The maximum number of draft picks (after initial draft) is 20. If you make trades that land you more than 20 picks you will receive your highest 20 selections. All others will be forfeited.

Trading is open and every player that is currently on your roster is in fact on your roster, meaning you have the rights to move them for players or future picks. This opens up the possibility of still getting something in return for a player that you may be looking to release to get down to the 22 man roster or potentially get up to the 22 man limit ahead of free agency.

Initial Draft and Yearly Draft Rules

The initial draft will consist of 30 draft picks and will be a 'snake' style draft.

During the month of March you must cut your roster down to 22. If you have players on injured reserve they must be brought onto the active roster, meaning 2 players from the active roster will need to be cut to make space or else these players will become part of the active free agent pool.

Every draft thereafter will consist of 8 draft picks and will be a 'non-snake' style. Your number of picks will be set at 8 though you may trade picks for picks, picks for players or picks for players and picks. Prior to the draft your max roster availability is 22. At the end of the draft your max roster availability is 40. If you make trades prior to the draft that will push your roster over the 40 player max you have until the Thursday following the draft to cut players from your roster to bring your franchise within the 40 player limit. If you have less than 40 you may sign free agents to bring you up to 40 or you may continue on with less than 40. You have until the Monday of the third week of the preseason to make roster cuts to bring your roster down to 22 with 2 players designated to injured reserve if they meet the requirements.

The draft goes from worst to first (does not snake) and the previous seasons standings are set as follows -
Non-playoff teams are all in the top half of the round (1-5) and are based upon record followed by tiebreakers.
Playoff teams are all in the bottom half of the round (6-10) and based upon elimination followed by record followed by tiebreakers.

Trading of picks for players, players for players and picks for picks will continue throughout the off-season, including during the draft.

The draft will always be held in July.

All available free agents including the most recent draft class are eligible to be drafted.

Trading, Free Agency and Waiver Wire

Deadlines for the 2017 season -

Add/Drop Deadline
    Start of the first game in week 17
Trading Deadline
    The Tuesday of week 11 11:30pm EST

The Waiver Wire works in reverse order of the current standings. It is a 2 day waiver wire.

Trades are to be approved by the commissioners. Courtesy trading and bye week help in the form of two teams making a transaction at one point in the year then returning those players at another point is not allowed.

Conditional Trading
Trading players for conditional picks is allowed and the guidelines can be determined by the individual parties. If a player is traded for a conditional pick that the owner trading the pick no longer possesses, it will be replaced by the next pick in reverse order (higher pick).

Examples -
Team A trades RB Bob to Team B for their 3rd round pick with a condition set that if Bob rushes for over 1,500 yards it becomes a 2nd round selection. Team B trades away their second round pick in another transaction. Bob rushes for 1,501 yards. Being that team B no longer possesses their original 2nd round pick they must give up the immediate higher pick. Team B does not possess another 2nd round pick so they must give up their first round selection.

Team C trades WR Mike to Team D for their 3rd round pick with a condition set that if Mike does not catch MORE than 4 touchdowns it becomes a 4th round selection. Team D then trades away their 4th round pick in another transaction that nets them a higher selection in the 4th round. Mike only makes 3 TD receptions, but since Team D no longer possesses their original 4th round pick they must give up the newly acquired 4th round selection being that it is their next highest draft slot they possess.
