Resolving Contested Draft Picks

Startup Draft - Scooby Doo 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 6 teams

4 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, Anthony Rizzo (5 teams, Salary 2789)

Team Cap Left Total Players Bid Rank
Georgia 38000 0 1000 4

Galactic 38000 0 1000 26
Camelback 38000 0 0 1
Cincinnati 38000 0 0 6

 

3 teams listed a tiebreaking bid - in this case all the same amount - so they move on and since cap left and total players are at their starting values, we go to rank - which makes Georgia the winner here.
