Salary Cap Rules?

Postby #1BucsFan » Sat Jun 22, 2019 9:05 pm

So I'm looking to create a salary cap startup league either this year or next, but I'm not sure about the rules for salary caps specifically. I know I want to make it an auction league with a rule something like increasing the amount you paid for the player each year if you choose to keep him. Does anyone have a sample constitution I could look over? I was thinking of having the option to keep any player with no max, but a 5% increase every year for example. What are other standard or common salary cap rules?

I just created a league like this. The price increase is the greater of 10% or $10 (1,000 budget), it feels about right. Flat 5% seems a little light, but that would just promote a more long term/dynasty outlook, which is fine too. In my league several of the high ranked rookies went for super cheap or went undrafted. With only a 5% increase rookies would have insane value potential.

Interested to see what other comments are so kinda bumping this

I do a league like this. It is an auction (only way to go IMO) with a $250 cap. Teams may keep up to 2 players from the previous years roster for a $10 increase per player kept. Any player picked up during the season has a default salary of $1, meaning they can be kept the following year for $11.

Example: I paid $61 for Alvin Kamara last season. He came out early in the auction and I got him cheaper than I should have. This year, I figured he would go for around $80-$90, so I opted to keep him for $71. I didn't really have any other viable options so that made it a pretty easy decision to keep him.
