New Feature: Keeper Counts

One of our top goals at Fleaflicker is to make every fantasy interaction easy, fast and simple.

We noticed that it was often a time-consuming proposition to have to count up the number of keepers currently set, particularly in larger fantasy leagues. Commissioners would often have to do this pre-draft for each and every team, and owners would have to do it as they were tweaking their keeper settings as well.

To remove the counting burden, we’ve added counters to each of the keeper setting areas. Continue reading “New Feature: Keeper Counts”

QOTW: Limiting Draft Rounds

Question of the Week: We are starting a new dynasty league with 30 players rostered. How can we have draft picks only limited to 5 rounds and not 30?

Answer: Once your league owners all set their keepers, you will see their number of viable picks reduce. For each keeper an owner sets, that is one less draft pick. So, in a league with 30 players on each roster, you would want each owner to set 25 keepers which will perfectly set you up for a 5-round draft.  Continue reading “QOTW: Limiting Draft Rounds”

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!
