Resolving Contested Draft Picks

Startup Draft - Firemen League

See the Draft Rules for how these players were awarded.  Remember, that all contested players are placed first - so at the beginning, all teams have 42 million in unused salary cap cash - regardless of how many uncontested draft picks they had.

 

For resolution purposes, any player rank left at zero was changed to "999" (to allow for sorting).

We resolve in order of the count of teams selecting a player - starting with the ones picked most often.

 

Brett Lawrie was selected by 14 Teams
