Yahoo eligibility

Postby waterproof » Wed Oct 18, 2006 9:07 am

How much time does a player have to play at another position to become eligible for that position? I know in baseball it’s like 10 games. What is it in football? A certain number of plays? Anyone know?

doesn't change.

Football isn't as cut-and-dried as baseball, so the position doesn't change. It's not like Bush or Westbrook will ever get WR eligiblity or something. In my memory the only ones recently were colston and robinson (this year), cooley (last year), and kordell stewart.

It's probably better that way. And to have multimpositional eligiblity in baseball doesn;t affect the game as much as it would in football, since football is just total points, whereas baseball is roto. So werid eligibilities are cool, but they can also affect your stat dispersement.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

Yahoo sets player elligibility in the offseason or preseason and doesn't change them during the regular season. Next year, Colston will probably lose his TE elligibility just like how Cooley lost his RB elligibility this year.

And I can't recall Yahoo ever GIVING a player additional position elligibility once they've been set. They take away, but don't give I guess.
