ITS my experience that most people that auto draft play in way to many league and they tend to not be as into the season al if you pick your own. plan on half of the players that autodraft in public leagues to quite sooner in the season.. make the draft manditory if possible. unless a life threatning event.
@IPA - Very ignorant response as you are lumping everyone who autodraft into one category. Not true. And I don't play in public leagues and do autodraft in some quality private leagues and remain competitive and active. But aside from me, there are some legitimate reasons for people to choose an autodraft. See my post below.
