I know there has to be people who play fantasy sports at yahoo here...

Quick question, do they offer a slow live draft, you know, when the person picking has a longer period of time to make draft picks? 12 hours, 24 hours, etc...

I swear they used to have that option, and I commish a few leagues, but can't find it anywhere.

I'm thinking a slow live draft would be perfect for this season since we have no idea when the season will start, and it would keep league members engaged and excited..

The yahoo football draft I'm in is a slow draft, so I would think they would have one for baseball also.

That's a GREAT idea. I'd love to do something similar in my league. Unfortunately I'm only seeing settings that allow you to increase the draft pick selection time to a max of 2 minutes... Let us know if you find an option for this!

Yup, that is exactly what I am seeing too.

We normally do 1 minute 30 seconds and the only thing I see is to make it up to 2 minutes.
I emailed them, but I don't expect to hear back.

Yahoo does not offer a slow live draft format for baseball... This is the reply I got back, very informational and friendly, offering suggestions to do it but maybe a little too complicated for EVERYONE in the league to comprehend... I was impressed they got back to me so soon, and with helpful information...



Thank you for contacting Yahoo Sports. This is Bigcat from Buffalo, and I understand you want to know if there is an option for live slow drafts in Yahoo Fantasy.

Unfortunately, we do not offer this type of draft you are looking for. You would need to do this draft offline, mark down the results and then input them into our system using our offline draft tool. Another option that has been observed, is using an offline draft and marking the league as ready for the season, then allowing teams to add their players that they "draft" as free agents. So each team would use their allotted amount of time, select the player to add through free agency and then the next team would do the same until rosters are filled per league settings.

If you have any feedback or suggestions on how we can help improve Yahoo Sports, we'd love to hear from you! Visit our feedback forum to post your thoughts by going to https://yahoo.uservoice.com/forums/2061 ... y-baseball.

If you have any other questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me! Have a good day, and pleasant playing! Thank you for choosing Yahoo Fantasy Sports!

Thanks,

Bigcat
