I have the combo package. Lineup analyzer is not importing my team or league settings from CBS. As an FYI - Draft Analyzer does import my league.

If, you did your draft using the draft analyzer you can go to add players tab and click import from draftanalyzer and your teams will automatically load for you. If you did not use the draftanalyzer for your draft then you can go to add players and use the copy and paste function. You can go to your host site and highlight and copy your roster and just paste it into the in-lineup analyzer Please let us know if you have any further questions.
Thanks
Bob.

We did not use draft analyzer for the league. I did personally and then exported that file.
1. So there is no import from the CBSsports site?
2. When I load the league into Draft analyzer I see the team names, but I noticed the roster settings are not correct. (For e.g., we don't have 3 WR option only 2 but it shows 3). It makes me wonder whether the league rules were really imported.
3. Can I expect anything to import into Lineup Analyzer, or am I going to have to set all rules/roster settings, etc.?

This wasn't what I expected. I thought the information would sync with the CBSsports FFB league.

Your league will only import if it has not yet drafted. Once the draft is over CBS will only export the results for 15 minutes after it ends. If, your league has not yet drafted it should import all the settings correctly. If it is not then please send an email to support@draftanalyzer.com with a breif explanation of your issue so they can take a deeper look into this for you.

Hi Ted - I got your email. I got the following response after emailing support@draftanalyzer.com. It appears the most basic features of syncing with your league is not supported.

It appears that if you do an offline draft, you can't sync with CBS. And, even if you do an online draft - you have 15 minutes to sync. This seems very strange. Here is the response I got from support@draftanalyzer.com. Similar to the above response from Bob.

"Once the draft is over CBS will no longer export any data to our software. You can only import the league for 15 minutes after its over. Once the draft room closes its gone. You can also not export your league info to CBS. If your scoring rules and such are not correct you will have to manually edit them in the web or lineup analyzers. If you need to enter your rosters from CBS into the lineup analyzer, you can go to add players and choose the copy and paste method."

So I'm not the commish. We did an offline draft. I have the combo/ultimate package. I simply want to sync/import my league rules, roster settings and my players from CBSsports. Can that be done?
Help.

PT - Yes. You can still import your league scoring rules and roster settings from CBS into the Draft Analyzer. You can do that at anytime. What Bob is referring to is the "Draft Picks" that are only imported during your live on-line draft and for a short period following the draft until CBS clears the draft data from their systems.

Next week we will have the ability to sync your rosters with CBS (as well as ESPN, MyFantasyLeague and RTSports) through the Line-up Analyzer.

Until then, if you want to get your players into the Line-up Analyzer and they are not already saved in your Draft Analyzer, use the "Copy and Paste Enter Roster" feature in the Line-up Analyzer under "Add Players".

I hope that clarifies the situation.

Thanks, that make sense. So the final question then is, why aren't the roster settings and scoring rules coming over?
