20 teams divided into 2 separate leagues (AL only and NL only) each divided into 2 divisions (East and West) of 5 teams each. The 10 AL teams consist of AL players only and the 10 NL teams of NL players only. Playoffs are AL and NL specific; the 1st place teams in each division make the playoffs along with the next 2 teams with the best record in the AL and NL irrespective of division. The AL and NL winner then advance to a traditional AL vs. NL World Series. Select 5-15 players from your existing active roster. Each kept player's salary (except drafted prospects for which there are special rules) for 2016 will be either $2 (affiliated team keeper discount) or $4 (for all other keepers) higher than the auction or waiver price paid in the previous year. NO increase for any player drafted for $5 or less that remained on the owner's active roster for the entire 2015 season. The total of these players' salaries will be deducted from your team's $260 auction budget. See complete Rules posted on league message board for more information.
  • Select your league's Regular Season and Playoff Bracket settings.

Draft Type
Your league conducts its own offline draft and you submit the results manually.
Your league will participate in a live online draft with ESPN's live draft software. Based on a predetermined draft order, each team takes a turn selecting a player in a set amount of time. This type of draft is sometimes called a Snake Draft, as the draft order reverses each round.
Your league's rosters are automatically drafted based on each team's pre-draft rankings list. Each team owner will receive an email upon the draft's completion.
Your league will participate in a live online auction draft using ESPN's auction draft software. In an auction draft, teams begin with a set budget and take turns nominating players to be auctioned off to the highest bidder.
