Thanks! Very informative. As far as the 2021 rookie draft, what do you think of taking the odds based results to determine picks? I won the league last season but decided to rebuild so I definitely would not be getting the 1.12 again. From what I’ve seen, this is how analysts do mock drafts. I do like the auction option (I have 6 picks in the first two rounds) but our league is very old fashioned and set in its ways. Thanks again!

MFL gives week by week odds of who will win each match up. While certainly not completely accurate, it would at least be evidentiary in nature, but I totally agree with your assessment too. Maybe we can factor in historical winning percentage against the given opponent too. Heck, I was trying to rebuild last year and ended up winning the whole thing so I completely understand your reasoning and there is plenty of evidence to back it up as well. I’m also totally biased since I now have the worst team on paper and want a top 2021 pick! Thanks for the response and I will copy this article to bring to the commissioner if we have to go that route. Take care!

This is awesome, thanks! How would you deal with startup leagues if there’s no season at all? We just did a startup draft and guys have been really active in the trade department, but we’re not sure how to deal with the draft next year if there’s no season this year (or not enough of a season to position guys for the rookie draft fairly).

Snarfs, If there is no season, you can have the 2021 draft order be the inverse of the startup.

I like this answer a lot, because I was 12 of 12 last year haha.

Very good article and much needed discussion for all leagues. I would be conscious if there are waiver cut off times for each league. Should there be players made inactive past your league cutoff time or just before a game owners should be allowed to make roster moves later than normal to cover that inactive player. Some leagues lock rosters 1pm Sunday through Monday night but this year could be different due to COVID.

I can just imagine the various reactions of my owners if I were to announce we’re doing away with picks & having an auction draft in 2021.

Reigning 2019 Champ (who traded away all his 2021 picks): “YEAH! LET’S DO THIS!!”

Rebuilding Owner (who owns three 1sts, two 2nds & two 3rds): “F*** you, I quit!”

Hard pass. We’ll just stick with the 2020 draft order.

In that scenario, the rebuilding owner would be rich with auction cash to bid with and the champ would have almost nothing.
