$20 ESPN .5PPR "Auction and Forget v3" FRI 8/23 @10pm ET

Recommended Posts

Are you a busy person who likes Fantasy Football but life gets in the way of managing your team during the season? This league is for you! 

This league cuts to the chase. You draft and forget about your team until it's time to vote on the payouts (to you of course since you'll win the league by a longshot). This is a DRAFT ONLY league with no Waiver Wire, No Trades, No Weekly Roster Setting. There is literally ZERO TIME COMMITMENT after the draft and during the season.  $20 buy-in via LeagueSafe, 100% payout with majority approval of payouts (pot split TBD via league vote).  I've already run 3 of these leagues this year (1 snake, 2 auction) with good results and we have half the league are people rejoining from the prior leagues so there are currently 6 spots left. 

Draft will be a live auction, $200 budget tentatively set for FRI 8/23 @ 10PM ET.  Time to complete this league’s auction draft is lower than typical, about 2 hours with draft optimizations (with agreement of league, reduced time to nominate a player and to place final bids from default 30 seconds to 15). This league will likewise use these changes as it generated no complaints from the league and most owners actually preferred it over the ESPN defaults – less time just waiting for the counter to go to zero. 

All players are active every week so no having to set your roster each week or worry about filling in for byes. Rosters will consist of 18 total players, all active each week for the entire season. Whoever you win in the draft auction is on the team you'll have for the entire season. This is basically a variant of Best Ball, which ESPN does not support natively so this is an attempt to somewhat recreate the Best Ball experience. The main difference between classic Best Ball and this league is that in this league every member of your team contributes every week whereas in true Best Ball only some of the scores from your team count each week (basically whoever was the highest scorer from each position). The regular season is H2H matchups weekly with the Top 6 teams in the league advancing to the Playoffs where you have 3 weeks of H2H matchups (top 2 teams get a 1st round playoff bye). Scoring is straight vanilla ESPN default settings (QB passing TDs = 4 points, fractional scoring, etc.) except for a .5PPR buff.

Your final roster MUST contain two and only two QBs and two DSTs. You must START 5 each RBs and WRs, and two TEs. You additionally have 2 Flex spots which can be filled by a player with the position RB, WR, or TE. No kickers because honestly, screw kickers they suck. Thus your all-season/every week roster will be QBx2, RBx5, WRx5, TEx2, DST x2, and Flex x2 (any player in position of RB, WR, or TE).  And yes your players will all be active during their Bye week so that's a consideration for building your team and can be an element of strategy for you to consider.  There are no IR spots and again no WW so plan your roster accordingly to account for potential injuries. 

Please do not hesitate to contact me for questions or clarification. Please ensure you are comfortable with the league format before you agree to join the league (and especially before you pay in).  

Link to league is below, and I'll be happy to send you an invite if you provide your email (post in thread or send me a private message in the forum).  Hope to see you all in the league!

Invite sent, welcome aboard!  12 invites sent but one invitation (not ramsfanboy) pending acceptance so at this point there's technically one open spot and first pay, first serve.

I'm down and can pay asap. if not full

First to pay gets the last slot, I'll add you to the league after payment in case the other guy comes through.  Limited the LeagueSafe to 12 teams so you won't get hosed.  LeagueSafe link is here:   https://www.leaguesafe.com/join/3911887
