<ul><li><p>8/4/2019 Fantasy Football League Constitution</p><p> 1/3</p><p>The League</p><p>Fantasy Football League Constitution</p><p>1. Entrya. League is only open to owners who will stay active for all seasons.b. The inaugural season (2011) will have 12 teams.</p><p>i. If you know someone who would like to join the league, they will be welcome tojoin in the following season as long as we can get an even number. However,</p><p>these teams will be at a disadvantage due to keepers.</p><p>c. There will be a $10 entry fee to join the league.i. Fees will be used for prizes.</p><p>2. Drafta. The draft will be either an auction or a snake depending on league vote each season.</p><p>i. 2011 season will be a snake draft.b. The draft order will be decided by inverse order of the previous years standings.</p><p>i. The last place team will have first pick at what draft position they want then thesecond to last place and so on.</p><p>ii. You may trade draft picks with other owners1. This includes picks in future seasons.2. Notify the league after any such trades.</p><p>iii. If new teams are added, they will take the last two available spots in the draft.iv. The 2011 draft order will be random.</p><p>3. Keepersa. A team may keep 2 players every season.</p><p>i.</p><p>If a team chooses to keep a player, he must forfeit his draft pick in the roundthat the player was drafted in during the previous seasons draft.</p><p>1. If the draft changes from snake to auction or vice-versa a player will bekept at either the ESPN average draft position (ADP) of the previous</p><p>season or by the average dollar amount paid for that player from the</p><p>previous season.</p><p>ii. You may not keep an undrafted player.iii. You may only keep a payer for a maximum of three years.iv. Each additional year that you keep a player his value goes up by one round.</p><p>1. i.e. If you keep a player in the 5th round, the next year he will cost you a4</p><p>th</p><p>round pick.v. Keepers reset each year.</p><p>1. i.e. After two years you will not have your 2 new keepers plus your 2keepers from the season before.</p><p>2. You will only have 2 keepers per year plus rookies.b. A team may keep all rookies that were drafted by that team.</p><p>i. These players do not count as your 2 keepers.</p></li><li><p>8/4/2019 Fantasy Football League Constitution</p><p> 2/3</p><p>ii. You may not keep rookies that were not drafted by onto your team.iii. If you drop a rookie at any time during the year, he becomes ineligible to keep.iv. There is no limit on how long you can keep a rookie.v. Though there is no round penalty for keeping a rookie, if you decide to keep a</p><p>rookie you do not get to have an extra roster spot for him.</p><p>1. He will be considered your 16th round pick (the next rookie you keepwill be your 15th round and so on).</p><p>4. Team ownersa. All owners are expected to compete throughout the season regardless of the standings.</p><p>i. If an owner fails to play out the season, the league will take a vote to kick theowner out of the league</p><p>b. In the case of an owner leaving the league voluntarily or involuntarily, we will find areplacement owner and he will take over the previous owners team. </p><p>5. Tradesa. Trades will go through a two day review.b. If a majority of the league votes against the trade, it will be vetoed.</p><p>i. However, I urge owners not to vote against a trade unless there is reason tothink that there is collusion involved.</p><p>1. The veto process is there to stop cheating, not to change the way otherowners operate their team.</p><p>ii. This is a keeper league so just because you may think it is a bad trade the ownermay be doing the trade to set himself up for the future or he may truly think it is</p><p>helping his team.</p><p>1. This is not for you to decide.6. Free Agency</p><p>a. The league will use a free agent auction.b. Each team will be given $100 dollars to spend throughout the year in free agency.c. After a player is dropped there will be a standard waiver period during which the</p><p>owners can bid for that player.</p><p>d. A silent auction will take place; therefore, the owner will bid as much as he wants to payfor that player without knowing what other owners are bidding for that player.</p><p>e. You may place a $0 bid on a player.f. You still have to drop a player to make room for the new player on your roster unless</p><p>you already have an empty roster slot.</p><p>7. Rostera. The rosters will consist of:</p><p>i. QB, RB, RB, RB/WR, WR, WR, TE, DEF/ST, K, BE, BE, BE, BE, BE, BE, BE.b. Owners are not required to have a valid starting lineup each week if he feels it gives him</p><p>a better chance to win.</p><p>i. i.e. If a team is up by one point going into Monday night, he may bench hisdefense to ensure a victory in fear of the defense getting negative points.</p><p>8.
