Question about Yahoo leagues...

Postby Dreggy1 » Tue Sep 06, 2005 6:28 pm

For standard leagues.....When is the deadline to do trading amonst bench and starting positions on MY team. It says something about each sunday. Does this mean my team is locked for the week until games that week are over? For example I have 2 players who will play thursday....after that game can I put those players on the bench and fill those spots for the weekend games? Anyone have a good summery of this?

Confused....
Thanks...

Confused ? yes!

You have a certain number of starters and you have 5 mins before game time to select your starters. After they are in a starting position and thier game starts that position is locked. If you don't have a starter position filled and all your bench players games start they can no longer be put in the starters position.

ok i understand that now.

After there game do they become unlocked? or are they locked for the rest of the day?

Also after thursdays games can I put those who played on the bench for the rest of the weekend and start guys who will play this weekend?
Thanks...

Once you play a player, that player and that position are done. This is to prevent exactly what you're asking about, if you start Tom Brady on thursday and he throws 3 int fubles twice and dosn't score you can't pull him and start Farve on Sunday. Thats just common sense though, part of starting players is the gamble that they will or won't play well.

ALL players won't be frozen for the week, only those players that PLAY during that time. So if you've got starters on your bench taht play at the 1:00 game, you better make sure they're starting or benched before they start playing because you can't move em.

yahoo transaction rules:

The deadline to complete all transactions (trades, waiver claims, and free agent claims) for a given week is 11:59 pm PT every Sunday.

However, you will only be able to add players to your active roster for the current week if the transaction is completed no later than five minutes before the start of the player's game. In other words, none of the active players on your team (players in a starting roster spot) involved in a move can have played or be within five minutes of their game's start time, or the transaction will not be allowed. So, for example, transactions for all active players who play at 10:00 am PT must be completed by 9:55 am PT.

You will be allowed to make transactions involving your bench players at any time during a week – even if a player's game has begun. However, you will not be permitted to activate any player who is already within the five-minute limit. All such players will have to remain on your bench until the following week.

Additionally, all intra-roster moves (switching players between active and bench spots) can be made until five minutes before the start of each player's game.

Also, bear in mind that your league may include a trading deadline. Click on the League Settings link from your league home page to view the configuration of your league. Trade deadlines do not impact the ability to add players via waivers or free agency.


yahoo roster rules:

1. You do not have to start a player at every roster position, but fantasy points and statistics will only be accumulated by those players on your starting roster.

2. Players are only eligible to play at those position(s) designated by Yahoo! Sports.

3. If you pick up a player, but later realize you did not want him on your team, you may immediately waive him. However, you can only claim and waive the same player two times every 24 hours

4. All active players earn fantasy points for all of your league's categories (you do not receive points for players on your bench). Points coming from categories not normally associated with a player's position (e.g., a kicker who throws a touchdown pass) are called miscellaneous points and are indicated by an * to the right of a player's point total.

5. All managers can set rosters for weeks in the future by going to the proper day on their team page and making the needed changes. However, all future lineups will be lost if a current player is dropped or traded, or if a new player is added to the current roster. So, if during Week 2, you submitted a roster for Weeks 3 and 4, but then go and pick up a free agent for Week 1, your future lineup changes will all be lost even though they had been saved earlier.
