Question of the Week: Is it possible for me to do a startup draft and then have a separate draft for rookies only? We plan to do an email draft.
Answer: Yes, this is doable in redraft leagues! Below is an example flow to follow that works well with email drafts:
1) Set your roster requirements for total number of roster spots you want to fill via League Settings > Edit Roster Requirements (startup roster + rookie roster = total roster spots)
2) When you are ready to start your first draft for your initial startup players, go to League Settings > Edit Draft Options and choose the option to start the email draft; be sure to communicate to the league not to go beyond the round where you want to stop the draft.
3) When you reach the point where you want to stop drafting the startup players, go to League Settings > Edit Draft Options and choose “No draft, I’ll import the rosters” and click Save to stop the draft.
4) When you are ready to start the rookie draft, go to League Settings > Edit Draft Options and choose the email draft option again; the draft will start back up right where you left off.
