BSG FFB - Promotion/Relegation - Year 1 and 2

BSG FFB - Promotion/Relegation - Year 1 and 2

Postby FTN » Wed Aug 04, 2010 8:16 pm

Update 7/25/11 Please scroll down to the bottom of this post for the update

Weird thread title.

This idea comes from a fantasy baseball league I used to participate in. Basically, this is how its going to work.

I need 1 other person to set up a league and be commish. We're going to do two 12 team leagues, standard scoring, non-PPR. For year 1, we'll run the two leagues side by side. Top 6 teams make the playoffs from each league.

In Year 2, the Top 6 teams from both leagues will merge into the "A League", while the bottom 6 teams will move into the "B League" for Year 2. Its like promotion and relegation.

The goal is to keep the same people involved, because it will make things more interesting. Plus, more trash talk.

My hope is to make this a free league, as to not exclude anyone, but to make it a keeper league, where you can keep 2 players per year (15 man squad) so that adds some depth to it and its not just a throw-away league that people lose interest in right away.

I'm sure people will lose interest, but its worth a shot. Ideally, we'd get 24 people who like fantasy football a lot, and who are active members here who will stick around. If we really need a spot to be filled and a lurker with 10 posts steps up, then fine. We'll keep the rosters compiled in a spreadsheet to manage keepers.

So, signup list is below. Just register your interest. And if you're willing to be the commish for the 2nd league, just post that. This will be relatively easy. And we should try and get the participants soon, so we can plan a draft time that works for people.

I'll create League A now, hopefully we get another commish to step up and then create League B too and grab a decent draft slot. If it has to be changed later, so be it.

Here are the league settings/rules

Teams per league: 12
Roster spots: QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, TE, FLEX (WR/RB/TE), K, DEF, BN x 6
Stats: QB = 25 yards/pt, 4 pts per TD, bonus at 300, 350, 400. RB/WR = 10/pt, bonus at 100, 150, 175. No PPR
Draft: Live draft, sometime near end of August
Draft format: Snake
Keepers: 2 per season, no limit on how many years you can keep them

So, sign up. It should be fun.

UPDATE

Okay, the 24 people above need to confirm whether they are coming back or not. If you are not returning, I need to fill your spot in the league. The promotion/relegation results are on the last page. We need to get the rosters from 2010 set, and then we'll go through the draft procedure. But first I need to make sure we have 24 people. So if you participated in Year 1, please let me know if you are coming back. I want to have everyone decided by August 1, if possible.

THANK YOU

How do you plan to manage keepers between two leagues?

thats a good point.

I think after year 2, when we do relegation and promotion, the teams in League A that survived would get to select their keepers first from their teams, and the teams being promoted from the B league would then get to select their keepers, but if one of their guys was kept by an A league team, they'd have to drop him.

I think we could do something similar after year 1, but do keeper selection based on most points scored.

So you get the 12 playoff teams, and then the team with the most points gets to select his 2 keepers from his team. Team 2 then gets to make his selections, etc etc.

Its not perfect, but it should work. Also, this helps the teams in the B league build stronger teams to fight for promotion, because the teams in League B who get promoted to League A are going to have to drop some really quality players. So the talent pool should always have a decent amount of turnover.

im starting these 2 leagues fresh, this has nothing to do with any other BSG league, you guys can still have that/those leagues if you want. this is a keeper/multi year league.


also still hoping someone else steps up to set up that other league. CFP? You're here all the time and seem reasonably responsible.

not really. the keepers will be interesting, but not confusing. i'm guessing the 6 promoted teams will quite often lose both of the players they originally want to keep. but it's not like this will be too crippling because you can't always predict who will be elite in the NFL.

Why don't the new teams in each league "inherit" keepers from the teams they replace?

For instance, the first-place finisher in the B league gets to pick from the 7th-place finisher in the A league's roster, 2nd picks from 8th, and so on.

Then, in the B league, the 7th-place finisher from the A league picks from the 1st-place finisher's roster, etc.
