We draw numbers and use those to pick where your draft spot is.
Example...if I pick #1 out of the hat, I can pick whichever draft spot I choose. Say I pick drafting in the #4 slot. Then the 2nd pick gets anywhere from 1 to 3, 5 to 12.
Just a little different and lets people use a little strategy or maybe get in/out of divisions that other players are in. It can shake things up as some people like to draft at the end of the round.
We used to do it this way. It's a little better than random.
I'll tell you what NOT to do (we started this in my league this year and I hate it)
In a 12-team league, 6 teams make the playoffs (hate it).
The six teams who don't make the playoffs have their own tournament.
The order of finish in the "losers" tournament get to pick next year's draft slot.
Well, this year, those six guys took the top 5 picks and the 12-hole.
Since I can make the playoffs every year with half my brain tied behind my back, I will never again choose in the top half of the draft.
