$10 established mixed Y! H2H points daily keeper seeks 2

Postby wynams » Tue Jan 15, 2013 10:55 am

The Union of Concerned Gamers has 2 openings in our 12-team mixed. Here are our rules/blog: http://www.theunionofconcernedgamers.com/?page_id=2

We do have a uniquely awesome keeper system that plays out a bit like 7-card draw poker. Teams blindly turn in 0-7 keepers slotted into 1-7 (1's have highest salary, 7's lowest). In our first offline draft, if you do not have a filled 6-slot, you can steal another team's 6 player so long as they pick after you. We repeat this process for the 7-slot. If you don't like the choices of players to steal, you can pass in this first draft.

In our second online draft, we go thru slots 1-5 and anyone with a hole in said slot, picks any free agent. In this draft, you shall not pass (each team leaves draft 2 with 7 players!).

This allows teams who need to rebuild now to not keep fringe/bust players and pick up a fair amount of help going in to our third and final draft which is held live on Yahoo!

A recap of how this played out in 2012 is here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc ... zb1E#gid=0

The two teams available are:
2nd pick: http://www.theunionofconcernedgamers.com/?p=703
5th pick: http://www.theunionofconcernedgamers.com/?p=716

Very democratic league, any manager can nominate a change suggestion and we vote on it throughout the current regular season. The changes which pass vote are implemented in the following season. The core of the league has been playing fantasy sports together for several years, and this league has been in existence since 2009.

We have a league twitter bot which live tweets the yahoo draft and points scored each day of the season (both players and teams): https://twitter.com/ucgnews
While we are a modest fee league, our payout is 100% and we do not use leaguesafe (due to fees, payout structure and have not found it necessary).

We are looking to start our keeper submission and offline drafts in early February. We will also be nailing down the time of the live draft at some point in mid/late Feb.

Questions, comments, concerns welcome here, private message or via twitter (@wynams)
