10 team Vampire League, $50 leaguesafe
Startup draft is on Sleeper, will then transition over to ESPN.
9 owners will draft a 25 man roster. Roster will consist of…
16 Bench Spots (no IR, no Taxi Squad)
Once draft is complete, the 9 non-vampire owners will not be allowed to trade or use waiver wire. The ONLY time a non vampire can use the waiver wire is after they lose to the vampire and a player is taken from their team. The owner who loses the player may replace that player with a player from the waiver wire who plays the same position.
Vampire will be a random selection. Once the league is filled and paid, we will do a random draft order where the 10th pick will be the Vampire.
The vampire will get to pick their roster after the other 9 owners complete the draft. The vampire is the only team that gets to use the waiver wire (except for how explained above).
The vampire will be given the #1 pick in every years draft.
If the vampire wins their game, they get to take 1 player off the other teams roster that was in the starting lineup for their opponent. The vampire must drop a player at that time to meet roster requirements.
The league ends and restarts once the vampire wins the championship.
Since the waiver wire cannot be used by the 9 non-vampire owners, the annual draft will be a 6 round rookie/free agent draft. It will be a linear draft. The picks will be awarded as follows…
Winner of the 9/10 Game
Loser of the 9/10 Game
Winner of the 7/8 Game
Loser of the 7/8 Game
Loser of 4/5 first round game
Loser of 3/4 Game
Winner of 3/4 Game
If the vampire falls into any of those spots above the last place team, everyone slides down accordingly.
