Input Personalized Draft List

For your conference draft, if you will not be able to attend in person or on-line or you would like to automate selections for your rolling draft, you can still provide influence on which players are selected during the draft for your team. There are two ways to create your personalized draft list, via electronic file or manually input on the website. If you have an electronic version/soft copy ranked list in the order that you would like to pick/draft your players, the Commissioner can upload that list into the fantasy football website for you. The file format for your list should be in Excel or a comma delimited text file with the following structure:
FirstName,LastName,ProTeam,Position

An example of a list of players ranked from 1 to 6 in text format is shown below:
Peyton,Manning,IND,QB*
LaDainian,Tomlinson,SD,RB
Steve,Smith,CAR,WR
Kansas City,Defense,KC,D
Jeff,Reed,PIT,K
Torry,Holt,STL,WR
*Pro team name and position should use the standard abbreviations as listed on the website.

There is also the option to input your ranked list of players directly into the website yourself. To utilize the manual process, on your Team page at the top, click on the Modify Draft Rankings link to access the personalized draft order selection page. The list of players on the left displays all available players for the draft. Highlight a player on the left and click on the >> button in the middle to move him over to the right (player will be inserted before the highlighted player on the right). The list of players on the right is your personal list of ranked players. If your team is set to Auto Draft, the website will select from top to bottom the players in your personal list during the draft. To utilize a starting list of ranked players, as donated by an experienced owner, click on the Upload default ranked list button located under the two player lists. This button will only appear when the page is initially loaded and your Ranked Player list is empty.

There are additonal settings that you can turn on for a more directed auto draft for your team. Under the player list are two checkbox options. The first option labeled Ignore bye week conflicts will select the next best player in your list regardless of bye week. Otherwise, the auto draft may skip over a couple of players to select the next available player from your list to avoid a bye week conflict between players of a similar position already drafted on your roster. The second option labeled Select based on position and round will force the selection of a certain position during a specific round. Using the list of drop down boxes associated with rounds, if you select this option, you will need to select a position to draft for each round. When finished updating your personal draft list and additional settings, press the submit button at the bottom of the page to confirm your changes.

Activate Auto Draft

The auto draft feature allows the website to draft players for your team based on the input you provided. To activate the auto draft feature for your team, go to your Team page. On the Team page, towards the top of the page, click on the link Modify Team and Owner Data. This action will bring you to your Owner page. If you have not logged in yet, the site will prompt you to log in to gain access to your user information. On the Owner page, towards the top right, there is a checkbox labeled Auto Draft. Check this box to set your team on auto draft. You may check or uncheck this option at any time before or during the on-line draft. When finished with your selection, press the submit button at the bottom of the page to confirm your change. You also have the option to turn on or off your auto draft from the personalized draft order selection page (accessed via the Modify Draft Rankings button on your Team page).

Participate in On-line Draft

If your draft is being held on-line using the sez17 website, participation is easy. From the sez17 main page, click on your conference abbreviation under the appropriate League in the Fantasy section. After the main fantasy football page loads, click on the Enter Draft link in the list of links in the upper left section of the left window pane. If you have not yet logged into the website, you will be prompted to do so. After logging in, a page will appear listing all of the owners in your conference who have not yet entered the draft. If you do not see your name in the list, you either are currently logged in/entered elsewhere (possibly another open browser on your computer) or are in the wrong on-line conference draft. If there are other owners at your location that will be using the same computer to enter their picks, highlight their names in the list. You may need to hold down the Ctrl key to select multiple owners in the list. Once you have highlighted all of the owners that will be participating at your location, click on the Enter Draft button to load the Draft page.

The Draft page is broken up into three parts (window panes): the Status, Action and Forum panes. The Status pane, located on the left, contains the current status of the draft including who has the next pick, who is currently picking, the last 10 picks and the Owners that are currently logged in to the draft. This pane is set to automatically refresh every 15 seconds or so although there is a Refresh button at the top to force a refresh of the pane when desired. Important: If it is your turn to pick or one of the owners at your location's turn to pick, the pick status will be outlined in dotted blue with a link inside to indicate someone needs to make a selection from that computer; for example Mason: Make Selection. Click on that link to load the Selection page. If it is an owner's pick at an alternate location, the same field will diplay green text with no link; for example Mason Szczesniak picking.... This indicates that another owner is currently picking. The pick status will change upon automatic refresh once that owner has made their selection.

The Action pane, located in the upper right, is your main pane to perform your player/position selections and view all picks thus far in the draft. When another owner is selecting, the Action pane will display the Draft List which is the current list of all teams and their draft picks to date. This pane will change when the Make Selection link is clicked in the Status pane. Once clicked, the Action pane will display the familiar Free Agent Selection page showing drop down lists by position with corresponding Select buttons and a list of the current picking owner's roster. Once a selection is made, the Action pane will return to the updated Draft List. Note, the Draft List will not automatically refresh as other owners are picking; you must press the refresh button on that page to view the latest list.

The Forum pane, located in the bottom right, is your forum to exchange real-time messaging during the draft. The forum will only display messages entered for your draft. Messages entered in the main fantasy forum or another draft will not display in the current draft forum pane. This pane will also automatically refresh on a less frequency basis than the Status pane.

Once the draft has completed, simply close the window to exit the draft.

Participate in Rolling Draft

A rolling draft is the same as an On-line Draft except the draft is spaced out over several days rather than a single 2-3 hour block on one day. If your draft is being held as a rolling draft, you will be using the on-line draft room on the sez17 website. To access the draft room, from the sez17 main page, first make sure you are logged in (check the upper right corner of your screen). Then click on your conference abbreviation under the appropriate League in the Fantasy Football section (on the left). After the main fantasy football page loads, click on the Enter Draft link in the list of links in the upper left section of the left window pane. A page will appear listing all of the owners in your conference not currently in the draft room. Select all of the owners at your location that will be selecting with you on the computer and then click on the Enter Draft button to enter the draft room.

The draft room is broken up into three parts (window panes): the Status, Action and Forum panes. The Status pane, located on the left, contains the current status of the draft including who has the next pick, who is currently picking, the last 10 picks and the Owners that are currently in the draft room. This pane is set to automatically refresh every 15 seconds or so although there is a Refresh button at the top to force a refresh of the pane when desired. Important: If it is your turn to pick, the pick status will be outlined in dotted blue with a link inside to indicate it is your pick; for example Mason: Make Selection. Click on that link to load the Selection page. If it is not your pick, the same field will diplay green text with no link; for example Mason Szczesniak picking.... This indicates that another owner is currently picking. The pick status will change upon automatic refresh once that owner has made their selection.

The Action pane, located in the upper right, is your main pane to perform your player/position selections and view all picks thus far in the draft. When another owner is selecting, the Action pane will display the Draft List which is the current list of all teams and their draft picks to date. This pane will change when the Make Selection link is clicked in the Status pane. Once clicked, the Action pane will display drop down lists by position with corresponding Select buttons and your current roster. Once a selection is made, the Action pane will return to the updated Draft List. Note, the Draft List will not automatically refresh as other owners are picking; you must press the refresh button on that page to view the latest list.

The Forum pane, located in the bottom right, is your forum to exchange real-time messaging during the draft. The forum will only display messages entered for your draft. Messages entered in the main fantasy forum or another draft will not display in the current draft forum pane. This pane will also automatically refresh on a less frequency basis than the Status pane.

Once you completed your pick, simply click the Exit Draft button and come back when it is your turn to pick again. After each pick, an email notification will be sent out to the next owner informing him/her to enter the draft room and make a selection, and so on until all 13 of your players have been selected. There is still a time restriction for each pick with this type of draft but it is much longer to give you more time to decide and submit your pick. The time limit keeps the draft moving at a steady pace. If the rolling draft does not progress fast enough, a date and time will be scheduled for everyone to login to the draft room at the same time to complete the remaining rounds.

If you will be unable to get into the Draft Room for an extended period of time (1-2 days) during the rolling draft, you can enter your next few choice picks from your list into your Personalized Draft Rankings page. This will allow the website to select your players for you based on the order you ranked them when it is your turn. If you do not have a personalized draft list entered into the system (or no players from your list can be selected based on your selection settings and previous picks), the system will pick a player for you based on the default ranked list. If you turn the autodraft feature on for your team, the system will make your pick as soon as it is your turn. You can toggle autodraft on or off for your team depending on whether you are more available and continue with manual picking or let the system pick for you. You also have the option to input your entire draft rankings list and set the autodraft on for the entirety of the draft (optional). Then you can sit back and watch the website do the work!

The rolling draft process has a pick time limit which begins as soon as the previous owner in the draft list makes their selection. During the rolling draft, each owner will have 8 hours from the previous owner’s pick to make a manual draft selection from the online draft room. If the owner is unable to make a manual selection within that time, the draft bot will make a selection for that owner. The draft bot will use the owner provided personal ranked list by selecting the next best player from that list based on the autodraft configuration options chosen (those options include: ignore bye weeks, select a specific position by round, etc.). If no personal ranked list was submitted by the owner or no viable player is selectable from the personal ranked list, then the draft bot will select the next best player from the default ranked list still based on the autodraft configuration options chosen by the owner. If no configuration options are chosen, the draft bot will use the default options.

For most rolling drafts, it is challenging to complete all 13 rounds of the draft before Labor Day so a date and time on or after Labor Day will be determined to hold a live online draft to finish up the remaining rounds where pick time limits will be significantly reduced (default 5 minutes).

Select Free Agent

If not logged in, login to the site by clicking on the Login link in the left-hand pane between the static reference links and the list of conferences, divisions and teams. To select a free agent for your team, scroll down the left hand panel (containing all team, division, and conference names) and click on your team name link. This action will then bring you to your Team page. On the Team page, towards the top of the page, click on the link *** Select Free Agent *** link.

If you have not logged in yet, the site will prompt you to log in to gain access to your selection information.

There are two versions of the Free Agent Selection page. During the first half of weeks 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12, you will order your selections (waiver wire). At all other times, you select your free agent on a first-come, first-serve basis. On the Free Agent Selection page, there are drop down lists for each available player by position. To select a player, highlight the desired player in the drop down list then click on the appropriate position selection button, next to the drop down box, to submit your selection. For example, if you want a RB, select the RB player from the drop down list then press the Select RB button immediately next to the drop down list you selected from. During the order process/weeks, your selections will be placed at the bottom of the Free Agent Selection page ranked in the order that you select(ed) them. During the first-come, first-serve weeks, the player selected will be immediately added to your team. This can be confirmed by viewing your roster on your Team page.

The order process is designed to allow teams with worse records to benefit the most giving them the higher priority for free agent selection. At 5:00 PM on Tuesdays of weeks 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12, the website will distribute all free agents ordered based on team ranking and free agent selection ranking. The last place team in the conference will receive their first ranked free agent choice. The second-to-last-place team will receive their first ranked free agent choice unless that player was already distributed to the last place team. The third-to-last-place team will receive their first ranked free agent choice unless that player was already distributed to one of the previous worse teams... and so on. If a free agent selection was already distributed, the website will move down the ranked listing for that team and distribute the next available player. If all players have been previously distributed or no free agents were ordered for a specific team, then the owner of that team will not be given a free agent and can choose a free agent on a first-come, first-serve basis after the selection deadline. The ordered free agent distribution process may take upwards of a couple hours.

During the free agent ordering process, the list of free agents that you have selected so far are listed at the bottom of the Free Agent Selection page in ranked order. To remove a free agent from your ranked list at the bottom of the Free Agent Selection page, click on the (x) next the player you want to remove. Any players ranked lower than the player removed will be upgraded one ranking position. You may select that removed player again to place him at the bottom of your ranked list.

If you have Draft/Free Agent Email Notifications (located on your Owner page) set to All for your team, you will receive an email after submitting your free agent orders and selections for a final confirmation. You must make your free agent selection(s) by the free agent selection deadline which is 5:00 PM Tuesday afternoons to be involved in order process. If, for whatever reason, you have trouble accessing the website, you may email or leave a voicemail for your CBD representative or the Commissioner to make your free agent ordering changes. Both mediums of communications have timestamps, so as long as the change request is made before the selection deadline, the choosen free agent will be input. All free agents must be selected by the end of the regular season.

1. Log in to the main fantasy page using your team name.
2. Click on the link in the left hand panel of the team you would like to enter the draft picks for (brings you to that team's Team page).
3. From the Team page, click on the link, Enter Draft Picks (brings you to the Team Draft page).
4. On the Team Draft page, select each of the 13 drafted players by that team from the 13 drop down lists.
5. Submit the team's picks.

The favored team is listed on the left with the number of points they would have to give up to be even with the opposing team. The list also displays the over/under value for each game which represents the estimated total number of points that will be scored in the game. The home team for each game is displayed in ALL CAPS.

All owners who have joined the Sez Stock Exchange are eligible to participate in the weekly spread contest. From the Spreads page, Sez Stock Exchange owners may pick teams from the list that they believe will beat the spread. Using their playdough, each Exchange member can demonstrate the level of confidence for their belief. An Exchange member may choose the favorite to win by more than the indicated spread or choose the underdog to win outright or lose by less than the spread. An owner may also demonstrate their beliefs on the projected over/under value by choosing whether they believe the final combined score of their game will be higher or lower than the projected value. Note: Exchange members will not be able to share their beliefs in games involving their own team(s).

Fantasy Stock Game

Want to know the general rules of the game?
The purpose of the game is to accumulate the most playdough during the 12 regular season fantasy football weeks. Each fantasy team has a stock symbol and stock value. Members of the Sez Stock Exchange have the option to purchase and sell shares of any fantasy team stock with their current playdough allotment. Each week, the stock value of each team will change based on game statistics and roster changes. Buy low and sell high! Stock prices will rise or fall incrementally between the hours of 9 AM and 5 PM, Monday through Friday. The game will begin after the scoring deadline for week 1 and end on the scoring deadline for week 12 based on the league schedule. Once a player joins the Sez Stock Exchange, he/she receives 10,000 playdough allowing the option to buy/sell from/to (transaction) the Exchange containing an unlimited pool of stock for every team. Each transaction will have a playdough fee based on the number of shares and a flat rate. As much as your liquid assets allow, you may make an unlimited number of transactions. There is currently no limitation to the number of stock shares a player can purchase of their own the fantasy team. In the future, to prevent insider trading, the purchase of own team stock will be limited to 20% of the outstanding shares.

Any transaction made outside of these hours (while the market is closed) will be saved (as a pending transaction) and executed at 9:00 AM on the next business day at the opening asking price. Note that the previous day closing price may not be the same as the following day opening price for pending transactions. All players will purchase stock at the asking price and sell stock at bid price (may be different).

Bought or sold stock on the Sez Stock Exchange, but at what price? You bought 10 shares at 50 playdough per share but it costed 501.20? Submitted a purchase or sale but your portfoloio was not updated?
When buying stock on the Sez Stock Exchange, you pay the asking price multipled by the number shares plus a transaction fee. When selling stock on the Sez Stock Exchange, you pay the bid price multipled by the number shares plus a transaction fee. Every transaction is subject to a flat and share-based transaction fee. The flat fee for any transacation is 1 playdough. The share-based fee is 0.02 playdough per share. Hence for the purchase of 10 shares at an asking price of 50 playdough, the transaction fee would be 1 playdough (flat) plus 0.20 playdough (share-based) for a total transaction cost of 1.20 playdough.Once a transaction is executed, it may take up to 30 seconds for the transaction to update your profile. If your profile is not updated after that time, you may have attempted to purchase stock at a total cost greater than your current playdough or you may have attempted to sell more stock than you own. Both attempts will result in a warning message on the website. Please remember the transaction fees when making a purchase as the total cost may exceed your liquid assets.
