Homer League...

Recommended Posts

I was invited to one of the homer leagues as the Miami representative, but it is IDP and my brain does not work that way right now.

 

Does anyone have an interest in a non-IDP, ghetto-in-cost homer league?

 

I am in three other leagues and the Wench is in one... so money is a bit of an issue and I'd like to keep it cheap... say... $25... ($25 x 32 - less MFL costs comes to $700+)

 

 

I like the drafting rules... round 1) homer // round 2) whoever // round 3) homer // round 4) whoever... etc.

 

...but I am not feeling a dynasty or idp (as I already run a dynasty and keeper league and I am an old dog when it comes to IDP).

 

I figure redraft, worst to first free agency and team Ds.

 

I don't even know if I want to be the commish beause of my other commish duties which take up a lot of my time, but thought that I would throw this out there to see if there is an interest.

I'm interested as a Minnesota homer.

 

I've been looking for both a Homer league and a simple Keeper league as well. I might have to start up the latter on my own if none of them open up this off-season.

I guess we could do this as a simple keeper league, but I have a concern that with 32 teams there might be a bit of turnover.

 

Also... I am not quite sure how keepers would affect the draft (homer/whoever/homer/whoever/etc)

As far as draft order goes... because some teams are a little more stacked than others.... maybe we should take last years standings or average out the last couple year's standings and use that as first round draft order (worst to first)... and snake from there

I wasn't really trying to suggest that you make this one a Keeper league. I was just stating that this is one of two types of leagues that I was interested in joining.

Some scoring and rules ideas...

 

Roster Requirements

 

1 Quarterback

2 Wide Receivers

1 Running Back

1 Tight End

2 Flex (WR/RB/TE)

1 Kicker

1 Defense

 

Trades and Free Agent Acquisitions

Every owner will be allowed 3 transactions every week. Both Free Agent acquisitions and trades are considered transactions. A single trade involving multiple players is considered one transaction.

 

Trades

 

The trading period begins at the conclusion of week 1 of the NFL regular season and continues through the conclusion of the NFL’s week 10.

 

Any owner can trade with any other owner Monday through Thursday but a trade cannot put an owner above the 19-man roster maximum. (i.e. an owner must rid himself of a player if he expects to get two players for one. This can often be done by trading a scrub to the other owner in addition to the desired player)

 

 

Free Agency

Waiver rules, worst to first. Up to three rounds.

being in a 32 team league, you might want to rethink that 2 flex position requirement. It's hard enough fielding 2 WRs...

fair enough... everything is open to change right now. Maybe one flex.

Agree with Loaf - 1 flex might be better.

 

I assume the Team defense should be the homer?

One flex sounds good, as does the team D.

 

I still wonder how to handle the homer end of things because there are good fantasy teams and bad fantasy teams...

 

Maybe we could say that before the draft begins...

 

Homers whose teams have a player in the top 20 get to choose one player from their team in the first round whereas teams who do not have a player in the top 20, can chose 2.

 

Then we draw draft positions and have a snake draft.

 

eg: KC, SD, SEA, WAS, TB, MIA, STL, HOU, OAK, CIN, BUF, ARI, IND, CIN, CAR, NYG, PHI, OAK - will get one pick off the top and the remaining 18 teams get two...

 

Folk who got two players because their homer team is not a good fantasy team will just miss the last round of the draft.

 

It might even be best ... rather than drafting homer // whoever // homer // whover that we say... by round 10 an owner needs to have 4 homers on his team and that by round 19, he needs to have 9. That way people's hands aren't tied too much

 

Just shooting out ideas to make things even

why don't you just use the 32 Homers template?

 

we have worked out a lot of the kinks that come with starting up a league with 32 owners.

he might be french but this time he happens to be right

 

here is the link to 32 Homers take a look at the teams and what they look like....we get ONE HOMER STUD, Homer D/ST & Homer Keeper, and then there is a 9 round draft...if you want look at the draft in round 9 before you decide on a FLEX

I'd be interested in the Bears depending on when the draft is. I'm with you, my brain isn't ready for IDP either. $25 sounds good to me as well.

Yeah, but not all teams have studs - eg, San Fran.

 

I want things to be as even as possible.

 

that's why I would like to give every team with a player in the top 20, one guy off the top - and every team without a guy in the top 20, two guys off the top and than start the draft. (they would just lose their final pick)

 

So... maybe we can have every team take their teams, D and kicker... one or two players (as discussed above) and maintain that they'll need to keep at least 8 of their 19 players from their homer team.

 

due to the 32 teams... maybe we'll drop the rosters to 16 and have owners keep 6 homer players on the roster

 

I like larger rosters, so 9 won't do it for me.
