Hi fellow Fantasy Baseball Managers,
I have an opening for my $200 5x5 Roto Redraft League. This league is a 100% payout league that uses League Safe. At the end of the year, the majority of the league has to approve the payouts. So you know your money is safe.
If you have any questions or would want to join the league, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is a 5x5 Roto league with your standard categories. However, this league is slightly different than your average league. This league has a separate playoff that corresponds with the actual baseball playoffs!! The scoring for the playoff part of the season uses the old Sandbox points scoring system!!
This league has a regular season prize pool and a playoff prize pool.
To better understand, please read the details below.
Regular Season Payout
4th: No payout, but makes playoffs
1st : 70% of transaction fee prize pool
2nd : 30% of transaction fee prize pool
Transaction Fees for Add/Drops
What makes this league special is that whenever you add/drop players using your Waiver Budget, you will be charged the same amount as your Waiver Budget as transaction fees. Each addition of a free agent will also cost $1. All the transaction fees will go towards a playoff pool at the end of the season.
To compensate, this league only has 10 teams and has 3 extra bench spots so owners can draft a team rely on their bench instead of making many add/drops over the course of the season.
Example: If by the end of the year, Team A has $50 left in their FAAB and added 100 players from the free agent pool, Team A will need to pay $150 in transaction fees. Once teams owe $50 in transaction fees, they must pay before they make anymore transactions. Each team can prepay transaction fees as well.
The top 4 teams at the end of the baseball regular season makes the playoffs. The playoff draft will be held before the 1st division series game.
The draft will NOT be a snake draft. The top team gets top pick each round and the 4th place team gets the 4th pick each round.
The line up drafted will remain throughout the playoffs. Each team will draft a roster of C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF, OF, OF, DH, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P. The playoffs will use a points scoring system and the team with the most points wins.
