Masters Fantasy Football Money Leagues - Dynasty League Rules

What is a Dynasty League?

A dynasty style fantasy football league is a league where you retain most or all of your players from year to year. This creates an environment which is very different from that of a redraft league. By enabling team owners to keep players and build a team over time, there is a much stronger sense of team ownership, and success is achieved with a greater sense of satisfaction.

A dynasty league is for those owners who want the "real" GM experience. Mistakes or successes in a dynasty league can affect the future of a franchise for years to come - just like in the NFL. A sharp owner through trading and judicious use of the waiver wire can build a dominant team for years to come (without having to start over each and every season).

When signing up for a Masters Dynasty Fantasy Football Money League you are making a commitment to be in an ongoing year-to-year league. You will be competing against the same 11 owners each year. In order to keep the league together and prevent teams from dropping out, we require an initial payment for year one AND a one-year deposit. Then moving forward, your annual renewal payment will be due by the second Sunday in May each year. Should an owner decide to leave the league, his team will be put up for sale and the owner will forfeit their deposit. If for whatever reason the league were not to fill you would receive a refund on your deposit.

You will receive an email with your exact start time and there will be a countdown clock on your league home page. It is your responsibility to be logged in and ready for your draft 15 minutes prior to the start time. If you do not make the live draft, the computer will draft your team for you using ADP (average draft position).

You will be REQUIRED to draft a complete starting lineup.

There is no trading during the draft. Please see “Trades".

In the event an owner allows the time limit to expire, the league software will immediately select the best player available and will continue to do so until you sign in.

After the first season there is an annual Rookie/Free Agent Draft. This draft is a 3 round Email Draft and will start in late July / early August (check league calendar for exact date and time). During the Rookie/Free Agent Draft rosters will be expanded to allow for draft picks. Prior to the start of the NFL season you must cut your roster back down to 21. See "Special Dynasty League Rules" at bottom of page for more details.

Player Eligibility: Only players currently in the NFL, which means they are on an NFL team roster, are currently a NFL free agent player in search of a team or rookie players that were drafted to an NFL team (even if they're unsigned) are eligible for the fantasy draft.

League Schedule

Teams start playing during week 1 of the NFL season. You play each team in your division twice and the 8 non-divisional teams once. The regular season lasts for 14 weeks; the playoffs begin in week 15 and the league Championship is in week 17.

If the NFL reschedules a game or games for ANY reason, the statistics from those games will count for the week in which the game is actually played. If this were to happen after the rosters lock at 1pm on Sunday, you would receive zero points for the players involved. If the game is cancelled for any reason, it will not count.

Reports

Each week, all of the information, such as standings, available free agents, weekly results, game-by-game breakdowns and more, is posted online on your league's web page. Starting lineups are posted BEFORE the games start.

Free Agents

All Masters Fantasy Football Money Leagues use a Blind Bidding system to acquire free agents.

There is only one period of waivers in the pre-season. Blind Bidding will start the Sunday before Labor Day. Bids will process that Wednesday night. First come – first served will run from Wednesday at 11pm until Sunday at 1pm.

Bids go in increments of $1. Bid Minimum is $0.

  • If you win the bid at $28, and the next highest bid was $19, you still pay $28 for your player.
  • If there is a tie bid, the player is awarded to the team with the earliest submitted bid.
  • Your top players bid at each position can exceed your total bidding bucks available. The computer will limit your second (or 3rd...) player's bid to the max bidding bucks available if your bids exceeded your available funds.
  • Note that if you wish to receive one player over another than it will be required that you submit a higher monetary bid on that player as there is no priority when submitting your bids.
  • You may bid $0 on a player. If no other owners submit a bid, you’ll receive the player.
  • Any time you edit your bids the system applies a new time stamp to the bid. Keep this in mind since ties are determined by the earliest submitted bid.

Any player not currently on an active league roster is a free agent (NFL players only).

If your team roster is full and you acquire a player, then you must drop a player. Players picked up are available immediately for that week's action or for trade to another team.

"Dropped Players" and "Waiver Wire Transactions" are final. That being said, from time-to-time owners accidentally drop players. The owner might confuse player's names or simply click the wrong button. When this happens, email us and we will correct it at our sole discretion. It is imperative that we are notified prior to the player going through Blind Bidding. If the player is awarded to another team during Blind Bidding it is final.

Dropped Players will not be available on Waivers until the next free agency period.

Blind Bidding will start in early August (check league calendar for exact dates). There will ONLY be one period of first come - first served claims in the pre-season. It will be the week before the season starts and will run from Wednesday at 11pm until Sunday at 1pm.

After the season ends – ALL free agents or non-roster players lock until after the Rookie/Free Agent Draft.

Scoring

Please see our "League Information" section for scoring rules.

Lineups

Owners must start 1 QB, 1 RB, 1WR, 1 TE, 1 Team Kicker, 1 Team Defense. Then any combination of 3 more RBs, WRs and TEs – for a TOTAL of 9 Starters.

Owners can set starting players up until each game time. Once a game has started, all players involved in that game are frozen as starters or bench players.

You May Not Submit a Partial Lineup.

Trading

There is no limit to the number of players a team can trade in a given week. Both teams need to give approval and list terms of the trade for it to be confirmed. Once approved by the league Commissioner, the trade will be official. Trade results will be posted on the website for each league. As a trade is approved, the team(s) rosters will automatically be updated and a transaction record will be listed. Trades must be completed and confirmed by both sides before 5pm Saturday each week.

There is no trading from 11pm August 31st until after the week 2 games. In addition, there is NO trading from the start of week 13 games until after the season.

There is no trading on Thursday from 6pm to 9pm ET. Thanksgiving week trading ends on Wednesday at 11pm ET and will re-open after kickoff of the Black Friday game. Any trade requiring an owner to renew will be automatically rejected at the 11pm ET deadline.

On the final day of trading in Dynasty Leagues, the deadline will be extended to 10pm ET.

Any trade that involves a future pick REQUIRES the team trading the pick to be renewed for the year of the pick they are trading. There will always be two years of draft picks available to trade. We add another year of picks after the Rookie/FA Draft. Any trade that takes place between week 12 and week 13 REQUIRES both teams to be renewed for the following season. Trading re-starts after week 16 and runs through the final day of the NFL Playoffs. Both teams must be renewed in order to complete a trade during this window.

If a trade is one-sided or collusion between owners is suspected, the trade will not be allowed.

All trades have to be balanced and may either be 1 for 1, 2 for 2 or 3 for 3. Any trades involving more than 6 players will be automatically rejected. Draft picks do NOT count as players and can be included in all trades.

Blind bidding dollars cannot be traded.

All transactions are final.

Playoffs

Divisional Standings: Will be sorted 1st by winning percentage, if needed then by divisional winning percentage, then by total Points For, then by total Points Against (if still tied then by a coin flip).

The divisional winners will then be seeded for the playoff bracket 1-3 1st by winning percentage, if needed then by total points (if still tied then by a coin flip).

Wildcard Spots: The best 4 teams of the remaining 9 will be the wildcard teams. They will be sorted by winning percentage, then by total Points For, then by total Points Against (if still tied then by a coin flip). Their playoff seeding will be 4-7.

The losers will play for 3rd place.

If a playoff game ends in a tie - the tie will be broken by the highest scoring starting player, then the 2nd highest scoring starting player etc. (DF/ST and Kickers are not used for tie breaker).

Playoff brackets are not re-seeded.

League Prizes

All prizes won are paid at the end of the season. Prize money will be deposited into your LeagueSafe account.

Additional

Any transaction that leaves a team without a complete starting lineup will NOT be processed.

Abandoned Teams: Masters Fantasy Football Money Leagues will run abandoned teams. They are not eligible to win any prize money. Masters Fantasy Football run teams are not dead teams. Masters Fantasy Football Money Leagues run teams function like any other team. What we feel is the best lineup will be used. These teams will only participate in waiver pickups in order to fill a starting lineup. Masters Fantasy Football Money Leagues run teams are not available to trade with.

Conduct: Conduct that is deemed detrimental to the league or to Masters Fantasy Football Money Leagues will not be tolerated. This includes, but is not limited to, posts and or emails that are harassing in nature and serve no legitimate purpose other than to cause discord within the league or the Masters Fantasy Football Money Leagues organization. There is a difference between expressing viewpoints or likes/dislikes of a league or format and personal attacks toward fellow owners or the commissioner. Also, vulgarity in emails or on the message board will not be tolerated.

Failure to comply may result in IMMEDIATE EXPULSION WITHOUT REFUND. In addition, attempts to negatively impact the integrity of the league (i.e. threatening or outright refusal to submit lineups, partaking in bogus trades, disruption of a live draft etc.) will result in an immediate expulsion, without refund, from Masters Fantasy Football Money Leagues.

Masters reserves the right to set your lineup for you if in our opinion you are intentionally trying to lose games.

If a player’s official position changes during the season (On official team site. Think Ty Montgomery 2016), you may ask us to change his position on your team to his new position. You must ask us, this is not automatic. If you do not ask he will maintain his original position.

*Auction Email Draft League Rules

These leagues are identical to all Master’s Dynasty Leagues with the following exceptions:

  • Each owner starts with 300 bidding bucks.
  • • Auction timer is set to 9 hours. Every time a new bid is placed, the timer resets to 9 hours. When the timer hits zero, the player is awarded to the highest bidder.
  • Every owner can nominate 2 players on day one (for a max of 24 players being nominated at one time). On day two, that changes to 4 players per owners (with a max of 40 players nominated at one time).
  • The system uses proxy bidding, meaning a player can be nominated with a bid of $35. The system will start at $1. Every time a bid is placed, the price for that player will increase, but remain with the owner who nominated him. Once the bidding reaches $36, a new owner will take control of the player.
  • You must have a complete starting lineup when the Auction is complete (including a kicker and defense).

**SuperFlex League Rules

These leagues are identical to all Master’s Dynasty Leagues with the exception being, one of your flex players may be a QB.

Special Dynasty League Rules

After each season, the divisions will be recast randomly by the computer.

After the first season there is an annual Rookie/Free Agent Draft. This draft is a 3 round Email Draft and will start in late July / early August (check league calendar for exact date and time). During the Rookie/Free Agent Draft rosters will be allowed to expand to accommodate all draft picks. Rosters must be cut back to 21 by the start of the NFL season. You will not be able to add players via Blind Bidding until you are back at the roster limit of 21 players. This draft will not start until there are 12 paid teams. If a league does not have 12 paid teams by August 31st it will fold and all deposits will be refunded to the original owners that remain in the league. This draft is a fixed round draft (non-serpentine).

Each year there will be a Draft Lottery for the Rookie/Free Agent Draft. The Draft Lottery will take place shortly after the Superbowl and a video of each league's lottery will be posted on our YouTube Channel. The draft order for the Rookie/Free Agent Draft is determined by randomly drawing the 6 non-playoff teams and placing them #1 to #6. The six playoff teams will draft in the order of their playoff seeding with the League Champion drafting #12 and the Runner-Up drafting #11. The reason for randomizing the first 6 picks is to remove any incentive for throwing games at the end of the season to improve an owner’s draft pick.

Trading will be suspended from 11pm ET the night before the Rookie/Free Agent Draft and will resume the following Friday.

There is only one period of waivers in the pre-season. Blind Bidding will start the Sunday before Labor Day. Bids will process that Wednesday night. First come – first served will run from Wednesday at 11pm until Sunday at 1pm.

Any unused blind bidding dollars carry over to the next season.

After the season ends (which is after week 17) – ALL free agents or non-roster players lock until after the rookie/free agent draft.

Trading. Dynasty Leagues by nature involve a LARGE amount of trading. If you are opposed to trading - do NOT sign up for a Dynasty League. All trades have to be balanced and may either be 1 for 1, 2 for 2 or 3 for 3. Any trades involving more than 6 players will be automatically rejected. Draft picks do NOT count as players and can be included in all trades. When evaluating trades in Dynasty Leagues we will be more tolerant than we are in regular re-draft leagues. Some trades may appear lopsided on paper but allow a weaker team to have a chance to re-build for the future.

You will NOT be able to trade draft picks during the initial 21-round dispersal draft.

Renewal fees will be due by the second Sunday in May. If your payment has not been received by the renewal deadline, your team will be declared abandoned and placed up for sale. You will NOT receive a refund for any previous payments. In addition, you will not be able to make any transactions or trades until your payment has been made.

Masters Fantasy Football Money Leagues reserves the right to move players and/or picks between orphan teams in an attempt to make the teams more marketable/sellable. We will NOT pick up free agents - this would strictly be moving players and/or picks between orphan teams.

You will be required to roster a complete starting lineup at all times. Meaning you must have at least one QB, one TE, one TMPK (team place kicker) and one D on your roster at ALL times.

A Dynasty League only comes to an end when we are unable to fill it.

One entry per league per customer.

All Masters Fantasy Football Money Leagues are games of skill.


Covid-19 IR

Masters will be using a Covid-IR if the NFL keeps a Covid-IR in place. If the NFL does away with the Covid-IR, we will do the same.

The IR will be unlimited, meaning any player with the NFL Covid-IR designation will be eligible to be placed on Masters IR. Also, any player that opts out of the season due to Covid-19 will be eligible for the IR. When each player is removed from the NFL’s IR, you will need to make a roster adjustment prior to being able to set your lineup.

To add a player to the Covid-19 IR, simply hover over (or click) “For Owners” at the top of the page and choose “Injured Reserve”. You can also click on your team name and select "Injured Reserve" from the list of options.

From there you check the player(s) name under Deactivate to IR and finally click “Perform Injured Reserve”.

Players on the Covid-19 IR can be traded – but keep in mind the team getting the player MUST have an open spot on their roster. The player will NOT go to the new owner’s Covid-19 IR – the player will go to their active roster. If an open spot is not available, the trade will NOT go through. If both owners are trading a Covid-19 IR player, they are both required to have an open spot on their roster.
