This league is loosely based on Ron Shandler’s Rotisserie 500 leagues he described in his publication this year. There are a number of differences because Yahoo cannot handle some if the settings and that format would best work in a live draft.
Each owner will have $400 for the auction. Any amount remaining will be that owners FAAB dollars to be spent on the Waiver for the upcoming season. If you spend $400 during the auction you will have $0 FAAB during the year and will not be able to pick up any Waiver Wire players – only Free Agents. If you spend $260 during the auction you will have $140 FAAB to spend on Waiver Wire Players during the year.
The league will have a very limited bench to encourage difficult decisions about when to add or drop a player. The categories are different than most standard roto leagues.
