    [h]Rules [/h]
    Fantasy leagues are meant to be fun, and by no means do we want to take the fun out of playing fantasy football. At the same time, there needs to be a mutual respect between all league members. Verbal harassment of fellow owners will be looked upon negatively and can lead to expulsion without reimbursement of league dues. There is a huge difference between friendly interplay "Junk talking" and harassment. I do support and encourage interplay but there is a line that should not be crossed.

    1.2 This league will start in the 2017 off season.

    4.7 If an owner fails to submit a draft pick for a second time, that owner will be placed on a 4 hour timer until they make a pick.
    4.9 The rookie drafts which will begin in 2018 and will occur every year afterward will start the Friday after the NFL draft. The draft will proceed in reverse order (For all rounds) based on the previous season's finish (total points as tie-breaker). The reverse order for all non playoff teams will be based upon final regular season standings. Playoff teams will be seeded according to reverse order of result in the playoffs
    4.10.2 The draft will last 7 rounds.
    4.11 You may draft rookies , free agents or devy players,
    4.12 There may be a maxium of 60 devy players in league at any time. Once that 60 is met, no more devy/college players may be selected. ..there will be a maximum of 60 devy players in the league at any time ie. in 2018 if 10 devy players transition to the nfl then there will only be 10 devy players available to be selected in the 2018 rookie devy draft as soon as the league has 60 devy players in the league only waiver wire and rookies can be drafted
    The definition of a college player: A college player is any player who is presently enrolled at a college who has not declared for the NFL draft. A player in high school who has signed a letter of intent but is NOT enrolled in school can not be drafted.
    4.13 The draft will be conducted on fleaflicker.com. (unless league decides to do offline at later date).Trading of draft selections is permitted prior to and during the draft
    4.14 Each team will have 8 hours to make their draft selection.
    4.15 If an owner fails to submit a draft pick within his/her allocated time, the commissioner will select the highest available player on fleaflicker.com that can be a rookie or free agent.
    4.16 If an owner fails to submit a draft pick for a second time, that owner will be place on a 4 hour timer until they make a pick.
    4.17 If an owner withdraws from the league during the draft, the draft will stop till a new owner is found and begin when the new owner is selected without penalizing the new team.

    Rosters
    5.0 Each franchise will maintain an in-season active roster with a maximum of 25 players, 5 taxi players, and2 IR spots to be used for players put on the IR by their NFL teams.
    5.1 taxi squad is limited to rookies only
    5.2 If a rookie is on an active roster at any time after the start of week 1 they lose taxi squad eligibility.
    5.3 Only rookies that are drafted in initial draft or subsequent rookie drafts are eligible for taxi squad. (i.e. players picked up off waivers are not eligible)
    5.4 If a player is on a taxi squad and is traded they will still have taxi squad eligibility, the owner who receives the player has until the next week to place that player on taxi squad or it will be considered on an active roster and no longer be eligible.
    5.5 It is the owners decision on how many players to carry at each position.
    5.6 During the off-season, you may have a roster maximum of 35 players. Once the season ends, players on IRmust be placed on the active roster. If you have draft picks that would put you over this number you must drop someone to make room or forfeit the draft pick.
    5.7 You should be able to go over roster maximums. This way, if you make a 4 for 1 trade, it will go through. Each team will have until kickoff of the 1st game of the week to get down to the limits. If a trade is made after the 1st game, you will have to cut down to30 before kickoff of the next game. So, if there's a Thursday game, and you make a trade on Friday, you have to cut down before Sunday's kickoff. If a deal is made on a Sunday(after kickoff), you will have until kickoff of the next week's games.Any trade made after Sunday's kickoff, you will have until the following week's kickoff to cut down to limit.
    However, you can not go over the limit(s) by picking up free agents.If you pick someone up that puts you over 30, you MUST cut a player. Failure to comply may result in the commissioner cutting a player from your team.
    5.8 You can have up to 5 devy players with no consequences to your active roster limit.. after 5 devy you must forfeit a roster spot to have more.. for example you make some trades and end up with 8 devy selections.. you then only have 2 rookie taxi squad slots instead of 5.. if you end up with more than 10 devy players then you begin losing your 30 active roster spots...

    Weekly Line-Ups
    7.1 Each franchise may start10 players each week.
    7.2 The starting lineup will consist of 1 QB, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 TEs, 2 Flex (RB,WR,TE), 1 Superflex (QB,RB,WR,TE)
    7.3 The deadline for naming starters is set by fleaflicker rules, but generally a player is locked approximately 5 minutes before kick-off.
    7.4 If no starters are named, the previous week's starters will be used (regardless if the players are active that week or not).
    7.5 Starting line up requirements in regards to rosters only must be adhered to during the regular season. It is required to be able to fulfill the league's starting line up requirements from the NFL final cut down day until our league champion is crowned.

    [h]Start Up and Developmental Draft[/h]

    Startup Draft
    Startup will include nfl player pool, and all incoming rookies. The draft order will be randomized by the fleaflicker site. Draft will be completed in email ?slow? draft format through fleaflicker. Once on the clock each owner will have 8 hours to make their draft selection. If no pick is made in that time the commissioner will select the highest available ADP player regardless of position. The draft timer will be ?off? during the hours of 10 pm ? 8 am EST. You may make picks during this time, but your timer is ?paused? during these hours (example the pick before you is made at 8 pm EST, you are on the clock. You have until 2 pm the next day to make a pick)Draft will consist of 30 rounds. You may trade these picks, previously drafted players, initial devy draft picks or future ?rookie draft? picks during the draft.

    Intitial Devy Draft
    After the conclusion of the startup draft.will have a 5 round devy draft. Devy draft order will be reverse order of the start up draft. The draft will be done via some sort of chat, message board etc. and a corresponding google doc that will be accessible in view only mode to all owners. These picks are available for trade, however there is no way to do it on the site. If you wish to trade these initial picks you need to get it in writing from both involved owners either via text, via comments on trade site with other players/picks, message site etc. There must be a clear offer and clear acceptance that you are trading these picks. I will then update the google doc with the traded picks. This also needs to be ?time stamped? or sent to me prior to and at the same time as the rest of trade goes through on the site.
    This is only an issue for the initial devy draft as going forward devy players will be selected in the same draft as rookies.
