The draft is over, now what?

Posted By glam sugar on Oct 8, 2008 at 7:26AM

Now that we've got our rosters, it's time to look them over and you can add/drop any free agents you'd like or propose trades with other teams.

You'll also need to set your lineups. Games start tomorrow night, for my team, I only have 5 players in action but I put them all in my starting lineup. The players who are on the bench have a BN to the left of their name, if any are playing you won't get credit for any points they get if they are on your bench.

My bench players for Sunday's lineup are highlighted in green. As you can see in the Opp. column, a couple guys play games but I left them on the bench for other players who I think may do better. You want to try and keep your lineup as full as you can so you get as many points as possible throughout the season. I try and do my lineups a week at a time. I also watch and make sure there aren't injuries so I don't have those players in my starting lineup. Once you have the players you want in the starting lineup, make sure to hit Submit so it saves your lineup changes.

If a player is on the injured reserve he'll have a red IR next to his name. You may keep that player and place him on your injured reserve and pickup someone to take his spot. However, when the player comes back from the injury, you'll have to drop a player from your team to make room on the roster.

I hope this all makes sense, let me know if you have any questions.

Good luck! :woohoo:
