That’s it! As soon as we get the link and confirm items 1 and 2, you will get Edge turned on for the season. Continue reading “Free Competitive Edge”

QOTW: Email Draft Time Limits

Question of the Week: Can we set an email draft time limit?

Answer: We don’t currently have this as a draft option. As a workaround, the Commish could communicate a time limit to the league. If an owner then goes past the allotted time limit, the Commish can determine what player goes to that team by going to the “Players” tab and clicking “Commish Draft” in order to keep the draft moving.

QOTW: All-Star Games Scheduling

Question of the Week: Is it possible to combine weeks on Fleaflicker given holiday shortened/all-star week?

Answer: In daily sports (MLB, NBA, and NHL), a short week may be combined with the next week only at the start or end of a season. (From the Owner’s Manual)

One thing that Commissioners can do is to remove match-ups for the week of the All-Star festivities altogether, so that it’s a “bye week” of sorts for the league. No fantasy games happen in your league that week, so no owners can be affected negatively. The Commish can make this adjustment by utilizing League Settings > Edit Regular Season Schedule.

QOTW: Resetting Draft Rankings

Question of the Week: I’ve set custom rankings for a draft, but want to reset to Flea default.

Answer: Here’s how you can reset back to a default ranking:

– From the draft ranking page, click the blue drop-down in the top right and select one of the built-in rankings (Edge subscribers will have some extra options here, FYI)

– Click Save to reset your rankings to this list

Game of Bids: Introducing the Fantasy Football Bidwar

bidwarart2

Fleaflicker Commissioner Loubonz introduced us to the concept of the bidwar this preseason and we’re excited share the idea with the Fleaflicker community. If auction-style drafting appeals to you, this may be right up your alley.

What is a “bidwar”?

Basically, a bidwar allows owners to bid on available free agents, working within a fixed budget and with a specific deadline, with the goal of filling open roster spots. It could be just the spice you are looking to add to your league this preseason.

How it works:

  1. Continue reading “Game of Bids: Introducing the Fantasy Football Bidwar”

QOTW: Resetting Traded Draft Picks

Question of the Week: I was wondering if you could reset the draft pick trades in my league. I am trying to restart this league after some teams left and would like to clear the trades like I did with the rosters. I am writing to see if you could do it for me because I don’t see a way for me to.

Answer: You have two options for reverting traded draft picks.

1) You can have the teams trade back the picks. (This only works though if you have active, willing owners to participate.) Continue reading “QOTW: Resetting Traded Draft Picks”
