Resolving Contested Draft Picks

Startup Draft - Royal Flush 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 38 million in unused salary cap cash - regardless of how many uncontested draft picks they had.

Also with a rule change in 2014, players with salary 100 are placed first and when that is complete, all rosters (and salaries) are cleared temporarily to place the remaining players.  In a 2015 rule change, we start the process first with any players given a #1 draft rank.

 

Resolving Players with Salary  > 100 - Ranked #1 and Picked by 8 to 7 teams

8 players have a draft rank of #1 and we'll resolve them first...in the typical order (most teams first, descending salary, etc.)

 

First up, Jorge Soler (9 teams, Salary 123)
