Draft order - staggered?

Postby kinghill » Mon Jul 30, 2007 2:55 pm

I'm starting up a new league this year and one of the owners recommended using a "staggered" draft order. I've always used serpentine. What do you guys think of this? At first glance is seems "more fair" but my tired brain right now is thinking it's going to be more work for me (commish) at the draft

Proposal: staggered draft order instead of serpentine:

Rd1: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Rd2: 6 7 8 9 10 1 2 3 4 5
Rd3: 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 1
Rd4: 7 8 9 10 1 2 3 4 5 6
Rd5: 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 1 2
Rd6: 8 9 10 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
Rd7: 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 1 2 3
Rd8: 9 10 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
Rd9: 5 6 7 8 9 10 1 2 3 4
Rd10: 10 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Rd11: 6 7 8 9 10 1 2 3 4 5
Rd12: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Rd13: 7 8 9 10 1 2 3 4 5 6
Rd14: 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 1
Rd15: 8 9 10 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
Rd16: 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 1 2
Rd17: 9 10 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
Rd18: 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 1 2 3

Hopefully no one is drinking at your draft..... Serpentine would certainly be less work.

Yikes, looks like a nightmare for you. Serpentine is pretty much the rule of thumb. At first glance picks #5 and #10 look to be ugly positions.

It is hard enough getting people to pick/remember where they pick in a serpentine draft, how are you guys going to keep track of this. I see no reason to change :-/

It looks like the people with the later picks really get screwed with this set up.

Very confusing. :-t I really don't see the reason on a 10 team league. If you were in a 14 or 16 team league, I can see trying to change it up to make it more fair.
