It's a live draft. Yahoo will assign a draft order which snakes from 1-10 and back from 10-1. Each draft spot has 90 seconds to make a decision. If you can't make the draft Yahoo will pick for you, but there are pitfalls in auto-pick. Yahoo will take the highest overall-rated player (in Yahoo's opinion) regardless of what positions you need filled. You could have 2 TE spots open and have filled all your WR spots, but autopick will grab a higher-rated WR if available even though you need a TE in that round. It's been getting better over the years, but it will still fill bench slots even if starting lineup slots are open. It's also notorious for picking kickers and defenses well before they should be picked (i.e. the last 2 rounds of the draft).

Kevin, if for some reason you can't change the team name I can make it so.
