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.
