Yeah. I'll explain how we did things in the league I'm in though it's a bit different than the norm. We use salaries, a cap, 3 year contracts and 40 man rosters.There were 10 teams. Me and 2 others were coming into the league. The other 7 teams got to protect 10 players each. The three new teams then got to take turns drafting from the players available from the 3 defunct teams and the other unprotected players. Drafting these players meant you picked up the remainder of the contract. After you took a player from someones team, that team got to protect 2 more players. If a 2nd player was taken from that same team, the guy got to protect 3 more players for a total of 15. So the 3 expansion teams drafted until they had 15, then the regular draft started.
