   Welcome to the 8th season at fantrax for the Elite Fantasy League (EFL) that's sponsored by Webpage Creations with their own league webpage on the Internet for years to come.  In all total this is actually Season 11 of the league with the first 3 years being played at FOX Sports with standings in League History page.

        Changes in 2016 include addition of 5-starting players and one added bench increasing the roster to 26-players. Each team will now be able to start 2 RB, 3 WR, 2 DL, 2 LB and 2 CB along with 1 QB, 1 TE, 1 R/W/T, 1 K and 1 Def Team or 16 starters.

      The regular season schedule has each team to play 10 inter-conference games or 2 times against inter-conference opponents and three (3) outer conference matchups (weeks 6 - 8) against teams in the other conference.  The 3 outer conference opponents not played in 2015 will replace the 3 outer conference opponents played for the 2016 regular season.

      The lock date for 6-keeper players is Wednesday, Aug 24, 2016 or 3 days before the live draft with the draft order the result of final regular season standings in 2015.

     The trading deadline is set: Tuesday, Nov 1, 2016.

     As for the 8-team playoff format, in week #15 the lowest seed vs the highest seed team in the semifinals.

       In week 17 all teams will place their best available lineup to battle for the game 17 high fantasy point total with the winner team name placed on the new Eliteship Award.

     At fantrax the support software and their score keeper have what is called Stat Corrections that results in the changing of scores of games later in the week. Stat Correction Handling: No Official Scoring changes will affect your league beyond the default stat freeze time. This default day/time is 8pm ET on Wednesday. Before that time, official corrections will apply to your league from the previous week. Corrections that come in after that time will not be reflected in your league's stats/scores/standings.
