Nobody wants to lose players they like, obviously, when the expansion draft comes to town, but if life were fair and rainbows really were made by Jesus as a cosmic "my bad", I'd have an iPhone 6 Plus in my hot little hands right now.
In case you are wondering: I don't, therefore life is unfair and the draft must go on. Pretty flawless logic, really.
So, quick expansion draft rules for those afraid to use a search engine:
- No more than two players can be picked from any one team.
- Teams can protect 11 players, Generation Adidas and Homegrown players are automatically protected and do not count against the 11.
- Once a player from a team is drafted, the team may now protect an additional player.
Now that you know how it works: strategize away! Who are your protected 11? Who gets drafted first? Who is your 12th protected man? Who could get drafted next?
