We run a 10 team league where the top 15 QB, 15 RB, 15 WR, 3 TE, and 2 Defenses are auction (or the first five rounds) and the remaining 15 rounds are a snake format. Is there a way that your software can be configured for this?

Im sorry but, our software currently does not offer this option due to the fact that so few people use these types drafts for their leagues. You may need to open 2 windows and use one as the auction league for the first 5 rounds. The other you can manually load the picks from the auction league in and use that for the remaining rounds. I know its not ideal but, it will suit your purposes and still give your recommended picks according to your league settings. Give it a try in a mock draft to see if it works well for you.
Thanks and let us know if you have any further questions.

You can enter the snake rounds using the Auction style draft by entering a value of 0 dollars for each player.

I have the same issue and I am looking for software to handle this. I have the demo, how can I test this to see if it meets my needs.

Let me know.

Hi Ben,

I thought I read in another post that this would clear the rosters, is this true? This would be a problem if so. Again is there a way to test this in a demo or something before I buy?

Thanks.

Yes my apologies for the confusion. When you start an auction draft, the Draft Analyzer will not let you change style. Try Ted's suggestion of entering a value of 0 for the player as he drafted.
