  • $74
  • $174

Making 6 Leagues Types:

  1. Superflex Leagues (buy-ins of $35, $74, $174)
  2. 1QB Leagues (buy-ins of $35, $74, $174)

BUY-IN/ENTRY FEES

You'll notice that when you join a league, the actual buy-in fee you will have to pay will be 1.5x (150%) the stated entry fee price. That extra 50% will count towards your buy-in for the following season. I AM NOT taking a portion of your buy-in, nor is TeamStake. All of the money you deposit will be going 100% towards your league fees and into the winner's pot.

The reason we force an additional 50% buy-in fee is that in a fantasy football dynasty league, league members have the ability to trade future draft picks. In my experience, many owners will trade their future draft picks in hopes of winning the championship of the current season, knowing their future will be in shambles, thus leaving the league after the current year and leaving the league in need of an orphan owner to adopt the team. This 50% buy-in fee for the following season ensures that each league member is committed to a DYNASTY league for the long-term. IF you have an issue with paying the 50% fee for the following season's buy-in you can feel free to... not join the league because there will be 0 negotiations on this rule. Thank you. 

***This means that when the following season rolls around, you only have to pay 50% of the buy-in because you've already paid 50%***

All buy-ins will be DUE ONE WEEK PRIOR to the date of the draft. For league members that do no pay by the deadline, there will be an EXTRA 15% FEE ON TOP OF THE BUY-IN.

COMMISSIONER

There will be no individual league commissioner. All leagues will be monitored by the BDGE team, acting as THE LAW and an overarching commissioner. If any problems, issues or questions arise you may leave a message on the Patreon Message Board at www.patreon.com/bdge or contact us at info@bigdogsfantasy.com and someone on the BDGE team will get back to you as soon as possible.

START-UP DRAFT

Every draft will be a SLOW DRAFT, meaning each league member will have a maximum time of 8 hours to make their pick. Some people take 30 seconds, others use 7 hours and 59 minutes. The reason for this is due to differing time zones, living situations around the world and sleep schedules. Real-time dynasty drafts are unrealistic, so grow up.

  • The first slate of leagues are scheduled to being drafting on Sunday, June 2nd, 2019.
  • 8 hours per pick.
  • Superflex drafts will consist of 28 rounds. 1QB drafts will consist of 26 rounds.
  • Every night at 1 am EST, the draft will pause until 6:30 am EST to adjust for sleep.
  • If someone times out on their 8 hours, the CPU will auto-draft for them. So, don't do that.
  • The draft order will be determined completely at random, per the FleaFlicker Random Generator software.
  • The draft style will be a snake draft. The league member with the last pick in the first round will receive the first pick in the second round. And vice versa.
  • Any time a pick is made, each league member should receive an email and/or a notification via the FleaFlicker app on their phone. to keep the process moving smoothly.
  • The initial startup draft will include both Veterans and Rookies in one player pool. There will NOT be an initial draft for veterans (sophomores+) followed by a separate rookie draft.
  • Trading WILL NOT BE ALLOWED DURING THE INITIAL STARTUP DRAFT. I understand that this will be an unpopular setting, but due to the recent popularity rise in dynasty leagues, many league members in the BDGE leagues will be joining a dynasty league for the very first time. New dynasty league members tend to severely de-value or over-value draft picks during the startup, leading to EXTREMELY lob-sided trades during the startup draft, further leading to a serious lack of parity to kick the league off, simultaneously digging these inexperienced players into unnecessary holes. Ifosfacto, I'm ya boss and there will be no trading... for now.
  • Trading of picks during the startup drafts will LIKELY be introduced into BDGE 2020 startup drafts.
  • Trading will open up immediately following the conclusion of the startup draft.

ROOKIE/FREE AGENT DRAFT

  • Rookie/Free Agent Drafts (exact date - TBD) will be held sometime between 2-4 weeks after the NFL Draft concludes.
  • Rookie/Free Agent Drafts will operate in the same fashion as the initial startup draft: 8 Hours/Pick.
  • Rookie/Free Agent Drafts will consist of 4 rounds of drafting. Each league member will begin the league year with one pick in each round of the Rookie/Free Agent Draft based on reverse order of standings from the previous season (I.E. 12th/last place will receive the 1.01 in the following season's Rookie/Free Agent Draft). These will NOT be Snake. The league member who finished in last place during the previous season will receive the 1.01, 2.01, 3.01 and 4.01 (assuming he/she did not trade any of their picks).
  • Trading during rookie/free agent drafts during the off-season WILL be allowed.
