Some ruleset questions for a new league

Postby mrdj204 » Sat Nov 25, 2017 7:47 am

This is my 2nd dynasty league, but my first time doing idp and salary caps.

10 teams, $105M cap, 35 roster spots, idp, avg $3M/player, all rookies drafted to taxi and contracts don't count towards cap until activated

1) What are good set contracts for rookie draft positions? Do you do it by round or each position?
I currently have this scheme I've found here: http://dynastyfootballwarehouse.com/why ... ty-league/

First Round Picks will be signed to $2 M/ 4 year contracts
Second Round Picks will be signed to $1 M/ 3 year contracts
Third Round Picks will be signed to $500 K/ 3 year contracts
All Remaining Picks will be signed to $500 K/ 2 year contracts

But I've been reading IDP rookie drafts can typically go 7 rounds and I don't think this accounts for that properly.

2) Is there draft software that can handle contract years in bids?

3) With contract year bidding, should a higher yearly average or the total contract value be favored more? More simply, should a 4yr/$5M or a 2yr/$7M contract be valued higher?

Thanks for any help :)

In my league it's just an 8 team league with $300 cap $3 min and you can sign people to 1-3 years (up to the owner).

I slotted the rookie prices based on position and and when drafted. Because our league is only 8 teams and players can only be signed to a max of 3 years rookies aren't prevalent so we only do 2 rounds. And usually half go unsigned.

Rookie Pay Scale
Pick QB RB WR TE K
1 8 11 8 5 3
2 7 11 8 5 3
3 7 10 8 5 3
4 7 10 7 5 3
5 7 9 7 4 3
6 7 9 7 4 3
7 6 9 7 4 3
8 6 8 6 4 3
9 6 8 6 4 3
10 6 8 6 4 3
11 6 7 6 4 3
12 6 7 6 4 3
13 5 7 6 3 3
14 5 6 5 3 3
15 5 6 5 3 3
16 5 6 5 3 3

When I proposed adding an IDP a couple years ago I tweaked the grid to include IDP and added 2 more rounds. I also raised the prices for the players chosen in the first 2 rounds and made these prices for rounds 3 and 4.
