Baseball/Football/Basketball League Openings & Writer Openings
To introduce our organization to those we are new to I will give a quick back story about the organization. Back in 2007 I came up with an idea for Major League Fantasy Sports. I started creating new league designs because I grew bored with the run of the mill standard set up in all three sports. We started out with one league in each sport and now we are up to ten total. After four years of testing models I then created majorleaguefantasysports.com, and our social media platform (YouTube, Twitter, Facebook) in late December 2011. We started doing our own live radio shows on Blogtalk Radio back in 2014 with Baseball and Football. Our writing staff fluctuates between 8 to 14 writers depending on the time of the year. We recently started our monetization with our Patreon account. We want to keep our website ad free and be self-sufficient.
Our baseball leagues are keeper/redraft set up. The scoring formula lends itself to activity and what we consider a more accurate contest based on your decision-making ability, drafting ability, and trade skills. 16 teams, 16 categories, H2H, and one points based league. We came up a new scheduling concept for our points based league in 2015 in which you play every team every week. It eliminates the luck of the schedule and it also makes a deadbeat not changing his lineup moot. It’s fun to play to be sure. I linked the settings above. Going into next season I should have 5 openings split up between the 4 leagues. We will have these filled by October so get with me and I can show you some of the teams that may be open.
Our football leagues are also keeper/redraft set up. The most fun I have with our football leagues is our IDP set up. You put 11 men in your starting line up every week. It adds a fun dimension to watching your match up. Most IDP set ups are “tackle heavy” systems. Ours is more based on the big play concept. However, we don’t discount the tackle either. Two of the five leagues also use the play every team every week concept. This works the best in football in my opinion. I linked the settings above. I currently have 1 team open in our league. We draft that league Wednesday September 6th at 9pm EST. This is our only complete redraft league so all players are available. Also, we are in a time crunch so I am willing to eat 20% of the buy in.
Our basketball league is still a work in progress, but we have a very good concept. The league is 14 teams, 2 keepers, 12 man roster, 8 starters, and a 3 man DL. There are 12 categories in which 5 of them are ratios. This ensures that as an owner you just don’t want to make blind plug and plays. Chasing those counting stats may destroy those ratios. So it is a lot of fun and managing your match ups is the key here. There are 3 open teams for 2017/2018 season which will be here before we know it.
We are currently looking for one football writer to join the staff for some in-season writing. I will also be looking for one or two baseball writers to join the staff for next season.
SIDE NOTE: Brad McKenney one of our writers and editors was just hired by the Minnesota Twins as a scout.
