We only keep one player -- and it's an option, not a mandate -- so we basically redraft (auction) every year.

 

If you're looking to set up a full keeper league, others in here are far better qualified than I to assist.

So many variables, such as how many keepers 1 player up to full dynasty where you keep an entire roster.

 

Must you keep x number of players, or is it optional, and if so, what if any cost is assosciated with keeping players.

 

This probably should go in the advice forum, and I think there have been a couple threads in there (I know I made a lengthy reply to one covering a lot of the questions that need to be answered), though I can't remember offhand when this was, but Iwant to venture a guess of Mid-January.

Here are my rules, perhaps if you find one useful tidbit, it was worth the read. The first 8 paragraphs deal with keepers and drafting.

 

PROTECTED ROSTERS: MUST CONSIST OF 1QB, 1RB, 1WR, AND TWO OF THE FOLLOWING THREE, TIGHTEND, KICKER, OR DEFENSE. PROTECTED ROSTERS ARE DUE MONDAY, 8-11-06

 

DRAFT PROCEDURE: STARTING WITH YOUR ORIGINAL 5 PROTECTED PLAYERS MADE UP OF 1QB, 1RB, 1WR, AND 2 OF THE FOLLOWING, TIGHTEND, KICKER, OR DEFENSE. YOU DRAFT UNTIL YOU FILL OUT YOUR ROSTER AS FOLLOWS, 2QB, 3RB, 3WR, 2TE, 2K, AND 1 DEFENSE, NOT NECESSARILY IN THAT ORDER, FOR A TOTAL OF 13 PLAYERS. SOME TEAMS, BECAUSE OF TRADES OR OTHER REASONS, MAY NOT HAVE THE SAME NUMBER OF PLAYERS AT THIS POINT.

 

TEAMS ENDING THE DRAFT WITH LESS THAN 16 PLAYERS, BECAUSE OF TRADES OR MOST OTHER REASONS, MAY FILL THEIR ROSTER AT THAT TIME WITH NO FEES INCURRED. SHOULD A TEAM LEAVE THE DRAFT EARLY THEY MUST FILL THEIR ROSTER THROUGH THE WAIVER PROCESS AND WITH THE ASSOCIATED FEES.

 

IF A TEAM LEAVES THE DRAFT BEFORE THE SUPPLEMENTAL ROUNDS FOR PERSONAL REASONS THEY MAY FILL THEIR ROSTER WHEN THE FIRST WAIVER ORDER RUNS, ABOUT 48 HOURS, THE LEAGUE WILL WAIVE THE FEES. ANY TRANSACTION AFTER THAT WILL BE CHARGED.

 

THE INITIAL WAIVER ORDER WILL BE SET MANUALLY, HIGHEST SEED THROUGH LOWEST SEED. (THE ORDER OF ROUND SIX FOR EXAMPLE)

 

ROUNDS ONE THROUGH FIVE ARE WEIGHTED BASED ON PREVIOUS YEAR'S PERFORMANCE.

 

ROUNDS SIX THROUGH EIGHT BEGIN WITH THE HIGHEST SEEDED TEAM FROM THE PREVIOUS YEAR AND SERPENTINES UNTIL ROUND NINE.

 

THE SUPPLEMENTAL ROUNDS, NINE, TEN, AND ELEVEN BEGIN WITH THE HIGHEST SEEDED TEAM AS WELL AND SERPENTINES FROM THERE. THERE ARE NO REQUIREMENTS FOR POSITIONS DRAFTED IN THESE SUPPLEMENTAL ROUNDS. MEANING IF YOU ARE SHORT OF REQUIRED PLAYERS AT ANY POSITION, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO FILL THOSE SPOTS IN THE SUPPLEMENTAL ROUNDS. SO LONG AS YOU HAVE THE REQUIRED AMOUNT AT EACH POSITION WHEN YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE DRAFT DAY. THE DRAFT IS OVER AT THE CONCLUSION OF THE 11TH ROUND. SHOULD ANY TEAM NOT HAVE A FULL ROSTER OF 16 THEY MAY CHOOSE TO SELECT THEIR REMAINING PLAYERS AT THIS TIME.

 

TEAMS SHORT OF THE SIXTEEN MAN ROSTER LIMIT WILL PARTICIPATE IN CONSECUTIVE ROUNDS FOLLOWING THE SERPENTINE PATTERN ESTABLISHED IN THE SUPPLEMENTAL ROUNDS. TEAMS CONTINUE TO DRAFT UNTIL THEY REACH THEIR ROSTER LIMIT.

 

WAIVERS: $1 EACH WITH NO LIMITS, WE USE THE CBS SPORTSLINE WAIVERS PROCESS. THESE RULES AND PROCEDURES ARE AVAILABLE BY USING THE HELP FEATURE ON THE LEAGUE HOME PAGE. ROSTERS ARE FROZEN FOR THE ENTIRE PLAYOFFS, INCLUDING PLAYERS ON NON-INJURY RESERVE. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO UNDERSTAND THE WAIVER PROCESS IN FULL.

 

YOU ARE REQUIRED TO MAINTAIN A SPECIFIC ROSTER MAKE-UP, DESCRIBED ABOVE. CBS SPORTSLINE CAN NOT BE SET UP TO PREVENT DEVIATION FROM THESE REQUIREMENTS. IN THE EVENT A TEAM DROPS A SECOND TIGHT-END OR KICKER OR IN ANY OTHER WAY VIOLATES ROSTER REQUIREMENTS THE FOLLOWING WILL HAPPEN. WHEN THE ILLEGAL MOVE IS DISCOVERED IT WILL BE REVERSED AT ONCE AND THE LEAGUE WILL BE NOTIFIED VIA EMAIL. ANY TEAM IS THEN FREE TO ATTEMPT TO SIGN THAT PLAYER THROUGH THE CURRENT WAIVER ORDER. THE WAIVER FEES FOR ANY ILLEGAL MOVES ARE NOT WAIVED.

 

THE RESULTING ROSTER FROM THE REVERSAL IS THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE TEAM'S OWNER. MEANING ANY DEADLINES NOW PAST ARE STILL IN EFFECT AND COULD RESULT IN AN INCOMPLETE OR UNWANTED STARTING LINE-UP. BECAUSE AN ILLEGAL LINE-UP RESULTS IN ZERO POINTS FOR THAT TEAM IT WOULD RESULT IN A FORFEIT WIN FOR THEIR OPPONENT. THE NFFL WILL MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO AVOID FORFEIT GAMES. AT THE SAME TIME THE NFFL WILL NOT MANAGE AN OWNERS TEAM TO THE POINT OF DECISION MAKING. THE LEAGUE WILL REVERSE AN ILLEGAL MOVE EVEN IF THE WEEKLY GAMES HAVE STARTED AND IN THIS CASE NO EFFORT WOULD BE MADE TO MAKE LEGAL THE ROSTER.

 

ON A CASE BY CASE BASIS THE NFFL WILL INSERT A PLAYER ON A BYE WEEK IF ONE IS READILY AVAILABLE ON THE ROSTER AND NO DEADLINES HAVE PAST.

 

THE LITMUS TEST WILL BE THIS: THE NFFL WILL NOT INSERT A PLAYER THAT HAS A CHANCE OF SCORING POINTS WITHOUT A REQUEST FROM THE TEAM'S OWNER. THE LEAGUE WOULD RATHER A FORFEIT WIN THAN FOR LEAGUE OFFICIALS TO AFFECT THE OUTCOME THROUGH A DECISION MAKING PROCESS INVOLVING A STARTER.

 

THE NFFL COMMISSIONER HAS THE ABILITY TO MANAGE YOUR ROSTER ON YOUR BEHALF. SUCH REQUESTS SHOULD BE MADE AS EARLY IN THE WEEK AS POSSIBLE. THE NFFL MAKES NO GAURUNTEE THAT ANY SUCH REQUEST WILL BE RECEIVED AND IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST OR UN-EXECUTED REQUESTS.

 

HOWEVER ANY REQUEST THAT IS RECEIVED AND CAN BE EXECUTED BEFORE THE APPLICABLE DEADLINE WILL BE GRANTED. MEANING, RECEIVING THE ROSTER REQUEST, DOES NOT NECESSARILY MEAN THE MOVE IS GRANTED. IT MUST BE EXECUTED ON THE WEBSITE FOR THE MOVE TO BE VALID. THE TIME STAMP AT CBS SPORTSLINE WILL BE THE DETERMINING FACTOR IN WHETHER OR NOT A REQUEST WAS EXECUTED PRIOR TO THE DEADLINE.

 

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL A ROSTER REQUEST BE GRANTED AFTER THE WEEK'S NORMAL ROSTER DEADLINE, REGARDLESS OF WHEN THE REQUEST WAS SENT. YOU WILL RECEIVE NOTICE EXPLAINING ACTIONS REGARDING ALL REQUESTS.

 

INJURED RESERVE: YOU MAY PLACE A PLAYER ON INJURED RESERVE ONCE THAT PLAYER IS PLACED ON INJURED RESERVE BY THEIR NFL TEAM. INJURED RESERVE REQUESTS WILL BE HANDLED THROUGH THE COMMISSIONER AS THERE IS NO SUCH FUNCTION AT CBS SPORTSLINE.

 

YOU MAY ONLY PLACE A PLAYER ON I.R. IF HE WAS INJURED WHILE ON YOUR ROSTER. IF YOU ADD OR TRADE FOR A PLAYER WHO IS ON I.R. HE MUST TAKE UP A REGULAR ROSTER POSITION.

 

EACH TEAM IS LIMITED TO 2 PLAYERS ON INJURED RESERVE. THEY MUST REMAIN THERE OR BE WAIVED TO MAKE ROOM FOR ANOTHER PLAYER YOU WISH TO PLACE ON I.R. SO IF PLAYER (A) AND (:D ARE ON I.R. AND YOU WISH TO REPLACE ONE WITH PLAYER ©, PLAYER (A) OR (:D MUST BE WAIVED FROM I.R. AND YOU WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO THE WAIVED INJURED PLAYER.

 

MOVING A PLAYER TO I.R. AND SIGNING HIS REPLACEMENT IS FREE OF CHARGE. THERE IS NO PRIORITY REGARDING THE SIGNING OF INJURED RESERVE REPLACEMENTS. MEANING THE MOVE IS FREE OF CHARGE BUT YOU ARE STILL SUBJECT TO THE CURRENT WAIVER ORDER. MAKE SURE THE LEAGUE HAS GRANTED A PLAYERS INJURED RESERVE STATUS BEFORE YOU DROP THEM.

 

NON-INJURY RESERVE: SUBJECT TO CHANGE AND IS AT THE SOLE DISCRETION OF THE LEAGUE COMMISSIONER.

 

A PLAYER WHO RETIRES WHILE ON A NFFL ROSTER MAY REMAIN THE PROPERTY OF THAT SAME NFFL TEAM. A NFFL TEAM RETAINS THE RIGHTS TO SAID PLAYER FOR A PERIOD OF UP TO 1 YEAR FROM THE DATE OF RETIREMENT. ONCE THE YEAR IS UP THE PLAYER MUST BE MOVED TO THE TEAMS ACTIVE 16 MAN ROSTER OR WAIVED. A PLAYER ON NON-INJURY RESERVE MAY BE TRADED TO ANOTHER TEAM AND MAINTAIN THE PLAYER'S RESERVE STATUS FOR THE REMAINING TIME OF THE ORIGINAL YEAR.

 

NON-INJURY RESERVE MAY ALSO BE APPLIED TO ANY OFFICIAL NFL SUSPENSION OR INDIVIDUAL NFL TEAM SUSPENSIONS. THESE PLAYERS MAY ALSO BE TRADED WITH THEIR RESERVE STATUS INTACT FOR THE LENGTH OF THE SUSPENSION. AN NFFL FRANCHISE MAY ONLY HAVE ONE PLAYER ON NON-INJURY RESERVE. REQUESTS TO PLACE A PLAYER ON NON-INJURY RESERVE MUST BE SUBMITTED TO THE LEAGUE COMMISSIONER FOR APPROVAL.

 

A PLAYER ON NON-INJURY RESERVE MUST BE ACTIVATED TO YOUR ACTIVE ROSTER BEFORE ROSTERS ARE FROZEN FOR THE PLAYOFFS. ASSUMING YOU WISH TO USE THE PLAYER DURING THE PLAYOFF PERIOD INCLUDING THE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME. PLAYERS ON NON-INJURY RESERVE DO NOT COUNT TOWARD YOUR 16 MAN ROSTER LIMIT.

 

SIGNING A NON-INJURY RESERVE PLAYERS REPLACEMENT IS ALSO DONE THROUGH THE WAIVER PROCESS WITH THE ASSOCIATED FEE AND SUBJECT TO THE CURRENT WAIVER ORDER.

 

TRADING OFF-SEASON: YOU CAN START TRADING 07-24-06 THROUGH 8-14-06 WHICH IS WHEN THE PROTECTED ROSTERS ARE DUE. ANY TRADES MADE BETWEEN 07-24-06 AND 08-11-06 ARE FREE OF CHARGE. THEN THERE IS A FREEZE UNTIL THE COMPLETION OF THE DRAFT ON 08-26-06. ALL ROSTER MOVES WILL THEN COST YOU. YOU CAN NOT TRADE ANY PICKS BEYOND THE FIFTH ROUND.

 

TRADES: $2 INVOLVING PLAYERS OR DRAFT PICKS. ALL TRADES MUST BE APPROVED BY THE COMMISSIONER. THERE IS NO LIMIT ON TRADES. THE TRADE DEADLINE IS 11-18-06.

 

REGULAR SEASON TIE-BREAKERS: THE TIE-BREAKER IS TOTAL POINTS OF RESERVE PLAYERS. THIS, THE ONLY REGULAR SEASON TIE-BREAKER. THE REGULAR SEASON TIE-BREAKER WILL APPLY TO WEEKLY WINNERS AS WELL.

 

THE WINNER OF A TIE-BREAKING SITUATION RECEIVES ONE POINT FOR THE WIN AND HAS THAT POINT ADDED TO THEIR WEEKLY AND YEARLY TOTALS FOR PURPOSES OF DETERMINING HOME FIELD ADVANTAGE IN THE PLAYOFFS AND WEEKLY WINNINGS.

 

THE COMMISSIONER HAS THE ABILITY TO MODIFY SCORING. IN THE EVENT A SCORING ERROR IS DISCOVERED WE WILL MAKE THE APPROPRIATE CORRECTIONS. HOWEVER, ONCE THE NEXT WEEKS ROSTERS ARE DUE THE SCORES ARE CONSIDERED FINAL AND NO CHANGES WILL BE MADE. ROSTERS WILL BE CONSIDERED DUE WHEN THE WEEK'S EARLIEST STARTER IS DUE FOR ANY TEAM.

3. RESOURCE EVIDENCE WILL BE COLLECTED AND SUBMITTED, TO AND BY THE COMMISSIONER.

4. CON-CURRENTLY CBS SPORTSLINE MAY BE CONTACTED WITH A REQUEST FOR HELP AND/OR CLARIFICATION OF THE STATS IN QUESTION.

5. IF THE ERROR INVOLVES INTERPRETATION OF OUR LEAGUE RULES THE COMMISSIONER WILL ISSUE A DECISION. IF IT IS A STATISTICAL CBS SPORTSLINE ERROR AND CAN BE CORRECTED BEFORE THE DEADLINE IT WILL BE.

 

PLAYOFFS: SIX TEAMS QUALIFY FOR THE PLAYOFFS. THE THREE DIVISION WINNERS AND THE NEXT THREE WILDCARD TEAMS. PLAYOFF SCHEDULE WILL ALWAYS HAVE THE BEST REMAINING TEAM PLAYING THE WORST REMAINING TEAM. THE TOP TWO DIVISION WINNERS SHALL HAVE A BYE THE FIRST ROUND OF THE PLAYOFFS. THIS RULE SUPERCEDES ANY HUMAN ERROR THAT MAY OCCUR IN THE SCHEDULING OF PLAYOFF GAMES.

 

THE SIX NON-PLAYOFF TEAMS WILL ENTER A MANDATORY SUPPLEMENTAL PLAYOFF TOURNAMENT. THE COST IS $5 PER TEAM AND THE WINNER TAKES ALL. NORMAL PLAYOFF SEEDING, TIEBREAKERS, AND HOME FIELD ADVANTAGE WILL APPLY. THE RESULTS OF THIS TOURNAMENT DOES NOT EFFECT THE DRAFT ORDER.

 

PLAYOFF SEEDING TIE-BREAKERS ARE AVAILABLE BELOW.

 

HOME FIELD ADVANTAGE IN THE PLAYOFFS IS 2 POINTS.

 

THE FIRST TIE-BREAKER IN THE PLAYOFFS WILL BE TOTAL POINTS OF RESERVE PLAYERS. IF THE GAME IS STILL A TIE THE GAME WILL BE AWARDED TO THE HIGHER SEEDED PLAYOFF TEAM.
