Roster Changes Details


The default deadline to make all transactions (trades, waiver claims, and free agent pick-ups) for the following day is 11:59pm PT each night. All transactions will then be reflected in your lineup for the following day.
So, if you add a player to your roster on Wednesday morning at 6:00 am PT, he will be available to your team on Thursday.

Custom League commissioners may choose to keep this deadline, change it so that all transactions take effect on the day they are made or arrange their league so all transactions can only be made on a weekly basis (in all Head-to-Head Leagues, the weekly transaction deadline must be Monday).

If you choose to configure your league to allow transactions to take effect on the day they are made, you will be able to add free agents to your roster for the current day so long as all transactions are completed no later than five minutes before the start of each player's game. None of the players involved in a move can have played or be within five minutes of their game's start time, or the transaction will not be allowed. So, for example, transactions for all players who play at 4:30 pm PT must be completed by 4:25 pm PT.


If you choose to configure your league to use the weekly option, all roster moves made during the week will be reflected in your lineup on that day of the week. In order for a transaction to take effect in a given week, it must be completed by 11:59pm PT on the day before your league's deadline.

So, if you choose to have all lineup changes occur on Sunday, you will need to make all transactions by 11:59pm PT each Saturday.

When you wish to make moves, simply click on the Edit Lineup link. This will take you directly to the following Sunday's lineup page. You can also advance to the Sunday page by clicking on the link showing tomorrow's date and continuing to advance until you reach Sunday.

Then, as you add or drop players from your lineup, you will see the changes reflected in Sunday's lineup. Similarly, any trades completed during the week will not become effective until Sunday nor will any intra-roster moves (i.e., switching players between active and bench).

For all leagues that do not use weekly transactions, all intra-roster moves (switching players between active and bench spots) can be made until five minutes before the start of each player's game. None of the players involved in a move can have played or be within five minutes of their game's start time. So, for example, all players who play at 4:30 pm PT can be moved until 4:25 pm PT on game day.

Also, bear in mind that your league may include a trading deadline. Click on the League Settings link from your league home page to view the configuration of your league. Trade deadlines do not impact the ability to add players via waivers or free agency.

Bucfan,

What I really like and am not sure how it would work in roto is a salary cap for spending on free agents. First that allows everyone a fair shot at a hot player rather than the first person to their computer.

Also, I am not a big fan of "streaming" either however I can attest to the fact that it backfires every bit as much as it helps, maybe more.

And last, I don't think we had keepers until last year so those years I won and finished second there were no keepers...I was just that damn good!!! ha....Oh the good old days.....

This is the third offseason of keepers, so it will be the 4th season some people have been kept.

Did not know that.

Well, in that case, the league should mandate a 3-year limit on keepers. The proviso is that it is three years with the team from date of acquisition.

Hey, none of my guys has been on the team for more than a year. :D

Really? Wow...couldn't have said that. Did we keep 10 all those years? I guess I can't keep very good track of time anymore!

Parrot ... read "The Elegant Universe."

Time is not a constant. Circumstances and perception have a significant effect on time. For example, traveling at 1/2 the speed of light, or residing on or near an object with the mass of a black hole, dramatically affects how time is perceived.

I therefore conclude from your observation that you are either (1) traveling at an extraordinary velocity or (2) living with or yourself are something of enormous mass. :D

Sounds to me like you think and read too much serious stuff.
