League Full! 12-Team PPR, $75 Buy-In, ESPN Redraft League


#1

Welcome to Gulf Dwellers!

My name is Nick and I’ll be your commissioner. After experiencing a few leagues sourced from the Fantasy Footballers Community Forums last year, I’m taking a few lessons learned and starting my own league. What are those lessons?

  1. No money at stake = no action, no fun. Gulf Dwellers will have a healthy amount of cash in the pot, weekly payouts, and sizable winnings going to the league champ. More details are below.
  2. Anonymity is lame. We’ll attempt to make this a local Tampa Bay league and will host a live draft for all who can attend.
  3. A democratic approach to starting up leagues with strangers simply doesn’t work. All details listed below are set and will not be changed – from scoring, roster, free agency, draft date, buy-in, payouts, playoff format, everything. The idea is that participants will self-select, or decide that this league is a unique fit for them. Then, when they decide they’re in, they’re IN. The result will be a league filled with committed, active participants.

All details for the Gulf Dwellers league are below. Message me if you’re in!

Draft Date, Type – Snake Draft, Saturday 8/25, 6:00pm EST

League Website – ESPN

Number of Teams – 12

Buy-In – $75

Payouts – $25 to each week’s top scorer during the regular season, $150 to 2nd place and $425 to league champ.

Cash Management – Venmo (LeagueSafe doesn’t allow weekly payouts). Now for an obligatory note on trust. We don’t know each other yet, so I get it. But I promise you that I’m a real person just trying to assemble a fun, competitive league. I’ll do what it takes to get you comfortable – we can talk by phone, meet for a beer, whatever you’d like. Plus, payouts will start week 1 (to the weekly top scorer) so you’ll see right away that there’s no scamming going on here.

Communication Method – Email.

Rosters – 9 starters, 6 bench spots. Starters are 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 RB/WR/TE, 1 D/ST, 1 K

Free Agency – Free agent auction budget of $100 for the season. No limit on acquisitions.

Trades – Trade deadline 11/21/18 at 12pm (just before week 12). No limit on trades. 2 day trade review period, 4 votes required to veto trades.

Playoffs – Top 8 teams make the playoffs (there is only 1 division). Playoffs start in week 14 and end after week 16 matchups. 3 rounds, single week matchups, no byes.

Scoring Type – Head to head

Scoring – ESPN standard PPR, see screenshot:
