FF League payout structures

20 posts in this topic

Looking for other ideas on ways to structure payout for a league of mine next year. I have my ideas, but was curious to see how others did it. Not really a high dollar league, so I can't spread the wealth much.

What do you guys ise?

Thanks in advance.

10 team league, $30 entry fee, we give payouts for Regular season and Playoffs.

Too many times, and this season was no exception, the Regular season "winner" didn't even make the Championship round so we wanted to reward them for a great season.

Payouts based on rankings for Playoffs:

1st Place - $60

2nd Place - $40

3rd Place - $30

Playoff pay-outs:

Champion - $100

2nd Place - $40

3rd Place - $30

Also, as an incentive to get all teams to Play hard to the end, next years draft is based on the Total points scored in the "Toilet Bowl" bracket.

The team that scores the most points in the :toilet: bowl gets the first pick next year, the 2nd highest gets pick #2, etc..

I like leagues that value total points more than H2H results. My leagues are more like the following:

Superbowl Champ: 20%

SuperBowl Loser: 5%

Other playoff Losers: 5%

Season High Points: 20%

Weekly High Points: 50%

Giving out cash each week for high points keeps people interested all year, but may be tough to do in a small dollar league.

10 team PPR redraft league since 1995.

Football Site: http://www.rtsports.com/

$200 Entry fee

$100 End of regular season #1 seed for playoffs (13 weeks)

$120 NFL Picks (week 1 - 17)

$200 End of Season Highest Total Points (including week 17)

$40 Weekly highest total point winner

$700 Champion

$200 Runner-up

We use H2H points based scoring.

Championship is a combine points for Weeks 16 and 17.

FA Pickups stop in Week 13 but we have WW adds prior to Week 14 games with as many players needed for the WW so you need to think about your final roster for your playoff team since no pickups during the playoffs.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

2nd Work Money League 8 team 0.05/reception PPR which is H2H total points(hoping to expand to 10 managers next season as this was a short notice league)

Football Site: http://www.rtsports.com/

$50 Entry fee

$50 for both Regular Season Divisional Winners.

$200 Champion

$100 Bridesmaid

We figure that we reward the RS Division Winners for getting the Byes since they could be knocked out when they play in the semi-finals but we use Week 16 for Championship Game.

Also, have no pickups during the playoffs.

In my big money league (I know you said this wasn't one, but I figured I'd throw it out there anyway) we do the following:

14 teams. Owner dues: $100; $0.50 per add/drop; $1 per player/trade. Total pot after website fee and other prizes: $1,145

1st: 45% ($515)

2nd: 25% ($286)

3rd: 13% ($148)

4th: 9% ($103)

5th: 5% ($57)

6th: 3% ($34)

The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams evenly split the transaction costs, making the 3rd/4th game worth an extra $100 or so.

We also give out prizes for the winner of the consolation bowl ($40) and have a week 17 free-for-all where you get to pick any players to fill out expanded rosters ($40 for first, $25 for second). It makes week 17 fun while not having a championship on the line.

The payouts still need some work as the 5th/6th place has little consequence other than bragging rights. Maybe we drop the 6th prize altogether and add it to the winner. But we wanted the 4th place to get their money back because that could easily be the best regular season team with a bye week that ran into a buzzsaw in weeks 15 and 16 (which happened this year).

Anyway, people like it.

What do you guys ise?

Thanks in advance.

I've been in as many as five money leagues and I think there are two best practices you should strive for:

[*]League Champ takes home at least 50-60% of the total prize money

[*]3rd Place should recoup their entry fee

There are infinite number of possibilities beyond that concerning transaction costs or keeping owners interested by giving out weekly bonus money or having a toilet bowl tourney, et al. Do whatever you think makes it fun. At the end of the day, the most important criteria are how much the champ wins and how many teams make their money back. The former is personal preference, the latter can't be more than 3 or 4, else you eat into the winners incentive.

2 of the 3 I do are very spread money based on week to week performance, 1 is a $265 buy in, blind bidding waivers through thursday, minimum of $2 bid, and after thursday $3 waiver. Payout weekly of $16 per win, $12 for high score, $6 for 2nd high score, $5 for each positional high player (QB, RB, WR, TE, K, Def) Playoff wins weeks 15,16 ($20 each) Super bowl winner $50......waiver pool starts at 170 and added to through waivers obviously spread for highs of the year of 1st and 2nd high scores of the year (15 and 10 percent I believe) High single week by each position (10 percent each) and overall points champ 15%. So lots of incentive all the way through and you really know who has had a great year without it coming all down to winning the title. Also $25 and $10 bonuses for first and 2nd best records during the regular season. Waiver pool generally winds up around $300, I think this year it's actually closer to $400

So in this league, its possible that I buy in for $265, win the whole thing and walk away with $70 (SB and 1st week playoff win) plus $16 per win in the regular season (meaning that to recoup my buy in I need to win 12+ games?) That's different.

10 Teamer league (100 entry per team except commish who pays 75 - recommended by league mates for management of league)

2 divisions of 5 teams and two division winners get 1st round bye (top 6 make the big dance)

400 to SB Champ

200 to SB runner up

100 to 3rd place in playoffs

25 to Toilet bowl winner

10 per week to high point team of the week (through week 16)

90 - Total points race through week 16

This keeps all teams fighting through week 16 for the weekly prizes. Usually the point race is a two horse race. 3rd place took the title this year.

Another 10 teamer I am in does the following:

100 per team and Top 6 make superbowl playoffs, bottom 4 toilet bowl

500 to Superbowl winner

300 to superbowl loser

100 to each division winner

4 Toilet bowl bowl teams have a two week total point race in weeks 14 and 15. Top two teams get 25 each from the bottom two teams towards next years dues.

I was a league this year that had 14 teams, wouldn't you know I won the H2H Regular Season, and the Playoff Championship, and finished third in total points. The only problem is that our league paid only the six highest teams in total points, and the four highest teams in the playoffs. Our commish said that we should only value total points, that winning the league is luck,and does not necessarily reward the best team. I believe that we should at least reward the top two teams of the regular season, and three or four for total points. I do like the idea of rewarding a team total points for a week, but not for the season. I also failed to say that the biggest winner was the total point winner. What would you due if you were me?
