Ive been running a contract-cap style dynasty league for 10 years, winning it 5 times out of 11 tries. I also play in a 30-team H2H points redraft, a 20 team keeper, and a 16-team redraft. I like 'em deep!
Best win was 2011 in the 16 teamer. The league is set up in 3 tiers - main league, two AAA, and two AA leagues, all 16 teamers playing the same rules. Top 7 in AA moves you to AAA in the next year. Top 3 in AAA gets you into the main league. Bottom guys move down. I won the AAA league going away, getting into the big league for the first time.
Second best wasn't a win - I won the AL pennant in the 30-teamer, but lost in the World Series. 2nd out of 30 isn't bad, nor was the $310 payout.

Been playing since 1986. First league was an NL-only league using Waggoner's rules from the book [below], only difference was were were poor guys right out of college, so we used a tenth of the recommended salaries ($.10 vs $1 min salary). 1st place three years, and stayed active in this league for 10. As we eventually moved away, we still all drove or flew back to Dallas for the draft, then for the winner's celebration with Yoohoo. Winner's portion of pot was usually around $400. Did it all on paper first couple of years, then our commish subscribed to USA Today's BBS stat service, compiled the rankings and faxed them to us each week. Hi-tech baby.
Took a 10 year break after I was spending more time working deals on the phone that I was with my family.
Now just play for free and for fun online. Miss those old days of face-to-face drafts.
EDIT: Players of interest from those early days...
- Von Hayes, Andre Dawson, Mike Schmidt were on my first team.
- Drafted Jeff Bagwell to my farm when he was still wiht the BoSox.
- Drafted Marquis Grissom when he was going to be the next Andre Dawson
- Once worked a deal to get Kevin Bass for Marvell Wynne after Wynne went off in a game with a couple of dingers.

What do you mean I co-run the team with Kyle? What? Who?
Kyle told me you phoned it in last season, and he's the heart and soul of that team

We have an auction in Phoenix every spring for a live NL only auction keeper that was started in 1986. Last year we had guys flying in from Washington(me), Chicago, Minnesota. (people who have moved out of the area since joining the league.)
This is my main money league and is a ton of fun.
