Each conference will have its own draft. The draft will have 7 rounds, with third round reversal (so the first overall pick will also pick first in rounds 4 and 6, and will pick last in rounds 2, 3, 5 and 7).
In the draft, you must draft one and only one Team QB, and also one and only one Team Defence – because there are a very limited number of each available to draft!
The aim will be to run the draft on Discord in the week of 7-11 January. There are only 42 picks in each draft so should hopefully be fairly swift.
1 team QB*
1 team Defence
2 x Flex (RB/WR/TE)
(* QB depth charts are not well known at present, so we will draft a Team QB, rather than a named individual. Each week your score will be based on whichever QB, playing for your chosen team, scores most fantasy points. This will always be a QB – if another non-QB player throws a long trick play score, this will count for that player, and not for team QB)
For Team QB / RB / WR / TE
3 points per passing TD
1 point per passing two-point conversion
5 points per rushing or receiving or returning or fumble recovery TD
2 points per rushing or receiving two-point conversion
1 point per 50 yards passing, or part thereof
1 point per 25 yards from scrimmage, or part thereof
For Team Defence
1 point per sack
2 points per turnover (recovered fumble, interception)
5 points per defensive TD (not return TD, as the individual player gets this)
Scoring is whole point and tied games are possible.
As the season gets close, we may know more about the players likely to star. So we will have one round of waivers the week before the Superbowl, in which each team may drop one player, and pick up one un-owned player– and another round the week after the Superbowl and before the real AAF kick off.
For the first week of waivers, the priority order will match the order of the first round of the draft. For the second week of waivers, the priority order will be the reverse.
