    Shit. ESPN does crazy shit with their playoff system.

    It is only two rounds for the playoffs. I took that to mean two weeks.

    ESPN has it preset for two weeks per playoff round.

    Week one of the playoffs is 14-15
    Championship is 16-17

    When would the draft be? Would we have the option to live draft? I don't want random players

    honestly, not trying to be controversial, but what is the point in autodraft? its like rolling a dice and saying who wins. surely the skill is in the drafting?

    There is skill in setting your top 300 also, and fixing the screw ups via fa and trades also.

    I prefer a live auction draft but hey if it's a set snake auto so be it.

    yeah to an extent but it doesnt account for runs on certain positions or players falling lower than they should, which you can react to if you are doing it live. on autodraft your drafting position will be much more important than setting your top 300 because you can't react to changes. Like I said, I'll go with whatever, but an autodraft is pretty pointless, people can go autodraft on a live draft anyway so its the best of both worlds
