What is Rotobowl? Rotobowl is fantasy football contest comprised of individual leagues of 12. The best teams from each league will compete in weeks 14-16 to be crowned Rotobowl Champion and Grand Prize Winner. It's Fantasy Football like you've always played it, except there's NO TRADING in Rotobowl! No trading, no way! Not at this level of competition. The team you draft and the players you acquire through weekly free agency is the team you go to battle with.
Rotobowl uses the Official World Championship Starting Lineups and Scoring.
It's a 20 Round Draft with 20 man Rosters.
Scoring? A deeper look at scoring can be found here, but it's traditional PPR (Point per Reception). 4 pts per QB passing TD, all other TDs are 6 points.
Starting Lineups? 1QB 2RB 3WR 1TE 1PK 1DST and 2FLEX (RB, WR, TE) - You start 11 every week. This rewards those skilled owners who have a deep roster. No longer will you leave points on the bench while your opponent gets lucky. The better team should win each week.
Waivers: We use Blind Bidding each week to determine who receives the hot free agents. No longer will your buddy sit around the computer and scoop up the best players before you get home from work. Every team is given $1,000 bid bucks. (imaginary money) From Kickoff Sunday until Wednesday at 9pm EDT, you can enter and edit your blind bids for any available free agent. On Wednesday night at 9pm EDT, come back to the site to see who you've won. There is also a second waiver run on Friday nights at 9pm EDT in case you didn't win that backup kicker you needed.
