FREE AGENCY

Each team can protect up to 5 players by signing them in the offseason
(including practice squad players)

This is the 1st cost of the next season's salary cap

Player re-signing fees cost a team part of their salary
*pretty sure this is where blood bowl got their redraft idea!




Subsequent seasons will have 7 round drafts consisting of a combination of new rookie players, and those players that couldn’t be re-signed and protected from hitting the free agency market.

PRACTICE SQUAD

You may have a roster of up to 16 players, up to 4 of those players may be designated as "practice squad" Those players are removed from the UDFA eligibility list, and are part of your team, but are not part of your game time roster (TV) and you DO NOT hire them.

You may call a player up to your team roster at any time there is an open spot, but they can NOT be sent back to the practice squad once activated.
They have a good union

e.g. A team with 4 blitzers, 3 healthy and 1 MNG would NOT be able to activate a practice quad blitzer without releasing one of their current rostered blitzers.
(Your team may not rehire that player until other teams have a chance to pick them up)
DRAFT INFORMATION

Link to Draft Page

UDFA Process
*When a player is offered a contract by multiple teams priority is invoked.

Teams with the worst record = Priority
1st tie = Lowest TV & practice squad & MNG
2nd tiebreaker = First submitted request


Teams will be granted their 1st pick so long as another team has not been given that player on priority. After each player is given priority is re-evaluated until all requested Free Agents have been assigned. We will do our best to be fair and keep things moving.

Tie Breakers

1st - Head to Head
2nd - Div Record (in-div) / Conf Rec. (non-div)
3rd - Conf Record (in-div) / Div Rec. (in-div)
4th - TD Differential
5th - Cas Differential
6th - Whiskey to fitz (I'm serious about this!)
7th - you didn’t send whiskey? Dice roll

In case of 3 way tie, all pairs will be compared

In case of a single winner they will be highest seed and the other will go to tiebreakers

In case of a single loser loses the other two will go to tiebreakers for highest seed

Free Agency Costs

These are in addition to the players base cost
0-16 games = 10% of TV (80k*.1 = extra agent cost of 8k)
17-32 games = 20% of TV (80*.2 = extra agent 16k)
23-48 games = 30% of TV (80*.3 = extra agent 24k)
49-64 games = 40% of TV (80*.4 = extra agent 32k)
65+ games = 50% of TV (80*.5 = extra agent 40k)
-5% extra cost/permanent injury

eg. 12 game 135k -ma, -av player +10%, -5%, -5%
has no additional cost to re-sign, resign 135 TV

eg. 30 game 180k player +20%
Costs 180k with additional 36k in agency fees


Yes player with Superbowls may demand a bit more

FDL Star Players are custom and may die/retire.

As our players become too expensive
they will become the future League Star Players
