So if everything is running as normal, if I have protected five players from each team- they will all be placed on rosters pre-draft - When the live draft begins will it start with the draft order I input for the first round or the sixth? Don't want to give the person who won my league last year the first pick in the sixth!!!! Any help is greatly appreciated-

We are drafting on the 23rd and there wont be much time for redrafting!!!

That is a good question.

If you do 5 protections, they effectively will take up the first 5 rounds. If you have set a draft order, I'd expect it to pick up with that draft order in round 6, but I can double check that in the morning to make sure.

EDIT: Okay, you got me curious, so I just logged into work and checked. While I didn't run a test draft, eyeballing the code seems to support what I said. In the case you described, rounds 1 through 5 will be protections. Round 6 will use the draft order you specify. Round 7 will use the reverse of the draft order you specify. And so on.
