Description

Dynasty League Structure:

  • League Size and Duration: Leagues will initially consist of 12 teams and will last a total of 5 years.
  • Yearly Elimination: At the end of each season, the bottom two teams will be ELIMINATED from the league. All teams that have not been eliminated will buy back into the league for the following season. All players from eliminated teams will remain frozen through the duration of the league’s existence. Total team points, not win/loss record, is the final decider of who gets eliminated from the league after Week 17. Win/Loss has no meaning and the two teams at the end of the season with the lowest amount of points scored will be eliminated from the league.
  • Yearly Payouts and Pooling (detailed further below):
    • For the first 5 years, the player who finishes in 1st place will receive their buy-in amount as a pay-out prize.
    • The remaining amount of the league buy-ins (minus a small Dynasty Nerds management fee, explained below) will roll over into the total prize pool for the final year 5 payouts (as explained further below).
  • Roster: Teams will consist of 25-man rosters with 8 active spots and 17 bench spots. These are dynasty rosters and all 25 players will carry over every year. The active roster details are set out below.
  • PPR Scoring: PPR Scoring with details set out below. There will be fractional points scoring in order to help prevent ties. In the case of a tie, total team touchdowns will be the first tiebreaker.
  • Season Schedule/Standing
  • No Trades or Waivers: There are no trades or waiver wire pick-ups; you are stuck with the team you draft. The only way to change your roster will be through the rookie draft. If you make any transaction your team will be eliminated from the tournament and you will not be issued a refund.
  • Rookie Drafts (detailed further below):
    • Rookie drafts will be held in years 2 – 5 and consist of 4 rounds each year. The initial start-up draft will consist of both rookies and veteran players.
    • There will be no taxi squads, and teams will have to cut players off your roster in order to draft rookies so that teams always have 25 maximum players.
    • Teams can choose to draft anywhere from 0 to 4 rookies per year (see more about the draft below).
  • Buy In Amounts: Leagues buy-ins will consist of $10, $20, $50, and $100 per season, with dues owed annually by August.
  • League Disputes: All disputes between teams will be resolved by Dynasty Nerds in its sole discretion, and any decisions will be final and binding.

 

Elimination and Payouts Schedule:

  • Year 1: Teams finishing the season in 11th and 12th place are eliminated. The winner of the league receives their current year’s buy-in amount back. Dynasty Nerds will take one buy-in as a management fee. The remaining pot rolls over.
  • Year 2: Teams finishing the season in 9th and 10th place are eliminated. The year 2 winner of the league receives their current year’s buy-in amount back. Dynasty Nerds will take 50% of one buy-in as a management fee. The remaining pot rolls over.
  • Year 3: Teams finishing the season in 7th and 8th place are eliminated. The year 3 winner of the league receives their current year’s buy-in amount back. Dynasty Nerds will take 50% of one buy-in as a management fee. The remaining pot rolls over.
  • Year 4: Teams finishing the season in 5th and 6th place are eliminated. The year 4 winner of the league receives their current year’s buy-in amount back. Dynasty Nerds will take $10 as a management fee. The remaining pot rolls over.
  • Year 5 (the final season): The final four buy into the league and there is a $10 management fee. The final four players play for the entire tolled pot. The 1st place winner will receive 80% of the pot, and the 2nd winner will receive 20% of the pot.

 

$100 example:

  • Year 1: 12 players buy in for $100 for a total of $1200. Subtracting out the 1st place winner’s buy-in reimbursement of $100 and the Dynasty Nerds management fee of $100, leaves $1000 to roll into the final pot.
  • Year 2: 10 players buy in for $100 for a total of $1000. Subtracting out the 1st  place winner’s buy-in reimbursement of $100 and the Dynasty Nerds management fee of $50, leaves $850 to roll into the final pot. Making the year 2 total pot $1850.
  • Year 3: 8 players buy in for $100 for a total of $800. Subtracting out the 1st  place winner’s buy-in reimbursement of $100 and the Dynasty Nerds management fee of $50, leaves $650 to roll into the final pot. Making the year 3 total pot $2500.
  • Year 4: 6 players buy in for $100 for a total of $600. Subtracting out the 1st  place winner’s buy-in reimbursement of $100 and the Dynasty Nerds management fee of $10, leaves $490 to roll into the final pot. Making the year 4 total pot $2990.
  • Year 5: The final 4 players buy in for $100 for a total of $400. Subtracting out the 1st  place winner’s buy-in reimbursement of $100 and the Dynasty Nerds management fee of $10, leaves $290 to roll into the final pot. Making the year 5 total pot $3280. The top two finishers will win the their share of the final pot. First place winner receives $2624 and the second place winner receives $656.

*If you win all five years you free rolled to $2624!

Rookie Draft:

  • After the conclusion of each season, there will be a 4 round rookie draft.
  • The remaining team that finished lowest in the prior year’s standings having the first pick in the draft. The draft order will be lowest in the standings to first every year and it will not be a snake draft. The person with the first pick will also own 2.01, 3.01 and 4.01.
  • The draft will be held via an email chain following the NFL Draft.
  • There is no trading ever allowed in the league. This includes draft picks.
  • To draft a player you must cut a player so that you always have a maximum of 25 players. This year, for example, the person could write in their email “I select Saquon Barkley and cut Josh Gordon.”  If you choose to not cut anyone off of your roster, you would just write, “forfeit the pick” in your email, and the next person would be on the clock.
  • At the conclusion of the rookie draft, each team will have their teams for the next season regardless of any events to transpire until then. If you have a player that gets hurt, holds out or gets suspended, that just stinks for you, and hopefully, your depth is as strong as the force.
