CXF Fantasy Football '19
« on: May 11, 2019, 03:56:32 PM »


It's a little past May 1st when I planned on starting the thread but oh well. Been busy with work and that's where I prefer to do most of my fantasy commish bidness at. I basically went over and completely rewrote the league rules to reflect the league format changes. I added in a few things that had been stated in the thread the past two years but never actually made it into the rules.

One thing that has been added that wasn't discussed is that Round 9, the final round of the draft will be a Lightning Round. The last round is typically tedious and people tend to not care so it will basically be a first come first serve and last between 24 & 36 hours. Just post who you want and they are yours as long as someone else hasn't taken them. If you don't make a selection by the end of the Round 9 Lightning Round, then you will just have an extra body to fill during the FAAB Benchwarmer Auction. Not a big deal really.

If Edwin hasn't resurfaced by July 7th then I'll just find a replacement for him. If anyone is interested in joining let me know before that date.

Normally I have the rules spoilered out, but since I redid them I'll just leave them in a

Commish Reminders:
*Increase initial waiver time to 2 or 3 days for FAAB benchwarmer auction, then decrease time afterward.
*Explore options for when free agents are added day of game time

Draft begins July 21st.
12 Hour Time Limits

Quote from: League Rules
CXF Fantasy Football Keeper League Rules

A. Teams can select a maximum of SIX keepers of any position.

B. Teams can choose to keep less than SIX keepers.

C. If keeping less than the SIX keeper maximum, a manager will receive a compensatory pick for each spot left open.

D. All keepers must be turned in by the end of the NFL Draft's last pick. For 2019, that was April 27th, 2019.

E. If no keepers have been turned in by the keeper deadline, the commish will appoint keepers for that team. The team will be considered open/available for a different manager to take over at that point as well.

F. After the keeper deadline, any unkept players on your roster are immediately considered free agents eligible for the upcoming draft. They are no longer considered on your roster.

G. There is not a duration limit that a player can be kept for. Players may be kept as many consecutive seasons as you would like.

H. Draft picks can be traded at any point during the season, off-season, and during the draft. The only exemption is during the in-season trading deadline period. In this league, the amount of draft picks DO NOT have to balance on each side of the trade. If the trade occurrs DURING the fantasy regular season, at least 1 player must be included on each side of the draft to complete the transaction.

(Example: Team A trades Matt Stafford and a 13th and 14th Round Draft Pick to Team B for Matt Forte and a 1st Draft Pick. This is a legal trade.)

I. After the Fantasy Championship matchup has ended, the in-season trade deadline period will be lifted. Trading can again commence. Managers must post in the Fantasy Football thread any trade and both managers involved in the trade must confirm the trade is true before it is validated.

J. Draft Format. The draft will be 9 rounds, plus a compensatory round. Draft rounds are serpentine. The compensatory round will take place following Round 1. Compensatory picks are slotted based on the end of regular season standings per number of picks in the round. All first compensatory picks are slotted prior to the second compensatory picks, and so on. Any compensatory picks awarded because of an injury, retirement, or suspension exemption are slotted first come first serve at the end of all previously placed compensatory picks. The final round of the draft, Round 9, will be a lightning round this year. The lightning round will be a first come first serve round that lasts approximately 24 to 36 hours. If a pick has not been completed by the end of that round, the manager will have to complete it through the FAAB Benchwarmer Auction.

K. During the draft, a manager has 12 hours to complete a draft pick. The time starts immediately following the previous selection OR the previous manager hitting their time limit. This is subject to change if we are starting to run behind on time to complete the draft. The clock DOES start immediately following an invalid selection by a manager.

The Roy Ammendment:
In the event that a manager goes missing during the draft the following will happen. After they have had a pick skipped by 25 spots, they will be considered missing. They will then at that time have the best offensive players autodrafted for them for all of their pending picks regardless of any of their specific team needs. They are just getting the best available based on the yahoo rankings. They will be considered missing until they post in the thread that they are indeed back amongst the living. If any current picks for a missing manager do come up when they haven't returned, they will be auto skipped and given the best available offensive player by the commish. If you aren't going to be around, let the commish or someone know. We haven't encountered this issue since Roy is no longer in the league. In the event a situation does arise again, this is exactly how it will be handled.

L. If you draft a player without stats for the prior regular season during the draft that is a Rookie BEFORE the Yahoo! player pool is posted, and he is not in the player pool by the END of the draft, you lose that player as a draft pick and any rights to that player AND will be forced to select someone from the remaining undrafted players ONCE the draft is completed.

M. FAAB Benchwarmer Auction. After the draft is complete we'll fill out the remainder of your 20 man rosters through a Free Agent Acquisition Budget Waiver. We'll call this the Benchwarmer Auction. The Benchwarmer Auction will take place on yahoo, just the same as we do each week during the regular season for the FAAB waiver process of free agents. Each team will get $100, plus any potential bonuses, to spend on filling up the remainder of their roster. Any unused cash from the Benchwarmer Auction will not roll over to the regular season. So don't be cheap.

N. FAAB Bonuses. Below is a list of potential bonuses in FAAB cash that can be attained.

*Draft Pick Punctuality Bonus: If you have zero time limit delays during the draft you will receive a $20 regular season FAAB bonus. If you have one time limit delay during the draft you will receive a $10 regular season FAAB bonus. If you have two or more time limit delays you will not be eligible for this bonus.

*Benchwarmer Bonus: If by, date designated by the commish, you have filled your roster with 20 or more players, then you will receive an extra $50 in your regular season FAAB bank account.

*Startling Lineup Bonus: If by, date designated by the commish, you have every position of your lineup filled with a player, you will receive a $25 bonus into your regular season FAAB bank account. If any spot is left empty, offense/kicker/defense, than you will not receive the bonus.

*Rivalry Week: One week during the season will be designated a rivalry week. If you defeat your opponent during rivalry week you will take $20 from their regular season FAAB account. If the loser doesn't have the cash, the loser will be docked the following season. The winner will get their reward now though.

O. New managers taking over an existing team will assume all commitments and prior obligations that the previous manager had.

P. Playoffs. Championship bracket will consist of regular season standings teams One thru Eight. The only exception is that division winners are guaranteed a championship playoff berth. Regardless of how terrible a division might end up being, its winner will represent it in the championship bracket. Consolation bracket will consist of teams Nine thru Sixteen, minus any potential division winners.

Q. The winner of the Consolation playoff bracket will be awarded the prize of #1 Overall Draft pick. This prize is an additional draft pick. You will have the first overall pick PLUS your regularly slotted draft pick based on end of regular season standings.

R. Divisions. There are four divisions and four teams per division. Divisions for the followimg year are determined based on a team's total points scored for the previous regular season. Top four point scoring teams are given a designation of #1 and placed at the top of each division. The next four are given the designation of #2 and placed in each of the four divisions, and so on.

S. Schedules. The schedules are custom made by the commish to optimize and emphasize our division format. Schedules follow a similar format each year. You will face everyone in your division twice, you will face everyone in a select division once, you will face the two teams with the same preseason divisional placement seeding number you haven't yet faced once, and finally you will face a rivalry week opponent. Rivalry week oppoment will be a team that is not in your division. Teams can make a request for a specific rivalry week opponent in the thread. This adds up to a 13 week regular season. This is the baseline for the schedule every season. The only variance is the weeks of occurance. Weeks with no bye week NFL teams are typically going to be reserved for divisional matchups.

T. These rules are subject to review and revision after the season is over and prior to the start of drafting at the discretion of the league and the commissioner.

2019 Draft Pick Trade:
TRADE #1: (IN-SEASON)
To Flik: QB Ryan Tannehill, WR Antonio Calloway, WR Keelan Cole, WR David Moore, 2019 4th Round Pick, 2019 8th Round Pick

TRADE #2: (After Keeper Deadline)
Kotz receives QB Matt Stafford, WR Cooper Kupp, Harley's 2019 Round 2 & Round 7 picks

*A $50 FAAB penalty was placed on both teams for trading an unkept player, Mike Williams, after the trade deadline. Trade happened between 24 & 48 hours after the deadline.

FAAB Debts for 2019:
Flik owes $20
Kotz & Harley owe $50 on each budget, Benchwarmer & In-Season, for penalty of trading unkept player after the keeper deadline.

I just reactivated my own Home League today and it feels so good.

#1 pick is up for trade, folks. Looking to get some 2nd-4th rounders. There may be no slam dunk Saquon Barkley this year (because why would there be the year I win the #1 pick) but if you're QB-starved or someone has made a blunder in their keepers then you can capitalize!

Are trades at this point for draft picks *only*, or can kept players be involved as well? I may have a thing but don't know how legal it is since I would have to drop a current keeper for it as well to remain at six.

Keepers locked on the deadline, April 27th. That basically means the dudes you picked from your end of season roster are yours at that point. Anyone unkept at that point is a free agent and not yours any longer. That's essentially the start of your roster for the new season when the deadline happens.

After the deadline, which is now, you basically can trade any combination of those kept players and picks. That's your roster for next season. The sides of the trade don't have to balance out. You could end up with 4 extra picks, a team could have 4 extra players. It doesn't matter.

The keeper deadline essentially is when the draft grid gets created and the start of your new roster happens. If you kept less than the keepers at that moment of the deadline, you got picks in the comp round. If you trade players you listed as keepers away after that, you aren't getting comp round picks. Thats not how that works.

So there's no reason you should have to drop a player you listed as a keeper. If you end up with 8 players on your team after your trade, that's legal.

The keeper max of 6 is for the deadline. Otherwise we would be stuck in a no trading hell for no reason.

Basically don't look at any of the dudes you have at this point as keepers, look at them more as players on your 2019 roster.
