ben Simmons and adding these 2 to my team has worked well though they do not have the 3 point skills of a Curry.

You could use Curry with some bruisers or you could grab players like Harper and Simmons and combine them with some multifaceted players like Barkley and Jabbar etc.,etc.,etc. and have a real Championship Contender.Be flexible and organized and things should go well.
