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.

QOTW: League ID Identification

Question of the Week: How do I find my league ID?

Answer: The league ID is the number at the end of your league home page URL. So for example, if your league home page is located at https://www.fleaflicker.com/nfl/leagues/187425, then your league ID is 187425.

QOTW: Watch-List Alerts

Question of the Week: Why am I not able to add more players to my watch-list?

Answer: There is a max of 75 players allowed on the watch-list. We are looking into increasing the number. In the meantime, the recommended workaround is to deselect less critical players in order to free up spots for new players.

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.

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.
