GWJFFL 2017: Fantasy Football Registration

Hi there! I'm *Legion*, and I will be your tyrant fantasy commissioner this year.

This thread is specifically to signup for, and discussion about, the GWJFFL, the official fantasy football league of Gamers with Jobs.

Registration is on a first come, first serve basis, with priority given to returning owners. Teams who sign up after all positions are filled will be added to a waiting list to be contacted should a slot become available. The waiting list carries over from year to year so signing up as an alternate for this season reserves your position until you forfeit it.

While the structure and rules of the GWJFFL are based on the (now defunct) World Championship of Online Fantasy Football, the GWJFFL is a dynamic league and subject to evolution. Please review the official GWJFFL rules to ensure you are familiar with them.

Leagues:

GWJFFL offers leagues in three different formats: redraft, keeper, and dynasty. Redraft leagues are in an ordered hierarchy (including the optional premium league, with cash prizes), while keeper and dynasty formats consist of a single league each.

The current league structure is as follows:

Redraft format
GWJFFL Pro (optional premium league)
GWJFFL Division I
GWJFFL Division II
GWJFFL Division III

Keeper format
GWJFFL Keeper

Dynasty format
GWJFFL Dynasty

Registration:

In order to register, reply to this post, stating your desire to play, and in which leagues you are interested in playing.

Your post should adhere to the following format:

GWJFFL Pro

as well as

GWJFFL Keeper

Returning veterans (only last year counts) that post by 23:59 CDT next Tuesday, August 8, will be guaranteed a spot. Beginning August 9, all sign-ups are first come, first serve. Expansion teams (i.e. new owners) should still post ASAP because you'll be added to the waiting list in the order you post to fill what slots remain once the veterans have had their head-start.

Registration will close at 23:59 PDT on Saturday, 08/29.

Again:
* 08/01 to 08/08 - Priority registration: returning owners reclaim their spot; new owners get onto the waiting list
* 08/09 to 08/29 - Open registration

Rule changes for 2017:

Only one change will be implemented this year: roster sizes.

Changes are:
Redraft: Maximum of 18 active players (+1)
Keeper: Maximum of 19 active players (+1)
Dynasty: Maximum of 28 active players (+5)

Roster spots have been cut multiple times, and so we are dialing things back slightly this year. Bear in mind that, before we started trimming roster sizes, redraft was a 20 man roster.

Spoiler:

The big change is in dynasty, where the roster size simply did not reflect the modern standards of a dynasty league. I was tempted to hit the 30 man mark that I've seen other dynasty leagues operate at, but we will just go with a 5-man increase for 2017.

How convenient is it that I could just copy/pasta the exact wording from OP? Well done sir.

I'm also slightly intrigued by joining dynasty if a spot opens up. Kinda depends though, not sure how I feel about taking over a dynasty team this far into things.

We're expanding roster size this year, so it's a good year to join.

1) If easier, my team names are Division II (The Coversstealing Gene), Keeper (Exley's Magic Lamps) and Dynasty (Sophia Loren Was A Source). For the life of me, I cannot remember what exactly that Magic Lamps name was getting at exactly...

2) I did not see it in the rules and I can't remember - what is the actual budget for the keeper auction?

3) Similarly, I did not see it in the rules and I can't remember - how many players can we actually keep in dynasty (is it 12)? And did/should this increase with increased roster size?

It's currently 18 keepers. I was just coming to ask if that's increasing by five as well.

The rule for the number of dynasty keepers is 80% of the roster limit. So the limit will be raised to 22 for the new roster size.

I need to update the league settings, and I guess the rules document too.

I'm bowing out this year, it has been a good 10(?) year run in Pro but I haven't watched much football the past two years and I expect to have a very busy autumn with work, school and a one year old.

Oh, missed the Keeper prices at the bottom of the OP. I'm stoked for this season. My team is almost entirely set.

Fantasy was definitely a mixed bag for me last year...

No, just one that I win a lot.

I'm going to have to pass this year, good luck to everyone!

I'm going to bow out this year, so my keeper and dynasty spots will be open. If for some reason dynasty doesn't fill up I'll run my team there to keep the league alive.
