Tiers By World Rank

  • # of Players within Each Tier - Default is 10, you can choose from 1-20 and can even modify further by moving players directly from the tiers after the initial sorting is complete. 
  • # of Selections Required from Each Tier - Default is 1, you can choose from 1-20 and will also have the ability to have different totals specific to each tier if desired. 

No Tiers - Pick Anyone

By selecting the No Tiers - Pick Anyone option all of the players in the field will be listed in a single field. The only criteria you'll need to set on this format is the total number of selections you want to be required for the team totals. 

  • # of Selections Required - Default is 10, to adjust simply click the number field under the tier and enter the desired number of selections you would like to require.  

Build From Scratch

As the name suggests, this is your option to get started with a blank slate.

  • Adding/Deleting Tiers - You can add tiers as you go and you can delete them as well if needed. 

  • Arranging Tiers - As you build, you may decide that your tiers need to be arranged in a different order. You can quickly adjust the tier order by clicking the "Move Down & Move Up" buttons. Move until your heart's content and the tiers are in the exact order that you want them in.

    • Add a player to a tier by Clicking the "Add Player" field within the tier you want that player in and typing the players' name. 
    • Click "Assign Tier" next to the player's name and select the tier you want them to be moved to.
