    New Dynasty - IDP Heavy - ppr - 12 team

    I'm starting up a new dynasty league. It's heavily focused on defense compared to normal leagues. The best defensive players will only score lower than the most elite offensive players. There are 8 offensive spots, 8 defensive spots, 9 bench, 3 IR and no kickers. The plan is to hold over 18 of the 25-man roster and have a 7-round draft every year. The details are listed below. Pretty much everything is subject to minor changes via league vote. And the draft date could change if we don't get filled up in time.

    Interception 5 3
    Fumble Force 2.75 2
    Fumble Recovery 2.5 2
    Defensive Touchdown 6
    Safety 4 2
    Pass Defended 2.5 1
    Block Kick 4 2
    Tackles for Loss 2.5 0

    If you're not familiar with Yahoo's defensive scoring, you may need to know that tackles for a loss are include in the scoring for sacks, and passed defended are included in interceptions. For example:
    Total for sack = 2.25 (tackle) + 2.5 (TFL) + 1.25 (sack) = 6 points
    Total for interception = 2.5 (pass defended) + 5 (interception) = 7.5
    Total for force/recovery of fumble = 2.25 (tackle) + 2.75 (force) + 2.5 (recovery) = 7.5

    Also note that while I have the password posted here, I will not let anyone join this keeper league. If you join up, you can expect me to contact you, ask a few questions so we can get to know each other. I've run a successful dynasty league for 6 years now with zero turnover. (I'm starting this to get my fix for IDP's and keeping the majority of the roster) For a free league to run smoothly, you need to work with managers that have the dedication and expectations that will fit well together. It's not a job interview. Just know that if you don't respond to communications, you will be booted from the league before the draft.

    Also, be aware that Yahoo doesn't do any real research on IDP's, so you may have to do some extra work in this league or you will get blown out of the water.

    Cheers,
    Matt
