I need the final team for a fun active league with IDP in its third year. You would take over an existing team in a league which has returned 13 of 14 this season. All money goes to prizes. Here is more information on the league. If interested, post here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Scoring Rules: Yahoo standard
Ten keepers per team.
Four year limit on keepers
Players can receive a four year guaranteed contract according to the following rules.
If more than 42 players of Yahoo’s top 100 players at the time keepers are entered are available in the draft, players in the first 3 rounds receive guaranteed contracts.
If between 28 and 42 players of Yahoo’s top 100 are available in the draft, players in the first 2 rounds receive guaranteed contracts.
If between 14 and 27 players of Yahoo’s top 100 are available in the draft, players drafted in the first round receive guaranteed contracts.
If less than 14 of Yahoo’s top 100 are available in the draft, then no guaranteed contracts are awarded.
There is a maximum of 6 total guaranteed rounds for the league at one time (so you will always have the opportunity to have four keepers not drafted with guaranteed contracts – assuming you have not traded for more players with guaranteed contracts)
A player with a guaranteed contract may not be released except during the final season of the guaranteed contract (in the regular season). A player with a guaranteed contract may not be released earlier than that and if somehow released may not be picked up by any other team.
If players with guaranteed contacts are released, all players picked up by the owner from the time the player was dropped will be released to waivers. These players can be traded, but the contract is still guaranteed for the next team
When can a guaranteed contract end early?
-- when a player officially retires
-- when a player dies
-- when a player is not present in Yahoo when keepers are selected
In case of retirement or a player not being present in Yahoo, the owner needs to let the commissioner know.
A players four year clock resets when he is a) drafted or b) released and picked up by another team
The waiver order will be reordered to match the opposite of the previous year's standings following each subsequent draft.
Trading of draft picks is not allowed.
Trades may not include any arrangements that go beyond the players exchanged.
The only time offseason trades can happen is after keepers have been submitted. Any such trades must involve the same number of players changing hands and will be voted on by the league.
There is a 2 day trade waiting period for all trades. The Commissioner will not speed up any trade approvals. Trades will not be rejected unless there is collusion or wide disagreement by the league.
Intentional losing is not permitted. A team must maintain a viable roster and must make a reasonable effort to activate the best players possible. Commissioner can impose penalties for this behavior that may include loss of keepers and potential removal from the league following the season.
Draft Lottery: A draft lottery will be held to determine draft order. The lottery will determine only the first 3 spots in the draft. All other spots will be in reverse order of previous years standings. Teams 4-8 will get one ball, Teams 9-10 will get two balls, Teams 11-14 will get three balls. Teams 1-3 will not participate in the lottery and will pick in slots 12-14.
Franchise Player (beginning in 2013 season): Each team may designate one player with an expiring contract as its franchise player. That franchise player designation is made before Week 9 and the player must have been kept by the team entering the season in which it is declared a franchise player. The franchise player becomes the face of your franchise and receives a four year guaranteed contract beginning the next season. All rules for guaranteed contracts are valid for franchise players except that the franchise player may not be traded. A team may not have more than one franchise player and may not declare a franchise player unless there is no franchise player on the team or the current franchise player is in his final year. A team does not have to declare a franchise player and can choose not to or decide to declare one in a future year. The franchise player is included among the 10 keepers and does not give a team an additional keeper
