Do you follow the Premier League?
Do you like fantasy football?
Would you like to get involved in a draft type fantasy football money league (where no one can have the same players)?
If the answer is yes, then read on my friend as I have just such a league drafting on the eve of the new Premier League season - that being Friday 11th September 2020 at 8pm. I have picked a live draft date and time for this league to give people some clarity as to when it will take place so they can know if they are able to commit to it or not and or make arrangements for it.
Each entrant that signs up can vote for the scoring settings we will use - either Classic or Head to Head (as we had in this league last year). One team one vote - which you will cast by posting on the leagues message board. Whichever option the majority are in favour of come Thursday night (10/9/20) at midnight (going into Friday 11/9/20- draft day) will be which setting we go with. If by some chance it’s a tie I will flip a coin - can’t really say fairer than that.
The entry fee will be the same as last season - £25 per team. I will confirm prizes after the live draft as soon as everyone has paid up which hopefully will be that very first weekend of the new season. I have to wait to then to know how many teams we have (unless I get a full quota of 16 players prior to then in which case I can then work out the prizes before the draft itself - which would be better. All entry fees will be paid back out as prizes 100%).
I am using Fantasy Premier Leagues draft game for this money league.
The Scoring Mode can be changed depending on vote outcome I will keep changing it as per the votes cast.
You may have noticed from the above league info I have activated player trading in this league where it goes to a vote system - this means managers can vote against a trade (hopefully they only do this if they think the trade is unfair) but to get a trade vetoed it takes 50% of managers to vote against it - not only that a trade is approved at the waiver deadline and the system takes any non-team manager votes as approval. So, it is much more likely trades will go through than not - and also means managers should pay attention to trades when notified and use their veto option if they don’t agree with it.
I have stuck with the standard default of 90 seconds per pick - I know some find this to long but equally others don’t so decided to keep to the default setting (the system allows for me to set it at 30 through to 120 seconds).
I have chosen an eve of season draft so as much about the teams’ squads with regard to transfers ins’ & outs’ is known as possible, as well as to give me the maximum amount of recruiting time to try and improve on numbers - my league had 7 paid teams last year. I hope this year I can do better. Overseas players are most welcome to.
I have decided to send this info out by e-mail and post it on TFP and the first 15 to commit and pay up are in.
I will send a direct invite to the league when a person pays the entry fee - that way I guarantee its first come first served, nor do I then have to chase anyone for payment and can confirm the prizes sooner rather than later.
