Diamond Dynasty Startup Draft


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I have been running various successful Dynasty Fantasy Leagues for Football, Baseball and Basketball for the past 7 years. I have created a new Dynasty Fantasy Baseball League that is set to draft on January 30th at 8:00 PM EST. The draft date would only change if multiple owners can't make the draft and/or no replacements can be found. I will try and cover as much as I can here but please check out the league constitution at the end of this post for more details about the league.

 

GroupMe is required to be in the league. Makes communicating a lot easier and I will also post important league dates on GroupMe.

 

Please read below for some basic information about the league.

 

  • H2H Points Scoring with 10 Starts Limit for Starting Pitchers per week

  • 14 Team League

  • 7 Teams Make the Playoffs with the #1 seed earning a bye week

  • Snake Draft for both the Startup Live Draft (on ESPN draft software) and Startup Minor League Draft (takes place on league Message Board and inverse order of Live Draft)

  • Once everyone has paid their entry fee, joined the league and league GroupMe, the Startup Live Draft slot order will be determined using a draft order generator. Based on that order, each team will then select which pick they want in the Startup Draft.

  • 33 Man Active Roster (Live Draft)

  • Can keep up to 33 players on active roster year to year

  • 7 Man Minor League Roster (Drafts done on League Message Board and Rosters Tracked on Google Sheet)

  • Can keep up to 7 players on Minor League Roster year to year

  • Blind Bidding to acquire Free Agents throughout the season (no bidding during offseason)

  • Scoring System being used has proven to be successful in Co-Commish's league that is now is going into it's 6th season

  • $50 Entry Fee through LeagueSafe with Majority Approval for Payouts

 

Payouts

1st Place- $450

2nd Place- $150

3rd Place- $50

Regular Season Points Champion- $50

If you are interested in joining the league and/or have any questions about the league, please email me at videogamer26@hotmail.com. If interested in joining, please include how many years of fantasy/dynasty baseball experience that you have, why you'd be a good fit for the league, and what email address I should send the league and GroupMe invites to. I want active owners who are committed to being in this league for the long haul. I am looking forward to filling up this league and getting started!

 

Thanks

DaveP

I like the set-up. I’m just looking for a higher buy-in. Let me know if you’re willing to raise the stakes.

A couple of my buddies are in the league and they don't want to go any higher unfortunately. I would have been in favor of it though.

Jan 30th???  You can't be serious.  

It's a dynasty league so draft date doesn't matter. I've seen people draft redraft leagues for baseball in November/December so with this being dynasty it shouldn't be a problem for anyone who knows what they are doing.

I could very well be interested. Do you have an official date and time for the draft? The only date this week that definitely wouldnt work for me would be Wednesday.

Nothing is official regarding a draft date/time. Not a lot of initial interest in the league the past few days but it is also 2 months away from the season so I'm open to different draft dates whether it be next week or any week in the next month. If we were to draft this week it would be one of Tuesday or Thursday night between 7 and 8 PM EST but doubt the league fills up in time for one of those dates.

How many spots left to fill?
