Default $50 Fantasy Football League (Yahoo SNAKE DRAFT, xbignick, League #1, 2017)

DRAFT DATE: Monday, August 28th, 9PM EST
DRAFT ORDER:

1. xbignick
2. jarrodsalas
3. Vtpa
4. huskerman47
5. LiftingAddict
6. ironmike1229
7. tennelson55
8. Banshee
9. Athey49
10. shotgun1970
11. Amb012
12. TheMosh



Welcome to another year of Fantasty Football!

If you've joined in previous years, this post is basically identical. The only change is prizes will be done through leaguesafe this year. I still encourage everyone to read the entire post before answering the one question I need answered.

You need to make a leaguesafe account if you do not have one.

This is the 1st of multiple leagues I will be running and the cheapest of the bunch. The rest will all be $50 like this one or higher. If you don't like standard snake draft I will also be running auction leagues. Those are less traditional but honestly funner and more skill-based.

All team selections will take place between (most) of week 3 preseason games and the opener, September 7th. This league will draft Monday, August 28th, 9PM EST but the date and time are fluid.

We're looking for owners will will be active all year long! Eliminated? Keep playing, don't ruin the league for others (at the very least fill roster positions).

==============================================================================================================================

Sign-up list (not draft order, BOLD & GREEN=CONFIRMED):

1. xbignick
2. shotgun1970

3. Athey49
4. Vtpa
5. huskerman47
6. ironmike1229
7. jarrodsalas

8. LiftingAddict
9. Banshee
10. tennelson55

11. TheMosh
12. Amb012

Reserves if needed:
13.
14.

==============================================================================================================================

Entry:

Post in thread to join, spot confirmed when you make payment through leaguesafe. I'll send out the actual league join link for yahoo closer to draft. I don't need your e-mail like I did in past years but I might need confirmation through PM for leaguesafe/yahoo confirmations to make sure you joined and paid correctly.

The only real question I need answered:

Will you be making payment to leaguesafe through E-CHECK/BALANCE TRANSFER or CREDIT CARD (3% fee applies for CC)?

I need to know this because if the former you can join right away, but the latter have to wait so I can change league settings and everyone won't have to pay 3%. This is a work-around to save most people 3% on their entry fees.



==============================================================================================================================

League Type:

H2H, Yahoo standard 12-man SNAKE DRAFT. Draft order will be randomed by a moderator 3 times once the payment deadline has passed. The waiver order will be reverse of that, no trades of picks, individual or total.

(QB throwing TDs=4 pts, rushing/receiving TDs=6 points, receiving/rushing 10 yards=1 point, throwing yards 25=1 point, etc.) - Everything that is Yahoo standard non-PPR. If you think he will be a good fantasy player then he probably is in this style. The only change is that individual player TDs/yards on returns (believe Yahoo only has TDs anyway) will be removed from the calculation. Special teams TDs from D/ST, however, will still count as normal. So for instance the Texans D/ST will get the TD scoring but the individual player, say Joe Joseph, if he's a returner and a receiver someone may be starting will not. Again, team yes, player no.

Positions are - QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, WR, TE, K, D/ST | 6 bench spots to fill as you please.
Playoffs - Weeks 15/16
Trades - Commissioner approval: I've never really had to block a trade before in all the leagues I've been running leagues on here. No trading two starting RB for a bench WR, basically no extreme obvious lopsided trades. Trades will mostly be looked at if a team already eliminated is sending their stars out. I'm not going to block good deals even if I wouldn't do them myself. No trading paypal or in-real life value for players.
Note: if a trade is going to go through that week before the first game then I will push it through if I see it before it processes, but if a player is playing during the processing time or it is set to go through the following week I need both sides to tell me to push it through.

==============================================================================================================================

Prizes:

All money taken will be given out. 12 people, $50 each so $600 in cash prize.

1st place: $300
2nd place: $200
3rd place: $100

If by chance there are bonuses in the prize pool due to people joining with referalls (for instance I tried to get a $10 bonus for the league that might apply but I'll still pay $50 total myself), it'll be handed out % similar to above. I'm not handing out a referral of my own, don't want any potential conflict of interest.

I currently have it on commissioner payout but I may change it to majority, leaguesafe noob here so not sure what's the norm/best.

Withdrawal options:



==============================================================================================================================

Leaguesafe FAQ I personally had questions on and did research on:

Q: Can a person from any country join?

A: In order to be eligible to use LeagueSafe services, you must be at least 18 years of age, and a resident of the United States or Canada. Canadian Members are able to use LeagueSafe, however LeagueSafe’s full feature set may not be available to Members in Canada. Canadian Members may pay only by credit card, and LeagueSafe accepts only credit card payments from issuing banks that participate in the Address Verification System.

Q: Will they report automatically for taxes (as paypal does)?

(NO.) It is the sole responsibility of each Member to determine the applicability of any taxes that may be due as a result of participation in a League. LeagueSafe is not responsible for tax advice, calculation of taxes that may be due, or reporting tax data to any agency. This applies to all agencies and levels of government.


If anything changes everyone will be alerted to the change via a post in this thread. Please try to keep any posts in this thread for the league and not through PM.

Thank you,
Nick

Alright got you guys down, don't forget the one question I need to know.

Will you be making payment to leaguesafe through E-CHECK/BALANCE TRANSFER or CREDIT CARD (3% fee applies for CC)?

If e-check/balance transfer I can send the invite now, if not you'll have to wait until all e-check done paying.

-----------


Thinking this right now for other leagues in case anyone curious:

#1: $50 standard
#2: $50 auction
#3: $100 standard
#4: $100 auction
#5: bigger money league if others fill

Got you down husker and iron. Eagles this is a standard draft, want in bud? We might only be at 5 left already!

Looks like the site is being updated so no one can pay to join a league for a couple days.

Oh I misread it, thought those were just some other options. I'll probably just do credit card since I don't really know what the others are

Alrighty. For anyone curious e-check is basically a bank transfer, just need your bank routing number and account number but I'll confirm that after the site is done updating and I can pay.

Got you down jarrodsalas, 4 left in a little under 24 hours, not bad!

I'm excited, already did like a dozen mocks. I really want a top 2 spot lol.

Going to try e-check tonight to see if they've updated the site and then if it is I'll send link out to those paying by e-check and credit card hopefully next week. No rush, plenty of time.

I do like 4th and 5th actually, tried it last night and got a really good team with 5th. Mocks are really fun - I'm doing 4 or 5 a day just for fun.

I'm about to pay now for my spot. I'll send a link out tomorrow if you want to pay by e-check. If you want to change from credit card to e-check let me know and I'll give you the link to.

This is what you need to fill out for e-check and there's NO FEE.



Edit: only took me about a minute and I'm good to go

Alright cool, no problem I'll let you know when. We got 4 more left!

I sent a PM to shotgun1970 a few days ago, if you by chance see this post, perhaps logged out, please let me know your payment preference. Looks like he hasn't logged in in a few days.

I am in and will pay by CC. Thanks for hosting.

I am in either way, but would you consider using the fractional equivalent of your current Passing, Rushing, and Receiving Yards (to keep 99 yards rushing/receiving from equaling 9 points instead of 9.9 point fractional score / 99 yards passing from equaling 3 points instead of 3.96 point fractional score) ? :

.04 = 1 yard passing
.1 = 1 yard rushing
.1 = 1 yard receiving

If it was your initial intent to have and keep whole numbers, it is understood.

If not, would you, and then everyone else, consider the change??

Thanks.
