3000 points must be sent in this post.

There will be two SBR Fantasy Football Leagues in 2021 (assuming 22 unique members send me points at the bottom of this post) both hosted by Yahoo, with each league having a 3000-Betpoint buy in! Please note however that there is a prioritized list for filling League I. A list of League I qualifiers is down below and the first 11 members on the list to send points are in. Remember though that entries for BOTH leagues will close once 22 SBR members have sent points, and if those 22 members include less than 11 League I qualifiers, then the earliest non-qualifying members to post up will go into League I.

The two live drafts each lasting 16 rounds are scheduled as follows:

SBR Fantasy Football League I: Tuesday, August 31st at 9:00pm ET
SBR Fantasy Football League II: Wednesday, September 1st at 9:00pm ET

The Rules
Each league will be a 12-team league with a buy-in of 3000 Betpoints, with SBR adding 2600 points to the pot to bring each league pool to 38,600 Betpoints! (The extra 600 points added covers the extra 14th week high score bonus this season). Once the first 22 SBR members send 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 be 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 20th, 2021.

These are straight 12-team leagues 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 15, the 3-seed will face the 6-seed and the 4-seed will face the 5-seed. In Week 16, the 1-seed will face the lowest remaining seed and the 2-seed will face the other Week 15 winner. The SBR Super Bowl will be in Week 17 and NFL Week 18 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).

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.

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.

League I Eligibility List

*-Final year of eligibility, will be dropped next season if not in League 1 this year

The 11th and 12th place League I finishers this season will not be League I eligible next season. Also, the 1st and 2nd place finishers in League II standings this season (regular season standings only regardless of playoff results) will be added to the League I eligible list next season. Exceptions: if I finish 11th or 12th in League I or if League 1 members finish 1st and/or 2nd in League II, it would reduce the number of members that get promoted/delegated.

Aside from yours truly, no member can join both leagues unless we open up League II to do so as we get closer to Draft Day because it has trouble filling.

As the two leagues fill up, there will be individual threads put up to manage each league.
