  1. It's time for our 3rd season running an NFL Against the Spread Pick 'Em Contest! We had a total of 59 participants last season and are looking to expand as much as possible. The more the merrier! HOST WEBSITE: CBS FUNDS KEPT VIA: LeagueSafe COST: $10 PER WEEK paid via LeagueSafe PAYOUTS: TO BE DETERMINED BASED ON # OF PARTICIPANTS. However, here is last season's payouts with 58 participants. Weekly Winners: 1st: $170 2nd: $85 End of Season Winners 1st: $1950 2nd: $1450 3rd: $1000 4th: $700 5th: $425 RULES & REGULATIONS: 1. ALL picks must be made and lock FIVE minutes before game-time of each game. You may pick all games and then change your mind up until 5 minutes prior to the game's start time. 2. Spreads WILL be RELEASED on CBS every TUESDAY MORNING. 3. The weekly winner will be the one with the most correct picks for the week. If a tie persists, the winner will be the one who is closest to predicting the MNF total score. 4. If a tie persists between players at the end of the season for a top prize, there will be no tiebreaker. Both your hard work will be rewarded in a split prize or prizes depending on the number of players tied. 5. ALL money will be handled through a third party LeagueSafe that will keep your money safe, and ensure payouts. This also means ALL payouts will be awarded at the end of the season, at the conclusion of Week 17. Last season I set payouts Sunday night of week 17 and will look to do the same this year to ensure fast payouts. IF you are interested, please direct message me, shoot me a text at 818 . 397-3496 , or email me at teddyb52214 @ g mail dot com
  2. Hello everyone. As it stands, I am commissioner of over 10 dynasty fantasy football leagues via Fantrax and GroupMe. GroupMe is a requirement to join. Due to consistent demand from current members I have across my leagues, I am doing a second startup. It will both $100 per season and of the SuperFlex variety. Keep in mind we always stay one year ahead for payments to prevent league turnover. So year 1 cost will be $200, and $100 each season thereafter. Payments are handled via LeagueSafe. WE ARE LOOKING ONLY for active players who will keep active even during the offseason and not go ghost on GroupMe. We all look to have fun year in and year out and it hurts the league to see inactive players or people who leave after one or two seasons. If you are interested, please feel free to email me at harut728@yahoo.com or text me at 818-397-3496. Note: Text is much more preferred. Feel free to pose any questions you may have. I have enlisted our league format and rules below for your reading. Please make sure you can abide by them prior to joining. League scoring is standard PPR format, with 1.5 PPR for the TE position. Starting positions: QB WR WR WR RB RB TE FLEX SUPERFLEX RULES AND REGULATIONS Roster Size: There will be 30 roster slots. Due to the large number, there will be no IR slots. Roster size is always subject to change, pending league majority approval. To keep our dynasty free agency a little exciting, I will be hesitant to further increase roster size. Rookie Draft: The Rookie Draft WILL include veteran free agents and incoming rookies. Free agency will be frozen at the conclusion of the regular season until the conclusion of the rookie draft, which then players will go on waivers. The rookie draft will be 5 rounds every season. Draft Pick Trading: Trading of draft picks is allowed for the current AND following year's picks. Once the offseason has begun, in order to trade the following year's picks, you must make payment for that year as well, which is due regardless prior to the rookie draft date. League Dues: We will ALWAYS be paying one year up front. You have from the end of the season up until the rookie draft date to make payment. Those who neglect to make the payment will be replaced. Due Date for payment will be two weeks prior to our rookie draft. Rookie Draft Order: The Rookie Draft Order will be determined, barring any penalization, by lowest total points scored for the 6 teams that miss out on the playoffs. For the 6 that make it to the playoffs, their slots will be determined by a combination of elimination and lowest points scored. For example, the first two eliminations in round 1 of the playoffs will get the #7 and #8 pick of the rookie draft, with the team scoring the least points in the season, getting #7. Playoff Format: Top 6 Records will make the postseason, which begins Week 14 and lasts through Week 16. Top 2 seeds will get a BYE week. Points scored serves as any tiebreaker. If a second tiebreaker is needed, it will come down to head-to-head record. If a third tiebreaker is needed, Standing Tiebreakers: If two or more teams have the same record, the first tiebreaker will be most point scored in the season. The second tiebreaker will be head-to-head record. The third tiebreaker will be the higher strength of schedule will get the better position. The fourth tiebreaker will be a live coin toss done by yours truly! Matchup Tiebreakers: If a regular season matchup score is tied. Each team will indeed receive a tie. However, in the playoffs, if a matchup is miraculously tied, the tiebreaking system will be the exact same as the standings tiebreaker method stated in Rule #6. Free Agency: Free agency is FAAB format. Each team is awarded $100 every season. Minimum bid is $1. Trade Deadline: Trade deadline will be the Saturday of Week 13. Trading will re-open once Fantrax re-opens the following season, which doesn't take more than a week after the superbowl. You may not trade the following year's draft choices until you have paid the fee for the season. Payouts: 1st place: $750 2nd place: $350 3rd Place: $100 TANKING RULE: There will be no tanking. Setting lineups weekly is MANDATORY. Failure to set your lineup for two consecutive weeks (Starting injured players, players on bye, obvious backups, etc.) will result in removal of league and commissioner will set lineup for the rest of the season. Final Words: This will always be a democracy, but keep in mind, I will take matters into my own hands if need be. I hope I have proven myself to everyone by now that I always act in the best interest of the league. I want to wish everyone good luck each and every season and hope you have a great time in my leagues. As always, I encourage activity on our GroupMe. I would like to see people check in throughout the season and even in the offseason from time to time. It's never too early (or late) to improve your team! Feel free to always announce players you are shopping, suggestions, or practically anything on there. The commissioner reserves the right to make changes to these rules, but only during the offseason and after discussion with league members.
  3. First things first, a little about my leagues and myself. I currently run 10 dynasty football leagues, with league styles varying a bit. I will be running a 11th league with increased stakes at $100 per season. My leagues require you to be active, have groupme and be active on there, are run on Fantrax, and have thick skin if need be. My leagues are extremely active, especially when it comes to trading. I have developed a solid group of guys and gals in each one of my leagues. Some who have already signed up for the new superflex league, therefore, be ready for a competitive and fiery league. I am only looking for dedicated guys and gals who know their football who will only add to the competition. Trading is also allowed and encouraged during the dynasty start up draft. It will be a SLOW DRAFT, BUT we require people to always be alert and set up a queue, announce trade desires in advance to keep things moving. We DO NOT want to be drafting for a month. Starting positions and scoring will be as follows. QB / RB / RB / WR / WR / WR / TE/ 1 FLEX (RB/WR/TE) 1 SUPERFLEX (QB/RB/WR/TE) / K / DST General Scoring: Reception: 1 Point (1.5 for TEs) Rushing/Receiving Yards: 0.1 points per rushing/receiving yard Passing Yards: 0.04 points per passing yard Passing Touchdown: 4 points Rushing/Receiving Touchdown: 6 points Interception: -1 Points Fumbles Lost: -2 Points DST: General scoring method RULES AND REGULATIONS Roster Size: There will be 34 roster slots to begin. Due to the large number, there will be no IR slots. Roster size is always subject to change, usually pending league majority approval. Draft Type: Draft Style will be Snake draft, with a 3rd round reversal as this is the fairest way so that everyone's pick is as equal as can be. It will be a SLOW draft through Fantrax, with trading of picks allowed during the draft. However, we DO NOT want people slowing up the draft to garner trade interest. That won't be tolerated. Rookie Draft Time: The Rookie Draft will take place generally a couple weeks to up to 2 months after the real life NFL Draft. This simply depends on where the league you are in falls in the pecking order. I run multiple dynasty leagues, so I have to schedule accordingly, but will look to get them done as soon as possible. League Dues: We will ALWAYS be paying one year up front. You have from the end of the season up until the rookie draft date to make payment. Those who neglect to make the payment will be replaced. Due Date for payment will be one week prior to our rookie draft. Rookie Draft Order: The Rookie Draft Order will be determined, barring any penalization, by lowest total points scored for the 6 teams that miss out on the playoffs. For the 6 that make it to the playoffs, their slots will be determined by a combination of elimination and lowest points scored. For example, the first two eliminations in round 1 of the playoffs will get the #7 and #8 pick of the rookie draft, with the team scoring the least points in the season, getting #7. Playoff Format: Top 6 Records will make the postseason, which begins Week 14 and lasts through Week 16. Top 2 seeds will get a BYE week. Points scored serves as any tiebreaker. If a second tiebreaker is needed, it will come down to head-to-head record. If a third tiebreaker is needed, Standing Tiebreakers: If two or more teams have the same record, the first tiebreaker will be most point scored in the season. The second tiebreaker will be head-to-head record. The third tiebreaker will be the higher strength of schedule will get the better position. The fourth tiebreaker will be a live coin toss done by yours truly! Matchup Tiebreakers: If a regular season matchup score is tied. Each team will indeed receive a tie. However, in the playoffs, if a matchup is miraculously tied, the tiebreaking system will be the exact same as the standings tiebreaker method stated in Rule #6. Free Agency: Free agency is a waiver wire rolling system. Free agency will be frozen at the end of Week 16 up until the end of our Rookie Draft. At the end of the rookie draft, all players undrafted will go on waivers. Trade Deadline: Trade deadline will be 11:59 PM EST on the Thursday of prior to Week 12. Trading will re-open once Fantrax re-opens the following season, which doesn't take more than a few weeks after the superbowl. You may not trade the following year's draft choices until you have paid the fee for the season. Example: Once the 2018 season has concluded. 2019 picks can be dealt at your leisure, but 2019 picks won't be allowed to be dealt until you have paid the league fee for the new season, which is due regardless one week before the rookie draft. PLEASE be vigilant in the trades you make. This is your team for many years to come. Vetoing: Intentional vetoing is not allowed. It is each owner's responsibility to review trades when they have been accepted. A trade would have to be extremely lopsided to warrant 6 vetoes from 10 allowed voters. Payouts: 1st place: $800 2nd place: $300 3rd Place: $100 (Subject to change) TANKING RULE: There will be no tanking. Setting lineups weekly is MANDATORY. If you are unable to take five minutes a week and set the best possible lineup, then this league isn't for you. Failing to set your lineup or weaseling around and trying to start lesser players will result in a lower draft pick as penalty and/or eventual removal from the league. See Rule #5 for further clarification. SETTING YOUR LINEUP WEEKLY: There are those that will try to get smart and claim "Player A" was a logical/better start than "Player B" when it obviously was not. To protect the league from this, if a situation like this arises, there will be no arguing. I will simply leave it up to the league via a majority rules poll to decide if you should get a strike or not. I have listed a few examples of what won't be tolerated below. Players on a bye week CAN NOT be in your starting lineup for any reason throughout the season. Players that have a status of "OUT" , "DOUBTFUL" , "INJURED RESERVE" CAN NOT be in your starting lineup for any reason throughout the season. I do understand there are sometimes situation that you may need to roll the dice with a questionable player, especially when that player has a late start. Generally, reports come out on the status of most players, but there are a couple instances each year where it does come down to the wire, or there is a surprise inactive. That will all be taken into conisderation, especially given the fact that most people are generally very busy on Sundays. I don't want to make this league your life, I just want to keep a fair and balanced playing field. Strike One: Your draft slot will be lowered by 1 spot. Strike Two: Your draft slot will be lowered by 2 spots. Strike Three: You will be removed from the league. Due to the fact that even one strike offers harsh punishment, strikes will reset at the end of each season. It is YOUR responsibility to make sure you never get on this list. I am a reasonable comissioner, if a situation arises, once again, please do not hesitate to contact me. Final Words: This will always be a democracy, but keep in mind, I will take matters into my own hands if need be. I hope I have proven myself to everyone by now that I always act in the best interest of the league. I want to wish everyone good luck each and every season and hope you have a great time in my leagues. As always, I encourage activity on our GroupMe.
