RULES: STANDARD ROSTER SETTINGS
Free Standard leagues will draft players from the whole NFL Universe. That means you will be able to draft both National Football Conference and American Football Conference players for your team.
Free Standard League rosters have slots for a total of sixteen (16) players per team. There are nine (9) Starting slots. See below for specific Starting positions. Additionally, there are seven (7) Bench slots.
All 10-team standard leagues play with the same roster settings, as seen here:
|STANDARD GAME ROSTER SETTINGS|
|Total Roster Size: 16
Total Starters: 9
Total On Bench: 7 (0 IR)
BENCH (BE): The NFL players designated to be on reserve by the fantasy owner. These players will be inactive and unable to accumulate points after their weekly game has started. The maximum number of BE slots is determined by the number of starting slots in your league. The maximum number of players you can have on your free standard team roster (active and bench) is 16.
SETTING YOUR LINEUP
You decide which players to start for each week of competition. Your Team page allows you to analyze each of your current players, review their performance (previous week, season to date, etc.) and freely move players between your Starting roster and Bench. Roster moves involving a player may be made right up until that player's team is scheduled to begin playing for the week.
When you make transactions, you must move one active player to the bench, or to waivers, when moving an inactive "benched" player to your Starting 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.
ADDING / DROPPING PLAYERS
In Free Standard leagues there are going to be many unclaimed players available in the player pool; these players are called "Free Agents". You may want to pick up one of these Free Agents (players not currently on a team in your league) for your elite team. You can search the player pool by going to the Players page.
NOTE: If you wish to claim a player from free agency, you must have an open roster slot or drop one of your current players in exchange.
