As some of you may already know, I went ahead and renewed the league. I need to make some changes to the points system since we are now a 1/2 point PPR league. I will need everyone who participated in last year's league to confirm their participation in this year's league. Since I'm getting this out of the way early this year, we shouldn't be scrambling around trying to find out who's participating and who isn't at the last minute again.

Changes to the 2020 DP Fantasy FootballLeague


1 – We are now a “keeper” league (see rules below)
2 – We are now a ½ point PPR league. The player catching the forward pass will get .5 points for each reception – this is in addition to whatever points they receive for yardage. An interception does not count as this is counted as an interception and not a reception.
3 – The playoffs will now be limited to the top 4 finishers in the league based on record (tie breaker is overall points scored)




Keeper League Rules


1 – Each team can keep 2 players from last year's roster.
2 – You will forfeit your draft pick in this year's draft based on where they were drafted last year, minus 1 round.
2A – Example: I drafted Marlon Mack last year in the 4[SUP]th[/SUP] round. If I want to keep him, I forfeit my 3[SUP]rd[/SUP] round pick in this year's draft.
2B – It matters where the player was drafted last year, not that you were the one who drafted him. In other words, if Team A drafted Player X in the 7[SUP]th[/SUP] round and that player was dropped and picked up by another team or that player was traded to another team, the team that had the player on their roster at the end of the season last year is the one who can choose to keep that player and they would give up their 6[SUP]th[/SUP] round pick in this year's draft in order to do so in this example.
2C – Players that were undrafted last year may be kept if they were on your roster at the end of the 2019 season. In order to keep them, you would forfeit the round that they are projected to be drafted in this year's draft based on Yahoo's ADP for the 2020 season.
3 – The deadline to assign your keepers is Saturday, September 5[SUP]th[/SUP], 2020.
4 – You don't have to keep any players from your 2019 end-of-season roster if you don't want to. If you choose to not keep anyone, you won't have to forfeit any draft picks. In addition, if you decide to keep just 1 player, you will only have to give up the 1 draft pick.




Draft date/time


Sunday, September 6[SUP]th[/SUP], 2020 at 5 PM ET




The date and time of the draft is dependent on the NFL Season starting as scheduled on September 10[SUP]th[/SUP], 2020. If the season is delayed, both the draft date/time as well as the deadline to assign keepers is subject to change.


If there is no 2020 NFL season due to COVID or some other unforeseen situation, all players on your team's roster at the end of the 2019 season will be eligible for “keeper status” in 2021 – you will still only be able to keep a maximum of 2.

No, you don't have a current roster to choose from. You only get to select up to 2 players from last year's roster to keep for this year.

I meant trade keeper players and maybe a draft pick for another keeper player...but thats fine. Ive played in keeper leagues were there was a lot of wheeling and dealing.

OK, all teams have confirmed. My friend Jason is dropping out but another friend Jake is taking his spot. So far it looks good for the season starting on time. Make sure you figure out which players you want to keep, if any. This decision must be finalized by 11:59 PM ET on 9/5/2020. If you don't make a selection, you don't have any keepers.

Do you want them posted here? And can we cancel a pick before the 5th is someone gets injured between now and then?

You can select your keepers right from the website (I already selected mine). Nothing is locked in until 11:59 PM ET on 9/5.

I need everyone to respond to this please.

Is there any opposition to moving the draft to Monday as opposed to Sunday. I didn't realize this was a holiday weekend when I scheduled the draft. It may make it easier for some if we draft on Monday as opposed to Sunday due to this.

Please let me know.

Possible problem for me but I'll preorder my picks and go with what I get if I am not able to login. I'll be on the road.
