The fastest and easiest way to set up your league is by importing it via the Add Leagues option. But even without going through the import process, the Draft Dominator makes it super easy to adjust basic league settings with just a few clicks.
Note: We recommend using Google Chrome or the mobile or desktop apps to get the best experience with the Draft Dominator.

Adjusting Basic Settings
When using the web browser version, hover over the Draft Settings button at the top of the screen and select the Basic Settings option. On mobile, tap the gears icon at the bottom then select Basic Settings near the top of the app. You should see the following menu:
Basic Draft Settings allow you to choose between mock and real drafts, snake or salary cap drafts, the number of rounds, and you can also name your draft. Under Basic League Settings, you can name your league, choose the number of teams, choose which site’s ADP you want to reference (more on this next), set the number playoff teams and which weeks the playoffs will cover.
The ADP defaults to a consensus of multiple sources. You can change it to be site-specific, which will adjust auto-draft settings for mocks and will change how the Draft Dominator predicts who your opponents will draft next in real drafts. This is a useful feature if you know that some of your league-mates use a specific ADP as one of their main sources for deciding which players to draft and when.
The Best-ball/Draftmaster checkbox adjusts the positional need balances (lowering quarterbacks, for example) and boosts up certain players who have higher week-to-week variance.
