QOTW: Holding Two Drafts in a Redraft League

Question of the Week: Is it possible for me to do a startup draft and then have a separate draft for rookies only? We plan to do an email draft.

Answer: Yes, this is doable in redraft leagues! Below is an example flow to follow that works well with email drafts:

1) Set your roster requirements for total number of roster spots you want to fill  via League Settings > Edit Roster Requirements (startup roster + rookie roster = total roster spots)

QOTW: All-Star Games Scheduling

Question of the Week: Is it possible to nix the short week and/or combine weeks on Fleaflicker given the all-star games?

Answer: In daily sports (MLB, NBA, and NHL), a short week may be combined with the next week only at the start or end of a season. (From the Owner’s Manual)

As a workaround, Commissioners can to remove match-ups for the week of the All-Star festivities altogether, so that it’s a “bye week” of sorts for the league. No fantasy games happen in your league that week, so no owners can be affected negatively.  Continue reading “QOTW: All-Star Games Scheduling”

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”

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.
