In 2005-06, twelve managers participated in a 17-round slow veteran draft on the forum. It was followed by a three round rookie draft, which was the reverse order of the initial draft. Rookies and other unowned players (FA's) could be taken in this draft.
Future Seasons: Drafting
Annually, NFL's Finest holds a 3 round rookie draft in May. These three rounds will be the reverse order of last year's regular season standings, with the winner and runner up taking the 12th and 11th picks respectively. The rookie draft will not serpentine.
Keepers & Cuts
Throughout the offseason, roster size is unlimited. In August, each manager has to cut his roster to exactly 23 players.
Trading is allowed throughout the offseason. During the season, all trading will be held by yahoo. The trading deadline is prior to week 12.
If you are making a trade during the season involving draft picks, please post all details on this forum and accept the trade on yahoo. I will process the trade on yahoo and also update the future rookie pick threads on this forum. During the offseason, post all trades on this forum.
During the season, there will be a one day waiver period on free agents. The waiver wire closes after the championship game and reopens on the Yahoo site in August. During the season, a manager may only acquire an unclaimed player through the yahoo database. In the offseason, free agents may only be acquired through the draft.
If there is conclusive evidence that a manager has "tanked" in order to acquire a better draft spot the following season, the manager may be dismissed from the league.
