inPoints & ProFSL Invitationals

What are inPoints?
These are points that each member can earn during each sport's season.  These points are collected for all leagues and members, and the top portion of members in a sport will be invited to the ProFSL Invitational.

Alright, what is an Invitational?
The Invitational is a head-to-head fantasy league that is free to enter but awards cash and other prizes :money: at the end of the year based on the size of the sport in the community.  From 2009 through 2012, the Invitational was a short tournament, but in 2013 the concept changed to a season-long league to give the event greater presence.  The more inPoints a member has from the previous season (in a given sport), the higher their seed will be in an Invitational.  These leagues are setup so higher seeds have advantages such as better draft selection, first choice, and higher budgets.

Okay, how do I get some inPoints?
Easy!  You can accrue inPoints several ways.
  • A majority of inPoints are earned through league participation.  Each league within ProFSL's community leagues will receive points based on their activity at the end of a sport's season.  The Commissioner distributes these points according to ProFSL guidelines in an effort to award successful teams and active participants of the league.
  • Regularly participate in our discussion forums.  Top participating members are noted each month in a stickied thread at the top of each sport's discussion forum.  Note that posting new topics carries the most weight since it sparks conversation.
  • Recruit members to ProFSL.  If you recruit someone to the site through word of mouth, email, posting a classified, social media, or any other means then respond to our official recruiters tracking thread.  Since these are not specific to an individual sport, you can build up a bank of credits and exchange them for inPoints when you are ready!


Earning inPoints through Tournaments
As mentioned, you can earn inPoints by participating in leagues, but this also applies to tournaments.  From time to time, we will have contests and tournaments (mostly fantasy league style), and the top participants will receive inPoints for that sport.  Below is a history of Invitationals and tournaments at ProFSL as well as awards given to leagues and Commissioners.

League of the Year
Sport sections of ProFSL have changed over time.  For example, inPoints for NBA and NCAAB leagues used to bucketed for the same Invitational (NBA) whereas now they are separate.  The awards for League of the Year (and Commissioner of the Year below) were also handled in this manner.

  • Scalious: He'll be fun to watch in what limited innings we see him id think
    May 27, 2016, 06:11:37 PM
  • Jonathan: De Leon should be primed to have a significant role this year. He has only pitched 5 innings this year, so far.
    May 27, 2016, 06:51:10 PM
  • Jonathan: They built him up to almost 120 last year.

  • Scalious: Ha. I remember giving him a MLB contract
    May 27, 2016, 07:05:30 PM
  • Scalious: Mostly as a defensive move to keep him out of JPs hands
    May 27, 2016, 07:05:57 PM
  • Jonathan: Yeah, his value would be sky high if he had control and in minors. Not so much on a MLB deal.
    May 27, 2016, 07:10:46 PM
  • Jonathan: I tend to leave no money for latter on in year. I am in same boat this year. That is why I recently bid up a bunch of guys scoring points over waiting for j2 guys. I know teams have way too much cap for me to stand a chance lol
    May 27, 2016, 07:16:58 PM
  • cjbeckel: Jonathan, you sold me damaged goods, Cain couldn't even last two innings
    May 27, 2016, 11:30:13 PM
  • Jonathan: Coors field buddy. I told you that. Dont feel bad, I inherited Rockies to start with. No pitchers.
    May 27, 2016, 11:32:17 PM
  • Jonathan: I also inherited that farm way before it was good  :doh:
    May 27, 2016, 11:32:58 PM
  • Jonathan: Cain pulled his hammy.
    May 27, 2016, 11:33:51 PM

  • Scalious: Espically in a league where TOR arms are king
    Yesterday at 12:57:15 AM
  • Scalious: Those huge negatives for pitchers giving up HRs can be killer in week to week
    Yesterday at 12:58:25 AM
  • Jonathan: The best hope is that they get traded to better place. Like Pomeranz
    Yesterday at 01:08:12 AM
  • cjbeckel: Really the only kind of pitcher that can make it in Denver is a guy like Ubaldo Jimenez
    Yesterday at 01:12:25 AM
  • cjbeckel: He had great movement on his pitches, especially down in the strike zone.  It was really hard to hit homers on that guy
    Yesterday at 01:15:29 AM
  • Jonathan: Rams have worst abbreviation in pro sports. I though it was a college. LARM
    Yesterday at 09:06:37 AM
  • Jonathan: Pretty sure LA would of been fine. Last I checked, there is only one team there.
    Yesterday at 09:07:41 AM
  • themarksman13: Why not just LAR?
    Yesterday at 03:54:37 PM
  • cjbeckel: Four of the top five SP in ML scoring will be free agents this offseason (Kershaw, Arrieta, Sale and Strasburg)!!
    Yesterday at 03:59:47 PM
  • cjbeckel: Hey Scals are you the owner of Boston and looking for a GM or is it an open team?
    Yesterday at 08:48:19 PM
  • Scalious: If someone wants to buy it. They can!
    Yesterday at 09:24:22 PM
  • Scalious: Obivously not built to win this year. But stocked up the farm and tons of future cap to work with..
    Yesterday at 09:26:55 PM
  • cjbeckel: What is the payment status for :BOS: ?
    Yesterday at 10:46:24 PM
  • Scalious: Its Currently paid for this year at least
    Yesterday at 10:48:56 PM
  • cjbeckel: I could pay 2017 and onward for :BOS: if there is a good GM out there...
    Yesterday at 11:16:29 PM
  • cjbeckel: Is there a good GM out there??
    Yesterday at 11:16:50 PM

    Yesterday at 11:21:28 PM
  • Scalious: I hired a guy..but he made 1-2 apperances so far
    Yesterday at 11:22:21 PM
  • Jonathan: He wanted Dansby, but wasn't willing to include any top prospects.  :P
    Yesterday at 11:26:20 PM
  • Jonathan: I want your best guy, buy so and so can't be in deal. Funny stuff.
    Yesterday at 11:27:04 PM
  • cjbeckel: Jonathan gave a similar response regarding Jimmie in the new Payment Tracker Thread.  Well let’s give him a chance.  I’m open to helping out if we need to have an owner for that team moving forward.  In the meantime, it looks like we have a full 30 team league then!
    Yesterday at 11:28:40 PM
  • cjbeckel: You cant deny that Dansby is a stud
    Yesterday at 11:30:27 PM
  • Jonathan: Yeah, but looking deeper.... he hasn't been on site since the 17th
    Yesterday at 11:30:48 PM
  • cjbeckel: Well, that was only 11 days ago, let's see what happens
    Yesterday at 11:35:23 PM
  • Jpsprague10: I would put the :COL: owner in the same boat. I've never looked for a replacement because CJ foots the bill. But he is/has always been a ghost.
    Today at 12:27:02 AM
  • Jpsprague10: I typically start monitering activity around this time so we have an idea of how much may need recruited for.
    Today at 12:32:02 AM
  • cjbeckel: Yes, Mike showed great promise and did a good job on cleaning up the roster.  I have been hopeful that he would return, but he has not logged in since Feb.  He put the ROX in a great position to move forward.  If he does not return this year I will consider him MIA, and do the work of rebuilding the ROX myself because :SEA: is far more marketable.
    Today at 12:37:35 AM
  • cjbeckel: Not everyone is as great as Calvin in :TEX:
    Today at 12:38:28 AM
  • cjbeckel: I personally really liked Mike, I hope he returns this year.  When here he is a very good member of ML
    Today at 12:43:39 AM
  • cjbeckel: Is Nick still the person we need to send payment to every year or has that changed?
    Today at 12:57:19 AM
  • Jonathan: Dodgers Chase Utley playing the villain role like a boss in New York.
    Today at 06:03:21 AM
  • Jonathan: Astros have 1-6 record in Dallas Keuchel’s last 7 starts. 2015 Cy Young winner has 0-5 (7.56) ERA allowing .333 BA in this stretch
    Today at 06:03:59 AM
