I also hate early drafts. If you're interested in my league as follows below let me know.
As the commissioner of a league that unfortunately disbanded after over 10 years I am looking to
re-institute the league after several years of not being able to stand all of the generic leagues like
those found on the NFL, Yahoo, ESPN and CBSSports sites.
If you looking for rules, scoring and a larger player roster unlike those found on the generic sites
mentioned above, I hope you'll take the time to check out what The Playball Fantasy Football League
has to offer, as follows:
DYNASTY- carry over any/all players drafted after the 1st 3 rounds. Any players carried over
will take a draft spot 3 rounds higher in your following years draft at a 20%
increase in salary. ONLY drafted players that remain on a roster continuously throughout
the season are eligible for carry-over.
TEAMS- 12 teams-3 divisions
SALARY CAP- cap is 1.6 million. A player salary list will be provided by the commish for
top players, in descending order, based on their previous years performance.
Typically, the #1 player at each position has a salary at or near 200k. Players
not on the list are available at a minimum salary of 25k. All undrafted players
on the draft day salary list are available when free agent pick-ups start at 1/2
their draft day salary as free agents
MONEY- In the past the league fee has always been $100. We use Myfantasyleague, so there
will be a site fee. ALL of the remainder of the league fee goes into the prize pool.
(Depending on owner input, fee may be set between $50.-$100, just remember, the
higher the fee, the higher the winnings.)
SCHEDULE- Head to head contests, 13 week regular season and 3 weeks of play-offs. We
do not play in week 17 due to NFL teams resting players, etc. in their week 17
DRAFT- Live draft-25 rounds-as close to the beginning of the NFL regular season as possible
depending on owners availability. At no time during the draft or the season will a team
be allowed to exceed the roster or salary cap limits. If an owner has a draft time conflict
they may set up an auto draft list on the site or give same to a friend or the commish to
draft for them but I highly discourage that process. I have seen some really awful,
non-competitive teams drafted that way, especially due to salary cap considerations.
We have always allowed 2 minutes per pick. Although early picks go fast, middle to late
rounds, owners often take the full 2 minutes so a long draft, 5 hours or more, is possible.
At the end of the draft ALL teams must have a legal/complete starting line-up for week 1
of our season. NO free agent pick-ups or trades until after our week 1 games are
ROSTERS- 25 player roster.
STARTING LINE-UPS- 1qb, 2rb, 2wr, 1te, 1pk, 1team def./special teams.
Scoring--other than s/t, int. and fumble return td's, all td's are distance based as are fg's.
Standard -2 points for int's and lost fumbles.
TRANSACTIONS- All transactions, free agent pick-ups and drops, trades and IR/PUP moves
are included in the league fee. No more than 2 free agent pick-ups per
week and only 1 per position per week.(no cornering the market)
.Any player placed on his NFL teams IR/PUP list is eligible for
your IR/PUP and would free up that players roster spot and salary for
your acquiring a free agent to replace him on your roster.
PLAYOFFS- 3 division winners and 3 wild-card teams compete in weeks 14-16 for the league
PRIZES-Based on $100 league fee(minus $90. site fee if league not filled by 7/31)
high game score for the season-$50.
regular season champion---------$100
remainder of prize pool to play-off contenders, as follows:
4th place( 5%($48)
RULES- all league rules posted on the site. Any owner may request a vote to change league
rules by a majority vote, any commissioner rulings may be over turned by a majority
league vote. Any trade, having received complaints from 3 owners, will be brought up
for a league vote.
I think that is enough to give you a fairly good idea about our league. We had a great group of
dedicated and knowledgeable owners in the past and some of them will be returning. I hope to
find owners to match them in ability for a fair and balanced league.
