We just started out second year. Our draft takes some work from the commish, but it's a solid way of doing it. We have 12 teams. 6 are in the playoffs, and 6 are not. The teams that make the playoffs are in one pool, and the teams that don't are in another pool. The teams that don't make the playoffs draft in the first 6 spots, but they're based on best finish to worst. So if you finish 7th in our league, you get first pick the following season. The team in 12th gets the 6th pick. The teams that do make the playoffs draft from worst to first based on order of finish. The team in 6th gets 7th pick. The team in 1st gets 12th. Here's our draft order:
Non snaking draft, so the order stays the same throughout. We can keep up to 12 players, so competitive balance forces the teams that finished best last season and have most players returning to get last picks in all rounds.
