I tried looking it up a bit, but just wanted to confirm...

 

Now that "everyone" in dynasty is paid up and cut down to 16, is trading back on the menu? :)

 

Yes, go for it. Dinner is served. :)

I see now that you can click "reply" on emails about trade offers and rejections and it sends an email to the owner that sent it.  What a HUGE improvement!!!!  Thank you.

 

Is this currently working?  I've sent replies and no one ever replies back.

Dynasty Announcements and Rules Changes.

 

1. We are finally accepting credit cards for dynasty leagues.

 

That includes league fees, deposits, and entry fees.  This will improve convenience for owners and for us. To help offset a portion of rates of credit card fees (4%+), there will be a small effect on payouts for $750-$2500 leagues. $500 league payouts are affected by just $50.  

 

2. By popular request, we have increased payouts to the #1 and #2 seeds in $500, $750 and $1250 leagues.

 

We got close to paying back the full entry fee to #1/#2 seeds, but wanted to maintain strong payouts to 1st place as well. Prize structures are below.

 

$500 Dynasty Leagues

 

Regular Season Prizes (Weeks 1-13)

 

Seed #1 $400 / Seed #2 $400

 

League Playoffs Prizes (Weeks 14-16)

 

1st - $2,500

2nd - $1,000

3rd - $500  

 

$750 Dynasty Leagues

 

Regular Season Prizes (Weeks 1-13)

 

Seed #1 $650 / Seed #2 $650

 

League Playoffs Prizes (Weeks 14-16)

 

1st - $3,700

2nd - $1,500

3rd - $750

4th - $400  

 

$1,250 Dynasty Leagues

 

Regular Season Prizes (Weeks 1-13)

 

Seed #1 $1,000 / Seed #2 $1,000

 

League Playoffs Prizes (Weeks 14-16)

 

1st - $7,000

2nd - $2,500

3rd - $1,250

4th - $500  

 

$2,500 Dynasty Leagues 

 

Regular Season Prizes (Weeks 1-13)

 

Seed #1 $2,500 / Seed #2 $2,500

 

League Playoffs Prizes (Weeks 14-16)

 

1st - $12,500

2nd - $5,000

3rd - $3,000

4th - $1,500

 

3. FFPC Dynasty trade deadline EXTENDED by one week. 

 

In past seasons it was week 10.  This year it will be Friday, November 18th at midnight PT. It seems like most owners do prefer a somewhat later trade deadline so they have a better idea as to whether their team has a good shot at the playoffs or start working on building for the following season. Should increase trade activity which is fun.

 

4. IR'ed players picked up via waivers can be placed on FFPC Injured Reserve.  

 

This rule was impossible to enforce well. Some may disagree, but IMO it is not really that big of a deal to permit it. If an owner wants to park a player on his IR all season and carry him or her through roster cuts down to 16 (when all players must be activated with no IR), more power to him or her.

 

5. NFL players on PUP and NFI (non-football injury list) can now be placed on FFPC Injured Reserve.

 

In 2015, they had to remain on the active roster. Literally everyone wants to be able to IR PUP list guys while they are on PUP. 

 

6. We are adding a 2nd preseason waiver period heading into NFL week one for FFPC dynasty leagues.

 

This will be a normal waiver period on Wednesday, September 7th at 10 pm ET. This will help if anyone has a kicker (or other player) that gets cut by their NFL team during final roster cuts.

 

7. Offseason roster requirements, reduced 3 RBs and 3 WRs required to 2 RBs required and 2 WRs required.

 

 

Dynasty Improvements Coming:

 

We have a number of improvements on the way for dynasty and overall FFPC leagues as well.

 

Those include: 

  • Improved trade emails.
  • Roster counts in additional places.
  • Updating draft rooms and trade offers to show all traded picks by number (ex. 2.09).
  • Auto-pay when dealing a future 1st.
  • Renew leagues one at a time. 
  • Improved league chat.
  • Set future lineups.
  • Live scoring improvements. 
  • Bid group copy/paste improvements. 
  • Auto-replace QB, K and D in lineup if only one is dropped. 
  • Show current playoff teams in league standings.

There may be more improvements that I am missing as well. 

 

That pretty much covers it. The 2016 season will be another exciting year for FFPC Dynasty leagues. You can see the passion as owners are already starting to make trades and positioning their teams for roster cuts and the 2016 rookie draft. Bring on the draft!

 

Did a similar announcement come out for 2017 Dynasty year?

 

I'm specifically wondering about the date for rookie drafts.  I was almost certain it was 2 weeks after the NFL draft when I booked a trip beginning May 30th.  Now, all my league home pages say the rookie draft starts on Tuesday, May 30?

Dynasty drafts will start on Saturday, May 10th, per the rules. Start times will be in the AM and staggered to avoid slowing the server. The May 30th date is a placeholder as the tech team just flipped into 2017.
