Ty Montgomery Position Update

Due to Green Bay using Ty Montgomery more in the RB position vs. WR in last week’s game, we have expanded his designation to include both positions so that owners can choose which position to start him in. Duality decisions are made on a case-by-case basis, looking at different criteria. Sites like ESPN Fantasy and Rotoworld also updated Montgomery this week.

There are two complexities to be aware of and potentially solve for with duality players: Continue reading “Ty Montgomery Position Update”

QOTW: Players Locked in the IR

Question of the Week: One of my owners has a player that needs to be moved out of the IR due to an injury status change, however the player is already locked because his game started. The owner can’t make any other roster changes because of this. What should he do?

Answer: We have a case open so that we get a better solution in place in the future. In the meantime, there is a workaround — the commish can use League Settings > Set Starting Lineups as an override to move the player out of the IR.

QOTW: Calculating Waiver Wire Priority

Question of the Week: Does the weekly waiver wire priority go by points scored in the current week or for total points cumulative?

Answer: The league rank is based off of the cumulative total, and it uses these stats when doing so:

  • Best head-to-head record
  • Most average points/game
  • Hardest schedule (record)
  • Hardest schedule (points)

QOTW: Red Bar Indicator

Question of the Week: Sometimes there is a red bar next to the small dot indication that the team/player has a chance to score. But what does the red bar mean?

Answer: The red bar helps inform you when the team is in the red zone. Another tip, if you hover over the small red dot, you will get some additional insight on exactly what’s going on in the game real-time.


QOTW: Placing a Player on IR

Question of the Week: How do you put a player on injured reserve?

Answer: On your team page, click the drop-down option in the Availability column and if the player is eligible, one of the options will be IR (vs. Bench for example). Choose that and click Save at the bottom.

QOTW: Official NFL Stat Changes

Question of the Week: If there are any stat corrections in any given week, when are they applied to Fleaflicker’s scores?

Answer: The NFL issues official changes to the previous week’s games every Thursday. If such a change affects your league, Fleaflicker will automatically re-score the previous week’s games on Thursday at 4 PM ET. Any changes announced by the NFL after Thursday are not automatically applied your league (this seldom happens). However, commissioners can always manually edit box scores at any time.

If any fantasy match-up outcome is affected by the stat changes, your league will be automatically alerted. You can also see the exact stat changes for any prior weeks by navigating to Scores » Stat Changes.

Note: Commissioners can opt out of stat changes by going to League » Settings » Edit Tiebreak Rules » Retroactively apply official stat changes and selecting No.
