QOTW: Opening Free Agency in 2017

Question of the Week: How do I open the player pool for waivers to run once a week and once a week only? Right now the draft hasn’t happened so all players are locked.

Answer: To open up free agency prior to your draft in a keeper league, you will need to go to League Settings > Edit Rosters, and select “These are complete rosters” in the bottom Keeper Options section. This will open up the player pool and you can adjust your waiver wire rules as needed.

To utilize your waiver system and have it run on the day of week you designate with no periods of first-come first-served free agency, make sure the League Settings > Edit Transaction Rules “Lock Free Agents During Preseason” setting is set to Yes.

QOTW: 2017 Draft Picks Missing

Question of the Week: I opened the player pool for the preseason and now my 2017 draft picks are missing. What happened?

Answer: When you open the player pool prior to the draft, the system thinks you have already drafted and therefore does not show you the 2017 draft picks. Don’t worry, though, they are still there! You will get them back fully intact when you switch back to the draft mode.

This will have some impact to owners who want to trade current season draft picks.

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: Activating the Next NFL Season

Question of the Week: When can I set things up for my spring rookie draft?

Answer: You will be able to activate the new season on Tuesday, 2/14/17 (Valentine’s Day). Trades, including trades of draft picks, can still happen prior to league activation.

Happy New Year to all of our members! Thank you for another tremendous year of fantasy sports.

QOTW: Post-Season Player Pool Access

Question of the Week: Our season just ended. Why are all of the players locked in the player listing?

Answer: Some league settings go on lock-down after the previous season’s playoffs complete so that we can finalize the results and also prep for the new season. Leagues will be able to be activated for the new season on 2/14/17.

What IS available between now and 2/14:
– Trading between owners of players or draft picks
– Owners can access Team > Settings > Keepers to update their keepers
– Ability for the commish to edit scoring rules, waiver wire rules, transaction rules
– Ability for the commish to edit the rosters to make any player removals or additions needed
– Commish can use League > Settings to clear non-keepers once everyone has them set

What IS NOT available until 2/14:
– Opening the player pool and running waivers
– Replacement or addition of new owners
– Changes to the roster requirements

Our apologies for any inconvenience this causes. We are looking to shorten this “dark” period in the future.
