DISCORD Channel link: TFP Auction Draft League on DISCORD - chat room
Slowly more of my fantasy games players are joining my Discord server to chat to other people in the leagues & games they are in of mine. Each of my draft fantasy leagues has its own dedicated room to discuss things about that particular league but there is also a general chat area for anyone who partakes in any BLM fantasy games I run here or just wants to talk about sports - NFL / F1 /Cycling / Cricket etc., all have their own dedicated chat rooms to: BLM Fantasy Games general chat room on DISCORD
TFP Auction Draft (year 7) is a go.
Caveat - I am setting this league up real late this year as I was very hesitant about doing it as I had problems last year (and the years before that) in the draft room so this year again waited to run a test on the NFL.com Auction Draft client by doing my RTA (free league’s) Auction Draft first to see how it went. That was a 12 team league and sadly it was the worst ever on the normal website. It did not show budgets or who was bidding and was not fit for purpose. I had to swicth to the phone app which was better but it still often froze on me several times. I could not be sure if that was my Android phone or the NFL.com Fantasy App as my phones internal memory is pretty full and I often have issues playing videos or loading websites. Any way long and short of it is I’ve finally carried out my threat to NFL.com and migrated to another platform.
From Year 7 onwards this league will now be hosted on Sleeper.
All players that were involved last year have the automatic right of return should they want to play again - but due to the lateness of setting this league up that’s only guaranteed until midnight on Sunday (going into Monday) after that it’s open to all on a first come first served basis. During this time I will also invite people off of the official waiting list (in chronological order) when I know I have space (i.e. people have informed me they are not returning or if there were spaces due to not having a full 14 teams the previous season etc.)
So now onto the nitty gritty rules:
This is a money league with same entry fee as last year - £50 per team - so a serious proposition.
A change of platform often brings about a change in the default settings so it is for every player to understand any changes from last year. Alas I can’t seem to find away to publicly share the leagues settings from sleeper via a link that openly works so going to have to do my best with edited screen grabs here:
For this my first season on Sleeeper have decided to stick as closely as possible to Sleepers default settings with the exception of using FAAB (Free Agent Acquisition Budget) points for the waiver wire. Each player gets 100 points each to start the season and you use those points to bid for free agents during waivers each week.
So below is a list of those who partook last season and when they have paid they will be moved up the list on that basis and bolded - to show they have paid. After the small window (midnight Sunday 5th September going into Monday 6th September) for last years players to confirm they wish to return this year the league will be opened up to anyone on a first to pay takes a slot basis until the league is full (14 teams max). Only when a player has paid the entry fee will they be invited direct from the league on Sleeper to claim a spot.
