League Message

  • Welcome to the second season of the Langley Dynasty League! League will start a soon as it is full. Please take a look at the settings.  Please message me if you are not planning on playing. Good luck!



    League is $100, all financed through LeagueSafe, and 100% of money goes 
    back into the player pot. $960 of the $1600 goes to first ($650), second 
    ($210), and third place ($100), all voted on by majority. $160 will go 
    to the Dynasty Pot every year and $480 will be divided between three 
    separate side pots divided into equal $160 pots. 



    Side Pots are:

    Best Regular Season Record - $160

    High point total (season) - $160

    One-week high-score - $160



    Side Pots are subject to change prior to the draft.



    50% deposit on the following year will be required. This means the 
    inaugural season will run $150 total and following seasons will only run 
    $105 ($50 current year buy-in + $50 deposit for the following year + $5 Fantrax fee). 
    Managers deciding not to return after a season will forfeit their 
    deposit for the following year and that money will go towards the following season fees for the new owner.



    Dynasty Pot will be winnable with the following conditions:

    Back-to-back championships

    Winning all three Side Pots in one year



    16 teams, no divisions, head-to-head and tiebreaker is based head-to-head first and then total season points. The extended (slow) live draft is set to begin in May and the draft will 
    be finalized once all payments are received. There 
    will be a 8 hour time limit per pick with the draft going into sleep mode from 12AM - 6AM EST
    every night. The draft will be set based off last season's standings.  Draft will not snake. 
    All draft picks will be tracked automatically on Fantrax.

    Top 6 teams make playoffs in weeks 14-16.  First tie-breaker is head-to-head, second is season points.  Seeds 1 and 2 will receive a bye week in week 14.  Seeds 3-6 will have a play-in game in week 14.  All other teams will be on bye in week 14.  There will be three consolation brackets that play in weeks 15 and 16.  Seeds 7 and 8 plus the losers of the week 14 playoff play-in game will be the top consolation.  Seeds 9-12 will be the middle consolation.  Seeds 13-16 will be the bottom consolation.

    Post-season the draft will be determined by the following rules:

    Playoff teams in week 15 and 16 will be awarded picks in the reverse order of standings for picks 13-16. 
    All other teams will be awarded draft spots based on the consolation bracket tournaments in weeks 15 and 16.  The draft spots based on these consolation brackets will NOT be based on reverse order of standings, but rather earned by performance in the bracket.  These means, the winner of the bracket will receive the top pick that bracket is eligible for and the lowest performer of the bracket will receive the worst pick the bracket is eligible for.  The Top consolation bracket is eligible for picks 9-12.  The Middle consolation bracket is eligible for picks 5-8.  The Bottom consolation bracket is eligible for picks 1-4.


    Future drafts will have an extended (slow) live 3-round rookie and free-agent draft. 



    Roster spots are:

    1 QB

    3 WR

    2 RB

    1 TE

    1 WR/RB/TE

    1 K

    1 D/ST

    10 Bench

    3 IR



    Rosters will be expanded to 25 following the draft and must be cut down 
    to 20 prior to the start of the regular season. Waivers/Free Agents 
    will open up following the draft every year.



    3 quarterbacks are the maximum and one team can carry on a roster during the season. 4 quarterbacks during the off-season.



    Some scoring changes from standard scoring:



    .5 point PPR

    -2 per INT

    -.5 for SACKS (QB)

    -2 for PICK 6 (QB)

    3 for FIELD GOALS 0-39 yards

    4 for FIELD GOALS 40-49 yards

    5 for FIELD GOALS 50+

    -2 point D/ST 28-34 points allowed

    -4 points D/ST 35+ points allowed

    Again, those are just changes to standard scoring. Anything that is in 
    standard scoring that I haven't listed here you can expect to be in the 
    league and you can review on the league page.





    Some league by-laws:



    Inactive managers:

    Managers that do not set an active lineup by game-time are given a 1st 
    notice warning. If they don't not set a lineup again by 2 hours prior to 
    the 1st game of the week on Sunday the following week, the roster will 
    be locked and the league commissioner will set the lineup for them based 
    off most projected points. At that point, the manager will be removed from the league and a replacement manager will be sought. The 1st notice warning does not revert even if the manager retakes control 
    in the second week. This means if a manager misses 2 weeks during the 
    season even if they are not in conjunction, they are removed from the 
    league.

    An inactive lineup is determined by the following conditions:
    Roster is missing an active QB, RB, WR, TE, or FLEX (an exception to this is last minute injury status changes or healthy scratches)
    K or D is missing an the manager has an eligible replacement on the bench
    K and D are both missing
    Multiple weeks missing and abuse of the K or D roster position leniancy

    Exceptions may be requested and granted, but those are granted at the discretion of the league commissioner and must be requested IN ADVANCE of the Sunday slate.  If an exception is granted, it will be posted on the league forums.



    Inactive rostered players:

    Players are deemed inactive on game-day if they are on by week or are injured and listed as "out".



    Locked team free agent pick-ups:

    In the event a locked team has no available players at a certain position, the commissioner reserves the right to pick up a player from 
    the free agent market 2 hours prior to the start of the 1st game on 
    Sunday of that week. The player to be picked up will be projected as 
    having the most projected points at that position that is available. 
    The commissioner reserves the right to drop a player that will have the 
    least impact on the team and the rest of the league. No waiver claims 
    will be made for locked teams.

    Replacement managers:

    Replacement managers will pay into the league a percentage of the $100 
    league fee based on how much of the 16 week season is remaining. All 
    money from replacement managers will be proportioned into each pot based on percentage.
    Replacement managers are eligible for end-of-season payouts.


    Manager-less teams:

    Teams where a replacement manager cannot be found are not eligible for 
    the playoffs. If a team without a manager would have made the playoffs or wins a Side Pot, 
    that spot will revert to the next eligible team in the rankings. Manager-less teams are not eligible for end-of-season payouts.  


    Protested trades:

    It is the responsibility of the league managers to protest a trade. If a 
    trade receives 4 protests the commissioner will review the trade and 
    put it up for a league vote. Trade protests will be done via fantrax. The league vote will last 2 days, with a 
    judgement call made by the commissioner to shorten the vote based on 
    player availability for that week's games. Trade protests will be made 
    based on collusion and fair-play rather than owners just disliking the 
    trade and how it affects his/her team. The commissioner reserves the 
    right to make the final call on all trades, but will adhere to the 
    league's vote as much as reasonably possible.


    Collusion:

    Owners deemed guilty of collusion will be removed from the league immediately. Replacement manager rules will then be enforced. "Rental" players are not allowed and will fall under the collusion category.


    Tanking:

    Owners deemed guilty of tanking will be removed from the league immediately. Replacement manager rules will then be enforced.


    Commissioner:

    The commissioner reserves the right to make the final call on all league 
    actions. The commissioner will only deviate from the league by-laws 
    under exceptional circumstances
