This is a 16 team league that takes place during the entire NFL Playoffs, after the regular season has finished. It uses a 1-on-1 bracket playoffs format over a four week period that culminates in the Superbowl.
Each week, you and your opponent will enter an online draft room in order to draft your starting lineup. ONLY TWO TEAMS WILL BE IN THE DRAFT ROOM.
Dues and Prizes
It is a $25 entry fee. First place wins $250 and the glory and the virtual trophy while second place gets $100 and the memory of being a contender. Third place doubles their money and wins $50.
With a bracket system, if you win three games you are in the final. It's that easy!
16 teams will be randomly seeded before the NFL Playoffs begin. Once the bracket is initially set, it is static and it is not reseeded for each round.
Drafting Your Team
Each head to head matchup goes into their private draft room and drafts their starting lineups for that week. It is just two teams going straight at each other.
For the first week, each draft room's draft order is randomly determined. After the first week, the team with the higher cumulative score gets to decide if their draft position in the draft room; they decide if they are picking first or second.
In case of a tie with the cumulative score, a coin flip will determine the order.
Online drafts take place on Fridays in order to know about the status of any injuries. They should take about 15 minutes to execute, and you can also prep a worksheet to draft in your place if you can't make it. Additionally, if both teams want to reschedule their draft room for a certain time of day or night or even switch it to Thursday night or Saturday morning, that works too.
All of these official draft rooms are set up with a two minute clock and no autopick if the clock expires. We are all civilized here. That is the default setting but it can be changed if *both* teams agree to whatever the new definition may be. Clock duration and clock expiration actions can be changed as desired.
The drafts will take place on Customized Drafts
* 0.5 PPR

* -1 fumble lost

* no fractional yardage scoring
* 1 QB, 1 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 RB/WR (6 total players)
In case of a tie, the team with the most consistent player scores for that week will win (as opposed to one player scoring the majority of a team's points). This is measured by comparing the median to the mean, with the smallest difference winning the tiebreaker.
If that is not able to determine the winner, then the team with the highest sum points for all weeks played will win the tiebreaker. If that doesn't break the tie, a 3 out of 5 online rock paper scissors bout will win. Hey, somebody has to win!
No free agency will be in play.
There is a $25 entry fee and all dues will be handled by LeagueSafe and will be required before the playoffs begin.
