To change your draft to an auction draft, press the 'League Settings' button located on the large green banner at the top of the page. You can then change your draft style from snake to auction. While in the settings page, you can change the budget that each player has for the draft, as well as the aggressiveness that your league has on bidding. Being more aggressive means that the teams in the draft are more likely to pay over the suggested price for players. By raising the aggressiveness bar, the suggested price will increase.
While using an auction draft, you can see under the 'FO Auction Value Original' column the suggested amount to spend on a player. Once a player has been drafted, check the 'Mark as Drafted' box under the player's name. If you drafted the player, also check the 'My Team' box under the player's name. Additionally, type in the dollar amount a player was drafted for in the 'Drafted Price' column. This allows KUBIAK to edit the 'FO Auction Value Current' column based on previous auctioned players to better suit the aggressiveness of your league.
On the <Draft Board> 'FO Auction Value - Original' shows the recommended dollar value one should spend on the given player in an auction draft. However, as each player is auctioned off, the 'FO Auction Value - Current' changes in response to previous players. For instance, if a player is bought for more than the projected original value, then the next auctioned player's current auction value will be less than his original auction value.
Rather than paying for each player like in an auction draft, a snake draft is simply picking available players on your team. You can edit your league settings to vary the amount of receivers, quarterbacks, running backs, and other players that are required for each team.
Once a player has been drafted, you check the 'Mark as Drafted' box under the player's name. If you drafted the player, you also check the 'My Team' box under the player's name. This allows for KUBIAK to tell who has and has not yet been drafted.
Individual Defensive Players (IDP)
Under ‘League Settings’ on the ‘Setup’ tab, you can scroll down to the ‘Include Individual Defensive Players (IDP)’ option and select ‘Yes’. That will unlock new roster options on that tab that let you select the number of defensive players at each position. It will also unlock the scoring value inputs on the ‘Scoring’ tab so you can select how many points defensive players should score for things like tackles and sacks in your format.
In a Keeper League, you should mark all keeper players in the league (i.e. both from your team and from other teams) as drafted. If you are doing an Auction style, you should set the Drafted Price as their keeper price (or for $0 if they are freely kept).
That will allow KUBIAK to adjust the pricing of the remaining players—it’s very common in these types of leagues for unkept players to see major inflation since teams only keep players with surplus values.
KUBIAK does not reflect longer-term player value.
