    Yep that's the problem. The payouts are reduced and the league would just be super watered down. Like the only other way to just do a money league is do 100% redraft where there are no keepers which is the opposite of what I wanted. OMB said they were in if we had 7 and even theoretically if he played that's only 5 owners.

    Not sure what else we can do at this point.

    What if we ran it "free" this year, doing it the way it was planned stat/keeper wise, and "roll" this year's $10 into next year? I.E. pay $0 this year, pay $20 next year?

    Maybe this years champ automatically, worst case, gets their $20 back next year? Something like that to incentivize this years league.

    Then Doom could play, as he'd have a year to put $20 aside, and anyone else tight this year (myself included) wouldn't have to worry about it until next?

    I don't really have a problem with the idea except it just would feel weird to do the first year free and then have people not come back. I'm not sure it would solve the problems of not having enough owners. Like what if someone misses the draft since it would be online through ESPN and doesn't like their roster enough to come back and pay?

    I suppose we could allow keepers for free agents in this. And just use the adp as value.

    Would there be enough people interested in being in a second league like this if it's free? If you are post and let me know. You wouldn't be obligated to pay next year and would allow a fresher set of keeper picks.

    Like i guess even worst case scenario this just can be more or a dynasty league to be different from zeros league. And then leave it optional for people to put money in the pot if they wish.

    So we can roll with that. Dynasty style league, points based and free. You can put money into a pot for a chance to win but not required.

    If someone with POWAH can change the name of the thread to "WC Fantasy Baseball Dynasty League" that would be dope. Since we're dropping the prize aspect I don't wanna scare anybody off from taking a look since we only have a few days yet.

    Since you're dropping the prize aspect, I'm still interested in competing in your dynasty league Cox.

    Re: WC Fantasy Baseball - Dynasty League

    Yo playas and pimps. Got a fun idea:

    Who would be interested in drafting this league during the All-Star break? Unconventional for sure but unique and fun. I even ran this by a dude who gets paid to do fantasy stuff and he likes the idea.

    The basics:

    -we draft during the downtime of the 2018 season for 2019.

    -we do NOT play for 2018 in any capacity.

    -basically from the end of the draft until next year trading is open. No roster drops. Basically the team you draft is yours unless you trade. Then when next year hits and we can actually enter players into the database drops will be allowed.

    -why? Something fun to do during the break and potentially get more people interested.

    -same rules as discussed before. Dynasty rules and money in a side pot if interested. If not then it's just a regular league for you.

    Another consideration if we do this is to do a lottery style draft. Maybe like 3-5 rounds to draft a core. Then we still have a normal draft next year


    Any takers?

    Re: WC Fantasy Baseball - Dynasty League

    Uhh

    Try again?

    So I discovered that there's an in-depth formal system that does basically what I wanted to do with the dynasty league I proposed. There's a couple of catches though:

    -Mandatory entry fee minimum $20.

    -Uses advanced stats and not just common fantasy stats.



    Last year I tried this too late to get it going. Trying earlier this year. Here's the link to read up on the format and how it works:

    https://ottoneu.fangraphs.com


    The draft itself isn't really a draft. Its pretty unique. Each owner has a turn nominating a player and then everyone bids on that player auction style. This sounds fascinating and I'd love to try this. I'll be playing either way as I'll either join a league if we can't do a WC one.

    So yeah.

    Count me in. An auction draft with advance stats sounds awesome.

    It's definitely a little more original than anything I've tried. The dynasty format and even the 40 man rosters sounds amazing to be a part of and it's built in. No spreadsheets to track or anything offsite.

    I've tried auction drafts in a few sports a few times, and really didn't like it. Prefer regular draft. I could adjust to the advanced stats, but the Auction would be a deal-breaker for me.
