PrimeTime Draft Player List Service

Fully-customized Player Lists

Fully-customized player lists are for advanced users that want to create a draft using player lists beyond those included with PrimeTime Draft 2021. Fully-customized player lists are a bit more complicated as there are specific requirements to ensure successful creation for use in PrimeTime Draft 2021. If you need assistance with this feature, please contact customer support.

The downloaded template CSV is divided into sections identified by a line with square brackets (i.e. [<section>]). Following the section identifier is a line that identifies the fields and their order for that section. Data for the section then follows the fields line.

The following documentation describes what is required in each section and provides an example of what the section might look like.

Section: Teams
Field Name Description
Name: The full name of the team.
Abbreviation: The abbreviated name of the team. Typically no more than 3 letters.

The following example section would create a player list with 2 teams, "New England Patriots" (abbreviated "NE") and "Los Angeles Rams" (abbreviated "LAR").
[Teams]
Name Abbreviation
New England Patriots NE
Los Angeles Rams LAR

If the drafted players do not belong to a team (for example, individual sports like golf), you can remove the entire section.
Section: Positions
Field Name Description
Name: The abbreviated name of the position. Typically no more than 3 letters.
Color: Default color for the position. Must be one of: red, orange, yellow, lime, green, pink, purple, blue, blue2, teal, gray10, gray20, gray30, gray40, gray50

The following example section would create a player list with 3 positions, "QB", "RB", and "WR".
[Positions]
Name Color
QB red
RB blue
WR green

If the drafted players do not have positions (for example, individual sports like golf), you must define a "default" position:
[Positions]
Name Color
Default red
Section: Players
Field Name Description
Full Name: Full player name.
Position Name: Name of position as listed in [Positions] section.
Team Abbreviation: Abbreviation of team as listed in [Teams] section or blank for free agent (FA).
Rookie (Optional): Optional rookie status. Default is 'N'. Specify 'Y' to indicate player is a rookie.
Salary (Optional): Optional default salary if player is selected in a Salary Cap draft or default starting bid if player is nominated in an Auction draft.

Note: The combination of full name, position name, and team abbreviation may not exactly match another player. So, for sports with no positions or teams, this means the player full names must be unique.


The following example section would create a player list with 3 players, 2 of which belong to teams and have default salaries and 1 player is a rookie "free agent" with no default salary:
[Players]
Full Name Position Name Team Abbreviation Rookie (Optional) Salary (Optional)
Tom Brady QB NE 30
Todd Gurley RB LAR 20
Joe Free-Agent WR Y
