For Love of the Game: New MLB Scoring Rules

pexels-photo-139762 (2)As MLB players report to spring training, we are excited to share about the addition of seven new scoring rules that commissioners can consider adding for the 2018 fantasy baseball season:

  1. Net wins (wins minus losses)
  2. Wins + quality starts
  3. Blown saves
  4. Double plays turned (DPT)
  5. Fielding percentage (FPCT)
  6. Save opportunities (SOP)
  7. Total chances

Play ball!

New Feature: Allow $0 Bids (Or Don’t!)

New this year to Fleaflicker is the ability to allow or disallow $0 bids in blind bidding (FAAB) waiver auctions. So commissioners,  if you prefer to ensure all of your owners are bidding at least $1 for players, visit League Settings > Edit Waiver Wire Rules to update this setting to No. Or, keep it set to the default Yes if you are fine with $0 bids.

We hope this gives commissioners added flexibility in any FAAB leagues!

New Feature: Mark All as Read

Good news to those of you who have been hoping for an easier way to clear out old forum messages and activity log entries, the feature you have been asking for has arrived!

New this month is a “Mark All as Read” button added to both the league Messages forum and the Recent Activity log. Continue reading “New Feature: Mark All as Read”

QOTW: Opening Free Agency Pre-Draft

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 and click Save. This will open up the player pool and you can adjust your waiver wire rules as needed.

How To Solve a Problem Like Ohtani

Shohei Ohtani, the international baseball phenom described by some as Japan’s Babe Ruth, has taken the world of Major League Baseball by storm as he joins the roster of the Los Angeles Angels. The big question for fantasy sites is how a player like Ohtani, who pitches and may also see regular batting time, will be handled.

QOTW: Commish-Executed Trades

Question of the Week: We had a trade executed over the weekend. After the trade was executed, it moved the players and the points for the week.  We thought the trade wouldn’t have any effect until next week. Is there a way to restore the lost points for the team affected?

Answer:  If a commissioner executes a trade (vs. letting it process normally), it will immediately move the players and their associated points. If this was not desired, the commish can use League Settings > Edit Rosters to remove and then re-add the players back to the original rosters.  The commish can also use League Settings > Set Starting Lineups if the players need to go into the starting lineup.
