New MLB Starting Pitchers Filter

The Rookies Have Landed

All drafted NFL rookies have been added to the Fleaflicker player pool along with a new filter option geared towards making searching for rookies easier!

Now when you visit your league’s player pool, there is a new “experience” filter option. You can switch this drop-down between “rookie” and “any experience” in order to isolate rookies or look at players with all levels of experience.

Also new this year are the graduation cap icons which help identify rookies more easily. You will also find this filter option available for NBA and NHL players this year.

We hope these changes will make the 2017 rookie drafts even easier!

QOTW: Player Rankings & League Scoring

Question of the Week: One of my team owners asked me a question that I didn’t know how to answer. Your player rankings – are they a general fantasy rankings, or are they custom to each league’s scoring set-up?

Answer: Currently we have one set of rankings that are the same across leagues. If the owner is an Edge subscriber, we also offer Dynasty and PPR rankings in additional to the regular rankings when viewing the NFL Cheat Sheet.

In the future, we’d love to tailor the rankings to each specific league according to their scoring rules — we can see where that would be a really helpful feature.

QOTW: Stopping an Email Draft Early

Question of the Week: Is there any way to stop an email draft in a keeper league early if I need to make a change to the draft order? I want to retain the players drafted so far.

Answer: You can temporarily stop an email draft in a keeper or redraft league, make the change and then restart the draft. (Note: This does not apply to live drafts. Once a live draft starts, it must be finished.)

To do this, go to League Settings > Edit Draft Options and choose “No draft, I’ll import the rosters” and click Save. Continue reading “QOTW: Stopping an Email Draft Early”

The 2017 Rookies Are Coming

Well, football fans, the NFL draft is upon us! Who will land the next Ezekiel Elliott?

Here’s some helpful info as to what to expect at Fleaflicker.com in regards to rookies:

#1: When are rookies added?
NFL rookies are added within 24 hours of the time they selected in their league’s entry draft. For NFL specifically, undrafted free agents are added at the start of training camps. If you are looking to set up a rookie draft next week, May 1 or later is a safe bet.

#2: How can I spot rookies on Fleaflicker?Screen Shot 2017-03-27 at 2.38.47 PM
New this year, NFL rookies can be easily spotted as they will have graduation cap icons next to their name during their first season. You will also notice that they don’t have stats listed from previous seasons like returning players.

QOTW: Unused Draft Picks

Question of the Week: My draft picks page is showing a bunch of “unused” draft picks and I cannot figure out why. I want to draft 6 rookies in our rookie draft but I only have 4 picks.

Answer: Unused draft picks represent a team’s keepers.

Let’s say your team has 40 rosters spots and 40 keepers allowed, and you have 36 keepers currently set. This leaves you with 4 viable picks in the draft, as you can only draft in as many rounds as needed to fill your roster. The 36 other picks will show in your draft pick list with a red highlight and the word “Unused.” If you want to draft in 6 rounds, you will need to decrease the keepers you have set to 34.

More info on setting up a rookie draft can be found here.

QOTW: MLB Starting Pitchers

Question of the Week: I cannot find on your site when Vince Valesquez, Tyler Chatwood, and Eduardo Rodriguez pitch this week. Where can I see this?

Answer: If a player is a projected started for the current day, you will see his match-up in bold, red font on your team page and in the player listing.  If you switch the “Showing”  drop-down at the top right of the page to “schedule” instead of “daily stats,” you will see which of your players are projected starters for the rest of the week.

QOTW: 15 Day DL Removal

Question of the Week: I see you have just incorporated the 10 day Disabled List but you have removed the 15 day.  I was wondering why?

Answer: This is a change that Major League Baseball made in the off-season. Click here for more details from MLB.com.

New Feature: Rookie Designation

Last season, we heard from a lot of members that they would love to see rookies called out in some way. Their wish has been granted! Brand-new to Fleaflicker in 2017 is a new visual indicator that makes rookies easier to spot. Simply look for the new graduation cap icon!

Screen Shot 2017-03-27 at 2.38.47 PM

You can see this new icon in action in both NBA and NHL leagues now, and it will be added for newly drafted NFL players. (NFL rookies will be added to our system within 48 hours of being drafted.)
