Rules
  • All the rules from the other leagues.... you know the drill

Clock will start September 25th 12pm PT and is a 12 hour clock.

Spoiler:
Image


The lottery will is split into 4 tiers. 1-4, 5-8, 9-12, 13-16. Each of those tiers will have a mini lottery to determine the order for that tier. Each person in the tier will have a 25% chance of the top pick in the tier.

Inactivity rule - applies for the 2018/19 lottery and beyond
In the event that a player is 27 games or more short of maxing their games played (3 games per position) they will be demoted to the next lowest lottery tier. The highest seeded player from the lower tier will be promoted in their place.

Injured Keepers Exception
Players can apply for an injury exception. This exception waives the lottery tier penalty for not meeting the games played in a season. You should only apply if you feel that you have been unable to meet the games played threshold due to long term injuries to keeper players. Your 2 IR spots are able to completely cover 2 long term injuries to keepers. Don't come asking for an exception unless you're using the IR spots properly.

To apply: just post in this thread.

Once you have applied, I will review the GP and injuries to your team to determine whether or not to grant the waiver. If successful, I will post in here to notify the league. The league then have a week to post any objections to the granted waiver.

I'm ready to start the draft but am trying to add everyone's suggestions into my original idea. But since we need to iron out future draft rules before starting, and new ideas keep getting thrown out, it delays it.

So the current hold ups seem to be kenny/Phystic don't want any lottery/random determination in future years, and MrMiyagi wants 41 games instead of 25 as the cut off for being penalized two draft spots.

I guess we keep the discussion going.

Also, one thing about the two spots we'd need to decide is if say, 5 teams make the lottery next year, because the Suns win 32 games, does the 2 spot penalty happen pre lottery? Or post lottery?

If you squeeze in 5th worst because of not having played games, it seems like you probably shouldn't get to be in the lottery. Originally I was thinking the penalty would happen post lottery; because if you got penalized two games for inactivity pre-lottery and still made the lottery cut off, and didn't get penalized post lottery, then you could have inactivity and still win the lottery.

I guess the easiest answer is you get a penalty pre and post. It would only matter pre lottery if it pushed you outside of the cutoff. If you remained in the lottery even after the penalty, you still should receive it post lottery because you could win.

Although I like the idea of the random determination of teams that could theoretically get the first pick, I just thought of one other alternative.

In this scenario we have 4 lotteries, one for 13-16, one for 9-12, one for 5-8, and one for 1-4.

That way there are no predetermined spots.

However, if you don't meet the activeness level of somewhere between playing between 25 and 41 games of the max, you get a 4 spot penalty, basically meaning you move down a whole draft tier. And someone could get lucky, because if they were sitting at the 5th worst spot (2nd tier), and say the third worst team didn't play within a certain number of games of the max, they would move down to 7, moving everyone up one spot, the 5th worst team would suddenly move to 4 and have the chance at the #1 pick.

I'm ready to get it going, and keep altering my original idea to try and appease everyone. I think most were ok with the last, but we have a few that would rather not have future lotteries it sounds, even though I think the majority are good with it. So I tried to come up with more new ideas in posts 644 and 645, but the last idea and comments prior to that start here.... viewtopic.php?f=27&t=1481978&start=620#p58827530

So even after we do reverse draft of standings this year, you want to do that every year regardless? I think ultimately that will make the league less competitive.


Yeah, I'd keep it simple. Reverse order but you still need to max out your games to keep it fair.

I personally think that if we are keeping tanking under control then there is no need for a lottery. The worst teams get top picks which in theory should help keep the league level. In theory. I just don't like the idea of a playoff team landing a top pick and the worst team in the league getting a mid round pick. And this isn't just because I'm the worst team in the league :lol:. Of course all the top teams are down for a lottery, it benefits them.

With all that said, if the league wants to do that starting next draft then I'm fine even if that does sort of mess with my... process/timeline :D .

As for when the penalty should be implemented. I say pre-lottery. If that keeps them in the lottery then oh well. I don't think it's fair to screw them over multiple times by doing pre AND post lottery.

I like this idea MUCH better than the other. This at least ensures the quality of the teams stays within their bracket(unless multiple teams miss the games play cutoff). That way a playoff team can't land a top 3 pick.

Well there are no playoff teams and the lottery under my initial plan would have probably normally be only the bottom half or less, but perhaps a couple more teams at times.

I think with the penalty, even though it might happen twice, ultimately would only get penalized once. Pre lottery they only get penalized if they get knocked out of lottery due to moving down. In that scenario, that's their only penalty. If someone moves down pre lottery and still stays in lottery, they could still end up with #1 pick even though they fell way short on games. So their only real penalty would be post lottery where they move down from 1 to 3.

Re: Fantasy Leagues Discussion - Currently Dynasty Future Drafts

Like the tier lottery idea. Avoids top teams becoming even stronger by luck, which ruins the season for everyone else, yet keeps the fun of lottery randomness with something at stake.

So the current hold ups seem to be kenny/Phystic don't want any lottery/random determination in future years, and MrMiyagi wants 41 games instead of 25 as the cut off for being penalized two draft spots.

I guess we keep the discussion going.

Also, one thing about the two spots we'd need to decide is if say, 5 teams make the lottery next year, because the Suns win 32 games, does the 2 spot penalty happen pre lottery? Or post lottery?

If you squeeze in 5th worst because of not having played games, it seems like you probably shouldn't get to be in the lottery. Originally I was thinking the penalty would happen post lottery; because if you got penalized two games for inactivity pre-lottery and still made the lottery cut off, and didn't get penalized post lottery, then you could have inactivity and still win the lottery.

I guess the easiest answer is you get a penalty pre and post. It would only matter pre lottery if it pushed you outside of the cutoff. If you remained in the lottery even after the penalty, you still should receive it post lottery because you could win.


To clarify, I absolutely think anything but a reverse snake draft THIS draft is completely unfair. I don't necessarily agree with having a lottery moving forward as I think a reverse draft can keep things more balanced if tanking can be controlled(which is a part of this discussion).

I personally think that if we are keeping tanking under control then there is no need for a lottery. The worst teams get top picks which in theory should help keep the league level. In theory. I just don't like the idea of a playoff team landing a top pick and the worst team in the league getting a mid round pick. And this isn't just because I'm the worst team in the league :lol:. Of course all the top teams are down for a lottery, it benefits them.

With all that said, if the league wants to do that starting next draft then I'm fine even if that does sort of mess with my... process/timeline :D .

As for when the penalty should be implemented. I say pre-lottery. If that keeps them in the lottery then oh well. I don't think it's fair to screw them over multiple times by doing pre AND post lottery.


Well there are no playoff teams and the lottery under my initial plan would have probably normally be only the bottom half or less, but perhaps a couple more teams at times.

I think with the penalty, even though it might happen twice, ultimately would only get penalized once. Pre lottery they only get penalized if they get knocked out of lottery due to moving down. In that scenario, that's their only penalty. If someone moves down pre lottery and still stays in lottery, they could still end up with #1 pick even though they fell way short on games. So their only real penalty would be post lottery where they move down from 1 to 3.



My bad on two counts:

1. Too many leagues(and too mean beers), change playoff team to top teams. And my point is somewhat valid :)
2. Fair enough I think I misunderstood your original idea as well as got confused as I thought it was mentioned somewhere that we were doing a weighted lottery. So many ideas, I got mixed up.


But all of that is void, because I do like the tiered lottery and I think that is a great middle ground for everyone.

I thought it was determined this draft was going to be reverse draft order, and this tier system was for next draft?
