    <u>Lineup violations</u>

    The current system for addressing lineup violations is neither efficient nor fair. In the 18 DFWC leagues I am in, 14 different teams finished the season in violation of this rule. That is simply too many violators. Because of the uneven reporting and enforcement, as well as the lack of any significant penalties for constant/repeat offenders, I recommend a multifaceted fix for the problem.

    • Have a special dedicated email address for players to report lineup violations. Make it clear that any reports received prior to the Friday FA deadline will be deleted. Make sure that it is checked and addressed on Saturday, prior to any NFL games.
    • Everyone makes an occasional mistake, but some people are chronic violators of the rules. For those who break the rules over and over again, I propose the following system for each separate team:
      1. First Offense: Player dropped and another added by the administrator for the cost of 1 FAAB dollar.
      2. Second Offense: Player dropped and another added by the administrator for the cost of 10 FAAB dollars.
      3. Third offense: Player dropped and another added by the administrator for the cost of 100 FAAB dollars.

    If the player is out of FAAB for any of the 1<sup>st</sup> three penalties, the proceed to the 4<sup>th</sup> offense penalty.

    1. Fourth Offense: Player dropped and another added by the administrator for the cost of a 6<sup>th</sup> Round Pick.
    2. Fifth Offense: Player dropped and another added by the administrator for the cost of a 5<sup>th</sup> Round Pick. Also at this point, the administrator should have a frank discussion with the chronic offender about the possibilities of more dire consequences if the behavior continues.

    An alternative option has been gaining popularity in the Fantasy Football community for some time. ELIMINATE THE PK AND DEF/ST positions entirely. Since both positions are notoriously unpredictable from year to year, many feel that they do not accurately reflect player skill and are more a product of blind luck. Since most non-compliant DFWC rosters seem to involve these two positions, it could solve a large percentage of these problems. If player pool size/availability is a concern, the fix would be to reduce active roster sizes to 18 plus 3 IR.

    Great suggestions Ray. Thanks for the feedback.

    If one is out of FAAB, how would this work?  I had a team with two TEs that were out for the year.  If penalties are to be imposed, picking up players with no FAAB should be allowed imo…

    btw, I actually tried to make a trade to get a TE, even though we were “out of it”, but to no avail…
