Important Update to the AFFL Tracker

We are committed to continuously improving our league's systems to enhance your experience and maintain the highest standard of play. In line with this, we have recently implemented some important updates to the AFFL Tracker that you need to be aware of.

Key Updates

Refined Contract and Financial Formulas

We have fine-tuned the formulas that calculate contracts and financial aspects within the Tracker. These enhancements are aimed at ensuring that all financial dealings and contract statuses are accurate and transparent.

Contract Page Notification

Please pay close attention to the contracts page. Any player who appears greyed out with a strike-through their name must be dropped from your team. This visual cue has been added to make it immediately clear which players' contracts are no longer valid.


Expired Contracts In this case, the contracts for Lamar Jackson, Evan Engram, Nick Chubb, and Patrick Mahomes have expired and they must be released as free agents.

These updates are now live, and we encourage you to log in to the AFFL Tracker at your earliest convenience to familiarize yourself with the new features.

I'm thinking about introducing a new column that indicates the remaining years. My aim is to shift from relative terms to specific dates to minimize confusion, although I encounter the same issue regardless of the approach. 🤷🏻

As always, we are here to support you, so please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or need further clarification on the recent changes.

Thank you for your attention to this matter and for your continued commitment to making our league the best it can be.

Welcome Sully to the AFFL


We are thrilled to announce the newest addition to our league, Brandon Sullivan, affectionately known as Sully! Sully joins us from Winston-Salem, North Carolina, bringing with him a deep passion for football and a wealth of experience in the world of fantasy sports.

Sully's journey to our league has been years in the making, as he has spent the last five years immersing himself in the intricacies of our particular format. His dedication and enthusiasm for the game are evident, and we are excited to welcome someone with such a strong foundation in fantasy sports to our community.

Sully's arrival comes as a result of the recent departure of David Kossatz, who made the decision to step down from his role as manager on January 2nd, 2024. While we are saddened by David's departure, we are grateful for his contributions to the league and wish him the best in his future endeavors.

As we usher in this new chapter with Sully, we invite all members of the league to extend a warm welcome to him. Let's embrace Sully's passion for football and continue to make the AFFL a place where fantasy sports thrive.

Welcome to the league, Sully! We're thrilled to have you on board.

Preventing Collusion in the League

In the epic saga of the Ares Fantasy Football League (AFFL), where strategies clash and heroes rise, maintaining the sanctity of competition is paramount. Collusion, the clandestine alliance between teams to manipulate outcomes or gain unfair advantages, poses a threat to the balance and honor of our league. In this blog post, we delve into the specific safeguards implemented within the AFFL to combat collusion and uphold fair play.

Prohibition of Player "Boomerang" Trades

Within the AFFL, a steadfast rule prohibits the trading of a player back to their original manager within one year. This measure, enshrined in our constitution, aims to thwart any attempts at collusion by preventing teams from engaging in reciprocal trades solely to manipulate player values or exploit loopholes. By imposing a cooldown period on player transactions between the same parties, the AFFL ensures that trades are conducted with integrity and fairness at their core.

Commissioner Review of Trades

Trade evaluations in the AFFL are entrusted to the league commissioner and the deputy commissioner, who also serve as team managers within the league. While not impartial, they endeavor to provide fair and unbiased assessments of trades, guided by their commitment to the league's principles and rules. In cases of uncertainty or potential conflict of interest, the commissioner may seek consultation with the deputy commissioner to ensure a thorough and impartial review process.

Inclusion of All Elements in Trades

To further bolster transparency and prevent collusion, the AFFL mandates that all elements, including players, Free Agent Acquisition Budget (FAAB), and auction budget, must be included in trade transactions. Additionally, trades for future considerations are strictly prohibited, ensuring that all trades are conducted with immediate and tangible implications for participating teams.

Enforcement of Transparency and Accountability

Transparency and accountability serve as pillars of the AFFL's governance structure, enabling swift and thorough responses to suspected instances of collusion. Clear and comprehensive league rules, coupled with effective communication channels, empower members to understand their rights and obligations within the league. Any suspected collusion is promptly reported to the Commissioner, triggering a thorough investigation guided by the principles of fairness and impartiality.

Emphasis on Fair Play and Sportsmanship

Above all, the AFFL champions the values of fair play and sportsmanship as the cornerstone of our league ethos. Through educational initiatives, codes of conduct, and ongoing dialogue, we instill a sense of responsibility and stewardship among members, fostering a culture where collusion is vehemently condemned and fair play is celebrated. Our collective commitment to honor and integrity ensures that the AFFL remains a bastion of competitive yet honorable fantasy football.

Safeguarding the AFFL's Legacy

In conclusion, the Ares Fantasy Football League remains steadfast in its dedication to preserving the integrity of the game. Through specific safeguards such as the prohibition of player "boomerang" trades, meticulous commissioner review of trades, and the inclusion of all elements in trades, the AFFL upholds the highest standards of fair play and sportsmanship. Together, let us continue to write the epic tale of the AFFL, where heroes compete with honor, and the spirit of competition burns brightly in the pantheon of fantasy football.

Managerial Changes in the AFFL

We are writing to inform you of some significant changes within our league. It is with regret that we announce the departure of four esteemed members, which unfortunately occurred amidst discord within our league. Vedran Radojevic (2K), David Kossatz (Fields of Dreams), Trevor Oliviera (Gibb Me a Break), and Neil Norton (Urine Trouble) have decided to step down from their roles as managers under strained circumstances.

While this departure has brought about a sense of upheaval, we want to acknowledge the contributions these individuals have made to the AFFL. Each of them has brought unique skills and strategies, enriching our league experience. Despite the recent discord, we recognize and appreciate their past dedication and sportsmanship.

As we bid farewell to Neil, Ved, Dave, and Trevor, we extend our best wishes for their future endeavors. We hope that they find success in their future pursuits, both within fantasy football and beyond.

Moving forward, we are committed to restoring harmony within the league and ensuring that the AFFL remains a vibrant and engaging community for all members. We will be working diligently to support our existing managers and to foster a positive environment for all.

If you have any questions or concerns about these changes or the league's direction, please don't hesitate to reach out to me directly. Your feedback is crucial as we navigate through this period of transition.

Thank you for your attention, and let's work together to maintain the integrity and spirit of the AFFL.
