Welcome to Scout Fantasy Football Beginner Leagues!

These are money leagues so we don't allow the mess of trades, one-sided trades or vetoing of trades.

These Scout Fantasy Beginner Leagues are offered in two different types.

Full Season - Set your Weekly lineups and add Weekly Free Agents. (20 man rosters - 20 rounds of drafting)

Draft Only - No Lineups - No Waivers - Just Draft. (24 man rosters - 24 rounds of drafting

In Draft Only leagues, weekly starting lineups are optimized each week for each team after the games are completed. Team requires NO IN-Season Management.

Free Agent Acquisition Bidding - This isn't your home league where your buddy hears big news on a player and scoops them up off the waiver wire before you get home from work. The Scout Fantasy format employs something called FAAB. It stands for Free Agent Acquisition Bidding.

Each week you are given two opportunities to add players to your team (Wed night at 9pm and Friday night at 9pm). You are given $1,000 "BID BUCKS" (these are fake dollars) to last you the whole entire year. Run out, and you're done adding free agents, so spend it wisely. Weekly bids can range from $1 to $1,000. When some unknown RB breaks out after week one for 80 and 2 Touchdowns, you have to decide how much he's worth to your team and bid accordingly.
On Wednesday at 9pm EDT, "waivers run" and you will find out the results. If you didn't get the guys you wanted, you still have another chance on Friday night to get somebody to cover that bye week or injury. We will release a few video tutorials this year that help explain this so you can master your weekly Blind Bidding opportunities.

Wednesdays: Open to all available free agent players.
Fridays: Open to all available free agent players – not to players dropped on Wednesday.

Bidding Starts: September 10, 2014 (prior to the start of Week 2)
Bidding Ends: The last bid period is between NFL weeks 12 and 13, November 28, 2014.
Locked Players: Players cut after NFL week 10 (November 12th on) cannot be re-acquired by any team in that league.

There is no LIVE Commissioner for these leagues so please have a stable internet connection available when drafting otherwise you'll get the top of your que for missed picks. After that, the computer takes the next player available.
