Head to Head Fantasy Baseball
No Transaction Fees Ever
HEAD TO HEAD FANTASY BASEBALL INTRODUCTION: If this is the first time you are getting involved in a live draft fantasy baseball league get ready for something you will never forget. An opportunity to meet many new friends and do something you will enjoy year after year.
LEAGUE SNAKE DRAFT: All our new and established League Draft Date are always listed right on the site. League drafts are held in your leagues personal website using top of the industry draft software. You only click the player, click the position you are putting him at and hes off the roster board and on your team. During a new or supplemental draft, each team owner will have 120 seconds to make a draft pick and a draft robot will be in use. The draft robot will automatically make a pick for an owner who does not submit a pick before the time limit expires. The draft robot picks the top player listed in the owners draft queue- or the rank list, if the owner has not put players in the queue.
New leagues have serpentine drafts (i.e. 1-14, 14-1, 1-14, etc).
In supplemental drafts, draft order is non-serpentine and utilizes the opposite of last years regular season standings (i.e. 14-1, 14-1, 14-1, etc).
ESTABLISHED LEAGUE DRAFTS: In established keeper leagues, beginning in year two, you will protect 12 players and team owners will have a 15 round non-serpentine supplemental draft (i.e. 14-1, 14-1, 14-1, etc) to complete their 27 player rosters. So if you won first place in the regular season, you would have the last draft position each round. Supplemental drafts are held utilizing automated draft software.
Every 5 years a league will redraft from scratch and all players will be available. Regular Season Winners and World Series Champions are returning participants. Each established leagues redraft year is listed on the League Winners page.
EXTENDED LEAGUE DRAFTS: Unless a league is clearly marked "Extended League Draft" it can be assumed that it is "all in one day." Beginning in 2012, FSRU will begin rolling out extended league snake drafts in head to head fantasy baseball. Each team owner will have 6 hours to make a pick. The clock will be off from 12am (midnight) to 6am. The draft robot will automatically make a pick for an owner who does not submit a pick before the time limit expires. If an owner is not going to be available to make a pick, it is recommended he queue his player choices and turn on auto draft so as to not hold up his choice till the clock runs out. In the unlikely event that this leagues draft is not on target for completion by season start, the commissioner reserves the right to decrease the clock time between picks to ensure draft completion in a timely manner.
HEAD TO HEAD KEEPER LEAGUE OFF SEASON: Once the Major League Baseball season ends and your team is paid for the following season, you can trade with other teams paid for the next season throughout the off-season. So our team owners can trade all year long. Supplemental round draft picks cannot be traded.
