16 Team $50 Redraft H2H Points with Slow Draft - Fantrax

Recommended Posts

Field of Teams is a Fantrax $50 (plus Fantrax fee of $5 ($80/16)) 16-team redraft H2H points league (weekly lineup changes) for 2020, that will fill teams with a slow snake draft.  We'll use Fantrax Treasurer. The teams will be split into two divisions (Shoeless Joe and Moonlight Graham).  There will be six playoff teams - the two division winners (who receive first-round byes) and the teams with the next four best records (regardless of division).

Payouts will be:  $150 for each division winner; $75 each for the next two best records; $50 each for the next two best records.  The winner of the playoffs gets an extra $100, with the loser getting $50.  The team with the most regular season total points (regardless of H2H record) gets $100. 

The goal is a fun, competitive league with no drama.  League includes features that I (and hopefully you) like:

- at least 6, and possibly 7, teams get paid, so good chance to be in money

- playoffs end with two weeks to go in regular season so as to avoid randomness of final two weeks when many MLB teams are out of it

- daily free agent claims based on standings – so no unfairness of first come, first served

- 12 start limit to minimize streaming

- slow draft that makes it easy on busy schedules

Leave your e-mail if you would like an invite.  Goal is to fill and start draft on Feb. 18.  But can move up once league is filled and all are paid.

Thanks.
