Need some help with league types

Postby road_rash05 » Sun Aug 13, 2006 3:13 pm

This is my second year playing and I'm trying to get my draft strategy and have this problem. As I read draft threads people keep referring to leagues using terms I dont know. Also the draft advice changes based on the style of league. Here are the two I am seeing most often but please offer up any others that are common.

Whats a Dynasty league?

Whats a redraft league?

Any other "special" league types I should know about?

Thanks in advance.

A Dynasty league is a keeper league. Generally when you refer a Dynasty league as opposed to just a keeper league it means that you keep most of your team as opposed to just a few players.

A redraft league is a league where you draft (or redraft) at the beginning of every season. Every year everyone starts off fresh.

The only other type I can think of is a suicide league where each week players pick one NFL team to win their game. And you can't reuse a team once you've picked them. But that's not fantasy football so much as it is more NFL. But you'll see it every now and again.

Oh, and you'll also see auction leagues vs. snake draft which refers to how you get your players. Auctions you bid on your roster. Snake draft means you draft like the NFL does, but you, "wrap around" so that the order goes 1-2-3...10-11-12 and then in round 1 and then 12-11-10...3-2-1 in round 2. And then flipping back and forth.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head.

I guess I'm in a redraft league with a snake draft. This will help a lot when reading threads that rank players.

Thanks a ton for the response ;-D
