It makes sense to clear up the rules of our draft.
Apologies if this is elsewhere but could you summarise the rules of this, I.e roster (limits if any- starting formation, bench, TE flex etc) , overall format schedule , tie breakers, policy on positions I filled etc
Our league will have the following allowed starting position
1 FLEX Howeever it can include WR/RB/TE the TE addition is different than the original league.
It will comprise of two equal divisions which I have named Davis and Saunders after two of my favorite RB’S. This is different than the original league as the original league uses four.
What I forsee that this will do is create more rivalry as every game counts.
Using standard scoring system at this point with no tweaks
Rosters are increased to eight bench spots from six
This is because we are drafting before preseason and allows a better chance to mitigate any injuries before the season.
Standard season that being thirteen regular season games and three playoff games.
All games take place during the regular season weeks 1-16 weeks 13 through to 16 being our playoffs.
The teams that win there division automatically qualify for playoffs along with the next six best teams from either division. This is assuming we have the full sixteen teams the number of playoffs teams will change if we don’t.
It’s based on record first then point scored then divisional win loss record then if all three are tied live coin toss carried out by the commissioner.
As this is a money league you field a team as best you can if you have issues due to buy weeks or injuries in my view that’s your proplem.
It is assumed you will attempt to field the players you can who are likely to play if for what ever reason buy weeks and injuries you can’t then you fill the positions that you can to the best of your ability.
You don’t have to drop anyone if you don’t want to.
As commisoner I expect everyone will try to field there best team each week however if you can’t it’s good manners to explain in advance why.
We will not be finding out draft positions before the draft day but I can tell you my method allows choice Ie if your first to pick you pick the spot you want till the last person gets left with what ever everyone didn’t want.
A simple yet fun change to the originals.
Any other questions ?
