Codifying the rules for our fantasy football league.


  • Teams may keep a player for 5 * (number of years they've been on your roster) + last year's auction value
  • Teams may keep 0, 1, or 2 players
  • Teams have until exactly 1 hour before the auction to set their keepers. Failure to do so means you forfeit your keepers.
  • A player who was drafted, dropped, and picked up by another team has a "last year auction value" of what the team acquired him for in the waiver auction, and thus may be kept for ($5 + amount paid for in waiver auction).
  • If a player was traded, they may be kept for ($5 + auction value)


  • Trade deadline is firm, it's your responsibility to be aware of it (no extensions).
  • Trades can be vetoed by any 5 teams voting against it
  • A trade takes 2 days to clear (keep that in mind for Thursday games later in the season!)


  • Teams are divided into 6 team conferences
  • The top 3 teams from each conference make the playoffs
  • The top teams from each conference are seeds #1 and #2 and get a first round bye
    • This happens even if another team has a better record or would win a tiebreaker with the other team (ie, one division is stacked and the other sucks)
  • After the top two, the remaining four teams are seeded based on record and tiebreakers, regardless of division

Seeding tiebreakers (in order)

  • overall record
  • total points for
  • head to head
  • ESPN gets to decide after that

Payout Structure

  • 50 entry fee
  • 1st place: everything else
  • 2nd place: entry fee back
  • Everyone else: nothing
