Fixed your title, but I don't understand the $500. New player fee $200, plus I guess some transaction fees during the season?

Seems like a good return, paying 5 places. I missed how many total players you have with a full group. 20 or so?
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Thank you for fixing that.

$200 entry fee plus ~$250 in transaction fees is ~$500 in total cost.

● Players available in draft : Trout, Arenado, Scherzer, Kershaw, Correa, Bryant, Betts, Lindor, Greinke, Strasburg (very likely) Aroldis Chapman (he was a top 40 scorer in our league 2 seasons ago) and others as well.
