Thread: 2009-2010 Fantasy League Rules (Full)

  1. #1

    Default 2009-2010 Fantasy League Rules (Full)

    The Basics
    1. 14 teams in the league. 15 wrestlers per team. You'll start 11 wrestlers per week, one guy at each weight from 125-285 and then a "flex" guy from any weight you choose who will be eligible to score points at whatever weight he wrestles.

    2. There isn't going to be head to head during the regular season. The standings will go strictly by total points scored.

    The regular season will run up through Conferences. After Conferences the 4 highest scoring teams will advance to the finals during NCAA's, and we're also going to take two wild cards this year.

    These wild cards will be the two highest scoring teams during Conference week that wouldn't already be going to the next round anyway. Come NCAA's I'll wipe the scores clean and it'll be a 6 way scramble for the championship.

    3. 3 points for a win by decision, 4 for a major, 5 for a tech with back's and 6 for a pin. Same as we've done the last two years.

    4. All dual meets count for points. Other events that will count for points will be the All Star Match, Kauffman Brand Open, Las Vegas, Reno, Midlands, Scuffle, Penn State Open, Michigan State Open, NC State Open, Body Bar Invitational, Navy Classic, and then our new additions this year the Brockport tournament, the EMU Open, and the Binghamton Open. (EDITED)

    5. Wrestlers who win the Vegas, Reno, Midlands and Scuffle tournaments will get a ten point bonus added to their scores. Wrestlers who finish second in those tournaments will get five bonus points.

    6. Wrestlers who win the Big 10 and Big 12 tournaments will get 16 bonus points added to their scores, those finishing second in these two tournaments will get 12 bonus points. The guys who win OW at those tournaments will also get 5 bonus points. All other conferences will have bonuses of 12 points for a championship and 8 points for a second.

    7. Trades are permitted, free agency is not. We'll have a trading deadline this year of 2/18 (EDITED).

    8. Supplemental will be back during the holiday weekend in its 3 round format.

    New Rules/Changes
    1. Keeper Rule will be the same as last year. I detailed it in the other thread. You keep a guy, he counts as your first rounder.

    2. We're eliminating the rule where you don't get points if your wrestler bumps up a weight in a dual. If your wrestler wrestles in a dual and wins you get his points.

    However if your wrestler bumps up and loses but his back up wins you don't get the back ups points.

    The rule from last year where if your wrestler doesn't wrestle and his back up wins will stay the same. You will get those points just as long as someone else doesn't have the back up.

    3. Back Ups will be eligible for tournaments this year. I meant for them to be eligible last year but the season got started before I could clarify. The difference between tournaments and duals however will be that in tournaments to get points from a back up you will have to specifically declare that back up in your line up for the week.

    4. If your wrestler beats a guy in the D1CW Top 25 at a tournament that we don't score you'll get points for that.

    5. If you trade a guy away, but then for some reason want him back you'll have to wait three weeks before you're able to trade back for him.

    6. NCAA's will deviate from normal scoring. We will use official tournament scoring there, not the scoring that I detailed in the "Basics" section. All other tournaments will continue to be scored in the 3/4/5/6 format.

    Champions
    07/08: Trusty
    08/09: Lost

    Anything that I missed that I said I was going to do this year please let me know.

    Any questions about the rules by all means ask them.

    Where is this thing about the trade deadline coming from???

    We had probably as many trades after 2/1 last year as we did during the rest of the season. I think thats possibly the MOST IMPORTANT time to ALLOW trades, since people can shore up their appropriate holes in time for conferences/ncaas.

    Making a smart trade or two before conferences can mean the difference between making the playoffs or not, as shown by our 2 point margin of victory in the wildcard race last year.

    Or it can allow teams with no chance of making thep layoffs to sell off their good wrestlers.

    Which is why the Commish has to police and approve all trades, something I heard you did a poor job of last year.

    Last year our 2nd to last person made the playoffs and finished in the money, and the margin of difference between that and failing to qualify was the points he got from ONE trade. The wildcard adds a lot of spice.


    After conferences trades should obviously be limited to only those who made the playoffs.

    I'm so amped for this to start again... I'm already looking over some draft stuff, even though schedules aren't even out yet.

    This thing about the trading deadline has been there in the rules since I created the first draft for this year back in June. Its not like this has come out of nowhere if you were paying attention.

    I may kick the deadline back two weeks since that would kind of coincide with the end of the dual season.

    I'm not super attached to it though, so if you can find seven other people (plus you which would make eight of fourteen in the league) who don't want a trading deadline I'll drop it.

    We did not have a trade deadline last year Jensens. I think I made half my trades after 2/1

    I'm in favor of a trade deadline.
