Live drafts, email drafts, and manually importing your offline draft results.

What types of drafts does Fleaflicker offer?

Fleaflicker offers three types of drafts:

How is the draft order determined?

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.

Do I have to use a "snake" draft order?

No, keeper leagues have the option of "un-snaking" the draft.

How do I clear traded picks in our supplemental draft?

By default, your supplemental draft will have the same draft order as your initial draft. In order to change this, commissioners can go to League » Settings » Edit Draft Orderand use the Edit Rounds feature to customize any pick on the draft board for the new draft.

Can I mock draft on Fleaflicker?

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. You can locate the mock draft link via the Draft page below the draft board in the Pre-draft checklist section of the desktop and mobile web site.

Can I mock draft with a group of members or friends?

Yes. Share the website address from your mock draft. Anyone that visits that same page during the mock draft will be assigned a team in it.

Why is my league's mock draft starting in the wrong place or showing the wrong players?

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.

Can I redraft weekly on Fleaflicker?

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.

Can I run an autopick draft on Fleaflicker?

While we don't currently support the ability to directly schedule and run a draft in which the system automatically drafts for all teams, we do offer commissioners the following workaround:

When are rookies added to the player pool?

For NFL, NBA, and NHL, rookies are added within 24 hours of the time they selected in their league's entry draft.

How can I tell which players are rookies?

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.

How can our league set up a rookie draft?

Fleaflicker has full support for multiple drafts per season, including rookie drafts.

Can I limit the draft to a certain number of rounds?

Yes, go to League » Settings » Configure Draft and select the desired number of rounds.

Can owners draft players directly to the Taxi Squad or the IR?

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.

Do I get an extra draft pick if I don't keep the maximum number of players?

Yes. If you don't limit your draft to a certain number of rounds, drafts continue until all owners have filled their roster.

Why do my draft picks say they are unused?

Unused draft picks represent a team's keepers.

Why do we have missing draft picks?

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.)

Can I draft from my phone?

Yes, you can participate in either email or live drafts on any device by going to 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.

Can I get extra draft picks?

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.

Can I access the draft board during a live draft?

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.

Can commissioners add players to teams as the draft happens?

Yes! The easiest way to do this and preserve the draft results for historical reference is to schedule and run a live draft. At the start of the draft, the commish can select the pause button and then use Commish Draft to enter every pick. (The draft can be kept on pause the entire time so that there's no timer feature to worry about.)

Can a commish delete picks that represent certain keepers?

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.

How can I represent keepers on the draft board?

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.

Can the commish change the amount of time allotted to make a draft pick in a live draft?

Yes! This setting is located at League > Settings > Schedule a Live Draft. We allow you to set the timer as low as 30 seconds and all the way up to 15 minutes. Even if the draft has already been scheduled, the commissioner can go back to this setting and make an adjustment. Once the clock runs down, auto-draft will choose the player if the owner or commish does not.

Why do some owners have more draft picks than others?

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.)

Can I trade draft picks during 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.

Why can't I see this season's draft picks?

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

Can I undo a draft pick during an email 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.

Can I edit the roster settings in the middle of an email draft?

Yes, you can stop the email draft, edit your roster settings, and then restart the email draft:

Where can I view past draft history?

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.

Can I redo my draft (or hold multiple drafts in one 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.

Can I cancel a draft that is about to start or has already started?

Yes. Go to League » Settings » Stop & Cancel Draft.

Why do I not have any players on my team after the draft date and why does my draft keep getting rescheduled?

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.

How do I enter the live draft?

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.

What can I expect to see in future versions of the live draft software?

We are working on implementing fully automated drafts, auction support, draft data exporting, customized draft position (slot) in mock drafts, and many other enhancements.

Can two or more owners share the same computer in a live draft?

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.

Can I participate in multiple live drafts at the same time?

Yes, just open each draft in its own browser tab or window.

Can I take a break while using the live draft software

Yes, you can pause the draft and come back to the draft room whenever you'd like. Drafting will continue where you left off.

How will rosters be filled by the auto-draft if owners are absent?

Our auto-draft will fill the rosters of absentee owners based on the league's starting requirements.

Can I take my time while drafting or is there a time limit

Live drafts have a time limit but the commissioner can pause the draft to create untimed selections.

Can I rank my players before the draft?

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.

If I create custom rankings, will I also be able to see Fleaflicker's default rankings in my league?

No, this is why your rankings are not sortable when you use custom rankings. To see our rankings, you can view our Cheat Sheet.

What if I'll be absent for the draft? Can I have players picked for me based on my rankings?

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:

How do I change my live draft time and date?

Go to Draft » Schedule a Live Draft and select a new date from the calendar.

Why don't I see any future draft picks when proposing a trade?

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.

My league hasn't held its draft yet. Where is the link to the draft page?

You likely edited the rosters before the draft in a keeper league. To fix this, go to League » Settings » Add a Supplemental Draft.

What is an email draft?

An email draft is when owners sign on to the site and select players at their own pace through the players tab.

Can the commissioner select a player for another owner?

Yes, the commissioner can select a player for the owner on the clock by going to the players section and clicking Commish Draft

Can I trade during an email draft?

How do I change next year's number of draft picks that are shown on Picks pages?

Commissioners can adjust the number of draft picks shown and made available for trading in future seasons after this season's draft.

Can I skip a selection during the draft?

The best way is to edit your draft order before the draft starts.

My week 1 schedule is missing. How can I fix this?

If your league drafts after week 1 has already started, we skip that week by default.

Why does the draft board have gaps?

If a team finishes drafting early by filling all empty roster spots, their picks will be skipped.
