How do I play?

...The Special Teams unit covers both kick return and place kicking duties.
What size should my roster be?
...A roster must consist of 3 Offense units, 3 Defense units and 2 Special Teams units.
When do I draft my roster?
…Each week, after the previous week’s stats are compiled, a new list of team units and salaries will be posted.
…You can look over the available units, compare matchups and do your research
…All finalized roster selections must be submitted by 7:00 am Pacific Time on Saturday of each game week.
How does the draft work?
…You must choose a total of 8 units each week (3 O, 3 D, 2 ST)
…Each unit comes at a cost, or salary, based upon their prior performance
…You can draft whatever units you wish, but you cannot exceed a total “cost” of $100,000
Can I change my roster during the season?
…ABSOLUTELY!! With a weekly draft, your roster will likely change every week, depending upon YOUR preferences.
…You will start each week with a clean slate – no teams carry over from one week to the next.
Who am I playing against?
…Everyone else in the league for that week, whether it’s a public or private league.
What’s the difference between a private and public league?
…People can play in any week’s public league, whether they have played before or not. Each week is a new public league, with no carryover of scores from one week to the next
…A private league has been created by a league Commissioner, is joined by invitation only, and allows scores to accumulate over the course of the season
…Private leagues also have their own message boards – an extra incentive to create a private league of your own so you can talk smack with your buddies
How many Leagues can I join?
...There is no limit as to the number of leagues you may join or create, but there are separate drafts to prepare for each week for each league. Rosters cannot be shared between leagues.
How does the scoring work?
...Scoring each week is calculated from certain metrics for each unit, based on the actual college football game the unit is involved in.
*an Offense unit earns points for TDs scored and yards gained, but loses points for interceptions and lost fumbles.
*a Defense unit earns points by giving up fewer points scored against them by the offense of the college team they are playing against that week. A Defense unit giving up too many points can actually cost its owner points!
*A Defense unit also earns points by scoring TDs and safeties themselves, recovering fumbles, causing interceptions, blocking kicks and forcing punts.
*Special Teams units score points by scoring on punt and kickoff returns as well as by making field goals (longer ones earn more points) and extra points.
*Missed PATs and field goal attempts, or losing fumbles on returns subtract points for a Special Teams unit Scores are compiled and results calculated for each H2H matchup in each league. …Unit scoring depends upon which String your unit is.
*First string units earn all of their points
*Second string units earn ½ of their points
*Third String units earn ¼ of their points.
**For example, after playing a game, Alabama’s D unit earned 24 points. If you had them as your 1st String D, you get 24 points. If you had them as your 2nd String D, you would get 12 points. If they were your 3rd String D, you would get 6 points.
…Points are awarded to ALL units, and are rounded to the nearest .01 point.
…Your weekly score will be the sum of all 8 units you drafted
How will I find out how I am doing?
...Each league will have its own standings where you can see how your teams stacked up against everyone else’s
…If your team hasn’t scored any points for a specific week, it won’t be listed
