Anywhere between a couple minutes and a couple days. In general, it helps if I have a bit of advance notice. :-)

It appears that PFS has totally redone their entire site. It didn't look like that last week. Alas, I'm thinking some of their resources are currently down...or maybe being phased out. I have no idea for sure though. :-/


heres an updated link to the PFS place

That link is awesome! Great find! ;-D

You can randomize things pretty easily using excel as well...

It has a formula '=RAND()' that generates a random number between 0 and 1. I just put all the team names in a worksheet and let that formula generate a number for each, then rank them based on their number.

tip: the random number changes every time you change the spreadsheet, so you may want to copy and paste just the values since you can't really save the results with the formulae still in there.

I set the draft order in my leagues
by a prediction of the New York Stock Exchange
DJIA closing number for a certain date.
One of the most widely publicised and randomly
generated numbers in the world.
League predictions are posted the day before.
That way all is above board and w/o question.

The randomizer on PFS allows the results to be emailed to all the owners so that's also "above board and w/o question." ;-D

Use the "Dow Jones method": pick a date in the future and go to the financial page for that day. With your teams numbered, look only at the last numbers of the various market closings (e.g. the 6 in 23,455.16) and draft in the order that the team numbers appear (not good for more than ten teams, with 0 = 10). There's no way this can be tampered with.
