New 20-Team H2H-Categories Keeper League (Yahoo)

Postby ironman » Thu Jan 10, 2013 1:05 pm

I've been running a successful 20 team keeper league on Yahoo since 2003. In 2009 we became a money league as well. From time to time we've had a manager not return and finding a suitable replacement can sometimes be a pain. Being that we're a 20 team league things can be a little too in-depth for the casual fan and they quickly become overwhelmed and give up. Last year we came up with an idea of having a second "B-League" as a sort of feeder system for our main one. The setup would be identical to the current 20 team league except with two changes.

1) Entry would be only $25 as opposed to the main league's $50 entry.
2) Teams would only keep 2 players each year as opposed to 5.

The B-League would serve as a sort of vetting process to get quality new managers in our main league when the time comes. Folks could join this new league with lower stakes and get a chance to sort of feel out the format if they weren't used to such a deep league.

The league is run on Yahoo and we do a 5x5 H2H format with OBP in place of AVG. We do a live online draft through Yahoo.
20 teams will be divided into 4 divisions of 5. With a 22 week schedule you will play every team once and some of your divisional foes a second time. Top 8 teams make the playoffs with the 4 division winners securing the top 4 seeds.

The entry fee is $25 and the prize breakdown will be as such.

First Place = $250
Second Place = $100
Third Place = $75
Fourth Place = $50
Fifth Place = $25

We will use LeagueSafe.com to collect and distribute payments.

For more information you can check out http://ifantasyleagues.blogspot.com/

There is a online sign up form there too at http://ifantasyleagues.blogspot.com/p/2013.html
Filling out the sign up sheet will confirm your spot in the league and when Yahoo opens up baseball you will be notified to join the league then.

We've officially reached the halfway mark of 10 managers registered. I'm quite happy with how things have shaped up so far. We got some good competitive managers it looks like and we should have no problem filling this league in the next few weeks.
