1.0 Overview

Name, Commissioner & Host Site

This league will be known as the “DLF Early Birds Special" and commissioned by Cult of Dionysus.  The league will be hosted on MyFantasyLeague.com.


This league will have a DLF theme. All teams must conform with this theme, using their DLF names as team names.


This league will consist of 16 teams.

Standard of Conduct

Please treat your leaguemates and the commissioner with respect. Humor, jokes and good-natured ribbing are expected and even encouraged; however, pettiness, incivility and cutthroat tactics will not be tolerated.

If you play fantasy football to win, you will lose 95% of the time.  If the goal is to have a good time and be challenged, your odds of success are much, much higher.

2.0 Roster Composition

Starting Positions – Total of 10

  • 1 QB
  • 2 RBs
  • 3 WRs
  • 1 TEs
  • 2 Flex (RB, WR, TE)
  • 1 Superflex (QB, RB, WR, TE)

Bench – Total of 15

Taxi Squad

Each team will have a taxi squad of up to two (2) players.  Only rookies can be placed into the squad, which closes on August 31st.Players can be activated from the taxi squad at any time thereafter.Rookies cannot be left in the taxi squad after their rookie season.

Injured Reserve

Each team will have two Injured Reserve (IR) slots.Only players who are IR eligible per MFL can be placed on IR.

3.0   Scoring.


  • Passing Yards: 0.04 points per yard (e.g. 4 points for 100yds)
  • Passing Touchdowns: 4 points
  • Interceptions: -3 points (and -2 for Pick 6s)
  • 2pt Passing Conversion: 2 points

  • Rushing Touchdowns: 6 points

  • Receiving Touchdowns: 6 points
  • 2pt Receiving Conversion: 2 points
  • Each reception:  1 point per reception (for all positions)


  • -2 points Per Fumble Lost

4.0   Start-up Process


The league will begin with a 25-round veteran / rookie draft pick draft that snakes, followed by 3-round rookie draft.   Both drafts will be slow, email drafts run on MFL.  It is understood that owners cannot fill their entire roster with a mere 25 round draft, and owners will need to use their FAAB to fill their rosters in August, when FAAB opens up.

Veteran Draft

The start-up veteran draft will commence on April 17th of 2019.  Order to be generated randomly.  Draft will include all 2019 rookie draft slots.  Trading of players, picks and rookie draft slots prior to and during the veteran draft is allowed so long as MFL processes the rookie draft slots.

Rookie Draft

The rookie draft will commence on April 23rd of 2019.  Trading of picks and players prior to and during the rookie draft is allowed.


Each draft pick will be given 12 hours with the timer shutting off from 2 am to 9 am EST.   If a manager fails to make his or her pick in time, the manager will forfeit their pick.  Please set your Pre-Draft and My Draft Lists to protect yourself (note, these are two distinct functions on MFL.com).

5.0  Year 2 and Beyond


Each off-season after the “start-up year”, there will be a 5-round rookie draft.  Picks will be awarded based upon Potential Points during the Regular Season (for non-playoff teams) with the lowest scoring team getting 1.01 and playoff results (for playoff teams) with champion getting 1.16.  Note: Previous version of these Bylaws incorrectly referenced "Total Points For" as the means to determine the draft order of non-playoff teams. 


Each draft pick will be given 12 hours with no shutoff timer.  If a manager fails to make his or her pick in time, the manager will forfeit their pick.  Please set your Pre- Draft and My Draft Lists to protect yourself (note, these are two distinct functions on MFL.com).

6.0 Regular Season, Matchups and Playoffs

Regular Season

The regular season runs from Week 1 through Week 13 of the NFL season.

Match-ups & Standings

Match-ups are head to head, with standings based upon Wins – Losses – Ties.

Each team faces their division rivals 7x and all other divisions’ teams 1x.  All division matchups are by way of triple-headers.  All non-division matchups are by way of double-headers.

  • Week 1:  Triple-header versus division rivals
  • Week 2:  Double-header versus another division
  • Week 3: Triple-header versus division rivals
  • Week 4: Double-header versus another division
  • Week 5: Triple-header versus division rivals
  • Week 6: Double-header versus another division
  • Week 7: Triple-header versus division rivals
  • Week 8: Double-header versus another division
  • Week 9: Triple-header versus division rivals
  • Week 10: Double-header versus another division
  • Week 11: Triple-header versus division rivals
  • Week 12:  Double-header versus another division
  • Week 13: Triple Header versus division rivals


Playoffs are over Weeks 14, 15 & 16 of the NFL season based upon:

  • Overall Record
  • Points For
  • Head-To-Head
  • Division Winning %

Division champions make the playoffs plus the best two (2) non-division champ teams (Wins-Losses, then Points For).

  • Week 14 - Wildcard Round: Seeds 3 and 4 versus wildcard teams.
  • Week 15 – Semifinals (Seeds 1 and 2 versus Wildcar winners)
  • Week 16 – League Championship

Toilet Bowl & Plain Jane Tournaments

All non-playoff teams will compete in the Toilet Bowl (worst 6 teams) and Plain Jane Tourney (all other non-playoff teams).  Seeding for the Toilet Bowl will be in inverse order, meaning worst team gets the top seed. The winner of the Toilet Bowl will receive pick 2.17 in the rookie draft.  The winner of the Plain Jane Tourney will receive pick 2.18 in the rookie draft

7.0 Free Agency

There will be a Blind-Bidding waiver process beginning at 1:00 PM EST on the 1st Wednesday in August, repeating each Wednesday through Week 16 of the NFL Season.  Each team will have a FAAB of $100m.  To pick up a player who is on waivers, a minimum bid of $0 must be made. The manager with the highest bid will acquire the player, and for the exact dollar amount that was bid. Since this is blind-bidding, other managers will not be able to see your bid amount (and for what player) until waiver claims are processed. All bid amounts must be made in $1 increments.

In the event two or more managers bid an equal amount on the same player, the tie will be broken by Earliest Submitted Bid.

After each waiver claim period is complete, first-come-first-served (FCFS) players will be available for pick up.  All FCFS transactions are $0 and nothing will be deducted from your FAAB balance.

8.0 Trading

Review Process

All trades pass automatically and immediately.  Any manager may challenge a trade that he or she thinks is “without dynasty football merit”, in which case the league will vote whether to overturn the trade.  A trade will be overturned if all mangers (other than those who participated in the trade) vote as such.  If a manager has two trades overturned, that manager will be removed from the league without refund.

Trade Deadline

The trade deadline occurs after Week 13. Trading resumes after Week 16 ends.

Erroneous Trades

If a manager accepts a trade in error, the commissioner will overturn the trade if the manager in question provides near immediate notice (i.e. within 15 minutes of the trade).  If a manager takes longer than 15 minutes or sends out an erroneous trade and only realizes his or her mistake after it is accepted by the other side, the manager in question will need to take the matter up with the other side, who will have the discretion to hold the trade or reverse it themselves.

Trading of Future Picks

Trading of future picks (no more than one year in advance) is allowed.

9.0 Annual Calendar

Below is the annual calendar of the league:

  • Week 17 to March 1st – No league activities, trading allowed if fees are paid.
  • March 1st – MFL Dues are due
  • March 15th – Rule Change Discussions and Voting
  • April 7th – Rookie Draft
  • August 1st – 1st round of blind-bidding on free agents
  • Week 13 – Trade Deadline
  • Week 13 – End of regular season
  • Week 14 – Wildcard Round
  • Week 15 – Semifinals
  • Week 16 – League Championship
  • Week 17 – League Awards

10.0 Team Names & Graphics

Team names

Team names must conform to each owners DLF forum handle. 

Team banners

All team banners on MFL must be of the size that is set by the commissioner.  All banners must conform to graphics standards set by the commissioner.  The commissioner will publish his or her team banner, and all other team banners will generally follow the layout and quality of such banner.

11.0 Activity & Collusion


Managers are required to start full, active line-ups. If a manager fails to start a full, active line-up, that manager forfeits their 2nd round pick. If a manager fails to start a full, active line-up on two occasions during any season, that manager will be removed from the league. A full line-up consists of active players (i.e. players who are not injured, on bye, on IR, retired, dead, in jail, suspended, etc.).


Collusion is strictly prohibited. "Collusion" happens when two or more teams in the league conspire together to effect some outcome in the league, whether by trades (team stacking) or otherwise (easy wins, multi-team ownership, etc.).  A charge of collusion is extremely grave and should only be made regarding a situation that is blatant.  In such instance, the commissioner will review the situation and if he or she deems that there is a clear basis for the charge, put the matter to a league vote.  If all managers (other than those charged with collusion) deem the situation as collusion per a vote, then the colluding managers will be removed from the league without refund.  If the commissioner is part of the alleged collusion, there will be no commissioner review of the charge, which will automatically go to a league-wide vote (excluding those charged with collusion).

12.0 Commissioner Powers

Role of Commissioner

The commissioner will have the responsibility to operate this league, in accordance with these bylaws. That said, the commissioner is only human and sometimes mistakes are made or violations are over-looked. It's up to everyone in the league to recognize mistakes and violations and report them to the commissioner. Any mistake or error that goes unnoticed is the fault of everyone in the league, not just the commissioner.

Because of the inability to include all possible scenarios in these rules, the commissioner will also assume the governing position for the league. If any issues, ambiguities, loop holes or other problems come up, the commissioner will address the issue to the league, seek input and then determine the best course of action.   Any such course of action can be overturned by an 12 of 16 vote. In such instance, the issue will be submitted to three unaffiliated DLF forum members who will publicly review the situation and make a ruling. Any such ruling can be overturned by an 12 of 16 league vote, in which case the matter would again be reviewed by three different, unaffiliated DLF posters.

In the event that any issue, ambiguity, loop hole or other problem relates directly to the commissioner, then the issue will be submitted to three unaffiliated DLF forum members, who will craft a set of proposals.

Replacing the Commissioner

The commissioner can be replaced at any time by a 12 of 16 league vote.

13.0 Communications & Awards


All managers are required to submit their first names, as anonymity breeds incivility.

All must sign-up for the league’s GroupMe account (or a similar chat-platform designated by the commissioner), unless an exception applies.

League Awards

During Week 17 of the NFL season, the league will vote on a variety of league awards.These include “Manager of the Year”, “Best Trade of the Year”, “Best FA Pickup of the Year”, “Worst Trade of the Year”.  Each award winner will receive a late 3rd round rookie pick (3.17 – 3.20, respectively).

14.0 Disbanding of League

The league can be disbanded at any time by a 12 of 16 league vote. The league can also be disbanded by the commissioner, provided that commissioner must provide amble notice and allow other managers the opportunity to “step-in” and assume the commissioner role. In case the league disbands, fees and deposits will be returned to the managers that paid them.

15.0 Rule Changes


Any rule change will require 75% support (so 12 out of 16).  Rule changes are voted on during the early pre-season and, if passed, come into force the subsequent season (unless it’s a minor, non-competition rule, as determined by the commissioner in advance of voting).Rule changes cannot alter a fundamental aspect (e.g. adding IDP, removing Superflex, change in fees, changing voting thresholds, etc.) of the league, without the commissioner’s approval.


All rule changes that pass the voting process set forth above will be set forth below, including a general description of the rule change and the date it was voted on.

  • Rule Change 1:
  • Rule Change 2:
  • Rule Change 3:

16.0 Miscellaneous

If a manager is removed, dies, is incapacitated, goes AWOL, leaves the league or otherwise is or becomes unavailable, the commissioner will attempt to source a suitably qualified replacement. If this happens during an auction or draft, the auction or draft will be suspended. If this happens in-season, the commissioner will set starting line-ups to the best of his or her abilities until a replacement manager is found.

While this league may draft on or before GEDL in 2020 and beyond, we will not do so publicly.  Results of our rookie draft in 2020 and beyond will be shared after GEDL does its thing on the DLF forum, as this league is not meant to steal GEDL's thunder in any way.
