How it works ...

You have a fantasy pro football team that you have drafted and will manage. Your team will receive points in different areas each week. Assuming the league has 12 teams, teams will be divided into 3 divisions (If 10 teams, we will only have 2 divisions). Competition will be head-to-head. Tie breaker will be determined by adding total yardage of starting QB, RB, & WR. You will play every team in your division twice and play other teams outside your division once. Schedules will be handed out before the season begins. We will have 3 division winners and 2 wildcard teams advance to the playoffs. Week 16 will be our SuperBowl weekend.

The Draft ...

The season will start with a snake draft and the draft order will be decided before draft day. At draft day every manager must be present in order to choose the players that they will have on their team. There will be 14 rounds (14 picks) in the draft. The manager will have 1-3 minutes to make a pick or lose their turn. Please make up a name for your team and have it on draft day. No pay no play, so bring your money!

Starting Line-up ...

Your weekly line-up must have:

1 Quarterback
2 Running backs
3 Wide Receivers
1 Kicker
1 defensive/special teams

This line-up must be given to the commissioner prior to the first game of that week. If no new line-up is given, then the previous line-up will be used.

Waivers, Trades, & Injuries ...

For the first 7 weeks of the season you can pick any players/teams from the unsigned pool or trade with other teams. These transactions must be submitted to the commissioner and all team managers prior to the first game of that week. Failure will result in forfeiting that weeks pts. Any player listed in Thursdays injury report as "Doubtful" or "Out" is eligible to be dropped from your roster the following week. You may replace the injured player with players from the unsigned pool. Injury replacements may occur up until week 13. The injured player goes back into the pool and may be claimed by another team. Stacking teams is prohibited and determined by a majority vote from the managers.
