2005 Fantasy Football League Rules


1. Format

The FFL will consist of all teams in one Division.

2. Season

Regular Season - 17 weeks (each team playes everyother team each week).

Playoff Season - Each team will pay $15 on draft night for the "Extra" Playoff Season.

  • The purse will pay 1st & 2nd, roughly 70% - 30% split (rounded off at descression of the commish).

  • There will be a draft just after the regular season, but you can keep as many or as few players from your roster as you wish, at no extra cost.

  • The draft will be in reverse order of the final regular season standings. 7th place will be in the first draft possision, then it will snake from there.

  • Each team will accumulate points for his entire 14 player roster. The team with the most points at the end of the SUPER BOWL, Wins! If there is a tie, the tie breaker will start from Points scored in the Super Bowl. The team with the most in that game will Win the tie breaker. If there is still a tie, then we count points awarded in the Conference Championships and so on

Eliminator - Participation is not "Mandatory" and there are no fees to pay and no reward for the winner. This game is just for the fun of it.

  • All you need to do is select one winning team each week. But, you can not select a team twice within the same season.

  • After 2 incorrect selections, you are Eliminated! Last team standing, wins.

  • If all the remaining teams lose in the same week, everyone is back in, but you still can't use a previous selection. Those out before the last week only get one "life." Lose once and you are out again. Those teams that were in during the last week, but lost, will get 2 lives.

6. Draft Order

    Will be determined by record of the previous year. The Worst record gets first choice of draft position. Second worst gets the next choice, and so on. New teams in the future will get last choice of draft position.

7. Rosters & Lineups

    The roster size is 14 players, in any configuration. Starting lineups will consist of the following:
    1 -
    2 -
    3 -
    1 -
    2 -
    "Wild Card" players (any positions)

8. Submiting Starting Lineups

    Weekend Games: Starting Lineups must be turned in to the Commissioner no later than "end of day" Friday for players whose games are being  played on Saturday or Sunday. Thursday Night Games: No later than 4pm Thursday for Players whose games are to be played on Thursday night. You must determine by this time if you want to change your line up involving a player in a Thursday game. If you do not Make the choice, the player from last weeks line up will start for that current week.

      (i.e. If you started Payton Manning in week 5 and he is playing a Thursday game for Week 6, then that Owner must call the commissioner by Thursday to make the choice of starting or not starting him for Week 6. If the Owner fails to call, then Payton Manning WILL start for Week 6.

    Thanksgiving Week: No later than end of day Wednesday for ALL player for Thanksgiving Weekend games. Failure to meet the submission deadline means the previous weeks lineup will be used for the upcoming game. The Commissioner will try to have ALL lineups posted by Sunday Morning

9. Determining Winners

    The winning team of each game will be the team whose starters score the most points. In case of a tie the winning team will be the team will be the team whose active roster players score the most points. Example: If every team played 6 games. One team will be 6-0, the next 5-1, next will be 4-2, the next team is 3-3, next is 2-4, then 1-5 and the last team will be 0-6. Each loss will cost $1.00. As commissioner, I am only human.
