To prevent there being a reward for tanking I propose we do a lottery with all teams who miss the playoffs getting one shot, plus the team who wins the consolation round being guaranteed a top three pick. The rest of the draft is determined based on it's own lotto involving those teams that didn't win the title. From there it's snaking order based on round one.
Mack North: 1 chance(missed playoffs)
iggyiggyigoudala: 1 chance(missed playoffs) + a top three pick guarantee(won consolation rounds)
MangoKid: 1 chance(missed playoffs)
jbml: 1 chance(missed playoffs)
lotto takes place and the results are as follows:
- Mack North
Unfortunately for jbml in this case, iggy won a top three guarantee and so the order is then adjusted to the following to honor that:
- Mack North
lotto is run for the rest of the draft and here are the results:
5. Doc Naismith
Then the champ closes the round:
The other option would be for the lotto to take place for the four teams who missed the playoffs. They all get the same odds but the twist is that they get to pick where they draft based on the order in which their name is drawn. This could be a appealing because some teams like to pick near the end, some like picking in the middle and some don't like picking first if there is no consensus #1. Then the playoffs lotto is held and the same method is used.
EDIT: Just realized I crossed my wires and used the keeper league teams as me example scenario for the Dynasty. Hope this didn't confuse anyone.
