We've spent the week upgrading the artificial intelligence engine that powers our auto-pick for drafts.

You should notice much smarter auto-picking from now on.

This same engine powers the in draft advisor as well, so you should also receive better advice during the draft.

Fleaflicker doesn't explicitly support an automated draft. At least one owner needs to be present for the draft to take place. However, if one owner signs on on during the live draft and sets his status to away, the computer will auto-pick for that owner and all owners that aren't present.

I would like to know how to set auto draft, my league has 12 teams, 3 of which players havent signed on to get yet. How do I set auto draft?

FleaFlicker still has the worst auto-pick of the several that I've used. It taints an otherwise great site. You need to address the problem of the heavy bias towards QBs. It's a lot less fun if you or your competition get stuck with a QB in the first round that normally wouldn't get drafted until round 5 or later.

Can someone in the know explain the logic behind the AI for the auto pick? I have a few players who will pre-ranking their players since they can't make the live draft and they have been asking questions about how the AI selects. I just kind of BS my way through it but one of their concerns is the way the mock draft seems to be QB heavy in the beginning and most people seem to select RB's early on. Is the AI QB heavy early on for the real live drafts?

You can pre-rank your players, and the AI will draft in that order. Unfortunately, you cannot set it to do: "If I get any of these RBs in Rd 1, then draft any of these QBs in Rd 2."

It would be nice if we were able to direct the auto pick to select a specific position off a teams player rankings in a certain round.

Im not sure, I have traded players around and I have too many leagues to keep up with. I meant in that post that in one league I got 4 total QBs and in another I got 7 total RB, it is fine in all my other leagues. I think I forgot to set my prerankings in both of those leagues anyway, and the drafts might even have been before you upgraded. I wouldnt worry about it though, if no one else is having problems. Sorry for any inconviniencies I have caused, You are still the number 1 fantasy football site on the web. I still say you need to add Baseball to it, that would be awesome
