If you like the setup of this league, you might want to try playing in this pay league that I'm running as well. I am doing a mix of full season roto and weekly winners. I'm also counting just about everything. What do yo think of this setup?
$40 League Entry Fee. 20 teams. Free trades and in season pickups. There will be small weekly winnings $2 first, $1 second and during 5 weeks in late August/early September there will be weekly winnings of $5 first, $3 second, $1 third. The rest of the winnings will be paid to the top third of the teams in the league. Rest of winnings will be paid out to season long winners, $150, $120, $90, $60, $40, $25, $15
The draft will be an extended slow draft once all 20 teams in the league have paid. I don't think it will be possible to do a live draft with so many different people with different schedules. You will have up to 33 hours for each pick. The CBS site will automatically send you an e-mail to notify that it's your turn to pick. You could then sign into CBS and make your selection.
Rosters will have 9 hitters and 9 pitchers.
Scoring format will be 13x13 roto with scoring categories of BA (weighted 2), R, RBI, RBI+Runs, SB, SB%, OBP, SLG, OPS, HR, AB/GDP, AB/KO, Fielding Pct. Pitching Categories: ERA (weighted 2), WHIP, BAA, K/BB, K, W, W%, QS, CG, SO, S, S+Holds, S and H Pct,
You will be allowed between 0-3 keepers each year. You can keep any player, but you will lose a draft pick 2 rounds higher in the following years draft. Any player kept will be worth at least a 12th round draft pick, so if you choose to keep somebody you drafted in round 14 or later or a waiver pick up, you will lose a 12th round pick the following year. Each following year, if you choose to keep the same player, you lose a draft pick 2 rounds higher. Any player drafted in the first 2 rounds cannot be kept any year.
For example, your 4th round pick the first year can be kept the second year in place of a 2nd round pick. The following year, that player cannot be kept again since he cannot move up 2 rounds again.
You will also be allowed to the following years draft picks for other draft picks or players. If you make any trade that involves losing a draft pick, you must pay next year's entry fee at the time of the trade.
If you know anybody else who wants to play, forward this e-mail to them. I would like to get up to 20 teams. Currently I have 17 teams for the league.
