10 - 16 teams (depending on interest).

Rosters & (Starters)

    QB: 1-4 (1)
    RB: 1-8 (1)
    WR: 1-8 (1)
    TE: 1-8 (1)
    PK -1-3 (1)
    PN- 1-3 (1)
    Offensive Flex: (+3, RB/WR/TE)

    DT: 1-6 (1)
    DE: 1-8 (2)
    LB: 1-8 (3)
    DB: 1-8 (3)
    Defensive Flex: (+2 DL/LB/DB)

Roster size: 42

Practice Squad: 10 players

Scoring:

TBC. BUT ... each position will be scored differently. On both sides of the ball.

The aim of the league is to reflect that player talent > player position, so that the draft more closely reflect RL drafts rather than RB, WR, WR, QB, WR, RB, Rb etc. & trades for DTs & CBs will happen as frequently as at other positions. Ive seen it work.

In the NFL, where different approaches can be successful (swarming secondary or dominant DL vs air raid, smashmouth or twin TEs), the same will be true that many roads lead to Rome (and success) here.

There are 2 or 3 leagues im in which normalize scoring this way. Ill probably plagiarize unashamedly from all of them.

Practice Squad NOT Taxi Squad

* 10 players.
* If you have a player on your PS that has started and accrued any stats in 2 (or more) NFL games? He can be signed off your PS by another Franchise, as happens in the NFL
* Compensation is available when this happens.
* The team acquiring the player from another franchises PS will forfeit a pick commensurate w/ either draft rnd pick used +1 rnd (ie if you drafted a player in the 4th, the other team will have to forfeit a 3rd to sign the player) OR// if acquired via WW it will be a flat 4th
* Any team signing the player from another teams PS must immediately promote him to Main squad & he cannot be demoted at any point. So, if you plan on poaching a player? Be prepared.
* Once players are promoted from PS - for whatever reason - they cannot be placed back on PS by the same team. Only another team may do this now.
* A player is eligible for PS at any point within the first 4yrs of being named to a 53 man official NFL roster.
* Any player 4yrs removed from the above date is not only non-eligible to be placed on PS but, if already on it, must be promoted off PS & onto your Main squad.
* Players on PS will be exempt from year-to-year salary increases.


Salaries & Cap

Cap will be in-line with NFL cap. Current NFL cap is $168,000,000. We'll keep it at 4 figures ($1,680)
All players on Main, unless under Franchise, RFA, Long Term Ext, will accrue a 10% increase in salary per season.
Players on PS will not.
Reagardless of contract status, any player cut will count 200% of their salary vs cap, BUT only for 1 season, to more closely emulate NFL protocols for accelerated bonuses/salaries etc when cut
eg If a player you want to cut an aging player who just dropped off a cliff production wise and you'd just dropped a 5yr $120 contract? He will count $240 in the current cap yr but ONLY for that current cap year, rather than - say - $60 for next 4 yrs.
Players on IR will count only 25% of their salary towards the cap (to allow owners to bring in FA replacements)
Hard cap will always be in effect except for the post season (End of championship game, thru RFA, FAs, thru till post-draft) to allow for trades, player acquistions and movement etc.

Contracts:

    Franchise:
    Each team may Franchise 1 player per season.
    $ value will be either 120% of current salary OR// avg of top 5 contracts at his position, whichever is the greater value. Per NFL formula.
    No player may be franchised more than twice at the same team. Shouldn't happen often considering the greater of the two formulas will always be used.

    RFA:
    Each team may offer up to 3 RFA tags.
    The tag may only be extended to a player ONCE whilst at a teams roster.
    It is, like the long term & franchise tag extensions, only available to Out Of Contract players.
    Is only for a 1yr period.
    The original team will set the tag level:
      1st rnd pick = $100
      2nd rnd pick = $75
      3rd rnd pick = $25
      7th rnd/Original Tender Pick = $0 (<only valid for players that were previously undrafted in any yr, by any team)

    Long term contract extensions:
    There's a maximum of 2 available per team.
    Contract lengths will be 4yrs
    The value of the contract will be the avg of the top 10 players at their position.
    Each team may extend these contracts to any player, at any point in their contracts, but only ONCE per player, per team.

Draft:
7 round draft to be held the week following the NFL draft
Rnd 1 picks: 4yrs @50
Rnd 2 picks: 3yrs @40
Rnd 3 picks: 3yrs @30
Rnd 4-7 picks: 2yrs @10

WW players:
When a player is acquired via WW, the new team owner may designate a contract yr length (1-4)
Minimum salary is $0.50
BBWW setup that will run on Wednesday
Followed by FCFS that will run a few hrs later.
Waivers will open the week before NFL Preseason Week 1
Waivers will close prior to KO of NFL Superbowl

IR
There will be 8 IR places.
They will only be available to players w/IR status.
There is enough flexibility in starting lineup to allow for a competitive lineup& there will also be enough parity of scoring to allow that you wont be at a disadvantage whether you are starting 3 TEs or 4 DTs.
Players must be removed from IR and team comply with roster restrictions 2 weeks prior to RFA & FA opening.

Trading:
Provided cap and roster requirements are met, trades of any player of any status are allowed.
Trading deadline is prior to the KO of wk10 games
Trading window reopens 1 week prior to RFA & FA opening.

Tiebreakers
Will be setup as per the NFL




No league dues. My treat.

Any interest? Post here, PM or email.

Lucky 7.

So, we've either got 3 (5, 7) or 9 spots left & some good sharks involved.

See where we are post NFL draft.

Nice to see them picking up in whats usually a quieter period in the tank =D>

It is.

We're up to 10.

12 is the minimum. 16 is what id like to hit.

I havent advertised on twitter, reached out to other FF guys, girls, friends or family yet as i was hoping to keep this to Sharks, but probably will in the next week or two.

10 is solid for as quiet as it can get in this subforum this early in offseason though. Nice =D>

As a sidenote?

Dont panic if nothing happens in this thread for a day or two. Im keeping a weather eye on it, it just a question of how quickly, not if, i post :)

11.

Time to get a little excited :)

When we get to 12, ill do a roll call. Check everyones still onboard. Sometimes ppl circumstances have changed from a cple months ago.

Like i say, free league, IDP, contracts, draft, free agency, practise squad etc

Still hoping/aiming for 16, but 12, 14 also work.

When we get the 12 confirmations ill set up the league site, add the scoring, set a draft date and do a Q&A on any queries anyone might have.

Im sure there will be 1 or 2 as we go, but noone's getting penalized for anything early on & most mistakes ppl make will be rectified asap.

Thats the magic 12.

Ill send a PM roll call out, just to make sure every shark who registered interest is still available later today/tomorrow.

At this point ill be asking on twitter now for any shortfall to get up to 16 and/or plug gaps in the 12

Either way, ill be setting up the league site this week or next so everyone can start looking at scoring/ player ranking/ tiers etc
