Question about Best Buy Challenge?

Postby warrick95 » Thu Nov 25, 2004 2:53 pm

Are you allowed to edit your team after the first game of the week starts...meaning, edit your players playing on Sunday/Monday? I wanted to edit Ahman Green, but they wouldn't let me do so. It said "You have tried to select a player who is locked." Is that the case? I only had Green in there just in case he played...I wanted to switch out in case Fisher or Najeh started...and that's what it looks like.

Don't know. Wayne is the only player locked on mine. I just swapped DST's just to see and had no problem.

I thought tagged Manning and Roy were the only guys locked on mine, but I can't swap out Ahman for Najeh for some reason. That's strange, as their FAQs state that I can change up to a certain time before EACH player's game, not the first game of the week.

I tried switching a player too, who isn't playing until Sunday night, but when I clicked on submit roster it refreshed and showed the old player. I guess you can't make changes.

Something similar happened to me but in my case it was when I was trying to submit a line up. I would enter the players and hit submit and the screen would change back to the original edit line up screen, like it never happened. It turns out something was wrong with the site and when I came back one day later my line up appeared when I logged in, so it actually went through.

Thanks for the help. This sucks. I had Manning X2, J. Jones, and R. Williams today, which is pretty good, but my week goes down the drain unless I can edit out Ahman Green.

You can edit, just keep trying. I had Manning 2x also, and stokely.
I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.

I had the same problem yesterday. I tried swapping a couple guys, and i got the same "locked" error. However a friend of mine changed some players today no problem, so maybe that was just an issue yesterday. But when I checked mine again today, my lineup was completely different! There were "locked" players with NO player selected, my x2 was moved to a different player, there were some new players who i never picked, and there were about five players that it just forgot and showed the "select a player" drop-down!!! I emailed BB three times today about it, but I haven't heard anything yet. I had 179 points from 4 players on Thursday, so I better still be in the running. If not, I'm going to be really upset about this...

Wait, for the people who said that you can edit, does it immediately change your roster, or do you see it changed when you check it later in the day?

I have Ahman Green in there and I MUST edit him out for Najeh. Then, I can bump up a couple of my WRs. It'd bite if I was stuck with Green.

I got 115 from 3 players yesterday, which, although not great, is decent, considering how much I like my matchups for tomorrow and Monday.

Well, it's still not working. :-t

I did send them an email and their response did not help at all.

This email is in response to ticket number 6766, which was submitted to Best Buy fantasy support

Thanks for the email. Unfortunately at this time we have been unable to reproduce the problem on our end. We have run system checks and are coming up with no problems. Sorry for the inconvenience but at this point there is nothing further that we can do. Let us know if you have any further problems.

Thank you,

---Original Question ---
Why can't I change unlocked players to other players? It is Thursday afternoon and I am trying to change Ahman Green to somebody else. Ahman does not play until Monday Night. The rules state that I can change a player anytime up to a certain period of time before his game. Thank you.
