Season 2017: Sign up and Draft

Post by Shurijo » Mon Aug 07, 2017 12:44 pm

Ok. Let's try something different this year... Let's try to draft and get started before the first game of the season :D

TL;DR - What's new

* 2 keepers
* 1 DP
* 1 more bench
* 1 IR

I've updated the settings, so this year we'll have:

2 Keepers

* Players from 2016, please set your keepers now
* New players will draft and get 2 extra picks at end of draft (incentivizes team/coach retainment)
* If a 2016 player doesn't want to continue, they may 'trade' their team to a new player (and new player gets to pick keepers), must be done before draft
* Existing players may trade players in order to lock in keepers, trades need to be approved as per usual trade rules

Positions:

Position / Starters:

* Quarterback (QB) 1
* Running Back (RB) 2
* Wide Receiver (WR) 2
* Tight End (TE) 1
* Flex (RB/WR/TE) 1
* Defensive Player Utility (DP) 1
* Team Defense/Special Teams (D/ST) 1
* Place Kicker (K) 1
* Bench (BE) 8
* Injured Reserve (IR) 1

----------------------------------------

Owners, floor is open for debate.

Topics:

* New positions: 1 (more) Bench, 1 IR, 1 DP
* Keepers (2)
* Draft date/format
* Owner/Team trades
* anything else

Definition from ESPN FFL wrote: The system will automatically place the IR (injured reserve) tag on a player once ESPN receives the report from the NFL. NOTE: Only players with the (IR) tag or (O) tag can be placed on IR (injured reserve). All other players must be moved to the bench if you do NOT want them on the active roster.

see: https://support.espn.com/articles/en_US ... y-Football
In my words = IR is a 'bench' position for any player with IR or O tag.

Example: You have 2 QBs, QB1 gets hurt and is on IR, you move QB1 to IR position, and pick up a new QB for a QB3 (maximum position requirements still apply, here you're limited to 4 QB as standard rules still apply). At this point you have 3 QBs (one starting, one on bench, and one in IR). When QB1 comes off IR, then you can drop QB3 and put QB1 back into line up.

Ha!. I was going to say, I don't think you understand Keepers, until I looked at the League's keeper list.

Keepers across the league, so far http://games.espn.com/ffl/tools/showkee ... Id=1624923

Ok. Looks like there's 3 of us.

Anyone else? Let's set a lower-limit of 6 people? If we have fewer than 6, then maybe we skip the league? Unless, you guys have other ideas?

I agree, 6 is what we'd want to have any fun. 3 is pointless.

Pat said he would play again if we could make it up to 6 players.
