We have formed a new league on the MFL site.
The league is "Insane Asylum"
We opened signups last Tuesday and have 10 guys already signed up. We want to finish signups so that we can schedule the start date for our draft.
We use a years contract type of league (not salary based). I have found this to be a great setup.
IDP - PPR - 45 man roster + 5 man taxi squad.
During the initial draft serpentine (3rd round reversal) you draft your team and each player gets a contract between 1-4 years. You take the total number of players drafted and multiply that by 2.5 that gives you the total number of years you may assign (rounded up if ending in .5). We have 45 rounds so you have a total of 113 years worth of contracts to assign.
Rookies are drafted in a separate draft and automatically get a 5 year contract during the rookie draft. There is a 5 man taxi squad that allows you to keep players on there for an unlimited number of years before moving them to the active roster. After they are moved to the active roster they may never be moved back to Taxi.
Waivers - all waiver claims get a 1 year contract. If the player is a rookie according to MFL they may be moved to taxi squad before they are on the active roster for a game and they are then given a 5 year contract.
FA auction - Future years there is a FA auction which includes all players that had the contracts run out. The same contract system is used after the FA auction 2.5 years for each player you draft.
Franchise and Transition tags -
Franchise - Each year you are allowed to franchise a player that player is given a 4 year contract and does not come up for auction.
Transition - Each year you are allowed to also transition tag a player. Those players are put up for auction before the FA auction begins. When the auction ends for your player you are given the option if you want to match the winning bid. The player is the first of your FA's from the FA auction
Those are some basic rules of the league. It is a great setup and we have been doing a similar league since 2007 without a big turnover of owners.
Sorry I am not allowed to post a link here but if you go to myfantasyleague(dot)com and search for Insane Asylum we are the only league listed.
