How do you guys determine draft order?

11 posts in this topic

Year after year we just do a randomized draft order, but I want to do something a little more creative this year. There would be a bunch of cool ideas if we could all meet up, but we're scattered at different colleges throughout the country.

Any fun ideas to determine draft order? Ideally it wouldn't be a lot of skill involved so that it was still a randomized.

In one of our leagues this year, just a quick summary of it, we are doing a drawing 1-14, and whenever your name is drawn, a MLB team name is drawn at the same time. Based on the spring training record of your team that was drawn with your name, up to the time of our draft, is where you will be drafting. Gives us something to root for during spring training, and makes things a little bit more fun.

Sounds pretty fun actually. I might have to try to implement this in one of my leagues.

This is a really cool idea.

sounds like a cool way to do it, but isn't that a bit tight schedule-wise? I know the M's have their final spring training game on March 30th and then start the season two days later. I would assume this is pretty much the norm but I guess if it works for your league to draft one day before the season starts then good on you.

our league gives the winner of last year's consolation bracket the #1 pick and then randomizes the rest. I'm thinking of doing a live video this year to add some excitement to it but the order will still be random, other than the first slot.

We do it up to the day of our draft. So whenever our draft is, is when we will mark the standings/draft order that day. We don't go all the way to the end of ST.

We do the basic option of just having reverse standings from the previous year(regular season standings) with only the league champion and runner-up getting the last 2 picks, regardless of where they finished at during the end of the regular season.

If you want another way to do it randomly: http://fftoolbox.com...r_generator.cfm

You can do it couple days/weeks before draft to allow managers to prep according to draft position. Sends out email to each manager letting them know draft order. Easy and been using it for years. Then just set order based on the randomization in league settings.

My keeper league (12 teams) - Obviously different with keepers but bottom 6 go based upon regular season record then 6 teams who make playoffs is determined by final playoff standings with the champion going last.
