Draft Rules

Maiden Draft:

The league’s maiden draft is an e-mail (offline) draft, with each owner having 12 hours to determine their selection. For this method of drafting, league owners should choose a draft date far in advance.

If a league Owner takes more than 12 hours to draft a player (when it's their turn to choose), that Owner would allow the hosting site (MFL) to select the highest ADP ranked player as their draft choice.

Maiden Draft Rules

The league’s maiden draft would allow all owners to reserve a particular draft spot.

First, league Owners would be randomly selected to pick their draft position. Owners would declare their draft spot in a forum thread created by the Commissioner.

If a league Owner takes more than 12 hours to declare their draft spot (when it's their turn to choose), that Owner would be randomly selected to fill any remaining draft spots at the end of this process.

The league’s maiden draft would utilize a reversed, snake-style format (1-12, 12-1, 1-12, etc.) for all draft rounds.

Rookie Draft:

Draft order for the league’s annual Rookie draft (held within 3 weeks after the seasons' official NFL draft) would be determined by the Championship tournament from the previous season for the last eight draft slots (1.05 – 1.12), and the Consolation Tournament from the previous season for the first four draft slots. (1.01 – 1.04).

The Rookie draft would utilize a non-reversal, snake-style format (1-12, 1-12) for each round. (5 rounds total)

The Rookie draft would be an e-mail (offline) draft, with each owner having 12 hours to determine their selection.

If a league Owner takes more than 12 hours to draft a player (when it's their turn to choose), that Owner would allow the hosting site (MFL) to select the highest ADP ranked rookie player as their draft choice.

Free Agency

Off-season Roster Sizes:

During the offseason for existing Dynasty Teams, Owners will be allowed to fill up to 35 roster spots through trades and free agents from the available player pool.

Two separate cut events would take place prior to the start of the NFL regular season. The first cut to 28 spots would be after the 3rd week of the NFL pre-season has finished (Sunday night). The final cut to 25 spots (including TAXI) would be after the last week of the NFL pre-season has finished (Sunday night).

If Owners do not have their rosters trimmed down by the League's cut-off dates, the Commissioner can move players from the Owner's roster to the free agency pool, starting with the Owners' last drafted player (ex: for 25 player rosters, only the players' first 25 draft picks would be retained)

Waiver Wire

During the regular season, there are two waiver periods. The first waiver period utilizes a FAAB (Free Agent Acquisition Budget) blind bidding process, and the second waiver period uses a “First Come, First Served” method once the first waiver period has expired.

These waiver periods last through Week 17 of the regular season. Waivers would not be allowed after the calendar year ends.

Players that are released to the waiver wire would be eligible for pickup during the next FAAB waiver wire period.

Free Agent Acquisition Budget Waiver Claims:

FAAB blind bidding waivers would start on Tuesday at 2:00 AM ET, allowing each league owner to bid on available free agents.

The FAAB would have a set amount set aside for acquiring players during the restricted waiver period. Blind bids would be submitted by each owner for particular players they would like to acquire.

The starting budget for each season would be $200 unless adjusted by majority vote prior to the start of the regular season.

The order of FAAB waiver priority is determined by highest bid, with tying bids pitting Overall Winning Percentage records for first priority. Waivers continue within this process, with the order of desired players in an Owner's cue being addressed until all waiver claims have been processed.

The deadline for FAAB blind bidding on free agents is Wednesday at 11:00 PM CT. First come, first served waivers would begin immediately afterward.

First Come, First Served Waivers:

After the restricted FAAB period has ended, owners can submit a regular waiver claim for an available free agent after protected waivers clear on Wednesday.

Regular waiver claims for free agents during this non-restricted, first come-first serve period are available until kickoff time of the free agents’ particular game.

Off-season Waivers:

The period for off-season waivers begins after the first weekend following the NFL Rookie Draft through the beginning of the regular season.

Off-season waivers would occur during the 1st & 15th of every month, starting in May and continuing through the week before the start of the NFL regular season.

Waivers during this period of time would be blind bid in nature, adopting the weekly waiver schedule used during the regular season outlined above. Only non-rostered, non-rookie players would be considered available for this period of time.

Off-season waivers would utilize a FAAB system, adopting the regular season budget ($200) for this period. Offseason waiver FAAB budgets do not carry over to the regular season, with any remaining balance zeroed before the regular season starts.

First come, first served waivers would not be available during the offseason. All waiver claims would be blind bid in nature.

Scoring System

The league scoring system would be determined by league owners prior to the start of the regular season. Owners are encouraged to adopt a standardized system of point accrual, with variations based on preferences voted on by majority rule.


Tiebreakers would reference each team's total touchdown count as an alternative method of scoring H2H matchups. If these totals are also tied, total bench points would be a secondary method of scoring.

Trade Rules

Owners are encouraged to conduct trading throughout the offseason and for the first part of the regular season. Trading between teams would be unavailable from Week 12-17 of the regular season.

All trades are expected to be executed in good faith and with the goal of improving one’s roster over the short or long-term.

All trades which are mutually approved by both Owners are automatically approved without league or Commissioner consideration. The Commissioner reserves the right to nullify a trade if collusion or gross imbalance is apparent.

Trade Protest -

Any owner may protest a trade by posting in the league forum. A trade protest must be seconded/supported by another league owner for a league-wide approval vote to occur. A trade protest vote needs a 2/3 majority of all owners to pass. If it does pass, it nullifies the proposed trade.

League Owners are allowed one trade protest per year. Seconding/supporting another owner's trade protest counts as a trade protest.

If a trade protest vote is successful, the Owner and Seconding/supporting Owner are allowed to challenge another trade in the same calendar year.

If a trade protest vote is unsuccessful, both the Owner and Seconding/supporting Owner lose their ability to protest a trade for the remainder of the year.

Trading future draft picks:

For the League's maiden draft, Owners would be allowed to trade various draft positions to other teams without having to deposit an additional entry fee for the following year.

For future drafts, trades may include future draft picks for the next two calendar years. Both teams that agree to trade future year draft picks two seasons in advance must submit an additional deposit towards that season's entry fee within 1 week of the trade being processed.

Trading Taxi Squad Players:

Owners can use Taxi Squad players for trading and trade bait purposes throughout the year. If an Owner acquires a Taxi Squad player in a trade and has a full Taxi Squad, said Owner must have an available bench spot to accommodate the Taxi Squad player.

Trading FAAB:

Owners can use their FAAB budgets for trading and trade bait purposes during the NFL regular season, and during the offseason (using a separate FAAB budget for blind bidding outlined in another section).

The period for using FAAB for trades during the NFL off-season starts the first weekend of the NFL Rookie Draft, and ends with the beginning of the NFL pre-season.

The period for using FAAB for trades for the NFL regular season starts with the beginning of the NFL pre-season, and ends at the end of Week 12 of the regular season.

Only the current year's FAAB can be used in trade
