The Bizzaro Dynasty League (BDL) was created in the summer of 2011 during the NFL Lockout following the 2011 NFL Draft. A lot of us were really bored and were looking for something to keep us occupied. In the beginning the league consisted of 16 teams, that were composed of 2 NFL rosters mashed together. We manage a cap, trades, waivers, free agency, a draft and pretty much anything else that pertains to running a team.

Lasting for years to come is what has brought us to this point. A group of posters from another forum have decided to migrate ourselves and our mock/sim/fantasy Dynasty League here because our current forum is dying. We chose FF because this was the place most likely to attract co-owners, potential new owners and just more interest in general.

Roster Management

There are four ways to add players onto your team:

Draft April 10th

The BDL draft is very similar to the NFL draft: 7 rounds in which teams pick in the reverse orders of the previous seasons, the BDL champion picking last in each round. There are no compensatory picks. At the end of the draft, each team submits a wishlist of undrafted free agents to a forum member (bcb1213), and, just like for waivers, the player the team ends up getting depends on the draft order and the wishlist of other teams. You can sign up to 2 undrafted free agents right after the draft

Free Agency Starts May 29

Each free agent will be available to every team in BDL, as long they have the cap space to sign them. Free agency lasts three weeks in July, one week being reserved for OL & QB, one for RBs, WRs and TEs, and one for the defensive positions. Each team can start a bid on player as long as the salary proposal represents at least 40% of the IRL contract of the player. Every other team then has 48 hours to up the last bid on a player (raising a bid follows a certain set of rules detailed in the free agency threads), after those 48 hours have passed, the player is signed by the team that submitted the last bid.

At the end of those 3 weeks, every remaining free agency can be signed one week in August, the Shark Tank week. In the Shark Tank, every team can submit one year only bids to remaining free agents. There again, you can raise a bid following certain rules. Every team has 24 hours to up a bid, after that, the player is signed by the team that submitted the last bid.

Restricted Free Agents

Players in their 3rd or 4th year of the league with expiring contracts become restricted free agents: each owner has a chance to tag a player with a pick of its choice (from a 1st rounder to a 7th). If another owner wishes to sign the player, they have to make an offer that the owner of the player won’t match and give him the pick with which the player was tagged.

Exclusive Rights Free Agents

Players ending their first or second year in the NFL become exclusive free agents. Their owner can choose to sign them at $500 for 2 years or let them hit Free Agency.

Trades

Trades are unlimited but must be submitted to the trade committee before being considered valid. There’s a trade deadline after week 9.

Waivers

Each week, every team has the right to claim a player, as well as a second if one of its players has gone on IR IRL

Roster Limits

Each roster is capped in salary and amount of players. The roster limit is set at 70 players. However, player that are RL free agents, that are on IR/PUP or that are on practice squads are not counted against that limit. The salary cap is set at $170,000 in 2017.

If a team goes above the roster limit (if say, a player on practice squad is signed IRL in a 53-men roster), they have to cut a player before their next game. If a transaction puts a team over the cap, they have either the chance to cut a salary (see later) or the transaction is considered invalid.

Contract Management

As soon as a player is signed on a roster, his contract is locked until the end of league year. For unlocked contracts, there’s a limited amount of options to alter them

3down (until May 29) : A 3down allows you to cut a player and its salary without penalty. You are allowed 3 3down each year, but only one for a player with 3 years of contract left or more

Sub 500 cut (all year long): Each player with a contract of $500 or less per year can be cut freely from a roster

Free-agent cut (all year long): a player who is a free agent IRL and who hasn’t played a snap in a full year can be cut without penalty from a roster

Retirement party (all year long): if a player announces his retirement from the NFL, he can be immediately cut from a roster.

Normal cut (all year long) : Any player can be cut at any time, but the owner will pay the salary of the player for the remaining time left on the contract

Double Down (all year long) : Every owner has the chance to reduce by 2 the number of years left on a contract by multiplying by 2 the salary. For instance, if a player has 2 years left on his contract at $1000 per year, he can be double downed and his contract will become $2000 with 1-year left

3up (All year round) : Each year, an owner has the chance to resign 3 players at a discount rate.
If the player is an upcoming free agent that is not coming out of his BDL rookie deal, he can be signed at 85% of the value of his remaining IRL contract
If a player is under BDL rookie contract but has just signed a new contract IRL, he can be signed at 85% of the value the IRL contract
If a player is a free agent coming out of his BDL rookie contract and has signed a new deal IRL before the year of the 3up, then the owner has to pay 85% of the total IRL contract but end the contract the same year in BDL than IRL. For instance, player X has a BDL rookie contract from 2013 to 2018 at $2000 per year and signed a new deal IRL in 2017 at $10M per year for 6 years. You can either 3up him in 2017 at $8,500 per year for 6 years or in 2018 at $9,800 per year for 5 years.

3up & over (until May 29) : A 3up & over gives the chance to owners to trade away or for upcoming free agents. If an owner trade for an upcoming free agent, he has to resign him at 100% of his IRL contract. Each owner is limited to one 3up & over per year (either if you trade for or away the player) and a 3up & over will count against the 3up limit for both parties

100% extension (all year long): You can extend an unlocked player at 100% of his IRL salary as long as it doesn’t decrease his BDL salary.

You can also offer a player a restructuration or an extension and negotiate with the contract committee. All 3downs and 3ups have to be agreed by the contract committee. 3up & overs have to be agreed by both contract and trade committees.

Gameday

Each NFL Sunday, you are required to send a lineup and a gameplan to face your opponent. Each lineup should field 11 starters (just like IRL) and up to 8 bench players. An offensive and defensive gameplan should explain the strategy of the team to beat its opponent (for example, take a look at last year Bizz Bowl: link Bizz Bowl game thread as an example). All gameplans must be submitted by 1pm ET on Sundays. To decide the winner, other forum members are required to vote and explain their votes on each matchup before the Wednesday at noon ET. Co-owners are only allowed to vote for their team if the owner doesn’t vote himself. Homefield advantage should be taken into account in the voting process. Games that are tied at noon ET go into overtime. The overtime lasts 1 hour and the first vote breaking the tie is the decisive vote.

Penalties are applicable for owners who don’t send their gameplans, who don’t vote or who don’t state their votes. (Insert penalties voted in owners meeting)

Each team will play its division opponent 2 times and two divisions’ teams once, which make a 14 games regular season. Each division winner is qualified for the playoffs as one of the top 4 seeds. The 4 next best records are qualified as the 5-8 seeds. Homefield advantage carries through the first round of the playoffs but the semifinals and Bizz bowl are on a neutral field.

Little by little we'll start migrating more of our stuff over. Right now we're in the middle of our "winter meeting" on the old site. Deciding on rule changes and such, we also have a potential open roster spot (a pretty good roster too).

Here's a peak at our roster spreadsheets right now, currently our Las Vegas team is likely looking for an owner, preferably co-owners.
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1qk-H8EoPV--Okyen1_xzyXSazmYYGpDo1uNI-0xJiBw/edit#gid=413862175

That'll give you an idea of what the current rosters are like, our 2017 draft order is listed as well as who owns what picks in 2018.

Great, when we get all of our stuff moved over and everyone is here I'm sure one of the owners will reach out to you. Like I said Seoul is looking at a co owner, Las Vegas is looking for more than 1 owner as they're currently vacated and potentially Portland and Boston could use help.
