One of IDP Fantasy Football’s biggest turnoffs for potential new players has to be the commitment to a new league with a new format that is unfamiliar. Especially as almost all IDP leagues are within a dynasty format. To try and solve this issue, we at Fake Pigskin are proud to announce that this year we will be launching IDP Draftmaster Leagues for our readers!
This is a way to introduce yourself to IDP football without feeling crushed by the hours of studying depth charts or watching college film of the third string Safety at Minnesota to see if he might be a ball hawk – which sometimes feels like the workload required to get involved.
A no strings-attached, no commitment league that requires just basic research and a little prior knowledge might be the first step that you need to expand your fantasy horizons! And at Fake Pigskin we are committed to getting more players into the IDP game.
Entry is FREE and the leagues are to be run on My Fantasy League. Basic setup is below:
– 12 Team League
– Non-PPR Scoring/Big Play Heavy Scoring
– Draft-only format, optimal lineups automatically set, no roster manaegement
– 32 Round slow draft, 8hr clock with overnight timeout
– Lineup includes standard offensive positions plus 3DL, 3LB and 3DB
– Minimum roster requirements advised to maximise scoring.
– Draft starts when league is filled.
With the help of a lot of great guys on twitter, I ran a pilot league last month to test the water and try to perfect the settings. Here is a link to that league: https://www30.myfantasyleague.com/2014/home/57490#0
(Note some subtle changes we made after that league.)
Leagues will be set up to meet interest – and you can enter as many as you like, providing we have the commissioners to run them! All leagues will be run by a member of the IDP staff here at Fake Pigskin and you will be sent a welcome pack with more detailed information for each player.
The First League will run On Friday 18th of July, with new leagues starting as soon as they are filled with entrants.
What have you got to lose? This is like a free sample of something you’ve always been curious about – well now you may as well take a bite of the apple if we’re gonna dangle it in front of you!
