fantasy baseball keeper leagues.
INTRODUCTION: Fantasy Sports R Us hosts high payout head to head fantasy baseball keeper leagues with three different type of drafts: A standard snake draft, an extended snake draft, and an auction draft.
STANDARD DRAFT: Snake drafts are standard for the site and should be assumed if the site does not specifically note them as AUCTION or EXTENDED. Standard new league drafts are "all in one day" and normally take 2 1/2 to 4 hours. New league drafts are serpentine (1-14, 14-1, 1-14, etc.), and 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 he goes off the roster board and on your team. All our new and established League Draft Dates are always listed right on the site. A new league draft order is issued utilizing CBS sports commissioners Random Draft Order Generator.
Each player 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, it will use its own rankings. New league drafts are done all in one day and usually take about 3 hours.
AUCTION DRAFT: Unless a league is clearly marked "AUCTION DRAFT" it can be assumed that it is a standard snake draft. In an auction draft league, each team begins with $270 to fill a 29 player roster, the final two players are added during free agency. Once the draft begins, player bids will be taken in $1 increments with a minimum bid of $1. In the following years, you can keep as many as you wish on your roster at an annual player salary increase of $3. Undrafted players are issued a default salary of $4. These drafts are done utilizing CBS Sports top of the industry auction software. It is the closest thing to an in-person auction draft. Your gonna love it!!! Once the draft is over, there is a $320 salary cap on teams.
EXTENDED DRAFT: Unless a league is clearly marked "EXTENDED DRAFT" it can be assumed that it is a standard snake draft. In an extended league draft, 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. An extended draft normally takes 10 to 14 days.
TWO GAME Rules: Unless a league is clearly marked "Two Game" it can be assumed that it is a single head to head matchup each week. In essence, the 23 week regular season becomes a 46 game schedule. In the playoffs, each team plays only one competitor to move on to the next round.
KEEPER LEAGUE DRAFTS: Beginning in year two, team owners protect 12 players and a 15 round non-serpentine (i.e. 14-1, 14-1) supplemental draft will be held annually based on the reverse standings of the previous year. The final three players are added via free agency to complete your 30 player roster. Keeper leagues run in 5 year intervals. Free agents begin immediately following the draft.
There will be no keepers in a redraft year as all players are available. We believe drafting a team from scratch is an integral part of the fantasy baseball experience. Each established leagues redraft year is listed Fantasy Baseball League Winners page. At the end of the 5 year span, the league will draft in random order using the sites automated random drawing software.
TRADING THROUGH THE OFF SEASON: Once the Major League Baseball season ends, if your keeper 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.
FANTASY BASEBALL TEAMS: Mixed (AL/NL) Head-To-Head Leagues will have 10. 12 or 14 teams. Each team will each have 30 players (22 active per week):
