What kind of scoring and drafting did Yahoo use last season?
There are several different ways to set up the league. There's head-to-head, rotisserie scoring, and the traditional fantasy point league. I've never used the rotisserie scoring before, but I have used the other two and thought they were both very good.
There are several draft types. There's the live online draft where you and the rest of your league draft at the same time. This usually takes about 1 1/2 to 2 hours, depending on how many are in the league. If someone can't be at the draft, then they rank their players ahead of time and the computer drafts for them. Then there's the other live draft type where everyone has 24 hours to make their picks. This works for big leagues who can't get everyone together at the same time. If you don't want to do one of those, then you can set it up so that you rank all the players in the order you want, and then it automatically selects the highest ranked player still available. I might be leaving out a variation or two, but those are the basics.
