  1. Very unique 8 team start up league looking for one more owner. League was full but had one back out last minute for financial reasons. Looking to start the draft later this week. Check out the rules and settings below (including fees and payouts). League is ideal for someone who is in multiple leagues and looking for something that won't require a large commitment, especially the first two years. Please shoot me a message at rentedmules02@yahoo.com if interested. * A 5 round Rookie Only Draft will be held shortly after the NFL Draft in 3 consecutive years. Drafts will be slow, email snake drafts with 8 hour timer (paused during overnight hours). This year's draft will start as soon as league is full and entry fees are paid. * Each franchise will eventually consist of the 15 players drafted during those 3 Rookie Drafts. * There will be 2 copies of each player available to draft at QB and TE and 1 copy of each player at RB and WR. One copy of each player per team. * Draft order will be generated as follows: Year 1 (random), Year 2 (reverse order of Year 1), Year 3 (random). * Year round trading will be allowed but limited waivers/free agency process. * In season waivers will take place in year 3 only and will be held via blind bidding process with $100 FAAB budget but will be limited to players who were drafted in any of the last 3 NFL Drafts (that occurred during the league's existence). No players who entered the NFL during a period outside of this league's existence will be available at any time. If a team accidentally (or otherwise) claims an ineligible player, that player will simply be removed from that team by the commissioner. * No formal competition years one and two. Best ball tourney in year 3 only (weeks 1-16) for all the marbles. * PPR scoring format with .5 points per reception for RB, WR, (and QB) and 1.5 points per reception for TE (TE premium).* 6 player starting lineups. Starters will include 1 SUPERFLEX (QB/RB/WR/TE), 1 RB, 1 WR, 3 FLEX (RB/WR/TE). Starting players at QB and/or TE is optional but comes with obvious advantages. No defense or kickers. * Some scoring settings will be fractional and will include: .1 points per yard for rushing and receiving (equivalent of 1 point per 10 yards) and .04 points per yard passing (equivalent of 1 point per 25 yards). * 6 points per rushing and receiving TD and 4 points per passing TD. * Entry fees will be a total of $150 and will be collected and held via Leaguesafe. $100 non refundable fee owed prior to Year 1 draft, $50 non refundable fee owed prior to Year 2 draft, $0 owed prior to Year 3 draft. Owners will also spilt the MFL site fee (as stated below). * $1200 total prize pot. $1000 1st Place / $200 2nd Place. * League will be hosted on MFL (My Fantasy League) site in year 3 only. We will use MFL because it is the best site for custom formats like this one. All communication will be via email for first 2 years. League site fees would be split among all 8 owners and would be collected with year 3 drafting fees. (Current MFL charge is $69.95 for early bird) so site cost would likely come out to approximately $7 per owner.

  3. I'm thinking about changing from a 10 team league to an 8 team league and reducing the copies of players for rookie drafts to 2 copies for QB and TE and 1 copy for RB and WR. I still want the top prize to be $1000, so 2nd place would drop to $200. I also would require fees for years 1 and 2 to be paid prior to the year 1 draft and the fee for year 3 to be paid prior to the year 2 draft. This is to prevent someone from deciding not to pay and drop out because they don't like their team heading into year 3. It would break down as follows: $100 due prior to year 1 draft (which I'm hoping to hold early next month). $50 due prior to year 2 draft (plus $7 for MFL site fee, which will be available prior to year 3 draft). $0 due in year 3 I'm looking for 2 more people to join so we can get this thing kicked off. Email to rentedmules02@yahoo.com if interested.
  4. Still looking to get this league rolling with Year 1 Draft some time this month. Anyone else interested?
  5. See rules/settings changes above in bold!
  6. This year's draft will take place shortly after the league is filled!
  7. I am creating a 8 team ROOKIE ONLY Dynasty Hybrid League that will encompass 3 total seasons. Here are the highlights: * A 5 round Rookie Draft will be held shortly after the NFL Draft in 3 consecutive years. Drafts will be slow, email snake drafts with 8 hour timer (paused during overnight hours). This year's draft will start as soon as league is full. * There will be 2 copies of each player at QB and TE and 1 copy of each player at RB and WR available in the draft. One copy of player per team allowed.* Draft order will be generated as follow: Year 1 (random) - Year 2 (reverse of year 1) - Year 3 (random) * Each franchise will eventually consist of the 15 players drafted during those 3 Rookie Drafts. * Year round trading will be allowed but limited waivers/free agency process. * One time supplemental blind bidding waivers prior to start of formal competition in year 3 only. Each team could replace a maximum of 2 drafted players (possibly players that are injured or no longer in NFL) with any player drafted the same year as the player they are replacing. $100 FAAB budget. * 2 Emergency Waiver Claims allowed any time throughout season to replace injured or non performing players. First come first served. Players claimed must be players who were drafted in any of the last 3 NFL Drafts (that occurred during the league's existence). * No formal competition years one and two. Best Ball Tourney in year 3 for all the marbles (NFL weeks 1-16). * 5 player starting lineups. Starters will include 1 QB, 1 RB, 1 WR, 1 TE, 1 FLEX (RB/WR) * Scoring will be typical 1 point PPR format. * $50 non refundable draft fee per team prior to each of the 3 rookie drafts for a total entry fee of $150 per team. Money collected and held via Leaguesafe. * $1200 total prize pot. $1000 League Champ / $200 Runner Up. * League would be hosted on MFL (My Fantasy League) site in year 3 only because it is the best site for custom formats like this one. All communication will be via email for first 2 years. League site fees would be split among all 10 owners and would be collected with year 3 drafting fees. (Current MFL charge is $69.95 for early bird) so site cost would likely come out to approximately $7 per owner. This league will require minimal effort and financial commitment and will be great for those involved in multiple leagues and who love the process of evaluating and drafting NFL rookies. Have fun drafting for several days each spring and maybe win a GRAND (or a cool $500). If interested, please email me at rentedmules02@yahoo.com.
  8. Hey everyone, I have come up with what I believe is a very cool and unique semi-dynasty concept and would like to kick off a league this Spring/Summer. I am looking for 9 reliable and dedicated people who would like to participate in the 10 team league described in more detail below. I have been involved in fantasy sports for almost 20 years and have experience as commissioner running a current 2nd year Dynasty League on MFL and a successful 13 year redraft league that I recently folded to focus on other endeavors. If you are interested, please contact me at rentedmules02@yahoo.com. 3 Year Slow Build Rookie League Concept The basic concept of this league is that the roster of each of 10 franchises will be built slowly, over a 3 year period, through a series of (3) annual 4 round Rookie Drafts and (1) 4 round Veteran Supplemental Draft that owners will use to fill in roster spots based on positional needs not fully addressed through the Rookie Drafts. Strategy will be critical in filling out rosters mainly through the drafting of incoming NFL rookies with only a 4 round veteran draft and limited waiver/free agency in Year 3 to supplement those drafted rookies. The first 2 years of the league will be very low maintenance and owner involvement/commitment will basically be limited to drafting and stashing incoming NFL rookies. As a result, a smaller portion of the $200 total entry fee will be collected during the first two years. There will be minimal owner involvement and minimal financial commitment for the first 2 years. The overall idea of this league is very much outside the box of traditional fantasy football leagues. It is meant to test a players ability to construct a full 16 player roster over an extended time period using mostly NFL rookies and strategically complementing those rookies with a limited opportunity to acquire veteran players. Read the league regulations that follow to get a better idea of how this will be done. DRAFTS: Rookie Only Draft (Year 1) * There will be a 4 round rookie only slow email snake draft (only incoming rookies drafted in the 2020 NFL Draft will be available). * The draft will take place within 2 weeks after the league is full. * Draft Order will be randomly determined by a draft generating tool. * Those players will be loaded onto all respective team rosters and an email with those rosters will be sent to each owner. * There will be no formal competition of any kind during Year 1 and no trades, waivers, or transactions will be allowed. * The only purpose of Year 1 will be to add the first 4 players to each roster thru the Rookie Draft. Rookie Only Draft (Year 2) * There will be a 4 round rookie only slow email snake draft (only incoming rookies drafted in the 2021 NFL draft will be available). * The draft will take place in May, within 2 weeks after the NFL Draft. * Draft Order will be reversed from the prior year (if you drafted in the 1 slot in Year 1, you will draft in the 10 slot in Year 2) * Those players will be loaded onto all respective team rosters and an email with those rosters will be sent to each owner. * Each team will have at total of 8 players at this point but not all players will necessarily be active NFL players (if they were cut or are otherwise out of the league). * There will be no formal competition of any kind during Year 2 and no trades, waivers, or transactions will be allowed. * The only purpose of Year 2 will be to add the second 4 players to each roster thru the rookie draft. Rookie Only Draft (Year 3) * There will be a third 4 round rookie only slow email snake draft (only incoming rookies drafted in the 2022 NFL draft will be available). * The draft will take place in May, within 2 weeks after the NFL Draft. * Draft Order will be reversed from the prior year (if you drafted in the 1 slot in Year 2, you will draft in the 10 slot in Year 3) * Those players will be loaded onto all respective team rosters and an email with those rosters will be sent to each owner. * Each team will have at total of 12 players at this point but not all players will necessarily be active NFL players (if they were cut or are otherwise out of the league). Supplemental Veteran Draft (Year 3) * There will be a 4 round Supplemental Veteran slow email snake draft in Year 3 after the Rookie Draft (all available players will be able to be drafted). * The draft will take place in late July and will be utilized to fill out the remaining spots on each team's roster. * Draft Order will again be reversed from the previous draft which, in this case, will be the 3rd Rookie Draft. * Those players will be loaded onto all respective team rosters and an email with those rosters will be sent to each owner. * Each team will have at total of 16 players at this point but not all players will necessarily be active NFL players (if they were cut or are otherwise out of the league). Waivers (Year 3): * There will be no waivers/free agency transactions during the first 2 years but that will change in Year 3. * After all drafting has been completed, each team will be given a total of 4 waiver claims to use whenever they wish during the 3rd season. * Waivers can be utilized to replace rookies who have been cut or are otherwise no longer active players in the NFL. They can also be used to replace players injured during the season. * Once a team uses its 4 waiver claims, they can no longer add any players in that manner. Teams will have to be strategic in how they utilize these precious commodities. * Waiver claims will be restricted in that, if you are replacing a player(s) you drafted as a rookie in any of the 3 Rookie Only Drafts, they can only be replaced with a player from that same NFL Draft Class. * If you are replacing a player(s) you drafted during the Veteran Supplemental Draft, you can replace that player(s) with any available free agent. * Waivers will be strictly first come, first served. (Again, teams will have to be strategic with these waiver claims and plan for unforeseen injuries, etc during the season, etc). * Waiver order will not be based on standings and teams will not fall to the bottom of a priority list after they make a claim. Trades (Year 3): * Trading will be allowed during Year 3 only, after all drafts are complete and rosters are filled out with drafted players. * There will be no restrictions or limits on trading but commissioner approval will be needed prior to trade processing and will be done within 24 hours of trade notification. * In the event that the commissioner deems a trade to be the result of possible collusion, that trade will be put up for league wide vote before being processed or rejected. Competition (Year 3): * The actual fantasy season (competition) will begin in Year 3. * It will be a best ball format with total points scored thru 15 weeks determining the standings. No H2H matchups. * The system will automatically use the highest point totals at each starting position to determine scoring. * Weekly starters will include: (1) QB, (2) RB, (2) WR, (1) TE, (1) FLEX-RB/WR/TE. There will be no kickers or defenses on rosters. * There will be no division/conference breakdown. All teams will be on one "division" and the top 3 finishers will cash out. Scoring (Year 3) * Scoring will be a traditional PPR format. Refer to league settings for all scoring info. Highlights listed below. *** 1 point per reception for RB, WR, and TE *** .1 points per rushing yard (fractional) *** .1 points per receiving yard (fractional) *** 1 point per 25 passing yards *** 6 points per rushing/receiving TD *** 4 points per passing TD Entry Fees/Payouts * The entry fee will be $200 per franchise and will break down in the following manner. *** $50 non-refundable fee due prior to Year 1 Rookie Draft *** $50 non-refundable fee due prior to Year 2 Rookie Draft *** $100 non-refundable fee due prior to Year 3 Rookie Draft * If an owner does not manage and pay entry fees for their franchise for the entire 3 years, they will not receive a refund for money already paid and their franchise will become an "orphan". * An orphaned franchise will be sold to a replacement owner and that new owner will only be responsible for fees not already paid. * Total incoming funds will be $2000 and will be maintained in Leaguesafe account * Fund distribution will break down as follows: * $100 for administrative expenses including MFL site hosting fee (site will only be maintained during Year 3 for actual competition. We won't need a site for the first 2 years and will not pay MFL fees for those years). * Total prize pool will be $1900 (all prizes will be distributed via Leagusafe at the end of Year 3 after standings have been finalized). *** 1st Place (Total Points For) - $1200 *** 2nd Place (Total Points For) - $500 *** 3rd Place (Total Points For) - $200
  9. 2 spots remaining. Shoot email to rentedmules02@yahoo.com if interested.
  10. I have copied the general league information and pasted below: TEAMS: • Franchises will be named by owners and should represent a city that does not currently have a professional sports team in any of the 4 major sports leagues (NFL, NHL, MLB, NBA). Examples include Topeka, Charleston, Louisville, Hartford, Providence, Albuquerque, Ft. Worth, ,etc. • 12 teams total: 2 conferences of 6 teams each (Federal & Liberty) • DRAFTS: • Origination Draft: (normal 24 round snake style online draft). •Rookie Draft: 4 round draft held every year after the inaugural season. Draft order will be determined by standings with last place team selecting first and league champ selecting 12th. Each franchise will designate 20 keepers prior to draft and open 4 spots on roster for rookie draft picks. Will take place in late August/early September. • Replacement Draft: If a new owner(s) enters league and adopts an orphaned team, there will be a Replacement Draft (prior to Rookie Draft). Will take place in July. • Each team can protect 12 of it’s 24 players. Non-protected players will be exposed in the Replacement Draft. Each team owner, including new owner(s), must submit a list of protected players to the league prior to Replacement Draft. • Replacement owner(s) can select up to 5 players from existing teams (nonprotected list) but cannot select more than one player from any single team. An existing team that has a player sniped from it’s roster can then select one player from the unprotected players on the replacement team’s roster. • Replacement Draft will be conducted by email. New owner will have a maximum of 12 hours to make each selection. Once a selection is made, the team who’s player was sniped will then have a maximum of 12 hours to choose a replacement player from the new owner’s unprotected player list (owners will be encouraged to make each selection and notify league ASAP. Full 12 hour allotment should be used only if needed). This will continue until the new owner has selected all of the players (s)he wishes (up to 5 total players). If there are multiple new owners, the order for the Replacement Draft will be determined by the orphaned teams’ place in the prior season’s standings. FREE AGENCY/WAIVERS: • FAAB waiver system with $100 in FAAB budget per season. Waivers will take place in-season only. No players will be able to be claimed during off-season. TRADES: • Trading will be allowed in-season as well as during the off-season. • Trading of draft picks (for the league’s Rookie Draft) will be allowed when actual players are also involved in such trade. No draft pick only deals will be allowed. • A non refundable deposit of $50 (half the league fee) will be due from all returning owners by a pre determined date (in April) to ensure league will have enough time to fill any open spots and also to ensure off-season trades are not made involving an owner(s) that decide to leave the league after such trade is consummated. ROSTER CONSTRUCTION: • Maximum position allowances, starting lineup information, IR information, etc will be posted in league settings on official league site. There will not be a taxi squad so all players will need to be part of the team’s 24 player roster. Players who are likely not going to be active or have a significant impact on a current season will still be part of a team’s 24 player limit so owner’s will have to figure that into roster construction. The expanded 24 player roster will allow for those players to be stashed away for future seasons without affecting a team’s ability to field a competitive lineup during the current season. SCORING: • League will use Head To Head and full point PPR (points per reception) scoring format. Full scoring information will be posted in league settings on official league site. RULES COMMITTEE: • The league will implement a 3 person Rules Committee that will include league commissioner and 2 other league owners. Members will be elected on a voluntary basis and will be determined by length of time as an owner in the RMFFL (my current redraft league). The Rules Committee will be utilized to impartially resolve any rules violations,issues, or disputes or other league business related directly to the competition itself. FULL SEASON COMPETITIVENESS ASSUMPTION: • All teams will be expected to field a competitive lineup of active players on a weekly basis. Any team owner that is deemed to not be making a true faith attempt to win a weekly matchup, either purposely or through neglect/ disinterest, will be given one warning and then will be subject to a lockout of roster control. • In such an instance, the commissioner will field that team’s best possible lineup based solely on player point projections. • This stipulation is meant to ensure the competitive integrity of the league and to prevent an owner of a team eliminated from playoff contention from purposely “tanking” in an attempt to secure a higher draft slot in the next year’s Rookie Draft, etc. • The determination on whether an owner is guilty of this violation will be made by the Rules Committee and any owner who is found to be in flagrant violation may be subject to termination from the league and will not be refunded any portion of league fees covering the current season. Any extenuating circumstances that contributed to an owner’s inactivity will be considered when making this decision. FEES/PAYOUTS: Annual league entry fee will be $100. Seasonal payouts will break down as follows: $510 League Champion $200 League Runner Up $100 Conference Regular Season Winner (X2) $200 Overall Points For Regular Season *The remaining $90 will go toward paying site hosting fee. Balance of entry fees will be due in late June and all league accounting will be handled through Leaguesafe.
