What does it do?

Can we draft online with yahoo! ? Does it automatically take players off the list when they are drafted or do I
have to input all the info manually. I see that there is a time clock. I guess my question really is.....
Does the draft buddy link up with online drafts?

Hi hoozyerdaddy. No, sorry, it doesn't sync with different league management systems like Yahoo, CBS, etc. That is a little much for Excel to handle (and perhaps for me to figure out too ). The picks get input manually by clicking a player name and hitting a Draft Player button, which is pretty quick, but not as quick as you are suggesting for people drafting online.
What is the best advice for drafting online and using the draft buddy? I remember a few years ago trying it and it was frustating to say the least. I didnt have time to focus on my team. to busy going back and forth. Any help would be appreciated!!

The big thing to speed up and stay focussed online, is to try to keep it so you don't always have to flip back and forth between windows where one window is hidden. If you have two monitors it works extremely well. Internet browser in one to watch the draft, Excel in the other for Draft Buddy. If you don't have two monitors, then I would try to adjust the size and shape of the two windows to fit the screen as best you can. Keep the internet window on the most crucial part you need to see the picks go by, and resize Buddy down a bit. There will be more scrolling but I think this is still better than flipping windows.
