Setting Your Lineup

Setting Your Lineup Overview

  • Decide which players to start for each day of competition
  • Your team page allows you to analyze each of your current players, review their performance (previous day/week, year to date etc.) and freely move players between your active roster and bench
  • Roster moves involving a player may be made right up until that player's team is scheduled to begin playing in their game for that scoring period.
  • You must move one active player to the bench or to waivers when moving an inactive/benched player to your active lineup. If you make a move that violates a roster slot, an error message will appear, notifying you to double-check the proposed transaction. You will need to ensure that you are moving players into eligible slots per Position Eligibility
