The Touts 2020

Lists are in order of first-round reserve picks, except for Mixed Draft and Draft and Hold (see notes). Numbers in parens are amount of FAAB on Opening Day, reflecting deductions based on previous year’s finish.

2020 Tout Wars MIXED DRAFT

Tout Wars mandates that each year’s draft order is determined by last year’s finish. Since draft picks are not necessarily valued in the order they come, owners are polled for their preferences of pick. The order is currently the order by which the Touts will express their preference. It will be changed once they have chosen a draft spot.

2020 Tout Wars Draft and Hold

Then, owners from 1 through 15 selected their draft position in order. The order below is the order they will be picking when the slow draft starts on February 18.
