NBA Season Update

The NBA has released their plans on resuming the 2019-20 season, allowing 22 teams to participate in 88 games starting July 30. While we’d love to offer some additional fantasy gameplay, we’ve determined that it will be best for the current season to be concluded as is.

One of the key reasons we came to this conclusion is due to the narrowed player pool and the challenges that would pose to owners with players from those teams; there simply may not be a fair way to handle the player shortage in all leagues.

For now, leagues may see the top ranked team with the championship trophy, however our plan is to remove the trophy as the season will be considered incomplete.

While we don’t have the capability for commissioners to designate a specific team as the season champion via the tool at this time, if you do want to declare a champion for the 2019-2020 season, we recommend sharing the news via the Commissioner’s Note and posting the details in the league forum.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at info@fleaflicker.com. Thank you for playing fantasy basketball on Fleaflicker this season, and we look forward the start of the 2020-2021 season; leagues will be able to be activated later this summer!

NHL Season Update

The official details as to how the NHL plans to complete the 2019-2020 season have been shared on NHL.com. “The NHL announced its Return to Play Plan on Tuesday with 24 teams in competition for the Stanley Cup. The tournament will begin with a 16-team, eight-series Qualifying Round and a Seeding Round Robin among the top four teams in each conference to determine seeds for the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The NHL paused the regular season March 12 due to concerns surrounding the coronavirus and its remaining 189 games will not be completed. The 12 qualifying teams from the Eastern and Western conferences were determined by points percentage as of that date. Seven teams did not qualify.”

Fleaflicker’s fantasy league experience is designed to complete before the start of the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs. Therefore, we plan to officially bring the NHL fantasy season to a close. For now, leagues may see the top ranked team with the championship trophy, however our plan is to remove the trophy as the season will be considered incomplete.

The NFL draft is upon us! Who will land the next Saquon Barkley or Baker Mayfield?

Here’s what to expect at Fleaflicker:

#1: When are NFL rookies added?
NFL rookies are added to our player listing within 24-48 hours of the time they drafted, and then they’ll be evaluated and added to the overall rankings as quickly as possible. 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: Can we run a rookie draft on Fleaflicker?
Commissioners who want to set up rookie-only drafts can do so using the recently added League >> Settings >> Configure Draft settings. This allows a commish to specify the exact number of rounds in a draft and provides the option to constrain the draft to rookies only. There is also a setting that allows commissioners to count players in the IR and Taxi Squad sections as separate from the draft or treat them just like any other players.
