This is a 16-team invitation league. Meaning the 16 owners will be given invites to take over a franchise. Once the invites have been handed out the owners are allowed to hire a staff, the staff will consist of an Offensive Coordinator and a Defensive Coordinator. The OC and DC handle the day to day stuff on their sides of the ball while the owner handles budgeting, trades and the like. The owners are allowed to fire any of their staff members without notice if they feel they aren't pulling their weight. Owners can hire whoever they want with no limitations except they cannot hire staff-members of another team, or someone that has quit another team in the last 30 days. They are allowed to hire someone that has been fired immediately. This is an auction league, and eventually a dynasty but in year 1 there will be no contracts since a lot of the teams are going to be new to IDP and auction style leagues and I'd rather they don't shoot themselves in the foot for multiple years.
The current lineups (subject to change until date the auction starts) are:
QB/RB/WR/WR/TE/Offensive Flex/K/DL/DL/LB/LB/DB/DB/Defensive Flex. The roster size has not been decided yet, but it will be somewhere around 30-35 to facilitate dynasty options in the future.
The scoring will be standard/yardage heavy (10yds rush/rec = 1 point, 25 yards passing = 1 point, all TDs = 6 points with 1 point per reception. The defensive scoring will be tackle heavy with 2 points per tackle, 1 point per assist, 1 point per pass defense, 4 points for all big plays, and 6 points for all defensive TDs. There will be no points given for return or defensive yardage.
Please PM me or reply in this thread. More to come, but this is the very basic idea behind the league.
We currently have about 7 owners (out of 16). After the owners are set in stone, we'll take care of the OCs and the DCs. We'd love to have guys that have done an IDP/Auction league before get owner spots, but that experience isn't necessary for the league. Thanks guys, should be fun.
