Ten teams compete in a standard scoring format with team defenses. All touchdowns are with six points, as opposed to four points for passing touchdowns. Return yards are counted for special teams, but are not in effect for defenses.
This league is setup for players who wish to get their feet wet with fantasy. While we don’t mind players returning to this league, it is first come first serve and we won’t open a second league unless there is an overwhelming call for it. Generally players will move up to an Intermediate League after a year at this level.
League Capacity Updated 7/27 (10 of 10 teams) ***The League Is Full Please Consider Intermediate Non IDP League***
Intermediate IDP League
This is our “Mega-league”, it consists of two 12-team leagues. Regular season works the same as any league, as well as most of the playoffs. The change comes in the Championship game, where both finalists are paired with the finalists of the opposing league. So that is four players fighting for the championship of their respective leagues, but also to be crowned “Super Bowl Champion”.
“Super Bowl Champion” is the league winner with the most points scored. This player wins the 1st place prize. Second place goes to the champion of the opposing league. Third place goes to the losing finalist who scored the most points. So to win money in the Intermediate League you must make it to the finals in week 15, and not have the lowest score of the three other finalists.
The Intermediate League has full point per reception scoring, and individual defensive players. All touchdowns are six points, and return yards are counted for both special teams and individual defensive players.
Both 12-team leagues are divided up into four divisions. Division winners are invited to participate in Champions League the next year.
League Capacity Updated 8/15 (**FULL**) ***The League Is Full Please Consider Intermediate Non IDP League***
Non-IDP Intermediate League
Refer to the above description, but without IDP or return yards on defense. There is currently no plan to invite players from this league to a Champions League, if you wish to make it to that level consider the regular Intermediate League.
League Capacity Updated 8/15 (**8 spots left**)
Set up similar to the Intermediate “Mega-League”, Champions league is nearly identical except for being made of two eight-team leagues. So there is a better chance of making it to the finals and a bigger pot to win. Of course with the easier stakes, there is a chance of not being invited back: only the top four teams from each eight-team league retains their invite. The bottom four move back to the intermediate leagues the following year.
Those who get an invite to the Champions League are invited to have a second team in the intermediate league. Though only one team can be in Champions League at any time, so if your second team qualifies they won’t be invited to Champions League. Though if your Champions League team falls to the Intermediate League, you can retain your invite if you qualify in the Intermediate League for that year.
