  1. No rush to the waiver wire and point calculations will happen up to Sunday since there is no Thursday game 😁
  2. A trade is proposed in a $ league that I am Co-Commish of. Lamar Jackson for Newton and Malcolm Brown.
  3. So we have a GM in our keeper league who went all in for the title last year and traded away picks. His squad this year is not great and he's in for a long season. Yesterday he traded Chubb and a 16th rounder for Fournette and a 2nd rounder. I don't have a problem with the trade itself from a keeper league standpoint. But doing it prior to week 1... does this compromise the league or is it business as usual? Usually we see the draft picks being moved closer to the deadline. I think trading draft picks and blowing up the team this early could start a trend for all the teams who had some increased draft capital to start with to then go all out and pick the corpse of the seller to build a juggernaut very early, which sucks the fun out of it for the rest of the league. Thoughts?

  5. Alright - after thinking more about it, I've decided to remove the whole taxi squad vs IR thing - we will just plan on using IR to keep it simple. It was merely for the back end of things, but I fear it may make things a bit more confusing. I've included the entire section on rosters - even with the new IR wording (even though it isn't quite official). I would like to propose rule 5.8 to the Rosters portion of the rules (to reflect what we have talked about with COVID implications) to read as such: 5. Rosters 5.1: Number of Players/Position: The maximum number of players on a team’s roster is twenty (20) players. Position limits are not set and a team may have any number of players at each position. 5.1.2: A team may exceed the maximum number of players after a draft, but must cut the roster down to 20 players the Sunday before the beginning of the season. If a team does not submit any roster or contacts by the deadline, the team will be fined 10 credits immediately and 5 credits per day until the roster and contracts are submitted. If a team submits a roster and contracts by the deadline, but the roster exceeds the aforementioned 20 player limit or the contracts exceed 40 years (see rule 8.3), then the team will be notified and fined 5 credits immediately and 5 credits per day until their roster and/or contracts are fixed. 5.1.3: A team may, at no time during the season, exceed the roster player or contract year cap limits except to resolve newly acquired players. Owners have 24 hours to resolve newly acquired players. After 24 hours, the team will be fined 5 credits immediately and an additional 5 credits per day until the player cap or contract year caps are resolved. (added mid-season 2018) 5.2: Position Eligibility: Player position eligibility will be determined by what position the player is listed as at www.nfl.com, the official web site of the NFL. In the event of a player being listed in multiple positions, the player is available to be inserted in the starting lineup at any position listed, provided that is what the owner lists him as. i.e. If Keith Byars is listed as a TE and RB, he may be put into either position on a team. 5.3: Injured Reserve: Each dynasty team owner will have two (2) injured reserve slots. A player must be listed as injured reserved (IR) by the NFL's Injury report prior to a dynasty owner placing that player on their teams injured reserve (IR). Once a player is assigned to a dynasty teams IR list, that player will not be allowed to return to a dynasty's team’s active roster until the player has been reinstated from the NFL's Injury reports. 5.3.1.1: A dynasty owner has the right to waive/release a player from their dynasty team’s injured reserve list. That player will keep the IR designation until the player has been reinstated from the NFL’s injured reserved (IR) list. The waiver rules as outlined in (Section 15. Waivers), shall apply to waived/released players. 5.3.1.2: A dynasty owner has the right to trade a player from their dynasty team’s injured reserve list. That player will keep the IR designation with the new team. The new team must have room, or make room on their IR list or active roster to accommodate the new player. Should the new team need to waive/release an existing player on their IR list, the waiver rules as outlined in (Section 15. Waivers), shall apply to waived/released players. 5.3.2: When a player has been reinstated from the NFL's Injury report, the dynasty owners shall have a seven (7) day grace period to reactivate, waive/release or trade that player from their dynasty team’s IR list. A [TR4] [P05] seven-day grace period will begin at 12:00 A.M. (midnight) the day the NFL has officially removed the player from the injured reserve (IR) list. Example (NFL: Nick Foles activated by NFL on Nov. 6, 2019 @ 2:00 P.M.; League of Savvy Gentlemen: Nick Foles grace period activation starts, the same day, Nov. 6, 2019 @ 12:00 A.M. (Midnight)). 5.3.2.1: A player coming off of a dynasty owners’ injured reserve (IR) list that is in the 7-day grace period may be reactivated to their team’s active roster. The dynasty owners’ teams will not be allowed to exceeded the maximum roster limit outlined in (Section 5. Rosters) by reactivating an IR player. 5.3.2.2: A player coming off of a dynasty owners’ injured reserve (IR) list that is in the 7-day grace period may be waived/released from the team in lieu of replacing the player to their active roster. The Waiver rules as outlined in (Section 15. Waivers), shall apply to waived/released players. 5.3.2.3: A player coming off of a dynasty owners’ injured reserve (IR) list that is in the 7-day grace period may be traded to a new team in lieu of replacing the player to their active roster, unless the season is in the no transaction period as outlined in (Section 12. No transaction Period). 5.3.3 Failure for the dynasty team’s owner to remove a player from their injured reserved (IR) list, will result in a 2-credit penalty to the dynasty team owner every 7th day. Should the penalties cause the dynasty owner to have negative amount of credits, the credits will be withheld from their following years allotted credits. 5.4: A player assigned to IR will still count against the contract cap. 5.5: Player Retention: This league is a dynasty league, which means that all players acquired (whether by draft, free agency, or trade) will be kept from year to year. Players may be waived or acquired through free agency and traded among teams. 5.6: If any team carries less than 20 players, 1 contract year must be left unallocated for each open roster slot when contracts are assigned (see rule 8.3). After week 1 this rule is waived. 5.7: Practice Squad: Each team will have 2 additional roster spots designated for the PS. They can only be used for rookies selected in the 3rd through 4th rounds. Players can only remain on the PS for a year and then must either be signed to a contract or cut by the contract deadline the following year. A player can be removed from the PS during the season if another player on your active roster is placed on IR and you have an available contract year. Once removed, the player can only be signed to a 1 year contract and then will become an RFA the following year. 5.8: Covid Provisions: 5.8.1: Covid Players Opting Out: Prior to the start of week 5's games, should a player opt out of the NFL season, a player may be placed on IR as a COVID Reserve player similar to a college player redshirting. This player shall not count towards the current owner's roster limits nor shall they accrue a contract year. After week 5's games, Covid players opting out may be assigned to IR, but they will lose a contract year in March. 5.8.2: Covid Financing: One opening bid on Free Agents shall be reduced to 1 credit (in lieu of 2) per each player that has been assigned to IR per the Covid designation (designated as C or H next to the player's name in MFL).
  6. Proposed amendment to rules: 5.3: Injured Reserve: Each dynasty team owner will have two (2) injured reserve slots. A player must be listed as injured reserved (IR) by the NFL's Injury report prior to a dynasty owner placing that player on their teams injured reserve (IR). Once a player is assigned to a dynasty teams IR list, that player will not be allowed to return to a dynasty's team’s active roster until the player has been reinstated from the NFL's Injury reports. 5.3.1.1: A dynasty owner has the right to waive/release a player from their dynasty team’s injured reserve list. That player will keep the IR designation until the player has been reinstated from the NFL’s injured reserved (IR) list. The waiver rules as outlined in (Section 15. Waivers), shall apply to waived/released players. 5.3.1.2: A dynasty owner has the right to trade a player from their dynasty team’s injured reserve list. That player will keep the IR designation with the new team. The new team must have room, or make room on their IR list or active roster to accommodate the new player. Should the new team need to waive/release an existing player on their IR list, the waiver rules as outlined in (Section 15. Waivers), shall apply to waived/released players. 5.3.2: When a player has been reinstated from the NFL's Injury report, the dynasty owners shall have a seven (7) day grace period to reactivate, waive/release or trade that player from their dynasty team’s IR list. A [TR4] [P05] seven-day grace period will begin at 12:00 A.M. (midnight) the day the NFL has officially removed the player from the injured reserve (IR) list. Example (NFL: Nick Foles activated by NFL on Nov. 6, 2019 @ 2:00 P.M.; League of Savvy Gentlemen: Nick Foles grace period activation starts, the same day, Nov. 6, 2019 @ 12:00 A.M. (Midnight)). 5.3.2.1: A player coming off of a dynasty owners’ injured reserve (IR) list that is in the 7-day grace period may be reactivated to their team’s active roster. The dynasty owners’ teams will not be allowed to exceeded the maximum roster limit outlined in (Section 5. Rosters) by reactivating an IR player. 5.3.2.2: A player coming off of a dynasty owners’ injured reserve (IR) list that is in the 7-day grace period may be waived/released from the team in lieu of replacing the player to their active roster.

  10. Hey Everyone: We are only a few weeks out and (as commissioner)--- I have some questions and could REALLY use some advice--- please... Our league has set roster limits as far as number of players and positions that we draft and roster: 2-QB; 4-RB; 5-WR; 2-TE; 2-K; and 2-DEF. ...Each week, you have start start---in order listed : 1-QB; 2-RB; 2-WR; 1-TE; 1-K; 1_D and 1-FLEX (between RB, WR. and TE)... WE use the FAAB (free agent blinding bidding feature for pickups... Question is: Based on this year and the virus and potential player illness, are we good with these rosters or add an IR spot??? If we add an IR spot---how would and could it it work ---in keeping with our league requirements, etc... ??? I am guessing that CBS has one , but how does it work ---overall on on there??? How would an IR spot affect free agent bidding??? What are your leagues doing as far things like that for this year??? Go with the "status quo" and bid on and pick up players as normal??? Or ride out a 2-3 week COVID break with a player??? We have 2 nights now for pickups: Wednesday and Saturday... Expand those and add nights??? Any ideas or help would REALLY be appreciated!!! Let me know and thanks... -Wally-
  11. proposed amendment to rule: 5.3: Injured Reserve: Each team will have two (2) injured reserve slots. strike verbiage: Once a player is designated IR by a team, he will not be able to return to active duty for the duration of the current season. insert verbiage: (A dynasty owner is required to reactivate or drop any player an owner has placed on a dynasty IR list. If that NFL player has been reactivated by that players NFL team, subsequently being removed from the NFL's official IR list NOTE: A Subsequent roster move may be required so that the maximum roster limit is not exceeded as oulined in rule 5.1). An IR player may be released, however his IR designation stays with him insert verbiage: (if he is still on the NFL's official IR list) whether he is acquired by another team through free agency or trade. The new team must make room for the IR player on that team’s IR squad insert verbiage: (or active roster). Each owner also has the option of waiving the injured player outright (before sending him to IR), thereby sending him to the free agent pool, or simply riding out the injury. A player must be listed as strike verbiage: “out for season” insert verbiage: “injured reserved (IR)” in the NFL Injury Report before he may be placed on IR. (In other words, this is a true IR squad and may not be used to simply hold on to players you don’t wish to play who are not injured.) There are exceptions to this rule. In some cases, a player may not be designated "out for season" but is effectively out for the fantasy season. Cases like this will be handled on an individual basis and will be decided by the commissionership. I would also propose dynasty owners have 3 days from the day the player is activated by the NFL to activate the player to their roster. If that player is not activated to the owners active roster within 3 days said player will be released from their dynasty team and sent to the free agency pool. Contract rules for for a team owner releasing any player(s) shall apply. This is open for discussion & changes, opinions are welcome! If you don't have any edits to the above changes please vote "for" or "against" the proposed rule change.
  12. Looking to fill a second league for 32 man Dynasty, this is a start up. 50 Dollars buy in, top 3 places get money, top place will also get a class ring designed by the winner. Both leagues maybe included in a grand champion type of award (a custom WWE/Sports belt)but ring and if voted on, the belt,are waivable. Ran on MFL, will use LeagueSafe. IDP format, points are balanced so top QB AVG is roughly 25 points, but a Top Safety avg is 25 for a more robust, technical draft and giving value to Defenders, TEs were balanced with a boost as well Breakdown 1 QB, 1 RB, 2 WR 1 TE 1 SuperFlex, 1 DT, 1 DE, 1 LB, 1 CB 1 S, 1 DefFlex. 30 player roster AFC and NFC conferences will draft separately, so 2 16 team drafts. AFC will have a full draft class to draft from, and NFC will have a full roster to draft from. Meaning 2 Saqoun Barkleys in the league. Once initial draft is done, you can trade as you see fit, however you cant have the same player on your team, he could end up in your division however. Due to CoVid we dont have a draft date set yet aiming for mid july or early august but all parties will need to be paid up for draft order and draft, no payment means you will be replaced. If I get alot of interest in this format, and can get 32 others that want in after I get my 11, I'll commish a 3rd league. League rules are here https://docs.google.com/document/d/1jTWmEQzzxDR1gAeQWpIXRMtafcetw6wY8c2Nxm5U6OQ I'll contact you in PM for more of your information. I also ran a test league last year, I'll pm that info after work as well if you want to see how the test league ran in 2019 2019 test league https://www62.myfantasyleague.com/2019/home/53382
  13. Hi everyone! I am a sports journalist based out of LA currently doing a piece on the wild world of loser punishments and side bets in fantasy sports, predominantly football. I am hoping to hear as many stories from you all as possible sharing and recounting the worst bets and punishments that owners in your league or leagues you know about have had to do. If you are based in LA as well, please let me know and I would love to do an interview with you for TV! Thank you all so much I look forward to hearing all the stories you have! P.S. Losing in my league has caused me to piece my ears for the season so I am (unfortunately) well versed in this area.
  14. Hey everyone. I’m hoping you guys can help make some sense of the waiver rules in my Yahoo league. I’ve been commissioner for 7 seasons and thought I had a handle on it but apparently I don’t. I have it set on “Weekly rolling list based on standings”, Weekly Waivers set to “Sunday-Tuesday”, and Waiver Time set time “2 days”. This has me baffled. Yesterday one manager tried to pick up Kareem Hunt Who was a FA just before the game started but got a message saying “player unavailable” (or something to that effect according to him). Then shortly after the game started another manager was able to pick him up. Can anyone explain to me why he was unavailable before the game but became available after? Thanks!
  15. Collusion?

    There’s a guy in our league who hasn’t adjusted his team since week 2. His record is 1-9 and teams are sending him trade requests. The LM has blocked a couple because they were too lopsided but there are some that are fair. I have a suspicion that he joined the league to help his friends win. He always accepts their requests but declines the rest, even if they are fair trades. He’s dropping key players onto the waiver wire. Darren Waller, Christian Kirk, Emanuel Sanders. What should we do? Force him to drop all his players? Should the LM keep vetoing his trades? Very annoying situation.

  17. I am locked out of making any roster moves to my team because I have an IR violation. Derrius Guice has been removed from the real life IR, but he has to remain on my IR in the league. This locks me from making any changes to my roster, including changing the weekly starting lineup. I also have Preston Williams in my starting lineup for this week and he was placed on the IR. So I have a dead spot. If the NFL teams can remove players from the IR, we should have the same ability, especially if rosters get locked when this occurs.
  18. Hello guys, I traded an RB for a WR Friday night, and the trade will process Tuesday morning at 2AM. I had 5 WR before the trade (ESPN allows 6 maximum WR per team), but, on Sunday before game time, I needed a WR so I dropped a D/ST for a WR, putting me at the maximum of 6 WR on my team. Will this cause my trade to not process? Here I am, a day later, unable to drop the WR I added yesterday. Please help! Thank you!
  19. ESPN FF Trade help

    Hello all. Need help. Monday 106 pm ET I traded a few players for Kittle, one of them being Robert Woods on the Rams. Rams are Thursday night football this week. My LM upheld the trade at 239pm Monday as well. Even tho LM upheld trade, will this take another week to process because woods in in Thursday night game? I’ve seen this on forums but with LM pushing trade through I am surprised it has not gone through yet. Also, our league has the 48 hour window, which would have passed by now- as it is Wednesday and the trade was accepted Monday afternoon. Thoughts or guidance please- also would it be worth to try the trade again and LM approve? Thank you
  20. Our league awards ST/D points for ST/D points allowed. Yesterday NE blocked a punt and returned it for a TD. MFL only shows Buffalo allowing 9 points. This would lead me to believe it is not counting the TD as a ST TD Anyone else run into this???
  21. CBS waivers ran a day early?!?!

    Please tell me I’m not the only one this happened to this morning. I’ve run my league with cbs for 15 years. Waivers have been set to process on Wednesday night (actually going thru on Thursday morning at 2am) for years. Never an issue. This morning I wake up to see they processed a day early. Week 1 was fine, but a week later it screws up? It can’t just be my league. I never changed any settings

  25. Deciding Draft Order

    I'm a commissioner and looking for a better way to determine draft order other than randomized by the host site. What's the craziest way you've heard of to determine draft order? I'm thinking of a college "pick'em" for the previous week with confidence points on 10 games. BTW I know all the crazy ways from the show "The League" so you can leave those out. Thank you in advance.
