The League Manager (LM) is the title of the creator of a League Manager league.
As the league creator, the LM has the power to customize the league rules to create the fantasy league of their dreams. The default ruleset is identical to the standard ESPN Fantasy leagues available to the public. The LM then gets to decide what options to add/remove, adjust points, add/remove roster or IL slots, veto or upholds trade, set the schedule, draft date/time/type, and more.
Please note: Removing IL/roster slots is ONLY available BEFORE draft. Once the draft has ended, LMs can only add slots. To learn more on when each type of settings is locked, please visit here
Few things to remember regarding LM powers/LM leagues:
- Because these leagues are highly customized, they are private. This means that the only way to join one is to be invited by the LM via email.
- LM is the ultimate authority for all aspects of their league, including but not limited to league business, player trades, infractions of these rules and disputes among team managers.
- The LM will investigate all overall winners for collusion before awarding overall prizes and it has the right to disqualify team managers or remove them from the leaderboard if deemed necessary.
- All decisions of the LM shall be final and irreversible. The LM has the right to make ANY necessary changes to the league. Any changes will be properly noted on the league's homepage.
