What Is a Redraft League?
Single-year leagues are sometimes called "redraft leagues" because you draft a new team from scratch every year. This is the most common type of traditional fantasy football. Owners take turns selecting players during the draft until each owner has a roster of 18 real-life NFL players for their team. Then, each week of the NFL season you select players to be in your starting lineup, and these players contribute to an overall game score. We have several different lineups for you to choose from.
What is Bestball Fantasy Football Scoring?
Any league can be a bestball league, whether redraft or some form of multi-year league. "Bestball" simply means that you don't have to set lineups each week. The computer automatically selects those players who scored the highest from your team.
For many people, the selection of starting players each week is an agonizing decision. Footballs bounce in crazy directions, so it's hard to guess which players will perform best each week, and one wrong guess can easily cost you the game. Bestball leagues remove the agony of choosing, while preserving team-improvement activities like waivers and trading.
What Is a Draftmaster League?
In draftmaster leagues, you don't have to make any decisions after the draft. No free agency, no trading, no setting lineups. Draftmaster leagues are bestball leagues, so the computer selects the optimal lineup for you each week.
Draftmaster leagues are for owners who don't want to be bothered with the day-to-day maintenance of their leagues. Often called one-and-done leagues or draft-n-go leagues, it's possible to participate in many more simultaneous draftmaster leagues than other formats because owner involvement is over as soon as the draft ends.
How Do Contender Leagues Work?
Want to aim a little higher than a twelve- or fourteen-team league? You're looking for a contender league, then. In this format, four leagues of twelve teams are joined at the hip. You'll play each of the other teams in your own twelve-team league, and then have a short one-week playoff within your league to determine the four teams which will advance further.
The four advancing teams then join the best teams from your three sister leagues to form a sixteen-team four-week playoff race competing for a grand prize. This means you're essentially joining a 48-team contest, making for a more exciting prize fund.
How Do Guillotine Leagues Work?
These are "last man standing" leagues, and the 16-week season is divided into two phases:  An accumulation phase, during which teams compete to earn additional blind bidding money to bid on players, and  an elimination phase, during which the lowest-scoring team each week is eliminted from contention. The league lasts until all teams but one have been eliminated, when the final team standing is crowned the champion.
When a team is eliminated, all players from that team get placed back on the waiver wire for other teams to bid on.
