Dynasty League Questions (1 Viewer)

A few of us are looking to start a new Dynasty League next season and I have some questions.

With Dynasty, do you use and auction and if so, what is the cap?

In regards to trades for draft picks, what is the easiest way to keep track of this?

Do you use contracts or is the player yours for as long as you want him?

Would anyone of you be willing to send me a copy of your league rules?

Thanks,

HH

You can do either an auction or a draft, contracts or no contracts. My dynasty league uses My Fantasy League for the software, which has the option for draft picks, so the software tracks it. Send me a PM with your email address and I'll send you a copy of our rules.
 
I love dynasty/auction. The biggest benefit is that it cuts down on complaints about bad trades because of differences in salary. we also use MFL.

 
We had a draft and assigned contracts to each player with a team contract cap of 60 years.

Although it is not technically a dynasty league (actually a contract league), owners have really grown to enjoy the league.

One thing I have noticed in our contract league is the parity. Teams that have a bad year one year are able to turn it around quickly with a few quality rookie picks and free agency moves/trades.

Dynasty leagues where you keep players for as long as you want to may tend to become dominated by a few stacked teams, resulting in high owner turnover.

This is why you may want to be careful of the initial owner selection for your league. Some owners may jump ship after one season if they run their franchise into the ground. I have been running our league for 12 years with minimum owner turnover because most of us have been friends since high school and they are able to turnaround their team fairly easily.

Hope some of this helps.

Agree with JRod about the parity, our league has a 45 year cap and teams have been able to bounce back quickly after a bad year. We have lost 2 of the original owners, mainly we let them go b/c they just weren't active enough. Shoot me a PM if you want to review our rules.
