  1. Greetings, My name is Joe and I am the commissioner of the All-American Fantasy Basketball League. This 14-team league is entering its 7th season, and we are in need of one new owner to take over our abandoned team. We are looking to add a very active and competitive owner with integrity and a history of success in fantasy leagues. Here are some of the basic details: - Entry fee of $150. - League run using CBS commissioner service - 100% of the fees go toward paying for the league site and the winner’s pot - Live extended draft during early October - H2H, points-based scoring - Top six teams make playoffs - Weekly add/drops, nightly lineup changes - Teams keep 2 or 3 players from year to year - A team can keep the same player only three consecutive years Here is the roster of the available team. Each team keeps three players, with the option of keeping only two and receiving a supplemental pick before the 1st round of the draft. This team has the 10th pick in the draft: Nikola Jokic C | DEN **Devin Booker G | PHO Julius Randle C | NY CJ McCollum G | POR Buddy Hield G | SAC Steven Adams C | OKC Josh Richardson F,G | PHI Otto Porter Jr. F | CHI DeWayne Dedmon C | SAC Larry Nance Jr. F | CLE Jerami Grant F | DEN Bogdan Bogdanovic G | SAC Noah Vonleh F | MIN Kenrich Williams F | NO Nikola Mirotic C | MIL The players with asterisks by their names have already been kept by their respective team. Two asterisks means the player has been kept twice already, so you will be eligible to keep him one more time (for this season, meaning you would have control of them through the 2019-20 season and would need to trade or relinquish the player before the next keeper deadline in October 2020). The only player this applies to on the available team is Devin Booker. I’ve attached the full constitution below. If interested, please email me at jcaponio@gmail.com. ------------------------ All-American Fantasy Basketball League I. OBJECTIVE: The mission of the A-AFBL is to conduct a game of fantasy basketball in a fun and competitive fashion while maintaining stable franchise ownership from season to season. This league was founded to help us enjoy the game we love to follow, as well as a way to participate in a league with a very high level of activity and competition. II. TEAMS AND OWNERS: The league will consist of 14 owners from across the country. III. FEES: The A-AFBL has a one-time entry fee of $150. This fee covers all transactions and league costs for the entire season. All league fees go towards paying for the league website and winners’ pot (see section XI on payouts). Please send check or money order to the following address (no cash please): Address given out when you join the league. IV. MANAGEMENT: Joe Caponio will serve as commissioner of the league, and the league website will be hosted by CBS Sports’ commissioner service. V. DRAFT PROCESS: Each year, we will hold a live draft over several hours to form our rosters for the upcoming season. Because it is virtually impossible to get 14 owners from across the country online all at one time for a three-hour period, we will hold a “slow” draft, where each team has five hours to make their selection. The draft clock will be suspended overnight to prevent owners from being skipped as they sleep. The commissioner may lower the time of the clock as the draft progresses in an effort to speed up the process. If a team’s clock expires, their pick is skipped until the end of the current round. At that point, the skipped team will have an hour to inform the commissioner of their pick, and the pick will then be entered. If an hour passes and there has been no notification of the makeup pick, the draft will continue and the skipped pick will be made up whenever the owner informs the commissioner of his choice. The draft will be 12 rounds long, as each team will have three players (three keepers or two keepers plus a supplemental pick) going into the draft. The draft order will be based on the results of a “draft bracket.” The eight teams that do not qualify for the playoffs (see section VIII) will be entered into the “draft bracket.” These teams will stage a 3-week, single elimination tournament to determine the draft order for the following season. The winner of the draft bracket will get the first pick in the following year’s draft, the runner-up will receive the second pick, and so on. This is done to encourage teams who fall out of playoff competition to continue to competitively manage their teams for the entire season. The remaining (playoff) teams draft order will be determined based upon how they finished in the playoffs. Picking in reverse order, the GAFHL Champion will pick 14th, the runner-up 13th, etc. down to the 9th place team. The draft will follow a “snake” order, where the team picking first in even-numbered rounds will pick last in odd-numbered rounds. The 2018 draft will start on the morning of Thursday, October 4. VI. KEEPERS: One week prior to each season’s draft, owners must select a minimum of two and maximum of three players to keep off of their roster from the end of the previous season. These can be any two or three players from any position. The deadline for keepers this season is 8 pm on Monday, October 1. If a team only retains two players, it will receive a supplemental pick prior to the regular draft. The pick order of the supplemental draft will be the same as the first round of that year’s regular draft. Teams that choose to keep a third player will not receive a pick in the supplemental draft. The supplemental draft will take place on Tuesday, October 2. Players can be kept by the same team only three consecutive times, meaning a team can control a player for up to four seasons (the year he is drafted/acquired plus the three times he is kept). If a player is traded, he is eligible to be kept another three years by his new team. VII. ROSTERS AND LINEUPS: Each team will field a roster with 15 players. Each team will start eight players each night (1 Center, 2 Forwards, 2 Guards, and 3 Flex players at any position). Teams can change their lineups nightly throughout the game period. Lineups lock in five minutes before the first NBA game each night. VIII. DIVISIONS, SCHEDULE, AND PLAYOFFS: There will be two divisions of 7 teams, with the division alignment being based on the geographical location of the owners of each team. Each team will play 21 regular season games, head-to-head against a different opponent each week (Monday through Sunday). Teams will play each other team once (13 total games), and will play one team from its own division twice. At the end of the 21-week regular season, the top six teams will advance to the league playoffs. The league standings are in order of winning percentage. The first standings tie-breaker is head-to-head record, and the second tie-breaker is total fantasy points scored. The team with the best overall record will receive the top seed in the playoffs, as well as a first-round bye. The team that wins the other division will receive the #2 seed, and the other first-round bye. The four teams with the next best records will be seeded #3-#6 as the wild cards, and compete in the first round of the playoffs, with the #3 team playing the #6 team, and the #4 team playing the #5 team. The lowest seeded winner from the first round will advance to play the #1 seed in the semifinals, while the higher seeded opening round winner will advance to play the #2 seed. The two semifinal winners will play each other for the A-AFBL championship. IX. SCORING SYSTEM: The A-AFBL will follow a head-to-head, points-based scoring system, outlined here: Point = .1 fantasy point Rebound = .15 fp Assist = .2 fp Steal = .2 fp Block = .2 fp Turnover = -.1 fp The team with the highest total number of fantasy points at the end of the week will get the win for that week. In the result of a tie, the team with the most total fantasy points from their bench will be declared the winner. X. TRANSACTIONS: Waiver Signings: Teams are allowed an unlimited number of free agent/waiver signings per season. These are included in the league fee. Waiver pickups: Following the draft, every player not drafted will be placed on waivers. Teams will have the ability to place claims on any non-drafted player during this time. After that, CBS will place claimed players on teams based on the waiver order. To start the season, the waiver order will be the reverse of the draft order. During the season, any player cut from a team will be placed on waivers, as well as all other free agents. Teams can put in claims for them, and the waiver order during the season is the reverse of the league standings. Waivers will run once a week, every Sunday night. This is done to prevent teams from adding players daily throughout the week, just to use them when they have a free spot in their lineup. Trades: Teams are allowed to trade players at any time. You can only trade draft picks for an upcoming draft once you have paid your league fee for the upcoming season. All trades must be passed by the Trade Committee. This committee will be made up of five owners each year. Should they reject a trade, the owners will be asked to redo the deal so that it passes through the committee. If a trade vote is tied, the commissioner will step in and have the deciding vote. There will be a trade deadline imposed on midnight of the same day as the NBA trade deadline (February 18 this season), to stop any late-season trades that may involve collusion. XI. PAYOUTS: All the money paid in the league fees goes towards the league payouts, with the exception of the $100 CBS charges to host the site. So, with 14 teams putting in $150, the total pot comes out to $2,100. After subtracting the $100 for CBS, we are left with $2,000 for payouts. The prize money will be broken down as follows: • League Champion: $900 • Runner Up: $400 • Best Overall Regular Season Record: $400 • Other Division Winner: $300 Therefore, it is possible that a team finishing with the best overall regular season record and winning the league championship could win $1,300.
  2. Hello everyone, My name is Joe and I am the commissioner of the Great American Fantasy Hockey League. This 14-team league is entering its 2nd season, and we are in need of an owner to take over our abandoned team. We are looking to add only very active and competitive owners with integrity and a history of success in fantasy leagues. Here are some quick, basic details: - Entry fee of $150 - League run using CBS commissioner service - 100% of the fees go toward paying for the league site and the winner’s pot - Live extended draft during late September - H2H, points-based scoring - Top six teams make playoffs - Weekly add/drops, daily lineup changes - Teams keep 3 players from year to year - A team can keep the same player only three consecutive years Here is the roster of the available team. Each team keeps three players. You can only keep the same player three consecutive years, but as this is just the second year of the league, no player has been kept yet: Steven Stamkos C | TB Carter Hart G | PHI Torey Krug D | BOS Claude Giroux C | PHI Kyle Connor LW | WPG Ryan Nugent-Hopkins C | EDM Patrik Laine RW | WPG Sam Reinhart C | BUF Jonathan Quick G | LA Zach Werenski D | CLB Pavel Buchnevich LW | NYR Jakob Silfverberg RW | ANA Clayton Keller C | ARI Vince Dunn D | STL Charlie McAvoy D | BOS T.J. Brodie D | CGY Marc-Edouard Vlasic D | SJ Nick Foligno LW | CLB Tyson Jost C | COL Warren Foegele LW | CAR Sven Andrighetto RW | COL Ty Rattie RW | EDM This team will have the 8th pick in the upcoming draft. I’ve attached the full constitution below. If interested, please email me at jcaponio@gmail.com. Serious, experienced owners only please. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Great American Fantasy Hockey League I. OBJECTIVE: The mission of the GAFHL is to conduct a game of fantasy hockey in a fun and competitive fashion while maintaining stable franchise ownership from season to season. This league was founded to help us enjoy the game we love to follow, as well as a way to participate in a league with a very high level of activity and competition. II. TEAMS AND OWNERS: The league will consist of 14 owners from across North America. III. FEES: The GAFHL has a one-time entry fee of $150. This fee covers all transactions and league costs for the entire season. All league fees go towards paying for the league website and winners’ pot (see section XI on payouts). Please send check or money order to the following address (no cash please): Address given out when you join the league. IV. MANAGEMENT: Joe Caponio will serve as commissioner of the league, and the league website will be hosted by CBS Sports’ commissioner service. V. DRAFT PROCESS: Each year, we will hold a live draft over several days to form our rosters for the upcoming season. Because it is virtually impossible to get 14 owners from across the continent online all at one time for a three-hour period, we will hold a “slow” draft, where each team has four hours to make their selection. The draft clock will be suspended overnight to prevent owners from being skipped as they sleep. The commissioner may lower the time of the clock as the draft progresses in an effort to speed up the process. If a team’s clock expires, their pick is skipped until the end of the current round. At that point, the skipped team will have an hour to inform the commissioner of their pick, and the pick will then be entered. If an hour passes and there has been no notification of the makeup pick, the draft will continue and the skipped pick will be made up whenever the owner informs the commissioner of his choice. Starting in 2019, the draft will be only 19 rounds as each team will have three players (keepers) going into the draft. The draft order is based on the results of a “draft bracket.” The eight teams that do not qualify for the playoffs (see section VIII) will be entered into the “draft bracket.” These teams will stage a 3-week, single elimination tournament to determine the draft order for the following season. The winner of the draft bracket will get the first pick in the following year’s draft, the runner-up will receive the second pick, and so on. This is done to encourage teams who fall out of playoff competition to continue to competitively manage their teams for the entire season. The remaining (playoff) teams draft order will be determined based upon how they finished in the playoffs. Picking in reverse order, the GAFHL Cup Champion will pick 14th, the runner-up 13th, etc., down to the 9th place team. The draft will follow a “snake” order, where the team picking first in even-numbered rounds will pick last in odd-numbered rounds. The 2019 draft will start on the morning of Thursday, September 19. VI. KEEPERS: One week prior to each season’s draft, owners must select three players to keep off of their roster from the end of the previous season. These can be three players from any position. Players can be kept by the same team only three consecutive times, meaning a team can control a player for up to four seasons (the year he is drafted/acquired plus the three times he is kept). If a player is traded, he is eligible to be kept another three years by his new team. VII. ROSTERS AND LINEUPS: Each team will field a roster with 22 players. Each team will start 14 players each night (2 Centers, 2 Left Wingers, 2 Right Wingers, 4 Defensemen, 1 Goalkeeper, and 3 Flex Skaters). Teams can change their lineups nightly throughout the game period. Lineups lock in five minutes before the first NHL game each day. VIII. DIVISIONS, SCHEDULE, AND PLAYOFFS: There will be two divisions of 7 teams, with the division alignment being based on the geographical location of the owners of each team. Each team will play 23 regular season games, head-to-head against a different opponent each week (Monday through Sunday). At the end of the 23-week regular season, the top six teams will advance to the league playoffs. The league standings are in order of winning percentage. The first standings tie-breaker is total fantasy points scored, and the second head-to-head record. The team with the best overall record will receive the top seed in the playoffs, as well as a first-round bye. The team that wins the other division will receive the #2 seed, and the other first-round bye. The four teams with the next best records will be seeded #3-#6 as the wild cards, and compete in the first round of the playoffs, with the #3 team playing the #6 team, and the #4 team playing the #5 team. The lowest seeded winner from the first round will advance to play the #1 seed in the semifinals, while the higher seeded opening round winner will advance to play the #2 seed. The two semifinal winners will play each other for the GAFHL Cup. IX. SCORING SYSTEM: The GAFHL will follow a head-to-head, points-based scoring system, outlined here: Forwards: A Assists 3 points BS Blocked Shots 0.2 points FOL Face-offs lost -0.1 points FOW Face-offs won 0.1 points G Goals 5 points Hits Hits 0.2 points PIM Penalty Minutes -0.3 points SOG Shots on Goal 0.4 points Defensemen: A Assists 4 points BS Blocked Shots 0.2 points FOL Face-offs lost -0.1 points FOW Face-offs won 0.1 points G Goals 7 points Hits Hits 0.2 points PIM Penalty Minutes -0.3 points SOG Shots on Goal 0.4 points Goaltenders: GA Goals Against -3 points GGP Games Played 3 points W Wins 5 points L Losses -3 points S Saves 0.4 points SO Shut Outs 3 points The team with the highest total number of fantasy points at the end of the week will get the win for that week. In the result of a tie, the team with the most total fantasy points from their bench will be declared the winner. X. TRANSACTIONS: Waiver Signings: Teams are allowed an unlimited number of free agent/waiver signings per season. These are included in the league fee. Waiver pickups: Following the draft, every player not drafted will be placed on waivers. Teams will have the ability to place claims on any non-drafted player during this time. After that, CBS will place claimed players on teams based on the waiver order. To start the season, the waiver order will be the reverse of the draft order. During the season, any player cut from a team will be placed on waivers, as well as all other free agents. Teams can put in claims for them, and the waiver order during the season is the reverse of the league standings. Waivers will run once a week, every Sunday night. This is done to prevent teams from adding players daily throughout the week, just to use them when they have a free spot in their lineup. Injury replacements: If a player gets injured and placed on the NHL injured reserve in the middle of the week, their fantasy team can place them on the inactive list and pick up a player to replace them in the middle of the week, without going through waivers. Trades: Teams are allowed to trade players at any time. You can only trade draft picks for an upcoming draft once you have paid your league fee for the upcoming season. All trades must be passed by the Trade Committee. This committee will be made up of five owners each year. Should they reject a trade, the owners will be asked to redo the deal so that it passes through the committee. If a trade vote is tied, the commissioner will step in and have the deciding vote. There will be a trade deadline imposed on midnight of the same day as the NHL trade deadline, to stop any late-season trades that may involve collusion. XI. PAYOUTS: All the money paid in the league fees goes towards the league payouts, with the exception of the $150 CBS charges to host the site. So, with 14 teams putting in $150, the total pot comes out to $2,100. After subtracting the $100 for CBS, we are left with $2,000 for payouts. The prize money will be broken down as follows: • Cup Champion: $900 • Cup Runner Up: $450 • Best Overall Regular Season Record: $450 • Other Division Winner: $200 Therefore, it is possible that a team finishing with the best overall regular season record and winning the Cup Championship could win $1,350.
  3. Greetings, My name is Joe and I am the commissioner of the All-American Fantasy Football Association. This 14-team league is entering its 9th season, and we are in need of an owner to take over an abandoned team. We are looking to add only a very active and competitive owner with integrity and a history of success in fantasy leagues. Here are some quick, basic details: • Entry fee of $150. • League run using CBS commissioner service. • 100% of the fees go toward paying for the league site the winner’s pot. • Live extended draft during the last week of August. • Each team plays two head-to-head matchups per week. • Top six teams make playoffs. • Basic scoring .5 PPR (non-PPR, defense/ST teams, not individuals). • Teams keep three players from year to year. The available team has the 7th pick in the draft (8th pick in even-numbered rounds). Here is the roster of the available team from the end of last season. You would keep three players from this list (unless you make a trade; see below): QB Russell Wilson QB Matt Ryan RB Derrick Henry RB Jordan Howard RB LeGarrette Blount WR Odell Beckham WR Mike Williams WR DeSean Jackson WR Marquise Goodwin WR Kenny Stills WR Donte Moncrief WR Michael Gallup WR Dez Bryant TE Jordan Reed TE Hunter Henry PK Wil Lutz DT Houston Texans DT Denver Broncos The likely choices for keepers here are Beckham, Wilson, and Ryan. That wouldn’t be the best set of keepers in the league, but it also wouldn’t be close to the worst. Either way this is a good opportunity to get in to a great league and start building a team from the ground up, if you’re up to that sort of challenge. And there will be plenty of chances to quickly improve the team, as all owners are very active when it comes to trades. To see the other rosters, as well as all other league details, check out the league site at http://a-affa.football.cbssports.com/ I’ve attached the full constitution below. If interested, please post here or email me at jcaponio@gmail. Again, serious, experienced owners only please. ------------------------------- I. PURPOSE The mission of the All-American Fantasy Football Association is to conduct a game of fantasy football in a fun and competitive fashion while maintaining stable franchise ownership from season to season. This league is being founded to help us enjoy the game we love to follow, as well as a way to participate in a league with a very high level of activity and competition. Every team and owner is a vital part of that process and is essential to the success of the league. II. TEAMS AND OWNERS The league will consist of 14 owners from across the country, divided into two divisions (East and West) of seven teams. III. LEAGUE FEES The All-American Fantasy Football Association has a one-time entry fee of $150.00. This fee covers all transactions and league costs for the entire season. All league fees go towards paying for the league website and winners’ pot (see section XIII). Please send check or money order to the following address (no cash please): (Address given out when you join the league) You can also pay using PayPal or Venmo. IV. MANAGEMENT Joe Caponio will serve as commissioner of the league, and the league website will be hosted by CBS Sports’ commissioner service. V. DRAFT PROCESS Each year, we will hold a live draft over several days to form our rosters for the upcoming season. Because it is virtually impossible to get 14 owners from across the country online all at one time for a three-hour period, we will hold a “slow” draft, where each team has five hours to make their selection. The draft will be held on the “Draft Room” on the league’s CBS website. There is a link to the "Draft Room" in the Draft Prep box of the league homepage. Your computer will have to have a Java application enabled to work. It's always a good idea to test out the room to make sure it works on your computer in the days before the draft. Once the draft begins, each team will have five hours to make their pick. This seems like a long time, but it goes pretty quick with guys having limited access to the Internet at work and on the road. The timer will be suspended every night between 12:15 a.m. and 8 a.m. Eastern so that owners don't get skipped because their pick comes up in the middle of the night while they're sleeping. Should a team's clock run out during the day, that pick will be skipped until the end of the round. Once the current round is complete, the skipped team will have two hours to make up their selection. If they don't pick within two hours, they will be skipped again until the end of the next round. The 2019 draft will be 15 rounds, and will start at 8 am on August 23. Teams will select 15 players to go with their three keepers (see section VII). Setting the clock to a maximum of five hours will allow us to complete about two rounds per day. On that pace, we should be done in a week to ten days, which would leave a couple of days between the end of the draft and the start of the season for teams to tinker with their rosters through free agency and trades. Trades during the draft must go through the trade committee before they are approved, just like they would during the season (see section X). VI. DRAFT ORDER The draft order will be based on the results of a “draft bracket.” The eight teams that do not qualify for the playoffs (see section XII) will be entered into the “draft bracket.” These teams will stage a 3-week, (weeks 14-16) single elimination tournament to determine the draft order for the following season. The winner of the draft bracket will get the first pick in the following year’s draft, the runner-up will receive the second pick, and so on. This is done to encourage teams who fall out of playoff contention to continue to competitively manage their teams for the entire season. The draft order for the remaining (playoff) teams will be determined based upon how they finished in the playoffs. Picking in reverse order, the All-American Fantasy Football Association champion will pick 14th, the runner-up 13th, and so on, down to the team with the 9th pick. The draft will follow a “snake” order, where the team picking first in even-numbered rounds will pick last in odd-numbered rounds. VII. KEEPERS One week prior to each season’s draft, owners will select three players to keep off of their roster from the end of the previous season. These can be any three players from any position. VIII. ROSTERS AND LINEUPS Each team’s roster will consist of 18 players. Of those 18, teams will start 9 players in each of their matchups. The starting lineup will consist of the following positions: • 1 Quarterback • 2 Running Backs • 2 Wide Receivers • 1 Tight End • 1 Flex Player (RB, WR, or TE) • 1 Place Kicker • 1 Team Defense The nine reserve players on a team’s bench can be from any position. The deadline to move players in and out of a team’s starting lineup is five minutes prior to the start of that players’ game. IX. FREE AGENT SIGNINGS Waiver Signings: Teams are allowed an unlimited number of free agent/waiver signings per season. These are included in the league fee. Waiver pickups: Following the draft, every player not drafted will be placed on waivers. Teams will have the ability to place claims on any non-drafted player during this time. After the 48-hour timeframe, CBS will place claimed players on teams based on the waiver order. To start the season, the waiver order will be the reverse of the draft order. During the season, any player cut from a team will be placed on waivers. Teams can put in claims for them, and the waiver order during the season is the reverse of the league standings. Waivers will run nightly, with claims being processed when CBS updates the league page around 2 a.m. EST. All players who are not on waivers are available to be signed by teams on a first-come, first served basis. There is no limit on the number of signings a team can make throughout the season. The weekly deadline to sign players is five minutes before the first game of the NFL week. Teams can then sign players again starting on Tuesday morning. X. TRADES Teams are allowed to trade players at any time. You can only trade draft picks for an upcoming draft once you have paid your league fee for the upcoming season. All trades must be passed by the Trade Committee. This committee will be made up of five owners each year. Every time two teams agree to a trade, the commissioner will send an e-mail to each member of the committee asking if they believe the trade should be allowed. If the committee member votes no, he must provide a valid reason for doing so. Members should only vote no to trades when they feel it is a lopsided deal that may be unfair to the competitive nature of the league. If a member thinks the trade should pass, they will simply reply to the e-mail by saying "yes". The committee members will have 24 hours from the time the commissioner sends out the e-mail to respond with a vote. A trade receiving a majority (three or more) “yes” votes will be passed. Trades not receiving this majority of “yes” votes will be vetoed. If one of the committee members makes a trade, he will not be allowed to vote on his own deal. In that case, there will be only four votes from the committee. Three or four “yes” votes would pass the deal. Should there be two “yes” votes and two “no” votes, the commissioner will step in and have the tiebreaking vote. In a trade involving two owners where there are only three voting members, a trade receiving two or three “yes” votes will pass, while a trade receiving one or zero will not. Should the committee reject a trade with a majority of “no” votes, the owners will be asked to redo the deal so that it passes through the committee. There will be a trade deadline imposed in November to stop any late-season trades that may involve collusion. XI. SCORING Quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, tight ends, and kickers will earn points based on the following scoring system: • Passing touchdown = 4 points • Passing yard = .04 points (1 point for every 25 yards) • Passing 2-point conversion: 2 points • Interception thrown: -2 points • Rushing touchdown = 6 points • Rushing yard = .1 points (1 point for every 10 yards) • Rushing two-point conversion: 2 points • Fumble lost = -2 points • Receiving touchdown = 6 points • Receiving yard = .1 points (1 point for every 10 yards) • Reception = .5 points • Receiving two-point conversion = 2 points • Field goal made of 0-49 yards = 3 points • Field goal made of 50+ yards = 4 points • Extra point field goal made = 1 point Defense/special teams will earn points based on the following scoring system: • Defensive and special teams touchdown = 6 points • Interception = 2 points • Fumble recovered = 2 points • Safety = 2 points • Sack = .5 points • Shutout = 6 points • 2-5 points allowed = 4 points • 6-9 points allowed = 2 points • 10-13 points allowed = 1 points • 14-20 points allowed = 0 points • 21-27 points allowed = -2 points • 28-34 points allowed = -4 points • 35-41 points allowed = -6 points • 42 or more points allowed = -8 points The team that scores the most points from its nine starting players in each matchup will be declared the winner. In cases where the two teams playing each other score the same amount of points during the week, the team with the most points from its reserves will be declared the winner. If the total number of reserve points are identical between the two teams, the home team will be declared the winner. There will be no ties. XII. DIVISIONS, SCHEDULE, AND PLAYOFFS The 14 teams in the league will be divided into two seven-team divisions. The divisions will be based on the geographic location of each owner. The league’s regular season will run during the first 13 weeks of the NFL season. Each week, each team will play two head-to-head games against different opponents, for a total of 26 during the regular season. Teams will play each other team in the league two times. At the end of the 26-game regular season, the two division winners and top four other teams will advance to the playoffs, to take place during weeks 14 through 16 of the NFL season. The league standings will be in order of winning percentage. The first standings tiebreaker is head-to-head record, and the second tiebreaker is total points scored during the season. Week 14 – Wild-Card Week: The division winner with the best overall record will receive the top seed in the playoffs, as well as a first-round bye during week 14. The team that wins the other division will receive the #2 seed, and the other first-round bye. The four teams with the next best records will be seeded #3-#6 as the wild cards, and compete in the first round of the playoffs, with the #3 team playing the #6 team, and the #4 team playing the #5 team. Week 15 – Semifinal Week: The lowest seeded winner from the first round will advance to play the #1 seed in the semifinals, while the higher seeded first round winner will advance to play the #2 seed. Week 16 – Super Bowl: The All-American Fantasy Football Association Super Bowl will be played between the winners of the Semifinal games. XIII. PAYOUTS With 14 teams putting in a fee of $150, the league pot comes out to $2,100. However, CBS charges $150 to run the league, so the pot comes out to $1,950. The money will be split up as follows: • The team with the best regular season record will get $400 • The other division winner will get $250 • The runner up in the finals gets $400 • The league champion gets $900 Therefore, it is possible that I team will receive up to $1,300 if they finish with the best regular season record and win the championship. XIV. COMMISSIONER POWERS The Commissioner will act at all times in the best interests of the league and is vested with the following powers: • The commissioner may deem necessary to remove inactive owners from the league at the end of the season. The commissioner will not do this unless a team fails to submit a lineup, plays injured players regularly or does not submit lineups in time. Other events may also be cause for removal and will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis. • The commissioner has the power to change a 'loophole' rule during the season. Any such rule will be changed under the "good of the league" general rule. • At any time, any owner can recommend a rule/policy change. The commissioner is open to all ideas, and will put anything presented to him up for discussion among all league owners.
  4. Payment from all owners is due by September 26. The commissioner holds the money and then sends out payment to the winners the day after the NBA regular season ends. You can pay by PayPal, Venmo, or check mailed to the commissioner. Lineup changes are allowed daily, but add/drops are only once a week. This prevents guys from picking up crap players every day just to fill their lineup with players who have games that night. It also means that each team can use only the 15 players they have on their roster going into the week, which balances the total number of games played for each team.
  5. Greetings, My name is Joe and I am the commissioner of the All-American Fantasy Basketball League. This 14-team league is entering its 6th season, and we are in need of one owner to take over our lone abandoned team. We are looking to add only a very active and competitive owner with a history of success in fantasy leagues. Here are some quick, basic details: - Entry fee of $150 - League run using CBS commissioner service - 100% of the fees go toward paying for the league site and the winner’s pot - Live extended draft during early October - H2H, points-based scoring - Top six teams make playoffs - Weekly add/drops, nightly lineup changes - Teams keep 2 or 3 players from year to year - A team can keep the same player only three consecutive years Here is the roster of the available team, listed in order of projected fantasy points for the upcoming season. You would keep three of these players, with the option of keeping only two and receiving a supplemental pick before the first round of the draft (of course, you could trade these players or picks before the draft and keep different players you acquire): *Kevin Love C | CLE Donovan Mitchell SG | UTA *DeAndre Jordan C | DAL Jusuf Nurkic C | POR D'Angelo Russell PG | BKN Harrison Barnes PF | DAL De'Aaron Fox PG | SAC Tyreke Evans SG | IND Buddy Hield SG | SAC Patty Mills PG | SA Kyle Kuzma PF | LAL Justin Holiday SG | CHI Zach Randolph PF | SAC Yogi Ferrell SG | SAC Austin Rivers SG | WAS The players with asterisks by their names have already been kept by the team’s previous owners. There are no players on the available team who have been kept two or three times. One asterisk means he’s been kept once already, so you can keep him two more times (once this year, and once again next October, meaning you could have him through the end of the 2019–20 season). This applies to Kevin Love and DeAndre Jordan on the available team. I’ve attached the full constitution below. If interested, please email me at jcaponio@gmail.com. Serious, experienced owners only please. Thank you, Joe ------------------------------------------------------------------------ All-American Fantasy Basketball League I. OBJECTIVE: The mission of the A-AFBL is to conduct a game of fantasy basketball in a fun and competitive fashion while maintaining stable franchise ownership from season to season. This league was founded to help us enjoy the game we love to follow, as well as a way to participate in a league with a very high level of activity and competition. II. TEAMS AND OWNERS: The league will consist of 14 owners from across the country. III. FEES: The A-AFBL has a one-time entry fee of $150. This fee covers all transactions and league costs for the entire season. All league fees go towards paying for the league website and winners’ pot (see section XI on payouts). Please send check or money order to the following address (no cash please): Address given out when you join the league. IV. MANAGEMENT: Joe Caponio will serve as commissioner of the league, and the league website will be hosted by CBS Sports’ commissioner service. V. DRAFT PROCESS: Each year, we will hold a live draft over several hours to form our rosters for the upcoming season. Because it is virtually impossible to get 14 owners from across the country online all at one time for a three-hour period, we will hold a “slow” draft, where each team has five hours to make their selection. The draft clock will be suspended overnight to prevent owners from being skipped as they sleep. The commissioner may lower the time of the clock as the draft progresses in an effort to speed up the process. If a team’s clock expires, their pick is skipped until the end of the current round. At that point, the skipped team will have an hour to inform the commissioner of their pick, and the pick will then be entered. If an hour passes and there has been no notification of the makeup pick, the draft will continue and the skipped pick will be made up whenever the owner informs the commissioner of his choice. The draft will be 12 rounds long, as each team will have three players (three keepers or two keepers plus a supplemental pick) going into the draft. The draft order will be based on the results of a “draft bracket.” The eight teams that do not qualify for the playoffs (see section VIII) will be entered into the “draft bracket.” These teams will stage a 3-week, single elimination tournament to determine the draft order for the following season. The winner of the draft bracket will get the first pick in the following year’s draft, the runner-up will receive the second pick, and so on. This is done to encourage teams who fall out of playoff competition to continue to competitively manage their teams for the entire season. The remaining (playoff) teams draft order will be determined based upon how they finished in the playoffs. Picking in reverse order, the A-AFBL Champion will pick 14th, the runner-up 13th, etc. down to the 9th place team. The draft will follow a “snake” order, where the team picking first in even-numbered rounds will pick last in odd-numbered rounds. The 2018 draft will start on the morning of Thursday, October 4. VI. KEEPERS: One week prior to each season’s draft, owners must select a minimum of two and maximum of three players to keep off of their roster from the end of the previous season. These can be any two or three players from any position. The deadline for keepers this season is 8 pm on Monday, October 1. If a team only retains two players, it will receive a supplemental pick prior to the regular draft. The pick order of the supplemental draft will be the same as the first round of that year’s regular draft. Teams that choose to keep a third player will not receive a pick in the supplemental draft. The supplemental draft will take place on Tuesday, October 2. Players can be kept by the same team only three consecutive times, meaning a team can control a player for up to four seasons (the year he is drafted/acquired plus the three times he is kept). If a player is traded, he is eligible to be kept another three years by his new team. VII. ROSTERS AND LINEUPS: Each team will field a roster with 15 players. Each team will start eight players each night (1 Center, 2 Forwards, 2 Guards, and 3 Flex players at any position). Teams can change their lineups nightly throughout the game period. Lineups lock in five minutes before the first NBA game each night. VIII. DIVISIONS, SCHEDULE, AND PLAYOFFS: There will be two divisions of 7 teams, with the division alignment being based on the geographical location of the owners of each team. Each team will play 21 regular season games, head-to-head against a different opponent each week (Monday through Sunday). Teams will play each other team once (13 total games), and will play one team from its own division twice. At the end of the 21-week regular season, the top six teams will advance to the league playoffs. The league standings are in order of winning percentage. The first standings tie-breaker is head-to-head record, and the second tie-breaker is total fantasy points scored. The team with the best overall record will receive the top seed in the playoffs, as well as a first-round bye. The team that wins the other division will receive the #2 seed, and the other first-round bye. The four teams with the next best records will be seeded #3-#6 as the wild cards, and compete in the first round of the playoffs, with the #3 team playing the #6 team, and the #4 team playing the #5 team. The lowest seeded winner from the first round will advance to play the #1 seed in the semifinals, while the higher seeded opening round winner will advance to play the #2 seed. The two semifinal winners will play each other for the A-AFBL championship. IX. SCORING SYSTEM: The A-AFBL will follow a head-to-head, points-based scoring system, outlined here: Point = .1 fantasy point Rebound = .15 fp Assist = .2 fp Steal = .2 fp Block = .2 fp Turnover = -.1 fp The team with the highest total number of fantasy points at the end of the week will get the win for that week. In the result of a tie, the team with the most total fantasy points from their bench will be declared the winner. X. TRANSACTIONS: Waiver Signings: Teams are allowed an unlimited number of free agent/waiver signings per season. These are included in the league fee. Waiver pickups: Following the draft, every player not drafted will be placed on waivers. Teams will have the ability to place claims on any non-drafted player during this time. After that, CBS will place claimed players on teams based on the waiver order. To start the season, the waiver order will be the reverse of the draft order. During the season, any player cut from a team will be placed on waivers, as well as all other free agents. Teams can put in claims for them, and the waiver order during the season is the reverse of the league standings. Waivers will run once a week, every Sunday night. This is done to prevent teams from adding players daily throughout the week, just to use them when they have a free spot in their lineup. Trades: Teams are allowed to trade players at any time. You can only trade draft picks for an upcoming draft once you have paid your league fee for the upcoming season. All trades must be passed by the Trade Committee. This committee will be made up of five owners each year. Should they reject a trade, the owners will be asked to redo the deal so that it passes through the committee. If a trade vote is tied, the commissioner will step in and have the deciding vote. There will be a trade deadline imposed on midnight of the same day as the NBA trade deadline (February 18 this season), to stop any late-season trades that may involve collusion. XI. PAYOUTS: All the money paid in the league fees goes towards the league payouts, with the exception of the $100 CBS charges to host the site. So, with 14 teams putting in $150, the total pot comes out to $2,100. After subtracting the $100 for CBS, we are left with $2,000 for payouts. The prize money will be broken down as follows: • League Champion: $900 • Runner Up: $400 • Best Overall Regular Season Record: $400 • Other Division Winner: $300 Therefore, it is possible that a team finishing with the best overall regular season record and winning the league championship could win $1,300.

Each team keeps three players, with the option of keeping only two and receiving a supplemental pick before the first round of the draft: Team A (6th pick): Kevin Love*, Donovan Mitchell, DeAndre Jordan*, D’Angelo Russell, Harrison Barnes, De’Aaron Fox The players with asterisks by their names have already been kept by their respective team. Three asterisks means the player cannot be kept by the team again, but they can be traded before the draft. Two asterisks means the player has been kept twice already, so you will be eligible to keep him one more time (for this season, meaning you would have control of them through the 2018-19 season). There are no players on the available team who have been kept two or three times.
