draft dasher etiquette

League rules designed to prevent draft dashing and to minimize its impact. For example, some leagues institute draft dasher rules so when a team fails to submit a lineup one week, the owner is noted but is given a pass. If the owner fails to submit a lineup for a second week, the league commissioner or organizer starts that team's best lineup for the rest of the season. If that team needs a free agent addition to submit a full starting lineup due to byes or injuries, the league makes sure they get the player they need through the waiver wire. Ultimately, this rule is aimed at reducing the weeks that one league team gets an easy win because another owner can't start a full lineup which ruins the integrity and morale of the league when some teams make the playoffs due to draft dashers apathy.

Another draft dasher rule is that an owner whose team has to be taken over by the league cannot come back the next year to ensure a true competition and not a walkover.
