Match your basketball strategy and sports
management skills with friends. Determine through weekly
FBL scoring who drafts manages the best professional basketball
team. Points are awarded based on actual scores made by
NBA season. Play head to head against other FBL teams until
a league champion is crowned.
Prior to the start of the NBA season, franchise
owners hold a draft. Each franchise owner drafts a total
of 11 players and 1 head coach from current NBA rosters.
franchise submits a starting lineup of 5 players and 1 head
coach to the Commissioner prior to tip-off of the first
game of the NBA week. After week one, if no starting lineup
is submitted, the Commissioner assumes the franchise has
no lineup changes. The starting lineup consists of one of
each of the above positions (center, power forward, small
forward, shooting guard, point guard and head coach).
As with real NBA team, NBA franchise owners can trade
or transfer one or more NBA players from one franchise to
another. Trades must be finalized in time for the weekly
lineup exchange. No trades are allowed during the last 4
weeks of the season. Once a player has been traded, he must
stay on the new roster 3 weeks.
The league Commissioner must confirm all trades.
All trades will cost $1.00 each.
A franchise owner may also waive a player
on his/her current roster and add a non-roster player from
the Available Players List throughout the season.
All waivers will cost $1.00 each.
A franchise owner may place a valued NBA
player from his team on Injured Reserve only if the real
NBA team has this player placed on IR. The franchise owner
may then draft another player at the position from the Available
Players List. One the NBA team takes this player off IR,
the franchise owner must do so as well. The owner must then
decide whether to keep the formally injured player or the
replacement player. Up to 4 IR moves may be done per franchise
in a season.
FBL scoring is based on actual plays and
performances made by NBA players each week during the NBA
season. Only players listed as starters for each franchise
receive points for that franchise.
Supplemental Draft - NBA t-shirt may be
drafted in the place of a NBA player. Only one t-shirt
will be available per draft league. The FBL Franchise
will then pick their final player after the draft is over.
Teams winning out of FBL Fantasy dollars
will be frozen in bidding until their next draft position,
at which time, their most valuable player will be sold
at the auction. Money - 10% will back to the previous
owner of the rights to the player and their bidding highs
will become frozen so they may fill their roster.
