We need two new owners in UFDL Devy / Dynasty League.  It's a PPR league with 26 man rosters and here is the link to the league.https://www61.myfantasyleague.com/2021/home/33706#0

The league fees are $55.85, which includes MFL hosting site fees.  Payment methods can be PayPal or check.  Fees must be paid prior to the dispersal draft.    I commish fantasy Legends 1 and 2, in addition to this league.  All 3 leagues are long standing leagues.  We're looking for owners who are dedicated to the Devy and Dynasty format, with the intention of being in the league long term.  If interested post in this thread and send me your email address.  That can be in a PM if you don't wish to list it public.

This is a Devy league where college players are rostered.  Please see the rules below concerning this.

Here is a list of the players and picks that will  be available in a 26 round draft, but we can go more rounds because of the picks.  You can only have 26 actual players however.  A "*" denotes a devy / college player.

League Constitution

Teams and Setup

The league will be made up of three divisions of 4 teams each.  Owners will participate in a 14 week regular season.  Play all 3 teams in our division two times and 8 teams outside your division exactly once, with a playoff involving six (6) teams.  Three division winners seeded #1 and #2 and #3 and 3 wildcard teams seeded #4 thru #6.  The two division winners with the best records will receive byes the first week of the playoffs.  Week 16 will have the #1 seed playing the lowest remaining seed (example #6 seed is the lowest seed) and the #2 seed will play the remaining team. The Championship game is played in week 17.  

Divisions will change yearly, in order to try and keep even competition equal among divisions.  Based on the following seasons win/loss record, the divisions will be realigned.  Top record will go to Division 1, 2nd best will go to Division 2, 3rd best will go to Division 3, 4th best will go to Division 1, and that process continues until all teams have been assigned a new division.  In the event of equal records, total points scored will be used as the tiebreaker. 

Should an Owner leave the league for any reason, a capable replacement will be found.  

Initial Draft

There will be a 24 round initial draft.  The draft will be a 3rd round reversal.  Simply put, this is exactly like a regular serpentine draft except round 3 is reversed.  So the team with the last pick in the 1st round would have the 1st pick in every even round as in a normal serpentine, as well as having the 1st pick in the 3rd round.  All other odd number rounds would revert back to them having the last pick in the round. 

Draft position will be chosen by owners, based on a random order generator.  The random order generator will give an order of owners, and owners will choose their draft slots in that order. 

Draft picks can be traded before and during the initial draft, as well 2011 rookie draft picks. 

All current NFL players, including NFL rookies, as well as all current college players are eligible to be drafted.

College Players

A maximum of 12 college players can be on rosters at any point in time.  There is a maximum of 4 players allowed per team.  Teams can continue to choose college players up until the 12th player is off the board, at which point no more players may be chosen.  To be considered a college player, a player must be on a college roster or have signed their letter of intent to intend a college (ie no high school prospects can be chosen until their letter of intent has been signed).  Once a player is drafted onto an NFL team, he loses his status as a college player and becomes an NFL rookie.  These players are eligible to be traded the same as any other player.   If a development prospect is released by a team, that player is ineligible to be picked up by another.  They will instead be available to be drafted as either a regular rookie or devy in the following rookie draft, whichever they are eligible for.

Rookie Draft

The rookie draft will be 4 rounds, held annually in May.  The draft order for the first 6 picks will be in order of worst record to best among non-playoff teams. For picks 7-12, the order will slotted based on playoff finish, with the league champion receiving the 12th pick.   In the event of a tie in record, total points scored will be used at the tiebreaker, with less points scored meaning the earlier pick. Both rookies and college players are eligible to be drafted.  If for example there are currently 7 college players rostered, an additional 5 will be able to be rostered during that rookie draft.  All rookie draft picks can be traded.  A pick is considered a future pick if there is still a rookie draft in between now and when that pick is.  For example, a 2011 draft pick is considered a future pick up until the conclusion of the 2010 draft, when it then becomes simply that years pick.  Picks can only be traded 1 year in advance. 

There will be a 24 hour timer for draft picks to be made.  If you do not make your pick within your 24 hours, the next team will be on the clock.  At that point the team who has missed their pick can come in at any time and make their missed selection. 

Supplemental Draft

The supplemental draft will be setup in a thread with bids made publicly in an auction style format open for approx. two days. Bids for a player can be made using the team's following season's draft picks still owned (any picks acquired/lost through trade are not eligible to be bid). Highest bid gets the player and loses the pick that was bid. Value of the following season's picks will be based on the order of draft from the most recent rookie draft.  

Rosters

Rosters will be a minimum of 14 players, and a maximum of 26 players.  

A player is eligible only at the position listed on the league site.

The starting lineup will consist of the following

1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 DEF, 1 FLEX (RB, WR, TE)

Players on a bye will not be allowed in starting lineups.  

If a player is not in the MFL player database but was signed by an NFL team and you wish to pick him up, post a message on the league site stating you wish the commish to add a proxy player of the same name.  You can then put a bid in for that player if we're in BB mode or you will get that player immediately if we're in first-come-first-serve mode.

Starting Linups

No starting an invalid lineup (players on a bye, or players that are inactive).  The commish will try and insert a player on your bench if possible.  This is a league integrity issue that can give teams an advantage in playoff seeding or draft positioning.

Waivers

In-season

Teams will have $1000 of blind bid dollars to use throughout the season. Bids must be made in increments of $1.  After the blind bid process for the week is concluded, regular first come first serve waivers will be in place at no charge of blind bid dollars.  Waivers will process in-season on Wednesday night at 9:00 pm ET.  Only close the WW (adds) for player's whos game has started or played.  Leave open add/drops for all other players until Monday night game starts.  You cannot pickup a player who's game has already played, even if that player was signed after his team has played and before the waiver process.  That player must go to the waiver process.  Blind  bidding dollars do not carry over to the next year.  If a player is dropped they must clear the next waiver run before becoming a free agent.

Off-season

We will run one last waivers after week 18 and then FCFS starts for the off-season.

Off-season after our rookie draft

After our rookie draft I will set up the calendar event to have blind bid waivers each week, starting on Monday at 12:00 am ET and ending on Wednesday at 9:00 pm ET.  If a player is dropped he must clear the next waiver run before becoming a free agent.

Manipulation of a player's availability:  Adding and dropping a player in order to tie up or lock their status is not allowed. 

Injured Reserve

We will allow teams to start using IR with the first preseason game and when MFL allows the use of the IR based upon when the NFL starts using it.  Maximum IR spots is 2, but we allow unlimited IR spots for COVID (designation of C or H).  All teams must activate IR players within one week after MFL rolls over to the next season's website and we do too.   

Scoring

PPR league. 4 pt/TD pass, 6 pt/TD rush or receive.  .75 PPR for RB, 1 PPR for, 1.25 PPR for TE

Any scoring dispute must be made after the current week's games, and before the next week's first game. Changes will only be made if the hosting site allows it. The hosting site decisions on scoring is final unless a mistake has been made in the rules setups, which means that the hosting site setups contradict what is stated in the constitution. If that is the case, then the commissioner will use the constitution to change the hosting site setup if possible. It is the responsibility of each owner to read the constitution and compare it with the hosting site and make any discrepancies known to the league.

We will apply MFL previous week stat changes if they are received by MFL before the start of the next week's games.   They usually get them on Wed or Thurs each week, but they could come much later.  Once a new week's game starts, the previous week's games are official.

Tiebreakers 

A. Order of Tiebreakers, Standings

1.) Total Points Scored
2.) Head-To-Head Record
3.) Divisional Record
4.) Power Rank 
 

B. Tie-Breakers, Game
Designate Bench Player to break ties. If the points scored for the designated bench players still has the game tied, total overall bench points will be used as the secondary tie breaker. 

 Trading

There will be no league voting on each individual trade.  All trades are valid, unless collusion is expected.  In the event of suspected collusion, the trade will be put to a vote by the league.  Excluding the two owners involved in the trade, the other 10 owners will vote on the deal.  If 8 of 10 believe collusion has occurred, the deal will be reversed and both owners given a warning.  More than one such warning will result in removal from the league. 

Trades must result in rosters that comply with the rules.  You may be required to drop a player in order to complete a trade to stay within roster limits.  

Owners have a 30 min window to dispute a trade that was a mistake.  In the event of a trade that you accidentally inputted, contact me immediately.

 The trade deadline will be the kickoff of the first game of Week 15 of the season.  

Rule Changes

Rule changes will be discussed in the offseason.  In order for a rule change to be enacted, it will require 9 out of 12 owners agreeing on the change.  Owners can nominate rule changes to be discussed at any time after the Super Bowl has occured.

Fees

Fees will be $55.85 (50 entry fee + 5.85 mfl fees) for each team, due by May 1st of the upcoming season.

Payouts

$600 total 

6 teams make playoffs @ $25 each = $150

1 points champ = $50

1 Super Bowl Champ = $300

1 Runner-up = $100

150 + 50 + 300 + 100 = 600

Just received a PM from one interested person regarding one of these teams for the dispersal draft.  Not finalized yet.

Edit:  It is final, we have one and need one more.  Then we can do the dispersal draft of the two teams players and picks.

Looks like a great opportunity for a great league and some good available building blocks to start a team.  Would love to jump in a league with you but when I got back into fantasy, I decided for my Sunday morning family time / sanity that I'm only playing best ball.  I'm sure you won't have any trouble filling the other spot pretty quickly.
