Welcome to the Chamber Franchise League (CFLespn) 4th season at ESPN sponsored by Webpage Creations having their own league webpage on the Internet for years to come. This year is roster expansion year as the league has made a decision to now include defensive players added to team rosters. The expansion will include as starters 2 (DL) lineman, 2 (LB) linebackers, 2 (DB) corner/safety and the bench will increase from 8 to 11 players with the IR staying at 4.
The live draft scheduled for Friday, August 29, 2015 at 8:15 p.m. (EDT) will now increase to 17-rounds with each team having selected 9 pre-draft keepers.
The league schedule 2015 consists of 2 divisional round robin games during game periods 4 - 6 and 11 - 13 to end the regular season. In game periods 1 - 3 and 7 - 10 each team plays against a non-divisional opponent.
This league ends in week 16 when the league champion is crowned. The regular season will be played during weeks 1 - 13. The playoffs start week 14 for 3 weeks with 8 of the 16 teams making the playoffs with each division winner plus 4 wildcards based on team overall record and tie breaker by offensive fp scored. The league teams ranked 9 - 16 will also have their 3 week playoffs with the winner receiving the blue medal award displayed in the league trophy room.
This fantasy is a keeper franchise league with the main objective to be: Each franchise team must select 7 players from franchise team, (offense & defense) plus the kicker of the franchise team, and the franchise team defense/special team = 9 keepers for pre-drafting. Then throughout the course of the season each franchise team must have 7 franchise players (either offense/defense) and the franchise defense on roster (start, bench, or InjRes = 8 at all times. The kicker may be cut and resigned by another (NFL) team.
