    With M16 released, it is time to plan for the 2015 season kickoff. We will use the 75 man rosters which we will manually update with any recent free agent transactions that may have occurred in the NFL between the date of the M16 release and the initiation of our online CFM.

    Invites to join the CFM will be sent once the franchise has been activated. It is possible that we will wait for the first M16 update AFTER the Tuesday release to initiate the league CFM online. Typically, the first update occurs on the first Friday following release day. The franchise will be initiated at week 1 of the 2015 pre-season. Teams may play their week 1 pre-season game while waiting for the FA waivers period to be completed whether the opponent be human or CPU (injuries will be off).

    All teams will be allowed to process APPROVED TRADES in the franchise. If your trade has yet to be approved, DO NOT PROCESS IT until you receive that approval. Make sure to refresh your memory with the Trade Rule Amendments for M16.
    All rosters will be required to be at 45 minimum / 53 maximum BEFORE we initiate the FA waivers process. The league staff will perform roster cuts for the CPU teams based on positional needs, player overall, salary cap, and roster requirements.
    The following FA waiver claims format applies to the 2015 pre-season ONLY...

    Following the league deadline for teams to cut rosters to the 45 minimum / 53 maximum limit, waivers will be used to claim free agents during the 2015 pre-season. A waivers thread will be started in the forum. Teams will be required to reply to the waiver claims thread to perform FA claims during the waivers period. The parameters for the waivers period will be as follows:

      • The waiver order is based on the 2015 NFL draft order (see below).
      • The waiver order remains static during the entire waivers process.
      • Teams are not required to make any waiver claims.
      • Teams may claim one FA at their designated position of the waiver order.
      • There is no limit to the number of waiver claims that a team may make.
      • The waivers period will conclude when all teams decline making a waiver claim.
      • The staff will perform waiver claims for CPU teams based on 1) position of need, 2) best FA available at position of need, and/or 3) staff discretion.
      • The league staff reserves the right to decline CPU waiver claims at any time.
      • Teams that make a waiver claim must release a player if the FA claimed results in the team exceeding the 53 maximum roster limit.
      • Once a FA has been claimed via waivers the FA must be signed.
      • If necessary, teams will be required to create roster space or cap space to sign the FA claimed.
      • Any FA claimed during the waivers period may be released at any time during the regular season.
      • FA will be first come, first served at the opening of week 1 of the regular season.

    The waiver order is determined by the 2015 NFL draft order as outlined below.


    1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (CPU)
    2. Tennessee Titans (thafuture3886)
    3. Jacksonville Jaguars (CPU)
    4. Oakland Raiders (CPU)
    5. Washington Redskins (Warhawk AKA dreadman)
    6. New York Jets (MoonBBad)
    7. Chicago Bears (CPU)
    8. Atlanta Falcons (AveryB)
    9. New York Giants (CPU)
    10. St. Louis Rams (CPU)
    11. Minnesota Vikings (Nasir)
    12. Cleveland Browns (LtJustice)
    13. New Orleans Saints (CPU)
    14. Miami Dolphins (CPU)
    15. San Francisco 49ers (CHUNKNESS)
    16. Houston Texans (CPU)
    17. San Diego Chargers (CPU)
    18. Kansas City Chiefs (Michael Overman)
    19. Buffalo Bills (Xandozer)
    20. Philadelphia Eagles (CPU)
    21. Cincinnati Bengals (CPU)
    22. Pittsburgh Steelers (CSteud)
    23. Detroit Lions (CPU)
    24. Arizona Cardinals (CPU)
    25. Carolina Panthers (Casino)
    26. Baltimore Ravens (CPU)
    27. Dallas Cowboys (CaptMoe)
    28. Denver Broncos (Triple111's)
    29. Indianapolis Colts (redlishus)
    30. Green Bay Packers (Mugga)
    31. Seattle Seahawks (MrWitness36)
    32. New England Patriots (CPU)
    Whether teams choose to make any waiver claims or not, teams are required to have 53 players on their roster at ALL times during the regular and post seasons. Position changes MUST be posted in the Team Management forum unless it is a lateral move allowed per the depth chart rules. The following is a list of position that are considered interchangeable for purposes of the depth chart:

      • FB > HB = FB can play HB at any time
      • FB > TE = FB can play TE at any time
      • OL > OL = all positions on the offensive line are interchangeable
      • DL > DL = all positions on the defensive line are interchangeable
      • LB = all linebacker positions are interchangeable
      • S = Both safety positions interchangeable
    Beyond the 6 positions listed above; players will NOT be permitted to play out of position via the depth chart unless the team has announced the position change in the forum.

    We will announce when the waiver period will be commencing after we have the game in hand and roster cuts have been completed. Please reply with any Q&A here so that the rest of the league may see the responses as I'm sure we may receive some duplicate questions/answers.

    Good luck! (y)
