Leatherheads FC Rules Appendix Sample Draft

Sample Straight-Line (1-8, 1-8, 1-8…) Auto-Draft

For Coaches expressing concern over the LFC’s use of a straight-line draft instead of one that reverses each round, below are the results of the first five rounds of an autopicked test sample draft (rounds 6-18 available on request).  We think it clearly demonstrates that, with the league’s small starting line-ups and large contingent of highly scored IDP’s, a straight-line draft works without putting any team in the hole.  Please consider also, that NFL.com uses ADP when autopicking, not projected scoring, and also does not value IDP’s as highly as the settings in this league place on them, so a draft with human control would balance the teams even more significantly.
