Starting a unique, very competitive 24 team auction dynasty league on yahoo. There is over $1,000 in prizes with our league size! We will be using leaguesafe to ensure that everyone is paid what they are owed for a job well done.
A $10 deposit is also required for the next season every year, so that if an owner drops out/disappears we are able to find another owner at a discounted rate. Deposits are credited to your 2013 fee when you return next year, so you would only owe $40.
1st Place - $500
2nd Place - $250
3rd Place - $150
4th Place - $100
5th Place - $75
6th Place - $50
Highest Scoring Week of Season - $100
Total: $1,200 100% Payout!
The league is set up to have four divisions of six teams. All four division winners qualify for playoffs, as well as the two best wild card teams based on record. All six teams qualify for a monetary prize. There is also a prize for the highest scoring week of the season (playoffs included, consolation bracket included), giving owners purpose to play the entire season even when out of contention.
The league setup is head to head, standard point totals. No PPR!
QB - 4 points TD, 1 point 25 yards passing, -2 points interception
HB/WR/TE - 6 points TD, 1 point 10 yards rushing/receiving
I know what you're thinking, with 24 teams there is not enough QB's to go around. We've worked around this using the following roster rules:
1 QB Per Team - Teams can never have more than one QB on their roster. This allows every team to have a QB with 8 left in free agency barring injuries/poor performance.
Starting lineups are:
1 HB/WR/TE Flex Position
Defensive Scoring System
Solo Tackles 1 point
Assisted Tackles .5 points
Sacks 4 points
Tackles for a Loss 3 points
Passes Defensed 1 point
Interceptions 6 points
Forced Fumbles 4 points
Fumble Recoveries 2 points
Touchdowns 6 points
Safeties 10 points
Blocked Kicks 6 points
It is an auction based league on yahoo to start things. Every team will have their salary cap and must be under the cap at all times. Teams will elect to keep (10) players every season, allowing for a dynasty feel to the league. Players can be retained each season at 110% of their previous seasons value (ie: If you purchased Aaron Rodgers this year at $40, he can be kept at $44 next season ($40 + 10% ($4) = $44). This puts emphasis on sleepers, as you will get them at a lower rate initially. There is a more complex system in place for contracts, but that will be reserved for when you actually join the league.
To prevent tanking for rookies, the eight worst teams in the league each season will be entered into a draft lottery, where each team has an equal chance to be put at the top of the order. All eight teams will have their draft ordered randomly assigned. This means that if you tank and have the worst record, you still might only end up with the 8th pick in the rookie draft. DO NOT TANK! This draft will occur in early May, after the real NFL draft takes place.
Free Agency Draft
All leftover free agents and rookies will be put into the free agency draft each August. The draft order is based on worst record, and will be that way each round. This is not a snake draft.
The actual inaugural league draft is Thursday August 30th at 8:00 pm eastern. If interested, please email me at thatsportsite AT gmail dot com
Thanks for your time.
