Using a 162 point CAP system, here are the general team building rules (varies during fantasy seasons, however).
CAP Tier breakdown:
Golds: Min 2 per team; Max 5 per team
Max 4 Golds per side of the ball
Silvers: Min 3 per team - Max 8 per team
Min 1 Silver per side of the ball
Min 1 Bronze per team
EDIT 7/28: You are permitted to have an additional 7 points (169) if:
You participated in the previous season
Complete the necessary games to be eligible for the upcoming season
Records are now an input and point changes will adjust accordingly to this rule!
Max 2 restricted abilities on team (1 per CAP) and are not permitted on coppers. Restricted abilities come at the cost of 3x that or any other ability (unless used on a Bronze).
Restricted abilities are:
Each ability can be used 3x on each side of the ball except for the following:
Any Restricted ability (max 1x total)
Leadership Bonus and Clutch 1x on each side of the ball
Note: 1 additional Leadership Bonus and/or Clutch ability can be used on each side of the ball ONLY if it is used on a lineman (OL/DL)
Forbidden abilities & ability combinations (not to be confused with Restricted Abilities) - these cannot be used under any circumstances:
No clutch on WRs and TEs
Laser Arm and Rocket Arm cannot be used unless on a Bronze QB
High Helmet Tackle & Bump Master on any player
No Signal Stealer
Speed Burner only on Gold tiers
Any Gold tier player returning kicks/punts MUST have the 'Return Specialist' ability. Silver, Bronze, and Copper tiers do not need the 'Return Specialist' ability.
A manual attribute boost is permitted on QB (any tier) agility ONLY if the QB has BOTH: 'Mobile QB (84 Speed)' AND 'Quick Feet' abilities. IF both these abilities are used, then it is permitted to manually increase QB Agility to a flat value of 87 with Speed set at a flat value of 84.
The spreadsheet takes MOST of these rules into account automatically! The only rules you have to keep track of yourself are the 'Forbidden abilities & ability combinations'. Other rules listed previously can be checked quickly by looking at the ability counter to the right of the spreadsheet (pictured below):
You'll notice that 'Branching Tackles' and 'Tough in the Middle' are colored red; 'Clutch' is colored yellow; and all other abilities are uncolored. When reviewing the counter, please keep note of the coloring of the count of each ability:
As written, yellow means you need to review your ability assignment and check against the rules listed above. Red means you've violated the rules and need to review and re-assign the ability(ies) per the rules above. Uncolored counts mean that the ability assignment meets the rules.
This same color coding applies to the Tier and Point counters at the bottom of the spreadsheet:
If there is anything wrong with the spreadsheet where something isn't working or is not consistent with the rules listed above, please either PM me or @tjspeaks directly, or post in this thread with attention to @tjspeaks and @HeavyHitter55.
If there are any questions in general, please post or PM me directly!
