This article details the various Daily fantasy football leagues, Weekly fantasy football leagues, and Monthly fantasy football leagues offered at Maximum Fantasy Sports. All of the leagues listed require a fee but pay out 90% of the league fees collected.
As the pre-season winds down and the last of the Full-season Redraft and Keeper Leagues are drafted, attention turns to the latest craze in fantasy football; Daily and Weekly Fantasy Football leagues. Since we strive to provide our customers with a one-stop shop for all their fantasy football needs, we do offer these league types. Of course, we do them OUR way! We are not fans of Salary Cap leagues so we have different Daily/Weekly/Monthly leagues to provide you with more enjoyment. This season's Daily/Weekly/Monthly leagues for Week 1 are outlined below. Email us if you have any questions about how to play. Enjoy!
Traditional leagues – a Total Points league featuring the most widely-accepted positions and scoring system: 1 QB, 2 RBs, 3 WR/TE, 1 RB/WR swing, 1 TE, 1 D, 1 K. You can find draft and non-draft leagues of different sizes and fees/payouts. Full configuration settings are found on the Open Leagues page.
PPR leagues – a Total Points league that resembles the Traditional league but the scoring system awards a point per reception and RB/WR TDs drop to 4 points each with bonuses awarded (extra 1 or 2 points) for longer TDs. You can find draft and non-draft leagues of different sizes and fees/payouts. Full configuration settings are found on the Open Leagues page.
TD Only leagues – a Total Points is a big departure from Traditional fantasy leagues and harken back to the days of scoring on paper when the Commissioner made life easy on himself and only needed to score points for Touchdowns. TD scoring only is what you will find here so you won’t have to worry about drafting any idiot kickers. TD points vary with the distant of the touchdown. You can find draft and non-draft leagues of different sizes and fees/payouts. Full configuration settings are found on the Open Leagues page.
Injury-Proof leagues - a Total Points league that resembles the Traditional league but a Team Quarterback is used in place of an individual QB, In-game changes are allowed by Half and you can add 2 players to your bench. It is strongly recommended to use a bench RB and a bench WR from late games as injury replacements should one occur early enough in his game to allow for changing his 2nd half. Roster changes are made from the Game Roster link on the Team home page. The twist in this league is you will be able to change players at the half. This helps if you have a player that is hurt or underperforming. Of course, the first half is locked in already and you will only be able to replace the second half with another player’s half that is currently open (either first or second half). You can find draft and non-draft leagues of different sizes and fees/payouts. Full configuration settings are found on the Open Leagues page.
4-week Frenzy leagues - 10-team Live Draft Total Points league that runs for 4 weeks. These will be staggered throughout the year for those looking for a shorter-term league that requires more skill than luck to win. The league set-up resembles the Traditional league but an additional starting RB/WR swing position is added and the scoring system matches the standard except for ranges for the kicking and defensive statistics. The leagues that will start in week 1 will end in week 4, when the Bye weeks begin. Leagues that are fully immersed in Bye weeks will have the Bye Week Rollover feature added to their league configuration. Full configuration settings for leagues starting in week 1 are found here.
