Dynasty Start-Up Draft Order?

Hi everyone!

I’m planning on creating a dynasty league with some friends and we wanted to do the start-up draft before the 2021 NFL Draft in about a month. That way, we could have two drafts: start-up and rookie.

However, I don’t know how to set the draft order for either of these drafts, given we haven’t yet played a season. What do I do for ordering both drafts?


I did this last year before the draft and ended up settling on random order snake for the start up and inverse start up order snake for the first rookie (who ever picks 1.12 in the start up draft gets the rookie 1.01).

Seems to have worked out well, from there forward every rookie draft is linear based off total points for the people that didn’t make the playoffs and finish order for those that did.
