Frequently Asked Questions
Does the software require an internet connection for use during my draft?
No. All data for the software is stored on your PC, so internet access during your draft isn't required. However, it is recommended that you use the "Update Projections" button to update your data as close to your draft day as possible. This will ensure you get the most up-to-date projections and injury information during your draft.
What types of draft styles does the software support?
The software supports snake, straight or custom drafts, as well as auctions. Even if your league has a unique draft order or traded picks, our assignment of players is flexible so you can assign players to the correct teams.
Does the software run mock drafts?
Yes. The draft software uses an advanced AI that takes into account both value-based rankings and ADP. There is also a certain degree of randomization programmed in so your mock draft results are a bit different every time. Tip: Before beginning a mock draft, go to Drafts > Duplicate a draft. That way, you won't have to re-enter your settings when you want to start another mock draft.
Can the software run mock auctions?
This type of advanced AI is unfortuantely something that hasn't been developed yet, but we haven't ruled out the possibility of exploring ways to include it in future seasons.
Can the software be used for more than one draft?
Yes. Set up as many drafts as you'd like with the software, and go back to them at any point.
Can my friends log in to the software and participate in drafts?
The draft software is designed for individual users to monitor their drafts, but you can share any draft you make with any other RotoWire subscriber. Just go to Export > Draft File and you will generate a text file in .draft format that can be shared via an e-mail attachment or removable storage device.
Can I transfer a draft to other devices?
Yes. You can import/export drafts between the PC Software, Mac software and iOS apps. To do this, go to Export > Draft to RotoWire servers. It can then be brought up via the import menu on any of the aforementioned devices. (Note: Users must be logged in with the same RotoWire username/password combination on each device.)
Will the software sync up with my league's live draft?
We unfortunately don't have the necessary access to third-party sites to support a direct sync at this time. However, a major focus of our software development has been making it easy to follow along with a live draft. In a snake draft, for example, it takes just two clicks to add a player to a team and move on to the next pick.
Can I sync the software's rosters to RotoWire's MLB Commish (our league hosting service)?
Yes. You will need to go to Export > Draft to RotoWire servers, and then e-mail support@rotowire.com to let us know your draft is ready to sync. The team names in the draft software will have to match up exactly with the team names in the MLB Commish.
How are the RotoWire MLB projections generated?
Projection gurus Jeff Erickson (hitters) and Todd Zola (pitchers) manually project the players that are included in the software. These projections are constantly revisited and react to recent news updates, so we recommend updating your projections at least once every 24 hours. If you run an update and believe there is still something drastically wrong with a player projection, please e-mail support@rotowire.com and we will pass along your suggestion.
Does the software calculate inflation in auction formats (prices adjust based on players that have already been drafted)?
Yes. Please be sure the "Use Inflation" box is checked. Then, users can update the dollar values by clicking on the "Update $" button.
Why do players have negative values?
While the negative values may appear incorrect, they show up that way as a means to sort the rankings. If the negatives didn't show up, you would be left with a large group of players worth the minimum bid, and no way to rank them. Essentially all the negative players will only be worth the minimum bid based on our projections.
How are projected standings calculated?
The standings are calculated based on your league settings and the projections of the drafted players. Only players from the starting lineup are factored in the standings calculation.
When editing my league's scoring categories, why aren't certain categories (OBP, ERA, WHIP, Batting average) shown?
You may have accidentally selected your league's scoring style to be points instead of rotisserie. Points leagues have different point values for different categories. For example: 2 points for each stolen base and 1 point for each RBI.
Why aren't the players sorted by total points?
After entering your draft settings, the players will sort by their value-based rankings, which take position scarcity into account. For example, a catcher scoring less points than an outfielder may still appear ahead in the rankings, because the catcher position isn't as deep -- especially in two-catcher formats.
Can I add a scoring category to the software?
Only the settings offered in the software can be used in the calculation of the value-based rankings, though we've done extensive market research to help us include as many scoring categories as possible. If you believe we're missing an important scoring category, you can e-mail us at support@rotowire.com, and we will consider your suggestion next season.
Can I customize my Display Settings?
Yes. In the "Edit Draft Settings" menu, click on the "Display" tab to change the settings that will be displayed on the player list view.
Does the draft support keeper leagues?
Yes. Any players being kept can be added to teams, along with any draft pick penalty, before beginning the draft. The rankings do not adjust for keeper leagues due to the many different rules combinations (there's no "one size fits all" keeper league), but we do make player age easily viewable to help users make informed decisions. We also rank 400 MLB prospects to help owners in deep dynasty formats. Tip: If your keepers do not include a draft pick penalty, just add a round to your draft (via the roster settings) and add the player at that pick.
I cannot seem to unlock the draft software. What am I doing wrong?
First, please be sure you are entering your exact username and password (this information is case sensitive). If there is a problem with your username and password, you can e-mail support@rotowire.com to get a software unlock code. Note: Users on a 10-day trial are allowed to download the software and view the customization options available, but full capabilities of the program, such as adding players to teams and updating projections, are reserved for paid subscribers.
Can I print my cheat sheet from the software?
Since drafts can be exported across multiple devices for users on the go, this feature did not make it in to the first version of this year's program. We are considering adding it in a future update, however. If your league enforces a "technology-free draft" and printed cheat sheets are your only option, please e-mail your exact league settings to support@rotowire.com, and we can follow up with your customized player list.
What do I do if the software freezes, crashes or I need to report a bug?
First, we recommend closing and re-opening the program, as this fixes the great majority of minor problems. If the issue persists, please log the exact sequence you used to create the problem and e-mail the full description to support@rotowire.com (screenshots are helpful as well). Our support team will then provide you with a temporary workaround, or at the very least, a timeline for an update containing a fix.
What do the different text colors signify on the player list?
If the text is red, the player has some type of injury. You can read more about this in the box at the bottom. If the text is blue, the player currently has a "minor league" designation in our database -- he's signed to a team, but not on the MLB roster.
