RB Fantasy Football 2018 *NEW FORMAT*

Post by Sea Monkey » Tue Jul 24, 2018 10:01 am

It is that time of year sports fans! Time for Rusty Bunch Fantasy Football. We will be doing a NEW FORMAT this year for what/How we pay. It will still be the ESPN platform but instead of paying in cans we are NOW going to pay a $65 CASH entrants fee at the beginning of the season. The WINNER will receive a GIFT Certificate from the RB sponsor of your choice (CanSmart, Breweriana.com, ect) and also SECOND PLACE will receive a $100 Gift Certificate And TIRD PLACE will receive $50 Gift Certificate. This way you will be able to choose the can(s) that will actually fit your collection!

Once you join the league, you can pay via Paypal(gift), Cash, Money Order, or Check. We will do multiple leagues if needed. No experience necessary.

If you would like to join and you agree to the $65 entrance fee, just respond "Count me in" below. Details will follow..... :smt026

Got a few questions:
1) Is a live draft held, and if so, when?
2) PPR or standard scoring? Fractional points? Negative points, and for what?
3) Standard 1 qb, 2 wr, 2 rb 1 te format or different?
4) Size of the bench, and is there provision for IR?
5) how many teams in the league?
6) How much will the winner's gift certificate be?
7) Guessing that only the top two teams will win anything. Been in money leagues before where 3rd place got his money back so two more people had something to play for in the last week.

Sorry to be Mr. 50 Questions, but I am interested in doing a money league (my personal league and my buddy's league are just for-fun leagues) and I want to know the parameters on things before getting involved.

Sorry to be Mr. 50 Questions, but I am interested in doing a money league (my personal league and my buddy's league are just for-fun leagues) and I want to know the parameters on things before getting involved.
1) LIVE draft will be scheduled about a week before the regular season start at a day/time "most" agreeable to the members. Snake Draft with draft possition determined randomly 1 hour before draft start.

2) ESPN standard league (NOT PPR) with fractional points(I think. Haven't set up yet). Read ESPN for exact scorring. There are - points for stuff like inteceptions thrown, fumbles lost ect.

3) Yes, standard format 1QB, 2RB, 2WR 1 Flex, 1 TE, 1 D, 1K

4) not sure how many on the standard bench. iF I can set up with a IR slot I will. Not sure until I set it up.

5)Teams will probably be 10-12. If we have more interest than that I will set up a second league. In the past we have done 2 10 team leagues

6)Buy in will be $65. First= $500 Gift Cert from our sponsors, Second= $100 Gift Cert, Third= $50 Gift Cert. ("May" be a tad higher if we have 12 teams insted of 10. ALL money collected will be disbursed)

7) Agree. Bumped buy in by $5 to facillatate a payout for a 3rd place team.

Will auto draft be an option? My schedule this time of year can fluctuate drastically in a moments notice. Count me in and I promise to not do anything stupid other than lose on a consistent basis.

Seeing as I have been in a private league since the early 1980's (before the internet...), I think it would be fun to see what I can do in the RB league.
$65 is cheap. Count me in.

OK, That will give us 10 teams. We have a league. If there is enough interest we can start a second league. Please let me know if you would be interested in doing so.
