Live Online Draft
Each leagues draft will take place in the LIVE ONLINE DRAFT ROOM. Owners should try to arrive 10 minutes before their draft is scheduled to begin. (Once again, it is strongly suggested that you familiarize yourself with the predrafting process and the "LIVE DRAFT MODE" before your draft actually begins.) Each team will have the opportunity to predraft for any round before and during the draft. We recommend predrafting, because it speeds up the draft and enables owners to be prepared when it is their turn to draft.
- After the Veteran Draft, all owners are allowed to place up to five (5)
players on the Practice (taxi) squad and three players on Injured Reserve
(IR). Once a player is placed on IR, the player cannot be used during the
- Owners are not required to start/draft a Tight End. You can choose to
draft/start a TE if you like or not, but you must have three receivers in
your starting lineup.
- Each player can be on only 1 roster per league.
- Partial lineups are not allowed.
-Owners will draft an NFL team's entire defensive unit. Defensive units will
count as one player.
If an owner is AWOL, the Commissioner has the discretion to freeze the owners franchise. Franchises that have been frozen by the Commissioner can only be unfrozen by that franchises owner. A written explaination must be submitted to the commissioner prior to the next scheduled week's kickoff. If an explaination is not submitted by the next scheduled week's kickoff time, the franchise will be managed by the Commissioner until a replacement owner is found. Commissioner owned franchises are NOT eligible for cash prizes. Should a Commissioner owned franchise become eligible to receive a cash prize, the prize will be divided evenly among the remaing five (5) playoff teams.
Grounds For Removal
The following conditions classify an owner as AWOL and eligible to have their franchise frozen:
- An owner fails to attend the Live Online Draft for two (2) consecutive
- An owner fails to submit an active starting lineup more than three weeks in
any given season.
