  1. So I am the commissioner of a 12 team fraternity league. Everyone is very personally connected and sees every member frequently. The league was created two years ago for a test run and then I took it over last year with a ton of changes (standard-> .5ppr, nfl->espn, free -> buy in, no reward -> trophy and jersey, no keepers -> keepers). This year we will be keeping most of the changes, however there was an issue with keepers that will lead into my main question. We never decided how keepers would be kept (huge oversite I know). We didn't think about it until the off season, and then the voting for how it would be done (2 round penalty VS. just keep 2 then draft the rest of your team) was controlled entirely by bias. Owner with Mccoy and T.Y. wants to keep them and then draft, the guys who drafted D Murray and Gordon in the 5th and 6th want round penalties, etc. So after much discussion we decided to not do keepers for this year and then vote on which system to use for keepers pre draft this year. Now during the season, when keepers were still going to happen, one member of the league was mathematically eliminated from playoffs before our trade deadline (thanksgiving) hit. He then sold off Dak Prescott to our Taco for a 4th round pick, and traded Doug Baldwin to me for a 4th round pick and Jarvis Landry. Both of those trades were made with intentions of keeping the teaded for players. I ended up going on to win the league, in no small part due to Baldwin putting up 30 points in the finale. The new Dak owner did not make the playoffs. The player who traded away the players for future picks got 12th (last) place. With that backstory, here is the issue. Since we are not doing keepers, and those trades were made specifically for keepers, there is a thought by myself and the new Dak owner (as well as some bystanders) that the picks should not be granted to the last place finisher. However the last place finisher is obviously strongly opposed to that, as he got last place (in his mind) because of these trades he made (the punishment for last place is the league votes on a Name change for the last place team). He does not want to pay league fees unless he is awarded his picks for the trades (as they went through the 24 hour vetoed process and passed). I am not sure what to do, and obviously I can not decided without some bias. I have considered not taking picks from anyone and giving the last place team a compensatory 4th round pick (where he picks an extra player at the end of the 4th in between the turn). Or just giving him my pick (as his player essentially won me the league) and giving the Dak owner their pick back. However, I am not sure what the best course of action is. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for reading TLDR: League was doing keepers, is no longer. During time when keepers were happening 2 teams traded 2017 4th round picks for players from the same team. One of those teams won the league. Since no longer doing keepers, teams want their picks back (wanted to keep players they traded for). Not sure what to do.

  3. Ok, for free agents, my league has always been a "first come, first served" no waiver time, no waiver priority league. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea but it's worked for us. This year we are voting in FAAB. I'd like to use FAAB so everyone has a chance to bid on any player that someone tries to pick up from free agency. But, I don't want any type of waiver priority. I want anyone to be able to pick a player and place a bid at anytime. So it's still "first come, first served" but a more level playing field with us using FAAB. I've tried setting it up this way on Yahoo, but all of their FAAB options have some type of priority waiver list setting attached to it. Does any other site offer what I'm looking for ? Thanks man advance, I greatly appreciate the help ! Also, on yahoo I didn't see where it told you how much FAAB you get, or the option to change it.
  4. This happens to every fantasy owner each year. Your team scores the 2nd or 3rd most amount of points, but unfortunately you lose your matchup because you faced the #1 scoring team that week. Requesting feedback on this idea. The league operates on a "points" system. Week by week, if you win your matchup, you earn 1 point. In addition, the top 4 teams also earn extra points (#1 scorer - 1 extra point, #2 - 0.75 points, #3 - 0.5 points, #4 - 0.25 points). Therefore, each week you can earn up to 2 points. For example, if your team was the #2 scoring team, but lost to the #1 scoring team, you still earned 0.75 points. Playoffs are decided by the teams who have earned the most "points" To summarize: 1) you earn one point for winning the matchup 2) top 4 teams are awarded extra points. Thoughts?
  5. This year, my friends and I are finally making the transition to Dynasty league instead of standard. Would love to hear some ideas on a few different aspects of running a dynasty league. 1) what is the best roster setting? Keeper - how many players should each team be allowed to keep at the end of the year? 2) IDP - like it, love it, or hate it? 3) other notes I should be aware of?
  6. I've had the following trades vetoed by the league this year: A: Melvin Gordon/Gio Bernard (before he was out touching Hill) FOR Lamar Miller/Doug Martin (injured, no timetable) B: Frank Gore/Devante Adamas FOR Le'Veon Bell (Guy had two glaring holes in his RB2 and WR2 slot). Is it fair for them to veto my trades if no collusion was found and both teams were trying to improve based on their own perceived value of the players? We are all playing under the same conditions, with the same people, yet I manage negotiate better trades than other owners and get punished. This league is starting to feel a little like socialist fantasy football where everyone gets a trophy and everything is exactly fair. Giving league owners the power to anonymously veto can be grossly abused in my opinion. Thoughts on the matter, it's really pissing me off?
  7. Playing Pryor in the WR slot - news is reporting he may be QB. In the NFL Fantasy leagues, or any for that you get points for passing yards and then the rushing yards he rushes?

  9. Hi so this is a question I have on something I did as commissioner and I want to know if you guys think this is okay or if I should undo it. I offered a trade to someone (Amari Cooper and Ryan Matthews for Ezekiel Elliot and Chris Johnson). I notified the league to let them know they could veto it. After about 2 hours I decided I wanted to keep Cooper since he is on my favorite team and I just vetoed the trade even though no one else did. I want to know if I should have to reoffer the trade back. Another option which I would prefer if you guys think I should offer it back is that I would like to include Brandin Cooks in the trade instead of Amari Cooper even though he is ranked higher just because I like Cooper since I am a Raiders Fan. Let me know what you think. Thanks
  10. Who to start 1 point PPR 1 QB Winston 1 RB Elliot, white, Jennings 2 WR M Jones, Hilton, Wallace, Landry, Tyrell Williams 1 TE Reed 1 Flex
  11. Should I drop Sterling Sherpherd or Allen Hurns in favor on picking up Tajae Sharpe and Will Fuller? I lost Keenan Allen and we use a FAAB so I'm dedicating a lot of cash for these two players.
  12. Can someone serve as the commissioner but not have a team? I have been the commissioner of my league for years and this year I would like someone else to take it over. One of the members volunteered to serve as commish because he doesn't want to play this year. I assigned league commissioner rights to him and assigned a 2nd owner for his team. Its on ESPN. I am not sure I did this correctly? anyone have any experience with this situation? Thanks in advance.

  15. Hey guys, Have a 10 team league at ESPN. We have two divisions, and playoff wise we want to have the top two teams from each division to the playoffs. Also the 5th and 6th team (regardless of division) should go through to the wild card round and meet the 3rd and 4th team while 1st and 2nd are on Bye. Thing is, I am not sure how I can make this happen in the ESPN Setup.. I can only choose just to have 6 teams go through, but i am not sure if that ensures that the top two teams go through,or it will choose the overall best across the the divisions. Any help would be much appreciated!

  19. **I am looking for four additional owners for my 12 team league; nine for the 14 team league. See details below.** These are FREE PPR/IDP leagues with balanced, nonconventional, fractional scoring settings. Every player counts in this league. High scoring. I used the PPR format as the basis the scoring settings and made adjustments to every position thereafter. Commish: I am a very involved commissioner, usually posting to the message boards to help owners the best way I can. I take pride in my leagues. I'm on pacific time so any draft change requests please consider that. League Overview: I've had these leagues for a few years now and am always tinkering with the scoring settings and roster positions to build upon the year prior. Biggest change this year: TEs are no longer required and an additional flex. While the settings are the same in both leagues, I use the 12 team league as a minor league of sorts for my money league. New owners are sometimes skeptical of the scoring settings the first year so I made the 12 team so they can have a season or two to get familiar with the settings. Usually, if there are any big discrepancies with scoring settings or the FA pool, I make improvements the following season. The 14 team is a new format for me. Roster Breakdown: QB, WR, WR, RB, RB, W/R/T, W/R/T, K, DEF, D, D, DB, DB, DL, LB, LB, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, IR Draft Times & Format: 12 Team - Live Standard Draft; Mon Sep 5 10:00pm EDT; 1 Minute, 15 Seconds pick time 14 Team - Live Standard Draft; Sun Sep 4 10:00pm EDT; 1 Minute pick time Waiver: Continual rolling list Playoffs: Week 14, 15, and 16 (6 teams) Invite Permission: All Managers Can Invite (so invite a friend or two) Scoring Settings: Click on one of the links and decide if this is the league for you.

  20. Hi Forum, I'm brand new to this site, but wanted to talk to you guys that have played in Dynasty leagues. Last year was our first year and as far as I know no one including the commissioner had played Dynasty before (This is in yahoo btw. 16 team, 4 division, offense and idp players included). In our league its a dynasty so you can keep up to all of your players, but you have to keep minimum of 9. So now we are in our second year, but still trying to figure out how the draft will work. The current proposal is that we set our keepers and our keepers will determine what rounds we have available for drafting based on where we drafted that player last year. So for those you keep they will take the same draft spot as last year +1 and FA acquisitions will fill slots from the last round up. For example if I keep my 1,2,3,6,7,9,10,12,15 round draft pick players from last year then those players will take up rounds 1,2,3,5,6,8,9,11,14 of this year, which would leave me draft picks in rounds 4,7,10,12,13, and beyond to draft rookies/free agents. Is this how most dynasties do it for the years after the first initial draft year? Or is there a better way? The other complicated thing is that we allowed future draft pick trades last year and so now there are guys that have keepers in rounds that they have already traded their pick away. For example using my example above say I have a keeper that would take up round 3 however I traded my round 3 pick away, what should we do here. Since there were no draft rules before this year it wouldn't seem fair for someone to lose their 3rd round keeper player since at the time they were just trading a pick and were unaware that it would hurt who there keepers for the next year. I hope this is not confusing, but if I lost you at all, I'm just wondering how you guys in dynasty draft after the initial year, in say year 2, 3, 4 and how future draft pick trades are handled. Thanks in advance for the help.

  22. Current League Settings: Team you will be adopting: There will be an owner's meeting on August 20th to propose new league rules and establish a draft date. This league has one keeper going into the 2016 season which means that you will be able to keep 1 player on your roster before the draft starts. The owner of this team was unable to stay active due to military reasons and has been removed unanimously through league vote. Looking for an active owner to provide ample competition to fill this vacancy and become a member of the Pride League Family. Pride ain't cheap($200 entry), but I guarantee it'll be rewarding. I'm the commish and you can respond via this post or email me: We use Leaguesafe to hold the entry fees and the first team that pays the leaguesafe entry will be awarded this team. Thank you for considering this league. -Your Commissioner

  24. So I need advice/opinions. Taxi Squad Settings are that you have to give up the pick that you used to draft a player in order to keep that player. If you do not have that pick, you have to give up the next pick... In my opinion that is unjust, wouldn't you give up at LEAST that pick and if you don't have the necessary pick, you give up an earlier pick to keep the player? In this case, the guy that drafted a few taxi squad players in the 9th -12th round has traded all of his picks from rounds 9-16 so now he only has to give up a 16th rounder for Langford and Jordan Hicks.. Am I wrong or right in your opinion. Comments are greatly appreciated.
