Regular season begins w/the first game of the NFL season.
Regular Season is 13 weeks long. Each team will play 26 games (2 games /week); 4 games vs. Division w/the remaining games distributed among non-division teams.
New Teams - Should a new owner join The Fantasy Football League, taking over a team whose previous owner traded away draft picks, the new owner will have those picks restored. Restored picks will be selected at the end of the original round assigned. The draft will pause while the selection is added.
Draft will be held Monday, September 05, 2020 @ 6:30 PM EST (tentative).
Draft order will be "reverse order" of 2019-20 season finish. Draft will be 16 rounds. All Team Owners must observe roster minimums / maximums.
The Fantasy Football League fees = $110. LeagueSafe emails will be sent before week 2. Fees are due by Week 2 (I will allow late payment, but LeagueSafe charges their own late fee).
Starting lineups include - 1QB, 2RB, 3WR, 1TE, 1RB/WR/TE, 1K, 1DST.
Rosters can contain no more than 1 player on IR (must be listed as out (O) or questionable (Q) on official League platform). When player is listed as probable (P) or day-to-day (T) on official NFL injury report, Team Owner must adjust roster accordingly via add/drop.
I will do my best to ensure NO TEAM plays with an empty spot in their lineup.
Keeper Rules - Players are ranked using The Fantasy Football League's 2019 final stats. Players ranked 1-12 receive a "Round 1" designation; players ranked 13-24 receive a "Round 2" designation; players ranked 25-36 receive a "Round 3" designation; etc.
Each team will receive a copy of League Team Rosters w/assigned round designations.
Each team may keep up to 3 players from the current (2019) roster, however, only 1 player per round designation may be kept. Example - Should a roster contain both Aaron Rogers (ranked #1 overall / Round 1 designation) and Ezekiel Elliot (ranked #7 overall / Round 1 designation), only 1 can be kept.
By opting to keep a player w/a specific round designation, teams will forfeit their pick in that round. Example - Should a team opt to "keep" Aaron Rogers (Round 1 designation), Rogers will serve as that team's pick in Round 1.
Team "keepers" must be identified 5 days prior to draft. Deadline for Keepers - Monday, August 31 2020. Each team will receive a list of Keepers (protected players). These players may not be drafted and will be assigned accordingly as draft progresses.
Should a Team have multiple picks in a round, the owner can decide at which position to slot the Keeper.
Trades - Trades will be allowed prior to naming of Keepers. It is preferable that all trades are equitable (player for player / player for draft pick). 2-for-1 trades / picks-for-players will be permitted.
A player's Round value is based on last season's overall ranking. Trading a player cannot change his end-of-season rank and therefore could not change his Round value. Should a team trade a draft pick for a player, and keep that player, that team must forfeit its pick equal to that player's Round value. The team also forfeits the pick traded for the player.
Off-season trading will end on Sunday, August 30, 2020. No off-season trades may be completed after the deadline for Keeper identification.
Schedule - League schedule = 25 games. Each team will play 9 Division games (3x/opponent) and 16 games outside division (each opponent 2x).
Any proposed trade that is accepted will be considered valid and will be enforced w/o exception.
- Roster limits must be maintained when proposing / accepting trades.
- While it's appreciated for even swaps to be offered, each team is ultimately responsible for only his own roster when proposing/accepting trades. Once a trade is accepted I will notify teams of any roster violations the transaction my cause.
- If a player is offered for trade prior to Thursday night game, that player cannot be active in the proposing team's lineup.
- A verbal or email commitment does not constitute a transaction. Trades must be proposed and accepted on the league site in order to be enforced.
League Trade Deadline is Week 10. Waiver moves are permitted through playoffs.
Waiver Transactions - Waiver period begins on Tuesday morning after the 1st Monday Night game of the season and ends on Thursday @ 6PM EST. Waiver process is a "blind bid" system. Each team begins w/a Waiver "bank" of $45. Bidding for free agents begins @ $1. No team can see another team's bid. Free Agent will be awarded to the team w/the highest bid on Thursday @ 6PM.
After Waiver Period each week teams will be able to perform free agent add/drop up until Sunday, 1PM EST. Free Agent cost is $2 per add/drop.
Teams are limited to a total 3 (three) Waiver/Free Agent transactions per week. Each Waiver "win" /Free Agent transaction will be deducted from Team's $45 Waiver "bank". Once Team Owner empties the $45 bank, he can no longer perform Waiver/Free Agent transactions.
Playoffs will begin Week 14. There will be 6 (six) Teams eligible for playoffs - 3 Division winners + 3 Wild Card Teams. Teams will be seeded. Top 2 Teams will receive a bye and the remaining schdule will be as follows:
Week 14 - Top 2 Teams - bye / Division Winner 3 vs. Wild Card 3 / Wild Card 1 vs. Wild Card 2
- Top 2 non-playoff teams - bye / Remaining 4 play best v worst
Week 15 - Top Seed vs. Lowest Seeded Winner / 2nd Seed vs Highest Seeded Winner
- Top non-playoff vs. Worst Record Remaining / 2nd non-playoff vs other team
Week 16 - The Fantasy Football League Championship Game
- The Fantasy Football "Chump" Game
Tiebreakers (Within Division) Seeded Tiebreaker (2 Team)
1st Tiebreaker - H-2-H 1st Tiebreaker - H-2-H
2nd Tiebreaker - Record vs. Common Opponents 2nd Tiebreaker - Record vs. Common Opponents**
3rd Tiebreaker - Total Points 3rd Tiebreaker - Record vs. Division Winners
4th Tiebreaker - Total Points vs. Common Opponents 4th Tiebreaker - Total Points
5th Tiebreaker - QB Total Points 5th Tiebreaker - Total Points vs. Common Opponents
6th Tiebreaker - Total Points vs. Division Winners
In the event of a multiple Team tie (3 or more) for Wild Card Playoff seeding, Tiebreakers will be applied & top Team will be awarded next top Wild Card position. Remaining teams will be re-seeded & Tiebreaker process will begin again among remaining Teams only. This process will continue until all Wild Card positions are filled.
** "Common Opponents" is defined as teams against which all tied teams have played an equal number of games. Each team plays Division Opponents 3x and all other teams 2x. Should tied teams come from 2 Divisions, their "Common Opponents" would be teams in the 3rd Division (If tied teams play in the Shivakamini and the Yobogoya Divisions, "Common Opponents" would be teams the El Cunado Division).
Payout** - The Fantasy Football League Championship Winner - $1000
The Fantasy Football League Championship Loser - $200
The Fantasy Football League Chump - $100
**Any owner who does not pay his $110 League Fee, will not eligible for prize payouts. It is not acceptable to wait until the end of the season and "pay your fee directly toward another team's winnings".
League fees are invoiced via LeagueSafe. League fees can be paid to the Commissioner via Paypal, personal check, money order and I will deposit them and pay LeagueSafe. If an owner does not have a Paypal / checking account, and cannot secure a money order, they probably shouldn't be playing fantasy football for cash.
