The Rules of the Beginner’s Fantasy Football League
We’re playing standard FFL rules with .5 point per reception (PPR) scoring. There is no weird fine print. In order to keep the guys whose drafts get blown up with week two injuries interested and making their lineups, the waiver wire will be done the way the NFL does it. If you are in last place, you have top waiver priority. If you are winning the league, you are last in waiver priority.
The draft date will be determined shortly and announced on the podcast and on the website. This is true for every league. If you can not make that draft date and are not willing to set up a big board for an auto draft, be aware that your draft may have unanticipated results. Ash Thompson will be the commissioner for every league, he is generally a fairly hands-off guy unless someone complains about an obvious attempt to game the system. The difference between a bad trade and an illegal trade is whether or not the members of the league see fit to complain, and whether or not he agrees with them after consulting the players involved.
Play fair gentlefolk. The only rule is “don’t cheat” and if it’s broken, the offender(s) will be kicked out of the league without a refund and Ash will finish the season for the teams involved to the best of his ability.
The winner’s payout for each finishing position is as follows:
1st place: $40
2nd place: $30
3rd place: $15
Each league will have 12 teams – no inter-league competition will take place unless we decide to throw an extra overall prize into the mix, but that won’t change any part of the individual league rules or play.
