Hi KS. Draft Buddy will certainly track this for you. There are two ways to include this in Buddy:


1. rules tab, input max keepers and check off "keepers cost a draft pick"... Compile Cheatsheets for the keepers tab to appear... when you input a kept player, then in the yellow highlighted cell to the right of the player, click and use the drop-down to select the pick given up... this should copy the player directly on your draft report tab, mark him off the cheatsheets and add him to rosters tab


2. skip the keepers tab and input the player directly on the draft report tab next to the pick given up to keep that player... same result, marks him off cheatsheets and adds to rosters tab

Nice work. And to reply to your previous post, yes, I definitely recommend some pre-draft trial runs to test things out. Have a great season!

Try that out and let me know if you have any questions.

I found this in my email to someone last year who had a 5 round auction, 20 round pick draft...


1. On the rules tab fill in settings for a 5 round auction
- number of auction rounds and roster size, 5 each
- auction draft, yes and salary cap, min bid, min increment
- starters: QB = 0.75, RB = 2, WR = 2, TE = 0.25, the rest and backups zero (or whatever you think is appropriate)


2. action tab > Compile Cheatsheets which will create 60 pick auction report tab and dollar values on cheatsheets


3. Insert a blank sheet where, after the auction is done, you can copy over the columns "Winning bidder" "Pos" "Player" "Actual Bid"


4. Back on rules tab (you can do this after step 2 above, and before your draft) change draft rounds and roster size to 20, turn auction to no and input starters / backups for the league


5. Auction begins and finishes ... now copy the data from those columns shown above in step 3 to your blank sheet.


6. Hit Compile Cheatsheets, takes a minute, but should create a 240 pick draft report tab, removing the auction report tab and dollar values from cheatsheets.


7. Copy data from the auction over to the draft report tab. Winning bidder team names go under Pick Traded To column, and Pos and Player to those spots.


8. Now, the draft order. You can switch it if is out of order. You can try resetting on owners tab, but since you are starting round 6, an even round, input in owners tab in reverse order. Failing that, you can select the teams by clicking on them right on the draft report tab. Select them 1-12, then 12-1 for rounds 6 and 7 in Buddy, and then highlight those names, copy and paste in to rounds 8-9, 10-11, 12-13, etc., etc.

Hi bytheway. That does sound like a long night. An awesome long night :)


I believe we've answered this before in prior years so let me hit the forum search and see what I can find. How much time between auction and pick style draft?
