Auto-Pilot is an exciting new feature for the 2017 NFL season.
In 2016, we launched the ‘Auto-Swap Inactives’ feature, which would automatically swap out inactive players who were in your starting lineup before kickoff.
With Auto-Pilot, we’ve extended that functionality by giving you the option of having your optimal lineup submitted automatically each week.
By default, Auto-Pilot is disabled. To enable Auto-Pilot for a league, check the "Turn on Auto-Pilot" box in the Auto-Pilot area of My Playbook.
There are two ways to use Auto-Pilot:
- Swap Inactive Players Only (default): My Playbook will automatically swap out (or suggest lineup changes for) inactive players only.
- Full Auto-Pilot: My Playbook will automatically submit or suggest the optimal lineup based on the latest Expert Consensus Rankings;
If you want to make sure our lineup suggestions look good before we submit them, enable the "Confirm by Email" option. This will send an email to the address associated with your FantasyPros user account before any lineup changes are made. You will be able to click a link in the email to review and submit the updated lineup.
Enabling "Auto-Submit to [Your League Host]" means you will allow My Playbook to automatically submit the lineup; you will receive an email notification with the changes that were made.
Auto-Pilot syncs every 12 hours (except for Tuesdays) and the hour before games start. The Swap Out Inactives mode specifically only runs an hour before games.
Specifying Which Leagues Run on Auto-Pilot
You can also specify the leagues that will have Auto-Pilot enabled. If you have multiple leagues imported, change to the league you want to update using the league switcher in the upper righthand corner. Each league will have its own Auto-Pilot settings.
Auto-Pilot currently works for the following leagues: Yahoo, ESPN, NFL.com, CBS, and MyFantasyLeague.com.
