There are three (3) types of Fantasy Football Leagues we currently support: Standard/Redraft, Keeper, and Dynasty.
In general, choosing the right format for your group may depend on the level of complexity everyone is looking for, as well as their long term commitment to the league.
If you want to start simple and work your way up, you can always update your league format anytime during the season, before the start of the next season.
All Players will be Free Agents at the start of the season and are free to be picked up by Teams via the League Draft. Following years will follow suit.
- Simplest Format
- Fun and Easy to Grasp
- Shortest-term Commitment from Managers
Managers can select a pre-determined number of players from their current rosters, to 'Keep' for the next season, where each player is typically assigned a draft value, based on the round he was originally drafted in. A cost is then normally added onto this; depending on your league's rules this cost can vary.
Prior to the Draft, Teams who have kept players, will have them pre-selected as picks in their respective Draft Round(s). The remaining pool of players will be eligible to be picked up normally via the Draft.
- Added Complexity
- Keep Players
- Draft for Value
- Trade Future Picks
Teams carry their entire roster over to the next season. Much of the experience's value is derived from the long-term nature of the format and connection built with your team and its composition of players.
Fortuitous choices and costly mistakes are magnified and tend to compound over time as the results of these decisions may create Super Teams or even Dynasties.
