Players can receive a four year guaranteed contract according to the following rules.
If more than 48 players of Yahoo’s top 100 players on March 15 are available in the draft, players in the first 3 rounds receive guaranteed contracts.
If between 32 and 47 players of Yahoo’s top 100 are available in the draft, players in the first 2 rounds receive guaranteed contracts.
If between 16 and 31 players of Yahoo’s top 100 are available in the draft, players drafted in the first round receive guaranteed contracts.
If less than 16 of Yahoo’s top 100 are available in the draft, then no guaranteed contracts are awarded.
There is a maximum of 6 total guaranteed rounds for the league at one time (so you will always have the opportunity to have four keepers not drafted with guaranteed contracts – assuming you have not traded for more players with guaranteed contracts)
If players with guaranteed contacts released, the owner loses a keeper for the duration of the contract. These players can be traded, but the contract is still guaranteed for the next team
When can a guaranteed contract end early?
-- when a player officially retires
-- when a player dies
-- when a player is not present in Yahoo on March 1
In case of retirement or a player not being present in Yahoo, the owner needs to let the commissioner know.
A players four year clock resets when he is a) drafted or b) released and picked up by another team. It does not reset if he is a) released and picked up by the same team (even later that year) or b) traded. If you pick up a player that needs his clock reset, you need to notify the Commissioner before the end of the season.
The waiver order will be reordered to match the opposite of the current standings at the end of each month. This will steer new young talent towards the weaker teams.
The waiver order will be reordered to match the opposite of the previous year's standings following each subsequent draft.
Trading of draft picks is not allowed.
Trades may not include any arrangements that go beyond the players exchanged.
The only time offseason trades can happen is after keepers have been submitted. Any such trades must involve the same number of players changing hands and will be voted on by the league.
There is a 2 day trade waiting period for all trades. The Commisioner will not speed up any trade approvals. Trades will not be rejected unless there is collusion or wide disagreement by the league.
Intentional losing is not permitted. A team must maintain a viable roster and must make a reasonable effort to activate the best players possible. Commissioner can impose penalties for this behavior that may include loss of keepers and potential removal from the league following the season.
