For Full-Season Leagues, you have until that player's scheduled game time to submit the player to your lineup.For Draft-Only leagues, lineups are optimized AFTER all the games are played each week.

QB SuperFlex Leagues

The only difference is you can start a QB in the Flex position, so (QB-RB-WR-TE) are all acceptable positions at the flex. It really drives the QB position up in the draft!

Starter Leagues vs our other High Stakes Leagues:

DRAFT:

All leagues will hold their Draft ONLINE prior to September 9, 2017. Each league will be composed of 12 teams, and each draft will last for 18 rounds for Full Season Leagues and 24 rounds for Draft Only Leagues, with each team selecting a player in each round in a serpentine fashion (team 1 through team 12, team 12 through team 1, team 1 through team 12, etc.). There are no rules governing the number of players to be drafted at each position. It is up to the skill and draft strategy of each team owner to decide.

ONLINE TIMER RULES: In the event the participant's timer expires in an online draft, the computer will select a player based on the rules specified below:

1. There is no limit to the number of players a contestant may put in their "queue list". They can add every undrafted player to the "queue list" in any order they see fit.

2. If the contestant "queue list" is exhausted, and the contestant timer expires, our algorithm will look for any starting lineup position still of need, and select the highest ranked remaining available player, excluding kicker or defense positions.

2a. For example, if the contestant still needs a QB, RB and 3 wide receivers to fill their starting lineup, the algorithm will choose the highest ranked player at one of those three positions and select the player for the contestant.

3. If the "queue list" is exhausted, and the contestant timer expires, and the contestant has filled their starting lineup requirement, the algorithm will choose the highest ranked player regardless of position, excluding kicker or defense.

4. Once the draft reaches Round 15, the positions of kickers and defenses are eligible to be considered as auto picks, in the event a contestant timer expires.

SLOW DRAFTS: Will have a 6 hour timer that extends from 1am to 7am eastern without penalty (so you don't time out overnight). Missing a pick in a slow draft will result in the highest ranked "Queue List" player. Once that is exhausted, the software rankings will be used in the same manner as described above.

Playoff Rules:

Waivers: (for Full-Season Leagues only)

Free Agent Acquisition Bidding - This isn't your home league where your buddy hears big news on a player and scoops them up off the waiver wire before you get home from work. The Scout Fantasy format employs something called FAAB. It stands for Free Agent Acquisition Bidding.

Each week your first opportunity to add players to your team is Wed night at 9pm. You are given $1,000 "BID BUCKS" (these are fake dollars) to last you the whole entire year. Run out, and you're done adding free agents on Wednesday nights, so spend it wisely. Weekly bids can range from $1 to $1,000. When some unknown RB breaks out after week one for 80 and 2 Touchdowns, you have to decide how much he's worth to your team and bid accordingly.

On Wednesday at 9pm EDT, "waivers run" and you will find out the results. If you didn't get the guys you wanted, first come first served waivers begin immediately following blind bidding players awarded. We will release a few video tutorials this year that help explain this so you can master your weekly Blind Bidding opportunities.Players dropped on Wednesday night are not available via first come first serve waivers utnil the following blind bidding.
Wednesdays: Open to all available free agent players.

PLEASE NOTE: All drafts (non World Championship Leagues) concluded before or on Thursday August 31, 2017 will have 1 opportunity to add/remove players via our Free Agent Acquisition Bidding (FAAB) waivers, on the Friday before Week 1, September 1, 2017 at 9pm EDT. All other leagues drafted or finishing after September 1, will have their first waiver period after Week 1 on Wednesday, September 13, 2017.
