Live drafts, email drafts, and manually importing your offline draft results.
Fleaflicker offers three types of drafts:
Newly established leagues will have their draft order randomly generated. For redraft and keeper leagues from the previous year, the draft order is determined by last season's worst-to-first record from the regular season with two exceptions—the last team to draft is the league's champion, and the second-to-last team to draft is the runner-up of the league.
No, keeper leagues have the option of "un-snaking" the draft.
Yes, you can participate in a generic mock draft by clicking mock draft from the homepage or a league-specific mock draft from the draft tab of the league:
Draft » Live Draft Room » Try out a mock draft for this league!
Yes. Shre the website address from your mock draft. Anyone that visits that same page during the draft will be assigned a team in it.
If you enter a league mock draft and it's already in progress, someone else from your league may have started it. You can let it finish and then re-enter the room to start fresh. And if you are seeing keepers in the mix or the wrong roster requirements, this may be due to recent league updates made after the mock draft was started previously that are not yet being reflected. You can let it finish and then return to the mock draft room to start a fresh draft with the proper settings.
Yes, we do support weekly redrafts. After the previous week finalizes (Tuesday mornings for football), the commissioner can use
League » Settings » Clear Rosters to remove all of the players from each team. When this has been completed, the draft settings will appear and a redraft can be scheduled.
For NFL, NBA, and NHL, rookies are added within 24 hours of the time they selected in their league's entry draft.
Rookies can be easily spotted as they will have graduation cap icons next to their name during their first season. You will also notice that they don't have stats listed from previous seasons like returning players.
Fleaflicker has full support for multiple drafts per season, including rookie drafts.
Yes, go to
League » Settings » Configure Draft and select the desired number of rounds.
Commissioners can enable the draft to work this way by going to
League » Settings » Configure Draft » Count players on Injured Reserve/Taxi Squad and setting both or either options to No. These settings will only be seen if Taxi Squad and IR positions have been added to the roster requirements. If commissioners don't change the setting prior to the draft, the default experience is to treat intended Taxi Squad players like any other players.
Yes. If you don't limit your draft to a certain number of rounds, drafts continue until all owners have filled their roster.
Unused draft picks represent a team's keepers.
There are two things to check if draft picks are missing. First, in keeper leagues, go to
League » Settings » Configure Draft and check the Non-Keepers setting. It may need to be set to clear non-keepers prior to the start of the draft. (Don't worry, changing this setting won't immediately clear non-keepers; that will only happen manually prior to the start of an email draft or automatically within an hour prior to the start of a live draft.) Second, visit the Rosters page to see how many keepers each team has set, as this will impact each team's number of draft picks. (For every keeper that is set, that is one less draft pick.)
Yes, you can participate in either email or live drafts on any device by going to fleaflicker.com in your mobile web browser. Tablets have access to all live draft features, but keep in mind that the mobile interface has limited features due to screen size.
The system will only allow you to draft as many rounds as needed to fill each roster spot, so you can't have additional picks that would put you over the maximum roster size. If you trade for draft picks, this can allow you fill your roster sooner, but you won't receive additional picks beyond that.
Yes! To do this, navigate to your league's draft board:
League » Draft » Draft Board. You will need to keep this page open in a separate window during the draft. You can then refresh the draft board during the draft to see the updates as picks are made.
There's no way to place keepers on the draft board (yet) but commissioners can delete the draft pick that is assigned to the keeper. The owner will lose their pick in that round, and one will get added to the end of the draft so that they still get all of the picks they need to fill their roster.
Variations in the number of draft picks can occur as a result of pick trading or when owners have different numbers of keepers set. (For each keeper an owner has set, that is one less pick in the draft.)
You can trade draft picks during an email draft, but not during a live draft. We recommend commissioners use the
Commish Execute feature during the draft to expedite trade processing during the draft.
Your league may be in "post-draft" mode. To go back to "pre-draft" mode, the commish can add a supplemental draft
League » Settings » Add a Supplemental Draft
Yes! Commissioners should first make sure that all teams have their keepers set. This will prevent those players from being available in the player pool during the draft.
Yes, the owner who made the most recent pick can undo that selection by cutting the player from their roster. Go to your team's roster, and click the red
Cut button to undo the pick.
Yes, you can stop the email draft, edit your roster settings, and then restart the email draft:
You can view your league's past draft history at
Activity » Draft and select a season from the drop-down. Dynasty leagues may see more than one draft listed for a particular season.
Yes, if you need to redo your draft you can clear the rosters by going to
League » Settings » Clear Rosters. Then schedule a new draft date.
Yes. Go to
League » Settings » Stop & Cancel Draft.
Most likely no users signed into the draft. Fleaflicker doesn't explicitly support an automated draft. At least one owner needs to be present at the beginning of the draft for it to take place. However, if one owner signs on during the live draft and initiates it to start, the computer will auto-pick for that owner and all owners that aren't present.
You will go to the Draft tab on the navbar and when it's time to draft within 30 minutes, you'll see an
Enter Draft button in green.
Yes, the Fleaflicker live draft works on any device by going to fleaflicker.com in your mobile web browser. Tablets have access to all live draft features, but keep in mind that the mobile interface has limited features due to screen size.
You can use the Fleaflicker mobile apps to participate in email drafts which include notifications. However, live drafting via the apps is not an option at this time. (But we're working on it!)
Our live draft room is accessible from all modern browsers. If you're unable to connect to a live draft and your draft is in-progress, try using a different device or browser. If you contact us we probably won't reply in time for your draft. You can try a mock draft first to test your device.
We are working on implementing fully automated drafts, auction support, draft data exporting, customized draft position (slot) in mock drafts, and many other enhancements.
Two owners can share the same computer. Launch the draft as the first owner, then sign out and launch the new draft as the second owner. Repeat this step as many times as you need to.
Yes, just open each draft in its own browser tab or window.
Yes, you can pause the draft and come back to the draft room whenever you'd like. Drafting will continue where you left off.
Our auto-draft will fill the rosters of absentee owners based on the league's starting requirements.
Live drafts have a time limit but the commissioner can pause the draft to create untimed selections.
Yes, go to
Draft » Draft Ranking, then either drag and drop the players to your desired position or type in their rank. Click
Save when you are finished. When you enter the live draft room, players will appear in the specified order.
No, this is why your rankings are not sortable when you use custom rankings. To see our rankings, you can view our Cheat Sheet.
Yes, if you pre-rank your players they will either be selected for you based on the auto-draft option you select on that page:
Draft » Schedule a Live Draft and select a new date from the calendar.
Yes. You can edit or delete any pick in your draft.
Future draft picks may be traded in keeper leagues only. To change your league to a keeper league go to
League » Settings » Edit Keeper Rules. The length of the draft is determined by your league's roster size and number of keepers set (e.g., if a league has 15 total roster spots and an owner selects all 15 as keepers, the system will show no draft picks for that owner–their roster is already full). In general, a team has [roster size] - [number of selected keepers] draft picks.
You likely edited the rosters before the draft in a keeper league. To fix this, go to
League » Settings » Add a Supplemental Draft.
An email draft is when owners sign on to the site and select players at their own pace through the players tab.
Yes, the commissioner can select a player for the owner on the clock by going to the players section and clicking
Yes, you may trade draft picks and players during an email draft.
There is no way to configure time limits (we're working on it). But your league can impose informal limits to be enforced by the commissioner.
Your commissioner or co-commish can import your offline draft results into Fleaflicker. Go to
League » Settings » Import Rosters, enter the draft results for each team, and then save.
We don't currently show any ADP data but it's something we're working to add.
If you're conducting your draft offline and in-person, you can input the selections as you go:
Commissioners can adjust the number of draft picks shown and made available for trading in future seasons after this season's draft.
If your league drafts after week 1 has already started, we skip that week by default.
If a team finishes drafting early by filling all empty roster spots, their picks will be skipped.
