For example, the case that finally let us narrow it down was a guy that excluded all but 10 kickers, and by the time the autopicking algorithm tried to get him a kicker, all 10 were gone. The first priority of the autopicker is to make sure you end up with a starting lineup, so this led it into a weird and unintended code path.

That is kind of an awesome bug. Congrats on the find, I know those can be tough to find although it seems to me that this should have been an immediate edge case and caught by QA (assuming your team does releases this way) pretty quickly.

But enough with that, congrats on the bug find. Those can certainly be tricky... ;-D

I know this post is two years old but I'm running up against this problem right now. I ranked all my players for a yahoo draft that I'm going to miss this weekend. I have excluded all kickers so it doesn't pick a kicker for me in the 8th round. I tried my rankings out in several mocks and once it gets past my starters the computer starts ignoring my rankings for the bench picks.

Can anybody provide any help? Is this just a problem in the mock drafts or is my real draft this weekend going to have the same problem?

I have been in draft after draft on ESPN where owners havent been there. They changed their rankings but they still ended up with 8 RBs and 3 TEs and just one person at other positions.
