DRAFT RULES & DATES: The draft will be held online, at our site’s live draft room to begin at 5pm PT / 8pm ET. If for some reason you are not going to be on time, you need to use the pre draft feature in the draft room. In the event of no show, the site will auto select for your team. This is a serpentine draft, meaning if you select 1st in round one, you will select last in the round two. This snake/serpentine will continue through round eighteen. The draft timer is set for ninety seconds.
TRANSACTION RULES: Transactions may be made through the 10th week of the season. No roster moves are to be allowed after that point. Free agent pickups are worst to first each round determined by standings. ***Add/drop deadline is Wednesday @ 9pm PST***
All the transactions need to go through the commissioner via email. ***Trade deadline is Thursday @ 9pm PST*** for the players to be eligible for that week. In the event there is a Thursday game all transactions must be submitted by Wednesday 9pm PST.
Trades. Both teams involved in a trade are required to email the commissioner before the trade deadline, for the commissioner to announce a trade(s) to the league. If an owner wants to protest a trade, it must be done within 24 hours after being announced. To overturn a trade, five owners would need to protest, by emailing the commissioner.
STARTING LINEUPS: Each franchise owner is responsible for submitting their starting lineup via the MFL web site. Starting lineups can be made up until first kickoff on Sunday 10 am PDT. In the event there is a game(s) on Thursday players to be used from the Thursday games are to be submitted before kickoff. Failure to set your lineup in time, your starting lineup will be carried over from the prior week. If a team fails to setup a lineup a second time, the commissioner will assume control and field the best lineup each week for the remainder of the season. The team will be immediately exiled from the league. Further, team would be excluded from postseason play. Next seeded team would replace exiled team.
Starting lineups will consist of the following:
1 DEFENSE/SPECIAL TEAM
1 FLEX POSITION RB, WR or TE (YOUR CHOICE)
We will be using fantasyauctioneer.com to conduct our draft. Get familiar with it.
DISPUTES OR PROBLEMS: Direct any and all disputes to the commissioner. If not resolved by the commissioner, then an emergency session of the owners will take place.
