Rule Book

Unfortunately, there needs to be some rules, but the great thing is at the end of each season owners will be able to suggest rule changes that will be voted on by all the owners. In order to enact a rule change there needs to be support for the change from 70% or greater.

  • League is run on Yahoo Fantasy Football
  • Dues are due by the end of week 3, If not paid in full the team is locked until dues are paid
  • Only the commissioner can veto trades
    • If owners are unhappy with the trade, they can make a case against the trade directly to the commissioner within 48 hours of the trade acceptance
  • Week 12 Trade Deadline
  • Trades reopen after the Hall of Fame Game
    • If the Hall of Fame game is canceled, then it is at the end of the day PST that the game was scheduled on
    • Trading of Picks is allowed however only 1 pick can be traded at a time
  • Rule changes can only be implemented in the off season unless there is a 100% support for the proposed change

Keeper League


This is not your average keeper league, things are a little more complicated than others. These unique settings set the Battle Royale apart and keep it intense and fun throughout the season.

  • Each team is allowed 3 keepers
  • Each team is also allowed 1 developmental player
    • A Developmental player is somebody that meets the following requirements
      • Less than 500 Total Yards (RB/WR/TE) or 1500 Total Yards (QB)
      • This player can be anybody that meets the yardage requirements (Rookie, Veteran, Injured Player Etc)
  • Keepers must be submitted to the commissioner before kick-off of the Hall of Fame game
    • If the Hall of Fame game is canceled, then it is at the end of the day PST that the game was scheduled on
  • If a team decides not to keep any players or fails to report their keepers by the deadline then they will receive compensatory picks at the end of the draft

MVP


At the end of the season, managers vote on who they think is the fantasy player MVP. The team who happens to have that player on it will get a $10 discount on the buy in the next season.

MVT


At the end of the season, this award is given out to the team that has the most beneficial trade of the year. This is calculated by looking at the players traded away and the points they would have earned in the remainder of the season, and the players they received and the number of points they earned in the remainder of the season.

The winner of the MVT Award will win $10 discount on the buy in the next season.

The MVT Award is paid for by the manager who accumulates the most starting bye week players. Meaning if a manager in week 9 starts a QB who is actually on a bye that week, that counts towards their total of starting bye week players. This should help encourage those managers who totally forget about their team come week 6.

If no manager starts a bye week player for the entire year. The commissioner pays the additional $10.
