    SBR Fantasy Football Leagues 2017 (3000 Point Buy-Ins!)

    There will be THREE SBR Fantasy Football Leagues in 2017 (assuming 33 unique members send me points at the bottom of this post) all hosted by Yahoo, with each league having a 3000-Betpoint buy in! For the first time ever, the three live drafts each lasting 16 rounds will all take place the same week as follows:

    SBR Fantasy Football League: Tuesday, August 29th at 8:00 ET
    SBR Fantasy Football League II: Thursday, August 31st at 8:00 ET
    SBR Fantasy Football League III: Saturday, September 2nd at 4:00 ET

    If you have a preference as to which league you would rather be in, please make a post declaring so when you send your points. Keep in mind though that while doing so will give you preferred priority, it does not guarantee you will be placed in that league. Also, the Saturday afternoon league in the USA should accommodate any Europeans that would like to join

    The Rules
    Each league will be a 12-team league with a buy-in of 3000 Betpoints, with SBR adding 2000 points to the pot to bring each league pool to 38,000 Betpoints! Once the first 33 SBR members send me 3000 points via the “Give Points” button below, they will receive the Yahoo Invite link to their specific league via PM. Please remember to make your SBR handle obvious when you name your team at Yahoo so that we know who everybody is. The drafting order will randomized as soon as the team list for a particular league is finalized and the draft will be the standard snake format. You will have 90 seconds for each draft pick. Also note that each league has unlimited transactions, but the trading deadline is November 11th, 2017.

    These are straight 12-team league with NO DIVISIONS. The top six seeds based on overall standings will make the playoffs with the top two seeds getting first round byes, thus being assured of being in the semifinals and winning points. In Week 14, the 3-seed will face the 6-seed and the 4-seed will face the 5-seed. In Week 15, the 1-seed will face the lowest remaining seed and the 2-seed will face the other Week 14 winner. The SBR Super Bowl will be in Week 16 and NFL Week 17 will be ignored.

    The League Champions get 18,120 Betpoints, the Championship Game losers gets 6,040 Betpoints and the semifinal losers each get 3.020 Betpoints. Additionally, the high scorers for each week of the regular season will get 600 Betpoints (with ties split evenly).

    Here are all the rules, with some highlights being that only 4 points are awarded for touchdown passes, this is a PPR league that gives 1 point per reception and kick return touchdown points are awarded to BOTH the defense/special team and the player: Also there is both fractional scoring and negative scoring.

    Roster:
    Current Roster Size: 16
    Total Starters: 9
    Total On Bench: 7

    Starting Positions
    Quarterback (QB) 1
    Running Back (RB) 2
    Wide Receiver (WR) 2
    Tight End (TE) 1
    Flex (RB/WR/TE) 1
    Defense/ST (D/ST) 1
    Place Kicker (K) 1

    There are no limitations on what positions you draft, just make sure that you make the appropriate moves each week to field a valid starting lineup. Also, waiver claims are processed via a weekly rolling list based on standings. Thus, the last place team gets first crack at free agents, but once it gets one player the team moves to the bottom of the list.

    Scoring:
    Offense
    Passing Yards 1 point per 20 yards
    Passing Touchdowns 4
    Interceptions -1
    Rushing Yards 1 point per 10 yards
    Rushing Touchdowns 6
    Receptions 1
    Reception Yards 1 point per 10 yards
    Reception Touchdowns 6
    2-Point Conversions (pass, run, reception, fumble recovery in end zone or reverse two-point return) 2
    Fumbles Lost -1
    Offensive Fumble Recovery TD 6
    Kick Return TD 6

    Kickers
    Field Goals 0-49 Yards 3
    Field Goals 50+ Yards 4
    Point After Attempt Made 1

    Defense/Special Teams
    Sack 1
    Interception 2
    Fumble Recovery 2
    Touchdown 6
    Safety 2
    Block Kick 2
    Kickoff and Punt Return Touchdowns 6
    Points Allowed 0 points 10
    Points Allowed 1-6 points 6
    Points Allowed 7-13 points 3
    Points Allowed 35+ points -5

    Playoff/Seeding Tiebreakers:
    If two or more teams finish tied in the standings, the following tiebreakers will be used to determine the official order of seedings:

    1. Total fantasy points (season total).
    2. Fantasy points scored in last week's matchup.
    3 Fantasy points scored in the matchup two weeks prior.
    4. The comparison continues until the tie is broken or no more weeks remain to compare. At that time, a coin flip will settle the tie.

    Please note:
    Teams must have identical winning percentages to be considered tied in the standings.
    A team with an 8-4-1 (.654) record will be seeded ahead of a team with an 8-5 (.615) record. A team with an 8-6 (.571) record WILL be tied with a team with a 6-4-4 (.571) record.

    Will the draft be in August? I go on vacation in September and will be traveling Labor Day weekend so it's kind of important for me to be able to know a draft date, or be assured it's not that weekend. Thanks LT.

    I actually wasn't going to get in this year. But I like the new 3,000 pt entry fee. That won me over.

    Thanks LT!
