Fantasy Freaks & Geeks Dynasty

Welcome to FF&G Dynasty fantasy basketball! This league aims to create a deep, realistic fantasy basketball experience for all 30+ participants. This post will be very detailed regarding the ins-and-outs of the league, but if you have any questions do not hesitate to comment or send me a PM. Without further ado, here at the league details!

Lineups and Transactions

Lineups are set semi-weekly (one period begins Monday and another period begins Friday) and players lock one minute before their first game of the period begins.

There is no limit to trades and no vetoing system - however, the commissioner will listen to league feedback and reserves the right to veto a trade that threatens the competitive balance of the league.

The trade deadline is the 16th Thursday of the NBA regular season. For the 2018 season, the trade deadline is 01/31/2019.

FAAB is in play and all free agents will be acquired this way. You will be afforded a $200 budget (minimum bid of $0, bid increments of $1) to use to acquire free agents throughout the season. Bids process on Mondays and Fridays at 2:00PM. If two teams bid the same amount, the lowest ranked team in the standings wins the bid.

Dynasty Format

This league does not employ salaries or contracts. However, a keeper format is employed.

After each year's NBA Finals, teams must select 9 players on their roster to keep for the following year. These players will be tracked on a spreadsheet.

Players may be kept for a maximum of 3 years. However, each year, you may designate 1 of your kept players as a "designated keeper" - this player is kept, yet a year of their 3-year maximum is not used.

Following the keeper selection designations, there will be a period of free-agent bidding. A $500 budget will be assigned to each team and all players that were released by teams (i.e. not kept) will be available to be acquired.

All players still considered rookies by NBA standards at the end of the season may be kept with no penalty (does not count as one of your 9 keepers and does not count as a kept year). This supports teams with deep farm systems.


A 27-round startup draft will be held where rookies and veterans are available to be drafted. It will be a slow draft (1 hour pick clock) and will begin on September 10, 2018 at 10:00AM EST. Pick trading is disallowed throughout the draft. Draft order is randomized.

There will be a rookie draft every year (excluding this, the first year).

  • Rounds: 2

  • Time Limit: 4 minutes

  • Pick Trading: Pick trading is allowed throughout the draft and during the year. Draft picks may be traded for other draft picks or players. Picks may be traded up to 7 years in advance.

  • Draft Order: Draft order will be the reverse order of the standings for the previous year
