Draft Order

I am in an ESPN league (Big Ballas, 92255) that has on offline draft.  The draft starts with 2 straight line rounds, worst to 1st and then reverses and goes to snake style for the remainder of the draft.  The draft order, other than listing the order of the 1st round is not set up on the website.  The only way that I can find to set this up in Analyzer is to set up the entire draft in the custom draft order.  Is this the only option or is there an easier way to do this?

Hello Neal.
If you set the draft as a 3rd round reversal draft. You can then go into the custom draft tab and edit only the 2nd round.
This should then be the correct draft order if i understand correctly?

My rock hard head didn't think of that!  Thanks Robert, I'll give that a try and let you know what happens.

I tried it and the program got all kinds of confused.  It was basically trying to go 2 directions in a strange sort of way.  I'll try doing the straight line option and reverse every other round.  Thanks for the idea.

The only thing I haven't tried is doing the complete custom draft.  I'll go back and watch the help videos, but I don't remember this topic or the custom draft order being covered in them.  Last year I just went the snake draft.  Wrote down the picks for the 2nd round and the league waited for me to catch up.  I am becoming convinced that the only way this will work is to do the custom draft in it's entirety assuming it will work at all beyond the preset selections.
