2019/20 NBA Mid-Season Eligibility Updates

The 2019/20 NBA season is at the mid-season point and player eligibility updates have been made. The reason we update at this point is to account for players who are playing at other positions (some or perhaps even all of the time) other than the position they were designated to play at the start of the season. NBA eligibility updates only occur one time after the season start; during the All-Star break.

2019/20 NHL Mid-Season Eligibility Updates

The 2019/20 NHL season is at the mid-season point and player eligibility updates have been made. The primary reason we update at this point is to account for players who have shifted consistently to another position that they weren’t playing at the start of the season.

While Fleaflicker will never remove eligibility, we may add dual eligibility on a case-by-case basis. For example, if a player was designated LW at the start of the season, but is now primarily playing RW, we’d update him to have both LW and RW eligibility (W). However, even if he has permanently moved to RW, we will still maintain the LW for the remainder of the season.

Owners may notice that one the updates has taken them over the maximum for one of the positions. They will need to either reduce a player at the position over the max, or they can ask their commissioner about increasing the maximum for the position.

The following players have been reviewed and approved for dual eligibility updates, effective 1/26/2020:
