My league mates and I are trying to think of the best way to expand from 12 teams to 14 or 16 teams.

Some noteworthy details: Its a keeper league where each team keeps up to 5 players and the team loses his pick in the draft in which the player kept was taken in the previous year's draft.

One idea we came up with would be for the current teams to make their cuts down to their keepers.

Then we would hold an expansion draft for the four new teams where they will get to pick one player first before the draft day. Maybe a couple of weeks out.

Then the new teams would get an extra pick during rounds 3, 5, 7, 9 (to get their 5 players) to make up for the keepers we got.

The new teams would draft 13, 14, 15, & 16 in order. We would let them draw numbers for spots, randomly assign, or assign spots at a first come first serve basis.

Does that sound about right or is there an easy way to do it?

- I've done some searching, but if you know of a thread that already addresses this, please point me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance.
