is a 8-12 team Fantasy Football League. Students will have the
opportunity to make league and front office financial decisions while also
participating in head-to-head on-the-field competition. The simulation uses
real NFL players in real time.
Before the first week of the
season, the team owners will be assigned to teams where their market sizes are
different. The next step will be free agent auction of players. All
teams must have the following number of contracted players on their roster.
2 Quarterbacks - 1
starts each week
4 Running Backs - 2
start each week
4 Receivers - 2 start
2 Kickers - 1 starts
2 Teams (Special
Teams and Defense) - 1 starts each week
If your team has less than 14 players in the roster during the season
there will be fine of $100,000 per each week.
Player Auction will be
take place outside of the class time and will be announced in class.
Since auctioning off
players in every team takes considerable amount of time from the previous
experiences (3 minutes multiplied by 14 * 10 players equals 7 hours!).
We will have a mixture of auction and draft system. Basically, we
will have 14 rounds of draft which means that teams take turns to choose
one player and the order of turns will be determined randomly before the
draft starts. We introduce an auction system during the first two
rounds. During the first two rounds any team challenges other team's
pick by offering higher salary to the player. Other teams are also allowed
to offer even higher salary to win over the specific player.
Therefore, whichever team offers the highest bid for the player will sign
the contract with him. For the rest of rounds teams are not allowed
